If there was ever a prime example of “in-your-face” – this is it!
This is a statement reportedly attributed to an illegal immigrant who went door to door, openly as an illegal, canvassing for votes in the Seattle area trying to get naturalized citizens to cast a ballot for Democratic Senator Patty Murray:
“In order for there to be a change to our broken immigration system,” she said, “I believe one has to fight.”
What? “OUR” broken immigration system?
News flash, Maria Gianni – this is not “YOUR” immigration system!
The organization “OneAmerica Votes” reportedly loaded up busses with about 150 volunteers (many of them illegal immigrants) and took them to nine cities across Washington this past week, where they knocked on 3,000 doors with the goal of helping Democrats gain ground in key races.

Okay, ICE, how about knocking on a few doors yourself?
There are thousands of people who wait patiently in line to become an American citizen, and when they get the opportunity, they follow the naturalization process that this rule-of-law nation has put in place. Maria Gianni has not waited her turn, but chose to enter OUR country illegally.
Is there room for one more illegal immigrant on the next deportation bus that ICE takes to Mexico?
We are slowly but surely losing parts of Arizona
An important article was published by The Washington Times on 10/16/10: Mexican Assassins Headed to Arizona, U.S. Warned.
From this article:
“The Homeland Security memo said a group of “15, very well equipped and armed sicarios complete with bullet proof vests” had been sent into the [Vekol] valley…
“The federal government has posted signs along Interstate 8 in the Vekol Valley warning travelers the area is unsafe because of drug and alien smugglers, and the local sheriff says Mexican drug cartels now control some parts of the state.”
We (our country, not Maria’s country) are currently losing more and more parts of Arizona to Mexicans while those persons who should be working towards finding a solution to this crisis are out politicking. And, these events that are taking place in southern Arizona right now are happening on this administration’s watch all the while our own government is in the process of actually suing Arizona for trying to defend her borders.
I believe that all citizens of the United States need to take the issue of illegal immigration very seriously when they cast their ballots in this mid-term election.
Is this issue of illegal immigration important to you?
Is the issue of illegal immigration important to the candidate that you are evaluating? If so, what measures would that candidate take to protect our southern border with Mexico, stop the drug trafficking that is endangering our country and its citizens, and ensure that the legal process for naturalization of citizens that our rule-of-law nation has in place is followed?
A question for the current administration: If our country is pledged to do what it can to protect the borders of Iraq and Afghanistan, how about doing the same for the United States of America by protecting and defending our southern border between the United States and Mexico?
In this writer’s opinion, a lawsuit against one of our own states just doesn’t cut it, Mr. President!
