You'll excuse me for a

You'll excuse me for a moment if I slip in under the radar and post an article I think worthy of notice.

If you haven't been to World Net Daily lately to browse their always informative stories I invite you to take a further look into this one.

Al-Jazeera to look at open U.S. border

The Arab TV news network criticized by the new Iraqi government and others for its anti-American bias and willingness to carry the messages of terrorist organizations, including al-Qaida, is headed for the U.S.-Mexico border to document how easy it is to enter America illegally.
That's right folks, your friendly America Hating news agency plans to run stories in extremist-ville about how ummm...."Well" we protect our southern borders. Al-Jazeera even went so far as to call up Chris Simcox (one of the founders of the Minuteman Project) for his take on the matter to which he said:

"The group has been denied requests for interviews by Minuteman Civil Defense Corps organizers but they still insist on filming the groups’ activities along with the rest of the media during a July 4th weekend mission near Arivaca, Arizona," said Simcox.

Simcox has contacted the offices of Arizona's two Republican U.S. senators – John McCain and Jon Kyl – to invite them to do interviews with al Jazeera, "so perhaps they can explain to the viewers of this news outlet just how secure America's borders really are."

"The offices of the Arizona members of the United States House of Representatives will also be contacted to alert them to the presence and the intent by the al-Jazeera news crew to film the lack of security along the U.S. border with Mexico," said Simcox. "The office of the Department of Homeland Security will also be notified. The Minuteman Civil Defense Corps also wonders just what DHS would tell al-Jazeera about the condition of our border security."

I know that Jody doesn't write alot about immigration policies, or my beloved saved the Hubble campaigns which is why I always have. Illegal Immigration reform isn't about keeping people out of this country who want to live here legally, but it's about problems and the people who exploit them and how much they damage our economy, national security, and foreign policy decisions. How much more time do we need to leave our borders open and porous for us to have another 9/11? While I am certain most illegals crossing the borders are doing so to get jobs, but they are still illegal, and law violators, and thus not making it any easier on those law abiding immigrants who just want a better life and are willing to make the extra effort to do so with a clear conscience.
