USBP Overview, Part 9
Here's a synopsis of the senator's remarks:
On June 2, Senator John McCain rolled out his
defense of amnesty on his campaign trail in Le Mars, Iowa. Responding
to a question about why we must give all illegal aliens amnesty,
McCain delivered the following:
“In case you hadn’t noticed, the thousands of
people who have been relegated to ghettos have risen up and burned
cars in France,” McCain said. “They’ve got huge
problems in France. They have tremendous problems. The police
can’t even go into certain areas in the suburbs of Paris.
I don’t want that in the suburbs of America.”
our federal politicians seek votes from anyone so they
can stay in office, America's cities are becoming desperate to
stop the rampaging violence. Even isolated cities like Phoenix,
Arizona are taking independent action to save themselves. This

The United States Border Patrol must make do
with less than 14,000 men and women for all of our borders.
What's worse is that the Border Patrol stands helpless and nearly
unarmed to counter the threat.
Mexican Army troops now guard drug convoys crossing our border.
Today "Amnesty" is the catch word.
Under the 1848
Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, the United States is obligated
to secure our border with Mexico. More than 68 years later we
still had not lived up to our treaty obligations to secure our
border. It was that attack on America in 1916 that caused us to
realize our borders were not safe.
It was that attack on America in 1916 that started
the political process to form a small band of brothers that remain
today The United States Border Patrol.
Our flag of red, white and blue, with a field
of stars, represents a country that has given nearly a million
men for its protection. The only men and women who protect our
borders -- and thus our very Homeland itself -- and the priceless
hopes and dreams of those million men who gave their lives for
us -- are the men and women of the United States Border Patrol.
This ..... is their story:
