How Mexico treats illegal aliens

Hat tip:  Michelle Malkin for this fantastic article

Mexican President Felipe Calderon has accused Arizona of opening the door "to intolerance, hate, discrimination and abuse in law enforcement." But Arizona has nothing on Mexico when it comes to cracking down on illegal aliens. While open-borders activists decry new enforcement measures signed into law in "Nazi-zona" last week, they remain deaf, dumb or willfully blind to the unapologetically restrictionist policies of our neighbors to the south.

The Arizona law bans sanctuary cities that refuse to enforce immigration laws, stiffens penalties against illegal alien day laborers and their employers, makes it a misdemeanor for immigrants to fail to complete and carry an alien registration document, and allows the police to arrest immigrants unable to show documents proving they are in the U.S. legally. If those rules constitute the racist, fascist, xenophobic, inhumane regime that the National Council of La Raza, Al Sharpton, Catholic bishops and their grievance-mongering followers claim, then what about these regulations and restrictions imposed on foreigners?

- The Mexican government will bar foreigners if they upset "the equilibrium of the national demographics." How's that for racial and ethnic profiling?

- If outsiders do not enhance the country's "economic or national interests" or are "not found to be physically or mentally healthy," they are not welcome. Neither are those who show "contempt against national sovereignty or security." They must not be economic burdens on society and must have clean criminal histories. Those seeking to obtain Mexican citizenship must show a birth certificate, provide a bank statement proving economic independence, pass an exam and prove they can provide their own healthcare.

- Illegal entry into the country is equivalent to a felony punishable by two years' imprisonment. Document fraud is subject to fine and imprisonment; so is alien marriage fraud. Evading deportation is a serious crime; illegal re-entry after deportation is punishable by ten years' imprisonment. Foreigners may be kicked out of the country without due process and the endless bites at the litigation apple that illegal aliens are afforded in our country (see, for example, President Obama's illegal alien aunt -- a fugitive from deportation for eight years who is awaiting a second decision on her previously rejected asylum claim).

- Law enforcement officials at all levels -- by national mandate -- must cooperate to enforce immigration laws, including illegal alien arrests and deportations. The Mexican military is also required to assist in immigration enforcement operations. Native-born Mexicans are empowered to make citizens' arrests of illegal aliens and turn them in to authorities.

- Ready to show your papers? Mexico's National Catalog of Foreigners tracks all outside tourists and foreign nationals. A National Population Registry tracks and verifies the identity of every member of the population, who must carry a citizens' identity card. Visitors who do not possess proper documents and identification are subject to arrest as illegal aliens.

All of these provisions are enshrined in Mexico's Ley General de PoblaciĆ³n (General Law of the Population) and were spotlighted in a 2006 research paper published by the Washington, DC-based Center for Security Policy. There's been no public clamor for "comprehensive immigration reform" in Mexico, however, because pro-illegal alien speech by outsiders is prohibited.

Consider: Open-borders protesters marched freely at the Capitol building in Arizona, comparing GOP Gov. Jan Brewer to Hitler, waving Mexican flags, advocating that demonstrators "Smash the State," and holding signs that proclaimed "No human is illegal" and "We have rights."

But under the Mexican constitution, such political speech by foreigners is banned. Noncitizens cannot "in any way participate in the political affairs of the country." In fact, a plethora of Mexican statutes enacted by its congress limit the participation of foreign nationals and companies in everything from investment, education, mining and civil aviation to electric energy and firearms. Foreigners have severely limited private property and employment rights (if any).

As for abuse, the Mexican government is notorious for its abuse of Central American illegal aliens who attempt to violate Mexico's southern border. The Red Cross has protested rampant Mexican police corruption, intimidation and bribery schemes targeting illegal aliens there for years. Mexico didn't respond by granting mass amnesty to illegal aliens, as it is demanding that we do. It clamped down on its borders even further. In late 2008, the Mexican government launched an aggressive deportation plan to curtain illegal Cuban immigration and human trafficking through Cancun.

Meanwhile, Mexican consular offices in the United States have coordinated with left-wing social justice groups and the Catholic Church leadership to demand a moratorium on all deportations and a freeze on all employment raids across America.

Mexico is doing the job Arizona is now doing -- a job the U.S. government has failed miserably to do: putting its people first. Here's the proper rejoinder to all the hysterical demagogues in Mexico (and their sympathizers here on American soil) now calling for boycotts and invoking Jim Crow laws, apartheid, and the Holocaust because Arizona has taken its sovereignty into its own hands:


What gives the Mexican president the right to criticize Arizona, talk about audacity.

I am really, truly, completely FED UP with illegal aliens marching on AMERICAN streets protesting our laws and claiming civil liberty and civil rights!  THEY HAVE NO RIGHTS, THEY ARE
I L L E G A L!  Good grief!  It's time to haul their happy you-know-whats back to their prospective countries!  And let them protest, waving their national flags on THEIR OWN soil. Stay the hell off of mine.

Sorry to get so testy but it irks me to no end seeing these people get all the breaks and they do, trust me on this.

Muslim students prove this is a Christian nation

If you have never heard Focal Point with Bryan Fischer, I recommend you that you find a station that carries is his radio talk show it is very enlightening.  Anyhoo, I came across his blog and found this artical very interesting take a read:

Muslim students at Trinity University in Texas are complaining about the phrase "In the year of our Lord" on their diplomas, and inadvertently proving that this is a Christian nation in the process.

Trinity, whose name and motto (Latin: "E Tribus Unum", English: "From three, one") are both explicitly Christian, is being accused by Muslim students of using a "bait and switch" tactic, nefariously tricking them them into enrolling and then springing this politically incorrect diploma on them without warning at the end of the educational process.

We must assume, of course, that these students could not get into Trinity without being able to read, making their accusation ludicrous. Evidence that they were not enrolling in an imam-led institution can be found in the presence of a chapel (not a mosque) on campus, a Bible on the school seal, and the presence of a Christian chaplain. Exactly what about that chain of evidence did these students not understand?

When they choose to attend a school with the name "Trinity," a school founded by the Presbyterian church in 1869, they shouldn't be surprised to find that it is not a madrassa and that is uses an explicitly Christian system of dating.

And this is the problem for them. As Senior Sidra Qureshi says, "A diploma is a very personal item, and people want to proudly display it in their offices and homes. By having the phrase 'In the year of Our Lord,' it is directly referencing Jesus Christ, and not everyone believes in Jesus Christ." (Emphasis mine)

Now Ms. Qureshi has put her finger squarely on a huge problem for secular fundamentalists. She correctly observes that the "Lord" in the phrase "In the year of Our Lord" is a specific reference to Jesus Christ.

But this is precisely the dating formula used in the Constitution of the United States of America. It too, just like the diploma Ms. Qureshi finds so politically incorrect and so multiculturally insensitive, is dated "in the Year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and Eighty seven." For all Muslims, this makes the United States itself indelibly and inexcusably Christian.

And you will notice the Founders compound the problem for Christophobes by identifying the year not just as the year of "the Lord," but the year of "our Lord," meaning that all 55 Framers went on record to declare that Jesus Christ was their Lord.

Proof that this dating formula was not just an afterthought but a conscious, deliberate decision comes from the fact that the Founders added the phrase, "and of the Independence of the United States of America the Twelfth."

So the Founders dated our foundational document from two moments of vast historical significance: the birth of Jesus Christ and the Declaration of Independence.

I've had some secular fundamentalists tell me that this doesn't make the document or the nation Christian in any sense since the dating formula was simply customary. I respond by saying this makes the case worse for them, since my friends are admitting that it was so common for the Founders to think of Jesus as Lord that they had not a moment's hesitation in putting his name in our foundational document and expressing their personal allegiance to him.

If you need any additional confirmation, examine for a moment the way Israel dates all of its official documents. All official institutions in the State of Israel assiduously avoid using the Anno Domini ("in the year of our Lord") dating method, and instead substitute the Anno Mundi ("In the year of the world"). So 2010 AD is not 2010 AD in Israel, it's the year 5770. Why? Simple - Israel is not a Christian nation.

(In passing, it's worthy of note that the Israeli calendar is dated from the creation of Adam, which makes the nation of Israel officially a young earth country. Who knew?)

You've got the same dynamic in Islamic countries. The Muslim calendar is not dated from the birth of Christ or the creation of Adam, but from the year in which Muhammad emigrated from Mecca to Medina, the journey known as the Hijra. For Muslim nations, the system is Anno Hegirae ("in the year of the Hijra"). For Muslims, the current year is 1432 AH. So in Arab countries, the current year is not 2010 AD, it's the year 1432. Why? Simple - they're not Christian nations.

Every time you date a check, or pick up a newspaper in the United States, you are bearing silent witness to the spiritual origins of our country.

Bottom line: America is a Christian nation. Every calendar in the world proves it.

WE THE PEOPLE! Obama hear our unified voice!

I hope you will take the time to WATCH this powerful video.  It is a war cry!

I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend! Today I was a part of such a wonderful prayer session with my Ladies Prayer group. We gathered at an old vacant building and held our colorful banners high and prayed for this nation, our city and for a 24-hour prayer center. And guess what? Someone off the street came down and asked us what we were doing and we told him. He gave us a short testimony and we praised God for awesome mercy over this man.

Have a blessed weekend and remember God is always in control. His mercy is everlasting and His love endures forever and ever, amen.

Army considers rescinding invitation to evangelist - UPDATE

The Army HAS rescinded an invitation to evangelist Franklin Graham to appear at the Pentagon amid complaints about his description of Islam as evil, a military spokesman said Wednesday.

Graham, the son of famed evangelist Billy Graham, was to appear at the Pentagon on May 6 _ the National Day of Prayer.

He said he will be a guest of the Pentagon and would speak only if he's still invited.

Army Col. Tom Collins said withdrawing the invitation "is on the table," but no decision has been made. He said Army brass will have the ultimate decision on whether to pull the invite.

The Military Religious Freedom Foundation raised the objection to the appearance, citing Graham's past remarks about Islam.

Mikey Weinstein, president of the foundation, said the invitation offended Muslim employees at the Pentagon. He said it would endanger American troops by stirring up Muslim extremists.

Collins said the invitation wasn't from the Pentagon but from the Colorado-based National Day of Prayer Task Force, which works with the Pentagon chaplain's office on the prayer event.

Collins said neither Army Secretary John McHugh nor Chief of Staff Gen. George W. Casey Jr. was aware of the invitation.

The task force organizes Christian events for the National Day of Prayer.

Task force chairwoman Shirley Dobson said in a written statement that U.S. leaders have called for a day of prayer during times of crisis since 1775 but the tradition is under attack.

"Enough is enough," said Dobson, wife of conservative Christian leader James Dobson. "We at the National Day of Prayer Task Force ask the American people to defend the right to pray in the Pentagon."

She called on President Barack Obama to appeal a ruling by a federal judge in Wisconsin last week that the National Day of Prayer was unconstitutional because it amounts to a call for religious action. The judge did not bar any observances until all appeals are exhausted.

Weinstein objected to the working relationship between the Pentagon chaplain's office and the task force, saying the chaplains have effectively endorsed the task force by using its materials and routinely inviting its honorary chairman to speak at the Pentagon.

Weinstein said that amounts to preferential treatment in violation of Defense Department rules.

Collins said the working relationship has been reviewed by Pentagon lawyers and passed legal scrutiny.

"We are an all-inclusive military. We hold observances throughout the year. This one happens to be a Christian-themed event," Collins said.

Graham is president and CEO of both Samaritan's Purse, a Christian international relief organization in Boone, N.C., and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association in Charlotte.

After the 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, Graham said Islam "is a very evil and wicked religion." In a later op-ed piece in The Wall Street Journal, Graham wrote that he did not believe Muslims were evil because of their faith, but "as a minister ... I believe it is my responsibility to speak out against the terrible deeds that are committed as a result of Islamic teaching."

So, there we have it again.  People claiming that Islam is not evil.  Really?  Then why are there videos of radical Islamists beheading and/or torturing their own people?  Why is it that if a woman is raped, she is the one that is either killed or tortured and not the male perpetrator?  Why is it that they choose children to strap their bombs on their backs and use them as suicide bombers?  Why is it that they use innocent civilians as human shields?  Why?  Why are so many people convinced that Islam is peaceful?  Why?

The ENDA innocence for our children

Courtesy of

While many of us were focused on defeating government-run healthcare, the Democrats and their homosexual and transgender allies were working overtime on something equally sinister.

House Democrats have been quietly plotting how to rush through the so-called "Employment Non-Discrimination Act" (ENDA) which will force every public school in America to hire transgendered teachers and forbid their re-assignment out of the classroom. A vote on ENDA in the House Education and Labor Committee is likely on April 21.

Under ENDA, federal, state and local governments, as well as businesses with 15 or more employees, will be forced to employ and affirm men who wear dresses -- including school teachers.

Currently, 38 states do not make "gender identity" into a protected minority under law. But once Barack Obama signs ENDA, this will change. "Gender Identity" is actually a Gender Identity Disorder (GID) listed as a mental disorder by the American Psychiatric Association. A GID person thinks he or she is the opposite sex.

What supporters of ENDA do not want you to know is that under ENDA, those 38 states' laws will be overruled by federal law.

Every state will be forced to make cross-dressers, drag queens, transsexuals, and she-males* (male-female hybrids) into protected classes. Therefore, every school district in America will be forbidden by law to reassign any she-male teacher because this would be considered "discrimination." Thus, children will be trapped in classes taught by men who dress as women, and students will be indoctrinated to affirm that this is normal behavior.

Children need a stable and secure environment in which to learn. ENDA threatens that. Our nation's children will be victims of ENDA.

All too often I hear, "Hey, my kids are in a Christian school" or "My kids are home schooled so this won't affect me." The reality is that an estimated 90+ percent of Christian kids attend public school in the United States. ENDA will impact these children in devastating ways.

Consider what's already happening in certain states:

• In 2008, students and parents were outraged to learn that a female music teacher at California's Foxboro Elementary School underwent surgery to become a man. Parents were not informed about this so-called sex change in advance so they could remove their children from her class. In addition, the kids were required to refer to her as "Mister." The school district refused to notify parents about this she-male's so-called sex change because of "privacy laws" – that is, federal HIPPA laws.

• In 2006, students in New York's Batavia High School were forced to remain in the class of a male teacher who was undergoing so-called surgical transition to female. Parents were refused the right to opt their children out of his class because he claimed protection under New York's disability laws, and, therefore, had to be accommodated by the school district.

• In 1999, Minnesota music teacher Alyssa Williams underwent a so-called sex change operation from male to female while teaching at a Middle School in the Anoka-Hennepin School District. Parents were angered when their children were subjected to this man's bizarre sexual transformation. The school superintendent said they could not reassign the man to another position because it would have violated state law which gave special protected rights to transgendered individuals.

And these are only a few of the grotesque ENDA horror stories.

If ENDA passes, Christian businesses, Christian camps, Christian counselors, Christian child care, Christian bookstores, and Christian TV and radio stations will be forced by ENDA to hire individuals whose behavior is in violation of their religious tenets.

Why are children going to be exposed to teachers who have a psycho-sexual mental disorder? Who is behind this sinister effort? Enter Chai Feldblum, a lesbian activist who was recess-appointed by President Obama just this month. She now serves on the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, which would help enforce the law if passed. (See earlier article)

ENDA was written by Feldblum. She wants the government to promote every type of relationship as equal to traditional marriage, including "polyamorous" relationships (those involving three or more sexual partners). She states: "I, for one, am not sure whether marriage is a normatively good institution. I have moved away from the belief that marriage is clearly the best normative way to structure intimate relationships."

Feldblum also believes that sexual liberty trumps religious liberty. "Sexual liberty should win in most cases," she has stated. "There can be a conflict between religious liberty and sexual liberty, but in almost all cases the sexual liberty should win because that's the only way that the dignity of gay people can be affirmed in any realistic manner."

ENDA can and must be stopped. Most members of Congress don't know that under ENDA, schools will be forbidden to reassign any teacher undergoing a so-called sex change because this would be considered "discrimination"; nor do they know that public schools across America will no longer be able to avoid hiring transgender individuals to teach schoolchildren.

U.S. representatives in Congress, many hoping to avoid tough votes as they focus on their reelection, must learn what this bill would mean for schools and for kids. Impressionable young children should be protected from these teachers who are undergoing their own identity crises.

Congress must hear from you that a vote for ENDA is a vote for the LGBT agenda and against children.

A Tribute to Dixie Carter, may she rest in peace.

Here are three clips of my favorite episodes of Designing Women.  The first one is where she superbly sings How Great Thou Art, her voice is phenomenal.  God be with her grieving family.

Dixie Carter was once quoted saying that she was the only Republican in Hollywood. She may have played a liberal, a women's lib supporter and Democrat, but in reality she truly was Republican. She will be deeply missed by all.

Thank you Litfulse for providing with my own copy to review this fantastic book.

Sundin’s debut Christian historical romance introduces an emotionally gripping, detail-rich but fast-paced trilogy. Romance readers and military history buffs will find much of interest her.

ABOUT THE BOOK:  Never pretty enough to please her gorgeous mother, Allie will do anything to gain her approval--even marry a man she doesn't love.

Lt. Walter Novak--fearless in the cockpit but hopeless with women--takes his last furlough at home in California before being shipped overseas. Walt and Allie meet at a wedding and their love of music draws them together, prompting them to begin a correspondence that will change their lives.

As letters fly between Walt's muddy bomber base in England and Allie's mansion in an orange grove, their friendship binds them together. But can they untangle the secrets, commitments, and expectations that keep them apart?

A Distant Melody is the first book in the WINGS OF GLORY series, which follows the three Novak brothers, B-17 bomber pilots with the US Eighth Air Force stationed in England during World War II.

MY REVIEW:  I truly do not have the words to articulate how much this book impacted me.  First the compelling love story between the two main characters, which had it's own painful challenges.  And of course, the true reality and horror of war.  This book is so well written that you feel like you are there experiencing the soldiers fear, anguish, pain and courage during combat.  I could literally feel the tension as they confronted their enemies on the plane.   I was very impressed with how vivid and intricate the details were in describing the B-17 Bomber plane.  What surprised me the most was how often I laughed and mostly cried, tears rolling down my face.  How courageous our men were.  And as for the love story, well, it all fits in together nicely.  A FANTASTIC WWII novel. 

AMAZINGLY THIS is the Sarah Sundin's first novel!  Very impressive.
Sarah Sundin is an on-call hospital pharmacist and holds a BS in chemistry from UCLA and a doctorate in pharmacy from UC San Francisco. Her great-uncle flew with the US Eighth Air Force in England during WWII. Sarah lives in California with her husband and three children. This is her first novel.

NC teacher out of classroom after Facebook posts

A North Carolina middle-school teacher who was suspended after complaining on her Facebook page that Christian students subjected her to a "hate crime" has been moved out of the classroom.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Thursday that Melissa Hussain was reassigned last month to become the Wake County school district's coordinating teacher for middle school science. Neither she nor a spokesman for the district would discuss the transfer.

Hussain was suspended with pay in February following complaints from parents about comments on the teacher's Facebook page.

Hussain wrote on the social-networking site that it was a "hate crime" that her eighth-grade students anonymously left a Bible on her desk. She said she wouldn't let the incident go unpunished.

I really found this article absolutely funny!  I cannot believe that this supposedly educated woman would accuse anyone of leaving a bible on a desk a "Hate Crime!" It is comical to say the least.  And this why this law should be repealed, just for instances such as this.

Obama leaves the US defenseless

The Obama administration will pledge NOT to use nuclear weapons against most non-nuclear countries -- no matter what they use against us --however, they will keep "all options" open for nations like North Korea and Iran.

The declaration came out of the Obama administration's revised nuclear policy, under which the United States will not to develop or test any new nuclear weapons.  The document is aimed at leading the world in reducing nuclear stockpiles. What makes this incompetent administration think that other countries will follow the same suit?  This a blind and ridiculous effort to disarm all nuclear armed nations.  It is only going to amplify the danger to ALL Americans.

Defense Secretary Robert Gates stated Tuesday, April 6th, "that the administration reserves the right to make "adjustments" to the policy and that the document doesn't quite declare that the United States will never be the first to use a nuclear weapon."  "But for countries that don't have nuclear capabilities that are following the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, Gates said they need not fear the United States' still-vast nuclear stockpile."

He continues, "The United States pledges not to use or threaten to use nuclear weapons against (those countries)," Gates said -- even in the case of a biological or chemical attack. "

However, Gates said any country so bold as to launch such an attack on the United States "would face the prospect of a devastating conventional military response."

Obama released a written statement Tuesday calling the document a "significant step forward."

In a nutshell, we are going to be weak and defenseless. This document has just given the heads-up to terrorists or any volatile country to use biological weapons against the United States, to decimate us or completely destroy us and our military will be bound from using their most powerful weapon they have in their arsenal to defend this country.  We will be at the mercy of our executioners. And no one to protect or defend us.  Conventional weapons would be inadequate against biological weapons as Obama is fully aware.  His malevolence toward the United States is quite clear. 

A President’s oath of office is set by the Constitution: “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States and will to the best of my ability preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."


Article II, Section 4 of the Constitution says, "The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors."

According to Constitutional Lawyers, "High Crimes and Misdemeanors" are (1) real criminality -- breaking a law; (2) abuses of power; (3) "violation of public trust" as defined by Alexander Hamilton in the Federalist Papers. In 1970, then Representative Gerald R. Ford defined impeachable offenses as "whatever a majority of the House of Representatives considers it to be at a given moment in history." In the past Congress has issued Articles of Impeachment for acts in three general categories:

•Exceeding the constitutional bounds of the powers of the office.

•Behavior grossly incompatible with the proper function and purpose of the office.

•Employing the power of the office for an improper purpose or for personal gain

Doctor to Obama Supporters: Find Health Care 'Elsewhere'

From Fox News: 

A Florida doctor who opposes the new health care law posted a sign on his office door telling patients who voted for President Obama to get care "elsewhere," the Orlando Sentinel reported.

A Florida doctor who opposes the new health care law posted a sign on his office door telling patients who voted for President Obama to get care "elsewhere," the Orlando Sentinel reported.

The sign on Dr. Jack Cassell's door reads, "Changes to your health care begin right now. Not in four years," the Sentinel said.

Cassell, a urologist, told the newspaper that he's not turning anyone away.

"That would be unethical," he said. "But if they read the sign and turn the other way, so be it."

A registered Republican, Cassell is providing his patients with photocopies of a health-care timeline produced by Republican leaders that outlines "major provisions" in the health care law -- and he's placed a sign above the stack of copies that reads, "This is what the morons in Washington have done to your health. Take one, read it and vote out anyone who voted for it."

Cassell told the newspaper that a patient's politics wouldn't affect his care for them, but he added he would prefer not to treat people who support Obama.

"I can at least make a point," he said.

Okay, I know that it is a very profound weekend, but I could not resist when I heard about this story.  It is fantastic how this one doctor is standing up against the Obama machine.  We need to find more doctors that are willing to do just that.
