The Open Border Page
Please spend some time here informing yourself of the realities of what's happening.
108 Border Patrol Officers have been killed by violent criminals coming here to "do the jobs most Americans won't do." (Source of total: U.S. Border Patrol Officer Memorial)
The photos below shows how easy it is in many sections to cross into the country. Are those the footprints of a terrorist, a drug smuggler, or just some hard working families? That's the problem, no one knows who they are or where they're from. While generous budgets are allotted for luxury projects such as going to Mars and massive social service programs, the back door to national security is left wide open. Literally millions have crossed in remote places such as this while our representatives have knowingly looked the other way. It's time for the businesses who have benefited from cheap labor and the government agencies who cater to illegal immigrants be shown "the back door" themselves so the interest and security of the United States citizens are represented first. Please view http://www.congressandimmigration.com/Border_Fence_Vote_09142006.htm to see who voted "against" securing the border, something that is unforgivable. In spite of the overwhelmingly Democratic vote "against" building a fence, the following quote is provided.
“Democrats are united that no matter how high the price, how heavy the burden,
or how fierce the foe, we will do everything necessary to protect the American
people,” said House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi. “Keeping America safe is
our first responsibility as elected officials. Democrats have a record of
achievement in national security and sound ideas about how to combat terrorism, change course toward success in Iraq, and protect the American people." Source: (Nancy Pelosi voted no on the Border Fence.)
This video clip demonstrates how our immigration controls are laughed at in other countries. It's likely this vehicle drove right across an open border section. http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=166875860388898961
This disturbing video shows illegal alien children freely crossing a US Border Patrol Checkpoint in Arizona to attend US public schools. School bus service, free breakfast and lunch programs and a full range of public services are provided these non-citizens. Since school budgets are based on attendance levels, it's unlikely the school district or their teachers union mind this at all. This same scenario is being repeated across the nation every day. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ala7jC4P558&eurl=
Please read the following report on the impact of illegal immigration and the national school system. http://www.fairus.org/site/PageServer?pagename=research_researchf6ad
ImmigrationCounters.com strongly condemns any discrimination or animosity towards innocent immigrant children yet exposes the public agencies that are allowing this problem to occur.
Department of Homeland Security
According to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) the following are the most common violations of United States immigration laws:
Federal Bureau of Investigation
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) handles suspected criminal activity, especially suspected terrorists, human traffickers, and sexual predators.
Health and Human Services
Illegal aliens may be illegally receiving Health and Human Services (HHS) benefits including Medicare, Medicaid, welfare and unemployment insurance, at both national and state levels.
Internal Revenue Service
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) pursues those who willfully and intentionally violate their known legal duty of voluntarily filing income tax returns and/or paying the correct amount of income, employment, or excise taxes.
Social Security Administration
The Social Security Administration (SSA) pursues reports of fraud, waste, and abuse within SSA's programs and operations. Of particular concern is fraudulent use of Social Security numbers.
Selective Service System
The Selective Service System (SSS) requires male illegal aliens residing in the United States who are 18 through 25 years of age to register. Some states require registration as a condition for state financial aid for school as well as for other benefits.
Recommended View: This chilling video exposes statements made by some of the leaders of the illegal alien movement, some of them are your elected officials and college leadership. It's unfortunate that these individuals are fostering division and anger in a country that traditionally welcomes legal immigration. Based on their statements they must have been sleeping during history class. The Mexican government "Treaty of Guadalupe" ceded the barren and undeveloped border land to America for $15M and forgave all the Mexican debt owed America. Here's a link to these historical facts; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Treaty_of_Guadalupe_Hildalgo . These individuals are trying to blur the lines between legal and illegal, to blur the lines of the borders and create a new voter base for themselves. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-LINtLZF__c

Illegal Immigrants, A Costly Problem: http://www.kotv.com/news/local/story/?id=121305
In 2004, the IRS got 7.9 million W-2s with names that didn't match a Social Security Number. More than half were from California, Texas, Florida and Illinois, states with large immigrant populations, leading experts to believe they likely represent the wages of illegal immigrants. http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2007/04/13/national/main2680010.shtml
