Who is Going To Have to Be Killed for this Government to Care About Border Security?

by Jayne D. Frank

Today, we received news that another stray bullet hit the University of El Paso from drug cartel violence in Juarez.  Citizens reported hearing at least 40 gunshots lasting 30-34 minutes, but the reaction of the El Paso Mayor and many of his cronies was that they were not concerned and that there was nothing they could do about it.   Oh really?  This is the second stray bullet in El Paso in a couple of months, the other hitting City Hall.  Who is going to have to be killed for Americans to get outraged and for the Obama Administration to say enough with insufficient security at our borders?  Will it be someone’s baby, your son or daughter at that university, a border security guard, or perhaps an American rancher?  Oh, I forgot, we have already had a rancher killed, and that wasn’t enough.  There have been 1,920 violent murders in Juarez this year and  6,160 murders since 2006.  This violence and infiltration into our country isn’t decreasing and isn’t going away.

Border violence has been so prevalent and increasing that Arizona border sheriffs have  pulled many of their deputies back from the border.  Sheriff Paul Babeu from Pinal County, AZ, in a letter to President Obama on August 19, has begged the President to meet him in Pinal County to hear the truth about border security after a deputy of Sheriff Babeu was shot on August 17, 80 miles north of the border by a drug smuggler with a violent criminal history, who since is loose to shoot again.

God knows, America is beseiged right now with horrible economic and job loss woes, with strife and tension over the widsom of erecting a Mosque on the graves of several thousand souls in New York, and growing overseas tensions, but securing our borders NOW and stopping the infiltration of criminals and drug smugglers into our Country to keep Americans safe is the Number One Priority for this President, and no amount of dancing around the issue or fancy words from the President over this issue is going to take this off the front burner.

Mr. President,you said you’d rather be a “Good One-Term President than a Mediocre Two-Term President” so for once do what is right, come back from your vacation in Martha’s vineyard, and personally spend some constructive time with Sheriff Babeu and officials in El Paso and put the full force of your Office behind some action before this problem escalates any further.

Update: Seems President Obama is going to go to El Paso next Tuesday to only have his photo op at Fort Bliss with the soldiers so he can claim success for the Iraq War, which is only due to the surge that went forth under President Bush.  Despite urging from other Texas politicians, the President is NOT scheduled to meet with anyone about the increased Juarez violence spilling over the border or the news today that just 100 miles from the border several dozen immigrants were found dead as a result of this violence.  Why is is he not meeting with El Paso?  Because he won that city with 68% in 2008 and doesn’t want to make waves to change that statistic for the next time around.  Talk about transparency.  If anyone is waiting for the money to be spent from the recently passed Border Security bill in Congress, keep in mind that there is nothing in the bill REQUIRING that the money be spent except in the case of an emergency, determined by President Obama.

H.R. 6080: The Truth, The Lie and The Shame!

by Jayne D. Frank

Upon reading the full text of H.R. 6080 which was signed into law quickly by President Obama, which allocates emergency funds for FY2010 for border security, what they don’t tell you is quite obvious:

The Truth:   The bill appropriates the money for emergency use in FY2010 (ending in October) to use for border security, but there is no commitment nor any obligation to use those funds.  The bill was passed obviously to appease the growing outrage from American citizens and particularly Arizona about their security but it has no real “meat” in the legislation to force Obama to do anything.

What happens at the end of FY2010 and the monies have not been used, especially the more than $193 million that are allocated to Eric Holder’s Department?  Is this another forced taxpayer slush fund, not to be used as appropriated, but at the discretion of the Federal Government?

Who will account for where the money is going – an independent third party in whom we may place our trust or another government website, with words parsed, facts hidden, and propaganda inserted about the bill’s success?

The Lie: The lie, unfortunately, is always the same.  President Obama telling the American people that he is spending $600,000 on border security and sending thousands of border agents and expanded technology to the border.

The Shame: The shame is that this is all pretense and that the Obama Administration has no intention of using the money allocated in this bill unless and  until there is an emergency.  If that emergency is the execution of one of our border sheriffs or Joe Arpaio in Arizona, no amount of money thrown at the situation by this Administration will quell the outrage and outcry from the American people.

Go to YouTube or Resistnet.com and see the latest video from Patriot Network about the Arizona border security and the Cartel’s order of execution for any of our American citizens and law enforcement trying to prevent the Cartel drug shipments from coming into the United  States.  The video says it all.   http://sheriffpaul.com is also Sheriff Babeu’s website in which he daily brings you the truth about the security on our border.

What will it take America for us to see that drug cartels, illegal immigrants and terrorists do not further infiltrate our borders?
