Arizona Sheriff Says Cops Are Being Killed by Illegal Aliens; Joins Call for U.S. Troops at Border
cnsnews.com ^ | 04202010 | Penny Starr, Senior Staff Writer

Posted on 04/20/2010 9:41:44 AM PDT by VU4G10

Law enforcement officials from the Arizona counties hardest hit by illegal immigration say they want U.S. troops to help secure the border, to prevent the deaths of more officers at the hands of criminals who enter the country illegally.

“We’ve had numerous officers that have been killed by illegal immigrants in Arizona,” Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu said Monday at a Capitol Hill news conference. “And that shouldn’t happen one time.”

Babeu said the violence in Arizona has reached “epidemic proportions” and must be stopped. “In just one patrol area, we’ve had 64 pursuits -- failure to yield for an officer -- in one month,” Babeu said. “That’s out of control.”

By Rick Klein, Globe Staff | February 28, 2007

WASHINGTON — Senators Edward M. Kennedy and John McCain are set to introduce a revised version of their sweeping plan to overhaul the nation’s immigration laws, in a bill that’s likely to restart a tense debate in Congress.

The measure, which is being drafted in consultation with the White House, will largely mirror the immigration bill that stalled last year, according to lawmakers and aides involved in the process. That measure was blocked primarily because House Republican leaders were adamantly opposed to provisions that would have allowed undocumented immigrants to become US citizens.

Though negotiations are still ongoing, this year’s bill will most likely leave in place the 700-mile border fence, the creation of which was signed into law last year. It would also double the size of the US Border Patrol and add new means to crack down on employers who hire undocumented immigrants, a further attempt to assuage concerns about the nation’s porous borders.

But the bill is likely to enrage advocates of a get-tough approach to immigration by allowing most of the estimated 12 million undocumented immigrants already in this country to earn legalized status. Early drafts of the bill would allow them to become citizens after about 12 years if they meet requirements such as learning English, passing a criminal background check, and paying back taxes and a $2,000 fine.

“Those who have lived here, who have basically played by the rules, worked hard . . . they, I believe, ought to be able to adjust their status,” said Kennedy, a Massachusetts Democrat. “This is a complex issue and demands a comprehensive approach. I don’t expect it to be easy sledding.”

The bill, set to be introduced in the House and Senate as soon as next week, will also include a “guest worker” program for immigrants to work in the United States under temporary visas — an oft-stated goal of President Bush.

The Bush administration is dispatching Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff and Commerce Secretary Carlos M. Gutierrez to testify at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on the issue today — appearances that will be closely watched for signals from the White House. Chertoff and Gutierrez have also been meeting privately with key lawmakers to discuss the legislation.

A wide range of Democratic and Republican lawmakers have said the White House must assert itself in crafting the bill for it to have any chance of passing Congress this year. McCain, an Arizona Republican, said the Bush administration’s involvement is a big boost.

“There’s active participation,” McCain said. “There’s a window of opportunity. I don’t know when it becomes impossible, but I know that this is the greatest opportunity — right now, in the next several months.”

Not about to second-guess Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu.

However, would hope that Arizona consider other options such as deputizing and properly arming and equiping Arizona ex-vets, etc.

It is troubling to know that O will see how easy it is for him to order U.S. troops anywhere in the U.S.

John McCain is just follow in the footsteps of an old and senile Barry Goldwater. Look at this from WikiPedia:
Later life

Signing autographs at the Fiesta Bowl parade in 1983.By the 1980s, with Ronald Reagan as president and the growing involvement of the religious right in conservative politics, Goldwater’s libertarian views on personal issues were revealed; he believed that they were an integral part of true conservatism. Goldwater viewed abortion as a matter of personal choice, not intended for government intervention.[33]

As a passionate defender of personal liberty, he saw the religious right’s views as an encroachment on personal privacy and individual liberties.[34] In his 1980 Senate reelection campaign, Goldwater won support from religious conservatives but in his final term voted consistently to uphold legalized abortion and, in 1981, gave a speech on how he was angry about the bullying of American politicians by religious organizations, and would “fight them every step of the way”.[35] Goldwater also disagreed with the Reagan administration on certain aspects of foreign policy (e.g. he opposed the decision to mine Nicaraguan harbors). Notwithstanding his prior differences with Dwight D. Eisenhower, Goldwater in a 1986 interview rated him the best of the seven Presidents with whom he had worked.

On May 12, 1986, Goldwater was presented with the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Ronald Reagan.

After his retirement in 1987, Goldwater described the conservative Arizona Governor Evan Mecham as “hardheaded” and called on him to resign, and two years later stated that the Republican party had been taken over by a “bunch of kooks”.[36]

In a 1994 interview with the Washington Post the retired senator said,

When you say “radical right” today, I think of these moneymaking ventures by fellows like Pat Robertson and others who are trying to take the Republican party and make a religious organization out of it. If that ever happens, kiss politics goodbye.[37]
In response to Moral Majority founder Jerry Falwell’s opposition to the nomination of Sandra Day O’Connor to the Supreme Court, of which Falwell had said, “Every good Christian should be concerned”, Goldwater retorted: “Every good Christian ought to kick Falwell right in the ass.”[38] (According to John Dean, Goldwater actually suggested that good Christians ought to kick Falwell in the “nuts”, but the news media “changed the anatomical reference.” [39]) Goldwater also had harsh words for his one-time political protege, President Reagan, particularly after the Iran-Contra Affair became public in 1986. Journalist Robert MacNeil, a friend of Goldwater’s from the 1964 Presidential campaign, recalled interviewing him in his office shortly afterward. “He was sitting in his office with his hands on his cane ... and he said to me, ‘Well, aren’t you going to ask me about the Iran arms sales?’ It had just been announced that the Reagan administration had sold arms to Iran. And I said, ‘Well, if I asked you, what would you say?’ He said, ‘I’d say it’s the god-damned stupidest foreign policy blunder this country’s ever made!’”,[40] though aside from the Iran-Contra scandal, Goldwater thought nonetheless that Reagan was a good president.[41] In 1988 during that year’s presidential campaign, he pointedly told vice-presidential nominee Dan Quayle at a campaign event in Arizona “I want you to go back and tell George Bush to start talking about the issues.”[42]

Some of Goldwater’s statements in the 1990s aggravated many social conservatives. He endorsed Democrat Karan English in an Arizona congressional race, urged Republicans to lay off Bill Clinton over the Whitewater scandal, and criticized the military’s ban on homosexuals:[37] “Everyone knows that gays have served honorably in the military since at least the time of Julius Caesar.”[43] He also said, “You don’t have to be straight to be in the military; you just have to be able to shoot straight.”[44] A few years before his death he went so far as to address the right wing, “Do not associate my name with anything you do. You are extremists, and you’ve hurt the Republican party much more than the Democrats have.”[45]

In 1996, he told Bob Dole, whose own presidential campaign received lukewarm support from conservative Republicans: “We’re the new liberals of the Republican party. Can you imagine that?”[46] In that same year, with Senator Dennis DeConcini, Goldwater endorsed an Arizona initiative to legalize medical marijuana against the countervailing opinion of social conservatives.[47]

How quickly some forget. Every time I think of how WE ALLOWED McShamnesty to be pushed to the forefront by the GOP as a Presidential candidate, it absolutely sickens me. And here he is again....WITH the support of people like Palin, he actually may win his seat again. It just makes my blood pressure boil. Conservatives have NOT learned.

Eloy is in Pinal county, which is where my wife's brother-in-law was murdered by baseball bat wielding illegal aliens. I would not suggest the violence is concentrated along the border at all. I wonder what the percentage of violent crime in Phoenix is caused by illegal alien perps?

You know better than I...but I’d bet it approaches 30%, just as a guess.

It is probably much more when you add the non-violent crimes of identity theft, DUI, and burglary/larceny.

“... 55,322 criminal aliens were arrested a total of at least 459,614 times, averaging over eight arrests per alien. The Department of Justice expressed its surprise at the ‘extremely high’ rate of re-arrests for criminal aliens when it found that that 73 criminal aliens in a study group were arrested a total of 429 times.”

In the words of one liberal commentator--I think it was on National Public Radio--Goldwater's endorsement of English (over conservative Republican challenger Doug Wead) showed that he had "grown" and "matured."

Though negotiations are still ongoing, this year’s bill will most likely leave in place the 700-mile border fence

"Leave in place????" Never finished!!!!

Leftist legislation always contains a bogus threat:

If you don't pass amnesty we won't "secure the border."

If you don't pass crap and trade the EPA will do something worse.

If you don't pass "financial reform" we will keep bailing out the megabanks

And if you don't vote to pass bills written entirely by Dems you are "obstructionists."
