Arizona Republic: “Two mentally disabled immigrants must be given lawyers as they fight deportation, a U.S. district court judge has ruled. Jose Franco-Gonzalez, 29, of Costa Mesa, Calif., and Guillermo Gomez-Sanchez, 48, of San Bernardino, Calif., are at the center of a case that marks one of the first instances in which a judge ordered representation for an individual in immigration proceedings, according to a coalition of advocacy lawyers arguing the men’s cases.”
Michele Malkin: “The open-borders lobby is out in full force, launching a week-long campaign yesterday to pass another illegal alien amnesty-by-another-name. . . . The so-called DREAM Act would create an official path to Democrat voter registration for an estimated 2 million, college-age illegal aliens.”
The Los Angeles Times reports that Los Angeles County is now spending $1.6 billion a year on only three illegal immigration items:
- $600 million a year for welfare and food stamps for children of US citizenship being raised by parents who are illegal aliens
- $500 million a year on healthcare for illegals
- $550 million a year on public safety costs, mostly the costs to jail criminals who are illegal aliens.
A Pew Center study found that 2.7 million children of illegal alien parents were born into U.S. citizenship in 2003, but the number rose to 4 million in 2007.
Makes one wonder what the total cost to Los Angeles County is for all illegal immigration related expenses. It’s clear now why LA must oppose Arizona’s illegal immigration law, SB 1070. If Arizona’s law were to go into effect, the law would cause a big increase in illegals moving into LA County instead of going to Arizona. The result would mean the broke county would have to pay many more millions to support the increase in its illegal immigrant population.
Arizona Governor Jan Brewer met with President Obama in the White House and asked the President to enforce federal immigration law and secure the Arizona border. President Obama has taken steps to answer her plea, but Governor Brewer is not happy. She rips Obama for his response and failing to do his duty. In the below video, Governor Brewer vents about the new signs the Bureau of Land Management installed 80 miles north of the border and just 30 miles from Phoenix.
The feds new signs are chilling when you consider that Obama is warning everybody as far as 80 miles from Arizona’s border with Mexico that the 80 miles from the sign to the border is dangerous and yet Obama will not do anything to eliminate the danger. Oops, I almost forgot, President Obama will do one thing – sue to overturn Arizona’s immigration law to prevent Arizona from taking action to protect its citizens from the drug and human smuggling epidemic that Obama warns about.
Here is the text of the sign you will see behind Governor Brewer in her video:
DANGER – PUBLIC WARNING TRAVEL NOT RECOMMENDED
- Active Drug and Human Smuggling Area
- Visitors May Encounter Armed Criminals and Smuggling Vehicles Traveling at High Rates of Speed
- Stay Away From Trash Clothing, Backpacks and Abandoned Vehicles
- If You See Suspicious Activity, Do Not Confront, Move Away and Call 911
- BLM Encourages Visitors to Use Public Lands North of Interstate 8
Here is another video by Phoenix TV station KPHO channel 5 about the new Obama administration warning signs, including another sign the BLM is installing along Arizona roads that says:
Smuggling and Illegal
Immigration May Be
Encountered in This Area
Ask yourself the following questions:
- Would you like to live in a state the federal government has declared to be unsafe because of illegal drug and human smuggling?
- Would you want your state government to do nothing to solve the problem?
- Would you want the federal government to do nothing to solve the problem?
- Should the U.S. be declaring Arizona unsafe and refusing to solve the problem and then sue Arizona when it takes action to protect its citizens from the danger created by the illegal drug and human smuggling?
Badlands: For Those Living in the Arizona County That’s Ground Zero for Drug and Human Trafficking Along the Border, the Illegal Immigration Crisis Is Personal
Phoenix New Times: “On April 27, Janet Napolitano pronounced that the border separating the United States from the Republic of Mexico is more secure than ever. . . . But Napolitano’s words rang hollow to those who live at or near the border in Cochise County . . . . The executive and legislative branches of the federal government have set up Cochise County for disaster by not coming up with a border policy to effectively handle what’s known as “‘llegal immigration’.”
