The body of Rancher Rob Krentz
and his dog were found shot to death on his ranch. Krentz, who always was good-natured and willing to help people, had called in that he had found an illegal alien at one of his watering holes and was assisting him. That was the last that was heard from him before his body was discovered.
Rob Krentz was a lifelong rancher in Southeastern Arizona, 12 miles north of the U.S./Mexico border and 25 miles northeast of the city of Douglas. He was the father of three children. The ranch has been in his family for three generations, more than 100 years - since 1907, and sits on about 35,000 acres with 1,000 head of cattle. Running a ranch is hard work and with the influx of illegal aliens increasing, Rob was at ground zero of the stampede that is destroying the fragile desert landscape.
The Krentz family has received numerous threats in the past by illegal aliens trespassing on their property. In 2002, the family was physically threatened when one of them stumbled upon a group of 39 illegal aliens. They were told to get off the land and they made threats. The Border Patrol did catch the illegal aliens after they were called, but we all know that illegal aliens, if deported, come right back across.
In 1999, Krentz and his wife Susan did an interview with PBS when they came around asking about the issue of illegal immigration and its impacts on the local ranchers.
"We've been broken into," Susan Krentz told PBS.
Rob and Susan Krentz
"One time," Rob said "You know, we've personally been broke in once. And they took about $700 worth of stuff. And you know, if they come in and ask for water, I'll still give them water. I - you know, that's just my nature."
In 2003, Congressman Tom Tancredo mentioned the challenges of the border ranchers, and in particular highlighted the the Krentz family's plight.
"In the month of November, 2002, in the Tucson Sector of the U.S. Border Patrol ... where the Krentz ranch is located, the Border Patrol apprehended 23,000 border crossers," Tancredo wrote. "many people would suggest that the [apprehension] ratio is just about maybe one in five, and that is a very conservative estimate. ... I think it is closer to one in ten".
That means in that sector alone for one month, 8 years ago, the most conservative estimate is that 115,000 illegal aliens crossed the border in that one chunk of land in the Tucson sector. All of the illegals are unknown.
Tancredo notes that the Krentz's did mention to him that they called the Border Patrol. In one instance illegal aliens had butchered one of his calves.
In February  ... a calf was butchered by illegal alien trespassers. Two men responsible were caught. They were tried. They were found guilty. They served a total of 51 days in jail. They were also ordered to pay $200 in restitution to the Krentz ranch. The Krentz ranch has not seen a cent of that money; and, of course, our best guess is they will not because these people have been released. They either came back into the population up here in the U.S.A. or returned to Mexico.
Tancredo goes into the cases of deliberate sabotage of the Krentz ranch's water supply and the other impacts on the Krentz's by illegal aliens. You can read more, where Tancredo dubs the Krentzs American Homeland Heroes
6 years after the PBS interview, in 2005, Krentz did an interview with KOLD as the number of illegal aliens exploded.
"We’re being over-run, and it’s costing us lots and lots of money," Krentz said.
"We figured it up over the last five years and it’s cost us over $8 million," Krentz said. "Cattle don’t like people walking through, so they move. So, cattle weight loss, destruction of fences, breaking our pipelines, they break them in two and (the pipes) run for two or three days before we find it."
Krentz went on to say that when he was a boy he actually knew the few illegal aliens that came through looking for work, he said it's nothing like that now as hundreds of unknown illegals stream across his land.
Rob Krentz is just one of the many people who live and work along our southern border. A tough, hard working man who was trying to make a living and doing what he loved. Those who support illegal aliens will talk about "human rights", but where were the "human rights" when it came to Rob Krentz? Where was the government to protect our border and prevent this from happening, though they've been told time and time again? They didn't protect his property rights, nor his civil rights.
This country failed Robert Krentz, his family and all who work for him. As they have failed countless families all across this country. The number of deaths is estimated to be from 15-25 deaths caused by illegal aliens each day in this country.
It is not known yet whether Krentz was specifically targeted or whether it was just one of the hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens who come across our border every year who have actual criminal records, but in the end does it matter? A hard working man was killed on his own land. And all for just trying to help out someone in need.
And that is simply outrageous.
Rest in peace Robert Krentz, the country will surely miss a great and kind man like you.

ace8119 - it IS McCain that wants to give these terrorists amnesty! This is important because if you think McCain is not the problem here...you're WRONG and you'll probably vote for this pathetic RINO who WILL work with Obozo to give away our country.
I'm just saying that your comment is dangerously ill informed and talk such as that will lead to the reelection of McCain - a tragedy for our country.
Our Marxist in Chief in the WH is living proof that - ELECTIONS HAVE CONSEQUENCES.

I will admit right after posting that comment I thought that maybe I should have looked further into that. So disregard my McCain comment, but we all know that our "Great Leader" is a joke. And he is definately going to push for something along the lines of amnesty.
Posted by: ace8119 on March 28, 2010 06:17 PM
Lets all get this one out in media and send to all our local politicians and to obama asking for napolitano's resignation...
Posted by: jackie on March 28, 2010 07:05 PM
I say we just have everyone resign. All these politicians don't realize whats going on in our country, let alone our border. They think everything is nice and peachy and only know what they read, they have never lived it or even takin the time to spend some time in the real world atmosphere.
Posted by: ace8119 on March 28, 2010 07:18 PM
And to think his Senator was in Washington making deals for amnesty while one of his constituents was dealing with those affects. Worse yet, McCain now is talking about a secure border and changed his amnesty talk -- hiding it. Now he points to fence failures. This is what that policy(& your actions) wrought us, Senator McCain. At least Rob will be sorely, sadly missed.
God bless and be with his family.

I'm sooo sick and tired of this. How many Americans must die before we get serious about this problem and actually stop the invasion. Arizona, you need to show McCain his walking papers because he's determined to give our country away, Yeah JB, I too noticed how McCain dodged the question about his stance on illegal immigration [hiding it] and pointed to border security.
Posted by: WILL on March 28, 2010 08:25 PM
What can one say? It's obvious that the leaders of our country wish to see it destroyed and devastated by these mongrels and murderers from one of the worse countries in the world. THIS IS INSANITY, and yet I personally know(liberal) Americans who support these illegals -- of course, unlike me, they don't live with them. The USA is doomed, and we're all on our own.

Rob Krentz's blood is on the hands of people like BrianD... plus Barack Obama, Janet Napolitano, Gabrielle Giffords, Raul Grijalva, Luis Gutierrez, Charles Schumer, John McCain, Lindsey Graham..etc. etc.
THEY are as much to blame as the illegal who murdered Krentz.
The murdering @#!%%!! got away. The Border Patrol had him "cornered" by the border... but SOMEHOW ??? he got back into Mexico. ...Did someone from the Douglas BP station turn a blind eye???
And where was the "cooperation" ole Hillary set up with Mexico??? There were NO Mexican law enforcement agents waiting on the other side to capture him.
Posted by: CWren on March 28, 2010 09:44 PM
Watch out people. Now that Obamacare has passed, amnesty IS NEXT and when that happens, we're ALL screwed. It's gonna be a cold day in hell that i support anybody who stands for these illegals and what they're doing to this country. THEY are the ones draining us and making our deficit grow. THEY are the ones who get free healthcare while good, honest, hard working AMERICANS get thrown to the wayside to just die!
...but yet, you still have people who say it's totally cool to let them be here because "they do jobs Americans won't do" and that is the worst argument ever! These people are mooching off our government, spending our tax dollars to take care of their health, their anchor babies, and almost forcing us to learn their language.
America welcomes immigrants, but not through the side door. We prefer you use the front door and don't step over everyone in front of you on your way in.

This country is on the path of destruction from the inside! All Washington cares about is how to line their own pockets and get reelected! They just rammed a health care (???) package down our throats, against the will of the majority! They say that it is for our own good. If it is so great, then WHY are congress, and the office of the president exempt from it? When are we (The People) going to say 'enough is enough' and either vote these idiots out of office, or just take this country back the way the common folks did in 1776? Talking and trying to reason just isn't working! Has anyone got a good ides what the next step should be? I'm for putting soldiers on the border with shoot to kill orders!
If the government doesn't want to protect us, then the next step is armed citizens!!! I know this is tough, but I'm tired of seeing good, decent people getting hurt & killed because the politicians just want votes! Enough said!!!
Posted by: superwrench on March 28, 2010 11:35 PM
We have been under siege for several years. All the government needs to do is put all the agents sitting around at the check stations shooting the bull, down on the border and shut it down! Simple to do if they really wanted to. Rob and his family are close friends! I'm PO'd!
Posted by: Rodeomom on March 28, 2010 11:36 PM
While I feel sorry for Mr. Krentz and his family, he should have stayed away from the illegal alien and instead summoned either the police or the Border Patrol.

There is a hot window seat in hell waiting for limp dick Brian D.
My heartfelt prayers for his family. My gosh, WHERE THE HELL WAS MCCAIN for these Americans? To think of all the illegals he had to tolerate and deal with, yet he wouldn't refuse these trespassers water. This is just sickening that this American rancher had to deal with this. Hey Congress - BUILD THE DAMN FENCE!!!
But wait - our legislators find it amusing to blatantly ignore the wishes of the citizenry. They want to give all these (new potential democrat) illegals amnesty and OUR TAX MONEY to take care of these freaking lawbreakers and their families.
Pack sand you traitors on the Hill; and that includes the fraudulent, lying, America-hating TelePrompTer/puppet in chief!
This is all so disgusting and so heart-wrenching that our elected politicians, who want to run and protect everyone else from invaders or pain, haven't done anything but harm to our beloved country.
We are voting ALL of you self-centered shit heads out in November. You've done so much damage already - even to this one family in Arizona. Every single one of you amnesty voters owe this family your apologies.

Brian D. is probably some Liberal that whines all the time about tolerance, fairness and equal rights, when in fact HE is the one that has no tolerance!!! What a mean, ill spirited, hateful thing to say!!!
May God send comfort and compassion to the Krentz Family during this horrible, senseless time of tragedy.
I also pray that Brian D. learns to have some compassion for others that are not like him.
Posted by: LW on March 29, 2010 12:37 AM
Americans have failed this rancher, and the others who have been fighting this tsunami without the true support needed.
We've sat on our hands, and have allowed the illegal alien support network to label us nativist, xenophobes, or racist. It has stopped us in our tracks. We've allowed the liberal media traitors to control the tempo, and anti-American groups like the ALCU, Southern Poverty Law Center, and various other scams led by anchor babies loyal to Mexico. They have been running rampant without fear of us.
We have become weak. They should be terrified to cross that border. It's time for us to show them we are not going to take any more of their unabashed lawlessness. I really hate to say this, but we need to get violent. We are being invaded.
Americans of all races are expressing their disapproval for the upcoming Amnesty pushed by the racist Illinois Congressman and Mexican loyalist, Luis Gutierrez. After all, Democrats have to pay the Hispanic community back for allowing illegal immigrants to vote in our elections (an offense that would get you a prison sentence in Mexico).
Why is it that the children of illegal aliens are granted the same rights and privileges as the descendants of slaves for whom the Fourteenth Amendment was written into the Constitution? Why should American children have to compete with millions of illegal alien children for seats in schools, quality attention from educators, diminishing social services and ever-distant opportunities? Why is the proud refrain, “We Shall Overcome” now muffled by the clamor of “We Will Overwhelm and Take Your Country?” If you seek answers, just look to the “racist” groups like The National Council of La Raza (The Race), MeCHA, LULAC, and a terrorist group called the “Mexica Movement.” Their official platform says:
“We totally reject all illegal European Colonial Squatter Occupation Borders on our continent. We also reject Colonialism’s right to keep stealing the wealth of our lands. And we reject their artificial divisions of our people!” This is a group that thinks America is their property, and anyone who doesn’t fit their description should leave the country. What it also means is this is a hateful, racist and terrorist group, and it should be dealt with. Of course, we will be called racist.
What Americans are fed up with are the millions and millions of people who come here and do assimilate or learn the language. People who send their earnings “home” to another country. People who are turning 2 bedroom apartments and single family homes into illegal camps housing up to 100. People who are stealing I.Ds and Social Security numbers from American taxpayers. People who are turning entire neighborhoods and city sections into Tijuana’s, where half the store signs advertise “llanteras usadas.” People who are killing American citizens at the rate of 27 per day through murder, drunk driving, etc. People who expect and demand their kids to be taught in Spanish, and don’t care what we Americans think. People who since 2000 have desecrated our National border parks with 35 million tons of trash.
People who drive illegally, have no auto insurance or set enough aside to cover their liabilities. People who use our expensive hospital emergency rooms as their cold and sniffle clinics. The real complaint here is that those “lazy Americans” who still try to “follow the rules” find themselves increasingly squeezed and taxed, fingerprinted and regulated and licensed and strip-searched, while the illegals thumb their noses, disregard our wishes, and give the finger to our laws.
Why would they want “reform” of laws they’ve shown no intention of obeying? What they really want is “belly up immigration surrender” - free instant citizenship rights to all government welfare benefits for any of their people who can get here. Why is it dangerous that we can’t discuss these things frankly in the open, without crippling euphemisms that disguise what this is really about?
We’ve all seen the news coverage with millions of illegal aliens waving Mexican flags in our streets demanding to be awarded citizenship.
We’ve heard the threats from the their seditious leaders elected to our offices. We’ve seen the American flag burned, or hung upside down beneath the Mexican flag. They insist we’d be nothing without them.
They call it “Reconquista.” The sleeping giant is still in bed.
They are artificially encouraged by tens of millions of their illegal illegitimate brethren that victory is within reach. The coming conflict with these parasites in parasite’s clothing will end with the American citizens fighting back with a fervor that will make President Eisenhower’s “Operation Wetback” puny in comparison.
The illegal alien network support system and Mexican government will counter. There will a national movement. To be an illegal alien in the United States will become and should become difficult. People will self-deport.
The national bleeding will then stop. I will no longer have to press 1 for my own language.

Now would be a great time for this family to file a wrongful death suit against the Federal Government for failing to secure our border. They might not get anywhere, but this story would sure gain national attention. If they were to get lucky and win, they could use the millions they receive to build the much needed fence along the border of their property. My heart goes out to this family.

Big Meeting today at 11am at Douglas Border Patrol Station with Gabriel Giffords, Lets get Rob Krentz's death not be in vain but a beginning for a change!
Posted by: CountryWoman on March 29, 2010 09:48 AM
I grew up with Rob and his family in the same area. I will tell you right now, that this is getting riddiculous. Those who have moved away have to worry about the families that they have left there being hurt or killed by these illegals. This has been happening for many many years, but I will tell you that it was not NEARLY as bad when Bush was in office. If you are going to try to argue with me, dont. I am living this story and know from personal experience. Something needs to be done and this president is not going to do it.
Posted by: Jolene on March 29, 2010 10:44 AM
When is our communist president going to do something about the border. Yes, I realize Bush didn't either, but it's getting worse. I know Obama needs the illegal vote as the Hispanics and other illegals vote almost 95% Dumbocrat, but Obama is about to go down in history as the president who caused the collapse of this nation.
Posted by: Ross on March 29, 2010 10:48 AM
This is a perfct example of the kind of idiots who are trying to stand in the way of securing our borders and enforcing our laws. Rep. Patterson wanted to know if the violence is on our side of the border. (Apparently he thinks that nothing should be done until it is.) I hope that he's satisfied with the death of border rancher Rob Krentz a couple of days after this idiotic display of his. We must ALL get behind people like Russell Pearce and their bills and let our leaders know that this is unacceptable and that we will fight it.
Posted by: Brandy B on March 29, 2010 01:00 PM
I am speaking as a fellow rancher along the border area of NM/AZ. There is talk about these immigrants coming in illegally and living off the tax paying Americans, this is true and some kind of reform does need to be made to deal with this. To me this is a completely different set of people and a different problem. The man who killed Rob was not one looking for "a new life and the American Dream" he was most likely a drug runner. He knows that the Border Patrol cannot physically hurt him, that it is against US law for a US citizen to shoot or even hurt another human being whether or not that human is from the US or not. They know that the US Government is trying to take our guns away from us! The time has come for Americans living along the border to take matters into their own hands, we are tired of waiting for the border patrol to actually get on the border instead of "patrolling" Highway 9! Highway 9 is not the border folks!!! Why aren't the border patrol trained to deal with these violent people? Oh just leave that up to the local law enforcement...WHY? The is millions of dollars put into BORDER SECURITY...FOR WHAT, so that I can pass by and see 4 (yes count them...four) 2008 FORD diesel pick-ups stopped at the intersection of NM 9 and NM 113 chatting in the middle of the afternoon??? Its time to speak up out there! I hope some of you have brains enough to realize it. Susie, my prayers are a flying.
Posted by: Ruby 1 on March 29, 2010 01:41 PM
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Krentz family. What wonderful people they are. Real Americans, people of faith and charity far beyond the ability of the liberal left to even comprehend.
What can we do for the Krentz family??? Fight amnesty, send the National Guard to protect our borders. I don't always agree with Tancredo, but this time he is right, right, right!

President Barry Soetoro is wanting to merge US , Mexico and Canada . Now the American people have to pay for the forced free healthcare . Mexicans are going to get free heathcare no strings attached . We are not aloud to protect our own property from criminals . I feel sorry for this mans family . It is ashamed what the government is allowing to go on with the Mexicans looting and killing Americans . We can send 100,000 troops to protect AFGAN OPIUM and can't send them to the border of the U.S.A. to protect us . Total BS

We were suppose to have a border fence/wall that should have been completed by now. It could have prevented such a tragedy.
The construction was started but never completed. Why is that so Ms. Napolitano?

I was working on a ranch helping a friend that knows/knew Krentz. He was called at 8am yesterday and told about this. The story he was told was that on Friday, Krentz helped the border patrol load up and haul off a whole lot of captured marijuana, they captured so much that they needed to use Rob’s truck to get it out. The next day hew went to check water and was last heard from at 10:30 Saturday and not found till Saturday night. The helping an illegal thing is not what I heard. The ranchers believe he was shot by smugglers. This information is first hand by the way and not speculation I overheard the phone call.
The fence is a Joke! Yesterday morning I saw at least 20 “border crossers” the new pc term hiding from the BP. It’s like watching a clown act. All you up north that think the fence does anything, stop! There needs to be REAL penalties for crossing the border and militarized to get this to stop. Or just legalize Marijuana.

How can they protect the land they own?
Posted by: Chris on March 29, 2010 04:35 PM
What's the expression about NO GOOD DEED BEING PUNISHED. When will Americans learn. How can anyone have any idea who is coming over that border? What kind of person they are? STUPID IS AS STUPID DOES. The new mantra for Americans describing their own state of mind. Illegal aliens are not Americans, they have no business being here, they are creating mayhem, and crime and bankrupt the American taxpayers treasury. But this isn't new. Look at the Arrogance they displayed while marching across Americans cities and towns a few years ago. They had Mexican flags, signs that told Americans to go back to Europe, etc.etc. NO GOOD DEED GOES UNPUNISHED, especiall when you live by a code of STUPID IS AS STUPID DOES. WAKE THE F UP AMERICAN CITIZENS AND LEGAL RESIDENTS.

Statistics show where a wall (not a puny post barrier) has been constructed the illegals/smuggelers go elsewhere to cross.
A wall is not the total answer but it helps. If you legalize grass then what about the other hard drugs that come accross? I personally would like to have sharp shooters patrolling the border too. We are at war and deserve to have all the protection we can get.
Posted by: Dano on March 29, 2010 05:15 PM
Klange said "he should have stayed away from the illegal alien and instead summoned either the police or the Border Patrol." Maybe you should know the story before giving your opinion. Rob thought that he saw an illegal who was hurt and radioed his brother to let him know he was going to offer the person assistance. Remember this was ROB's property, they were on his land. Are you "klange" saying that Rob should not have the right to tell a person tresspassing on his land that they need to leave? What makes it sadder is that Rob was going to offer help to a person, who he thought needed help. Arizona lost a fine man, I lost a dear friend and the world is sadder for it.

When will this nation wake up to the fact that we are in a war for our very survival? On our boarders. In our states. In our cities. And especially in Washington. Rome burned as Nero (aka Obama et al who actually lit the fires), fiddled. November can't come soon enough. But it won't bring back Rob Krentz - a father and husband who proudly carried on the pioneer spirit that made this country great - a love of freedom that made the west what it once was - the most free territory in the land of the free. Maybe the time has come to change "Remember the Alamo" to "Remember Rob Krentz!"

I personaly have had the oppertunity to know the whole Krentz family. Rob Krentz would happily give the shirt off his back to help most anybody in need. The illegals in that part of the country is out of hand. All the Law-Dogs would rather sit in the donut shop than get out in that vast open space and protect the citizens of the United States. If the goverment can't protect us, we have to protect ourselves, and that's the way people down there are going to start thinking, and it's likley to get real ugly. Susie, Phil and the children, my prayers are with you.

Our heartfelt condolences to his wife and family. It's a shame we live in a country that cares MORE about aliens than it does Americans. But, we do. May God Bless Rob's family during this deeply saddening time.
Rest in peace Rob and may your best 4 legged friend..rest in Heaven with you.

All you guys here are just a bunch of ignorant racists....Illegals DO NOT COME HERE to kill Americans! even though they have to take all the BS and racism in this country from assholes like you.
This country is deep in arrogance and stupidity, now i understand how your own government want to screw you, you're the worst people in the planet, you guys have it all but just got stuck with the consumerism and materialism and fuking drugs...this is all YOU ARE, don't hate people for wanting to come here and make a living, if Mexico is SO POOR the first one responsible is called...yeah,the UNITED STATES.

HEY OSCAR, IF WE ARE THE WORSE PEOPLE ON THIS PLANET WHY DOES ALL OF MEXICO WANT TO MIGRATE HERE TO LIVE AND WORK. IF MEXICO IS SO GREAT WHY DON'T YOU STAY OVER THERE. THIS MAN WAS ON HIS OWN PROPERTY AND WAS COLD BLOODEDLY MURDERED. MEXICANS ARE KILLING THEIR OWN PEOPLE IN JUAREZ AND OTHER BORDER TOWNS BY THE THOUSANDS EVERY DAY. MAYBE YOU OUGHT TO READ THE STATISTICS ON HOW MANY U.S. CITIZENS ARE MURDERED IN THIS COUNTRY EVERY YEAR BY ILLEGALS FROM MEXICO. THIS IS OUR COUNTRY AND WE SHOULD HAVE A RIGHT TO SAY WHO COMES HERE AND WHO DOESN'T. THIS MAN HAS HAD ILLEGALS CROSSING HIS PROPERTY FOR YEARS AND DOING DESTRUCTION, EVEN BREAKING INTO HIS HOUSE. I THINK HE WOULD KNOW WHERE THEY ARE COMING FROM. SO STICK YOUR ATTITUDE. I KNOW AMERICAN MEXICAN PEOPLE WHO DON'T WANT THE ILLEGALS FROM MEXICO OVER HERE EITHER. THERE ARE FAR MORE THAN YOU REALIZE. WE DON'T WANT ILLEGALS FROM ANY COUNTRY OVER HERE. SO GO BACK TO WHERE EVER YOU CAME FROM.

Please allow this man's legacy and his family's legacy to be the foundation for taking action in light of this news. Rob Krentz was the epitomy of honorable and decent human beings in this world. The Krentz family is hard-working, kind, compassionate, tax-paying, business-owning, active in local community, as well as state and national issues. They deserve all of our help and support. They are just one family of many that need light to be shed on what they are fighting every day to keep not only their business and jobs alive but keep themselves alive. Let us all keep this support and communication flowing on what is truly happening to our great American Citizens.

Rob was a good man. he did not deserve to die that way, and the worst part is, is that he called Border Patrol to come pick up a big load of drugs found in the same area he was killed. B.P. said it was too rough in there to get them, so he hauled them out himself. next day he goes back to the area to check on a well, the same illegal who left the drugs there shot him! B.P and sherrif's office are covering it up that Rob had to carry the drugs out himself!!! why would they cover that up??? the family holds the government, border patrol, and sherrif's office and our wonderful congressmen and officials responsibe!

Connie W: Your "MEXICO'S IMMIGRATION LAWS" discredit anything you post. Your thoughts go against the U.S. Constitution. You are applying the same things that ignorant people said about the Irish, the Chineese, and every other minority that's ever come to the U.S. or been here before it was the U.S.
I have no idea how any intelligent person would even consider your ignorant thoughts.
I grew up in Cochise county and saw a lot of illigals coming and going before the wall went up. I remember the border being a seven strand fence that was in gross ill-repair. The majority of the illigals would come and go with no malice.
If we put soldiers who are trained to kill the enemies of the U.S. on the borders, we are only asking for more U.S citizens to be killed as it happened in 97. Or did you forget Esequiel Hernandez? http://www.democrats.com/node/8941
The military is to defeat our enemies on the battle field, not to do "Fire Watch" on the border. That's the Border Patrols job. Even with their night vision camera stations and their IR cameras and their helicopters, trucks, ATVs, horse, they seem to be doing a crappy job for what ever reason.
Vigilantism is going to fail as well, as I can already see all the WRONGFUL DEATH suits in the near future for "U.S. citizens" who think they can take the law into their own hands.
The problem here is not the illigal immigrants. It is the drug trade. The cartels black mail people into smuggling stuff or they will kill their famililies as they do in Juarez.
Can you comprend that Connie? Would you smuggle drugs to protect your family? No, right, you would rather die than do that? I'm sure your mind would change as they held a gun to your head and pulled back the hammer, or maybe aimed in on your kids.
That being said, I'm sure a of people also working for the cartels are just greddy people who want to make quick cash...not unlike a lot of the gang members here in the U.S. do.
So how do we fix this problem? I don't know, it seems the world is run by the bad guys who are constantly being chased by people with good intentions.
Maybe get the DEA and U.S. Marshals to go in and shut down these cartels. Maybe the U.S. could use other OLDER means to take out these bad organisations. Maybe these bad guys are being allowed to continue work because apparently their are Police/DOC/Border Patrol Agents/Judges/Hwy Patrol/Firemen....that depend on all the messed up stuff that goes on to keep them working...
There is no PERFECT world people, bad things will happen to good people.

DEAD DAVID, YOU ARE THE ONE WHO IS CLUELESS. YOU ARE MAKING EXCUSES FOR THE PEOPLE WHO KILLED THIS MAN. YOU MIGHT CHECK YOUR OWN IGNORANCE ON THE SUBJECT. I DON'T THINK EVERYONE COMING ACROSS OUR BORDER IS A MURDERER BUT THERE IS ENOUGH OF THEM TO MAKE US ALL UNSAFE. AND JUST BECAUSE THEY NEED TO FEED THEIR FAMILIES DOESN'T MAKE IT RIGHT. WE NEED TO FEED OUR FAMILIES TOO AND MAKE SURE OUR FAMILIES ARE SAFE. AFTER ALL THIS IS OUR COUNTRY AND WE SHOULD BE THE ONES THAT MAKE THE RULES HERE.
Posted by: Connie W on March 30, 2010 04:11 PM
Connie W: Yet again you fail at your argument. What excuses am I making? Any person can clearly see that I stated what the problem was, a few possible reasons why it is going on, and a few possible solutions.
I also am confused why you have your caps lock on, it doesn't make your argument any better.
A good man was killed, for what ever reason. From what I've read about him, he was a kind man who helped people no matter what, even when it was a risk to him. So he seems like a man who would rather turn his cheek, unlike you with your stone casting.

In 1992, two things happened, many people do not know anything about.
The 1st thing was: Bush Senior attended the EARTH SUMMIT in Rio, Brazil and signed an 'agreement' with the United Nations that's known as AGENDA 21-Earth Charter.
The 2nd thing that happened was a book was published. The Author: Thomas Chittum
The Book: CIVIL WAR II: The Coming Breakup of America
Now, when the United Nations Sustainable Development and Biodiversity for the 21st Century was signed by Bush #1, it changed the world forever.
Then, when Clinton became President, he Implemented 22 Executive Orders that began the serious Implementation of Agenda 21 called, "The Wildlands Project", other wise known as "re-wilding".
If you learn what Agenda 21 does to the American Citizen that works and abides by the rule of law and tries to make a living honestly, you will finally realize that we are being eliminated and replaced.
Have any of you read, 'The Georgia Guidestones'?
The reason I ask is because they were written by the very same people that are controlling our world now, and what they believe, and what they plan to do with us.
They are Deep Ecologists. From the 60's and 70's.
They are the "Elites" you read so much about.
But who are they really? They are 'The Committee of 300" and there is all sorts of information as to who they are on the internet.
Also, youtube and massive amounts of other websites give information about the destruction of America via Agenda 21.
As for Mr. Chittum's book, if you read it, you too will realize his paragraphs jump off the paper because everything he wrote is happening just as he wrote it so very many years ago.
I know what to do. But, it would take millions of Americans to make it happen. When the "enough" comes is when we are all backed up against the wall.
And, that will come.

YES A GOOD MAN DIED AND HE DIED BECAUSE OUR COUNTRY ISN'T DOING ENOUGH TO PROTECT OUR BORDERS BUT IN YOUR PREVIOUS POSTS YOU MAKE EXCUSES FOR THE PEOPLE CROSSING OUR BORDERS. YOU CAN'T HAVE IT BOTH WAYS, WE EITHER START PROTECTING OUR BORDERS OR WE JUST TURN THIS COUNTRY OVER TO WHOEVER WANTS IT. YOU TRY TO MAKE YOURSELF SOUND REASONABLE BUT ALL YOU DO IS SHOW THAT YOU ARE RIDICULOUS.

LET'S GET SOMETHING STRAIGHT ABOUT CIVIL RIGHTS. WHEN AN AMERICAN OR A ALIEN COMMITS A FELONY ALL CIVIL RIGHTS ARE TAKEN AWAY FROM THAT PERSON. SNEAKING INTO THIS ONCE GREAT COUNTRY OF OURS IS CONSIDERED A FELONY AND A ACT OF TERROISM. WHAT THE HECK CIVIL RIGHTS DO THE PERPATRATOR'S HAVE AFTER THEY HAVE COMMITED A FELONY? ANSWER; NONE. THESE "ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT'S AND COYOTES" SHOULD BE CONVICTED ASAP TO HARD LABOR OR SHOT ON SIGHT. IF YOU WERE TO SNEAK INTO MEXICO ILLEGALLY YOU ARE THROWN IN A RAT & ROACH INFESTED MEXICAN PRISON AND ARE FORCED TO PERFORM HARD LABOR. IF YOU DOUBT WHAT I AM SAYING CHECK IT OUT! WHEN THE SOUTH AMERICAN'S SNEAK INTO MEXICO ILLEGALLY THAT'S WHAT HAPPENS. WE MUST FORCE THESE BLEEDING HEART LIBERALS AND *^&*%% POLITICIANS TO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR ASSISTANCE IN COMMITING THESE FELONIES AND WE MUST TAKE ACTIONS ON THE ILLEGAL BORDER CROSSING SCUMBAGS WHO SCREW US OUT OF OUR TAX DOLLARS BY RECEIVING BENEFIT'S THEY HAVE NOT CONTRIBUTED TO. SIMPLY PUT, WE WILL WELCOME ANYONE WHO COMES HERE LEGALLY, WHO ASSIMILATES TOU OUR WAY OF LIFE AND CONTRIBUTES TO THIS COUNTRY. ANYONE ELSE SHOULD BE CONVICTED, SHOT OR HANGED FOR TREASON AND TERRORISM. END OF STORY!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by: blackberry on March 30, 2010 09:00 PM
Connie, everytime you post, you are only showing people how ignorant you and your ideas are.
You want to MURDER illigal aliens...shoot and hang them..."Shot on sight." You are ridiculous, that's what happened when they put military on the border and they murdered a U.S. citizen as he was tending his herd while armed with a .22 long rifle.
Lets stop dacing Connie, admit it, this whole illigal alien crap you are talking means one thing. Send all the minorities away...if they look like an illigal alien shoot them.
Pretty much all you are saying is KILL Mexicans....right sweetie?
By the way, your caps lock is still on dear.

Reading 'blackberry's post makes me wonder if ANTIFA's are now armed with guns now as well to help their illegal pals...Hummm.
I grew up my entire life in the City of Los Angeles, and if that book up there, Civil War 2 the coming break up of America comes true like it has been, then everybody better get armed.
Everybody in LA is armed, even the Celebs:)

Posted by: David C on March 31, 2010 01:44 AM
The death of this compassionate rancher is a terrible and cowardly act. Someone asked where were his human rights? Good question except it was asked with the sarcastic tone that all those who care for the human rights of PEOPLE who are illegal aliens somehow don't care for the human rights of this PERSON who was a rancher. Now, I was in law enforcement along the border for six years. I grew up in Yuma and am a third generation native of Arizona. I am also a life long Republican and I am white. With that being said, I sincerely believe, with all due respect to those who disagree, that we are scapegoating those least responsible and those least able to change their circumstances. Even with the escalating border traffic and illegal activity, most of those crossing the border are not doing it for any other reason that they don't have many other options to give their families a chance for a descent future. Here is my list of who should be held responsible and prosecuted, in order: (1) American companies who encouraged illegal border crossing through tactics that made many PEOPLE not legally in the US little more than indentured servants. (2) The Mexican drug cartels who use otherwise peaceful people struggling to survive as human camouflage and shield for their illegal activities. (3) The Mexican government who by its policies have really suppress the people of the northern border regions so that they are little better than second class citizens in their own country. (4) The American government for the nod and wink tactics that allowed American companies to skirt the laws so easily. (5) Immigration laws that simply do not work fairly or timely, which breeds frustration and contempt for the law. If you don't think this is a legitimate reason, I hope you remember that when you are on a 55 MPH highway with no reason for the limit to be that low. You have to follow the law and if you don't then you are a criminal; it doesn't matter how broken or ridiculous or convoluted the law is; you're a criminal if you go 56. (6) Us, the American consumer, who didn't demand that the government enforce the immigration laws to protect not only ourselves but the PEOPLE who were hired illegally at depressed wages, giving us the benefit of lower costs for food and services. I know that some will argue that the social service costs outweigh the lower costs, but I think that the free loading drag on our system by PEOPLE who are illegal aliens is overstated. I have witnessed firsthand that many PEOPLE who are illegal and who have been seriously hurt on the job will refuse treatment for fear of getting themselves or their families deported or separated. Also many use fake social security numbers and thus pay social security taxes for a benefit they can never use.
When unemployment wasn't a major issue, illegal immigration barely got a mention in political campaigns. Now that times are tough and we need those jobs, somehow everything is the fault of the illegal PERSON wanting to work and people make jokes about shooting these PEOPLE for sport. We can't have it both ways. Working for human rights means rights for everyone or else they are for no one. We don't have to sacrifice compassion for being vigilant. The two are not mutually exclusive.

I am an old-fashioned liberal who has never voted Republican in my life. But I am dismayed at what has happened to liberalism in this country. I resent being called a "racist" because I object to people breaking the law to come here.
We desperately need a strong third party -- a so-called middle-of-the road party that will eschew name-calling, embrace moderate liberals and conservatives alike, and provide a political home for those of us who cannot stomach either the far left or the far right.
I would nominate Colin Powell to be its leader.
Posted by: Faye Joseph on April 1, 2010 03:01 PM
David C you are very one sided you care not that this man was murdered on his own property. The property that his family worked there butt's off for over a hundred years. The difference between people like him and people like you is you have never worked for anything other than how to get to the mailbox to get your next government assistance cheque. Which by the way his taxes and the taxes of all the other hard working Americans of all Races pay for. All these Illegals come across pay no taxes skip on their medical bills which get passed onto us again. We have no problem with ANYONE coming into this country LEGALLY and being a contributor what we don't want is the worthless pieces of crap like you who come over trash the land as they cross and then trash our country by living off of our tax dollars. So you and Oscar can piss off get the hell out of our country go where you belong maybe you could move to Mexico you like the people there so much. You really should go down into Mexico and enlighten the government there you seem to have such good ideas about what to do with those people. Also Faye we have middle of the road here in John McCain look what he has done a patriot at one time yes he was now he is just a bitter liar who changes his policy views every time it is convenient. I am sick of all you liberals all you want are hand outs get a job get off your ass go to work try and earn something for yourself instead of try to take it away form the one who want to work and take responsibility you are all lazy. Stop blaming others for your problems you are doing it to yourself. Damn you people are stupid

I would say they need to demand their rights to their corrupted Mexican President,after all no one has invited them her,no one brought them by force here.Mr.McCain with all due respect,lets stop the crap,and send the National Guard,and stop so many criminals from crossing our borders.

Posted by: BIgD on April 3, 2010 05:45 PM
PLEASE don't vote for McCain.
PLEASE keep this going. I have never really gotten active in any "political crap" but now it's time to participate and help put a stop to this.
PLEASE put up another website if you are capable of making one and invite more people to post their concerns.
PLEASE write to whoever you can think of and express your outrage.
I have to throw away one or two advertisements of grocery stores I get every week because right here in America they are publishing these papers completely in a language I can't read, and making English really small type below their non-native language. I find this to be OUTRAGEOUS.
I drive through an area in a burb of Phoenix a couple times a week on my way home, and I see a lot of people standing around waiting for a day-labor pickup. I feel unsafe when I drive through that area. I wonder how many are illegals. I wonder how many are taking a job from an American, and I wonder about the cheapass tightwad construction owner that employs this kind of labor. It goes farther than just crossing the border.
I'm just getting warmed up on this...but I'm really starting to seethe about this unbridled INVASION into our country, especially since I live in AZ now and have for a couple of years.
People are in poverty, and their jobs are being taken by illegal Mexicans. I see AMERICAN people standing at freeway exits every day panhandling. And perhaps that's because a job they could have done was STOLEN by an ILLEGAL who had no business here in the first damn place.
Oh yeah...I'm just getting warmed up. I will be hosting several websites to foster awareness and action by the people.
If you're like oh...95% of the population...who just watches the news and shakes their head and doesn't take any action or sits there in your overstuffed chair bitching about "the state of the nation"....STOP IT and get involved and speak your mind about this...if you've never done anything up til now but sit in that chair...get active in this one cause and STOP SITTING THERE GIVING OUR COUNTRY AWAY TO MURDERERS AND LOWLIFES. We DO have the power as the people...if only a few percent would write that letter, tell that official, post on that website, whatever, instead of sitting there...I hope this gets you fired up like it does me, because there's just no excuse for good people getting killed by lowlife drug running mf's like this. Get active.
Below is something that a friend circulated awhile back...that has many good points that we should take heed of.
Other countries, namely Britain and Canada, can learn from this official message from Australia.
I am particularly impressed by the simple statement "Immigrants, not Australians, must adapt".
The View from Here
Australia's stance on Islamism
Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told on Wednesday to get out of Australia, as the government targeted radicals in a bid to head off potential terror attacks.
A day after a group of mainstream Muslim leaders pledged loyalty to Australia and her Queen at a special meeting with Prime Minister John Howard, he and his Ministers made it clear that extremists would face a crackdown. Treasurer Peter Costello, seen as heir apparent to Howard, hinted that some radical clerics could be asked to leave the country if they did not accept that Australia was a secular state, and its laws were made by parliament. "If those are not your values, if you want a country which has Sharia law or a theocratic state, then Australia is not for you," he said on national television.
"I'd be saying to clerics who are teaching that there are 2 laws governing people in Australia: one the Australian law and, another, the Islamic law, that is false. If you can't agree with parliamentary law, independent courts, democracy, and would prefer Sharia law and have the opportunity to go to another country, which practices it, perhaps, then, that's a better option," Costello said.
Asked whether he meant radical clerics would be forced to leave, he said those with dual citizenship could possibly be asked to move to the other country. Education Minister Brendan Nelson later told reporters that Muslims who did not want to accept local values should "clear off. Basically, people who don't want to be Australians and who don't want to live by Australian values and understand them, well, then, they can basically clear off," he said.
Separately, Howard angered some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by saying he supported spy agencies monitoring the nation's mosques quote:
"IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT. Take It Or Leave It. I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali, we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians."
"However, the dust from the attacks had barely settled when the 'politically correct' crowd began complaining about the possibility that our patriotism was offending others. I am not against immigration, nor do I hold a grudge against anyone who is seeking a better life by coming to Australia."
"However, there are a few things that those who have recently come to our country, and apparently some born here, need to understand."
"This idea of Australia being a multicultural community has served only to dilute our sovereignty and our national identity. As Australians, we have our own culture, our own society, our own language and our own lifestyle."
"This culture has been developed over 2 centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom"
"We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society, LEARN THE LANGUAGE!"
"Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian, right-wing political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture."
"We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with us."
"If the Southern Cross offends you, or you don't like "A Fair Go", then you should seriously consider a move to another part of this planet. We are happy with our culture and have no desire to change, and we really don't care how you did things where you came from. By all means, keep your culture, but do not force it on others.
"This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom, 'THE RIGHT TO LEAVE.'"
"If you aren't happy here, then LEAVE. We didn't force you to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country YOU accepted."
Maybe if we circulate this amongst ourselves, more North American citizens (American & Canadians alike) will find the backbone to start speaking and voting the same.

yes however this is a terrible situation that does occur on yes a near daily basis, lets not forget that the "latinos or hispanics" are not the only illegal immigrants in this country, there are ones who also come over on a visa and opt to stay when it is time to return to their country, this is not only "south of the border people".... there are so many reasons that all of these people come to our great USA, "the land of the free!" most to "make a better life for themselves and family who can't be here, don't get me wrong here i don't agree with coming here illiegally, i really wish our system for allowing people to come here would get fixed. let the ones who are good natured, never having criminal backgrounds/tendencies through. there are still good people out there, NOT ALL illegals are bad people. yes ALOT of them are, BUT NOT ALL. alot of the countries are way worse off than ours, government wise, (and trust me i really think we could have chosen a better president, but we now have to deal with what we have to work with...) these people again want to have better lives for their families. i do not condone these people who have murdered innocent people. However i do feel that everyone really needs to take a look at these situations that make people want to come here out of desperation. needing some kind of peace, yes, needing some kind of way out, to restart their lives. yes i have more compassion for all people in need, no matter the circumstances. and of course most people, myself included, in hopeful thinking, would love to see the drug issue fixed, and NOT by legalizing marijuana, cocaine, meth, and all that junk, wich is what it is, junk... polutants, to the world and to the body. if these people wanna get high, go jump out of an airplane, a cliff, or out of bed. WAKEUP!

Is the ranch land owned by a rancher? Why not place mines or at least bear traps there (donations would pay for this)?
Or offer shooting sessions for a small fee, if shooters help dispose of the debris afterwards?
Finally, if the state is not protecting its citizens, what's the point in feeding this state?
Good luck, USA.

"Pretty much all you are saying is KILL Mexicans....right sweetie?"
That works for me. They are attempting to reconquer my country, after all.
And Oscar, I don't give a good god damn how bad the economy is in Mexico, it sure as hell isn't the fault of the United States, and it doesn't give Mexicans the right to come streaming across the border.
Posted by: Wolf on April 11, 2010 09:16 PM
I think amnesty should be granted. It's not just Mexicans that come into the United States. Most people commenting are ignorant and are just too plain stupid. They think every illegal immigrant is from Mexico. I personally know illegal immigrtants from Germany and Holland. But I know the minute men don't talk about that. I own 4 markets and I mostly employ Hispanics for the reason they are on time hard working. Most caucasian employees I hire are pot users, lazy, spoiled brats. I am a U.S. Citizen, I was born in Lebanon. I will probably get a lot of negative comments but all I am speaking is true. Most of the comments talk about crimes against Mexicans. I feel like the minutemen are wanna be racists who could not hang with the real racists, who hide at the fact when staring face to face.

Posted by: chad summerall on April 16, 2010 10:21 PM
The way i see it, there are NO consequences for illegal immigrants..they just get sent back, then come back again. This wastes our money and our resources.
This sounds a bit harsh, but maybe "branding" the caught illegals, then if they are caught again, labor camps for a few months or years.
I don't think its right our citizens are being threatened and killed.
We need to find a solution..not just solve the problems, but there do need to be CONSEQUENCES for actions.

It seems as though everyone has forgotten that "their" so-called country isn't even theirs to begin with! AZ, NM, & other states belonged to Mexico & the native american's owned this land before any of "your" people moved in. What happened to the native americans?? oh, now i remember.

I do not understand how people could be so ignorant. Everybody is targeting illegal immigrants as being the sole cause of the country's issues. People need to realize that there are illegal immigrants who kill, steal, and cause harm but it is not because they are illegal immigrants. Everybody if failing to recognize that there are so many citizens that violate the law on a daily basis. They don't have the "right" to. It just happens. If illegal immigrants aren't hired or able to rent a sustainable living place, then that is not going to help the situation. There is no denying that these illegal immigrants have integrated in America's economy and are now a part of what keeps it going. People need to stop attacking them because it is just not right. Many illegal immigrants are just here to try to make a better life for themselves in order to survive. If they are already here, why destroy them? Why strip them from their basic human rights. And to John Laster, are you serious? I thought we were past labor camps and such. That is like bringing back slavery. Get a clue. You probably have never felt getting treated like you were worthless and a criminal when all you are trying to do is protect your family. It is unfathomable that so many people could support the inhumane treatment of illegal immigrants. And to people who say illegal immigrants are soley responsible for the underground drug industry, Wake Up! Who consumes it? Demand leads to Production

Thank you, Edith. After having read so many ignorant comments, blaming illegal immigrants for all of our country's woes, it is nice to see a humanistic response to the other idiotic ones. It is absolutely ridiculous to say that illegal immigrants are responsible for our country's drug problem. Some other laughable claims that "they" are stealing our jobs and committing heinous crimes are also unwarranted. What caused so many of you to be such cold-hearted bigots? We need to break down the racial/ethnic barriers prevalent in our society that perpetuate such ignorance and hatred towards other human beings.
By the way, Marla, how do you discern legal v. illegal immigrants?
Posted by: Amy on April 26, 2010 04:00 PM
The way that I see it is this- start charging every person who employs an illegal a fine of $100,000 per illegal. Only then, when we make it cost more to employ an illegal, than a true american citizen will we end the influx of illegals. Face it most of the people who hire them only do it out of greed. Since they can pay them a below standard wage and then keep more of the profit for themselves. When we start this the illegals will go home (volintary self deportation) since they will no longer be an affordable alternative to hiring an american,

ok first of all immigrants in arizona is not an invasion an invasion is...1. The act of invading, especially the entrance of an armed force into a territory to conquer.
2. A large-scale onset of something injurious or harmful, such as a disease.
3. An intrusion or encroachment.
that is what an invasion is most of the immigrants in the united states are latinos and you could say they do cause crimes just like any one in the unite states whites blacks asians and people from the middle east murder people here in the united states. This man Rob krents was a unlucky man who was murdered but you cannot just say its in the nature of an illegal alien to kill somone. One more thing america is overseas killing and actually invading countries but u stupid rednecks fail to see that as an invasian huh american citizans kill more than 15-25 people a day in this country just this country not including the places they are in other countries.

Wow. Executions and forced labor camps? Blaming national problems on an ethnic minority? Branding?? I know, maybe we should invade Poland and send the mexicans there to a few camps that we've built. We'll just pile them onto the trains and send them off! There they can be executed quietly so we won't cause a fuss. Once all of the Mexicans are gone we can rebuild our nation FOR THE GLORY OF DER FATHERLAND!!!
Racist Nazi douchebags. Hitler thought the Jews were the cause of all of Germany's problems. Do you racist rednecks think Hitler was:
A) A visionary with many good ideas.
B) A sociopathic monster who was responsible for a genocide.

Marla- I am threatened by no woman or man. I'm least threatened by ignorant women like you and connie c.

Oh, by the way people, the prime suspect in Mr. Krentz murder is an American...wierd.
Zack J; You sir know shit about me. I'm a 5th generation U.S. Citizen who has deployed to countries more fucked up than ours and Mexico. I've helped more people than you will ever know. So you can take all your stereotypes and assumptions and go to hell in a hand basket and continue to cast your stones with Connie C and Marla and do your Boycotting of restraunts owned by "illegal immigrants"(they can't own businesses dear if they are hear illegally, learn your laws and see me when you are worthy.) You can continue to your racial profiling of those of Latin descent. Good luck with that considering 1/3 of AZ are of some latin descent. This is no more you land than it it mine considering my ancestors came here from Europe just like yours only from Spain and not being kicked out of Europe due to the protestant refromation. Good luck with 1070 too I see that law being thrown out unless AZ wants to continue to lose more Billions of dollars this year...funny you all blame illegls on the economy of AZ and Crime when your puppet politicians have done more damage in the last month passing 3 absurd laws.

Canuck: You can't place landmines in U.S. Soil...Military personal have a hard enough time removing them everyday from other countries. Not only do you need a lot of licences just to own explosives, implanting land mines into U.S. soil...well just watch this video...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NRF7dTafPu0
Landmines make as much sense as randomly shooting up into the sky on newyears...they have no target...if a ranchers decided to plant landmines on his property he couldn't know if his stock or wildlife would be being killed by them...or mayhaps his grandson goes for a ride and it blows his horses leg off and he gets thrown off and breaks his neck....inconclusion...stupid idea.
Bear trap you'd need a license...and last time I checked...you need permits aswell...not to mention if a human ends up in a bear trap, illegal or not, trespassing of not...lawsuit...conterproductive yet again...
I'm all for immigration reformation...but I've yet to see one good "Bill" "Law" any plan that makes sense.
Posted by: David C on May 4, 2010 08:34 PM
John Laster: There are consequences for illegal immigrants. You need to check up on the federal laws conserning them. It's "The way I see it" that will get you in trouble when you are having an discussion with people who actually study these on goings. Don't end up an undereducated stereotyper with absurd ideads of blaming minorities like Hitler or Connie C.
The whole consequence thing is supposed to be followed through by the feds but due to the feds not doing that in a timely manner, that's why AZ felt compelled to be sold the absurd "Support our naeigborhoods and law enforcement" bill 1070...Read the bill and if you're an open minded, intelligent person, you'll see how shady the now signed law is. As I previously stated...unless AZ wants to lose more $$$ this law will soon be rewritten or thrown out.

You are such a bunch of racists

Coming from a family of immigrants from Mexico, this hurts to read. Frankly because we came to the US rightly fully so, but what would have stopped me from joining a gang? Was it because I had a valid social security number? A license? There is no reasoning here. I was much more intelligent and better equipped in school than most of my American counterparts. I was more productive with my education than most people I know and even gained my school some awards for being a good student. Was THAT because I came here legally? What would stop an illegal immigrant from doing the same? Growing up my parents barely knew English, but we got by. So to read these racists remarks from people who are presumably in the bible belt about murdering other human beings. Well, it just saddens me. Jesus would never want us to hurt our brethren verbally or physically. I hope this country realizes that we are not enemies before anymore blood has been shed.

I agree that something must be done, but all of the Obama bashing about amnesty from Republicans seems hypocritical at least. Let's not forget the great(sarcasm)Ronald Reagan granted amnesty to almost 2 million illegals in 1986. To me that shows that there is no difference between the 2 parties. If you give a damn, vote Libertarian.

why does everybody keep going backwards and putting the blame everywhere but the present administration. Where's the dang change???Report employers who hire them. in md we haved found 17 different agency's you can report an employer who hires them. Although our Governor omalley caters to them and will be getting his pink slip this year. He turned md into the sanctuary state of little mehico!!

I recommend people read a book by Howard Zinn called A People's History of the United States. In it there is a chapter called " We take nothing by conquest, thank you".

As someone who has lost countless promotions and jobs because I am not bilingual -- having grown up in Maryland, one of the original 13 colonies, I wasn't expected to speak more than one language: English -- I have long opposed illegal immigration.
I born in the U.S. and, being a proud, law-abiding citizen of America, 28 years ago gladly went through the process of getting a "green" card for my now ex-husband, who is from England, after we were married. The number of papers to complete, sign and have notarized seemed overwhelming and endless, but we did it. We got through it. It wasn't impossible. So why can't anyone else do it?
Had I known my own country would resort to welcoming in anyone who crossed our border unlawfully, I would have had my then-husband wait and come through via Mexico. But no, I was then and still am a law-abiding citizen.
Unfortunately, living in Arizona, I am constantly being given incorrect information, taken advantage of, and treated rudely and disrespectfully by Hispanic men while trying to find an honest, competent home remodeler and repair person who is willing to actually work. I worked my butt off for years and years and years and, now disabled, every day I work hard and make my constant pain from 2 surgeries in less than a year much worse by doing so, but I still work hard. But no one who is actually charging money for working is "working".
Does anyone know how I can find someone near Phoenix who is reasonably priced and will not screw me over? I have had to take it upon myself to learn more about home construction than I ever wanted to learn ... This is insane. I shouldn't have to know everything about everything in order to not get ripped off. But thanks to "my" government and "my" politicians, I am in worse financial shape than ever because I must get the same work done again and again.
Our government should be working for us, the people, and not them, people who are here from another country illegally. If our country's primary language is going to be Spanish and our government is going to cater to people here illegally, then the Mexican government should help we American citizens financially.
It's no wonder no one has any respect for life. Rest in peace Rob Krentz with your beloved dog.
