I used to watch TV news and yell at the box. Now I jump up from the couch, sit at the computer and begin to type laughing maniacally saying "Wait until they read this." It's more fun than squashing tadpoles

Government Watching the Minutemen Instead of the Border

This image by Jay D. Dyson can be seen here
There is one issue more pressing than watching our border and enforcing our immigration laws according to the federal government. It is monitoring the Minutemen while they watch our border to help enforce our immigration laws. They want to reassure the Mexican government that illegal immigrant's rights are being protected. This is of course at the expense of the citizen's rights and the countries sovereignty.

According to three documents on the Mexican Secretary of Foreign Relations Web site, the U.S. Border Patrol is to notify the Mexican government as to the location of Minutemen and other civilian border patrol groups when they participate in apprehending illegal immigrants -- and if and when violence is used against border crossers.

A U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesman confirmed the notification process, describing it as a standard procedure meant to reassure the Mexican government that migrants' rights are being observed...

Border Patrol agents interviewed by the Daily Bulletin said they have been asked to report to sector headquarters the location of all civilian volunteer groups, but to not file the groups' names in reports if they spot illegal immigrants.

"Last year an internal memo notified all agents not to give credit to Minuteman volunteers or others who call in sightings of illegal aliens," said one agent, who spoke on the condition he not be identified. "We were told to list it as a citizen call and leave it at that. Many times, we were told not to go out to Minuteman calls."

The government is not just alerting the Mexican government to the actions of the Minutemen on the border, but are giving them information on all their activities throughout the nation.

This Report does not report information told to the MCDC media offices that the Border Patrol chiefs have also been passing along intelligence reports to the government of Mexico on the activities of Minutemen not only at the borders, but in locations such as Utah, Nevada, Illinois, Massachusetts and Tennessee. Perhaps a follow-up story is coming tomorrow or an over zealous editor took the info out?

Part of a report distributed last August to the Mexican government from Border Patrol bureaucrats read over the phone to the MCDC media offices contained not only numbers (estimated chapter membership) of Minutemen in Illinois, but a statement on their activities and that they didn't seem to know any politicians there, indicating that the Illinois Minutemen didn't yet have any political clout.

That is not a report on the location of Minutemen at the border, but political intelligence from our government to a foreign nation about the activities of American citizens petitioning our own government for redress of grievances.

Instead of allocating resources to control the border at it is required to do, the federal government uses them to monitor the citizens who stand in the breach because the government won't. People asked me why I left the Republican Party 8 years ago. It is because of this kind of stupid non sense where they just abandon their principles for some pragmatic cause that I just stopped giving my time and money to the party. So this is nothing new.

The government as a whole is more concerned over the rest of the world than they are the interests of our nation. They are willing to damage our economy to let Mexico use it as a safety valve for their pathetic socialist economy that is struggling to function under the massive corruption of their politicians. Even NAFTA was insufficient for their economy to get going because their political leaders just suck it dry so they can buy votes with social spending. Sounds familiar don't it.

The congressional elections are looming and the Republicans are scratching their heads over how to communicate to the voter that the Democrats are worse than they are. That may be true to a point, but the distinction is becoming harder to make. They would do themselves and the nation a favor if they would just stick to simple stuff like keeping spending down, and protecting the country. I'm afraid they've become too sophisticated for that.
