Even the car wash is now dangerous in ‘illegal’ Southern California

An illegal alien living in Southern California with no license to drive was arrested for driving and crushing his boss to death in a vehicle accident at a car wash.

Classic Hand Car Wash manager Eduardo Rodriguez, asked the illegal alien employee Elias Izara, 25, to bring over a Mercedes SUV to be detailed. When Izara brought the vehicle around, it lurched forward, pinning Rodriguez against another SUV before running him over.

The illegal driver then crashed into a nearby clothing store and collided with a third SUV before returning to the car wash.

In addition to the arrest for driving without a license, a federal agent placed an immigration hold on Izara.

SF Mayor declares “sanctuary” for fugitives, but sheriff’s office helps ICE investigators anyway

Far left Mayor Gavin Newsom of far left San Francisco is actively opposing federal law enforcement efforts to apprehend illegal immigrants who are already violating deportation orders. Newsom told a church group "I will not allow any of my department heads or anyone associated with this city to cooperate in any way, shape or form with these raids."

The targets of Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE’s) Operation Return to Sender investigations are not just illegal immigrants, they are "immigration fugitives" named in warrants because they have violated deportation orders or returned to the U.S. after having been deported.

Many of the immigrant fugitives have criminal records. In essence, Newsom is denouncing immigration officials for enforcing the law. In general, Newsom's comments are irrelevant because ICE doesn't ask local cops to help apprehend "immigration fugitives."

But specifically, San Francisco’s sanctuary policy includes an exemption that allows city workers to assist ICE when "such assistance is specifically required by federal law." San Francisco's sheriff, able to tell right from wrong, says that, in accordance with federal law, his office notifies ICE about "hundreds" of jailed illegal immigrants every year.

Teamsters sue to stop Bush plan to bring in dangerous Mexican trucks

The Teamsters Union has filed a lawsuit challenging the Bush administration's illegal pilot program authorizing unsafe Mexican trucks to operate freely in the United States. "The Bush administration is ignoring the American people in its zeal to open our borders to unsafe Mexican trucks," said Teamsters General President Jim Hoffa. "This reckless pilot program must be stopped and the driving public protected."

"The Bush administration is trying to circumvent safety requirements by repackaging this plan as an illegal pilot program," Hoffa said. "Inspectors can't enforce truck safety in the United States, let alone south of the border." Joining the Teamsters in the suit are Public Citizen, the Sierra Club, the Environmental Law Foundation and the Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association.

Under a 2001 NAFTA order, the Bush administration is authorizing up to 100 Mexico-based trucking companies to operate beyond the narrow border zone.
Congress is considering a provision in an emergency spending bill that would block funding for the program until Mexican trucking companies meet congressionally mandated safety and security standards -- which they have been unable to do for years. It also would require that U.S. trucks have equal access to Mexican roads and mandate that the project comply with federal law governing pilot programs.

Border Patrol agents vote no confidence in agency chief

The leaders of the U.S. Border Patrol's agents have unanimously voted a no-confidence resolution against Chief David V. Aguilar. The resolution won endorsement from all 100 top leaders of the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC), which represents all 11,000 of the U.S. Border Patrol's nonsupervisory field agents.

The resolution targeted Aguilar's lack of support for field agents, several of whom have been prosecuted on civil rights grounds involving arrests of illegal aliens and drug-smuggling suspects. "Front-line Border Patrol agents who risk their lives protecting our borders have every reason to expect that the leadership of their own agency will support them," T.J. Bonner, NBPC president, said.

"Chief Aguilar is required to make decisions every day and to make some very tough decisions, some of which are not always popular," said Border Patrol spokesman Xavier Rios.

"Instead of maintaining their traditional neutral advisory role, these high-level managers have become advocates for the administration's ill-conceived political agenda that includes amnesty for millions of illegal aliens," Bonner said.

Talking back to the anti-borders movement

By Craig Nelsen

It was a sullen and aggrieved group of participants on a recent strategizing conference call between the leading figures in the anti-borders—sorry, anti-U.S. borders—movement.

Ceclia Munoz of La Raza captured the general mood best, I thought, when she suddenly interrupted Frank Sharry in mid-sentence (to everyone's relief, frankly; that guy could put a case of amphetamines to sleep.) "We have the House, dammit, we have the Senate," Cecilia's voice shot through the network of telephones. "Greenberg Traurig calls the shots at the White House, every reporter in the country (except the bigoted ones, of course) believes there are such things as labor shortages and Alan Greenspan, a revered notable whose integrity is beyond question, has appeared on everything from Howard Stern to the Weather Channel assuring the nation we're in the grip of a desperate one.

"Tom Donahue and the K Street boys are spreading $9 million dollars worth of supporting arguments around DC every single day. The churches..." she suddenly shrieked a vulgarity, which we thought was the deft admixture of some authenticating Latin passion, but later learned was only the verbal response to a big gob of jelly that found its mark on her white blouse when it shot out of her donut under the pressure of her clenched fist. There was an awkward silence, then her voice came snarling back across the wires. "I want more Latinos in this country," she said, punching each word individually through the network to convey menace and pointedly over-rolling the "r" in "country."

No one seemed to have a response, and there was another awkward silence. "I'm tired of waiting," she added weakly.

"Cecilia, honey," a soft, cooing voice came on the line, and the chatter that had erupted (God that doughy blond guy from Chicago is a blabbermouth!) instantly ceased out of deference to the voice, which all of us instantly recognized.

"No one wants to displace the anglo majority in this country more than I," said the voice. It was Tamar Jacoby, the grand dame of nation hating, the doyenne of deceit, the Wall Street Journal's national dupestress par excellence. Even I, a sworn enemy who saw her for what she is many years ago, felt a shudder run through me. But I kept silent.

The great Tamar slowly splayed her verbal talons. "No one wants more than I to erase every vestige of their magnificent achievement—the source of our endless bitterness—the American nation," she exhaled, and one could sense the telephone wires themselves coiling and uncoiling with her words. "Our long wait is nearly over, my cherished ones," she breathed, and an answering sigh of gratitude could be heard arising from the mouthpieces of two dozen phones like cobras to a flute. "I have the news we have all been yearning for," she whispered. "The sign that the promise is fulfilled, the American nation is finished."

There was an anticipatory gasp.

"Tell us, Tamar! Oh! Please tell us," begged Frank Sharry shrilly.

"You will all understand the extreme significance of this," Tamar said. "One of the opposition groups has gone away. Disappeared. Stopped functioning."

"Not Dan Stein's FAIR!" three or four voices cried in alarm.

"No," Tamar snorted. She paused, and her next words dripped out with all the weight she could give them.

"It was the vilest and silliest group of them all," she said, an inflection in her voice putting quotes around the word "group."

I knew it was time for me to jump in. "Sorry, Tamar-y!" I shouted gleefully into the handset. "We didn't go anywhere! And we haven't been idle. We will destroy you."

A snarl of pure hatred came across the line, and I hung up, knowing we have much work to do. Tamar isn't going to slither away just because we know what an implacable enemy she is. You can be sure she was at a local Kinkos yesterday running off copies of some bogus new corporate-funded study that will purport to show, surprise! you all support amnesties for illegal aliens, you don't mind importing illiterate peasants to pick strawberries as long as we're short on Americans, you don't mind making the new hordes and their extended families permanent citizens and paying for their children's education, and the whole usual assortment of lies, mischaracterizations, and muddy deceit that is Tamar's stock in trade.

Every generation produces its vipers and villians, of course, and Tamar is one of ours, unfortunately (Oh, that her ancestors had been denied entrance at Ellis Island!). The real betrayal we face now as Tamar spends her day hawking her neat little Kinkos packages of lies around Capitol Hill comes from two areas: members of the press who are so stupid or so lazy that they take her lies and regurgitate them as news to a beleagured American people (Tamar's ideological allies and kin in the press are another matter—look for a Washington Post editorial soon that will, once again, spew Tamar's lies as settled fact just in time for a senate vote); the other is members of Congress who will pretend to believe Tamar's lies so they can reap the financial benefits of voting for the US Chamber of Commerce's amnesty.

You know what, keep your eyes peeled for either of these two forms of, let's see what's the word...oh yeah, traitor. Call them up and yell at them. It's fun: "Hello? Is this Editor Cobb Webb? What's wrong with you, you bozo? You reprinted Tamar Jacoby's corporate funded pack of lies in your paper like it was legitimate information! You must be a regular imbecile. Isn't your family embarrassed? Why don't you go open a jelly donut franchise in front of Cecelia Munoz' house or something and let an actual journalist run your paper, you social blight?" Something like that.

ICE finally agrees fraud is rampant in religious worker visa program

Many of us knew September 12, 2001 that this program was needed, but the Department of Homeland Security has finally agreed that it needs to inspect religious organizations in an effort to prevent radical groups from using the special government visa program to get terrorists into the country.

DHS officials say they have uncovered rampant fraud in the religious worker visa program that allows thousands of foreigners into the USA each year.

'We found that the program had been compromised and the fraud rate was excessively high,' said Emilio Gonzalez, head of Citizen and Immigration Services at Homeland Security," USA Today reported.

"Government investigators first uncovered problems with the visa program in 1999," he said, "including applicants who were unqualified for the jobs they were hired for. Last year, a fraud-detection unit in the Homeland Security Department found that 33% of the visas investigators examined were granted based on fraudulent information."

Imagine, a day without illegals!

While illegals and their advocate ask “What would a day without immigrants be like,” we'd like to note that legal immigrants are very welcome in the United States. We don’t want to imagine a day without them.

But what would a day without illegals be like?
• First, the Americans killed by illegal aliens today, including those killed by drunken drivers, would still be alive;
• Homeland security would be dramatically improved by removing people of unknown character and criminal history from our midst;
• Inmate population at state, local, and federal penal institutions would be about 30 percent less;
• Education would be dramatically improved because overcrowding would be eased;
• Teachers would be able to devote more time to American students, rather than attending to the needs of non-English speaking aliens;
• America's health care system would not be burdened by millions of uninsured illegal aliens;
• Those who belong in America would be able to count on receiving emergency care in a reasonable period of time, rather than being forced to wait for hours upon hours in emergency rooms overrun by illegal aliens;
• With fewer cars on the road, traffic congestion would be dramatically eased, resulting in less carbon monoxide released to the environment. And less global warming;
• Most of the crimes being investigated in Los Angeles would not have been committed;
• ID theft would be far less of a threat to Americans;
• Welfare and food stamp fraud would be reduced significantly.

Virginia murders should be a wakeup call regarding H1B viasa

Cho Seung-Hui, the gunman who shot and killed 33 people at Virginia Tech last week, is a chain migrant. He is a South Korean national who came to the U.S. atthe age of 8.

His parents were probably recipients of visas such as the H1B or L1. These visas are a popular Trojan horse for the third-world invasion of the West, and are supported by big business to drive down American wages. George W. Bush and Bill Gates have long supported the broadening of these visas to “globalize” (i.e. drive down) American salaries, especially in high tech.

Those who want to see immigration reduced have been predicting for decades that something like the Virginia tragedy was bound to happen. Bush had been warned numerous times, before and after 9/11, about the dangers of these visas, and chose to ignore all the warnings.

Recently, he has sought to once again expand student, H-1B and L1 visas from the third world. The Cho killing spree should serve as a wakeup call to abolish or severely limit visas from all non-Western countries.

Montana asks Congress to withdraw from the SPP

Montana has become the second state to pass a resolution opposing the North American Union. Idaho had passed an anti-NAU resolution in March. The Montana House had adopted H.J.R. 25 by a vote of 94 to 5, the Senate's 32 to 18 vote sealed passage of the resolution urging "the President and the Congress of the United States to withdraw the United States from any further participation in the Security and Prosperity Partnership, any efforts to implement a trinational political governmental entity among the United States, Canada, and Mexico, or any other efforts used to accomplish any form of a North American Union."

The resolution also urged "the President and the Congress of the United States not to engage in the construction of a North American Free Trade Agreement Superhighway System."

arlier this year the Utah House had also passed an anti-NAU resolution.

Democrat Congressmen promise amnesty to millions of illegals

Legislation legalizing millions of immigrants will pass Congress this year, Rep. Rahm Emanuel (D-Ill.) promised more than 1,500 illegals at a rally in Chicago. 'The Democratic leadership is committed to this,' Emanuel said. 'This will be the year we get this done.'

Emmanuel referred to a House bill filed by Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) that would allow illegals to stay in the country. Gutierrez also attended the rally. Emanuel is chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, and said he planned to court votes from Republicans. 'My goal is 218 votes, and not just Democrats,' Emanuel said. 'We've got to make this a big tent.'

Gutierrez is traveling across the country trying to drum up support for the bill, which would allow immigrants who arrived before June of last year to stay in the country if they pay a $500 fine, pass background checks and prove employment. After six years, immigrants could become permanent residents if they pay $1,500, learn English and have not committed a crime. The bill also would allow as many as 400,000 guest workers to enter the job market annually.

However,in the Gutierrez bill, those who receive amnesty will be able to bring in their entire families. In exchange for the fee to become permanent residents, they would receive a treasure trove of government benefits. Gutierrez has eliminated virtually all the checks and balances designed to keep criminals, drug smugglers, child predators, rapists and terrorists out of our country, and under his bill, the most questionable forms of identification would be accepted.

Conservatives continue to push for stricter border enforcement, while liberals insist on a pathway to citizenship for illegal aliens.

IRS lets illegals pay taxes while keeping clear of ICE

Tuesday is Tax Day, and millions of illegal immigrants will collaborate with one federal agency - the Internal Revenue Service - while trying to avoid another - Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). ICE seems to be the only government agency which sometimes cares whether they are in the U.S. legally or not.

The illegals want to generate a record of on-time tax payments, which might eventually help their citizenship applications, or at least avoid their deportation by ICE. Most Americans say it’s absurd for the government to work with people it should be tracking down and deporting. The process legitimizes the presence of illegals, and sends a mixed message about this nation’s interest in enforcing its own rules.

The IRS created the nine-digit Individual Tax Identification Number in 1996 for foreigners who don’t have Social Security numbers but need to file taxes in the U.S. It is increasingly used by undocumented workers to file taxes, apply for credit, get bank accounts or even get a mortgage to buy a home.

The IRS issued 1.5 million ITINs in 2006 — a 30 percent increase from the previous year. It’s widely believed that most people using ITINS are in the United States illegally. Five states — West Virginia, Kentucky, New Mexico, Utah, and Illinois — also allow ITINs to be used as identification for a drivers’ license.

One month in Arizona

The number of illegal aliens apprehended by the Border Patrol, Tucson Sector from March 1-31. That averages 1,650 illegals arrested every day of the month.


The Border Patrol will tell you that for every illegal apprehended, at least three get by. This means at least 157,992 got by in March to take work from, and depress the wages of U.S. citizens.

99.366 lbs.

That's 4.5 tons of marijuana that were confiscated in the Tucson Sector between March 1 through March 31 by the Border Patrol.

626 vehicles
These vehicles were carrying illegal aliens or drugs, etc. and were confiscated by the Border Patrol during the month of March. This does not count the number of stolen vehicles that were recovered and returned to their owners through other enforcement agencies.

These figures come from the Border Patrol, and are for the month of March in the Tucson sector of Arizona

Former LA gang leader, 14 others arrested in Georgia

A former leader of a Los Angeles street gang and 14 other illegal immigrants, 10 with criminal records, were arrested this week by immigration authorities in the Atlanta area. The 15 arrests came during a three-day operation that ended Thursday. It was conducted by the Atlanta's Fugitive Operations Team, which is part of the Department of Homeland Security's nationwide push to round up immigrants who have been ordered deported for criminal convictions or visa violations.

Ten of those arrested had criminal histories including child molestation, statutory rape, and driving under the influence. The others, from Mexico, Venezuela, El Salvador and Nicaragua, were also in the country illegally and face deportation.

Among them is Jhonathan Aguilar-Orozco, of Mexico, the former leader of the California street gang "White Fence." He has previously been deported twice and has felony convictions for burglary, battery, aggravated assault and drug charges. Authorities also arrested Hector Solis-Guzman, of El Salvador, who was convicted in 2005 in Georgia on charges of false imprisonment, family violence battery and cruelty to children

Bronx hospital patients exposed to TB in nurse

Early this year, a foreign-born nurse infected with tuberculosis worked in the maternity ward and nursery at St. Barnabas Hospital in the Bronx, New York. As a result, 700 workers and patients, including 238 infants, were exposed to the dangerous disease.

Ultimately, seven people tested positive latent tuberculosis, developed after they were exposed to the infectious nurse.

The incidence of TB in New York City declined over the past decade, but the percentage of cases in health care workers increased slightly over the same period—from 3 percent in the early 1990s to 4 percent in 2002, a small but significant change.

A nationwide nursing shortage has caused a large influx of foreign-born workers, many from regions of the world where TB persists in epidemic proportions. Not all health care workers get tested for tuberculosis when they are first hired, and those who are tested and are shown to carry the latent form of the disease may not do anything about it. About half never get treatment.

Because they work with those most susceptible to infection—newborns and people with compromised immune systems, health care workers with latent TB present a unique threat and should be treated.

House Immigration Reform Caucus blasts Bush proposal

President Bush’s immigration proposal ‘offends the American people's sense of fairness,' says Rep. Lamar Smith, (R-TX). 'It treats illegal aliens better than legal immigrants who have played by the rules and come in the right way.'

Members of the House Immigration Reform Caucus blasted Bush's plan after the President urged lawmakers to move forward with his five-point immigration-reform plan, including a guest-worker program that would give the estimated 12 million to 20 million illegal aliens in the United States legal status and a path to citizenship.

Caucus member Rep. Phil Gingrey, (R-GA), said those who support legal immigration and the rule of law must stand united against any plan for amnesty. 'Have we learned nothing from the past?' he said. 'In 1986, we passed an amnesty plan that did nothing to fix our broken immigration system. In 2007, we can't take that same path to failure. It would be foolish to craft legislation that clearly goes against the will of so many citizens.'

Illegals in Los Angeles want even more than Bush is offering

Even President Bush’s proposals to give amnesty to 20 million illegals is not enough to satisfy the illegal aliens in Southern California. On Easter weekend, thousands of them marched through the streets saying that Bush’s amnesty would cost too much.

They want a low cost or free amnesty after breaking our laws. They also don’t want to have to leave the U.S. before returning to get amnesty.

No one serioiusly confronted them.

Hispanics who come to this country legally have no reason to complain, for they’re already on a “path to citizenship” by following the law and having their green cards.

Illegal aliens drive down the wages of legal immigrants as well as citizens. They also cost our communities tax dollars for the education and emergency health care the courts say we must provide, and for many other services they should not be receiving.

Illegals on our highways – just a few of the week’s victims

He directed “A Christmas Story,” “Porkies” and many other films. Director Bob Clark lost his life this week in an auto crash on the Pacific Coast Highway in Southern California caused by an illegal alien drunk driver. Clark and his son were killed four days before Easter.

The 24-year-old illegal, a Mexican, who had a blood-alcohol level of 0.24 percent, three times the 0.08 legal limit, steered his sport utility vehicle into the wrong lane of the highway, striking Clark's sedan head-on. The filmmaker and his son, Ariel Hanrath-Clark, 22, died at the scene.

In Virginia Beach, Virginia, a drunk illegal immigrant slammed his car into the back of another car, killing two Virginia Beach teenagers. The driver, a 22-year-old, admitted that he was in this country illegally from Mexico. The driver had prior driving infractions involving alcohol in the city of Chesapeake, Virginia, and had not been deported. He was found guilty and only paid a fine.

And on Saturday in California, a bicyclist was left in critical condition after being struck in a hit-and-run crash caused by an illegal alien. The 58-year-old bicyclist was riding in a bicycle lane shortly after 3 p.m. when a vehicle heading the same direction veered into the lane and struck him. The illegal got out of the vehicle with his 4-year-old son and ran away, but was found and arrested on suspicion of felony hit-and-run. He had no driver's license or other identification and spoke no English.

Rules for the treatment of illegals - Mexico's, that is

The following rules contol the handling of illegal aliens south of the border. You might be interested to know that in Mexico:

There are no special bilingual programs, no special ballots for elections, and all government business is conducted in Spanish.

Foreigners have no right to vote, no matter how long they are here.

Foreigners are never able to hold political office.

Foreigners are not be a burden to the taxpayers. They are not eligible for welfare, food stamps, health care, nor any other government assistance program.

Foreigners may invest in Mexico, but it must be an amount equal to 40,000 times the daily minimum wage.

If foreigners come to Mexico and want to buy land, that is OK, but their options are restricted. Foreigners would not be permitted to own waterfront property. That property is reserved for citizens naturally born in Mexico.

Foreigners may not protest in Mexico — no demonstrations, no waving of a foreign flag, no political organizing, no bad mouthing the president or his policies. And if they do violate this rule, they will be sent home!

If you come to Mexico illegally, you will be hunted down and sent straight to jail!

Sounds like they'd be good rules for the United States to follow!

Expect low-skilled aliens to cost taxpayers $1 million each

Increasing the number of low-skilled workers entering the United States would impose a high cost of taxpayers, says a Heritage Foundation study, which calculates that for every $1 that unskilled workers pay in taxes, there are about $3 in government benefits that they receive.

Rep. Lamar Smith of Texas, the ranking Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, which handles immigration bills, said the results of the study should serve as a warning to President Bush and lawmakers who are proposing to give illegal aliens a so-called path to citizenship, better known as amnesty.

"We need to make sure any legislation does not further strain government services and taxpayers' wallets," said Smith, who announced the results of the study for the Washington think tank.

Bush has called for legalizing the estimated 12 million to 20 million illegal aliens in the United States, and for allowing more foreign workers in the future. Many Congressional Republicans disagree, and want Bush to focus on better immigration enforcement.

Reid’s staff complains new Bush proposal not liberal enough

Six Republican and four Democratic Senators. met Thursday with White House officials in the second bipartisan meeting involving the Bush administration in two days. The gatherings are expected to become a regular occurrence when the Senate returns from recess next week. Republican Senator Mel Martinez (R-FL) said “We’ve made a lot of progress. What we have to do now is take our ideas and draft a bill. That will happen during the break.”

Not everyone, however, was pleased “Some of these proposals being floated by the White House are very, very problematic,” said a spokesman for Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) “Sen. Reid is anxious to get a comprehensive bill through the Senate as quickly as possible.

“The only way to get anything done is if this administration stops paying lip service to the right wing and starts negotiating in good faith with Democrats on the Hill,” he added.

Democrats, however, already are balking at several provisions, including requirements that illegals return home and pay a $10,000 fine to ultimately achieve citizenship, and that there be no special allowances for immigrant families,.

Bush, GOP senators have new proposal, but it’s still amnesty

The Bush administration and some Senate Republicans have a new immigration proposal circulating the press as a PowerPoint presentation. It favors a circuitous path that would be open to almost all illegal aliens, but includes higher financial penalties for illegal aliens who want to remain in the United States.

The proposal would bar many illegal aliens from collecting Social Security benefits based on work performed while illegal, and would prohibit future guest workers from bringing their families. It would also, for the first time, accept specific 'triggers,' including stepped-up enforcement, that must be met before legalization and guest-worker plans go into effect.

One trigger calls for 370 miles of fencing, 200 miles of vehicle barriers and 300 miles of electronic monitoring on the border. But in 2006, 850 miles of border fence were authorized. Referring to the 2006 legislation, Rep. Duncan Hunter, (R-CA) said, “I drafted that bill. It says 'shall.' That's the same language we put in the border fence in San Diego, Doggone it, this is the law. Follow the law.”

A spokesman for Rep. Brian P. Bilbray, (R-CA), Chairman of the Congressional Immigration Reform Caucus, said of the new proposal 'It's still amnesty. With all of the window-dressing provisions that are here, at the end of the day the end result is the same: You are giving specialized status and a mechanism for [illegal aliens] to stay here indefinitely, which is an amnesty.'

Mexican, U.S. trucking companies want out of pilot trucking program

CANACAR, a trade association representing Mexican motor carriers, has asked the Mexican Senate to cancel the cross-border pilot program with the United States. The group claims that contrary to the 1995 NAFTA agreement, Mexican trucking companies were not allowed to invest in U.S.-based trucking businesses or allowed to provide services within the U.S.

"The majority of people in the United States don't want Mexican trucks to go there, and we told our president that we don't want to go, either," said CANACAR president Manuel Gomez in 2001. "Nor are we interested in having U.S. trucks come to Mexico."

In the U.S., an effort to delay the pilot program continues in the U.S. Senate with the debate of the supplemental appropriations bill. An amendment to the bill would restrict spending any money on allowing Mexican motor carriers to operate beyond the border zone until certain conditions are met. The amendment was accepted on a voice vote – with no opposition.

In addition, U.S truckers have set a date for a "truck out" boycott and plan to circle all state legislature capital-buildings bumper-to-bumper, three or more trucks wide on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, April 23, 24 and 25.

National Minuteman 30-Day Border Watch began Sunday

The national Minuteman Operation: “Stand Your Ground” started April 1. “Stand Your Ground” is a national muster to combat a large increase in ‘amnesty-seeking’ border crossings, together with drug-trafficking and contraband.

The operation, organized by the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps, led by Chris Simcox, runs April 1 to 30 on the U.S.-Mexico border in Arizona, New Mexico and Texas, as well as on the U.S.-Canada border in New Hampshire, New York and Washington State. It features 24/7 operations for the 30 days to secure the border.

A message for potential border-watchers said: “We must stand vigilant watch, to both protect our sovereign territory from foreign invasion and to lobby Washington D.C. from the border against increasing the illegal alien mobs flooding our nation. With the politicians’ irresponsible promises of amnesty, illegal crossings at the border in some sectors are at an all-time high, flooded with those in hopes of grabbing the U.S. citizenship “give-away.
