Political correctness is the real scare

"Illegal Alien" Halloween Costume Debated
A Halloween costume that depicts a space creature in orange prison garb emblazoned with the words "illegal alien" is reigniting debate over a long-used term based on the U.S. government's designation of all foreigners as aliens.

The dispute has immigrant advocates calling on retailers to pull the costume from its shelves, while a group that supports strict immigration laws says it's all a to-do over nothing, with freedom of speech being turned upside down by political correctness.

Jorge-Mario Cabrera, a spokesman for the immigrant coalition, said the costume "perpetuates this idea we have about undocumented immigrants as alien foreigners, strangers, scary."

Several retailers and eBay have sucumbed to the PC terrorists. We can teach fisting in middle school but a costume that makes fun of criminals is "offensive" and must be purged.

Political correctness is the book burning of our time.

Why oh why do none of these open border supporters ever have a sense of humor?

Is it all the guilt they are holding inside? Knowing they are doing the wrong thing. They could maybe attract a few more supporters if they could ever laugh at anything.

But instead they will remain a minimal influence with thier constant whining that life just isn't fair, for Criminals.

ps, My Hispanic friends think this costume is FUNNY, but should include a Sombero to really be hilarious.

Didn't your Politicians LIE and say Illegal aliens are going home because of the bad economy? Illegals know they can get Government help and don't need a job or at least deal drugs...

Busy Weekend for Federal Agents at the Border

SAN DIEGO - Federal agents working at ports of entry at the U.S.- Mexico line in California over the weekend seized 1,125 pounds of illegal narcotics, confiscated nearly $84,000 in undeclared cash and caught 10 fugitives wanted for various crimes, officials reported Monday.

Between 6 a.m. Friday and 6 Monday morning, Customs and Border Protection officers confiscated 987 pounds of marijuana, 86 pounds of cocaine, 28 pounds of methamphetamine and 23 pounds of heroin from would-be smugglers, according to CBP public affairs.

The two currency seizures occurred Friday, both involving Mexico-bound pedestrians who falsely declared that they were not transporting more than the legal limit of $10,000 across the international border. One of the men was carrying $69,552, the other $14,359.

Those arrested on outstanding warrants over the weekend were wanted on suspicion of rape, larceny, narcotics offenses and other crimes, according to the federal agency.

Border agents have busy weekend

By Bill Hess

TUCSON — With an average of more than 700 illegal immigrants apprehended each day over the weekend, some were found to have significant previous arrests, according to a spokesman for the Tucson Sector of the U.S. Border Patrol
Of the five apprehensions, all Mexican males, with significant arrest records, three were taken into custody by agents from the Douglas Station, Alex Gomez said Monday.
Friday afternoon, an illegal immigrant in his mid-30s was found to have a record for felony forgery and impersonation, Gomez said, noting there was no specific mention in the report where the man had been charged.
There were two apprehensions of individuals with records on Sunday, he said with one individual with no age stated or state where the initial arrest for rape given, the spokesman said.
The other Sunday arrest by Douglas Station agents involved a man in his early 30s who had been arrested for sex with a minor and lewd and lascivious acts with a child, Gomez said. The arrests were in Pennsylvania.
Agents from the Tucson Station apprehended a man in his early 30s, who had been arrested on two counts of vehicular homicide while driving under the influence, Gomez said. No state of where the arrests were from was available.
Casa Grande Station agents took into custody a man in his early 20s, who was identified as being a member of the Califas Sur Trece street gang in Arizona, the spokesman said.
Individuals with criminal records are begin held for processing, Gomez said.
An increase in temperatures led to a number of rescues of illegal immigrants from Mexico suffering from dehydration and other medical problems, he said.
A pregnant woman in her mid-20s was helped near Rio Rico when she complained of stomach pains Saturday, he said. That same day, another woman, in her late 20s, was found near Tubac with signs of severe dehydration, he said.
Sunday, a woman was found east of Nogales, Ariz., complaining of problems with her ankles, Gomez said.
An initial examination revealed possible fractures to both ankles, he said.
Casa Grande Station agents came upon two cases of dehydration Sunday, Gomez said.
A man in his late 20s was found west of San Luis, Gomez said, adding later agents came upon another man, in his early 20s, south of Highway 83.
Monday, a woman in her mid-20s was found to be unresponsive and suspected to have ingested caffeine pills, the spokesman said.
Agents from the Tucson Station came upon a small group of illegal immigrants near Arivaca on Saturday, the spokesman said.
One female member of the group fainted, Gomez said.
All the people with medical problems were taken to hospitals.
“Smugglers tell people to take pills, and they do,” Gomez said.
The problem is that the pills do not help the illegal immigrants and in many cases cause dehydration, he said.
Additionally, “smugglers are also giving people meth,” the spokesman said.
The unknown is how many of the dead illegal immigrants agents have come upon may have taken pills or meth, he said.
“It is suspected that many of those individuals had been told to take pills or meth and they did what the smugglers told them to do,” Gomez said.

Survey shows strong support for immigration raids
Phoenix Business Journal - by Mike Sunnucks

Just under two-thirds of Americans want see more raids on businesses who hire illegal immigrants and to see those illegal workers arrested.
A national survey conducted earlier this month by Rasmussen Reports found that 64 percent support police conducting surprise raids on businesses suspected of hiring illegal immigrants, along with the subsequent arrests of undocumented workers. Nineteen percent oppose the raids.
Another 71 percent in the Rasmussen survey want to see the bosses who hire illegal immigrants arrested, with only 15 percent opposed.
The survey results come in the midst of the nasty political fight between the Obama administration and Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio over the MCSO’s immigration sweeps.
The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency has restricted an agreement with Arpaio that previously allowed the hard-nosed sheriff to enforce federal immigration laws out on the streets. The new pact only allows the MCSO to make immigration charges on those being booked into county jails on other charges.
Still, Arpaio conducted immigration sweeps in Surprise and Peoria last weekend, arresting suspected illegal immigrants under state laws.
The Rasmussen survey found 46 percent want local police to be able to question those on their immigration status; 33 percent oppose the idea.
While the poll shows support for tougher immigration enforcement there are also concerns about those efforts trampling individual rights.
Sixty-one percent are concerned immigration sweeps and raids might violate legal citizens’ civil rights while 38 percent aren’t concerned, according the 1,000-person survey.
The support for more raids and arrests of undocumented workers and business owners and executives who hire them comes as the Obama administration prepares a push for immigration reforms that are likely to include some kind of legal citizenship path or amnesty for illegal immigrants already in the U.S.

I stopped taking Daniel seriously that he supports freedom of speech a couple of years ago when he applauded the mauling, pepper spraying and arrest by police of a college student who was simply trying to ask Sen. John Kerry a question, from a podium and using a microphone provided for that purpose in an open forum. Can you imagine how Daniel would have reacted to that had the student been a member of OFIR and all other things were equal? Fucking goddamned hypocrisy, that's all it is. You're the last person to be talking about "book burning" Miglavs, so get over your fool fucking self.

I'm sorry but this one is a bit much. While I support strong borders and the removal of all illegal aliens, (I don't use the term undocumented immigrants), this costume seems asinine.
And "PC terrorists" that's a bit over dramatic don't you think. Better to stick to the facts and not give them easy targets to distract the conversation.
