“The AG can at any time, and now with the help and cooperation of HSD and Ms. Napolitano, according to this code, send the military to defend our southern border. So what’s the problem? Americans getting kidnapped out of their states, murdered on their land and terrorized daily…..and you don’t see any reason to send our military down there to protect these people? “

Arizona: HB 1070 vs Goliath

Arizona bill HB 1070, a bill confirming the right of the state of Arizona to deal directly with illegal immigration, was immediately challenged by the DoJ.  The state was sued by the so-called [Justice Department] for infringing on what the DoJ claimed was a right reserved to the federal government, only.  In July of 2010, the DoJ filed suit against Arizona in an effort to strike down the law, effectively leaving the state defenseless against the onslaught of uncontrolled illegal immigration from Mexico coming into the state.

The murder of US citizens, kidnappings and terrorizing of communities along the Arizona/Mexico border, in fact across the entire border, while border patrol agents continue to be prosecuted for doing their jobs has exacerbated the already high tensions in these communities.

The one thing the DoJ and Attorney General Holder seem to have overlooked, is their own responsibility in this matter; but they need not worry.  The former US Code & Title 8, used to read that the AG and subsequently the Secretary of Homeland Security were charged with defending our borders, especially in the event of a mass influx of illegal immigrants.  This was the US Code until recently:

Title 8 Chapter 12: Subchapter 1103   1103. Powers and duties of the Secretary, the Under Secretary, and the Attorney General    

5) He shall have the power and duty to control and guard the boundaries and borders of the United States against the illegal entry of aliens and shall, in his discretion, appoint for that purpose such number of employees of the Service as to him shall appear necessary and proper.  

(10) In the event the Attorney General determines that an actual or imminent mass influx of aliens arriving off the coast of the United States, or near a land border, presents urgent circumstances requiring an immediate Federal response, the Attorney General may authorize any State or local law enforcement officer, with the consent of the head of the department, agency, or establishment under whose jurisdiction the individual is serving, to perform or exercise any of the powers, privileges, or duties conferred or imposed by this chapter or regulations issued there under upon officers or employees of the Service.
