A call to arms

Volunteers in California are one line in the fight against immigration, and have been hitting the streets across California to start gathering the nearly 600,000 signatures of registered voters that will be required by Dec. 12 to put the border police measure on the June 2006 ballot. According to the initiative, officers would be empowered to make arrests and would then transfer the suspects to federal immigration authorities. Generally speaking, the people voting in a primary are more conservative than in a general election, and a more conservative electorate could boost the measure's chances.

George Andrews, executive director for the California Border Police Initiative in Sacramento has been a major driving force for the proposed initiative. Another major contributor is Assemblyman Ray Haynes, who says he is fed up with the droves of people hopping the international border and entering the United States from Mexico illegally. Estimates suggest as many as 10 million people are in the United States illegally, 3 million of them in California. Haynes is proposing to create a state border force of 2,000 to 3,000 agents that would operate on an annual budget ranging from $200 million to $300 million. If passed by voters, the agency could be up and running by the end of next year, he said.

The federal government is not protecting our border and I am tired of waiting for congress to do anything about it. So I think it's time that we stop hoping for the government to enforce the law, and do it ourselves. Not only do we have to protect ourselves from the invasion of illegal immigrants, we also have to protect ourselves from the Mexican army and government supported smugglers.

When the founding fathers where writing the Bill of Rights a clear picture was given of what a citizen could do. The very first right a citizen has is the freedom of speech. That is how I am able to communicate with you today. In some countries like: Iran, Syria, North Korea, Vietnam, Russia, China, Mexico, Cuba, Venezuela; to name a few, have no protection of speech, so citizens are afraid to speak against the government. The next and very important able given to citizens was the right to a militia. The Minutemen, founded by person x, is a good example of a militia that is guaranteed by the Bill of Rights. This is not something that can be taken lightly or brushed away. If we do not demand access to our rights, they will be taken away.

That is why I am calling every person I can into action. Every able body that can carry a firearm needs to mass on the southern border and stop the incursions by foreign powers. Especially since Mexicans are not the only nationality that is illegally crossing the border. Iranians, Syrians, Lebanese, and Palestinians, have been seen crossing the border. Why does a citizen have to wait for an event to happen before it can see its military spring into action?
