While Innocent Americans Murdered in Mexico, Obama Works on Amnesty!
By John W. Lillpop
Although no one in the Obama Administration seems to give a damn, the nation of Mexico continues to decay further and further into anarchy, a tragedy which recently resulted in the murder of innocent Americans affiliated with the U.S. Consulate in this god-forsaken, third-world, failed state. (1)
As murder and mayhem rage out of control in Mexico, the likelihood that the carnage will spill over onto America soil increases with each passing day. In fact, incursions across the US border by Mexican military forces have already been reported and are a chilling reminder of why our borders must be secured and fortified militarily. (2)
And what are the president of the United States and the US Congress doing while Mexico wages war on our sovereign state?
Incredibly enough, our dithering president and his Democrat colleagues in Congress are too busy working on plans to grant amnesty to the 20 million or so invading criminals from Mexico and points south, to concern themselves with defending the homeland.
Moreover, misguided yokels like Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano prefer to think of illegal aliens as “newly arrived refuges” rather than criminals who have deliberately violated US borders and immigration laws.
In their mindless mania to grow the Democrat Party at any cost, Obama and the Democrats have overlooked a vital fact about illegal aliens currently in America: Namely, should hostilities break out between the US and Mexico over Mexico’s inability to control its drug crimes, the loyalties of most illegal aliens will be with Mexico.
The notion that Mexican peasants come to America in pursuit of liberty and freedom and to join the American “family” is too ludicrous to stand.
Mexicans come to America illegally because our politicians are stupid enough to reward them with free health care, education, employment, food, housing, and, in the most extreme cases, protection from federal immigration authorities.
Most invaders have little or no interest in American values, or in “assimilating” into mainstream America, a fact borne out by their universal refusal to learn English.
Granting amnesty to illegal aliens will only serve to encourage another 40 million or so to violate our borders and laws.
If our president and Congress had any commitment whatsoever to the preservation of American culture and to protecting the American people from harm, the administration would be working to deport invading interlopers back to Mexico.
In addition, the Obama administration should seal off the Mexican border with armed forces to protect American interests against drug lords and the corrupt Mexican government.
Do it for the children, Mr. President!
(1) Mexico Gunmen Kill American Consulate Staff
“CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico (Reuters) – Gunmen in the drug war-plagued Mexican city of Ciudad Juarez killed two Americans and a Mexican linked to the local U.S. consulate, an attack U.S. President Barack Obama said "outraged" him.
“An American woman working at the consulate in Ciudad Juarez, just over the border from El Paso, Texas, and her U.S. husband were fatally shot by suspected drug gang hit men in broad daylight on Saturday as they left a consulate social event, U.S. and Mexican officials told Reuters.
“A Mexican man married to another consulate employee was killed around the same time in another part of the city after he and his wife left the same event, a U.S. official said.
“The U.S. official, who asked not to be identified, said it was not clear if the victims had been specifically targeted, and the motive for the attacks was unknown.
“Bloodshed has exploded in recent months in Ciudad Juarez as the head of the Juarez cartel, Vicente Carrillo Fuentes, fights off a bloody offensive by Mexico's No. 1 fugitive drug lord, Joaquin "Shorty" Guzman, at the worst hotspot of Mexico's three-year-old drug war.
"The president is deeply saddened and outraged by the news," said White House National Security Council spokesman Mike Hammer. He said Obama ‘shares in the outrage of the Mexican people at the murders of thousands in Ciudad Juarez and elsewhere in Mexico.’
“The U.S. State Department updated its warning on travel to Mexico to say it had authorized the departure of dependents of U.S. government personnel from consulates in Ciudad Juarez and five other northern border cities.”
“Nearly 19,000 people have been killed since President Felipe Calderon came to power in Mexico in late 2006 and launched a military assault on the country's powerful drug cartels, sparking a urge in violence that has alarmed Washington, foreign investors and tourists.”
(2) Mexican Helicopter over Texas
“BROWNSVILLE — The Zapata County sheriff Thursday was questioning why a Mexican military helicopter was hovering over homes on the Texas side of the Rio Grande.
“It was one of the more jarring incidents of the fourth week of border tensions sparked by drug killings — and rumors of drug killings — in the Mexican state of Tamaulipas.
“Sheriff Sigifredo Gonzalez said he'd reviewed photos of the chopper flown by armed personnel Tuesday over a residential area known as Falcon Heights-Falcon Village near the binational Falcon Lake, just south of the Starr-Zapata county line. He said the helicopter appeared to have the insignia of the Mexican navy.
“It's always been said that the Mexican military does in fact ... that there have been incursions,” Gonzalez said. “But this is not New Mexico or Arizona. Here we've got a river, there's a boundary line. And then of course having Falcon Lake, Falcon Dam, it's a lot wider. It's not just a trickle of a river, it's an actual dam. You know where the boundary's at.”
“The sighting came amid ongoing fighting between the Gulf Cartel and its former enforcers, Los Zetas. The mounting death toll and crisis of fear in cities opposite the Texas border have drawn global attention, as has a news blackout in affected cities with the kidnappings of eight Mexican journalists, at least one of whom was killed.
“As violence continued Thursday with a highway shootout in the state of Tamaulipas, a Senate subcommittee in Washington heard testimony that drug cartels are trying to infiltrate U.S. agencies along the border, with corruption cases among Homeland Security personnel on the rise.
“In the past two years, there have been 400 public corruption cases involving federal, state and local law enforcement agents originating from the Southwest border region, Kevin Perkins, FBI assistant director for criminal investigations, told the Senate Homeland Security subcommittee on preparedness.
“In addition to the highway battle, news from Tamaulipas on Thursday included a 25-year-old man found dead on a roadside in Miguel Alemán. On Wednesday, three people died in two gunbattles in Reynosa.
“Four other deaths have been reported since Saturday in the cities of Mier, Camargo and Miguel Alemán.
“The Mexican government's role in combating the violence remained unclear. The army presence in some cities appeared sporadic, and the navy has led operations including the December takeout of kingpin Arturo Beltran Leyva in Mexico City.
“Gonzalez, the Zapata sheriff, said he couldn't confirm reports that the helicopter was scoping the home of a drug criminal. He said the incursion about a mile over the border occurred over a neighborhood populated by many U.S. Customs officers who work at area border crossings — and they knew what they were seeing.
“My understanding is the U.S. military were informed,” he said. “I don't know what action was taken, if any.”
