    Arizona Rancher's Killing Sparks Calls to Beef Up Border Security

    Hey these Mexicans are just honest people who want to come here to work.

    And those are the words of G.W. Bush, who also wanted Amnesty. Bush wanted it to appease a sister in law.

    Obama and the Liberals want Amnesty and open Borders for new voters. But then with ACORN they have been registering illegal aliens to vote for a while already.

    Napolitano is and has been soft on all border issues for years and has no desire to enforce the laws, nor does Obama.

    The Minute men were lied about and harassed to the point they gave up. I guess until enough liberals are kidnapped or killed and beheaded by insurgent drug cartel members nothing is likely to be done either about the encroachment or the violence spilling into our Nation from what is quickly becoming a totally lawless Mexico.

    FOXNews.com - Arizona Rancher's Killing Sparks Calls to Beef Up Border Security

    FOXNews.com

    Three members of New Mexico's congressional delegation have asked for an increase in the Border Patrol's presence, and former Colorado Rep. Tom Tancredo called on Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano to dispatch the National Guard to the Arizona border.

    Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano is under pressure to beef up border security in the Southwest in the wake of Saturday's killing of a rancher in southeastern Arizona.

    Three members of New Mexico's congressional delegation have asked for an increase in the Border Patrol's presence in the Boot Heel of New Mexico, about 10 miles from where the rancher was shot to death over the weekend. U.S. Sens. Jeff Bingaman and Tom Udall, along with Rep. Harry Teague, say Napolitano's agency needs to take more security steps.

    And former Colorado Rep. Tom Tancredo, an outspoken opponent of illegal immigration, called on Napolitano to "reject politics and do the right thing" by dispatching the National Guard to the Arizona border.

    Cochise County Sheriff's Office deputies and detectives responded to an area northeast of Douglas on Saturday after searchers found the body of 58-year-old Robert Krentz inside his all terrain vehicle on his property. Detectives were able to determine that Krentz apparently came upon one person when he was fatally shot and his dog was wounded.

    This death may help push SB1070 which would make Arizona with some of the strictest immigration laws in the US. Senate leader says they have the votes and the Gov has said she will sign it if it reaches her desk. IMO, its overdue.

    "The Arizona House of Representatives is set to debate a Senate bill that calls for sweeping changes in state laws dealing with illegal immigration.

    SB 1070 has already passed the Senate and is scheduled to be debated by a House committee Wednesday morning. The bill would make it a state crime to be in Arizona if you are in the country illegally. It would also make it illegal to hire day laborers or transport anyone who is an illegal immigrant.

    Sadly, the Arizona will lose that fight. Arizona does not have the authority to make federal immigration violations a state crime. The governor is signing her political death warrant if she signs that bill.

    She and that law will be squashed by the Obama administration.

    I don't think so. Could be an interesting SC case state rights vs feds.
    If you read the AZ law it has nothing to do with legal immigrations. It has everything to do with being in AZ illegally. There are already Federal Laws that make it illegal to be in the US without permission.

    Isn't about time the Feds to their job and protect our borders? Why you so protective of the illegals?

    Arrest their illegal asses for trespassing and loitering and put them in the Arpaio tent camp.

    talk about spin.

    Suddenly a rancher gets killed and everyone on the right uses it as a rallying cry to beef up border security, kick out the mexicans and start a war basicly against Mexico...

    Only problem...

    Cochise County investigators said Monday that Krentz likely was killed by an illegal immigrant, but there's no evidence to suggest there was any confrontation that led to the shooting.
    In other words, they have no actual evidence what so ever that it was an illegal immigrant that did it. Based on what evidence.. I mean... they are not even sure themselves lol.

    Pathetic if you ask me. This investigation should be taken from the locals and handed to an independent organisation since it is clear that the locals are biased as hell when it comes to illegals.. I mean come on, pointing the finger at illegals is the easiest cop out ever since a large part of the fearmongering right would jump on the bandwagon out the bat without even a real investigation.

    This reminds me of the Madrid bombings.. the right going all out to blame ETA without any evidence and when there finally was evidence it showed it was not ETA. They also used the words "likely" btw.

    Damn. Beat me to it....

    I find this telling though:
    "U.S. Border Patrol spokesman Omar Candelaria told the The Arizona Daily Star that if Krentz's killing was tied to such border crime, it would be a first for the area, to his recollection."

    First of all. So is it only the people on the "right" asking for more security? I don't think so.

    Ok, maybe the news jumped the gun on "illegal", but someone went across the border without permission since they crossed at a non legal entry point. Makes it illegal.

    There are many of us who have been calling for better border security for years. Taking your statements and lets drop the killing of the rancher. Do you think it is ok to come into the US illegally?

    Ok, the killer may have been already in the US. The person was tracked to the border and crossed into Mexico. I'll grant you the news didn't state the tracks came into the US and back to Mexico. If in fact it turns out it was a US citizen that did the killing, it does not deflect from the need to control our borders and stop the influx of illegals and drug runners. If the person was a US citizen, that person entered Mexico illegally.

    The flow of illegals and drug runners is well documented in that part of Arizona. It is a problem that the locals have had for a long time. I also agree we need to crack down on those that hire illegals.

    http://www.foxnews.com/us/2010/03/30...izona-rancher/

    "Krentz radioed his brother Phil between 10:00 and 10:30 a.m. Saturday morning that he had encountered an illegal immigrant, and was supposed to meet Phil on the ranch at noon, according to sheriff's deputies. When Krentz didn't show up, the brother called police, and a search team was soon scouring the sprawling desert 15 miles north of the border, near Douglas, Ariz.

    At around 11 p.m., a state police helicopter found Krentz slumped over his ATV, the engine and lights still on. Nearby, his dog lay critically wounded, also hit by a bullet. The dog was put down Sunday morning and will be cremated, its ashes spread on the property along with Krentz's.

    Tracker dogs have now followed the tracks of the killer back into Mexico, some 15 miles south."
