It’s not just about illegal aliens working in the United States tax free, using government sponsored health care and education, and shifting their earnings to their families abroad. The federal government’s failure to secure our borders has created a potentially severe security situation, not just in the south west, but all over the United States. We’ve got tens of thousands of troops protecting the borders in Iraq and Afghanistan, but we’re unable to stop the flow of people coming in through our own southern border.
Atlanta’s WSB-TV2 aired a segment on U.S. border security after it obtained records from a federal detention center near Phoenix, Ariz., and found current listings for illegal aliens from Afghanistan, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, Sudan and Yemen.
“We have left the back door to the United States open,” former Rep. J.D. Hayworth told the station. “We have to understand that there are definitely people who mean to do us harm who have crossed that border.”
WSB-TV 2 published a population breakdown from an Immigration and Customs Enforcement staging facility in Florence, Ariz., dated April 15, 2010, which includes detainees from as far away as Afghanistan, Armenia, Bosnia, Egypt, Ghana, Iraq, Iran, Jordan, Kenya, Morocco, Pakistan, Sudan, Uzbekistan, Yemen, Botswana, Turkey and many other countries.
Based on U.S. Border Patrol statistics, there were 30,147 OTMs apprehended in fiscal year 2003; 44, 614 in fiscal year 2004; 165,178 in fiscal year 2005; and 108,025 in fiscal year 2006. Most were caught along the U.S. Southwest border.
According to the Department of Homeland Security’s 2008 Yearbook of Immigration Studies, from the Office of Immigration Statistics, federal law enforcement agencies detained 791,568 deportable aliens in fiscal year 2008 and 5,506 of them were from 14 “special-interest countries.”

Hat tip Woodpile Report
Good job Janet Napolitano.
Hopefully all these illegal immigrants will soon be roosting in your trees in Washington D.C.Â Â
And why not?Â Obama is there.
Why is a non-border state the only one I see reporting this??
Now THAT is a really good question!!!!!!!
The USA will be invaded the week after the dollar crashes and no one from any form of government reports for work.Â The time to put our house in order has long past.Â When the SHTF, you are going to wish you had moved to rural areas 500+ miles from Mexico and 50 miles from any incorporated city, no other place will be safe from the murdering freeloaders.Â They’re coming to get you Barbara!!
@GodSend:Â I have a question for you.Â Are you familiar with the term:Â Asshat?
I’m just trying to free you from your mental shackles, Shackles! I don’t usually wear a hat on my ass – do you?
No he isn’t familar – he is just acting like one.
The answer to the question why a non-border state is reporting this is that Atlanta is overrun with illegal aliens. It seems that Georgia passed the prototype of Arizona’s immigration law in 2007. See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oxe1WO27B_I&feature=related.
I’m not too worried about the number of people from “terror-sponsoring countries” coming across our southern border. I expect that more of them just fly in on non-immigrant visas, but I’m too lazy to update theÂ research IÂ did on that in 2007. See http://gringomalosblog.blogspot.com/2007/07/pop-quiz-with-strange-answer.html.
“illegal aliens working in the United States tax free”
Um, many illegal aliens pay taxes. On the other hand, it’sÂ very likely for a white person to work in US tax-free, or to be on welfare or onÂ the non-producing government’s payroll.
“illegal aliens…Â Â using government sponsored health care and education”
How dare they accept benefits freely given to them! I am fine with my money being stolen, I just want it to go to person A instead of person B.
“illegal aliens… Â shifting their earnings to their families abroad”
How dare they spend the money they earned!
“weâ€™re unable to stop the flow of people coming in through our own southern border.”
We’re working on it. If we destroy enough jobs with our ill-advised, socialist, and xenophobicÂ policies, thenÂ the problem will actually be too many US citizens emmigrating to Mexico.
Paul Revere: This is not Napolitano’s fault. As AZ AG and GOV she opposed mass migration and infiltration of America, and wanted a secure border. Its OBAMA who doesnt want federal and state laws enforced.
Her hands are tied by the President. She is a patriot. I trust her. Of course she’s only been in DC for 18 months. Not long enough to generate an anti-body to the G-Flu.
â€œWe have to understand that there are definitely people who mean to do us harm who have crossed that border.â€”
They mean to do us harm? Then why are they picking fruit and mowing lawns? Better hire them at theÂ Treasury/FedÂ so they can counterfeit money and devalue it in criminal violation of the Coinage Act. Or hire them at banks so they can commit bailment fraud and other kinds of fraud. Hire them in the drug war in a parastical position like judge, court clerk, lawyer, jailor, or cop where they canÂ not onlyÂ beÂ a direct economic drain on society, but can also hamper the productive economic activities of others.
“Its OBAMA who doesnt want federal and state laws enforced.”
I have to agree with Obama in this case. I don’t want my house infiltrated with migrants. I will call the police if they try to enter. But if my neighborÂ allows 20 immigrants to live and/or work at his ranch, why should you or I have any say? Why do you want to control the property and lives of others?
But if my neighborÂ allows 20 immigrants to live and/or work at his ranch, why should you or I have any say?……….
Most of us here (presumably) do not want to have a say in that. Hire 200 immigrants to help at your ranch if you like. Just make sure they are immigrants…………not illegal aliens.
Gosh-darn, it’s those damn Muslims again. They are out to get us all.
Same-ol crap from the same-ol media. Got to keep us on our toes when we’re dealing with those “terrorists”. Of course the TRULY evil ones keep pulling their dirty deeds right under our noses.
There is a easy solution to the illegal immigration issue. $10,000 a head every time your caught using them. No free NOTHING.
If there is no incentive to be here. They will leave. Does our “corrupt” government want this? NO If they did, this would of been a non-issue years ago. Wake up folks! The people in power are taking us (U.S.) down. What is it going to take to rid ourselves of these traitors? I see only one (rev)solution.
The majority of Americans realize that illegal entry into the U.S. is a major threat to national security thus becoming a threat to the American people and the U.S. economy.A concerted effort by the news media and Washington DC would have you believe it’s a race/immigration issue that needs new legislation to allow Mexican Nationals the right to gain citizenship in the U.S. that, in their opinion, would satisfy all parties concerned.Once again the proposal of a National ID Card is on the table and would require all U.S. citizens to possess this card to acquire a job. This in turn would require a amnesty program for Mexican Nationals currently living in the U.S.,so they could also acquire the new ” Work ID ” . This would satisfy the Hispanic-American voter demands at the expense ofÂ ‘ alienating ‘ the general public.
In my humble opinion it all boils down to the money.
By requiring a National ID Card to obtain a job, the government can increase tax revenues by insuringÂ ” all “Â workers in the U.S. are documented and paying their fair share toÂ good ol Uncle Sam.While the U.S. military is being used in the Middle East to insure the flow of oil and natural gas to American consumers. Wealthy corporations and banking institutions are pulling the strings of corrupt politicians to satisfy their thirst for wealth and power.At the expense of the American People, the Constitution, and National Security.Until the American People unite at the voting booths in an attempt to weed out the corrupt career politicians, ” politics as usual ” will continue.
We want to control the border Dr Acula. And we want our sovereignty respected. If your rancher friend wants to employ 20 Mexican nationals to pick fruit, build fences, or control varmits, there is a process to do so and an appropriate visa toÂ for legal workers.
Under that process, thereÂ are responsibilities that your rancher friend must meet toÂ protect these people from exploitation, and the community from health and safety issues.
Where do you think the e-coli comes from on all the lettuce?
napolitano a patriot? you trust her? DUDE???!!!!
I do. I watched her in AZ for many years. She is a true public servant. Don’t always agree with her politics, but she is honest, trustworthy, and works on behalf of the people, not the lobbyists.
She is also dedicated to doing her job, not looking for perks or press.
how can ” her hands be tied by the president” if all these ass kissing adjectives you use are true? Â our founding fathers were patriots not this sellout . your own comments on her are contradictory,read them.do you remember her recent comments about the tea partys and ex military ? oh and dont use the word terrorist .
Jaream: It has been hisÂ policy to leave the border defenseless. She has been an advocate for a secure border and requested troops as Govenor to do so. I am judging her on her years of service in Arizona, not on her comments about the tea party, or the Timothy McVeighs of the world. Saw the comments about vets and I am one. No one is perfect.
John McCain is a “sellout”. He was as desperate as Bob Dole to become President.Â Others politicians, like Phil Gordon as mayor of Phoenix, are always campaigning for their nextÂ job while they are in the current one. Blind ambition. Â Never saw that with her. That’s my opinion of her based upon her years of service here.Â I sleep better at night knowing she is on the job because I know she is working, and working for US; not networking for fame or fortune.
You are entitled to your opinion. As am I. Maybe you know her personally. I don’t.
MDF, you are a muslim raghead. You ragheads are so obvious. May Allah bless you with a wad of camel puke.
No substantial rebuttal. Just the verbal attacks. Typical Jew-boy response. The truth WILL come out VERY soon. I don’t know where you’re going to live because we don’t want you here. Europe or Asia? I doubt that too. Maybe Africa? Better yet, Mars. I don’t know how you’re going to survive though, you won’t haveÂ any decent folksÂ to suck off of, but yourselves. That would be truly be funny to watch.
Just remember Abdul, when everyone figures out that Israel pulled off 911, you will have repeated history AGAIN. Mankind will be sick of your shit and send you packing. I for one look forward to it.
(Man, do I ever love messing with you pukes.) Oops, I guess I let a little attack of my own slip by there.
let me get this straight,you trust Nappy??? isn’t she the one who was sleeping during Obama;s address to the nation???Â She did nothing as Gov.of AZ,she never tried to get the border closed,she actually ask for an investigation into Sheriff Joe’s jail and arrest of illegal aliens… She tried every way possible to keep him from arresting illegal aliens..1 million people a year immigrate,to this country ,every year,they do it legally,some even spending 12 years and $30,000 in fees and you think illegal aliens should be given amnesty for breaking our laws??Â visit this site ,and look up Jordin Paulder…. Â Â http://WWW.V.O.I.A.C.
Tinnin:Â Â I trust Nappy in this job. i wouldn’t want her in the Senate promoting left wing policies, and I wouldn’t want her on the Supreme Court creating law to support those policies; but for the job she is in, yeah, I trust her to do a good job at a thankless task.
She could be making a lot more money on the outside and working half the time.
As for Illegal immigrants, you must be new here. No one has been more vocal and outspoken on that issue as I have been. No one.
Are you nuts? Mexicans working in the US illegally probably pay more in taxes, percentage wise, than YOU do. It’s their EMPLOYER who goes to jail if he doesn’t with hold FICA. And in case you don’t get it – that’s for Social Security they will never collect. And the wage level of most of them puts them into the food stamp category. They not only wouldn’t owe income tax, they’d qualify for aid. Which they don’t dare apply for. Get your facts straight. Your racist bias is showing.
Mr.Bill, an illegal alien would owe more in fines for taking the illegal money they earned illegally working in this country,and as for the social security they pay on a stolen social security number ,that you claim they will never get back,give me a break 2 bucks a week does not amount to the cost of educating their children nor the cost of printing materialÂ in mexicanish so they can read it,if they can read period…My racist bias??Â excuse me but I think the last time I looked in the mirror I was blacked skinned..do some research on the name dude,before you act all crazy and name call. But that is typical of a liberal when they don’t have anything strong to stand on.. I have yet to meet an illegal mexican who made as much as I pay yearly in taxes..By the way are you aware those who do get around to scamming the IRS get monies back they never paid in, I think IRS said something like 27 billion last year went to illegal aliens,and the cost to senior citizens who’s social security numbers are used by illegal aliens is unbelievable .It takes years to get the S.S. checks started again after there has been an earnings action on that number,are you aware of that? There are elderly people who have died waiting to get their checks started again.There are elderly who have lost their homes..I have a personal connection to this issue and it took my Aunt, who retired at 76year of age , 3 years to convince the social security department she had not worked as a ironworker. They found the guy. Called himself Ruby also..swore that was his name
They do apply for food stamps and section 8 housing, the entire family of illegal aliens are grandfathered into the system through an anchor baby……Check with the supervisors of L.A. County, CA. or Orange County,CAÂ Â LA county spend over $300million a MONTH on their illegal alien population.. Section 8 housing,Food stamps,medicaid, welfare payments to illegal alien mothers who have an anchor baby and claim they don’t know where the father is..This total does not include the cost of education nor incarceration of the ones who commit other crimes once they cross the border..Yet CA is bankrupt??
Tinnin: I caught similar info on a Topix post about the LA Times reporting. Also link http://www.usillegalaliens.com/ really spells it out: about $500 billion a year as of 2008 and the death of 12 Americans, on average, each year.
I’ll pay an extra $.25 per head of lettuce to get rid of these people.
I would gladly pay $1.00 more for each head of lettuce,just to get the freeloaders gone.. BTW how many of you thinking citizens are all on welfare?? Well here is a bit of info for you in some states the welfare to work program is still on going,even though Obama cut funding..Most southern states have laws that prevent a person from getting welfare for more than 2 years of their life…….I will give you a free guess as to which states have NOT adopted those laws,here is a hint,those states would be called sanctuary states……
Mexican Growers now in hugh demand.
Election Year Medicaid Medicare Inducement issues left open for November not openly discussed.Politics have gone from heated to man on fire thoughts. Also the Judicial dilemmas, since all are offically allowed to bear arms again, the big city Mayors are concerned about how the poor will be able to rearm themselves, and are looking for some type of financial relief from Federal State Medicaid programs to maintain their status quo.The higher courts face tough issues this term since making honest fraud legal, there agenda now turns toward making honest kickbacks and honest bribes equally as legal. This topic remains high as a shared issue by the medicaid medicare enrollment providers since they are looking to expand inducements past the complicated pregnancy stage. No more coupons for free fried chickens now it will be free bags of medical use stuff only,sign here.
The DOJ has serious concerns that if legalized marijuana in California for medical reasons could be used as a inducement or inticement to help secure new enrollments for the Federal State Medicare Medicaid programs.The State of California is concerned that if the Feds step up their effort in killing off the marijuana crops it could cause higher tax problems that effect Medicaid currently under consideration by the State ‘marijuana tax control board’. Limo drivers cancel their planned Medicaid Cuts DC rally and leave for California to protect this years crop. Wow, don’t think I would like to be in Politics for this years elections.
Govenor Schwarzenegger indicated that if the Tea Partys membership keeps holding their rallies at our Marijuana burning fields they will have to be taxed for their free use of inhalants, prior to having them bused back to Arizona. Senator Mccain wants the deportation of illegal Mexicans to stop immediatley claims their State needs Pot growers and insists California return his illegal landscapers at once. This could lead to Pot Wars since California insists that have the best wine and the best weed and the better growers brought in directly from Mexico.(not Arizona)
