Thanks, and I hope you enjoy berating honest members of this forum.

Like I said, nothing to see here folks. Just ignore

It might be of a little bit more concern to those people who live in border towns, in the same way that we ordinary Los Angeles residents fear gang drive-by shootings, not because we are targets but because gang bangers have such bad aim.

The best advice for AZ residents is to stay away from drug activity and stay away from illegal aliens and places that they frequent.
"stay away from illegal aliens and places that they frequent."

Good luck with that!

Watch "The First 48" on A&E and then you'll see why folks are bearing arms in PHX.

Default Border problems will continue!

Well, the problems in Phoenix is all because of porus borders. When is McCain going to get the money to help build this border fence? Oh, I forgot, that would be considered "Pork" and he doesn't bring home those things for the state.

So, the result of his inability to act, we have high crime rate and it will continue to rise because million get through each year.
Here just take a few minutes to review this Video.

YouTube - Breaking into the USA - Mexico

Yes it only four people, but Millions have passed this way. When is it going to stop? I say never! What we need to do is invade Mexico and take it over. They have lot of oil and great beaches. Plus, if we make it a large state, then we went from a 4,500 mile border to a 500 mile border down at Honduras.

We will never get rid of this problem until someone really stops and cares about the tax payers in Arizona. Is it Janet? NO! She didn't do anything while she was around. Is it MCain? NO! He has already to use that he doesn't bring home pork to help the state...as he laughs, while he gets a pay check. WHEN IS IT GOING TO STOP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's time to get rid of him and put someone in charge that will control the crime rate and fix the border.

The President last night talked about more money for schools and more money for healthcare. Here's my two cents.

Dear Mr. President.

If you want more money for schools and more money for healthcare. Then stop the illegals from using the schools and the healthcare system!

Your truly
Arizona Tax Payer.

The problems are caused by porous borders plus lack of any serious enforcement on employers hiring aliens. The aliens wouldn't come to America if they couldn't get work.

Well, for about $50.00 on the street, you can get a Social Security number and Green card. Once you have these, you can get a drivers license and a bank account.

Once you have these, you can buy a house, get a car and start a business....all for $50.00!

The number of illegals coming across the border is NOT an immigration, but an invasion.

When is it going to stop Mr. McCain? When a vigilanty starts taking care of this for you? Is that what you want?

When do we as tax payers start taking back the security of our state? Yes, I here you saying...we don't. But when the borders are so porus that anyone with a dirty nuke comes across this secure border (over the mountain range) and light one off. Is this when something will finally happen?

Wake up! It always seems to work like this. We sit back and train all the Saudi's with open arms and then they drive planes right into building and then we stop and say...Where did we go wrong?

Well, when the day comes when they light off that dirty bomb, then and only then will people in this state finally stop and fix the problem. Yes, McCain, that means you!

Just a thought. Our Founding Fathers during the day were called vigilante's, traitors, and the like.

For whatever it is worth: the illegal aliens are definitely thinner on the ground here compared to even late 2007. Between the employer sanctions law, Sheriff Joe as well as our swooning economy----------attitudes here are hardening against aiding and abetting the above.

PS: I self identify as a Liberal----------until gun rights and illegal immigration are mentioned then I turn hard right.

Timothy McVeigh used that line to justify his action in the OKC bombing.

It is nothing like the media makes it out to be. It is soooo exagerated. I feel very safe and yes there are drug dealers here and ect.. but they wont just randomly kidnap people and shoot any one they see. Just use common sense.. I actually feel safer in Phoenix and Mexico for that matter than in Detroit or St Louis.
