These gangs are no longer "on the border", they're all over this country with local law enforcement outnumbered and out gunned.

GREEN CARDS AND GANGS

Siskiyou County, California, Feb. 26, 2005

They come from Mexico for jobs by way of a document called a “green card”. Such immigrants are termed “legal permanent Residents” with many of the same rights as US citizens outlined here,

o To live permanently in the United States provided you do not commit any actions that would make you removable (deportable) under the immigration law (section 237, Immigration and Nationality Act). o To be employed in the United States at any legal work of your qualification and choosing. o To be protected by all of the laws of the United States, your state of residence and local jurisdictions. o To vote in local elections where United States Citizenship is not required. Click here for more details on voting. Exceptions o Some jobs will be limited to United States Citizens because of security concerns. http://uscis.gov/graphics/howdoi/PermRes.htm

Today Siskiyou county Sheriff Rick Riggins and Captain Mike Murphy presented a slide show and details of Marijuana growing operations on federal forest land as a warning to residents of the dangers of happening across one of these farms. These operations are spearheaded by various Latino gangs, one being the powerful, well armed MS-13 gang that began in El Salvador. Sheriff Riggins stated that his biggest problem in combating this scourge is his office being labeled, "racist".

On Sept. 11, 2004, one such farm was busted by the Sheriff with help from BLM and the forest service netting thousands of plants and several Mexicans who either held green cards or were awol from the Mexican military and in this country illegally. These raids are no simple task as the terrain is nearly insurmountable and usually remote, however one growing operation was within 2 miles of the city limits of Etna, California. Resources are limited in such small counties, with little help from federal officials, even though this organized criminal enterprise has been going on in these mountains for many years. Homeland Security says such operations are not their concern.

The gangs are back this year getting ready for next falls harvest to be distributed across the US. Their supplies and equipment will be brought in from the cities and deliveries to replenish them are undertaken at night every few weeks. The farms are guarded at all times.

Slides of the “camps” complete with a “hooch” for living were shown. Huge pits are dug, one big enough for an SUV, for garbage and waste. The trees are cut or skinned to pile “moats” around the farms to camouflage them. Black irrigation pipe is buried for miles to get water to the plants. The environment on our national lands is being degraded by these operations, destroying habitat and watershed purity.

We saw the AK-47’s, axes, shovels, a . 22 rifle with the name “ Los Pleves” scratched on the stock. We saw notebooks of the growers with markings of MS-13 and a drawing of a Lexus that one “immigrant” intended to buy with the drug profits.

Most of the farms appear to be run by the same organizations mostly through the Mexican Mafia year after year. Though a few are busted, a substantive dent has not been made and they know they can operate here more safely and profitably than in Mexico and there is no worry of getting the product back into the states.

Across the border in Oregon, the story is the same. The Sheriffs of Jackson, Josephine and Klamath County work together to find the farms and arrest the perpetrators. All have been Mexican so far, most with green cards. These same gangs also brew Methanphetimine to finance their organized crime activities during off season.

We do not need yet another “guest worker” program to supply dangerous gangs with recruits. We need to find out why these people were ever allowed in this country in the first place and how to keep more of them out.

While I agree with a lot that Michelle is saying here, she misses a point about the initiative the First Lady is undertaking. She is going to concentrate on boys in the schools and how they are left behind in terms of their reading ability, etc. That does NOT take law enforcement.

With all due respect to the First Lady, this is a job best left to law enforcement professionals willing to get tough, get dirty, and crack heads. From the suburbs to our national forests, savage criminal alien gangs are infiltrating America and luring young recruits.

Count on Michele to tell it like it is.

A criminal gang in effect declares war on the rest of us.

You respond to a declaration of war with war.

The beauty part is the "Supremes" decision about the death penalty for teenagers.

Speaking of gangs, can anybody explain this experience? I've had this happen to me twice in the past 6 months, once in NY City and once in Philly.

While walking in parts of town I probably shouldn't have been walking I've had Latino youth start counting in Spanish upon seeing me approach. They get uncomfortably close to me but don't touch me.

I never changed my stride but walked past them. I wonder if this means anything since the two incidents were so similar?

"Operations are spearheaded by various Latino gangs, one being the powerful, well armed MS-13 gang that began in El Salvador. Sheriff Riggins stated that his biggest problem in combating this scourge is his office being labeled, 'racist'."

I believe Sheriff Riggins.

The Politically Correct Brownshirters -- the ACLU and their proxies -- the Courts and both U.S. Houses by virtue of "Hate Crime" legislation -- has crippled U.S. Law Enforcement.

And I wonder how the DoJ would react to KKK, Skinheads, and White Supremicists overrunning cities and towns across the country spreading drugs, murder, and mayhem throughout America?

Again -- Homeland Security, the DoJ, AND the Bush Administration is negligent in protecting it's OWN citizenry.

The irony is not lost when one looks at the committment, conviction, resources, and energy spent for Afghan and Iraqi "security."

Not much usually gets fixed without a ground swell of public opinion for or against one thing or another. The politicians care about their cushy jobs more than anything else. The squeaky wheel gets the grease. As the nation continues to voice its opinion against illegal immigration and answers to our porous borders, the good time Charlie's will come rolling in singing to the beat of the band. The president recognizes the problem with the border, his ability to change his stance to conform to an evolving tide of public opinion depends on us. We need to support him without fear of offering alternatives to any initial solutions. I love this president, he's not perfect, but he is honest, he has done one hell of a job so far, and has our best intentions at heart. Lets help him, and not feed the appeasers on the left their lunch by how we go about helping him. We can fix the border, together.

An AC-130 gunship could clear out those camps quickly.

People thought the Mafia was a problem – until the Colombians showed up.
People thought the Bloods and Crips were a problem until…
Our home grown bad guys are comparatively benign compared to what we are getting from the 3rd World.
