    Why the sudden concern and shock?

    Did you know that 25,000 people, most of them Mexicans, have already been killed in this war?

    Were you just not paying attention?
    I dont really care about mexican causalties on their side of the border. What I do care about is US citizens, even those as detestable as Sheriff Joe, being threatened from across their border.

    I think her point was that this isn't anything new or unheard of. If I had to guess the reason why we are talking about this story is because Sheriff Joe is a well known person to most of us. But I do agree that if the Cartel comes here to the U.S. and kills an American we should do something back.

    The problem is that Sheriff Joe isn't an isolated incident. This **** has been happening for years.

    The Cartels have already carried out executions in the U.S.

    But, I suppose it's nice that Sheriff Joe's name value means that people are finally paying attention. After all, if it's some no-name prosecutor from Nogales, that hardly holds the same cachet.

    God, you all are such drama queens. The enemy of Arizona is stupidity, lack of common sense, and the inability to sit down at a table the discuss solutions with people who have different ideas until - combined - a solution is provided.

    Deportations are up under Obama: Illegal immigrant deportations up under Obama | obama, illegal, data - News - The Orange County Register

    There are more border agents on the ground under Obama: PolitiFact | U.S. has more border patrol agents on the border with Mexico than ever, but debate goes on

    And he's trying to get more there: TriValley Central

    Has he solved the problem? No. But neither has everyone's crazy favorite governor. SB1070 is nothing but a band-aid that is driving illegal AND legal immigrants out of the state (into other states) and is already starting to have negative economic impacts. The (unintended?) flipside of SB1070 :: WRAL.com Sure, illegals cost money - but what some people forgot, is that they spend money, too.

    NOW - I'll let you all get back to the actual point of the thread.

    You really don't get any of this.

    It's simply about trying to stop the flow of illegals into the country. I realize this is intended to be a valuable Democratic voting bloc once that amnesty kicks in, but you aren't getting them in the voting booths without a fight, compadre.

    OK, I see hysterics and some crusade I obviously wasn't aware of is what I have walked into. Have fun with that.

    Yeah........ right.........

    With Congress gridlocked on an immigration bill, the Obama administration is considering using a back door to stop deporting many illegal immigrants - what a draft government memo said could be "a non-legislative version of amnesty."

    The memo, addressed to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Director Alejandro Mayorkas and written by four agency staffers, lists tools it says the administration has to "reduce the threat of removal" for many illegal immigrants who have run afoul of immigration authorities.

    "In the absence of comprehensive immigration reform, USCIS can extend benefits and/or protections to many individuals and groups by issuing new guidance and regulations, exercising discretion with regard to parole-in-place, deferred action and the issuance of Notices to Appear," the staffers wrote in the memo, which was obtained by Sen. Charles E. Grassley, Iowa Republican.

    Memo outlines backdoor 'amnesty' plan - Washington Times

    YES - Obama wants to pass a comprehensive bill that stiffens up the border AND creates a program for those here illegally to eventually convert to legal status. You can disagree with that - but I'm just absolutely freaking sick and tired of people who ignore FACTS.

    The links I provided are FACTS. Deportations are up; there are more border troops on the ground, and Obama has requested more. You can disagree with his eventual ideas for immigration reform but it does NOT make the above statements untrue.

    God, every attempt to come back to this God-forsaken place gets worse and worse.

    So next time you type Ann Coulter is a woman, my response: yeah.... right....

    Because that's probably harder to prove as fact that what I presented to you.

    We have better assassination squads than the drug cartels do. Let prove it by sending them into Mexico.

    The main stream media hardly reports stories like these and if they do they only get a token mention.The media generally ignores stories like these seeing how such stories show the dire need for border security.Which is something every pro-illegal in office and the media is against. The media is responsible for the public's lack of awareness of what goes on in border states and towns. That's why the sudden concern.


    I do share jallman's sentiment that if it happens in Mexico who gives a rats ass, its when it happens here that it should be a big deal.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
