For you folks in California and New York who have no clue and yet are ready to declare war on the good folks in Arizona for defending their state from illegal aliens, maybe you should figure out which side you’re on before shooting your mouths off. I’m sorry; Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano claims there’s no problem with illegal aliens along our southern border ; Bill Clinton never told a lie and the check's in the mail, yeah, right.
I read where a federal judge in New York awarded an illegal alien $145,000 because he was held past the two day limit and never picked up by ICE to be deported. He has a lengthy criminal record according to police but was permitted to post bond and then skipped out on his court date after having been arrested with crack cocaine in his pocket. Did they have to give him his illegal drugs back or did the federal judge use them prior to handing out taxpayer money to an illegal alien; who said crime doesn’t pay?
Why bother explaining important issues to folks in California or New York; go back to your latte, this has nothing to do with you anyway. Bail out money from more responsible states is on the way because you both are too big to fail.
I received the below information from a respected friend which reportedly came from Rangers and law enforcement with first hand knowledge of the incident. As you know, one of the local ranchers was murdered in Douglas last month. His funeral was on April 10th. You decide whether or not it should have been reported in the media.
“Yesterday afternoon I talked to another rancher near us who is a friend of ours and whose great grandfather started their ranch here in 1880. These are good people. He told me what really happened out at the Krentz ranch and what you won't read in the papers. The Border Patrol is afraid of starting a small war between civilians here and the drug cartels in Mexico .
Bob Krentz was checking his water like he does every evening and came upon an illegal who was lying on the ground telling him he was sick. Bob called the Border Patrol and asked for a medical helicopter evac. As he turned to go back to his ATV he was shot in the side. The round came from down and angled up so they know the shooter was on the ground. Bob's firearm was in the ATV so he had no chance. Wounded he called the Cochise County Sherriff and asked for help. Bleeding in the lungs he called his brother but the line was bad so he called his wife but again the line was bad.
Several ranchers heard the radio call and drove to his location. Bob was dead by this time. The ranchers tracked the shooter 8 miles back towards Mexico and cornered him in a brushy draw. This was all at night. The Sherriff and Border Patrol arrived and told them not to go down and engage the murderer. They went around to the back side and if you can believe it the assassin managed to get by a BP helicopter and a Sherriff's posse and back to Mexico. So much for professional help when you need it.
One week before the murder Bob and his brother Phil (who I shoot with) hauled a huge quantity of drugs off the ranch that they found in trucks. One week before that a rancher near Naco did the same thing. Two nights later gangs broke into his ranch house and beat him and his wife and told them that if they touched any drugs they found they would come back and kill them. The ranchers here deal with cut fences and haul drug deliveries off their ranches all the time. What ranchers think is that the drug cartels beat the one rancher and shot Bob because they wanted to send a message. Bob always gave food and water to illegals and so they think they sent the assassin to pose as an illegal who was hungry and thirsty knowing it would catch Bob off guard.
What is going on down here is NOT being reported. You need to tell people how bad it is along the border. Texas is worse. Near El Paso it's in a state of war. 5000 people were killed in Ciudad Juarez last year and it's over 2000 so far this year. Gun sales down here are through the roof and I get emails from people wanting firearms training.
Something has to be done but I don't hold out much hope. These gangs have groups in almost every city in the US. This is serious business. The Barrio Azteca and their sub gangs are like Mexican Corporations and organized extremely well. If this doesn't get dealt with down here you guys will deal with it on your streets.”
