Dear Readers: My husband Horemheb and I were following the news about the violent protests of open-border extremists following the passage of the new Arizona immigration law — that 60% of Americans and 70% of Arizonans support. Michelle Malkin has a post containing pictures of these protesters — yet, the mainstream media is silent about denouncing them “as angry, racist extremists”.
Arizona’s Senator John McCain, during one of his finest moments of the 2008 Presidential Campaign, said “Today we are all Georgians” to show solidarity with that country — then being bullied by the Russians. Today, Arizona and many other states, including my own California, are undergoing another type of invasion. This time, Arizona is fighting back.
Today, we are all Arizonans.
Please contact Governor Jan Brewer to voice your support. She has got to know — NOW — that her fellow Americans (WHO FULLY SUPPORT LEGAL IMMIGRATION) have her back.

What is especially disconcerting to me as a new Catholic is that Los Angeles Cardinal Mahony decided to chime-in, deriding the new state law geared to protect is border and the sovereignty of the United States as: “German Nazi and Russian Communist techniques.” I wonder what he says, then, about Mexico’s own aggressive policies against Southern American illegal immigrants crossing though its southern border. And talk about double-standard if an American “illegal” tries to get free government services in Mexico!
According to Mexican immigration law, only foreigners having the money necessary to support themselves and their dependents are permitted inside Mexico. Foreigners who violate immigration laws, including forgery of papers, working without a permit, or overstaying their visas, are routinely and severely punished, often by summary deportation, but sometimes by lengthy prison terms. Illegal immigration is a felony in Mexico, with violators subject to two-year prison sentences. Even airlines and other transportation companies carrying illegal immigrants into Mexico are fined.
And I have news for GOP-chair Michael Steel — the new Arizona law is family-protection based! Enforcement of sane border policies will protect American families from the loss of beloved members — such as the family of rancher Robert Krentz, killed by an illegal immigrant.
One of the key factors in the extreme left’s response to the Arizona law AND the upcoming amnesty battle (which is likely to occur between Memorial Day and July 4th) is that the term “racist” has lost its sting. It has been bandied about so trivially by opponents to the Tea Parties, and shown to be a vile lie by Andrew Breitbart, that open-borders advocates will find that we border-enforcement supporters will remain undeterred during the next few months.
