One Virginia address received $163,711 in tax refunds where 100 different tax ids had been issued. . . but that’s not even the craziest of it.

He’ll travel most anywhere for a photo-op or vacation paid for by your scarce money. At this moment, instead of taking care of real business, he is in Las Vegas, NV speaking to people at a high school. The subject? His idea of immigration changes, never mind Congress already has a plan which includes a secure border … something absent from Obama’s plan.

In spite of testimony from government officials indicating that the Obama administration will move to require so-called sanctuary cities to turn over illegal aliens, don’t expect to see anything close happening. The Washington Times carries the story and we post it in part:
After eviscerating most of Arizona’s strict immigration law in court last month, the Obama administration is now considering going after the other side by suing sanctuary cities to force them to coöperate with federal deportation efforts, an agency chief told Congress on Monday.
John Morton, director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said he’s asked Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. to take legal action against Cook County, President Obama’s home county in Illinois, to force it to turn over illegal immigrants for removal. He said he’s now awaiting a final answer from the Justice Department.
“They wanted to see how certain pieces of court decisions came out. I expect to hear from them shortly, and I can tell you that resolving the issue in Cook County is very important for me,” Mr. Morton testified to the House Homeland Security subcommittee on the border.
While resolving the issue might be very important (or not) for Morton, a resolution requiring hand-over might not play into the desires of Holder or Obama. even if the “illegals,” are dangerous criminals, the action is not likely to be a popular one in the progressive groups.
Cook County officials decided several years ago they did not want to cooperate with federal authorities’ immigration efforts and stopped providing them information that could help with deportations of those booked into county jails.
Last year, the county enacted an ordinance officially halting compliance except in the most major of cases, and then only after they reached a financial agreement with the federal government to cover the costs.
Mr. Morton said that’s effectively dried up all cooperation.
“Right now, it’s not a question of Cook County releasing some individuals to us,” he said. “They are releasing no individuals to us, including very violent offenders, and I just don’t think that’s good policy.”
There’s much more to the story and we in New Mexico need to remember we have our share of sanctuary cities resulting when their mostly progressive leaning mayors and councils passed the enabling legislation. You can read the rest of this article by clicking here.

Governor Martinez announced on Friday (12/09/11) she will once again introduce legislation to revoke the state law which permits illegal aliens to obtain driver’s licenses in New Mexico. She said she would do this during the state legislative session next month. Her earlier attempt to pass such legislation was hampered by the intransigence of the Democratic majority in the state legislature, as well as the extra-special efforts of Speaker Lujan in the House of Representatives.
I believe all residents of our state are sympathetic to the plight of the illegals who come in to our country. Many of these illegal border crossers are of good character and are just seeking a better way of life away from the corruption and drug cartels which have become so entrenched in the daily lives in their home country. We need to be compassionate, if possible, until we can help them back across the border to their own country. Unfortunately, this does not allow us the luxury of forgetting the potential security risks that our open borders bring with them, not to mention ignoring the many serious crimes committed by those who are criminal offenders.
According to the U.S. Business Council and Fox News, the 9-11 Commission documented that 18 of the 19 terrorists who participated in the 2001 attack had what appeared to be valid drivers license’s or state I.D. Cards. These documents provided these self-professed martyrs with unrestricted travel privileges and the identification which enabled them to take part in the flight training they needed to carry out their cowardly attacks of 9-11. Perhaps inadvertently, but some U.S. State authorities did indeed assist the 9-11 terrorists in the accomplishment of their cowardly mission.
With this in mind, I believe it is important for all citizens to take an early stand on this issue and to be ready to repeatedly impress upon our elected representatives that we expect them to support the Governor’s attempt to repeal this flawed law. If you meet any elected representative who does not support this repeal, ask him or her how they would feel if another terrorist attack were to occur and it was later documented that one or more of the attackers had a New Mexico license in their possession. Would they not consider themselves partly responsible for the deaths of the victims? Drive this point home. Start early and repeat this point often. We’ve got to remind our legislators that they are accountable to “We The People!”
New Mexicans have a chance to enhance state and national security. Keep in touch with your elected officials and support what our perceptive Governor is trying to do!
