   Early last week the Governor of New Mexico, Bill Richardson, announced he was officially running for the Democrat party nomination for the office of President of the United States. The same week the sheriff of the city he presides overin New Mexico, Santa Fe,the sheriff announced that they would be hiring Mexican Nationals for their Capitol police force! You read it correctly, not legal Mexican Americans, but Mexican citizens. In this way, the new Mexican (not US) police officers can ensure that illegal immigrants are given the special privileges the anarchistic hordes have decided they deserve. And, New Mexico has begun the secession from the US, in order to no longer have to adhere to its pesky laws.
Considering US Senators and Congressional members’ penchant for flouting any and all US immigration laws, why shouldn't’t individual states begin doing the same? Santa Fe Police Sgt. Marvin Paulk reinforced the “we don’t need no stinkin’ immigration laws” attitude, when he stated: “I know that there are state and federal laws that prohibit hiring officers who aren't U.S. citizens, but I think that we should consider the possibility of changing these rules!" Why not? Our "Conservative President made sure that a provision placed within the most recent iteration of the Immigration Bill, drafted by Senator Kennedy, was removed. This provision would have required that illegals had to pay back taxes before they were granted their amnesty papers for U.S. citizenship. The reason the White House gave for his insistence for the removal was it would be too difficult to determine who owed back taxes.? I guess he forgot about the tens of thousands of public employees who "work" to make sure the rest of us legal 250 million pay the taxes that are due. The strain of 12-20 million more would be too much for these poor over worked public employees! On this Memorial Day weekend when most Americans remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice to defend and protect Our Constitution. It appears too many of our public officials are making a mockery of their sacrifice. Shame on them!
