Mexico’s Constitution and their Harsh Immigration Laws

Posted by FactReal on November 19, 2012

Mexico’s long history of dealing with illegal immigrants in a much harsher manner than the United States. Don’t be fooled by Mexico’s immigration reforms.
Mexico is touting their latest reform to their immigration laws as a way to pressure the U.S. to open its border and pass an amnesty to benefit illegal immigrants living in the U.S. (nearly 60% are from Mexico).

For decades Mexico has been calling our immigration laws unjust and immoral, while their own Mexican immigration laws have been tougher than U.S. law as demonstrated by their 1917 Mexican Constitution which is the one that is still in force today despite the many amendments/reforms.

U.S. Border Patrol Agent Killed near Major Drug Corridor in Arizona, Other Injured (Video)

Posted by FactReal on October 2, 2012

Via AP video: FBI talks about Nicholas Ivie, a Border Patrol agent, who “was shot to death Tuesday near the U.S.-Mexico line. Ivie and a colleague were on patrol in the desert about 100 miles from Tucson, when shooting broke out shortly before 2 a.m., the Border Patrol said.”
Fox News reports:

Two U.S. Border Patrol agents were shot, one fatally, Tuesday morning in an area in south Arizona known as a major drug-smuggling corridor, authorities said.

Border Patrol identified the slain agent as 30-year-old Nicolas Ivie.

The shooting occurred at the Brian Terry Station near Naco, Ariz., which is just south of Tucson. The station was named after an agent who was killed in the line of duty in December 2010. The area is considered a remote part of the state and sources tell Fox News that the shooting occurred at 1:50 a.m. local time and about 8 miles from the border.

The agents who were shot were on patrol with a third agent, who was not harmed…

The shooting occurred after an alarm was triggered on one of the many sensors along the border and the three agents went to investigate, said Cochise County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Carol Capas.

Is Border Patrol Shooting Connected to Fast and Furious?

“U.S.-Mexico Border Safest Area in America,” says U.S. Customs and Border Director

Via CNSNews.com:

The U.S. side of the southwest border is home to “some of the safest communities in America,” Gene Garza, the director of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) in the Laredo, Texas field office, told lawmakers on Tuesday. […]

However, the U.S. Attorneys’ Annual Statistical Report for Fiscal Year 2011 paints a different picture, showing that 80 percent of all cases filed against criminal defendants in U.S. Magistrate Courts were filed in districts along the U.S.-Mexican border. […]

There were 71,387 cases filed in U.S. Magistrate Courts against criminal defendants between Oct. 1, 2010 and Sept. 20, 2011 (FY 2011), according to the Attorneys’ latest statistical report. Among those cases, 57,310 (80 percent) occurred along the southwest border.

Despite the U.S. Attorneys’ data, DHS Secretary Napolitano echoed Garza’s claims that the border communities are among the safest in the country, testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee on April 25: “Violent crime in U.S. border communities has also remained flat or fallen over the past decade, and statistics have shown that some of the safest communities in America are along the border.”

Do you feel any safer now?

ARIZONA SHOOTING: How the Left Falsely Accused Conservatives (videos)

Posted by FactReal on January 16, 2011

This past week, the Left (mainstream media and Democrats) decided to exploit the Tucson massacre to destroy those whom they hate and to advance their political agenda. They let lose the dogs of their own hellish madness to link Conservatives or the Tea Party to the violent act. Within hours of the shooting, there were reports indicating that the shooter might be insane. The Left decided to ignore the facts. They continued with their witch-hunt and pushed their narrative to re-write the facts. They blamed political rhetoric (of course, from the Right). More facts were being discovered indicating the shooter, Jared Loughner, was not a Tea Partier, but actually a registered independent, who didn’t vote in the crucial 2010 election, and who didn’t watch TV or listen to political radio. Friends claimed that Loughner was a liberal pothead influenced by the anti-religion, anti-Capitalist movie “The Zeitgeist”. There was no evidence that political rhetoric from the Right had contributed to the shooting. Liberals were not deterred – they were determined to obtain a political advantage out of the tragedy.

The Left saw an opportunity to further exploit the tragedy by attacking the First and Second Amendments. They re-directed the national discourse from repealing Obamacare and cutting government waste to gun control and censorship. Besides advancing their repressive agenda, liberals are trying to tacitly perpetuate the myth that the shooter was a right-wing extremist and not a demented person. On top of that, leftists are now pontificating about civility and bi-partisanship. These merchants of hate want Americans to forget their vitriolic past against Bush or against anyone who disagrees with them. They have no shame! They want to be our “Civility Police” and control our behavior and our speech. One question remains: How many people are going to fall for these tricks from the Left?

KGUN9 News (Hat tip: GatewayPundit):

Toward the end of the town hall meeting [being taped for an ABC-TV special] Saturday morning, one of the shooting victims, J. Eric Fuller, took exception to comments by two of the speakers: Ariz. state Rep. Terri Proud, a Dist. 26 Republican, and Tucson Tea Party spokesman Trent Humphries.

According to sheriff’s deputies at the scene, Fuller took a photo of Humphries and said, “You’re Dead.”

Deputies immediately escorted Fuller from the room.

Pima County Sheriff’s spokesman Jason Ogan said later Saturday that Fuller has been charged with threats and intimidation and he also will be charged with disorderly conduct.

Eric Fuller’s comments after the Tucson shooting:
Eric Fuller said in an interview with leftist Democracy NOW! (1/14/2011):

“It looks like Palin, Beck, Sharron Angle and the rest got their first target. Their wish for Second Amendment activism has been fulfilled — senseless hatred leading to murder, lunatic fringe anarchism, subscribed to by John Boehner, mainstream rebels with vengeance for all, even 9-year-old girls. There was a little girl named Christina Green, 9-years old, who is one of the deceased.”

Eric Fuller to leftist Media Matters: (1/14/2011)

“I would put Sarah Palin in first place there. I think, really, she should be incarcerated for treason for advocating assassinating public officials.”
