Bravo - Bravo - BRAVO!!!

More states, too, please!

Apparently, the people are being heard... too bad it took this long.

[[ Arizona ignored pleas for greater cooperation from Mexican President Vicente Fox to become the second US state to declare a state of emergency on its border due to rising illegal immigration, violence and smuggling.

Four days after New Mexico declared a 90 day state of emergency for border areas, Arizona did the same for its four counties on the Mexican frontier, citing uncontrolled illegal immigration.

"The federal government has to secure our border, and the health and safety of all Arizonans is threatened daily by violent gangs, coyotes (human traffickers) and other dangerous criminals," said Arizona governor Janet Napolitano in a statement.

Mexico's president chimes in:

[[ Mexican President Fox responded Tuesday to the moves by the two US governors with calls for greater cooperation over border problems.

He exhorted the United States to coordinate with Mexico to resolve border problems.

"Instead of pointing fingers, let's have proposals; instead of each side working by itself, let's work together; only like this will we be able to win," Fox said.

Allow me to translate that: "Please do not do this. Illegal immigration into the United States is the only way our corrupt government can stay afloat and continue in power. Without it, we will be expected to actually take care of our own people."

Good for Arizona!

You are right. This guy is going to do nothing to keep the borders closed and HIS people out of the U.S. illegally. In fact, he pushes it; bring money to his country. I wish the government would wise up, and really do something to stop all the infiltrating of illegals into our country! Who knows who/with what is coming into our country, via Mexico! I used to think Miami was the breeding ground for illegals, but you hardly ever hear of them anymore!
