Sen. Steve Smith, Build the Border Fence, July 22, 2011

Border Build Letter 5.jpg

[Editor’s note: This is the letter Arizona State Senator Steve Smith is using to solicit citizen donations to build the wall to protect his state’s southern border. Please click on the link to go to see the original, where you can make a contribution on-line. You do not have to be a citizen of Arizona. This is a national problem and deserves a national response.]

    Better get going with plenty of defence and plenty of help.

    Narcos have been living off USA for decades. What do you think they will do when they are thwarted? Prepare for war with strong defense.

    I pay taxes for protection against enemies both foreign and domestic. What happened to the tax money? What happened to the Constitution and respect for the oath of office. Is Washington, DC filled with drug addicts. I think they need to be drug tested like the rest of US.

    No mater where you live in the US you have to donate. I am Irish and I’m going to donate.

    This can be the start of stopping and maybe reversing the overrunning of white lands. The idiot politicians in my country seem to copy what America does so they’ll take Americas lead in this too and maybe they’ll stop all the Nigerians, Indians and Pakistanis who are flooding into my country.

    Non US citizens are not allowed to donate online.

    I have emailed them to inquire if non US citizens can donate.

    I could donate by post but I may end getting the donations sent back to me.

    I’ll post back here to let people know if foreigners can in fact donate when they respond.

    I told a friend that I hope the border patrol catches a couple of middle eastern terrorist trying to slip across the Mexico/US border with a “dirty bomb”

    The border would be secured in a week. The regular Army would be sent there with a shoot to kill order as they have on the North/South Korean border.

    End of problem.

    4 WASP:

    I wish, but our open southern border and certain Hispanics helping the 9/11 hijackers helped the 9/11 narrative, yet instead of securing it, Bush threw it open even wider and then spent most of the rest of his Presidency babbling on about how we need amnesty for illegal aliens, segue to Obama.

    Don’t waste your money building a fence.

    It will cost a fortune to maintain and will never do the job

    Do the illegals swim or sail boats?

    Build wide, deep dams along the nearest rivers that form a natural boundary with Mexico.

    They will be much easier to patrol plus they will provide an asset for agriculture in the region; instead of there being a financial drain to constantly maintain a fence that the illegals will continue to break through.

    In the space between the rivers/dams and the official border plant a minefield with plenty of warning signs.

    Israel has had to resort to building a wall to seperate themselves from Palestine.

    In (apartheid) South Africa along the eastern border with Mozambique a double fence existed which was backed up with the Kruger National Park containing natural predators like lions, leopards and cheetahs

    You may find that your manpower defence resources will then have to switch to the coast of Texas as the people runners bring in their cargo in by sea as they do across the Mediterranean from Africa to Europe.

    you cant dam where its flat.

    We need some kind of mass produced chain link fence, then sprayed with concrete. it wont stop people, but in between have land mines. Then have patrol stations every 5 miles with high speed helicopters with rail guns. and make it the policy.. that if something is detected in between those 2 fences.. shoot first. We could build 100 miles of this to test it out first. and prove its very very effective. we would need additional sensors to detect tunnels so routine gunship patrols would find those emerging from tunnels.

    Amazing. Why is this collectivist claptrap taken seriously by anybody? Just what we need: money held in a so-called trust by, guess who, state appointed overseers….

    The letter is a pathetic document written by one of the senator’s handlers. Always more government…more power, more laws, more gibberish from the representatives of our enemy, the state. Wake up people! Give those people what they deserve: hatred and riducule. If you want to close the borders, close the borders. Post soldiers with shoot to kill orders and you will find that the fences will become uneccessary.

    Well, it turns out non US citizens can donate. I got a reply and they seemed very eager to get more money.

    Regardless of whether it stops illegals getting into the US, it will stop illegals getting into Arizona. When the other states sees the benefits that brings they will copy Arizona. More importantly, when other states see Arizonians taking control of their border and don’t see the sky falling in on Arizona then you can be sure others will follow.

    I will be donating. It’s for a good cause, a white cause.

    Why not…non-citizens and foreigners vote in our elections and the government has no problems with it. Of course asking anyone for a government issued identification would be “racist and disenfranchise” certain self-aggrieved groups.

    So clearly, what could possibly be wrong with allowing foreigners and non-citizens to donate a few bucks in order to secure our border? We allow China to hold most of our national debt, so how dangerous could it be to accept a few bucks from non-citizens who would like to assist us in protecting this country. I cannot foresee any issues with this. I thank you in advance for your patriotism.

    What…SB1406 is not going to be tied up in court by Obama and our AG, with Mexico and La Raza filing a friend of the court brief? I’m sure there’s some federal judge out there, itching to rule that asking private citizens for donations for public security is “unconstitutional,” especially since it’s the “responsibility of the federal government to enforce immigration laws.” They can throw in something about the commerce clause for good measure!

    Isn’t that what they always say!!!!

    Where does the money go then?
