Mexico Threatens Suits Over Guard Patrols

Isn’t this interesting? Mexico is all ready to launch lawsuits against the U.S. for protecting our own damn border. Why lawsuits? Well, Mexico is worried about the security and safety of the would-be border jumpers. Kinda ironic huh? I was 100% positive the Mexican government didn’t give a rats ass about their citizens, guess I was wrong.

CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico – Mexico said Tuesday that it would file lawsuits in U.S. courts if National Guard troops on the border become directly involved in detaining migrants.

Mexican border officials also said they worried that sending troops to heavily trafficked regions would push illegal migrants into more perilous areas of the U.S.-Mexican border to avoid detection.

President Bush announced Monday that he would send 6,000 National Guard troops to the 2,000-mile border, but they would provide intelligence and surveillance support to Border Patrol agents, not catch and detain illegal immigrants.

Note, lawsuits happen “if National Guard troops on the border become directly involved in detaining migrants.” Migrants? Excuse me, but these aren’t fucking migrants. They’re illegal immigrants trying to make it to the U.S. for a better life. Sorry, but they’re criminals.

On a related note, Hyscience has a list of Republican Senators that voted with the Democrats on the immigration issue. Someone should probably let them know what a bad decision they made. At least bring it to their attention that they’re ignoring the will of their constituents, it’s the courteous thing to do.

Commies in Bed With Illegals?

Dan at Riehl World View brings up a good point, where has the MSM been in promoting all these pro-immigrant protests?

Probably backing off after they noticed some communist groups offering their support to the immigrants/illegals. Donkey Cons has some history on these groups and a little about how they feel on this whole illegal immigration issue. Interesting…

Bush: No Amnesty, No Mass Deportation

I was impressed with President Bush’s speech lastnight. He did’t get out of it though without looking like a jackass, thanks to CNN. CNN cut to his rehersal speech for some reason, Bush was in mid-sentence then stopped to look over at an advisor or something before CNN left the video feed. Expose The Left has video of the error made by CNN.

Anyway, Bush made some great points in his speech lastnight. I watched most of it, although I missed the first 5 minutes or so. He’s basically attempting to make it nearly impossible for businesses to hire illegals. Along with that, a beefed up border patrol force will add security to the mexican-american border.

The National Guard has 6000 troops en-route to the border. There was footage on the local news lastnight of illegals getting all upset about National Guard troops being deployed. They claim we’re militarizing the mexican border. Sorry guys, but that’s not the case. The National Guard is there to provide support to border patrol. Bush specifically said lastnight that the National Guard wouldn’t play a role in directly enforcing laws. Any laws being enforced will still be done so by the border patrol, not the Guard.

Bush’s plan is pretty viable, from what I can tell. There’s no way we can deport 11 million illegals, it’s just not a possibility, although I wish it were. Those who are currently working illegally in the United States will have to go through all the legal channels before they’re “legal” to work. How many of them will do so? Not many probably. Richard at Hyscience doesn’t think Bush’s plan is so great, it’s too little too late for him.

None of this will work without participation from the entire business community. And the business community needs help from the government. Document fraud is everywhere. There’s currently no way for a company to prove that the documents given to them haven’t been forged. This is where the bio-metric cards Bush mentioned lastnight come into play. A fingerprint can’t be forged, not easily anyway.

I’m thankful we’re where we currently are on this immigration debate. I, for one, had doubts we would even reach this point. It’s clear drastic changes need to be made to our immigration policies. If not that, then we need to at least start policing our border with Mexico. I think we’re on the right path though, Bush’s plan is achievable and provides the means to enforce what illegals do once inside the country. Let’s face it, there’s always going to be a steady supply of illegals flowing from Mexico to the U.S. Hopefully this won’t open up an even more deadly black market in which illegals are traded back and forth…

Bush Endorses Amnesty. Sorta.

There’s been an enormous amount of immigration talk lately. Congress is currently looking at various immigration reform proposals. Newt Gingrich thinks the U.S. should just start enforcing our current immigration laws, which really would make the most sense.

Apparently, President Bush “generally favors plans to give millions of illegal immigrants a chance at U.S. citizenship without leaving the country, but does not want to be more publicly supportive because of opposition among conservative House Republicans, according to senators who attended a recent White House meeting.” Granting amnesty to illegals would probably force me to move out of the country for good. Although, this could possibly result in a huge voter turnout by hispanics in favor of republicans.

I’ll be writing more about immigration in the next couple days, and how the mexican-american population usually manages to sabotage their own agenda.

Jay Bennish on The Today Show

Jay Bennish got a hell of a make-over for his Today Show appearance yesterday. Michelle Malkin has a before and after picture. He doesn’t have that hippie look so much anymore. Now he’s just sportin a little weasel look.

Matt Lauer likes Jay Bennish a whole lot it would seem. He pretty much started off the interview on the defense for Bennish. Ian at Expose the Left can explain:

Lauer began the interview by TELLING the audience that Bennish was taken out of context. I guess we didn’t hear the great reason Bennish had for comparing President Bush to Adolf Hitler, please do tell us Matt. But wait, Bennish did give us a reason. How was it taken out of context, I don’t know.

If you wanna see the video, visit Expose the Left at the link above. They’ve also got a video and post of a student responding to Jay Bennish appearing on The Today Show.

Bennish was pretty stuck on the point that he was only bashing the U.S. for 20 minutes out of a 50 minute class. The other 30 minutes must be dedicated to praising the U.S.? Curt at Flopping Aces doesn’t think so.

Slapstick Politics is continuing their piece ” Indoctrination Not Education In The Classroom”, now at part 3. This Bennish guy just makes me angry, like that Cindy Sheehan lady, who got arrested again the other day. Let’s hope Bennish doesn’t follow in the footsteps of his might-be role-model.
