    by John HillStand With ArizonaMore than 50,000 Americans have been killed by illegal aliens since 9/11.Think about that. More than 6,000 U.S. troops have been killed in Iraq and Afghanistan since that same date. But nearly ten times that number have been killed right here at home as a consequence of the Federal government's failure to secure our borders and protect its citizens, in direct violation of the Constitution's Article IV Section 4: The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application...

    As Alabama is besieged on all sides by lawsuits from the Dept. of Justice, ACLU and Mexican Government, their new H.B. 56 immigration law is having big results. Marshall County, AL sheriff's deputies arrested Juan Vargas, 28, of Huntsville, on a warrant for 1st degree sexual assault of a child under the age of 12, according to Sheriff Scott Walls. When deputies checked on Vargas' immigration status, it was learned that he is in the United States illegally from his native country of Guatemala. Busted is just one in a long line of illegal alien child rapists tormenting America. VIDEO...

Well now thet we are back to an open format, it's time to "tone" it back up - and express the outrage that the American People feel about the Federal Government's total failure to defend our borders and deal with illegal aliens.</p>
  • U.S. Appeals Court Delays Parts of Alabama's Immigration Law (HB56)

    The 11th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals in Atlanta this afternoon blocked enforcement of two sections of Alabama's immigration enforcement law, H.B. 56. But it also let two parts stand including the main provision based on Arizona's S.B. 1070. The provisions are blocked until the Court hears arguments from the DOJ at a November 29th hearing, as to why they assert the law should be blocked permanently. It is a mixed bag, to be sure, and Alabamans are getting rightly sick and tired of meddling by the same Federal government which refuses to enforce its own laws against illegal aliens....

    The Obama Admin. shows once again who its REAL constituents are: ILLEGAL ALIENS. The Department of Justice, which is appealing Alabama's outstanding new law, has set up a "hotline" number for illegals to report "civil rights" incidents under the new law. Opponents of Alabama’s new immigration law can now call the Justice Department directly to make complaints about the state’s effort to crack down on illegal immigrants. The Justice Department has set up a hotline and email for the public “to report potential civil rights concerns related to the impact of Alabama’s immigration law.” Clearly the DOJ is trying emotional...

But there is one issue that people across the political spectrum agree on: they oppose giving in-state tuition to illegal aliens.

An even stronger 74% of Independents oppose it. But the same position resonates across ideological and ethnic lines too. 58% of Democrats oppose it too, as do...

    by John HillStand With Arizona It is hard to overstate the stunning embrace of lawlessness represented by three bills signed by California Governor Jerry Brown this past weekend. Brown on Saturday signed three bills that directly champion illegal aliens. Together, they put the state so far on the side of illegals (and against legal taxpayers), that California now has no legitimate rival for the title of "The Sanctuary State", and should consider changing their official motto accordingly. Facing a midnight deadline for sign several controversial bills, Brown avoided a public signing ceremony for these unpopular bills. He waited until the...

Brown's office declined comment, and an announcement on the legislation has not yet been made. But Assemblyman Gil Cedillo (D-Los Angeles) said he was notified Saturday morning by the governor's aides that Brown has approved the measure, which makes illegal immigrants who are accepted into state universities eligible, starting in 2013, for Cal-Grant assistance.

    Maricopa County, AZ Sheriff Joe Arpaio today launched his 20th "Crime Supression Sweep", as his Posse members flooded the streets of southwest Phoenix. The area has seen a big spike in illegal alien-driven crime, including the killing of a police officer, and the kidnapping of a female business owner by Mexican drug smugglers. And the Sweep has already reaped dividends: The sweep began around 2:30 p.m. Thursday and during the first few hours of the operation, deputies made 18 arrests, of which 11 are suspected illegal aliens. Some of the charges that suspects have been arrested for include possession and...

On June 27th, Judge Thomas Thrash granted a request by the ACLU, the Mexican Government, and others, to block parts of the law that penalize people who knowingly and willingly transport or harbor illegal immigrants while committing another crime. He also blocked provisions that authorize officers to verify the immigration status of someone who can't provide proper identification.
