80 Miles Of Arizona / Mexico Border Under Mexican Drug Cartel Control

Read Full Fox News Story

Calling Obama administration and Homeland (non) Security headed by Janet Napolitano incompetent it the biggest understatement of 2010. Under their watch and without any intervention from the federal government, Mexican Drug Cartels have established a home base on U.S. soil.

A 80 mile sector of Arizona / Mexican border has been declared as un-police able and effectively conceded to Mexican drug cartels. This includes part of national wildlife refuge and is now a virtual no-man’s land as violence by drug smugglers and illegals runs rampant.

Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu said that violence against law enforcement officers and U.S. citizens has increased in the past four months forcing officers on an 80 mile stretch of Arizona land north of the Mexico border off-limits to Americans Citizens.

Babeu said “We stood with Senator McCain and literally demanded support for 3,000 soldiers to be deployed to Arizona to get this under control and finally secure our border with Mexico.” It’s literally out of control”. U.S. Fish and Wildlife officials have warned visitors in Arizona to beware of heavily armed drug smugglers and human traffickers.

We need support from the federal government. It’s their job to secure the border and they haven’t done it. In fact, President Obama has suspended the construction of the fence and it’s just simply outrageous. Signs have been posted warning Americans not to cross into the closed off territory south of Interstate 8. Babeu said “signs are not enough Arizona needs more resources to help scale back the violence caused by the drug cartels.

Babeu said “We need action. It’s shameful that we, as the most powerful nation on Earth and we can’t even secure our own border and protect our own families.”

Why is Common Sense so Uncommon?

  1. I thought it was heading to be some boring aged publish, but it really compensated for my time. I will submit a website link to this web page on my blog. I am positive my visitors will find that pretty useful.

  2. Hi, i’m a college student and i’m gonna participate in a debate about the arizona immigration law. One of the most important parts of this debate will not only be the evidence we cite, but the sources of our information. For example, being told, (and being able to tell my audience and judge), that gangs and cartels have taken over part of the border to the degree that the army is being requested to sweep them, and citizens are no longer allowed in the region around the border, which is what your blog post says, is an awesome piece of evidence.
    But yeah, i’m wondering where u got this information? Even something as simple as a news website would be great-just not another blog. I’m going to be participating in this debate tomorrow night at 7, so please respond as soon as you’re able to! And feel free to let me know if this question was too complicated-i can definitely simplify it. Also, its no problem if u feel you’re no longer able to answer this question.

    respectfully yours

    • Thanks for visiting my humble little blog.

      Most of this information can be found in a Fox News Report 16 June 2010
      You can link to that report by clicking the Fox News Report link near the top of this blog or use the link I’m providing for you.

  7. Officer Babeu was on the evening news tonite saying that there are militia groups that are going into this region to forceably remove this contengency of Drug cartel enemies. The news caster interviewing him was astonished that these groups caould operate freely without legal oversight and wondered if the Sheriffs dept would be there to referee. He other stupid statement came when she asked and wondered outloud, if “innocent hikers” would be protectd in this region. OMG, what an imbecile! Groups of militia are capable and earger to do the job that the Federal Govt has complicitly ignored. We will regain thes 80 miles and Mexico would be very fortunate if we didn’t decide to keep on going all the way to the Southern border of Mexico. If the Mexican Government is this inept to take care of it;s citizens, it should welcome our invasion on them to restore order and civility in the region.

    The recent madness over the Arizona Governor signing a bill making it legal for police officers to question a persons immigration status has reached the point of lunacy. The city of Los Angeles, despite being nearly bankrupt, has decided to cease doing business with the State of Arizona . Because of previous pending contracts with Arizona business, the City of Los Angeles will lose money that is sorely needed to stave off potential bankruptcy. Why, you might ask, is L.A. doing something so reckless and obviously opposed to its citizens financial best interests? Political Correctness is the answer. Liberals ,without even reading the text of the law that was signed, are stirring up the usual suspects into a frenzy of non

    thinking protest and divisiveness that can only harm this nation at a time when we are vulnerable economically and from terrorist threats. Arizona has a problem with illegal immigration that needs to be solved. Constitutionally it is the job of the Federal Government to solve problems concerning immigration. The problem is that the Federal Government has not in the past done anything about this problem and refuses to do anything now. That being the case, the State of Arizona has a Constitutional obligation to protect its citizens. Because the Federal Government won’t act, the State of Arizona did and to legal scholars the law they passed passes Constitutional muster. Why won’t the Federal Government take action when it is obvious that our country is being invaded? The reasons are that 1. Corporations own this country and its political elites. They demand open borders to provide a constant supply of cheap labor and Scabs to defeat union organizing attempts. 2. Both Republicans and Democrats are petrified that they will permanently offend the largest growing ethnic population in the U.S. (Hispanics) and lose their votes. These parochial concerns have no credibility in a time when our national economic and physical security are so at risk. Since 1965, when the “Immigration Act of 1965″ was passed, the gates of this country have been thrown open to massive immigration from countries that have never had their people successfully assimilated into advanced first world cultures. Not only have they not assimilated, many have no desire to assimilate and come here with hostile attitudes to western culture. Just because there was a time when massive immigration was good for this country, does not mean that massive immigration is always a good thing. The ” Immigration Act of 1924″ limited immigration to allow for a time of assimilation of massive numbers who came between 1880 and 1920. During WWI. immigration ceased entirely. During WWII. there was an intentional moratorium placed on immigration. During hard times and times of national emergency these measures make good sense. What is the answer? What do we need to do right now? 1. We need to construct permanent twin fences (15 ft. high) enclosing a two lane road to permit Border Patrol to move in both directions . We need motion sensors buried in this roadway to detect people who have breached the outer fence. Beyond the fence there needs to be coiled wire (8 ft. high) and beyond the wire ditches to stop trucks and SUV’s along all 2,000 miles of the southern border. This should be paid for by a $5.00 fee to enter the U.S. and the savings from Welfare, Healthcare, Education and Incarceration that is used by illegal immigrants. 2. We need to end automatic citizenship of children born to illegals in the U.S. . 3. Legal immigrants should only be allowed to bring wives and children into the country (no other family members). 4. We need to end dual citizenship. Anyone who votes in a foreign election or serves in another country’s military should lose their U.S. citizenship. 5. Provide only emergency services to illegals (no schooling, medical, etc.) Hiring illegals should be a crime punishable by monetary fine. Repeated violations should be subject to jail terms. Illegals should be ineligible for Social Security and Earned Income Tax Credits. 6. Because we have an unemployment rate currently at 9.9% we should call a moratorium on all immigration into this country. This moratorium should stand until the unemployment rate goes back down to the 5% level. The above proposals would seem to represent no more than common sense in a time when our country is struggling and endangered from terrorists. That’s just my opinion.
