    STOCKTON - The suspicions of deputies delivering a court order in east Stockton on Wednesday afternoon led them to a haul of Border Patrol uniforms, a missing Sheriff's Office badge and a 36-year-old man with an outstanding warrant for forgery. According to the Sheriff's Office, deputies were serving a protective order at a residence at East Cherokee and North Wilcox roads when they spotted a vehicle nearby with expired registration tags. It appeared unoccupied, but the front driver's side window was down. When deputies approached, they saw a man in the driver's seat, which had been fully reclined. He appeared...

    Por Esto (Merida, Yucatan) 10/28/09 “Mordida”, a favorite extortion and bribe in Mexico In Cancun, Mexico, police stopped a driver, a visiting tourist, for an alleged “administrative violation.” Then they asked the tourist for up to $300 dollars so she could proceed without having a penalty issued to her. It turned out that the victim of this extortion was Michelle Fischbach, a state senator from Minnesota, who later presented a written complaint to the local authorities regarding the episode. Five Cancun “Tourist Police” officers are now under investigation for their personal attempt at extortion. “Mordida” (a “bite”) is a common...

    At a time when 83% of Americans view government corruption as a very important problem, isn't it time that we stop fostering a culture of corruption by failing to control illegal immigration? Most illegal aliens come from countries where corruption is rampant. In 2008, the average corruption score of the ten countries with the largest number of their citizens residing illegally in the United States was 3.43 out of a possible ten signifying a serious to rampant level of corruption. Corruption is involved in virtually everything illegal aliens do. They either sneak into the United States or lie to consular...

    La Prensa (Managua, Nicaragua) 6/9/09 Op/col. by Carlos Ball, “Immigrants or emigrants” Prosperous countries attract immigrants. Such was the case of Argentina at the start of the 20th century; of Venezuela, in the middle of the last century, and of the United States until recently. Argentina and then Venezuela became countries of emigrants. Now, sadly, everything seems to indicate that the United States is not only in the middle of a recession, but that this great country is falling into a hard decadence, brought about by interventionist policies, excessive government expenditures and high taxes. For many years, foreign students who...

    El Heraldo (Tegucigalpa, Honduras) 6/3/09 The rain of white powder that falls from above is not snow or heavenly manna, it’s part of the cocaine that the drug cartels pass through Honduras without major problem.

According to an annual report of the “Ministerio Público”, 55 kilos were seized in 2005, 2,714 in 2006, 1,704 in 2007, 6,764 in 2008 and in 2009 the tally is already at 6,655 kilos.

    Let us begin by stating a first principle. As something becomes more available, it becomes cheaper, and vice versa. This is the law of supply and demand. It is a fundamental, irrefutable law of economics, so well-proven that it needs no discussion. What must be pointed out here, though, is that sweat is a quantity covered by the law of supply and demand. As sweat becomes more available, it becomes cheaper. One purpose of immigration laws is to regulate the amount of sweat in the country, that is, the size of the labor pool. Immigration adds workers to the labor...

    Border Patrol agents are arresting an increased number of dangerous criminals at the border, officials say. "We're talking about major things. Homicides, sex offenders, big robberies, armed robberies--things to that degree," says agent Mike Scioli. Scioli says more dangerous criminals are trying to enter the U.S. -- a disturbing yet growing trend along the southern border. This past weekend, a group of 34 illegals were apprehended by agents near Ajo. Two of them were members of a notorious and ruthless gang known as MS-13. How did agents find out? Finger prints and tattoos were a dead-giveaway. "These two individuals, not...
