Agents find 62 illegal immigrants in home
EDINBURG, Texas
— Federal agents found 62 illegal immigrants in a two-bedroom house after receiving a tip about suspicious activity in a quiet neighborhood Tuesday.
Neighbors on both sides of the duplex where Border Patrol and Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents found the immigrants were shocked by the news.
“I was just looking around thinking ‘where would they all fit,'” said Cris Melaragno, who lives in another duplex next door. “I barely have room for me and my three kids.”
The undocumented immigrants hailed from a variety of Central American countries including Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua and Mexico, said ICE spokeswoman Adelina Pruneda.

John McCain Is A Big Fat Liar

And John Hawkins at Right Wing News absolutely has the goods on him. The money quote is:

So, with that in mind, imagine my chagrin when I saw these comments in the New York Times last night (emphasis mine).

He added: “I believe we have to secure our borders, and I think most Americans agree with that, because it’s a matter of national security. But we must enact comprehensive immigration reform. We must make it a top agenda item if we don’t do it before, and we probably won’t, a little straight talk, as of January 2009.”

Mr. McCain asked others on the panels for suggestions about how to “better mobilize American public opinion” behind the notion of comprehensive immigration reform.

Put very simply: John McCain is a liar. He’s a man without honor, without integrity, who could not have captured the Republican nomination had he run on making comprehensive immigration a top priority of his administration. Quite frankly, this is little different from George Bush, Sr. breaking his “Read my lips, no new taxes pledge,” except that Bush’s father was at least smart enough to wait until he got elected before letting all of his supporters know that he was lying to them.

And he’s going to destroy the Republican Party – which seems to be his whole purpose ever since George W. Bush cleaned his clock in 2000. Its all personal with him.

And he’s a big fat liar.

Democrats Sue To Stop Border Fence

Have I told you lately that I hate You?

Fourteen House Democrats, including eight committee chairmen, said yesterday that they will file a brief supporting a legal challenge to the Bush administration’s plans to finish building 470 miles of fencing and other barriers on the U.S.-Mexico border by the end of the year.

Homeland Security Committee Chairman Bennie G. Thompson (D-Miss.) led the group, which includes the heads of the energy and commerce, transportation, intelligence, education, rules, and veteran affairs panels.

Defenders of Wildlife and the Sierra Club asked the Supreme Court last month to review whether the administration’s decision to waive environmental laws to finish the fence is constitutional. That waiver was approved by the Republican-led Congress in 2005.

Do you believe this is really about environmental issues?

This is an outright and blatant push to overturn the legislative will of the vast majority of the American people – because these twits somehow think that this will get them the illegal immigrant vote.  That they think there IS an illegal immigrant vote also says a lot about their push to prevent people from having to provide identification at the polls.

At some point the American people will become fed up with this continual push to use the courts to overturn the express will of the people and their representatives.  Fourteen Democrat congressmen can sue and stop the government from fulfilling the wishes of the people?  They can tie this issue up in the courts for decades – and what do they care?  They don’t live next to the border with people running through their lands, stealing things, defecating on the ground and shooting at anyone who might interfere with them.  They live in nice gated communities with walls and alarm systems and peace and quiet.

Monitoring

Personally, I don’t think this is such a bad thing:

It turns out the feds have been monitoring Interstate 5 for nuclear “dirty bombs.” They do it with radiation detectors so sensitive it led to the following incident.

“Vehicle goes by at 70 miles per hour,” Giuliano told the crowd. “Agent is in the median, a good 80 feet away from the traffic. Signal went off and identified an isotope [in the passing car].”

The agent raced after the car, pulling it over not far from the monitoring spot (near the Bow-Edison exit, 18 miles south of Bellingham). The agent questioned the driver, then did a cursory search of the car, Giuliano said.

Did he find a nuke?

“Turned out to be a cat with cancer that had undergone a radiological treatment three days earlier,” Giuliano said.

Actually I’m amazed that the feds are actually doing anything.  Of course the weenies at the Seattle “Would invading my privacy in this way allow the feds to find my dope stash?” Times are wetting themselves at the thought that someone might actually be watching our borders for smuggled nuclear material.  Of course they then prove the point that monitoring might actually be good by this little nugget at the bottom of the article:

Giuliano says the point really is to catch terrorists. He says it’s true that the odds of catching one here may be “a billion to one. But despite that, we have caught two.” (Gazi Ibrahim Abu Mezer, who tried to sneak in at Blaine in 1997 to blow up the New York subway; and Millennium Bomber Ahmed Ressam, nabbed at Port Angeles in 1999.)

Don’t you just wonder what those two have in common besides trying to sneak into this country to kill people?  I wonder what kind of profile they might fit if we were to profile those who wanted to sneak into this country to commit mass murder?

And if they can find a cat who had a cancer treatment three days ago – just why can’t they find whole human beings who are crossing the southern border illegally?  The answer is that they could if they wanted to–they just don’t want to find those kind of people.
