Without Immigration Enforcement — Fences and Laws Mean Nothing
By Frosty Wooldridge:
Re: “Without a secure border, reform efforts are wasted” Denver Post editorial/2/26/10
Once again, the Denver Post dances around the elephant in the kitchen with its latest editorial. Editors admonish government officials for a defective fence along the Mexican border. They praise Homeland Security Chief Janet Napolitano, “Napolitano wisely has ordered a reassessment of border security strategy. Immigration reform will not have a chance of becoming reality until the U.S. can better control its borders.”
First of all, Janet Napolitano personifies the “Peter Principle”, which states that government officials enjoy promotion to their highest level of incompetence. As Arizona’s governor, she watched her state become a major expressway for illegal aliens. She did nothing to stop the invasion. She stood paralyzed while Phoenix became the carjacking capitol of the world with 57,000 cars stolen annually. Illegals overran Arizona’s schools, medical systems and prisons. Drugs and lay-up houses flourished. National Park Ranger Kris Eggle suffered death by being gunned down by drug runners at Organ Pipe National Monument. Thousands of tons of trash accumulated on the land from illegals storming the border.
Additionally, U.S. Senators McCain and Kyle did nothing to stop the onslaught—as well as the rest of the U.S. Congress—save Congressman Tom Tancredo from Colorado. Drunk and criminal aliens killed citizens and police officers with equal abandon. All the while, Phoenix Mayor Gordon provided illegal alien sanctuary policy to protect
Citizens like Kathy McKee and Russell Pearce pushed for Proposition 200 to stop the invasion. Anti-illegal immigration groups formed to stop the incursion. Sheriff Joe Arpaio battled to arrest, prosecute and deport illegals, but found Napolitano his biggest obstacle. Rusty Childress created ImmigrationBuzz.com to stop illegals from invading Arizona communities.
SIMPLE, EFFECTIVE METHOD FOR STOPPING ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION: INTERNAL ENFORCEMENT
The United States code 8, section 1377: 274, 275, 276, 277, states that it, “Violates federal law to aid, abet, assist, transport, employ or house an illegal alien…punishable by a fine of $2,000 up to $10,000.00 per illegal hired and not more than five years in prison.”
Yet, Janet Napolitano never enforced it, never pursed it and never served Arizona citizens. She never engaged federal authorities to enforce the law. Neither did Senators McCain and Kyle. Thus, illegal aliens, along with traffickers and employers, knowing they would not be prosecuted---created an underground bus system equaling Greyhound Bus Lines. Traffickers delivered their illegal labor contraband to all points across the USA.
While that phenomenon grew, Mayors from over 30 cities in America enacted “Sanctuary Policy” for illegal aliens. Mayor Webb of Denver joined and his sanctuary policy continues with Mayor John Hickenlooper. Criminal aliens may be arrested as many as five to 19 times, but never deported as in the case of illegals like Garcia Gomez who killed Denver Officer Donald Young or recently, illegal Francis Hernandez, arrested and let go 19 times, until he killed two women and a three year old child licking his ice cream at a Baskin and Robbins. In San Francisco, an illegal named Ramos, shot and killed a father and two sons at a stop light for no reason other than his own road rage. Mayor Gavin Newsome continues to provide “Sanctuary Policy” for illegals in the Golden Gate City. Thousands and thousands of criminal cases occur against Americans across the nation in sanctuary cities from San Francisco to Chicago to New York City.
What would solve all of the murders, ID forgeries, ID fraud, illegal employment, loss of tax revenues, anchor babies, degraded schools, overloaded prisons, rapes, shoplifting, home burglaries, drunk driving, unlicensed and uninsured drivers, and criminal activity with 20 million illegal aliens now residing within America?
ENFORCE U.S. IMMIGRATION LAWS ALREADY ON THE BOOKS
Logical, rational and common sense dictates that Napolitano engage ICE agents across the nation to arrest, prosecute and jail employers of illegal aliens. How simple! How astute! How effective! Once employers of illegals see a methodical sweep across the nation with some of their comrades-in-crime walking out of buildings in shackles, a transformation toward law and order would prevail. Illegal aliens would self-deport on their own dime back to their own countries.
In the meantime, Americans would discover jobs at a living wage! English would flourish once again as Americans worked the jobs that Americans have always worked. What a concept!
Additionally, Americans pay for over 572,000 military personnel languishing on 700 bases in 120 countries around the world. By bringing back 50,000 of them to stand guard on our southern border would secure our borders within a month! Additionally, their presence would stop the $75 to $100 billion drug trade crossing our borders annually.
WHAT STOPS SUCH REASONABLE ACTION TO SECURE OUR BORDERS AND REGAIN OUR COUNTRY?
A few people in high places make a lot of money off our 21st century slave labor force. Corporations that employ millions of illegals -- make obscene profits. At the same time, we taxpaying American citizens, according to the Edwin Rubenstein Report, pay out $346 billion annually across 15 federal agencies to pay for illegal aliens. We suffer degraded schools with 50 to 76 percent dropout rates. Our medical systems bankrupt. Our prisons overflow with illegals.
Yet, you won’t see our U.S. Congress mandating enforcement because somebody makes a lot of money on many levels. Even papers like the Denver Post continue dancing around illegal immigration. It resembles a huge national cartel of “Don’t ask, don’t tell.”
Until Americans elect governors, mayors and Congressional reps to uphold our laws, we can expect more of what has degraded our civilization in the past 30 years. We’ll also find ourselves in deeper water and consequences as legal and illegal immigration add another 100 million people within 25 years. Our apathy and stupidity will prove our downfall as a civilization.
