Some thoughts following our trip to Mexico. . . .

I was not at all impressed at Department of Homeland Security‘s Janet Napolitano‘s recent speech on, “Border security continues to be a priority for the federal government.” What a joke! As far as I’m concerned, the government has no interest in border security along the Mexican border.

Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu, however, indicated that Napolitano’s speech was selective in what it emphasized and what it did not disclose.

“2010 was a historic year when it comes to securing and managing our borders and enforcing our immigration laws,” Napolitano said. “There are now more resources on the southwest border in terms of personnel, technology, and infrastructure than ever before in American history. And we continue to see progress on every metric.”

Napolitano’s multi-state speaking tour is nothing more than a dog and pony show. Unfortunately, the majority of the “dumbed down” population is incapable of understanding the sick world in which they live. They would rather follow the ridiculous actions of idiot celebrities.

“This novel concept of enforcing the law, which is the very foundation of who we are as Americans, is the rule of law,” Babeu said. “Those three components of soldiers, build the infrastructure, and enforce the law will secure the border.”

“We’re bringing a heavy-handed enforcement against these [drug] cartels doing the jobs the feds have, literally, refused to do,” Babeu said. “They’ve try to handcuff us by taking us to court at a time when we need help and to fight us every step of the way.”

Babeu, who is the first Arizona sheriff and the first sheriff in his first elected term to be named Sheriff of the Year, said Napolitano’s assessment reveals that she is out of touch with what the conditions are on what he calls “the front line” fight against illegal immigration.

“This shows you how divorced from reality the secretary of homeland security really is,” Babeu said.

Govt Turns a Blind Eye to Drug, Alien Smuggling on Southern Border

Yet, today foreign nationals are entering the United States illegally on footpaths through wilderness along the southern border. Many of these lands designated as federal wilderness are virtually controlled by Mexican drug cartels. Yet the Obama administration, environmentalists, and even Arizona’s Pima County Sheriff whose jurisdiction borders Mexico, downplay the impact of the cartels and the “undocumented immigrants” trashing “untrammeled” wilderness.

With federal officials treating damage to fragile ecosystems as minor annoyances, the cumulative effect is a progressive ceding of public lands to Mexican drug lords.

As long as the rich bankers launder the illegal drug money and corporations exploit the cheap labor, our country will continue to descend along the “road to Zimbabwe".

Is Illegal Immigration Destroying The Southwest United States? 19 Immigration Facts That Very Few People Are Talking About

In the United States today, if you want to get on an airplane you must subject yourself to some of the most invasive security measures imaginable, and yet every year our government knowingly allows millions of people to move into the United States by simply hopping over the border and then provides them with all kinds of free benefits once they get here.

The drug war being waged on both sides of the border is so violent that it is almost unimaginable. For example, one very prominent Mexican assassin known as "the soupmaker" has confessed that he made approximately 300 bodies disappear by dissolving them in acid baths.

We went to Nogales, Sonora, Mexico this weekend . . .

The AZ unit of the National Socialist Movement conducted a fact finding mission to the Mexican border and points south. Over the last couple of decades, I’ve visited Nogales, AZ on a number of occasions. Things have really declined since my last visit.

After walking by the numerous stores that specialize in cheap Chinese goods and what appeared to be inferior “knock-off” fashions, we made our way to the port of entry. There was no fancy sign, just spray paint on a barricade directed us to the check point.

We all noticed very quickly that we were the only White People walking around. Tourism is way down due to the poor economy and the drug violence that plagues many border towns is in the rise. The locals were busy checking us out and sizing us up. This is one town where you need to know the difference between a “mark” and a “ringer”.

We were quickly approached by a multitude of shady characters. Some tried to sell us drugs. Another offered to direct us to “womens” and even “mens” of all ages. Jokingly, one of us suggested a midget or some farm animals. Old ladies walked up to us and begged for money. Children were selling candy. None of us were buying.

I tried some of the local cuisine. They said the stuff in the tacos I ordered was beef. They weren’t that bad for $1.25/2. I have yet to experience any gastric discomfort. If Indiana Jones can eat bugs and monkey brains, I can certainly handle Nogales food.

We decided to return to our motel rooms after crossing back in to the United States. As we turned the corner, we noticed some law enforcement activity. A group of illegal aliens were caught by the Nogales Police and the Border Patrol just a few doors away from our motel rooms. They were lined up against a roll off trash dumpster. After conducting a search of their persons, the agents loaded them into a van to be sent for processing and deportation.

A day in Nogales, Sonora!

Walking is a popular way to cross the border and Nogales, AZ has many guarded parking lots close to the port-of-entry. Just follow Interstate 19 to the end in Nogales and the lot attendants such as American Valet and Ed's Parking Lot, will help you . The cost to park your vehicle all day is very reasonable, generally under $4.00, and most of the shopping and eating attractions are close to the border and within easy walking distance.

It’s hard to make shit smell like a rose, but the Nogales-Santa Cruz County Chamber of Commerce did the best they could. One of the most noticeable things travelers encounter are the foul smells as they approach the border.

Crossing the Border into the U.S.

I had my passport in hand but the border guard behind the desk, in a jovial mood, prodded us to respond to his unasked question. The answer was “U.S. Citizen,” and the question, which he never asked, was “What is your citizenship?” He asked if we were bringing anything back into the U.S. We told him about our purchases, and he waved us through. During the day, there are short lines from time to time and documents are examined with a little more interest.

If your papers are in order, crossing the border is easy. I would like to caution everybody to watch your backs while in Mexico. Times have been tough and as in any city, you have to be aware of your surroundings. Don’t get drunk and stupid or you may find yourself bleeding to death in the gutter.

People will be there with offers of alcohol and women. Be careful! Once you enter a building, you are going to be fresh out of friends and options. Always leave yourself “an out”.

“"What sets worlds in motion is the interplay of differences, their attractions and repulsions. Life is plurality, death is uniformity. By suppressing differences and peculiarities, by eliminating different civilizations and cultures, progress weakens life and favors death. The ideal of a single civilization for everyone, implicit in the cult of progress and technique, impoverishes and mutilates us. Every view of the world that becomes extinct, every culture that disappears, diminishes a possibility of life"” --Octavio Paz
