ATTENTION MEXICANS! THE ARIZONA BORDER IS NOW OPEN FOR BUSI

Do you remember those "Minutemen" along the Arizona border? Apparently those volunteers have embarrassed the U.S. Border Patrol. According to a story in this morning's Washington Times the Border Patrol has ordered agents along the very same section of the border that was patrolled last month by Minutemen to go easy on apprehending and arresting illegals coming into this country. Why? Evidently it is hoped that if there are few arrests along this section of the border it will prove somehow that the Minutemen were not effective.

Here's how it works. When the Minutemen were patrolling the Arizona border the numbers of arrests of illegals went down. The Border Patrol was anxious to come up with some explanation for the reduction in arrests ... some explanation that discounted the efforts of the Minutemen. Officials came up with some **** and bull story about the Mexican military being deployed south of the border and the effectiveness of some new U.S. program called the Arizona Border Control Initiative. All of this would be exposed for the BS that it is if the number of arrests suddenly went up as soon as the Minutemen left.

The Border Patrol is part of the executive branch of the U.S. government. George Bush is the boss. Ultimately the president calls the shots at the Border Patrol. Is this just another indication of Bush's weak stance on illegal immigration? The answer would be "yes."

So now we're going to allow more illegal aliens to invade this country because we're worried that some civilian volunteers might make the government look bad. Civilian volunteers can almost always be counted on to make the government look bad. Civilian volunteers aren't shackled by the dictates of political correctness, and civilian volunteers don't particularly care what the leaders of foreign countries, who don't have our best interest at heart anyway, have to say about any particular policy issue. This type of political correctness is going to come at a terrible price. Illegals that break the law and sneak across the border often commit crimes. These are crimes that will have victims. Those victims will pay for the decisions made by bureaucrats who don't want to control the border.

The Minutemen never would have showed up if the United States government was doing its job to police the border and keep out illegal aliens. How on Earth can we ever be expected to secure this country when potential terrorists can just stroll right across into the U.S.?

At this rate, the border will never be secure ... at least not until the people of this country make certain that their politicians know that this is what they not only want, but insist on

FBI drug sting nabs soldiers, law enforcement

TUCSON, Arizona (AP) -- Pretending to be cocaine traffickers, undercover FBI agents in Arizona snared 16 current and former law enforcement officers and U.S. soldiers who accepted more than $222,000 in bribes to help move the drugs past checkpoints, the government said Thursday.

Those charged include a former Immigration and Naturalization Service inspector, a former Army sergeant, a former federal prison guard, seven members of the Arizona Army National Guard, five members of the Arizona Department of Corrections and a police officer, officials said.

Hillman said the defendants drove cocaine shipments past checkpoints manned by the government while they wore official uniforms, carried identification and used official vehicles.

"Many individuals charged were sworn personnel having the task of protecting society and securing America's borders," Monroe said. "The importance of these tasks cannot be overstated and we cannot tolerate, nor can the American people afford, this type of corruption.


Did the "Minutemen" Catch any of these guys?

Maybe not, or maybe so since we don't know who

Hillman and Monroe said the FBI was tipped about an individual and set up the fake trafficking organization in December 2001.

did the tipping do we? More probably someone in the service disgusted by but too worried about his job to be identified because his boss was in on it.

But it could have been a citizen, even one of those Minutemen, who saw something go down and tipped the FBI off.
