Talk of amnesty is reportedly driving the numbers of illegal immigrants up.
Thousands of undocumented aliens pour over the border every day, unchecked and uncontrolled.
No criminal background checks.
No terrorist watch lists.
No screening for infectious diseases.
No checks for weapons.
No checks for narcotics or illegal drugs.
Who are these people?
No one knows.
On March 27th, 2010, Arizona rancher Rob Krentz was brutally murdered on his own property by an illegal alien.
Today, Phoenix is the kidnapping capital of the world.
Phoenix also suffers from large numbers of unsolved violent crimes.
Of 75,000 violent and property crimes in 2009, only 18% were 'cleared' (solved).
Of 8,732 violent crimes in '09, only 2,921 arrests were made.
Of the 522 rapes that year, only 72 arrests were made.
Less than half of the murders that year were cleared.
This is not an indictment of the police. This is an indictment of a federal open borders policy that endangers citizens.
An illegal who commits a crime, like Rob Krentz' murderer, can easily disappear back into Mexico.
You can't buy a bottle of beer in this country without showing ID. You can't even board a plane or a cruise ship without a passport or driver's license.
Someday soon, if it hasn't happened already, terrorists bent on destruction will enter the country through the swinging doors in the Southwest.
Millions of pounds of drugs pass through the porous border every year.
It's only a matter of time until chem-, bio- or radiological weapons make their way to our cities through similar means.
