    SACRAMENTO — California would create its own border patrol of more than 1,000 officers and volunteers under a possible 2006 ballot initiative introduced Wednesday by conservative activists and a state assemblyman. The California Border Police Act was submitted to Atty. Gen. Bill Lockyer for legal review Wednesday, the first step in getting it qualified for next year's June ballot. Its main sponsor is Assemblyman Ray Haynes, a Republican from Murrieta, who must collect 600,000 valid signatures for the initiative to qualify. "The federal government has proven itself incapable of securing our borders, so it is time for Californians to step...

    KFI AM640, Los Angeles, John and Ken Show | May 4, 2005
    Just heard on the John and Ken show that state Sen. Gil Cedillo (D, Guadalajara) is pushing through Senate Bill 591, a measure that would effectively make it impossible for police to impound the vehicles of unlicensed drivers. Known as "one bill" for his habit of, in every legislative session, introducing a bill to grant driver's licenses to illegals, Cedillo is pushing this stealth measure through the legislature. Under current law, unlicensed drivers have their cars impounded for 30 days, which can be very costly with the towing and storage fees. Cedillo's bill would end that practice. What this means...

    JAFFREY, N.H. -- A man from Mexico pleaded guilty on Tuesday to trespassing in the town of New Ipswich, N.H., as the police passed the first test of whether they can use trespassing laws against illegal immigrants on public property. Police Chief Garrett Chamberlain charged Jorge Ramirez, 21, with trespassing after federal immigration officials refused to take him into custody. He reasoned that if Ramirez was in the country illegally, he also was in the town illegally. Ramirez had admitted being in the country on forged documents. There was some question about whether the judge would allow police to prosecute...

    Rescue California ^ | May 4, 2005
    SACRAMENTO, CA: California State Assemblyman Ray Haynes (R-Riverside County) will submit language to the Attorney General tomorrow for a landmark statewide initiative that would establish a separate state police force to patrol California’s international border. Known as the “California Border Police Initiative”, the measure is the first of its kind in the nation. “The federal government has proven itself incapable of securing our borders, so it is time for Californians to step up and take matters into our own hands,” said Assemblyman Haynes. “This initiative establishes a separate and distinct state police force, much like the Highway Patrol, charged with...

    (Stopping illegals) ... & replicating success Wednesday, May 4, 2005 The lack of a shot heard 'round the world helped make the Minuteman Project successful in Arizona and inviting to California. The Minuteman Project is a citizens' neighborhood watch spotlighting illegal immigration. It describes itself as "Americans doing the jobs our government won't do. Operating within the law to support enforcement of the law." In April, roughly 1,000 volunteers kept a lookout for suspicious activity along a 23-mile sliver of sovereign soil bordering Mexico. It had been used by untold numbers of illegal aliens to sneak into America. The citizen-patriots...

    John and Ken, talk show hosts on KFI 640 in Los Angeles, are holding a candlelight vigil for the memory of Officer David March. Officer March was a murder victim of illegal alien Armando Garcia, who fled back across the border and who is being protected by the Mexican government. Mexico has a policy of not returning criminals to face justice who may get the death penalty in the U.S. In a staggering revelation that I just heard today, approximately 3,000 people in U.S. border states have been murder victims of Mexicans who flee back across the border. In addition...

    Illegal immigrants 'are not free-loaders,' says Guatemalan bishop WASHINGTON (CNS) -- Illegal immigrants "are not free-loaders" but hard-working people who are seeking better lives for their families because social and economic improvements are not readily available to the Latin American poor, said a Guatemalan bishop. "Some call them 'illegals.' But according to the market model, they are better described as entrepreneurs without assets, pursuing the American dream," said Bishop Alvaro Ramazzini Imeri of San Marcos, Guatemala. "They work hard, often in several jobs, supporting a way of life that many take for granted," he said April 13 in written testimony...

    False licenses, other cards sold, indictments say By Eric Swedlund and Barrett Marson ARIZONA DAILY STAR A three-year undercover investigation into widespread corruption at Arizona Motor Vehicle Division offices resulted in the indictments of 34 people suspected of making and selling fraudulent driver's licenses, authorities said. In one of the largest public corruption cases in state history, MVD employees have for years been accepting bribes of up to $3,500 for unlawfully providing state identification cards and driver's licenses, according to indictments released Thursday. Among those indicted are 26 current and former employees of 10 MVD offices in Southern Arizona and...

    Full Scenario: Terrorists Seek Entry to the U.S. via Mexico Just As NewsPundit First Predicted This morning Bill Gertz reported in the Washington Times that terrorists seek entry to the US through Mexico. Readers of NewsPundit know I predicted this back on March 6th. (See my report below). I quote briefly from the Gertz report: * * * A group of al Qaeda terrorists is attempting to infiltrate the United States from Mexico to conduct attacks in the country, The Washington Times has learned. At least 14 al Qaeda members are said to be in Mexico, said officials who...
