The situation with Haiti is totally out of control now. This is outrageous. How in all that is holy are Haitians going to rebuild Haiti if They Are All Living In The United States of America!!!!
From The AP:
GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE, Cuba — The U.S. has begun preparing tents at Guantanamo Bay for Haitians migrants in case of a mass migration spurred by the earthquake, a senior official at the base said Wednesday.
About 100 tents, each capable of holding 10 people, have been erected and authorities have more than 1,000 more on hand in case waves of Haitians leave their homeland and are captured at sea, said Navy Rear Adm. Thomas Copeman.
I know Club Gitmo is not in the USA, but we own it, pay for it, man it and secure it. So what’s the difference. Oh wait, we don’t secure our own country. Where’s the fence?

From the Washington Times:
The U.S. military is in a better position to provide Mexico’s military with training, resources and intelligence as its southern neighbor battles deadly drug cartels, Defense Secretary Robert Gates said.
More than a thousand people have been killed in Mexico in drug-related violence this year. In 2008 the toll doubled from the previous year to 6,290. Both the United States and Canada have warned that murders related to drug activity in certain parts of Mexico, particularly along the border with the United States, raised the level of risk in visiting the country.
“I think we are beginning to be in a position to help the Mexicans more than we have in the past. Some of the old biases against cooperation with our — between our militaries and so on, I think, are being set aside,” Mr. Gates said in an interview aired Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

Free health care provided to illegal aliens detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement needs to be investigated and improved, some members of a congressional Homeland Security panel said on Tuesday, despite testimony that the number of detainee deaths is way down and that health screenings have saved lives.
Now your all saying it is our responsibility to take care of these people because we detained them, I can hear ya’all saying that.
Capt. Jose Rodriguez, director of the U.S. Public Health Service’s Division of Immigration Health Services, testified that each individual taken into ICE custody is given a verbal health screening and is tested for tuberculosis within 12 hours. Dental exams also are provided, and women ages 10 to 55 are given pregnancy tests at the initial health screening.
The dental screening is a bit over the top since most health care plans for working citizens of this great United States do not include dental plans. The rest I agree with, especially testing for TB. A disease that all these Illegal Aliens are bringing back into the U.S. And get a load of these numbers.
Witness Jim Hayes, director of ICE’s Office of Detention and Removal Operations, told the subcommittee that of the more than 1.7 million people who have been in ICE custody since its inception in 2003, 90 individuals have died.
1.7 million illegals, and that’s only the ones we know about and caught! I wonder what they do with the babies of the illegals that these women have while in detention? Do they ship them back to their country of origin with their mothers. I doubt it.

From Fox News:
An immigration showdown is brewing on Washington’s Olympic Peninsula, where simmering tensions and borderline hostility have fueled a turf war between the local community and the Border Patrol agents assigned to protect it.
Now the American Civil Liberties Union has jumped into the ring and upped the ante, rolling out a campaign that will install signs inside buses informing riders of their rights — to ignore Border Patrol agents.
The signs, entitled, “YOUR RIGHTS with border patrol agents on this bus,” makes three points:
• If you’re a U.S. citizen, you don’t have to prove it.
• If you’re not a U.S. citizen and are 18 or older, you must show your immigration papers to federal agents.
• Everyone has the right to remain silent.
The campaign, which could start as early as next week, is the latest in a series of expanding grassroots efforts aimed at curbing the expansion of Border Patrol forces and the powers of its agents.
