A Visit To The Forbidden City
Three Arizona state senators ignore SPLC ban and survive
American Patrol Report -- May 26

Arizona State Senators Allan and Melvin stand 60 feet south of the Forbidden City (ABP's ranch) – May 21, 2011

    Despite warnings that American Border Patrol's ranch was off-limits to any respectful person, in the past week three sitting Arizona State Senators actually visited the forbidden place and survived!
    Last Saturday State Senators Sylvia Allen and Al Melvin visited the ranch, together with about fifty concerned citizens. There they discovered much, but not torture chambers or hate literature. Instead they found high tech hardware ABP has used for years to monitor border activity. They actually saw the Border Hawk unmanned aerial vehicle that pioneered the use of this type of technology on the border. They stood in front of the Pterodactyl ultra light airplane that was used to show that border radar couldn't see this type of flying machine. And, they were actually allowed to see ABP's online maps of where the border fence really is. (Federal government computers are not allowed to access ABP's Web site due to a ban by the SPLC.)
    They watched as the feared Glenn Spencer briefed them on the border situation. Instead of attacking Mexicans as the SPLC suggested he might, Spencer explained exactly how the federal government went about avoiding an objective assessment of how well the U.S. Border Patrol was doing. He explained how the Sonic Barrier system could do the job. After that, the visitors were given a live demonstration of the Sonic Barrier system.
    Now, the fearless Senator Allen has even published a report of her visit!
    Then, last Monday, state senator Steve Smith visited the forbidden ranch -following an aerial tour of the border with the hated Glenn Spencer at the controls! Somehow he survived to tell an amazing tale.
