Mexican Violence spilling over onto US soil? Is anyone wondering when the Immigration Reform is going to take place?

Human smuggling makes Phoenix kidnapping capital of U.S.
Phoenix has become the kidnapping capital of the United States, because of illegal immigration and human smuggling, according to the head of the Phoenix Law Enforcement Association.
In the past year, there were 359 kidnappings in Phoenix, and not one was legitimate involving a truly innocent victim, said Mark Spencer, head of the union which represents more than 2,500 Phoenix police officers. He said all the kidnappings were connected to illegal immigration and the numbers may represent just the tip of the iceberg.
The investigators up at the violent crimes bureau are estimating that this 359 represents just one-third of the reported kidnappings that take place in Phoenix," Spencer said. Violent crimes bureau has exceeded its overtime budget by as much as 300 percent in the past year dealing with illegal immigration.

  • Reforming Immigration is not going to solve the problem of people coming here illegally. They need to do something to stop people from entering illegally and deport those that are discovered to be here illegally. The law is the law, and it needs to be followed. I am tired of illegal immigrants qualifying for the same benefits as those who lived here their whole lives, worked and paid taxes. They should not automatically qualify for anything. If you want to come here, it through the proper channels, and do not abuse the system.

  • No, I am not wondering, I assume it will never take place. Why would it? It certainly won't happen with a**hole in office so I'l wait and see in 4 years.

  • Native born Americans who have lived here all their lives are not only losing their rights to property, undue taxes, and to protect themselves and their families, they are also losing total protection of their very lives. It's time our government put up a 10 foot electric fence with armed soldiers on our side to repel the illegal invaders. At thesame time we need to flush out all the illegals already here and send them back over the border. If they have kids, send the brats with them.

  • When Obama was recently on a Spanish-language station, he promised Immigration Reform very soon. But what HE means by Immigr. Reform will NOT stop the flood of illegals - it will be an amnesty bill - again. ... Yes, despite the fact that a large majority of Americans rose up against two recent proposals for amnesty, the Senate just keeps on pushing it. The House of Representatives doesn't, because they face elections every two years so they have to respond to citizens, but Senators only face elections every 6 years so they have time to maneuver things like getting in more Mexicans who'll vote for Democrats. "Vote?" you ask."How can an illegal immigrant vote?" Answer: why do you think they have moved to give them driver's licenses, and THEN to connect driver's licenses to registering to vote = they want Mexicans voting in order to drown out the increasingly cautious voting trends of American citizens. Immigrant reform - sure!

  • NObama supports a blanket amnesty, no reform. What we must do is seal our boarders, repeal the Anchor Baby Law, deport any illegal, stop giving them any benefits or rights, to start with. Well said waldorfmom!!!!!!

  • Allow land owners to police their own property instead of taking it from them when they do. I am sick of illegal immigration. Look at California the state is collapsing partly because of illegals partly because of the entitlement minded many are also illegals.

    What, we should break up families by keeping the children here and deporting their parents?


    Answer by Anonymous at 7:10 PM on Feb. 23, 2009

  • No, we shouldn't break up the families. They should take their children back with them. That's the point.
