One Reporter's Opinion @ Illegal Alien Invasion Update

Friday, 27 May 2005 12:00 AM

We know of the Herculean efforts of the Minutemen and, more recently, the Friends of the Border Patrol. A proposed ballot measure would establish a new state police agency, the California Border Police, that would patrol the border and crack down on businesses that hire illegal immigrants. The agency would be created by the California Border Police Act and is being pushed by California State Senator Ray Haynes and Rescue California, a group advocating tougher border enforcement.

All of these organizations and many more are performing as modern-day Paul Reveres: "The invaders are coming!"

These past few days Congressman Tom Tancredo, R-Colo., has called for the resignation of Michael Nicely, agent in charge of the Tucson sector of the Border Patrol, after a dozen Border Patrol agents confirmed that he ordered them to reduce the number of arrests of illegal aliens crossing the border. Eight congressmen signed Tancredo's letter to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff calling for Nicely's resignation.

Ten congressmen signed a separate letter by Tancredo, which calls for the House Judiciary Committee to initiate an investigation into the "stand down" orders. "Any government official that seeks to thwart the law is derelict in his duty to the American people. Mr. Nicely must take responsibility for his actions and turn over his post to someone who is willing to enforce the law," says Tancredo.

A dozen Border Patrol agents told the Washington Times they had been instructed "to 'stand down' from arresting illegal aliens near where Minutemen protesters had patrolled the border in April." The agents understood that an increase in arrests would in fact prove the effectiveness of extra manpower on the border and would credit the Minutemen's approach. Several sources, including the president of the National Border Patrol Council, have confirmed this report.

Tancredo has called for a congressional investigation into this matter. In a post-9/11 world, it is critical that we send the message that we are serious about border security. "A congressional investigation must get to the bottom of such troubling and dangerous practices," says Congressman Tancredo. "If Mr. Nicely was acting on orders from officials higher up in the border bureaucracy, more heads should roll. Congress must exercise more active oversight of our border security."

So, there you have it! The Minutemen, Friends of the Border Patrol, and now a proposed new state police agency known as the California Border Police. It's only the beginning, my friends. Patriotic citizens nationwide are determined to bring a halt to this invasion by illegal aliens and the violation of our nation's sovereignty.

At this moment, patriots across America are gathering in Las Vegas under the leadership of Mark Edwards, who shouts, "It's time to wake up, America!" Mark has long been informing Americans about the illegal alien invasion on his "Wake Up America" radio show on KDWN, Las Vegas, Nevada. (See

Mark Edwards, as one Marine to another: "Semper Fi!" And as my friend Ezola Foster says: "It's a sad day in America when the lawmakers side with the lawbreakers AGAINST the law-abiding citizens."
