Illegal Alien Amnesty Threat Increases!
Violence at the Border Escalating!
And, Proposed Amnesty of Illegal Aliens Increases Threat of Violence!
Help CCN Stop Amnesty-Driven Surge in Border Violence and Crime

   April 2006

Danger escalates for U.S. agents as Mexican criminals step up attacks on the Border Patrol. A major smuggling tunnel linking a warehouse in Mexico to a warehouse in San Diego is discovered. Immigration officials in Laredo, Texas, seize a cache of weapons believed to be intended for Mexican criminals that includes materials for explosive devices, assault weapons and machine gun assembly kits.

What is our government doing to protect U.S. citizens from the crime, drugs and endangerment along our southern border?


In recent months, dozens of U.S. Border Patrol agents patrolling the Mexican border have been physically attacked. Agents have been fired upon and pelted with rocks and large chunks of concrete, including "flaming rocks." These are rocks wrapped in gasoline-doused cloth and set ablaze.

According to national Border Patrol Chief David Aguilar, violent assaults are up 108 percent. Law enforcement officials in some border towns are convinced that the Mexican military is involved in helping drug smugglers cross the border. Border Patrol agents have reported being chased and fired upon by people wearing Mexican military uniforms, driving military vehicles and carrying assault rifles.

". . . on Jan.13, another agent trying to stop an illegal entry was hit near the left eye by a large rock thrown with stunning accuracy from the Mexican bank. It took 25 stitches to repair the wound." ("Danger escalates for border agents," The Dallas Morning News, 2/12/06)

Discovery of tunnels illustrates dangers of porous U.S. - Mexican border

In January, U.S. Border Patrol and Drug Enforcement Agency agents uncovered a major smuggling tunnel originating 100 yards south of the border and ending inside a warehouse nearly half a mile inside the U.S., in San Diego. The tunnel housed a sophisticated smuggling operation complete with electric lighting and an air ventilation system. Just weeks later another, incomplete, tunnel was found in the same area. Tunnels such as these are known to be used for smuggling drugs and illegal aliens; there is, of course, the possibility that they are also being used to smuggle terrorists and weapons into the U.S.

Federal agents recovered more than two tons of marijuana from inside a tunnel running under the border.

Speaking of weapons . . .

In February, U.S. authorities seized an enormous supply of illegal weapons and homemade
bombs in Laredo, Texas, in connection with a Mexican drug trafficking battle. Authorities captured 30 homemade bombs, grenade components, assault weapons, silencers, machine gun assembly kits, bulletproof vests, police scanners and cash.

What is the Bush Administration doing to secure the border and stop this violence against U.S. citizens?? Not much. The Administration and most of Congress seem largely unconcerned about the shocking incidents taking place on our southern border. Instead, the President continues to push for the legalization of up to 20 million illegal aliens currently living in the U.S. (who could then bring their families, resulting in perhaps as many as one hundred million additional people in the USA in a few short years!). The tool is a "guest worker" program that will let the illegal aliens who are already here stay, with the prospect of then importing millions of additional foreign workers.

Rewarding illegal behavior with amnesty will only encourage more illegal immigration and increase crime, violence and threats to U.S.
citizens. The voice of experience speaks: A surge in illegal invasion followed on the heels of the 1986 amnesty, which was to be the one and only one of its kind.

Even as the violence escalates on the border the Senate is considering a "guest worker" (amnesty) bill that would not only legalize up to 20 million illegals but would encourage a larger flow of illegals and import more crime into the U.S.

Two more outrageous amnesty bills introduced!

Add to the long list of amnesty threats new legislation just introduced by Senator Pete Domenici (R-NM). This potentially disastrous proposal, known as the Welcoming Immigrants to a Secure Homeland (WISH) Act, would not only reward the millions of illegal aliens already living in the U.S. with amnesty but would admit another 500,000 new "guest workers" plus dependent family members every year! In addition, all of the "guest workers" would be allowed to become permanent residents!

February 8 Minuteman rally big success!

CCN and Minuteman Project Supporters Rally on Capitol Hill!

CCN staff joined over 100 CCN and Minuteman Project supporters from all over the country at a rally held in midwinter conditions on the West Lawn of the Capitol February 8. The crowd cheered as Minuteman founder Jim Gilchrist and Congressmen Tom Tancredo (R-CO) and Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) took turns at the podium, calling on Congress and President Bush to secure our borders and reject "guest worker" programs and amnesty for illegal aliens. Predictably, the inside-the-beltway Neo-Con mass immigration management groups, FAIR and Numbers USA, were neither visibly in attendance nor supportive. The rally was covered extensively by the media. Thanks to all who attended and for all of the calls and faxes to the Senate!

A second disastrous bill proposed by Sen. Specter (R-PA) would also amnesty illegal aliens presently in the country, as well as double permanent immigration green cards and create an unlimited foreign "guest worker" program. The bill would double legal immigration to over two million a year!

The grassroots is working hard to stop this treason, apparently forcing the pro-open borders crowd to wait for the strategic moment to strike. First, we heard February; now, as we go to press, the latest information from Capitol Hill is that the Senate will try to sneak an amnesty through in or before April. The backdoor strategy to pass an amnesty shows that they know they are committing treason against the people.

We must keep up the pressure to oppose an amnesty! Help CCN build on the success of the Capitol Hill rally and keep up the momentum. Take Action Today!

1) Call, write, and fax your senators today and demand that they work to secure our borders. Ask them to oppose any amnesty ("guest worker") provisions in Senator Specter's bill, or any bill that would increase immigration. Indeed, ask them to support a moratorium on all immigration in excess of 100,000 per year.

You can reach your senators by calling the Congressional switchboard at (202) 224-3121. Fax and E-Mail contact information can be found at

2) WE VERY MUCH NEED YOUR HELP. The Bush Administration is soliciting millions of dollars, planting news stories, and trying to ram an amnesty through Congress and pass a bill doubling immigration! But resistance to this scam is building and together we can stop it.
