  • Volunteers travel from afar to build border fence

    05/29/2006 8:58:07 PM PDT · by SandRat · 12 replies · 853+ views
    PALOMINAS — For many people, building a barbed-wire fence under the burning Arizona sun would probably be the last way they would want to spend their Memorial Day weekend. Not Minuteman Project volunteer Christie Czajkowski, however. She signed up for the group’s weekend fence-building inauguration almost as soon as she heard about it — even though it meant driving 15 hours from her home in Chula Vista, Calif. “What else am I going to do, go to another beach party?” laughed the 33-year-old baker as she paused from a turn at stringing wire. “No, I need to do something to...

    YAKIMA, Wash. - Mexican President Vicente Fox told hundreds of farm workers here Wednesday that his country and the United States can't go it alone in trying to fix immigration problems. "It's clear the purpose is to reach an agreement that can give security, that can give legality, that can give flow to the migrant people," Fox said in Spanish on his second day of a four-day visit to the western U.S. "I think we are closer to the end of this route. This is a shared responsibility, the immigration reform." Fox's speech came on the same day the U.S....

    Imagine the following dilemma facing an American president one day in the future (when, we hope, our real-time intelligence will have reached a high degree of accuracy, precision and timeliness): Within the past hour, a terrorist organization, known to have acquired several nuclear weapons, has been observed by a U.S. imaging system loading the weapons onto vehicles and preparing to leave for an unknown destination. A delay of even an hour or two in launching a U.S. strike on that location could mean the group would depart, contact might be lost, and the weapons would be smuggled into the United...
  • leftist UFPJ says call Senators (toll free) and demand full citizenship rights for illegals

    05/19/2006 7:58:30 AM PDT · by Gopher Broke · 11 replies · 511+ views
    Please forward widely! Call your Senator today to tell him/her not to sign on to an anti-immigrant, pro-militarization agenda! For nearly five years the Bush administration has claimed the only way to make our country safe from terrorism is to wage wars abroad and expand Presidential power at the expense of rights at home. Now President Bush wants us to believe that our security depends on militarizing the U.S. border. Pandering to his right-wing base, on May 15th President Bush proposed sending 6,000 National Guard soldiers to the U.S.-Mexico border to keep undocumented immigrants out of the U.S. Guard soldiers...

    Dueling protests reflect immigration divideBy SUZANNE GAMBOA Associated Press Writer May 12. 2006 10:41PM Reflecting the American divide over immigration, protesters on both sides stood a few feet from each other near the Capitol shouting chants and exchanging accusations of racism. The protesters were kept apart Friday by helmeted police officers who stood inside a ring of yellow police tape. A Minuteman Project rally marked the end of a cross-country caravan by the anti-immigration group, whose members patrol the U.S.-Mexican border in search of illegal border crossers. The caravan began in Los Angeles. Minuteman demonstrators, who numbered less than 100,...

    ..... E-Mail the AuthorThe GOP is blowing itPosted: May 12, 2006 1:00 a.m. Eastern There's a lot of talk going around about how bad the November elections are going to be for the Republican Party. I ought to know – I'm doing a lot of that talking with grassroots conservatives every day on our four-hour radio show. The GOP has only itself to blame for its problems, and I say this as a proud conservative Republican who twice voted for George Bush and wants very badly to see him regain his political footing. The Republican Party, which for 25 years...

    The U.S. Border Patrol is alerting Mexican officials when civilian border patrol groups detain or allegedly mistreat suspected illegal immigrants, according to a newspaper report published Tuesday.

    “The American people are fed up with the hemorrhaging borders, and we want action now. We’re done talking, and we want action,” [Steven] Eichler said before the rally. “The American people just aren’t going to take it any longer. We’re tired of this invasion force occupying America. If you can’t come here legally, get the hell out.” People from all over Texas and the nation were in attendance Saturday, with some coming from as far away as Montana to voice their support for immigration reform. Many said that they do not support amnesty for undocumented immigrants already here, and...

    Leading the Minuteman caravan to Washington, D.C. is our own Lyman Stucky in his patriotic Spirit of Allegiance vehicle -- a 1970 Mercury Cougar with 351 Cleveland. I just spoke with Lyman on the cell phone from a truckstop as he put $52 worth of fuel into the Spirit of Allegiance. That was about 80% of a tank, and the gas was $2.98/gal. I pledged to pay for that tank of gas. This is a very expensive proposition for him going 3,000 miles each way in a vehicle that gets 12-14 mpg. Coincidentally, the truck stop was on a corner....
