Obama Administration Ends High-Tech Border Fence is reporting the Obama administration officially has ended a high-tech southern border fence boondoggle that cost taxpayers about $1 billion.

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano says proven technology will be used in the future.  She says technology will be tailored to local terrain and population density.

Napolitano said Friday there is no "one-size-fits-all" solution to the country's border security needs.

Congress ordered the high-tech fence in 2006 amid a clamor for more border security.  The project yielded only 53 miles of protection.
Illegals Cost Taxpayers $113 Billion A Year
John Lillpop says Obama dumped a real dilly on Congress for Valentine’s Day.  That being a $3.73 trillion dollar budget that actually increases the deficit in 2012, but which attacks the problem with tax increases later on.

Tax increases?  During a recession?

While Obama foolishly proposes to tax America to ruin, Republican gladiators in the U.S. House, led by the ever-weepy John Boehner, scramble frantically to find 35-60 billion dollars to fulfill campaign pledges to cut spending.

Given the chaotic state of the nation’s finances, one would think one of the newly ordained TEA Party warriors would take note of the fact that America shells out more than $100 billion per year (after taxes) to support illegal aliens.

Invading criminals who should not even be here cost American taxpayers more than $100 billion a year.

Details concerning this outrage can be found here, which is summarized, in part, herewith:

"(Washington, D.C July 6, 2010) A new study released today by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) estimates that illegal immigration now costs federal and local taxpayers $113 billion a year.  The report, The Fiscal Burden of Illegal Immigration on U.S. Taxpayers, is the most comprehensive analysis of how much the estimated 13 million illegal aliens and their U.S.-born children cost federal, state and local governments.

The cost estimates are based on an extensive analysis of federal, state and local spending data.  The Fiscal Burden of Illegal Immigration on U.S. Taxpayers examines dozens of government programs that are available to illegal aliens and their U.S.-born children, both legally and fraudulently.  The report provides detailed analysis of the impact of illegal immigration on education, health care, law enforcement and justice, public assistance, and other government programs.

The report also accounts for taxes paid by illegal aliens about $13 billion a year, resulting in a net cost to taxpayers of about $100 billion.  However, the study notes that government at all levels would likely have realized significantly greater revenues if jobs held by illegal aliens had been filled by legal U.S. residents instead."

This grim news is made all of the more gloomy by a report, which documents the fact that illegal aliens cost taxpayers $600 million a year in Los Angeles County alone.

How in the world can any elected official who claims to be interested in fiscal responsibility blatantly ignore the savings that could be realized by enforcing existing laws and deporting illegal aliens?
Obama Derelict In Immigration Duty is reporting that a House panel was told on Tuesday that the U.S. government's failure to enforce federal immigration law amounts to a "dereliction of duties" by Barack Obama.

"President Obama’s failure to enforce federal immigration laws raises the question of whether we are a nation of laws or a nation without the courage of its convictions," Carol Swain said in her opening remarks.  "This dereliction of duties places our citizens at risk, and it damages our national sovereignty and standing in the world."

The hearing before the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration Policy and Enforcement focused on the impact of illegal immigration on American workers and unemployment in the United States.

"The failure to enforce immigration laws means that American citizens are unprotected from a massive influx of people of foreign-born persons who have entered the country without authorization and have openly stolen jobs, goods, and opportunities from law-abiding American citizens," said Swain, political science and law professor at Vanderbilt University.
Mexico's Two Presidents
Mexican President Calderon yesterday is joined by the alternate Mexican President, Barack Obama, in calling for "comprehensive" immigration reform, a term used to describe granting amnesty and legal status to illegal aliens in the United States.

Obama desperately needs those 20,000,000 million future Democrats to secure his 2012 election.

MY favorite part of Obama's speech is his absurd comment, "...continues to secure out borders."

Yo, Obama, there is nothing "secure" about the Mexican-American border, and you know it.
663 Illegal Aliens From Terror Countries Arrested At Mexican Border In 2010 is reporting that Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), speaking at a conference on border issues Thursday, said 663 individuals arrested along the southwest border in 2010 were from countries designated as "special interest" or from countries known to have ties with terrorism.

"It’s not just that we’re seeing immigration across our southern border from countries like Mexico -- people seeking to work and provide for their families," said Cornyn, a member of the Senate Judiciary subcommittee on homeland security and terrorism.  "Indeed in the last year alone -- where 445,000 individuals were detained at the southwest border -- 59,000 came from countries other than Mexico.

"These included 663 individuals from special-interest countries like Afghanistan, Libya, Pakistan, Somalia, and Yemen and four countries that have been designated by the U.S. Department of State as state-sponsors of terror -- Cuba, Iran, Syria, and Sudan," Cornyn said.

Special interest countries are those whose citizens are subject to enhanced screening by the Transportation Security Administration on U.S.-bound flights as a result of the attempted Christmas Day bombing of Northwest Flight 253.

The U.S. Border Patrol, which falls under the Homeland Security Department, is charged with apprehending aliens attempting to illegally cross U.S. borders.  As previously reported, in fiscal year 2010, around 84 percent of the approximately 448,000 illegal aliens arrested by the U.S. Border Patrol were not prosecuted.

After delivering his remarks at the 15th annual U.S.-Mexico Congressional Border Issues Conference, Sen. Cornyn told reporters he asked the Director of National Intelligence whether the apprehension of the 663 individuals was national security vulnerability.  "He said yes it was, so we need to do more," Cornyn said.

What the Obama administration is doing to secure the border more is "obviously not enough," he added.
Obama Excludes Border Governors From Immigration Meeting
Conn Carroll says New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg was there.  So was Al Sharpton and AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka.  Not on the invitation list?  Any active governor from any border state.  Which is odd since the meeting held yesterday at the White House was titled: President’s Meeting with Stakeholders on Fixing the Broken Immigration System.

Are the active governors of our nation’s border states not "stakeholders" in our "broken immigration system"?  Not for this White House.  From day one, the Obama administration has sought to undermine state law enforcement cooperation and authority over illegal immigration.  Within months of taking office, the Department of Homeland Security weakened the 287(g) program that President Bill Clinton created in 1996 to increase cooperation on border enforcement between federal and local law enforcement.  Since then the Department of Justice has gone to war with Arizona over their law enforcement efforts instead of working with them.

Obama did invite a number of mayors to his illegal immigration meeting, many of whom, like Bloomberg, preside over sanctuary cities.  While states that have stepped up enforcement, like Arizona, have seen dramatic decreases in their illegal immigration problem, sanctuary cities continue to serve as a magnet for more illegal entries.  Tuesday’s invite list shows which policy outcome Obama prefers.
The Amnesty Bandwagon Rides Again
Michelle Malkin says The public relations campaign for Obama's latest revival of "immigration reform" makes one thing crystal clear: This is not, and never has been, about homeland security.  This is not, and never has been, about economic security.  It's about political security, plain and cynical.

In conjunction with Tuesday's renewed White House push in Texas for a "new pathway to citizenship" for millions of illegal immigrants, disgruntled Latino activists are ratcheting up their radical anti-enforcement rhetoric.  Illinois Democratic Rep. Luis Gutierrez -- a persistent critic on Obama's left flank -- lambasted federal workplace enforcement raids this weekend.  On Sunday, he repeated his hyperbolic attacks on Homeland Security agents "terrorizing" neighborhoods and ripping babies from the breasts of nursing moms.  Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano made no public effort to defend her employees.

On campuses across the country, unhappy ethnic college student groups have turned up the heat on Democrats to resurrect the "DREAM Act" nightmare for the 12th time in a decade.  The legislation -- persistently rejected by a bipartisan majority on Capitol Hill -- would provide illegal aliens (not just teenagers, but students up to age 35) federal education access and benefits, plus a conditional pass from deportation and a special path toward green cards and U.S. citizenship for themselves and unlimited relatives.

Obama argues that his comprehensive amnesty plan would boost America's bottom line.  But the open-borders math doesn't add up.  The Congressional Budget Office score of the last DREAM Act package estimates that "the bill would increase projected deficits by more than $5 billion in at least one of the four consecutive 10-year periods starting in 2021."  And that doesn't include the costs of the unlimited family members the millions of DREAM Act beneficiaries would be able to bring to the U.S.  A separate cost analysis by the Washington, D.C.-based Center for Immigration Studies concluded that the illegal alien DREAM Act bailout would cost taxpayers $6.2 billion a year and "crowd out" U.S. students in the classroom.

Mexicans Demand Racial-Grievance Studies
Don Feder says Multiculturalism, which used to be merely noxious, has become a raging infection which poses as much of a threat to America as the national debt or terrorism -- before Osama assumed room temperature.

Last week, a gang of ethnocentric thugs took over a meeting of the governing board of the Tucson, Arizona Unified School District, chaining themselves to desks, screaming slogans and chasing board members from the room.

They were enraged by an attempt to make a course that teaches history "from a Mexican-American perspective" optional instead of a substitute for a required course in U.S. history.

The Mexican American Studies Program incites approximately 1,700 middle- and high-school students in the district annually.

After an investigation, Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Horne determined that the basic theme of the curriculum (AKA: Raza — "the race" — Studies) is that Hispanic students "were and continue to be victims of a racist American society driven by the interests of middle- and upper-class whites."

Classrooms in which this pedagogy is perpetrated are decorated with pictures of such Latino "heroes" as Castro and Che Guevara.

Textbooks refer to citizens of this country as "Anglos" or "Euroamericans" (rather than Americans) and include such gems as an essay by one Robert Jensen which claims Thanksgiving is a "white supremacist holiday" that should be replaced by a "National Day of Atonement" for gringo sins against people of color.

The introductory chapter promises: "We will see how half of Mexico (California, Texas and the Southwest) was ripped off by trickery and violence.  We will see how Chicanos became a colonized people.  In the process of being colonized, we were robbed of land and other resources."  The nerve of those Texans, tricking Santa Anna into attacking the Alamo and killing its defenders to the last man.

In violation of a recently enacted Arizona law, the curriculum promotes the overthrow of the United States government and "resentment toward a race or class of people," is "designed primarily for pupils of a particular ethnic group" and advocates "ethnic solidarity instead of treatment of pupils as individuals."

The multiculturalist assault on America is multifaceted.
