Skip to comments.Illegal Immigration Debate is About National Security Not Racial Profiling!

On the same day that Mexican President Felipe Calderon was schmoozing President Obama and Democratic members of Congress in Washington, another news story reported that gun battles between security forces and armed attackers have killed nine people in two states along the U.S. border.
Since 1996, approximately 23,000 people have died in drug-related violence in Mexico and along the U.S. border. In contrast, earlier this week news outlets reported that the number of U.S. military personnel who had died in nearly a decade of war in Iraq and Afghanistan, since March 2001, reached nearly 5,400. There was a time when Democrats criticized President Bush for the number of American deaths in Iraq. Now, with more people having died along the Mexican border, all Democrats can do is give a standing ovation to the Mexican president.
We have a problem that is clearly out of control. President Obama and President Calderon seem less concerned about protecting lives and more focused on racial profiling.
Obama and the Democrats want the American public to believe this is about fairness. Get real Mr. President, illegal immigration must be dealt with immediately because it is a national security issue. You took an oath to protect America from all enemies foreign and domestic. Its time to step up or step aside.
We need real leadership and we need it now. We need to elect people that have experience, guts and determination to solve real problems like illegal immigration. We should be less concerned about boycotts and racial profiling and more concerned about whether the person who has been stopped has drugs or an AK-47 in the backseat of the car.
Securing our borders will save lives and protect our way of life. As a United States Marshal, and as someone who has held a Top Secret clearance, I am very aware of the Mexican drug wars spilling over into our cities. The failed economic and national security policies of Mexico have driven people across the border. The Obama plan is to invite the Mexican president into our nations Capitol and scold us about profiling. At the same time, the Mexican government cant seem to profile a drug dealer with an AK-47.
Our nation is facing a critical time. Obama has already weakened our nation economically, and now with our national security at stake, he is playing politics.
On the House Floor yesterday, Rep. Tom McClintock correctly observed that President Calderon does not understand the nature of America or the purpose of our immigration law. McClintock said the purpose of America's law is not to keep people out. It is to assure that as people come to the United States, they do so with the intention of becoming Americans and of raising their children as Americans.
I believe that illegal immigration is about national security. Thats why Tom McClintock has endorsed my candidacy. As a member of Congress, you can bet that I will not tolerate a U.S. President treating this as a political wedge issue.
Its time for common sense in Washington.
it certainly is about national security and its time we quit all this immigration talk..it was never about immigration.
We’ve got morons like Michelle O and Janet N telling us goofy **** like, “obesity is a national security problem” and then they give us a bunch of touchy feely BS about the invaders from the south. Man are these morons screwed up in the head.
They just keep coming in at the invitation of Hussein.
How about we show our respect for President Calderon, and use his immigration laws as our own?
Is there any way that we the people could fill out the proper papers and have them all committed?
Please call McClintock’s office to say thank you.
