"Douglas, thank you for the information.
This, really, is war, isn't it. That the American people simply haven't woken up to sufficiently yet.
But they will. Because they will be forced to. Because it is coming to a head."
"It is really very simple:
1a) Close the lid on the honey pot that is attracting many if not most of them here. That means no more welfare benefits, of any kind - including public/taxpayer-paid education - to anybody who is not either a citizen…"
"Thank you very much for all the trouble you are going to to educate the American public on these matters, Juan. Just one thing. You need to strike the names of Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio from your lists of potential conservative candidates…"
"So perhaps just as well that the CA governor recently signed into law legislation that allows illegal aliens to get driver's licenses. That way, such licenses can no longer be used for voter ID purposes.
ANYTHING to help force…"
"There is a simpler, and more long lasting, answer to this matter: Put a lid on the honey pot that attracts them here. No more illegal aliens having access to taxpayer-funded benefits and education. Employers of illegals heavily fined…"
"The answer to this enduring headache is really very simple. Fine and/or imprison any American providing illegal aliens with jobs. Make the illegals all ineligible for any kind of welfare, or education, or health care being paid for by…"
"JohnnyAnt and Roberto: Found it. The reference to staking the 7th Fleet at Pearl Harbor like a sacrificial goat to lure a tiger (my words) was in an article in the Jan. 20th issue of The New American magazine titled 'FDR vs. Lindbergh:…"
"JohnnyAnt: I'm sorry that I don't have all the info about that whole appalling story at hand, I read it all some time ago. But as for the comment:
"The idea that we were using the 7th fleet as bait is absurd, why would…"
"This is in reply to both you, Roberto, and RFB:
First, I am not the expert here. See: puzo1.blogspot.com; two YouTube videos of Prof. Herb Titus; the blog site of CDR Charles F. Kerchner (Ret); et al. The gist:
Cruz is a legitimate…"
1) We were not "involved in a war with Germany" at that point. We were giving (Lend-Lease) aid to Great Britain, but the European war didn't blow open into a World War until Pearl Harbor (much to…"
"Impeachment is not the way to go with the Usurper, The Great Pretender, the Imposter-in-Chief. That is reserved for those LEGITIMATELY in the office who have gone wayward IN the office. Obama is not a "natural born" citizen;…"
"Buck, Buck, Buck…You DO know that Ted Cruz is ineligible for that office, don't you? Just as BHO is, and was; for not being a "natural born" citizen - i.e., one born on the soil (or its equivalent) of two U.S. citizen…"
Stan This is a direct copy, in part, of the DHS statement regarding their 100 mile border search and seizure policy.
The border search exception is a doctrine of United Statescriminal law that allows searches and seizures at international borders and their functional equivalent without a or probable cause.
This doctrine is not actually an exception to the Fourth Amendment, but rather to the Amendment's requirement for a warrant (or probable cause). Balanced against the sovereign's interests at the border are the Fourth Amendment rights of entrants. Not only is the expectation of privacy less at the border than in the interior  the Fourth Amendment balance between the interests of the Government and the privacy right of the individual is also struck much more favorably to the Government at the border. This balance at international borders means that routine searches are "reasonable" there, and therefore do not violate the Fourth Amendment's proscription against "unreasonable searches and seizures".
Border searches more invasive than "routine" require some suspicion. See the section below.
Despite federal law allowing certain federal agents to conduct suspicionless search and seizures within 100 miles of the border, the Supreme Court has clearly and repeatedly confirmed that the border search exception applies only at international borders and their functional equivalent (such as international airports).
Stan, You asked for more details on the 100 mile border areas set up by the DHS. I don't really have much more than I put in my blog; however I do have the capability to research it a little further and will get back to you.
