The U.S. government has been so negligent when it comes to illegal immigration that it has created a law enforcement crisis of unprecedented proportions in many areas of the southwest United States. Authorities in Arizona are now openly admitting that Mexican drug cartels totally control some areas of the state. Local police are outgunned, outmanned and are increasingly being shot by Mexican drug smugglers. Yet the U.S. government continues to do nothing to secure the border. The truth is that our insane immigration policy makes legal immigration incredibly difficult but does next to nothing to stop all the gang members, serial criminals, drug smugglers and terrorists that are regularly crossing the Mexican border whenever they want.
The video posted below should absolutely shock you. Law enforcement authorities in Arizona are now openly announcing that the Mexican drug cartels totally control a drug smuggling corridor that extends from the Mexican border all the way up to Phoenix.
As you watch the video below, take special note of the following incredibly shocking quotes from Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu....
"Drug cartels control this area."
"Local law enforcement cannot handle and stop this on our own."
"We are outgunned, we are outmanned and we don't have the resources here locally for us to fight this."
The following is another video news report that discusses how the U.S. government has now made some parts of Arizona off limits to U.S. citizens because of the threat of violence from Mexican drug smugglers....
So where is the federal government?
Local officials are crying out for assistance.
Talk about dropping the ball!
One of the things that the federal government is actually supposed to do is to secure our borders.
But years of neglect on the borders has created an illegal immigration nightmare as a Frosty Woolridge article pointed out recently....
Examples explode across America: 76 percent dropout rate in Detroit, Michigan high schools. Entrenched poverty. An astounding $35 million in goods shoplifted every day in America, honor killings of women now in America, mosques growing like flies in a barnyard, Muslim shootouts with FBI agents, first call for Sharia Law to be implemented in Detroit, Islamic calls to worship sounding over the once all American city. Another city, Los Angeles slowly returns to Mexican authority, language and culture. Every girl past 15 features a baby and most of those mothers cannot read past the fourth grade or work simple math. The Mexican “18th Street Gang” of 20,000 illegal aliens controls the drug trade in much of LA and police will not venture into their ghettos. MS-13 now in 40 American states. Millions of pounds of trash must be picked up as it is tossed all over LA. Chicago, Miami and Houston feature gangs, drugs and worse—all caused by mass immigration. Phoenix, Arizona features an astounding annual car theft rate of 57,000 vehicles to become the new “Car Theft Capital of the World.”
Things have gotten so bad that some states have taken matters into their own hands.
But when Arizona recently passed a watered-down anti-illegal immigration law in an attempt to do something about this security nightmare, the pro-illegal immigration community exploded in outrage.
To get an idea of how absolutely vicious the backlash has been against this new law in Arizona, just check out the following video....
But do these protests reflect the will of the American people?
The truth is that the American people overwhelmingly want something to be done about this horrific illegal immigration crisis.
One recent Rasmussen Reports poll found that almost two-thirds (64 percent) of voters in Arizona favor the new law. Another recent Rasmussen Reports telephone survey found that 60% of American voters nationwide favor an anti-immigration law like Arizona just passed, while just 31% are opposed.
Talk about a consensus.
But the U.S. government refuses to do anything.
In our recent article entitled "The Truth About Securing The Border" we noted that the U.S. seems more than happy to help other nations secure their borders and yet refuses to secure our own....
Is there a reason why the U.S. government refuses to secure our border with Mexico?
After all, we seem more than happy to help other nations secure their borders.
In fact, U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano has just agreed to help Saudi Arabia secure its dangerous border areas near Yemen.
Not only that, we have secured the border between South Korea and North Korea so well that not a single North Korean has crossed over the border illegally in over 50 years.
And yet we continue to leave our border with Mexico completely wide open.
Not only is doing so insanely bad public policy, it also greatly endangers our national security.
Border officials tell us that a growing number of radical Muslims are sneaking over the Mexican border into the United States.
And we are doing almost nothing to stop them.
This is a national nightmare and it is getting worse by the day.
If we do not do anything, crime will continue to get worse, gang violence will continue to get worse, drug dealing with continue to get worse and more law enforcement authorities will continue to be killed.
This is a desperate national security problem that needs an urgent solution.
But as long as Barack Obama is in the White House, nothing is going to be done about illegal immigration.
So if you live in an area that is crawling with Mexican drug smugglers, the truth is that you only have two options.
Either get used to it or move somewhere else.
