The United States has a generous system for legal applications for those who can benefit our nation
The grisly murder of Border Patrol Agent Rogilio Martinez, 36, who was ambushed by illegal aliens he was tracking, once again highlights the lawlessness on our southern border. It is being reported that Agent Martinez’ skull was crushed when struck multiple times with a rock. Another agent — still unidentified — has suffered “extensive injuries,“ and has been hospitalized in serious condition.
Border Patrol Agent Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, is quoted as saying, “The other agent arrived on scene a short time later and was also ambushed and struck in the head with what is believed to have been a rock or rocks. These disgusting acts and complete disregard for human life need to stop immediately. Family members of slain Agent Martinez will never get to see him come home again all because we have failed to secure our borders from such criminals.”
According to the report, the unconscionable attacks occurred in the Big Bend Sector of Texas, about 30 miles north of Mexico. The FBI is leading the investigation while Border Patrol Special Operations agents and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Air and Marine Operations aircrews continue to search the area for the attackers.
American cities have become havens for illegal aliens. Liberals in charge have created sanctuaries for them. The monetary cost to American taxpayers is encroaching on $150 billion a year. The costs in crime is incalculable.
Grant Ronnebeck, a 21 year old Mesa clerk shot in the face by an illegal previously given a plea deal, is sadly but one of countless others senselessly murdered here in the Valley. Nationally, the numbers are astronomical. The murder of Kate Steinle called attention to the practice of allowing deported illegals to keep returning and commit even more heinous acts.
A secure nation is a basic right included in the Preamble to the Constitution. It‘s not a political football. The time to build the wall is now. It’s one of the primary reasons people across the nation rallied to support the presidency of Donald Trump. For decades Arizona’s politicians have given lip service to this crucial issue when elections roll around and then revert to putting foreign nationals who have illegally breached our border in the forefront of their agenda, with so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” as McCain and Kyl were dedicated to repeatedly promoting, or being instrumental in forming the “Gang of Eight,” as orchestrated by McCain and Flake.
We have the opportunity for a clean slate of senators, with Jeff Flake’s decision to retire after acknowledging the reality of his abysmal polling numbers — and octogenarian John McCain’s brain cancer diagnosis, which will limit the six-year term he was elected to in 2016.
Ask your state legislative candidates their position on the border. Don’t accept double talk. We’ve already seen where that’s gotten us These double-crossers all ran as conservatives. For a memory refresher, these were the blatant campaign lies told by Senators Jon Kyl, John McCain and Jeff Flake.
