The four southwestern states that border Mexico have been experiencing the flood of illegal immigration and drug trafficking. Millions of illegal aliens pour over the border that at times looks like shoppers on Black Friday.
When President Obama stopped enforcing the federal immigration laws, some of the states felt they had to take action into their own hands. One such state was Arizona, which passed SB 70 in an effort to crack down on illegals and illegal drugs crossing into the state. The law was challenged and went all the way to the US Supreme Court, where they upheld most of the law, but did strike down part of it.
Since then, the federal government has done virtually nothing to secure our international border with Mexico. Ranchers and citizens along the border are constantly reporting the dangers of living in the area. Some ranchers say that they encounter illegals almost on a daily basis and a number of them are armed and dangerous. Many homes have been burglarized and cattle have been poached. Tons of littler have been left behind by the flood if illegals crossing into the country.
Being concerned for the safety of her state and citizens, Gov. Jan Brewer recently took a tour of the Arizona-Mexico border and saw for herself the dangers of an unsecured border. In a news interview, she said:
“I was just down there last week.”
“I was with the National Guard. I was in a Blackhawk. I saw them on the other side, the drug cartels, ready to come across in the middle of the night. It is not secure.”
“The ranchers will tell you, if you sit down and talk to them, that they’re fearful, that the border patrol is too far north.”
“They need to get closer to the border because they let them go so far, and then they just sort of blend in, and they’re destroying their land and destroying their cattle, they’re destroying their water.”
“They’re frustrated. And I believe that until the ranchers, law enforcement, is satisfied and they tell us that this border is secured, there’s not going to be a whole lot of movement.”
And what is Obama’s response? Let’s give the illegals a path to citizenship. He is doing nothing to stop the flow of drugs and illegals. When the states try to take action because Obama won’t, he takes them to court to block their efforts to secure their borders and protect US citizens. Brewer believes that any form of immigration reform will stall until the border problem is first resolved.
In all honesty, Obama’s flagrant disregard for US law and national security borders on treason. Instead of deporting the millions of illegals, he is giving aide to them, which according to Article 3, Section 3 of the US Constitution:
“Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.”
Obama is giving aid and comfort to not only millions of illegal aliens, but also to the drug cartels that are crossing the border on a daily basis. His failure to secure the border, knowing that this illegal trafficking is occurring on a daily basis, is rendering aid and comfort to an enemy.
I truly believe that Gov. Jan Brewer and AZ Attorney General Tom Horne should file charges of treason against President Obama and US Attorney General Eric Holder for failing to uphold US immigration laws and failure to secure our international borders. I suspect it will take this type of drastic action to get Congress to take action against them.
