So our "El Marmotito" ( the little woodchuck) would suggest that the privatized lands shall be the exclusive right of the Mexican Drug Cartels while insisting the BP be prohibited access .... I think an audit of campaign contributions is in order here ... and folks, you do realize the pudgy little rodent is aiming for the Secretary of Interior position, which Salazar has already posted intentions of vacating ... now there is a night mare in the making.
Well Masterrogue666, he would also consider totally open borders acceptable besides amnesty, or a reversal of the The Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, and everyone of European ancestry going back to Europe. Other than that, he's happy to be an American.
Raul: Almost forgot. If Border Patrol isn't permitted to go certain locations, then it stands to reason that the drug/human traffic cartels will use those avenues.
Tell me Raul, WHAT IS ACCEPTABLE to you, BESIDES AMNESTY for MILLIONS OF CRIMINALS?
"but only because the water, air and environments of border communities will be so degraded, no one will want to come here,” said Rep. Raul Grijalva, D-Tucson." -- Gee, Raul, what about the TONS OF GARBAGE LEFT BY ILLEGAL ALIENS on their northward bound trip? What about that ECOLOGICAL DAMAGE CAUSED by ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS that may have started forest fires?
Don't forget that a fair percentage of ILLEGAL ALIENS probably are carrying ILLEGAL DRUGS. Let's not forget that some of those ILLEGAL ALIENS could also be TERRORISTS bent on causing another 9/11...
I think it's worse than that AP. I think he represents the illegal aliens and drug smugglers that cross through those areas and he doesn't want the Border Patrol to interfere with his fellow Mexicans running illegal aliens and drugs into our country. He is the same Mexican that tried to create a boycott of Arizona when SB1070 was enacted.
The Voice of Tucson ask the question, Who does Raul Grijalva represent? by Hugh Holub on Jul. 10, 2011
Raul Grijalva, Congressman from District 7, represents that portion of the Arizona border with Mexico from Nogales to Yuma….most of the border in this state.
But to watch Grijalva in action one has to wonder…who does he really represent?
Does he represent the peopkle who live in the borderlands who are daily being impacted by illegal; aliens and drug smugglers crossing the border through federally managed lands?
Or does Grijalva represent national environmental groups who put protecting lizards ahead of national security?
We have a serious problem along the border because the EWndangared SPecies Act and the Wilderness Act designations put environmental protection ahead of national security.
US House Republicans are trying to rebalance federal law and not allow environmental laws to impeded the Border Patrol. HR 1505
Grijalva opposes that legislation.
Instead of looking out for his constituents…and maybe suggesting HR 15o5 be amended to apply within only 20 or 25 miles of the land border between the US and Mexico…Grijalva does his usual attacxk anything that challenges his views that environmental laws take precvedence over public safety.
The Pajarita Wilderness Area west of Nogales is a major people and drug smuggling corridor. The Border Patroil cannot drive around that area and secure the border.
Grijalva wants another Wilderness Area at the border…the Tumcacori Highlands.
Both areas were largely destroyed by the Murphy Fire which was set by an illegal alien.
Grijalva represents Sonoran Chub ( a fish), Chricahua Leopard Frigs, jaguars and Mexican pymy owls….he does not represent the human beings that live near the border.
Raul Grijalva is an open border, pro illegal immigration advocate who did his best to instigate a boycott of Arizona after we passed SB1070. Anything he has to say about border security cannot be trusted. He tries to make us believe that our border communities water and air and environment will somehow be so degraded that illegals wont want to come here just because The National Security and Federal Lands Protection Act would let DHS waive 36 environmental-protection laws for patrol activities within 100 miles of U.S. borders. Well guess what folks, the illegals that are crossing the border are already dumping a tremendous amount of their garbage in these areas and that's a pretty big environmental disaster that we will have to clean up. Exactly what harm could the Border Patrol do that is worse than what the Illegal aliens are already doing?
