Immigration Invasion Billboards raise Controversy

 From ABC13.com:

houston.jpg The billboard’s message is simple — ‘stop the invasion.’ It’s the controversy surrounding it that is much more complicated.

Inside one Houston factory Mexican music plays in the background. The majority of the workers are Mexican American. Many of them have taken offense to a new billboard just outside their building. It’s one that has caught the attention of those on both sides of the immigration debate. The 14 by 48 foot sign at I-10 and Heights Boulevard reads “Stop the invasion, secure our borders.”

Not only is the billboards message clear but so is the “controversy” surrounding the message crystal clear. Our nation is at war with an enemy that doesn’t use a conventional means of wageing war. Securing our borders is a National Security issue it has absolutely nothing to do with race.

The groups US Border Watch and Grassfire.org paid for the billboard to be put up. Organizers say it’s an effort to inform people the country’s borders have become war zones.

“In the single month of June alone, 254 officers along the Laredo sector of Texas were assaulted,” said Curtis Collier with Border Watch. “That info has to get out. Our sign, links to the website will help get that info to the general public.”

From The Washington Times

For years we have seen individuals enter the country illegally,” said Sigifredo Gonzalez Jr., sheriff of Zapata County. “However, recently we feel that many of these persons are no longer entering the country to look for legitimate employment. We are now seeing that many of these persons are members of ruthless and violent gangs.”
    Sheriff Gonzalez’s testimony before the House International Relations subcommittee was part of a series of “field hearings” held across the country to gauge voter opinion on reforming the nation’s immigration laws. Yesterday’s hearing was held in Laredo, in Zapata County.
    “Some areas can accurately be described as a war zone,” panel Chairman Ed Royce, California Republican, told The Washington Times after touring the border near Laredo.
    Sheriff Gonzalez told members of the subcommittee that the number of illegal aliens from places other than Mexico — including countries on terrorist watch lists — caught crossing the border has more than quintupled in the past four years. Increasingly, he said, they try blending in to look like Mexicans crossing the border in search of honest work.

Curtailing crime is another aspect of securing our borders that those who advance an open border agenda conveniently overlook.  During a recent 3 week border security blitz in 5 Texas border couhnties, Val Verde County reported a 76 percent drop in major crimes compared to last year, and one barometer – losses to burglaries – dropped from $91,000 to $1,200 during the intensive law enforcement effort.

Securing our Borders has absolutely nothing to do with Race… It has everything to do with Security.
