Is Arizona Safe From Terrorists?

Re: Immigrant entrance.

Illegals used to come across the border from Mexico at San Diego and El Paso. California and Texas finally got smart and beefed up their border control.

Guess what --ow they come into Arizona at all kinds of places. We are so helpful we put water stations out for them to keep them alive to illegally enter Arizona. Result: stolen cars, home invasions, unlicensed drivers, and more, have dramatically increased. They can stand around street corners, or outside stores, intimidating our women, children and neighbors.

I'm told nearly 90 percent of U.S. population growth is immigrants and birth to immigrants. They know America is a good place to sneak into, as there doesn't seem to be such a word as deport. There doesn't seem to be any national security concerns on our Arizona borders either.

At a Hillsdale College seminar in February 2003, Michele Malkin gave these facts: Organ Pipe National Monument in southern Arizona is now considered one of the most dangerous federal parks in the nation. As many as 1,000 illegals can walk across Organ Pipe each day.

Bo Stone, an Organ Pipe Ranger, says we have caught people from China, Yemen, Pakistan, and, of course, Mexico coming through illegally. If 1,000 illegals can walk through the desert here, so can 1,000 terrorists.

Some 200,000 illegal border crossers, and 700,000 pounds of drugs were intercepted at Organ Pipe last year alone. If you think of all the illegals and drugs that were not caught, it is mind boggling to say the least.

Just think: A shoulder-fired missile launcher can be carried in a box or container about the size of a golf bag.

Is this safety in Arizona, USA?

Think about it, and start making yourself be heard. Send postcards, or make phone calls, to all your state politicians. Call President Bush at (202) 456-1111. If they are swamped with calls, they will soon get the message.
