ANOTHER FLY IN THE OINTMENT OF AN IMMIGRATION COMPROMISE: BORDER PATROL HELICOPTER CRASHES INTO RESIDENTIAL AREA OUTSIDE EL PASO

SAN ELIZARIO, TEXAS--The U.S. Customs and Border Protection folks aren't saying what time it happened yet, but the copter crashed into a house and smashed a truck up durned good. Still think border patrols are effective? You're alone, especially if you talk to people who live along the border. It won't work in any regard, you would have to militarize the entirety of American life, and it still wouldn't work.

The helicopter slammed into a yard and hit a pickup truck. The pilot and passenger, who was a Border Patrol observer monitoring the area for illegal activity, were taken by ambulance to a hospital, Senior Border Patrol Agent Patrick Berry said. No one on the ground was hurt. (AP, 05.22.2007)

Sorry folks, we're all going to have to accept that life in Mexico is lousy, American business is to blame, and that they're coming here anyway. They're not leaving. We have to make our policies and decisions based on that fact. I welcome Mexican immigrants, both "legal" (since we stole New Mexico, Texas, California, and everything else) and "illegal" to this country, as well as Canada.

Keep coming, we want and need you to help us rebuild labor! A demographic wave is more powerful than all the atomic weapons, chemical-bombs, and all the armies on the planet combined. It's unstoppable. Sometimes, change that helps people happens on-accident. Maybe more than we'd all like to admit! Keep coming folks, we need you, immigrants have always improved America. North American Unions: quit playing-with-yourselves and start organizing these folks.
