PUBLIC ENEMY #1
A recent Harris Poll asked people what events they thought would be
a "major threat to the United States in the next five years." The
overwhelming response? Illegal immigration!
The largest number of respondents - 55% - said it was extremely or
very likely that a large number of illegal immigrants coming into the
country would be a threat. Only 24% worried about bio-terrorism, 23%
about rising sea levels, 15% about a world war, 11% about a stock
market crash and 11% about bird flu. Republicans were much more
likely than Democrats to worry about large scale illegal immigration
(73% vs. 43%).
THANK YOU, ROSCOE!!!
Congressman Roscoe Bartlett (R-MD06) has signed on as one of the
sponsors of HR 938, "The Nuclear Family Priority Act." This bill
would eliminate "chain migration," one of the major sources of
illegal immigration (see the February 11th Weekend Update for

BORDER PATROL AGENTS UPDATE
Both the Sentate and the House are scheduling hearings on the unjust
jailing of BP agents Ramos and Compean. Word is getting out that
their persecution was at the request of the Mexican government,
showing Bush administration puts its plans for a North American Union
ahead of the lives of brave American law enforcement agents.
The American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) has now asked
President Bush to pardon Ramos & Campean. If you are an AFGE member,
be sure to thank your union rep!
This story is getting bigger every day. Keep up the pressure.
Contact the White House, your elected representatives and the media.
Tell your friends. Make sure this terrible injustice does not get
swept under the rug!
MORE MEXICAN MEDDLING!!!
The Mexican government was also behind the persecution of Gilmer
Hernandez, a sheriff's deputy who is now in jail for trying to stop a
van-load of illegals who were trying to run him over! Clearly,
Mexico's (and our government's) aim is to intimidate law enforcement
so they'll stop enforcing the law against illegal aliens. Deputy
Hernandez' story will be featured this Saturday, Feb 17, 9pm EST on
Fox's "America's Most Wanted."
BANK of AMERICA - PROFITS OVER PATRIOTISM!!
Bank of America has begun offering credit cards to illegal
immigrants, the Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday. The new BoA
card is open to people who lack both a Social Security number and a
credit history, as long as they have held a checking account with the
bank for three months without an overdraft.
