Original story from the Times HERE
A town against the wall

Granjeno on the Rio Grande has outlasted the rule of Spain, Mexico and the Republic of Texas. Now the border fence aims for its heart.
By Miguel Bustillo
Los Angeles Times Staff Writer

December 17, 2007

GRANJENO, TEXAS — Gloria Garza doesn’t have a whole lot. But what she has, she clings to with pride.

She lives in a simple stucco house with a rustic wooden veranda and a well fashioned from odd stones her husband found around the state. Kittens stretch lazily in the sun beside her porch. Armadillos dart across her backyard.

Her two-acre lot is her heirloom, her link to a legacy that dates to 1767, when Spain’s King Carlos III gave her pioneer ancestors a porcion of property that started at the Rio Grande and stretched inland for miles.

So she is not going to be quiet while some bureaucrat in Washington tries to take it — to build a border fence. She doesn’t want to become an unintended victim in a war against illegal immigration that she sees as misguided and wrong.

“It would be heartbreaking,” said Garza, 51, who teaches tots in a Head Start program. “For us, this place has a sentimental value that is worth more than any amount of money.”

The homesteads were owned by descendants of the land-grant families, the Munguias and the Bocanegras, and Tejano families such as the Garzas and Anzalduas that got parcels through business deals and marriages. Most existed well before the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, which recognized the Rio Grande as the border between Texas and Mexico in 1848.

“We didn’t come to the United States,” said Rey Anzaldua, 62. “The United States came to us.”

My unpublished letter to the editor below…maybe they will publish the next one?

Dear editor,

LA TIMES,0,4053287,full.story?coll=la-home-center

While poignant, the story of changing life in the small south Texas town of Granjeno due to construction of a long past due border fence cannot compare with the involuntary transformation of the rest of the U.S. brought on by the fact that six years after 9/11, American borders are not secured.

Here in Georgia, English is an optional language. No one in the nation has forgotten that illegals waved the flag of Mexico while screaming their demand for amnesty and citizenship last year. Maybe the residents of Granjeno are more leery of Border Patrol Agent than illegals and drug smugglers – the rest of the country does not share that mind-set.

Having been born in the U.S; sixty-two year old Rey Anzaldua seems confused about loyalty and what century this is with his quote: We didn’t come to the United States the United States came to us”.

Mr. Anzaldua is part of a very small minority and many should note for him that rivers can be crossed both ways. Maybe Mexico would be more sympathetic to his attitude?

We look forward to the Times story on the heartache in the rest of the republic caused by the absence of a border fence and a government which works to enthusiastically enforce American law.

NAFTA at Fourteen: Historic Mexico-USA showdown looms

Anti-NAFTA activists charge the trade pact has resulted in the loss of between 1.8 million and 3 million farm jobs during the last 14 years. Mexican Congressman Hector Padilla, the president of the agriculture committee in the Chamber of Deputies, said the rural hemorrhaging was even worse if statistics from 1991 are taken into account. According to Padilla, the number of people employed in the countryside plummeted from 9.9 million in 1991 to 4.9 million in 2006. As is widely documented, many of the displaced campesinos emigrated to the United States.

As the 14th anniversary of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) fast approaches, rural opponents of the trinational pact are stepping up their mobilizations on both sides of the US-Mexico border. Mexican farm groups and their supporters are gearing up for border-wide actions on January 1, 2008 to protest the final elimination of…

Attrition through enforcement works ….again!

“I don’t want to live here because of the new law and the oppressive environment,” he said. “I’ll be better in my country.”

Illegal alien in Arizona on that state’s new law aimed at illegal employment.

For months, immigrants have taken a wait-and-see attitude toward the state’s new employer-sanctions law, which takes effect Jan. 1. The voter-approved legislation is an attempt to lessen the economic incentive for illegal immigrants in Arizona, the busiest crossing point along the U.S.-Mexico border.

And by all appearances, it’s starting to work.

“People are calling me telling me about their friend, their cousin, their neighbors – they’re moving back to Mexico,” said Magdalena Schwartz, an immigrant-rights activist and pastor at a Mesa church. “They don’t want to live in fear, in terror.”

Martin Herrera, a 40-year-old illegal immigrant and masonry worker who lives in Camp Verde, 70 miles north of Phoenix, said he is planning to return to Mexico as soon as he ties up loose ends after living here for four years.

Fred Thompson on false choices, the law and a reasonable solution to illegal immigration and employment

Posted by D.A. King at 3:28 pm - Email the author   Print This Post Print This Post  

Holy Cow!

“Attrition through Enforcement.

Reduce the number of illegal aliens through increased enforcement against unauthorized alien workers and their employers. Without illegal employment opportunities available, fewer illegal aliens will attempt to enter the country, and many of those illegally in the country now likely will return home.

Self-deportation can also be maximized by stepping up the enforcement levels of other existing immigration laws. This course of action offers a reasonable alternative to the false choices currently proposed to deal with the 12 million or more aliens already in the U.S. illegally: either arrest and deport them all, or give them all amnesty. Attrition through enforcement is a more reasonable and achievable solution, but this approach requires additional resources for enforcement and border security:”


“Illegal immigration is not crime,” Rudy Guliani

“Illegal immigration is not crime,” Rudy Guliani HERE.

“I think he’s even worse than John McCain on the issue, and that’s saying something,”
Tom Tancredo on Rudy Guliani.

Immigration politics have similarly harmed New York. Former mayor Rudolph Giuliani sued all the way up to the Supreme Court to defend the city’s sanctuary policy against a 1996 federal law decreeing that cities could not prohibit their employees from cooperating with the INS. Oh yeah? said Giuliani; just watch me. The INS, he claimed, with what turned out to be grotesque irony, only aims to “terrorize people.” Though he lost in court, he remained defiant to the end. On September 5, 2001, his handpicked charter-revision committee ruled that New York could still require that its employees keep immigration information confidential to preserve trust between immigrants and government. Six days later, several visa-overstayers participated in the most devastating attack on the city and the country in history.

Strict enforcement of our immigration laws would be “sheer folly”? Mike Huckabee

Mr. Huckabee described Arizona’s legislation requiring proof of citizenship to vote and demonstration of eligibility to access public benefits as “inflammatory race-baiting demagoguery”
