I think suddenly the feds are going to become “effective”.
Arizona has a serious problem and the new law will help to combat it.
This is the kind of news that sends a tingle down my leg :)
I hope they find a way to get this guy to talk.
It was a female employee if I remember correctly. She should be tried for treason
The Cartels are beginning to control swaths of territory on the Mexican side of the border, and have infiltrated govt. on the US side as well as on the Mexican side. The border is not controlled by any side. It is being openly contested now, and the cartels are using larger forces in predations (twelve truckloads of armed attackers the other day in Mexico). Thank God for AZ, hope Texas follows. That should increase pressure on N Mex to handle increased pressure from the South that will be channelled there soon. The biggie is Texas. It is interesting that the Border Patrol has been preventing from setting foot in lands along the border “controlled, but not patrolled” by the Dept of the Interior and Agriculture...do the cartels operate there with impunity?
Recently, Obama directed a significant part of the NASA budget for climate data collection. Could the predator missions over the US/Mexican border be directed to gather some more warm temperature data instead of border, immigration control duties? No one really knows what the data assignment is or what will be done with the info. As for “drone bees”, sounds like RandD to me.
You should always remember that what the press calls "cartels" are in fact mafias. Mexican mafias.
And mafias are all about extended families.
In all the government offices in Arizona, and other border states, you will find armies of Mexican females doing secretarial work, counter work, clerical etc.
They are all somebody's cousin. Or Tia. Or sister. Or even wife.
And those "somebody's" many times live on the other side, and view their relative as a resource. For crime.
And who would that be? The Mexican mafia's.
It happens all the time there. Why? Because affirmative action requires them to hire people that normally wouldn't make it past the initial background checks. And firing them is of course out of the question....lawsuits, ya know?
So probably everything within the government files is basically...in the hands of the traffickers.
This is yet another reason why Arizona's law was necessary. Draining the swamp. Now they won't have cousin Fernando nearby....he's gotta call them from Hermosillo. And that means international lines that can be tapped...no court order needed.
Life just got a little harder for the narcos.
Not a shock that government employees are aiding drug and immigrant traffickers.
I think suddenly the feds are going to become effective.
I think suddenly the feds are going to LOOK effective.
In fact, I bet Obama’s advisers are probably trying to figure out how to take partial credit for this among Arizona voters, without pissing off the national Latino constituency they so much wish to court in the upcoming elections.
Good questions, good points to ponder.
My own suspicion is the drones are the basis for early warning to the cartels by those Politicians and subordinates within our government that are paid off by the cartels. I don’t know this, but I believe much of the woes we suffer at the hand of the Leftist criminals in power today are due to the power of the criminal drug hustling society.
You got it man. The narcos smelled weakness from the U.S.
So they went for it.
The frenzied screaming, the wailing and gnashing of teeth....is probably organized and managed by them. See if they can intimidate the Gringos into backing down. Because this is the first time anyone has shown any resistance in YEARS.
Remember that when you see the "civil rights" demonstrators in Phoenix: that shady guy over in the corner works for the narcos....and he's pushing everyone to do something.
Because he want's us to back down, so they can control the "border", not us.
It's a real live war. People don't get that.
"I don't know how to stop the drug traffic, and I've been in it for 38 years," the sheriff, widely touted as the toughest cop in the nation, told Harper's in 2001. "I think if I knew, I'd be the president. I can give you what's been said 50 years ago. ... It's the same thing we're saying today tough law enforcement, prevention, rehabilitation ... Nothing's changed. The stuff coming across the border that we catch? Ten percent. Fifty years ago, 10 percent. Today, 10 percent. Nothing's changed ... I don't know how to solve the problem. Don't ask me."
>>I think suddenly the feds are going to become effective.<<
Post of the DAY!!!
“I think suddenly the feds are going to become effective......until November!
Will these racist assaults ever end?
You should read the constitution and learn the actual definition of treason. It’s the only defined crime in it.
Please put me on the border ping. I probably won’t be on it long, but this is key right now. — FRegards ....
And .. TA DA !!!!
Ohio wants to know what Arizona did so they can do it too!!!!!
Talk about revolution !!! I think this might be a stroke of genius on Arizona’s part .. sometimes .. all it takes is a little spark to light the fire.
They will be “effective” for as long as McCain stays “conservative”.
What I’m worried about .. I live 11 miles from the border (in San Diego), and if Arizona scares the illegals out of there, guess where they’re gonna move .. CA.
I hope our police depts are ready.
LOL! McCain is a stinking rat but other rats have been exposed too:
“only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid or comfort.”
We’re not at war with the drug cartels, gangs, smugglers and the ensuing invasion? Just because our government lacks the intestinal fortitude to call it what it is doesn’t mean it’s not a war. It’s a war every night for me, living here at the border.
Yeah, but, the more salient question is, "Are YOU ready?"
I'm 500 miles away from you, and entertain no illusions but what we'll feel it up here, too, before long. Only so many guys can hang out at the home Depot parking lot, y'know.
Well alright...it’s working already.
The law doing it’s job.
Look for 0 to help the poor guy out.
Your feelings should not lead to an abuse of the constitution. Haven’t we had enough of that with liberals?
Just added you
...and it’s already beginning to reap results! Awesome, AZ!!!
maybe Holder can bail them out:
“AG Holder Helps MS13 Illegal Alien Gangbangers Charged With Murder”
Three illegal immigrant gang members who faced the death penalty for murdering a Maryland man last summer have been spared by the nations chief law enforcement officer who has ordered prosecutors not to seek the maximum punishment.
Attorney General Eric Holder intervened on behalf of the El Salvadoran gangbangers by directing federal prosecutors handling their conspiracy and murder case to rule out the death penalty, according to a Virginia-based news web site that broke the story this week. The three illegal immigrants are members of a notoriously violent street gang called Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13) that has spread throughout the country like the plague.
I don't know about that. As I was driving home from work, I heard on the radio that Sacramento was debating the removal of anti-gay language from a law from 1950 -- language that was inserted in reaction to a child murder from the late 1940's.
You bet the Narcos smelled weakness. Obama won’t even look tough in the face of a nuclear armed Iran and Venezuela. In fact, the only people he’s acted tough to are our strongest and most loyal allies. One state in the union takes actions to fight the illegal invasion and Obama is angry at enforcing federal laws. The Mexican drug cartels KNOW Obama is weak and they know they will get away with pushing their poison across the borders with the illegal aliens that mule it in to the country. Obama and his merry band of democrats don’t care about the drugs coming in to the country because drugs lead to a compliant democrat voting block. More crime, more poverty, more violence, more drug addicted babies, and more broken families are all good for democrats.
And during the whole time, while this operation was underway, McLame was a traitor to the US, helping undermine any and all attempts to curb this and hundreds of thousands of other abuses by illegals.
McLame is responsible for the level of crime we now have with illegals.
Government employees involved?
What a surprise!
I hope you're right. But I personally don't think the Feds will really sit up and take notice until a sitting Senator or administration official is involved in an incident or bad business with illegals.
A secretary in County Attorney Ed Rheinheimer’s office.
Good thing he kept his mouth shut.
Crist is out and Rubio just showed his pro-illegal immigration colors, so who is left?
Arizona is the 48th state and last of the contiguous states admitted to the Union, achieving statehood on February 14, 1912 - the 50th anniversary of Arizona's recognition as a territory of the United States. Arizona is noted for its desert climate, exceptionally hot summers, and mild winters, however it also features pine forests and mountain ranges in the northern high country, with cooler weather than in the lower deserts.

1. In the first year of Darius the son of Ahasuerus, of the seed of the Medes, who was made king over the realm of the Chaldeans:
2. In the first year of his reign, I, Daniel, perceived in the books the number of years* , which, according to the word of the Lord that came to Jeremiah the prophet, must pass before the end of the desolations of Jerusalem; seventy years:
* בספרים מספר השנים = 1177
I don’t know it sucks. Rubio is pro-amnesty and is Mel Martinez 2.
Yes the relative connection- a deputy sheriff was murdered and to begin with it seemed the murderer got away clean. He was later caught in Juarez and turned over by Mexican officials. It came out that immediately after the murder he went to his aunt at the motor vehicle office and she made him a driver’s license in a different name which was why he was able to get through the roadblocks set for him. Within 30 minutes of murdering the deputy he had a state issued driver’s license that matched the computer law enforcement uses. Just think about that.
People away from the border have no idea the level of crime and corruption that goes with smuggling and other illegal activity on the border.
“I think suddenly the feds are going to become effective.
So, 460,000 illegals in AZ - 69 illegals arrested by Feds = only 459,931 more illegals to go!
Wow...way to go Feds (Heavy sarcasm)
But another drug gang would take its place. It’s like cutting grass.
I'll bet he's searching for a way to stop the boarder fence. It'll be referred to as "environmentally unfriendly."
"Save the planet. Open the boarders."
The democrat base doesn't work. They feed. Because of that, they can't send large donations to the democrat party. The democrats party has to get big money from somewhere, because the working people in America aren't sending it to them. Al Gore and the Chinese Monks, Obomas millions in $200 untraceable donations, the Joyce Foundation (no one knows where their money comes from)..........
Article III, Section 3. Treason against the United States shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act or on Confession in open Court.
Looks like she committed treason. Giving Aid and Comfort to the enemies of the US. Everyone who aids an illegal alien commits treason and we need to start prosecuting them.
Were not at war with the drug cartels, gangs, smugglers and the ensuing invasion? Just because our government lacks the intestinal fortitude to call it what it is doesnt mean its not a war. Its a war every night for me, living here at the border.
You are making a connection that does not exist. According to the text a declaration of war does not have to exist for someone to commit treason. If someone is an Enemy of the United States, and illegal invaders most certainly are, then anyone giving aid and comfort to them is committing treason.
