The latest battle in the war on illegal immigration isn’t over the smuggling of undocumented workers, it’s over the trash they leave behind.
In 2006 alone, more than 1.18 million pounds of trash was collected along southern Arizona border, many in the meeting spots where immigrants rest, change clothes and wait to hitch a ride further north with a smuggler.
Arizonia officials have spent approximately $4.4 million over five years to clean up the mess, that continues to build with each crossing. Nearly $1 million was spent for 2007 from a base BLM appropriation.
“What we’re beginning to wonder is how extensive is the problem?” McFarlin said. “How many millions of pounds of garbage? How many roads are really damaged? How many miles of illegal trails?”
10-year-old gives birth in Idaho; Suspected illegal immigrant charged with rapeA 37-year-old man is charged with raping a 10-year-old girl who gave birth last month in Idaho.
Police said they were notified of the young girl's pregnancy by medical personnel after she went in for treatment at a doctor's office.
Guadalupe Gutierrez-Juarez, a suspected illegal immigrant, is being held at the Fremont County Jail. He's due in court next week to face rape charges.
DNC Superdelegate Puts His Vote Up For Sale
Steven Ybarra Wants $20 Million For His VoteIn this tight battle for the Democratic nomination we've heard a lot about the candidates courting superdelegates.
But, one superdelegate is courting the candidates. He says he'll sell his vote for a price. A very high price: $20 million.
Steven Ybarra of Sacramento says that eight-figure price is peanuts for the presidency.
Ybarra wants every cent of the $20 million to go towards registering and educating eligible Mexican-American voters, who he calls the key to the White House.
SALT LAKE CITY -- Births among Utah's young Hispanics rose significantly in 2006.
The state Health Department says 105 of every 1,000 young Hispanic females gave birth that year. That's up from 100 per every 1,000 in 2005. The mothers were ages 15 to 19.
Utah's adolescent health coordinator, Jennifer Mayfield, says it's a "huge" increase.
The state's overall teen-birth rate rose in 2006 for the first time in 10 years. Thirty-one of every 1,000 young females gave birth, up from 29 in 2005.
Utah's rate is below the national figure for young moms, which is 42 per 1,000.
A staff member at Calverton Elementary/Middle was putting in extra hours at the West Baltimore school Sunday afternoon when two 13-year-old boys broke into the building and one tried to rape her, police confirmed yesterday.
Realizing that her attacker was unarmed, police said, the woman fought back, and both the boys—identified as students at the school—fled. When they returned for class Monday, they were arrested and charged as juveniles with attempted first-degree rape, attempted robbery, aggravated assault, burglary and trespassing, police said.
(the Narrator note: Notice these young criminals returned to school the following Monday with no fear of consequences)
The attack highlighted continuing concerns about city students attacking staff members, and it raised new worries about the safety of the many city administrators and teachers who work in their buildings beyond school hours. While students have attacked staff members more than 100 times this academic year and one assault on a teacher was recently publicized on national news, this is the year’s first case of an attempted sexual assault against a staff member, officials said.
“It kind of blew me away,” said the school police chief, Marshall “Toby” Goodwin. “The kids are just out of control. Any time a kid comes in and does something like this, it tells you about the family values at home. There are none.”

Twelve Americans are murdered every day by illegal aliens, according to statistics released by Rep. Steve King, Rep.-Iowa...
But the carnage wrought by illegal alien murderers represents only a fraction of the pool of blood spilled by American citizens as a result of an open border and un-enforced immigration laws.While King reports 12 Americans are murdered daily by illegal aliens, he says 13 are killed by drunk illegal alien drivers
(The Narrator note: For those keeping count, that means that since September 11, 2001, approx. 55,000 Americans have been killed by illegal immigrants!)
King also reports eight American children are victims of sexual abuse by illegal aliens every day – a total of 2,920 annually.
Based on a one-year in-depth study, Deborah Schurman-Kauflin of the Violent Crimes Institute of Atlanta estimates there are about 240,000 illegal immigrant sex offenders in the United States who have had an average of four victims each. She analyzed 1,500 cases from January 1999 through April 2006 that included serial rapes, serial murders, sexual homicides and child molestation committed by illegal immigrants.
As the number of illegal aliens in the U.S. increases, so does the number of American victims.
...at the end of 2003, approximately 267,000 illegal aliens were incarcerated in all U.S. jails and prisons.
In April 2005, the Government Accountability Office released a report on a study of 55,322 illegal aliens incarcerated in federal, state, and local facilities during 2003. It found the following:
- The 55,322 illegal aliens studied represented a total of 459,614 arrests – some eight arrests per illegal alien;
- Their arrests represented a total of about 700,000 criminal offenses – some 13 offenses per illegal alien;
- 36 percent had been arrested at least five times before.
WASHINGTON – Mexican drug cartels operating in cities in the U.S. are buying up legitimate businesses to launder money and using some of the proceeds to win local mayoral and city council seats for politicians who can shape the policies and personnel decisions of their police forces, according to Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colo....
Tancredo exposes what he has learned from meetings with law enforcement authorities regarding a concerted effort by the Mexican mafia and drug cartels to extend their corruptive influence in urban areas dominated by illegal alien populations.
"The Tijuana-based Felix drug cartel and the Juarez-based Fuentes cartel began buying legitimate business in small towns in Los Angeles County in the early 1990s," he writes in his new book published by WND Books. "They purchased restaurants, used-car lots, auto-body shops and other small businesses. One of their purposes was to use these businesses for money-laundering operations. Once established in their community, these cartel-financed business owners ran for city council and other local offices. Over time, they were able to buy votes and influence in an effort to take over the management of the town. They wanted to create a comfort zone from which they could operate without interference from local law enforcement."
...as an example, to the L.A. County city of Bell Gardens – where corrupt elected officials under the influence of drug lords actually tried to shut down the police department.
"City officials who would not cooperate with the Mexican-born city manager were forced out of office," he writes. "Eventually, the L.A. County attorney's office moved in, and the city manager was prosecuted on charges of corruption. Unfortunately, Bell Gardens was only the tip of the iceberg. Other Los Angeles suburbs – including Huntington Park, Lynwood and Southgate – became targets for the cartels."In fact, similar efforts to undermine law and order by Mexican criminal gangs are under way, Tancredo says, in Texas, Arizona and elsewhere. "The corruption spreading from south of the border is not confined to Southern California," he writes.
The number of illegals in America is unknown, but is estimated to be between 12 to 30 million. Every day thousands more pour across the border...
And these numbers do not even touch upon the millions more legal immigrants who are flooding the nation...
The New Century Foundation released the following report,
The great majority of Hispanics — 66 percent — are of Mexican origin. No less than ten percent of the population of Mexico now lives in the United States, and one out of every seven Mexican workers migrates here.(3) Many more would like to come: According to a recent survey, almost half of all Mexicans said that they would move to the United States if they had the chance.(4)
The 33 percent of Hispanics who are not from Mexico have mainly the following heritages: 17 percent Latin American, nine percent Puerto Rican, and four percent Cuban (See figure to the right).(5) The characteristics of these populations are often quite different, with Cuban immigrants generally more economically successful than those from Mexico, Central America, or Puerto Rico.
Income and Wealth
Per capita income of Hispanics is one half that of non-Hispanic whites, and household net worth is less than one tenth.
Fifty percent of Hispanic households use some form of welfare, the highest rate of any major population group.
Hispanics are 3.3 times more likely to be in prison than whites; they are 4.2 times more likely to be in prison for murder, and 5.8 times more likely to be in prison for felony drug crimes.
Young Hispanics are 19 times more likely than young whites (and slightly more likely than young blacks) to be in youth gangs.
Hispanics drop out of high school at three times the white rate and twice the black rate.
Even third-generation Hispanics drop out of school at a higher rate than blacks and are less likely to be college graduates.
From 1992 to 2003, Hispanic illiteracy in English rose from 35 percent to 44 percent.
The average Hispanic 12th-grader reads and does math at the level of the average white 8th-grader.
Families and Health
At 43 percent, the Hispanic illegitimacy rate is twice the white rate, and Hispanic women have abortions at 2.7 times the white rate.
Hispanics are three times more likely than whites not to have medical insurance, and die from AIDS and tuberculosis at three times the white rate.
In California, the cost of free medical care for illegal aliens forced 60 hospitals to close between 1993 and 2003.
Only 33 percent of citizens of Hispanic origin consider themselves "Americans" first. The rest consider themselves either "Hispanic/Latino" or their former nationality first.
