If people cared half as much about border security as they do about Paris Hilton’s adventures in and out of the jail house, there would be no border security problem.

There must be an election coming up

The Coward Republican Party is starting to issue the empty platitudes about needing to secure the border.

It’s (not) Miller Time - Updated

by @ Monday, September 4th, 2006. Filed under Immigration

I have to admit that I like good beer, which is probably why I don’t drink the toilet water “beverages” known as Miller, Miller Lite, or Miller Genuine Draft. Michelle Malkin has given me another reason not to drink this barely-filtered yak piss.
I’ll stick with Saint Arnold, thankyouverymuch.
Update:
Miller spins and spins, but I’m not [...]

Aboooooouuuutt FACE!

Last month, The U.S. Senate voted to deny funding to build a 350-mile fence along the U.S./Mexico border.  Yesterday, in an abrupt reversal, the Senate voted to approve funding for the fence.
Could it be that our elected criminals officials are finally getting the message that the citizens want border security?  One can only hope.

Senate votes for border fence, votes against funding

by @ Wednesday, July 19th, 2006. Filed under Immigration

Four months ago, in a move that surprised everyone, the Senate voted to build a fence along the U.S./Mexico border in an apparent effort to stem the tide of illegal immigration into the U.S.
Last week, in a move that surprised absolutely no one, that same Senate voted 71-29 to deny funding for the construction of [...]

One month to the day….

On May 9th, I sent a letter to El Presidente and to both my senators about the open border situation.
Today, I got a reply from Senator Cornyn’s office. As promised, I’m posting the reply here.
Dear Mr. Billings:
Thank you for contacting me about immigration reform. The need to fix our broken system is clear, and [...]

You blew it.  About the only thing I didn’t hear tonight was El Presidente trying to redefine the word “is”.

Open Letter

by @ Tuesday, May 9th, 2006. Filed under Immigration, Pissed Off Rants

I pay close attention to current events happening in the United States, and I must shake my head in dismay at what I see.
