Vincente Fox BS and Smackdown By Dennis Miller!
U.S. officials have criticized the high murder and kidnapping rates in Mexican border cities and the danger they pose to Americans. The U.S. ambassador recently advised U.S. citizens to exercise extreme caution when traveling in Mexico.
"There is work to be done on both sides. As we've always said, it's a shared responsibility," Fox said while traveling in Puerto Penasco, a tourist destination in the northern state border of Sonora that's referred to in Arizona as Rocky Point.
"I saw that crime rates in the United States increased 3.5 percent so far this year. So they have their own problems," Fox said. "And with numbers of homicides, it's better we don't speak about them, because, even though they show up on the front pages every day, there are many fewer here than there."[snip]
FIRST! SOME FACTS!U.S. Rep. Ted Poe, R-Humble, said the shooting [Houston cop this week] highlighted the need to tighten the borders and beef up enforcement of immigration laws.
"We know that 25 homicides a day are committed by people who are illegally in the country and this is one more," he said.Some highligts of the Hearing in Houston on immigration in August:
--A Jan. '06 a secret memo from Washington warned Border Patrol officers that they were targeted by assassins.
--25 homicides a day committed by illegals in the U.S.
--Last year, 42 Americans were kidnapped in Laredo, TX
--It takes a minimum of 2 yrs. for an illegal murderer to be deported.
--135,000 convicted illegals have been ordered deported but eight nations will not take them back.
--Foreigners (legal or illegal) who marry American women with kids from a previous marriage can take the ex-husband's kids to any country in the world via Mexico.
--Increased Patrol Presence DOES decrease crime by illegals.
--Mexican criminals have better resources than local law enforcement on the borders; e.g. money, grenades, assault weapons, body armor, etc.
Sheriff Jernigan of Del Rio asked: "How many city and Federal law enforcement officers must die before our government does something?"
Hey, folks. Nice to be back.
Tonight I want to talk to you about the elephant-sized piñata in the room, illegal immigration. Now I don't have anything against Mexican people, but for God's sakes, sign the guest book on the way in.
Come on. If you're going to knock off a nooner with a co-worker at a bad motel you have to scrawl your Hancock on the desk blotter. Of course, you should sign in at the border.
Protecting our borders is not a racist act, and anybody who tells you that it is, be they Mexico-American, American-Mexican, American-American or Mexican-Mexican, is quite simply full of it, full of it. Sit down, Alan.
We have to confront this problem right now, because the Rubicon Grande has obviously been crossed. I realized that when I heard there's now a copy of the national anthem sung completely in Spanish. Although, truth be told, I've kind of been doing it a little bit myself over the years. Because I don't know about you, but I always start the song off "Jose can you see?"
Now I place a lot of the blame on our two presidents. I don't like Fox. The president, not the network. Love the network. I love Roger Ailes. Love, love, love, love, love, love, but Vicente Fox always reminds me of Nile Wagner in his Zorro sketch.
And you know something? If he's proud of his country as he says he is, maybe he should try to honcho his economy out of the permanent state of siesta it's in so its people can stay home and make a buck or 60 trillion pesos, whatever today's conversion rate may be.
And while I truly admire President Bush, I just don't get him at all on illegal immigration. I sometimes think that his soft approach to his problem might possibly have something to do with the reflexive guilty he might feel about his patrician upbringing.
I believe as he made the long mosey from Yale to y'all, he found himself touched by people who don't take the gift of America for granted. Well, that's fine, sir. But you have to realize that right about now 80 percent of this country has reached the same point with illegal immigration that you did after Saddam Hussein lined his bird cage with that 17th U.N. resolution on Iraq. Enough is enough.
And so I present my Mexican/American lifeboat theory. It's quite simple. If you really want everybody coming here unchecked, just give up your seat in the boat. One illegal immigrant in, one proponent of illegal immigration out.
Hey, if you're going to talk the "come on up" talk, you've got to walk the "head down south" walk.Back to you, Holmes and Watson.
