AZ AG Tom Horne’s strong message to Feds: Stop sending Illegals to AZ

June 12, 2014

AG cites federal statutes, potential legal action if dumping of illegals continues

Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne today formally demanded that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) immediately cease and desist the transportation and abandonment of illegal aliens from other states into Arizona.

Citing federal statutes – 8 U.S.C. § 1103(a)(5) and 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(1)(A)(ii) —  the Department of Homeland Security has been told to stop abandoning foreign nationals in Arizona.

In a statement released today, Horne said, “In the past two weeks, the Department of Homeland Security has transported, and continues to transport, a significant number of illegal immigrants from other states into Arizona.

Men, women and children left at bus terminals in temperatures exceeding 100 degrees with nothing more than instructions to report to the nearest ICE office within 15 days, posing significant health and safety risks both for the people being abandoned and the communities in which they are being stranded, is not acceptable.”

He noted, “Not only were these inadvisable and irresponsible actions done without notifying Arizona officials, but DHS has yet to explain why it is apprehending aliens in Texas, moving them some 1200 miles and simply releasing them in our state. There does not appear to be any lawful authority for such actions, and I am demanding it immediately stops. In the meantime, my office is aggressively looking into what legal remedies are available to allow for a federal lawsuit.”

This letter, the formal request for immediate agency action, was sent to Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson earlier today (June 12, 2014). In it, Attorney General Horne requests that the DHS furnish the following information as soon as possible:

1. The number of aliens transported to Arizona from Texas and left at bus stations since May 1, 2014;

2. The steps DHS took to ensure that none of these aliens were in need of medical treatment and that all of them were inoculated against communicable diseases;

3. The steps DHS took to ensure that none of these aliens were convicted criminals or engaged in smuggling or human trafficking at the time of their apprehension;

4. The steps DHS took to ensure that these aliens had sufficient financial and other means to avoid exploitation or the need for intervention by Arizona public officials in order to protect their safety and welfare; and

5. The steps DHS is taking to monitor their whereabouts and/or ensure that they will report to ICE offices for processing as instructed before they were released.

Given the Democrat-aiding amnesty scheming by the Obama administration, we might grow old waiting for an appropriate response to Attorney General Horne‘s reasonable request.

Mexican cartels threaten assassination of AZ lawmen

April 27, 2014

The Sierra Vista Herald details the dangerous escalation of events during what should have been a routine traffic stop, resulting in an officer involved shooting death of Lauro Jesus Avechuco, 40.

Avechuco is alleged to have driven his car at the officer, precipitating the deadly incident.  In accordance with department policy, the officer, Justin Dannels has been placed on administrative leave until a joint investigation by Sierra Vista police, the Cochise County Sheriff’s Office and the FBI can be completed and reviewed by the Cochise County Attorney’s Office.

In most instances, the news report would stop there.

But in this case, Officer Dannels is the son of Cochise County Sheriff Mark Dannels, and the incident has ignited “credible” death threats against the father and son from the drug cartels that control the area.

Yes, you read that correctly.

Sylvia Longmire, a Breitbart News border security expert and contributing editor, lives in southern Arizona. She is quoted as saying, “The region immediately south of Sierra Vista and Naco are predominantly controlled by the Sinaloa cartel. If credible threats are coming from that region, it is either from the Sinaloa directly, or from a criminal enterprise under the umbrella of the cartel.”

Longmire added, “Threats such as these bring increased scrutiny to the region and can interfere with the cartels smuggling efforts. If such threats did not originate with cartel approval, the issuer of the threats could find themselves in serious trouble with the Sinaloa Federation.”

Breitbart’s Brandon Darby provides the complete menacing report. As you digest the facts as they relate to the safety and security of our Arizona citizens and the lawmen who defend them, consider the cavalier attitude of the Congressional elite who are intent on pushing an amnesty bill that omits the volatile word ‘amnesty’ —- since it rings in as a miserable failure among focus groups. Remember when “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” was the reconstructed verbiage used by Sens. Kyl and McCain?  Today, the preferred terminology is “legal status” and it is always used in conjunction with a worthless pledge to implement “border security.”

August is the latest prioritized deadline to turn on the flashing neon welcome sign on our border and roll out the red carpet for the multitude of illegals that will surely follow the hordes of invaders already here. We wrote this warning on Friday.

Language is important. When the words “breaking up families,” “undocumented immigrants,”  “migrants” or the bogus figure of11 million in the shadows” are used, it’s time to burn up the congressional phone lines. We’re losing our country and those Republicrats we sent to Washington are enabling the takeover. Their incomprehensible efforts will also ensure the death of the Republican Party under whose banner they ran.

Will you be able to look your children —- or theirs —- in the eye if you do nothing?


Bloomberg’s $50 million attack on 2nd Amendment

April 17, 2014

Anti-gun leftist, feds & even your doctor want your weapons

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is not letting any grass grow under his resoled loafers now that he’s unemployed. Instead he‘s refocusing his efforts at restricting guns in America, and pledging at least $50 million to accomplish his goal.

Bloomberg, reputedly worth over $31 billion dollars —- ranking 10th on Forbes’ list of America’s Richest People —- has unsuccessfully tried in the past to wage a national campaign against guns. Now the Second Amendment restrictionist is launching a new gun control organization, ‘Everytown for Gun Safety,’ that he hopes can rival the mega status of the National Rifle Association (NRA).

Bloomberg’s bottom line is expansion of background checks to prevent increasing numbers of law-abiding citizens from owning guns. He’s working hand-in-glove with the Obama administration which is stealthily at work creating the infrastructure for a universal gun registry. In budget proposals known as “Program Increases” for the FBI, Attorney General Eric Holder says: “This program enhancement will double the capacity of the existing NICS —- National Instant Check System.  These expansions are vital in ensuring that the NICS system can support a Universal Background Check requirement, which is expected to double gross NICS transactions.” Gun Owners of America‘s alert continues here.

Everytown’s mission statement, claims the effort is “a movement of Americans working together to end gun violence and build safer communities.”

Then comes the tirade:

Speaking of the NRA, Bloomberg bizarrely rants: “They say, ‘We don’t care. We’re going to go after you, If you don’t vote with us we’re going to go after your kids and your grandkids and your great-grandkids. And we’re never going to stop.’ We’ve got to make them afraid of us,” Bloomberg bellowed.

And if you think mature adult gun owners are safe from this lunacy, think again.

Health care attorney Marshall Kapp, director of the Center for Innovative Collaboration in Medicine and Law at Florida State University Medical School is of the opinion that doctors who treat older patients should routinely ask whether they have access to guns. He defends speaking with family members about confiscating weapons, saying “the physician’s right to engage in firearm-related inquiries could actually be characterized as a legally enforceable obligation.”

“If families are unwilling to cooperate, doctors may need to turn to the law for help,” Kapp said. “Failure to address firearm safety for seniors can be considered a form of neglect that should be reported to the Adult Protective Services agency since it arguably constitutes elder mistreatment.”

Kapp’s shocking report, “Geriatric Patients, Firearms, and Physicians,” was published September 2013 in the Annals of Internal Medicine.


Bill Montgomery’s REAL(ly) strange friends

March 21, 2014

Republican pretenders blow their cover

A group calling itself theReal Arizona Coalition,” claims it is inclusive, broad-based and represented by a respected and multicultural array of the state’s community, faith and business leadership organizations. These people, we’re advised, represent many thousands of other individuals throughout Arizona.

It’s a pitch that sounds more like a threat than a promise. Then comes, what the used car salesman at the shoddy downtown lot calls the “big closer.” The Real Arizona Coalition’s “Real Solution,” it turns out, is the “SANE Approach to Federal Immigration Reform.”

The first clue is the hackneyed old saw that our immigration system is broken. In fact the system isn’t broken at all.  What has collapsed is the will of the political establishment to push back against the vast illegal invasion of our country. The group has every trite response, including repeatedly telling us “we need federal immigration reform for a 21st century economy.”

Worse is the Real Arizona Coalition’s admission that its goal is for Arizona’s Congressional delegation to support the SANE federal immigration platform that advances such an economy. Its intent is “to move beyond issues focused only on enforcement and toward solutions that address the underlying problems with our current immigration system, while respecting the historic and ongoing contributions of immigrants. The ability to obtain citizenship must be addressed by Congress with discernment and fairness, and we have great hope that our elected officials and the American people can find and support a reasonable solution — even if it means engaging in compromise.”

Still blinking?  Go ahead and read that doozy of a goal again. It’s worth remembering as you wade through the rhetoric that the deceptive premise is to engineer congressional action to gift American citizenship to those who disrespect our laws, march through our cities making demands and issuing threats, refuse to assimilate and promote Reconquista or re-conquering the Southwestern U.S. for Mexico in our public schools. Omitted are the vast array of negative impacts on our citizens in terms of the devastation of jobs lost to illegal workers, the high costs of providing benefits and combating increased crime.

Although this list consists of the usual cast of left-wingers —- Democrats, lukewarm Republicans, ethnic advocacy groups. and organizations including the Democrat Party, there are a few surprises in the form of Republican establishment types who deceptively campaign as conservatives. Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery, whose job it is to enforce the law, is keeping mighty strange company these days. For him and the others of his ilk to engage in a process that suborns the interests of their constituents to those of the lobbyists and party elites whose favor they hope to curry is beyond disappointing. Also tucked in among the horde of liberals are RINOs Kirk Adams, gubernatorial candidate Scott Smith, and Lucy Mason who is currently running as a team with Vernon Parker for two vacancies on the Arizona Corporation Commission. They are all ready to sell their souls to the McCain wing of the party to advance their own political aspirations.

It’s no secret the Congressional Republicans the Coalition is diligently recruiting intend to pull a fast one on voters who oppose amnesty. The plan is to delay a vote on an amnesty bill until after the deadline passes for primary challenges across the country. That allows Republican lawmakers whose constituents adamantly oppose these provisions to wait until there are no primary challengers —- and then vote against the voters’ interest.

Don’t be conned. The “Real Arizona Coalition” stands exposed as REAL(ly) extreme Arizona liberals, regardless of which political tags they opt to use.
