Q: How do you keep deported and unwelcome foreigners out of the United States? A: Secure the border.

The answer couldn't be any simpler. We have a border problem and the government dances around the most obvious solution to keep unwelcome foreigners out of our country. That is securing the border. Oddly, Mexican president Felipe Calderon denounced Arizona's SB 1070 claiming that we are treating his people like criminals. On the flip side, Mexico treats their illegal aliens like the criminal they are. Mexico happens to have some of the toughest immigration policies in the Western Hemisphere.

This issue is not really about people. It's about the billions of dollars that pour across the border into Mexico. Most problems are about money. That should not surprise any of us.

Mexico even had the nerve to ask the U.S. Government to stop deporting violent criminals. This idiotic demand was made at a conference where Mayors from Mexico and US border cities met. Apparently, Mexico is being overwhelmed by criminals as a result of our immigration policies.

They also suggest that these criminals are responsible for much of the cartel violence that plagues their country. That's one more good reason not to have them here.

As it happens, Jose Reyes Ferriz, the Mayor of Cuidad Juarez, said that 30,000 out of 80,000 people deported to his city had committed violent crimes in the United States. Perhaps, Mexico should lock these offenders up as soon as they hit Mexican streets, if they don't want them committing more crimes.

As far as I'm concerned, the Mexican government can put them all face down in a pit as long as they don't return to the U.S. They shouldn't have been our problem in the first place. Why are they complaining to us?

Illegal re-entry now top federal crime in U.S.

WASHINGTON - Illegal re-entry became the most-frequent federal criminal charge in the United States during the first six months of fiscal 2011, a pattern that was mirrored in Arizona during that period.

From October through March, federal prosecutors filed 18,552 illegal re-entry cases nationally, more than any other charge,

Agent Mario Escalante, spokesman for the border patrol in the Tucson sector said, “consequence-delivery systems” like Operation Streamline have helped reduce the flow of traffic across the border.

Change in ID-card law heightens migrants' fears

It is known as the "matricula consular" in Spanish. For years, hundreds of thousands of Latino immigrants in Arizona have relied on the photo ID cards issued by Mexico and other foreign governments to open bank accounts, enroll children in school, register cars, rent apartments and prove their identity during traffic stops by police.

But the use of the card, most popular with illegal immigrants ineligible to obtain state driver's licenses or other forms of government-issued ID, was thrown into turmoil last month when a new state immigration-enforcement law took effect. The law bans state and local government entities from accepting consular ID cards issued by foreign governments

For one thing, the obviously liberal writer of this article is trying to call illegal aliens “migrants” People who are in this country legally will have valid forms of ID better known as passports and visas, minimizing the need for "matricula consular" cards. Those who are not here legally, need to get out. Would American citizens abroad get this same consideration? I highly doubt it.

As the article states, "We don't want illegal aliens to be able to do business in Arizona. We want to make it as difficult as possible for them so they will go back to their countries and immigrate legally, if they so choose," said state Sen. Ron Gould, R-Lake Havasu City, sponsor of the law banning the IDs at government agencies.

U.S. immigration officials call off deportation agreement with states

U.S. immigration officials, who for months have insisted that states sign up to participate in a controversial program to identify and deport immigrants who commit crimes, abruptly changed their approach Friday and terminated agreements with nearly 40 states.

In a letter to governors, John Morton, head of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said the government was terminating Secure Communities agreements with nearly 40 states, including Arizona, after determining that the federal government does not need the agreement or cooperation of state officials to legally run the program.

This change came about because Democratic governors from numerous states refused to cooperate. It would appear that these traitorous governors are loyal to Mexican president Felipe Calderon. Calderon doesn't want Mexican criminals back in Mexico where they belong, either.

As a result of this program, Arizona has deported over 15,000 illegal aliens. Despite strong objections from the open borders crowd, the program is moving forward.

After Action Report: Saturday, July 30, 2011. . . We're Sending the Message Back to Mexico. You're NOT Welcome!

As a follow up to a previous patrol, we secured several known drug smuggler spotter positions in the Sonoran Desert National Monument. The idea is to keep pressure on the cartels and send them the message that they and their illegal cargo are not welcome in the United States. We are forcing these criminal enterprises to re-think their strategy.

While part of the team ascended the surrounding hills, other members of the patrol provided constant security by using spotting scopes. Radio traffic was also monitored.

Several hours into the patrol, a k-9 patrol member became overheated and encountered some cholla cactus. At this point, we concluded the patrol and evacuated the K-9 to a rear area for re-hydration and first aid. Note: Dogs are less than cooperative when it comes to pulling out cactus needles.

We came to a point where we were almost out of the area of operation when we observed several assorted vehicles parked along the road. I saw several subjects in the wash to the immediate west of the road. Some were wearing camouflage and others were wearing street clothes. I was able to make a quick identification of one of the vehicles and determined them to be "friendlies".

It's of up most importance to maintain constant vigilance while exiting the area of operation. It's even more important to correctly identify all those persons we encounter out in the field. I was fortunate enough to have recognized a vehicle and its' owner. This allowed me to quickly assess the situation.

Our patrols require us to make quick decisions that potentially have life and death consequences. That being the situation, we must keep focused and alert at all times.

Following our debriefing in the rear area, I served up a crock pot full of beef stew. Some of our operations have been know to stretch out for days and we need to keep the troops well fed and hydrated.

Alleged head of Mexico cartel's killers arrested

MEXICO CITY - Federal police have captured the alleged leader of a ruthless gang of killers who work for a drug cartel in the violent border of Ciudad Juarez, Mexican news media said Saturday.

The suspect, Jose Antonio Acosta Hernandez, is wanted by the U.S. government on charges of murdering a U.S. consulate employee and her husband last year in Ciudad Juarez, which is across the border from El Paso, Texas.

One down and thousands more like this scum to go. Each time a high profile cartel figure is arrested or taken out, there are dozens more like Hernandez waiting to take his place.

Heroin, Cocaine, Meth Busts Up at Border (Video)

The Border Battle is not just about illegal immigrants -- drugs are also a big problem.

Over the past few months, we've seen video and pictures of Border Patrol agents uncovering huge stores of pot.

On Friday morning, we're learning from Customs and Border Patrol agents that they are seeing an increase in heroin, cocaine and meth busts.

Recently, we encountered drug smugglers that were left to die out in the desert by their bosses. These cartels are so ruthless that they abandon the drug mules that make their wealth possible. This is the mind set of the enemy we're dealing with. How can people like that be reasoned with? They're nothing but greedy savages.

SB 1070: Still Controversial One Year Later

PHOENIX - It was one year ago on Friday that Senate Bill 1070 officially went into effect. And while Arizona's tough immigration law is challenged in federal court, it's still had a major impact on our state since it was signed into law.

Friday morning was quiet and peaceful at the capitol, but that wasn't the case just a year ago, when SB 1070 actually went into affect.

So, how has it affected our state and other states across the country?

Phoenix happens to be enjoying record increases in convention and tourist business. The claims that millions of dollars in lost revenue is a fraud perpetuated by left wing activists. Out-of-state liberal groups, sympathetic to illegal aliens notify the Chamber of Commerce and state that they were planning to hold a convention in Arizona, but due to SB 1070, they decided not to come. The whole thing is a lie. They never planned on coming to Arizona in the first place. The media still reports it as lost revenue despite the whole thing being a scam.

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” --Dr. Joseph Goebbels
