Ok, so we got the UAE business deal regarding the ports and everyone is agog with turning it into a National Security fiasco. So I have to wonder what all those who are shouting about National Security at are ports are doing, willing to do, thinking of doing about our other borders. Namely the ones to the north and south, not just east and west. What has Pelosi and Boxer done to secure their Californian border with Mexico? How about Clinton and Rangle for New York ports controlled by China? If memory serves, it was her husband who allowed that one.
And then I see footage from Arizona of illegal immigrants crossing onto private property and the aftermath. Slaughtered animals and livestock, vandalism, litter, attacks on home and property owners. Yet if a home or property owner tries to protect their property, family and livestock, they stand the very real possibility of being sued by Mexico, the ACLU, or Hispanic lobby groups and losing their property, livestock, and livelihood. It happened in Texas after a rancher found illegals on his property, gave them food and water, then got sued by them for abuses they inflicted on themselves. In Arizona, a rancher came across illegals on his property and detained them at gunpoint until Border Patrol could collect them. Guess it doesn't matter that they were on his land with posted 'No Trespassing' signs, that they outnumbered him 10-1, or that firearms are a necessity in rural Arizona, quite apart from armed drug/people smugglers. Another Arizonan, confined to a wheelchair, had rocks thrown at him by illegals after they harassed his family and vandalized his property. He fired a shot in the air to scare them off, got sued by the Mexican government and won. But his legal fees cost him his property. And then there's the Pro Immigration lobbies decrying the violence done to 'undocumented workers' while conveniently ignoring the violence done by 'undocumented workers' to Americans, wanting tougher laws on Americans but no laws for non-Americans while giving them all American rights.
It's almost amusing. If you support legal immigration, national sovereignty, property rights, the Bill of Rights, and family protection, you're Anti Immigration. However, if you support completely open borders, full American rights, freedoms, and liberties for 'undocumented' workers, think that Americans should never defend their families, property or livelihood, and believe that once one sets foot on American soil they are an American citizen, then you get called Pro Immigration. I'm all for legal immigration, and think the immigration process should be streamlined. I also think the national language of the United States should be mandatory and that the Army and Air National Guard should be deployed along our borders. They aren't under the same strictures as Active or Reserve components under the Posse Comitatus Act, and can be borrowed by Governors from other states.
And yes, I will continue to refer to those who enter this country illegally as illegal immigrants, not 'undocumented workers'. I do wonder if those 'Pro Immigration' folks who utilize 'undocumented workers' also place drug smugglers, people smugglers, and arms traffickers under the same umbrella. Maybe they refer to the Mexicans who keep entering Texas in Mexican military vehicles, wearing Mexican military uniforms, weilding Mexican military weapons, guarding Mexicans smuggling drugs into America as Temporary Americans. Honorary Americans? Undocumented Workers? They claimed to believe they were still in Mexico chasing illegal militants from America. 50 miles into Texas having crossed the Rio Grande River? Maybe their understanding of Mexico's geography and cartography stemmed from pre-1836 texts.
So lets review. Many folks in government are against the port deal with that UAE company claiming National Security, but turn a blind eye and open hand to those crossing our national border illegally. If you protect and/or defend yourself, your family, your property, your business, or your livelihood, you will lose everything. If you want enforcement of the immigration laws already on the books, you're Anti Immigration.
It does make me wonder though. If Mexico is as great as President Fox makes it out to be, then why in blue blazes are tens of thousands leaving his country monthly? If it's quite OK for Mexico to have their military forces patrolling their borders, why can't ours?
