1. Phoenix, Arizona has been a â€œsanctuary cityâ€ for years. As a result, chaos reigns supreme.
“The crime caused by these illegal immigrants is completely out of control,” one officer told me this week. “The entire Maryvale area is a war zone due to illegal immigration. Kidnappings are commonplace in the illegal community. Drop houses are everywhere. These crimes tie up police resources all the time and cause our citizens to have to wait hours for police services.”
The two references below tell the whole story:
Phoenix Business Journal: Police Killing Puts Focus on Illegal Immigrant Crime
Monday’s murder of a Phoenix police officer by an illegal immigrant from Mexico has heightened debate over undocumented residents and crime.
Phoenix Police officer Nick Erlie was shot and killed by Erik Jovani Martinez, an illegal who previously was deported and had an arrest warrant. Martinez was shot and killed by police after taking a hostage. He had been arrested eight times.
Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon said the incident stems from the federal government’s failure to secure the border….

For days now and nights, they’ve been coming to Pinchot Avenue. Children and their parents, citizens and immigrants, old soldiers and first-graders who feel this loss in a personal way.
And police. Since Tuesday, they’ve kept watch over this hallowed ground as people have come. At all hours they have come, and from across the state. From every walk of life they have come to stand before the spot where a brave man died.
Everyone, that is, but the ones who need to stand there the most.
They’re in Washington, running the country and doing such a fine job of it. I wonder if they’ve noticed the extra blood on their hands this week.
Phoenix Officer Nick Erfle was killed Tuesday morning by an illegal immigrant who was brought here as a baby, a thug who by the age of 22 had amassed an impressive record of gang activity, drug use, thievery and violence. One who was deported last year but was back within weeks, right about the time our leaders in Washington were making speeches about the need to get control of the border.
One year and one dead cop later, they are still making speeches….
2. Tom DeWeese really lays it out in this article. Itâ€™s an excellent summary on how illegal immigration is hurting our country and will eventually destroy it if it is not stopped. He also writes about what is going on locally in various communities to stop the invasion. A great read.
Tom DeWeese: Why Illegal Immigration is a Threat to US
….Illegal immigration is not just a border issue. It is a national issue affecting every large city and almost every small town. It must be understood that illegal immigration is not just a matter of some unhappy peasants hoping to seek a better life. It is a $300 billion a year industry, combining the interests of multinational corporations with those of drug cartels and Latino street gangs. Caught in between are American communities and the American way of life. Some cities, especially those along the points of entry at the border have become dangerous no-mans lands, where no property is safe, no American citizen is able to leave their home unarmed and some politicians turn a blind eye as they profit under the table. As a result American civilization is beginning to break down. That is why so many Americans refuse to back down on the issue, continuing to demand a crack down, no matter what name calling they must endure….
