    WAKE UP AMERICA By Bob Haran What should be more frightening then foreigners in our country illegally and demonstrating in our cities, and LA used to be an American city. What is worse then foreigners waving foreign flags in American cities is, how well organized they are. American citizens should be up in arms over this invasion of our country. And yes, make no mistake about it, this is an invasion. An unarmed, peaceful invasion is still an invasion. Mexico lost Texas because they could not control the illegal immigration of Americans into Texas. Mexico is using that same tactic...

    By Bob Haran; The recent marches in opposition to Rep. James Sensenbrener’s bill, H.R. 4437, that would make it a felony to be in the country illegally, has raised a question in my mind. Why don't we make the people responsible for causing people to enter our country illegally, felons? Congress should amend H.R. 4437 and instead of making it a felony to be in the country illegally, make it a felony to illegally hire someone in the country illegally. To make people who are for the most part, law abiding, into felons, is ludicrous. Why does our government refuse...

    Government- Without - the Consent of the Governed by Bob Haran Arizona State Representative David Burnell Smith has made history by becoming the first legislator in America to be removed from office for violating a campaign finance law. Smith has finally paid a price for overspending on his 2004 taxpayer funded campaign for the Arizona House of Representatives. The people that elected Smith to represent them have also paid a price. Smith has been forced from the office the people of his legislative district had elected him to serve in. It seems that the American principle of, government by the...
  • Illegal Immigrants have Right to Solicit Work!

    In today's Arizona Republic,(Activists seek day-labor work center, January 13,2006), I came across this quite by Steven Montoya, a civil rights lawyer in Phoenix, regarding day laborers' soliciting employment on public sidewalks in Phoenix. "You have a constitutional right to look for a job whether you're here legally or not, but that doesn't mean you can break the law." I'm not a lawyer but if hiring illegal immigrants is illegal and if an illegal immigrant solicits employment, wouldn't that make the illegal immigrant an accessory to the crime of hiring illegal immigrants and breaking the law? Should not the soliciting...
  • JIM KOLBE, ARIZONIAN of the YEAR

    The Arizona Republic's Editorial Board selected Jim Kolbe as Arizonian of the Year for 2005. Jim Kolbe did do Arizona a great service in 2005, he decided not to run in 2006. However, Kolbe's selection by the Republic does bring up another issue for debate. Should there be drug testing for the Republic's Editorial Board before selecting the Arizonian for the Year, next year? Bob Haran, Phoenix, AZ
  • Mexico Upset with Border Wall

    Mexico thinks it has a right to criticize the U.S. plan to build a 700 mile wall on our southern border to keep out people entering our country illegally. Mexican Foreign Secretary Lois Derbez says that Mexico has asked the governments of Central American nations along with Columbia and the Dominican Republic, "To join in the fight and to denounce the measure passed by the U.S. House of Representatives to build a wall," on our side of the border with Mexico. I find it to be the height of arrogance for the foreign ministry of any nation to criticize what...
  • A Clue to Solving Illegal Immigration Problem.

    Let's face it, our elected officials don't have a clue about how to reduce illegal immigration. After President Bush proposed a guest worker program in January 2004, he repeatedly has said, illegal border crossing must stop. He now says he is looking for an overall strategy to curb illegal immigration. Congress can't agree on what to do about illegal immigration. McCain, Kolbe, Flake and Ted Kennedy, want a guest worker program and also want to allow some undocumented immigrants to become legal residents, but they insist that is not an amnesty. Senator Jon Kyl wants illegal immigrants to go home,...

    Regarding Congressman Jim Kolbe's decision not to run for reelection, in a word, "Hallelujah." When someone retires or passes away, we try to say something nice about that person, we downplay his negatives and point out his positives. I would like to do the same for Congressman Jim Kolbe, but I really don't have the time to do that much research, other then to say, I wholeheartedly approve of his decision to leave Congress. I'm sure Kolbe will be missed by Mexican President Vincente Fox, he is one of the best members of Congress Mexico has ever had in the...

    Farmer, Patriots get patrol help from Minutemen BY BLAKE SCHMIDT, Sun Staff Writer --See Image(s) Below-- Published on: September 17, 2005 Eight members of the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps of Tombstone came to Yuma for the first time this weekend to patrol an area near the border with the Yuma Patriots, where a local farmer had asked for help with an increasing number of illegal immigrants trampling his crops. The volunteer patrol groups, who were unarmed, helped the Border Patrol capture two groups of illegal immigrants Friday night, and ran into a snag when the Cocopah police told them they...

    Russell Pearce for Governor Like many other Arizona politicians, Governor Napolitano is a Janet come lately in addressing the problems facing Arizona that are caused by illegal immigration and a unsecured border. Clearly, the popularity of Proposition 200 has motivated many politicians, including Napolitano, to stop ignoring the issue and get on board the illegal immigration bandwagon. Governor Napolitano, and presidential want-to-be, Senator John McCain, certainly want to down-play their strong opposition to passage of Prop. 200. Many Republican politicians, who wouldn't touch the illegal immigration issue before passage of Proposition 200, are now championing the issue. These Janet, and,...
  • Don Goldwater abortion position questioned.

    Arizona Conservative | 8/11/05 | Bob Haran
    Don Goldwater, who aspires to be the Republican nominee for governor, doesn't seem to understand the meaning of pro-life. Mr. Goldwater told the Arizona Conservative that his "Views are pretty straight forward," and that, " I am pro-life with a few exceptions," but those exceptions give evidence to his true position on abortion. His exceptions in his own words are "An abortion can only be considered in cases of rape or incest and only before viability of the fetus, the only other exception would be in the case of mortal danger to the mother." I think Mr. Goldwater's exceptions would...
