Harry Reid: illegal aliens “free loaders and scam artists”
From John Lollipop..
“Reid, now an impassioned champion of amnesty for 20 million illegal aliens in America, once called illegal aliens “free loaders and scam artists” which he proposed to deal with in his Immigration Stabilization Act in the United States Senate in 1993.” That proposed legislation was introduced to the floor of the US Senate with the following press release, in part, issued by Reid's office on August 5, 1993. "In response to increased terrorism and abuse of social programs by aliens, (I) today introduced the first and only comprehensive immigration reform bill in Congress. Currently, an alien living illegally in the United States often pays no taxes but receives unemployment, welfare, free medical care, and other federal benefits. Recent terrorist acts, including the World Trade Center bombing, have underscored the need to keep violent criminals out of the country."
CBS's 60 minutes actually did a decent report (FINALLY) last night on the dangers of our border. This line is telling:
"Terrorism and homeland security have been back in the news the past few weeks, and once again the focus has been on intelligence failures and airport security. But the easiest way for terrorists to get into the United States may well be across the nation's porous 2,000 mile border with Mexico. And it is no secret."
Well, it hasn't been a secret to most of us, has it?? About time CBS!

Big March In Phoenix Aimed At Removing Sheriff Joe ArpaioJan 8, 2010
[snips] Demonstrators from across the country are gearing up to assemble in Phoenix, Arizona next Saturday to demand that Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio be removed from office. Arpaio has remained the top foe of immigrants living in the US and they’re ready to step up their fight.
The Los Angeles-based organization, National Day Laborer Organizing Network (NDLON.org), is coordinating a mass march in downtown Phoenix and are calling for people who don’t live in Arizona to join them.
In a video produced by NDLON to promote the January 16 march, an activist speaks out against the hate against immigrants that has taken a hold of people in Arizona:
“Our country must not become Arizona, we must raise our voices. We must ensure that other states, counties and municipalities don’t continue to adopt the policies, the practices, and the extreme anti-immigrant sentiment that prevails in Arizona.”NOTE: Arpaio is following the LAW!!! The squatter support squad is well funded, we must speak up! ENFORCE the law!
Arizona has proven enforcement works!
A marked drop in Phoenix-area crime coincides with the recession and a drop in the number of illegal immigrants in Arizona.Phoenix has seen a 25 percent decline in the number of crimes during the first five months of 2009 compared to the same time period in 2007
Immigration, economy affecting number of births in Arizona

[snip]state’s Department of Health Services show a 7 percent drop in the number of infant births in the past year alone and a more than 10 percent drop over the past two years....
But the impact of the state’s anti-illegal-immigration efforts, particularly the nearly 2-year-old employer-sanctions law, cannot be ignored, he said....
So far this year, there have been 3,193 fewer births among Hispanics compared with 2008.
Terry Anderson tells it like it is on immigration!
