    Headline should read: “Utah agrees with Arizona, Federal government should enforce current immigration laws so the State doesn’t have to do it for them”

    Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, announced on March 9, 2011, that it has obtained new documents from U.S. Customs and Border Protection detailing FY 2010 apprehension statistics for illegal alien smugglers and illegal aliens from countries considered to be a high threat to the United States because of their suspected ties to terrorism. According to Judicial Watch who used the (FOIA) Freedom of Information Act received a detail analysis from the US Customs and Border Protection Agency that 3 out 4 evaded being captured and illegally entered the United States.. The Tucson region US Border Patrol doesn’t see eye to eye with these statistics. The documents reveal that 463,382 illegal immigrants who tried to cross the border in fiscal year 2010 were captured by federal agents, including 8,905 smugglers. Only 3,027 of the smugglers were deemed “deportable.”

    The document reluctantly released by Agency also stated that over 59.000 other than Mexican were also detained, including 715 from Cuba, Iran (14), Syria (5) and Sudan (5), as well as Somalia (9), Afghanistan (9), Pakistan (37), Saudi Arabia (5) and Yemen (11). Tom Fitton, President of Judicial Watch addressed this report saying that at least three quarter of illegal aliens are not apprehended. In a Statement, he added” “We should not be surprised if terrorists take advantage of our porous borders in light of the Obama administration’s lax approach to border security,” said Fitton. “When you have an administration that pushes illegal alien amnesty, permits illegal alien sanctuary policies, and attacks States like Arizona for seeking to enforce the rule of law, it sends a signal to our enemies to cross the border illegally and to do their worst.”

    We must take into consideration this indifference and neglect cannot be attributed to just President Obama administration and his Homeland Security Czars; decades of complete dereliction of duty by many previous administration, even before the 1986 Simpson/Mazzoli bill of volume amnesty. For those avid researchers of truth, go to Judicial Watch and study court actions taken against the Obama administration: New Docs: Obama Justice Department Colluded with ACLU to Attack Arizona’s SB 1070 – April 2011, JW Defends E-Verify Law in U.S. Supreme Court Lawsuit – January 2011JW Sues Homeland Security for Documents on Illegal Alien Who Killed Virginia Nun – February 2011Is the ACLU Dictating Obama’s Illegal Immigration Agenda? – December 2010 JW Probes Obama Stealth Amnesty Scheme for Potentially Millions of Illegal Aliens – November 2010

    Press reports thrust the issue of suspected terrorists crossing the border into the spotlight in May 2010 when the Department of Homeland Security issued an alert to authorities in Texas to be on the lookout for a member of the Somali-based terrorist group Al Shabaab, who was suspected of hatching a plot to cross into the U.S. through Mexico. The warning followed an indictment unsealed earlier that month in a Texas federal court accusing a Texas Somali man of running a “large-scale smuggling enterprise” charged with bringing hundreds of Somalis across the Mexican border. Many of these illegal aliens were suspected of having ties to terrorist organizations. However, until now, the Obama administration offered little information regarding the overall scope of this growing national security problem.

    With the border fence uncompleted and not as originally designed as a double layer fence (2006 Secure Fence Act) topped with concertina razor wire. A Rumor no more that the 1200 National Guard may be departing from this duty, whom have supplementing the US Border agents in June. God help the ranchers and families living along this dangerous border. That there is a wide consensus amongst the majority of Americans, that we need the E-Verify business system to detect illegal workers mandatory across this nation, to include the 287 (g), Secure Communities policing law to identify foreign nationals.

    The Tea Party and other pro-sovereignty organization that includes NumbersUSA, Judicial Watch are your shield against corruption in Washington and collusion with pro-open border lobbyists to enact another mass Amnesty of any form, including the Dream Act, Sanctuary Cities and States. There are tools to freely use on NumbersUSA to fax your federal and State leaders and understand the astronomical expenditures to support the illegal alien invasion.

    The Tucson sector Border Patrol union local 2544 stated on the number of illegal aliens in our nation: “There are currently 15 to 20 million illegal aliens in this country by many estimates, but the real numbers could be much higher and the numbers increase every day because our borders are not secure (no matter what the politicians tell you – don’t believe them for a second)”. (Visit the local’s website). Arizona started the ball rolling because they could no longer afford the burgeoning weight of free support programs for the illegal aliens amongst the tax paying public. Indiana and many other States are pushing bills to stop the encroachment of further movement of illegal immigration in their State.The BLUE PAGES in your phone directory for your Representatives are easily accessible. The American public must decide for themselves if they want honest law abiding immigrants in their communities, or overrun with economic illegal aliens. These people are leaving States where the “Rule of Law” is adamantly imposed and now heading quietly for California (already overrun) Nevada and appearing in Utah, Colorado and any non-restrictive State.
