During July, 2011, a small group of people from North Carolina Tea Party groups traveled to Arizona to make a film about the illegal alien problem on our border with Mexico. Sheriff Larry Dever of Cochise County lead them on their investigation and showed them the territory.
The film crew was sponsored and led by Tea Party Patriots, Mark Hager of the Yadkin Valley Tea Party,Renee Griffith and Mike Prince, also coordinators went on this trip, and funded by donations from Tea Party Patriots and local Tea Party groups across North Carolina ― including and especially Moore Tea Citizens. Thanks go to everyone who donated to the project.
The goal of the Arizona Project is to show that the truth is the exact opposite of the Obama Administration’s very false claims that “the border has never been safer than it is now.” The group was escorted by Sheriff’s Department Deputies as they interviewed and filmed American citizens who live and work near the border. The group went out at night to patrol the isolated areas used by the smugglers and illegals to sneak into this country. They collected factual information and documentary footage to demonstrate the nature and extent of the border problems in Arizona. This film will show you real information about the violence on the border.

Have you heard about Maywood, California, near Los Angeles. Here is an interesting read about that community, titled Welcome to Maywood, Mexico by Roger Hedgecock on 6/25/2010 at Human Events.
Boasting a population that is 97% Hispanic, more than half foreign born, and 40% illegal, the Los Angeles County, Calif., incorporated city of Maywood has achieved the Reconquista goal. It is now as lawless and chaotic as any place in Mexico. Maywood is a warning to every city and town in America.

This story has been building for many years. Here is a CNN report from 2006 showing the Mexican flag being flown over the United State Post Office in Maywood.

This is very disturbing, watch how arrogant this elected representative, Congressman Pete Stark, is and how he ridicules those in attendance of this townhall.

Please listen to this video as Jon Kyl, US Senator from Arizona, explains his conversation with the President, that the border will not be secured until comprehensive immigration reform is passed.
Listen closely at 3:21
The problem is, if we secure the border, then you all won’t have any reason to support comprehensive immigration reform. In other words, they are holding it hostage.
Does that sound like Arizona and the rest of the nation is being held hostage and the ransom is amnesty?
Are other states hostages as well?
Well, the other night, when I watched the President speak from the Oval Office, I heard a political speech about cap n trade, not a speech about a tragedy and crisis in the gulf. Is that why the Coast Guard demanded the boats with skimmers to stop because there weren’t enough life jackets on board? Is the gulf being held hostage also? until cap n trade is passed?
What is next? A hostage situation coming soon to your area of the country.

This was posted on Hot Air this afternoon….who do you think will back down?
The Los Angeles City Council voted to boycott the state of Arizona over its new immigration-enforcement law, and now the Arizona Corporation Commission has responded. Gary Pierce, one of the commissioners chosen in state-wide elections to the utility regulation panel, notes that Los Angeles gets about 25% of its power from Arizona producers. If the City of Angels really wants a boycott, Pierce offers his services to help, as he explains in a letter to Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and copied to Hot Air:
Dear Mayor Villaraigosa,
I was dismayed to learn that the Los Angeles City Council voted to boycott Arizona and Arizona-based companies — a vote you strongly supported — to show opposition to SB 1070 (Support our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act).
You explained your support of the boycott as follows: “While we recognize that as neighbors, we share resources and ties with the State of Arizona that may be difficult to sever, our goal is not to hurt the local economy of Los Angeles, but to impact the economy of Arizona. Our intent is to use our dollars — or the withholding of our dollars — to send a message.” (emphasis added)
I received your message; please receive mine. As a state-wide elected member of the Arizona Corporation Commission overseeing Arizona’s electric and water utilities, I too am keenly aware of the “resources and ties” we share with the City of Los Angeles. In fact, approximately twenty-five percent of the electricity consumed in Los Angeles is generated by power plants in Arizona.
If an economic boycott is truly what you desire, I will be happy to encourage Arizona utilities to renegotiate your power agreements so Los Angeles no longer receives any power from Arizona-based generation. I am confident that Arizona’s utilities would be happy to take those electrons off your hands. If, however, you find that the City Council lacks the strength of its convictions to turn off the lights in Los Angeles and boycott Arizona power, please reconsider the wisdom of attempting to harm Arizona’s economy.
People of goodwill can disagree over the merits of SB 1070. A state-wide economic boycott of Arizona is not a message sent in goodwill.
Commissioner Gary Pierce
A scan of the letter can be downloaded here. I wonder what Commissioner Pierce has to say about Councilman Ed Reyes’ lack of understanding of California’s own penal code? Maybe the AZCC could buy a copy for Reyes, although it might be difficult to read during the blackout in Los Angeles.

This was posted at the Arizona Capitol Times last week–2 candidates–2 different views on immigration.
Let’s see, McCain: secure the borders, path to citizenship, temporary worker program
And JD: Not a political problem but a national security threat and an invasion
