Re: “The Skinny

This just says it all. And somehow ABC covered it.

They must be suffering from Grijalva Fatigue.

Re: “The Skinny

You can thank Obama...and yourselves.

All the Republicans needed to win another election is to give a Democrat a chance to lead.

What a mess he has created. Next time try to find somebody with some experience. Unlike Hillary. She owns this middle eastern mess along with BHO. It's theirs.

Re: “The Skinny

President Obama believes that those who violate our laws on a daily basis should feel comfortable and safe, rather be fearful of being detained and deported. Who does he represent, the criminal or the taxpayer victims? Outside of breaking the law in the first place, large numbers commit crimes once arriving here. A multitude of illegal alien drunk drivers, mow down innocent Americans on our highways. The hundreds of thousands incarcerated within our prison system, which I suggest should be isolated on an island, not dissimilar to Australia’s Christmas Island compound? Why shouldn’t foreign nationals breaking our laws be looking over their shoulder, staying in the shadows, NOT admit they are criminals by applying for driver’s licenses. What happens in the future when honest government is back and those DMV records are used to prove they are here illegally—and they signed a document to admit it.

Once the Senate and House is back in the hands of an ethical and I hope a less corrupted government, taxpayers should demand that ALL illegal aliens legitimized by Obamas inept associates that ALL his executive orders are reversed and the data bases for illegally-sponsored drivers licensing, federal IRS special ITIN tax refund numbers are checked and state agencies, who conspired against the Rule of Law held accountable. Even Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) who refused to investigate Child Tax Credits, given the parents illegal aliens of over a. 4 Billion of dollars in reimbursements

“Obama said that in the “absence of congressional action,” he intends to “take action” to increase resources on the border, upgrade “how we process these cases and that we find a way to encourage legal immigration and give people some path so they can start paying taxes, pay a fine, and learn English.” He asserted that it is important that they not have to “look over their shoulder but be legal since they’ve been living here for quite some time.” If these so called penalties are anything like the lax processing after the 1986 Amnesty, then we really in serious trouble.

What part of illegal does this former attorney not understand? Is this corrupt administration going to secretly use the reorganization of ACORN to register--alive or dead people—felons, illegal aliens to vote in the midterms. Are the Liberal progressives going to bus their crowds from another county or a close state to vote illegally?

According to Texas rancher Cuban “Rusty” Monsees, Mexican drug cartel members are wreaking havoc on the ranches near the border and using death threats and textbook intimidation to drive ranchers off their land. Read the whole story on

In an interview with Oathkeepers, Monsees revealed:
“We get kids. We get adults. The cartel is bringing across, importing people from as far away as the Mediterranean. I’ve talked to agents and they picked up some characters from Somalia, Iran, Iraq, Syria… anything that you can think of these agents has to deal with.”
It gets worse: in the same in interview, Rob, an Oathkeeper who has come to help protect Rusty and his ranch from the invaders, claimed that Border Patrol has captured wanted terrorists, but have been unable to release that information to the vulnerable public. Rob explained,
“[They] had six Middle Eastern males on Rusty’s property [which Border Patrol was able to catch] … all I know is they were Muslim. I wasn’t told a whole lot of information about it. I do know they had told me they had caught eleven of the same group, the week prior to that, that had been on our United States terrorist wanted list [for acts against the United States] – not watch, but wanted list. And this is the kind of stuff that they are not releasing to the public; they’re not allowed to release it.”
Rob continued,
“They were caught and they were turned over to Homeland Security, and everything pretty much disappeared like what Rusty was saying. None of that is any public information or anything like that, so they don’t want it to be public. [The BP is not allowed to tell anyone that known terrorists are coming across the border]. They aren’t allowed to speak about it. The only thing we [the American public] hear about is women and kids… and when they make huge drug busts, which are what we hear about. We don’t hear about the gang-bangers coming across, we don’t hear about the terrorists coming across. We don’t hear about the violence going down on the border. I had a rancher call me last week, and begging for help on 15,000 acres. He had been moved off his ranch because he doesn’t feel safe with his family there. He’s been shot at and threatened. We don’t hear that [on the news].”

MOST DOMINANT ISSUE BEING AVOIDED: Refresh the 700 mile, 2006 Secure Fence Act and build the double layer fencing, complete with concertina razor wire. Hundreds of miles are vacant of any barrier. It was killed by prior Republican Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison of Texas by adding a non-escapable amendment to the 2006 bill. Whereas giving complete control to Homeland Security, ruling out any funds to deliver the 700 miles of two fences, separated by an all weather track way. An in between no-mans land where illegal aliens would be caught and detained for immediate deportation. No wonder we are being invaded, without little or no deterrent. Enforcement Laws of US Border Patrol has been restrained by Obamas orders.

1) Secure our borders.
2) End amnesties.
3) Mandate E-Verify Or a National ID card
4) Abolish rewards for illegal aliens.
5) Toughen interior enforcement.
6) Amend birthright citizenship.
7) Conclude chain migration.
8) Purge refugee and visa fraud.
9) Eliminate unnecessary worker visas.
10) Remove visa lottery.
11) End visa overstays

All we have seen from this present Administration is laws being intentionally disregarded, undermined that have been the identified with the Rule of Law, our sovereignty and the US. What we have suffered under Obama is Constitution upheaval. Comprehensive Reform--Amnesty...IRS borders...deliberate bypassing of and furious weapons to Mexico—cutting back on our military and the failure of National Security. America is a free country and we must fight back against these overreaching agencies. In California Governor Jerry Brown stated nearly 30% of CA Kids Illegal or ‘Don’t Speak English’

IF YOU ARE ANXIOUS ABOUT YOUR COUNTRY UNDER OBAMA IMPERIAL RULE AND HIS PAWNS check this site that has the phone Numbers and Mailing Addresses of Members of Congress at: www.contactingthecongress/ to stipulate an end to illegal immigration, the dismantling of our laws, sovereignty, citizen rights and even our military is being cut back, which we frantically need for protection against our enemies foreign an domestic. Illegal Immigration is rapidly becoming the top precedence for Americans, because they see its impact on the barren economy and lost jobs. Large corporations and big business are laying-off birthright, naturalized citizens and green card holders, making an avenue for lower paid illegal aliens. This is the number for the central switchboard for every member of Congress to address your objections at 800-224-3121.

Re: “The Skinny

obama will do what's best for obama when it's time for obama. And, the decision will come down when he's ready, not before. The prez is tone deaf. Once you realize that, the rest is easy, then you will stop yelling at your TVs

Re: “The Skinny

Who are Grigalva and obamantion and how are they traitors? The House leadership and Senate Republicans are the real traitors and ought to repay the salaries they clearly did not earn while wasting the last four years on meaningless votes, obstruction and stonewalling.

"But it's going to be more sustainable and more effective if the public understands what the facts are on immigration."

The facts are business wants cheap labor, and the 1% want cheap nannies and working Americans can just bend over and take it.

The facts are business wants cheap labor, rich media companies want cheap nannies, and working Americans get to just bend over and take it.

Re: “The Skinny

I'm hoping that the local celebrities aren't taking the 'ice bucket challenge' out of ignorance and a need to feel trendy. The ALS industry admits to funding vivisection, but details as to the exact kinds of experiments are lacking. All I've seen is a 'trust us' position from them and an assurance that the vivisections adhere to "National Institutes of Health guidelines".

Those 'guidelines' amount to NOTHING. Literally ANYTHING can and is being done to animals in laboratories and the ONLY limits are the imagination of the vivisector and how deft he/she is at gaming the system out of some of the BILLIONS of dollars that their fellow vivisectionists lavish upon them.

This whole ALS Challenge has gotten out of control.

Another death reported:

Maybe our elected officials should stop promoting it.

Re: “The Skinny

I would like to hope that voters in Marana, Oro Valley and the Catalina Foothills, and a few on the western edge of the Tanque Verde Valley, are shaking their heads at each and every instance of their chosen Supervisor's antics and promising themselves that in 2016 they'll vote for Anyone But Ally. Meanwhile, Ally, why not sit back in silence, observe Ray Carroll at work, and try to comprehend how an intelligent Republican can be of service to constituents and to all of Pima County?

Re: “The Skinny

Barber talks tough on immigration, but he votes with Grijalva every time.
I hate the idea of a nimrod Republican getting that seat, but will any one defend American workers?
Not McSally. She's with the cheap-labor industry side of the Republican party. But she at least might not vote with Grijalva every time.

Re: “The Skinny

The timing of Brewer's endorsement might be perplexing if there were any evidence that voters return early ballots the same day they arrive in the mail. To the contrary, there is evidence that the recurring problems with counting the Maricopa County vote come from the practice of voters to wait until Election Day to drop off their ballots at polling places.

The Brewer/Smith strategy seems to be based on the theory that the last endorsement voters hear is the one they will remember. Or let's just call it the Smith strategy: Brewer isn't that smart, but Smith is.

Prediction for this horse race: Win Smith; Place Ducey; Show Jones.

And let me complete the loop for you. Being hispanic, I reject the notion that a public school teacher should be teaching your child about your heritage.

Are their parents too busy?
