    Border Police officers who came on Wednesday to the Yissa Beracha outpost near Mitzpe Yericho set on fire building materials brought to the outpost by local residents. The residents, who were brutally evicted from their homes last week, brought the material in order to re-build their destroyed homes. An eyewitness told Arutz Sheva that the residents had placed wood that they purchased using donations they received, for the purpose of renewing the community. On Wednesday afternoon, the eyewitness said, two jeeps carrying Border Police officers arrived. The men who were in the area feared they would be arrested and fled...

    An initiative to create a statewide border police force failed in its second effort to get on the ballot and appears to be headed for California's political dustbin. The Border Police Initiative fell far short of the 373,816 signatures needed to make it on the November ballot, according to the California Secretary of State's Office -- short by 373,816 signatures. "The counties did not submit any petitions for verification," said Nghia Nguyen, a spokeswoman for Secretary of State Bruce McPherson. The proposal was the brainchild of Assemblyman Ray Haynes, R-Temecula, who launched a signature-gathering effort last year. Haynes, who did...

    SACRAMENTO - A proposed ballot measure to create a California border police to enforce immigration laws is dead after its campaign failed to collect enough voter signatures. Supporters had until this Monday to submit 598,105 valid voter signatures to county election offices. By late Friday afternoon, however, campaign officials knew they had fallen significantly short. "It doesn't look like it's going to make it," said consultant Dave Gilliard, who helped engineer the 2003 campaign that ousted former Gov. Gray Davis. Gilliard estimated that the campaign fell short by about 100,000 valid signatures. The initiative stemmed from what Assemblyman Ray Haynes,...

    Lake Forest, CA — Minuteman Project founder and 48th Congressional District candidate Jim Gilchrist – who this weekend garnered the endorsement of the National Border Patrol Council, the union that represents 10,000 front-line U.S. Border Patrol agents and employees – today criticized opponent John Campbell for “backsliding” on his support of the California Border Police Initiative. Campbell in a recent media interview confirmed his discomfort and lack of commitment towards the Initiative he supposedly co-sponsors. Campbell has “sold out all of the people who have donated money and who have ‘given their blood, sweat and tears’ to get this critical...

    With the arrival of Labor Day, a campaign to put an initiative on the ballot to create the first state border police in the nation is gearing up for a show of force. Volunteers are hitting the streets across California to start gathering the nearly 600,000 signatures of registered voters that will be required by Dec. 12 to put the measure on the June 2006 ballot. George Andrews, executive director for the California Border Police Initiative in Sacramento, said campaign organizers are determined to make a big splash of ink over the holiday weekend. "That's when a lot of families...

    If the state is to form its own police force to guard the U.S.-Mexico border, it will be up to citizens to make it happen. No, not via a force of civilian volunteers like the Minuteman Project, but through the signature-collecting initiative process. State Assemblyman Ray Haynes' (R-Murrieta) proposed constitutional amendment to create a force called the California Border Police was killed in the Legislature, but the initiative just went into circulation after its ballot title and summary were approved by the state attorney general. The Antelope Valley's representatives support the effort, with state Sen. George Runner (R-Lancaster) and Assemblywoman...

    By Mark Andrew Dwyer - July 6, 2005 A majority of California lawmakers work hard to give away as much of the Golden State and its budget to illegal aliens as they can. But they don't have guts to openly say so. They will deceitfully seek all kinds of phony excuses to cover up for their de facto refusal to represent majority of California voters, that only those brainwashed in California public schools and universities and those with substandard IQ will buy. As reported by the Associated Press [1], "[t]he Judiciary Committee [of California Assembly] voted 4-2 to turn down...

    SACRAMENTO - An Assembly committee on Tuesday rejected proposed constitutional amendments seeking to deny a series of benefits to illegal immigrants and create a state border police force, but both could resurface next year as ballot initiatives. The Judiciary Committee voted 4-2 to turn down an amendment by Assemblyman Mark Wyland, R-Vista, that would prevent illegal immigrants from receiving any health care or social services not required by federal law. The committee also voted 5-2 to reject an amendment by Assemblyman Ray Haynes, R-Temecula, that would create a state border police force to supplement federal efforts to enforce immigration laws,...

    Saying that it needs more time to prepare volunteers, a Chino group planning citizen patrols at the Mexican border near San Diego this summer has rescheduled the launch date for Sept. 16, Mexican Independence Day. Border Watch organizer Andy Ramirez said he has received more than 700 applications and wants to make sure volunteers are properly trained and equipped before beginning the patrols, originally planned for Aug. 1. "There are a lot of logistics involved," said Ramirez, whose grandfather was a Mexican immigrant. Border Watch is modeled after the Minuteman Project, which drew hundreds of citizens to Arizona in April...

    "We conservatives believe government has one legitimate function — public safety. Protecting the border is public safety." The border police force also would enforce ignored laws that ostensibly forbid the hiring of illegal immigrants. For farm labor, Haynes supports a temporary guest worker program. "People coming into this country now are exploited at every level," he says. "They're exploited by traffickers, they're exploited by a large chunk of employers, they're victims of crime they can't report because they're afraid of being caught." Haynes is under no illusion that the Legislature will pass his measure. So he's aiming for a ballot...

    The latest attempt to grant driver's licenses to illegal immigrants in California cleared a Senate committee on Thursday but with provisions that restrict how the licenses can be used and what they would look like. The bill, by Sen. Gil Cedillo, D-Los Angeles, would bring California into compliance with federal law. The REAL ID Act, signed by President Bush last week, requires states to verify that people who apply for a driver's license are in the country legally. It also allows states to choose whether to issue driver's licenses to illegal immigrants as long as they have different markings —...

    SACRAMENTO -- After five months of failing to sway Democrats to his "year of reform," Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has directed his political staff to prepare for a special-election campaign that would denigrate the California Legislature and its union benefactors. Escalating the governor's fight, chief political consultant Mike Murphy said Monday that Schwarzenegger may endorse an initiative that could hobble the money-raising machine of public employee unions. Murphy said the governor has asked him to conduct polling and voter focus groups on a so-called paycheck protection initiative. "Arnold has not touched the Legislature with a feather yet compared to what the...

    On May 12, Senators John McCain (R-AZ) and Edward Kennedy (D-MA) and Representatives Jim Kolbe (R-AZ) and Jeff Flake (R-AZ) introduced companion guestworker amnesty bills, S. 1033 and H.R. 2330. The text of this legislation is not yet available, but here's what we've learned this legislation entails. Millions of currently resident illegal aliens would be permitted to buy guestworker status for a fee of $1,000. After the first three year term they could apply for three year extensions (for another $1000), and in the meantime, apply for green cards. After six years they would be eligible for permanent residency, which...
