Do you really want to know how bad it has now become?
After watching the devastation in the Southwestern State of Arizona, my home for the past 45 years, and suffering several economic losses due to illegal immigrant thefts, and finally losing my home during the mortgage crisis due to escalating costs of ownership of my home, which I found out I really didn’t "own" at all due to "use" rights now being sold as "ownership" rights in many developments now throughout the nation, I left my former home state a little over two years ago and have been on a petition campaign ever since addressing the border and property rights issues primarily.
I started my campaign at the federal level, but my federal senators – John McCain and John Kyl – unfortunately are funded by many of the Big Businesses in Arizona who are profiting from this situation, while their fellow citizens are dying, homeless or the victim of increasing property and drug related crimes.
My former Governor, our current Secretary of Homeland Security, also was deaf to the pleas of the citizenry during her six years in office, and as you can see, believes Americans somehow are more of a threat than foreigner terrorists, which is what is and has been occuring in her former home state for literally decades.
In fact, two of the 9/11 pilots according to the report actually lived and trained in Arizona before those attacks which, given the states most lived in, Arizona and Florida, could only be primarily because they could blend into the more diverse and higher new immigrant, legal or illegal, populations than Middle America.
Since the state legislatures are Constitutionally also to be representatives of the citizens and not industry, I then subsequently began a letter writing and petition campaign to several of the border state legislatures requesting their assistance also in pursuing a lawsuit against the federal government in order to get those borders secured.
Two years ago when I began this mission, the now escalating drug war deaths were primarily confined simply to rival gang members and their political accomplices in law enforcement on both sides of the border. Now as has been in the news it is involving the general citizenry at large.
I still have many friends and family members living there, and do believe if the 500 mile desert borders are not physically secured not only will the weaponry but also the means of transport for those drug cartel members utilized will increase and also their number, until the Southwest most likely once again will formally become a part of Mexico.
In continuing my campaign, last week I sent several emails to the members of the New Mexico legislature in addition to several other states.
It included information on Mexico’s Constitution and law with respect to illegal immigrants who commit criminal acts, an article with respect to a plea from the legislators in the State of Sonora to the Mayor of Tucson for more jobs for their citizens who were suffering economically due to the downturn in the now "global" economy rather than making such plea to their own government, and also my personal observations and knowledge as a 45 year border state resident with respect to the historic corruption within the Mexican government and police who actually are in collusion with the cartels on both sides of the border. Several stories of this side of the issue have been carried in the mainstream media these past several months surprisingly.
My pleas and request was primarily directed toward needed border security due to the increasing violence now in the border states, and security threat those continued open borders present, not the entire illegal immigrant situation, since that will also not be cured until those southern borders are secured, simply increase the number.
One legislator sent me a response, a Democratic legislator, who also happened to be a criminal defense attorney. Below is a copy of a few of the comments in the response received to my lawful petition and request for assistance:
"Did it ever occur to you that the United States Government migrated to Arizona … illegally? Just food for thought."
"I stand by my comment. The United States acquired (stole) what is now the State of Arizona as a result of a military invasion in 1948. Hello?"
"Please lady, God gave you a brain. Use it." (NOTE: This comment was in response when I pointed out that Arizona had been admitted as a state in 1912)
"Sorry for the confusion. I meant 1848. A 3rd grader would’ve have realized it was a typo." (1848 was the Mexican-American War, when Arizona was not a state but was a U.S. territory).
"Second, America actually stretches from the south of Chile to the tip of Alaska . All nations in between are part of “America” and all people living on north and south America are technically – Americans. Granted, some more ignorant than others."
He then finally states the usual manipulation, using the "kids" of the illegals (although never mentioning the American "kids" that have died at the hands of the illegals).
His next responsive letter, since I then copied others on the New Mexico legislature on this exchange due to both the tone and level of arrogance with the personal attacks contained within it, was addressed to "Ms. Goebbels," an allusion to my German heritage in essence then stating that my requests for border security in order to protect the lives of Americans living in the border states was somehow to this representative’s way of thinking an example of "Nazism."
I then noted that the Pope also had a fence around his country, to which he then "requested" he be "unsubscribed" from my email petition.
In other words, first engaging in personal attacks, and then in a blatant attempt to deny me my right of further petition as an affected citizen due to this federal AND state negligence.
And while I remained on topic with respect to the issue concerned, however, questioning his divided loyalties which were apparent in his definition of America "from south of Chile to the tip of Alaska," it was this representative and legislator then that turned around and then slammed my ancestry. And surprising most of all, his surname indicated he was a member of an immigrant group which has been quite vocal about being victims of unfair "profiling" in the border states which have been in the news recently.
By the way, my grandfather fought in World War I, and father enlisted in World War II even though as a chemist at the time working on a government grant had a valid deferral which exempted him from any mandatory active duty at the time World War II broke out.
It appears the Democrats are worse than the neocons in the Republican party at this point, if that is possible.
This representative also defends criminal illegals in this country, and it appeared clearly in continuing conversation that it was his own economy he was most concerned with, and the reduction in income and clients he would have if true border security measures and "common defense" for those living in the border states in the United States was Constitutionally provided.
This, apparently, is the "New" America.
