I attended a Breakfast where Sheriff Larry Dever From Cochise County Arizona was the featured speaker. He explained to us the real story on Illegal Immigration, not what the Government would like us to believe. The Sheriff gave us facts based on the statistics from LA County, Arizona,Texas and New Mexico. They are:
- 50% of gang members in LA are illegal aliens
- 53% of burglaries are done by illegal aliens
- 80% of outstanding warrants are for illegal aliens
- 56% of car thefts are done by illegal aliens
- His area has 87 miles of Border with Mexico and accounts for 50% of the captured Marijuana
- In the 5th Federal District in Texas, you must be caught 8 times before Federal Prosecutors will take you to trial.
- 17% of those captured have criminal records in the United States.
- The Colombians have moved into the Mexican Cartels and brought with them wholesale murder, kidnapping and torture. (Remember years ago we sent troops and money to help drive the Cartels out of Columbia)
Federal authorities claim to capture anywhere from 1 out of 4 to 1 out of 2.6 attemping to enter the US. The Sheriff has visited the on the ground agents who have equipment to monitor and call for help and capture. They claim the capture rate is 4-5% of those entering the US illegally. Think of what we are saying; 95-96% of those illegal aliens entering the US are successful. 17% of them already have US criminal records.
As far as the Border Fence the Government says is complete, 290 miles of a 2000 mile border have a Normandy type barrier fence in place. The rest has posts and barbed wire. He personally went to the Normandy style fence with a male and female between the age of 18 and 25. The male was able to scale the fence in 14 seconds and the female in 21 seconds. The Sheriff states, the only way we will have true border security is to put the Army on the Ground to monitor , capture and process Illegal Aliens. they would also have the fire power to deal with the drug cartels and gangs.
Who do you believe? The Government or the Sheriff?
2012 is coming !!!!!!!
