Are cheap fruits and vegetables worth it?

On July 24, two burglars allegedly broke in to Marilyn Pharis’ home as she slept. They sexually assaulted and beat her. Pharis, 64, a U.S. Air Force veteran, died in the hospital Aug. 1. It turns out that one of the two men charged for the crime, Victor Aureliano Martinez Ramirez, 29, is an undocumented immigrant against whom Immigration and Customs Enforcement issued a detainer in 2014.

Santa Barbara, California, law enforcement first booked Ramirez in 2009 for driving without a license. In May 2014, authorities booked Ramirez on felony sexual assault and drug possession. The charge was changed to misdemeanor battery. It was not reduced, Santa Barbara District Attorney Joyce Dudley told me. “The standard for arrest is probable cause.” Last month, authorities charged Ramirez with felony possession of a concealed dirk or dagger and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia. On July 20, he pleaded “no contest” to a misdemeanor knife charge; he was supposed to start serving a 30-day sentence in October.
For his part, the Santa Maria police chief is steamed because he has watched state and federal law work together to undermine law enforcement.

The case seems like Kate Steinle all over again. On July 1, Steinle was strolling on Pier 14 in San
 Francisco with her father, when a bullet pierced her heart. Authorities charged Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, a seven-time convicted felon and undocumented immigrant who had been deported five times, with murder. He pleaded not guilty. If the San Francisco sheriff had honored an ICE detainer, Lopez-Sanchez would not have been in San Francisco on July 1.

The accused 45-year-old shooter, Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, admitted to killing Steinle in a jailhouse interview with reporters, saying he was on sleeping pills when he found the gun wrapped in a T-shirt on the ground on July 1.
The Mexican national pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder, as it was revealed the .40 caliber handgun used in the slaying belonged to a federal agent, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.
Federal authorities say Lopez-Sanchez, whose criminal history includes seven prior felony convictions, is an undocumented immigrant who has been deported from the U.S. five times, most recently in 2009.

An illegal alien brutally murdered Laura Wilkerson’s 18-year-old son in Texas, tied his body up, and then doused him with gasoline before burning him. 

Police say RoKrentz, whose family has been ranching in southern Arizona since 1907, was gunned down early Saturday morning by an illegal immigrant while out on his ATV tending to fences and water lines on the family's 34,000-acre cattle ranch.

On October 19, 2003, the 29 year old, ex-quarterback for the University of Colorado football team, John Hesler, was driving his Honda Accord on Interstate 76 in Colorado when it was clipped by an SUV sending it across a median and into the path of a pickup truck, causing a horrific accident. The driver and passenger of the SUV that caused the accident fled the scene and haven't been found. The Colorado State Patrol told Hesler's family that they most likely are in Mexico.   

Police chief of the Needville Independent School District, Chief Ernest V. Mendoza lost his life when he was hit head on by drunken illegal alien Guillermo Paniagua Paniagua who veered into his lane. Paniagua had four previous drunken driving convictions. Paniagua fled the scene on foot but was captured latter. Mendoza, a 25-year-veteran of law enforcement, leaves behind a wife and four children. 

Min Soon Chang, a freshman from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, was killed by drunk driving illegal alien Jorge Humberto Hernandez-Soto, who hit him while going 100 MPH the wrong way on the highway. Hernadez-Sot had been previously deported to his native Mexico 17 times. That is not a typo.

Cheryl Ceran, 47, and two of her children, 15-year-old Ian and 7-year-old Julianna were killed on Christmas Eve by drunk driving illegal alien Carlos Rodolfo Prieto, 24, who ran a red light and slammed into their car. Also injured in the crash were Cheryl Ceran's husband, Gary Ceran, 45, their daughter, Clarissa, 19, and a son, Caleb, 12. Prieto had at least two other drunken driving arrests and did not have a license.

Kelly Bergen, 25, a teacher, was crushed between two potato trucks, an accident caused by an illegal alien driving without a license or insurance.

Deputy Loren Lilly, an 18 year veteran of the Cobb County, GA, police department was killed Christmas Eve morning on his way to work when an illegal alien swerved into his lane. The driver,

Joel Camacho Perea, faces charges of hit and run, failure to maintain lane and driving without a license.

Marine Corporal Brian Mathews, 21, and his girlfriend Jennifer Bower, 24, were killed by a drunk illegal alien Eduardo Raul Morales-Soriano who slammed into their car when it was stopped at a traffic light. Corporal Mathews was on leave, after just returning from duty in Iraq. Morales-Soriano had a blood-alcohol level that was four times the legal limit.

20 year old Natalie Housand was killed when illegal alien Jesus Garcia Lopez hit her car while going 100 MPH, driving drunk. Amazingly, after the head-on collision, Lopez fled the scene.

Donna and Sean Wilson of Juliet Tennessee, were killed by illegal alien Gustavo Reyes Garcia who had been, arrested 14 times in the previous five years prior to when he ran into and killed them, again driving while intoxicated. Garcia had previously been arrested 5 times on DUIs.

Tricia Ann Taylor, 17, lost both her legs above the knees when she was pinned against a wall by a drunken illegal alien with seventeen prior violations who hit her while drag racing.

Ryan Ostendorf, a 28 year old paramedic, who was also a Kansas University student and who dreamed of becoming a doctor, was killed by illegal alien Victor Anzua-Torresa who had ignored an order to receive treatment after his previous drunken-driving conviction. Anzua-Torresa had also been previously deported in 2000 and been arrested for several other offenses, including possession of drug paraphernalia.

5-year-old Felix Leon was killed in a hit and run accident by illegal alien Carlos Jaramillo.

James F. Rogers Jr., 18, of North Jackson, TN was killed by Luis Oscar Garcia, a Mexican who had been living in the U.S. without a green card for three years. Garcia ran a red light. In addition to the vehicular homicide and DUI charges, Garcia faces counts of driving without a license, registration or proof of insurance. When police did a check on his license plate, it did not come back under his name.

Joshua Morrow, 4, and his uncle, Ronald Bishop were killed by an illegal alien who left the scene of the accident.

Christopher Shackleford, 19, Julieanne Pascoe, 18, and Kelli Bourgeois, 18, were all killed in
 Marietta, Georgia, by an illegal alien drunk driver. He did not have a valid driver's license or insurance but did have a blood alcohol level at twice the legal limit.

Brandon Haley, 31, was killed while riding his bicycle in a hit and run by illegal alien Lazardo Lobaton.

The Marti family, pictured here during a happy moment that no longer exists. Sean, just 24 years old, and his daughter Sage, 5 months old, were killed by a drunk illegal alien who was driving the wrong way on Highway 84 in Idaho. Natalie Marti was in a coma for two weeks after the head-on crash, spent two months in the hospital, and has suffered brain damage from a traumatic head wound.

Chicago Police Officer Michael Gordon lost his life to a drunken illegal alien driver. Officer Gordon was in the driver's seat of his squad car when it was struck by Luis Calle, a Guatemalan, whose blood alcohol level was 0.177, twice the legal limit.

Helen Hughes, 22, Jennifer Carter, 18, and Hughes' stepbrother, 16-year-old Ben Leonard were all killed by an illegal alien, who allegedly was driving drunk, and already had a long record of crime in the United States.

22-year-old Amy Kortlang was killed by an illegal alien driving without a license and while drunk. The illegal alien driver had been previously deported, barely six months prior to causing the accident.

Diaz had been in the United States illegally for four years doing construction work. He received 10 years in prison but is eligible for parole in just two years.

No to mention a person I worked with a few year back was turkey hunting.  He was shot by an illegal while using his turkey call.  The illegal fled to Mexico.  As Colorado has the death penalty Mexico refused to extradite the illegal to Colorado to face charges.   Jeff, 28 years old at the time was survived by his wife and 2 year old son.

How many more Americans will be killed for cheap labor?



  1. Just a few minutes of searching.

    Do we really want an open border?

    1. Every two minutes, on average, a person is hurt in a drunk driving crash. So I'm thinking that if we take away all alcohol, we will fix this?

      Fair point?

    2. If illegals didn't roam the country freely would all the people above still be alive?

      Fair point???

      Irresponsible government?

    3. Respectfully Lou, we do not have an open border. We have built a wall. We have increased spending in border patrol. We have sent people back. Some illegals commit crime as do American citizens who were born here. Some of your points here are a bit specious. Your absolute view that nothing short of militarization, nothing short of saying all must go, nothing short of conducting raids 24/7 to round up and expel illegal immigrants is an acceptable solution. These are fair enough points. The continual pronouncement that we have an unchecked, open border is dishonest.

    4. Max, we have built a section of wall.

      We have increased spending as more illegals cross the border and fewer are deported today that in the past 10 years.

      Our border is porous and undefended. People cross it everyday. A new high of 1500 cross daily. People pretend we have border enforcement yet people cross freely.

      Send all illegals home, a better solution begin fining employers 5K a head and they can keep all the illegals on the payroll they want. They can be fined daily. Would illegals voluntarily every go home as ling as government and business are enablers?

      Should a nation, group cross our border with a nuclear device and detonate it close to a city, would you be outraged? Would you then say the border must be closed or would it be ok to allow the continued flow?

      Think the 11-30 million illegals in the US isn't a drain on the economy, they don;t affect American citizens?

    5. I've wanted to fine employers for decades, and I have yet to see anyone get a bill up for vote with that provision. Had we done that a long time ago, I think we might have a different story than the one we do today. Undoubtedly, 11 plus million illegals has impacted us economically and helped, in part to drive down wages in lesser skilled jobs. Our trade deals have done more damage in my opinion, but that's a debatable point I guess.

      The anchor baby issue is real and it's a problem. But unless they change that law, it becomes very sticky to say you simply deport an entire family AND the anchor child who is literally an American Citizen. We will continue to spend money on the border, and we will still have problems. My point continues to be, at what point do we spend so much money that we really get little return on it? Sneaking in the nuclear device is a bit of a red herring. Yes, it could come through there, but to do so, they must first smuggle it into Mexico, get it to the border, and then sneak it across. You make it sound like this is so simple that anyone can do it. Mexico will also suffer if a nuclear device is snuck across the border.

      I think that in real life, the CIA and other organizations are relying on intelligence gathering and to some degree, an assessment of the odds of some particular event happening. I'm actually more worried about internet communication than I am in the ability of some group like ISIS or some other whack job group to bring a nuclear device across the Southern border.

    6. The families deported take their children. When they reach an age where they can survive on their own they certainly can return to the US with a valid birth certificate.

      So we allow 3-4 illegals to remain in the US for 1 anchor baby?

      And both issues, trade deals as well as the open border have pretty much hosed the middle class.

    7. Meh, I dispute the term open border, but we are never going to agree on that, and those right of center will continue to claim, falsely, that we embrace any and all who come across with open arms and free shit.

      Whether I agree with letting people stay with their anchor baby is immaterial. You are saying, round them up and ship them out with their anchor baby and I'm not sure that constitutionally you can deport the baby who was born here. In this case, I'm actually more in agreement with you than not as I think that represents a middle of the road solution; send them back and allow the child back at start of high school if they have family here who can take care of them, otherwise, they stay out until age 18. But again, I don't think the constitution allows that. Easier said than done to fix.

    8. Definition is everything

      So we have a selectively open border.

      An open border is a border that enables free movement of people between different jurisdictions with limited or no restrictions to movement. A border may be an open border due to intentional legislation allowing free movement of people across the border or a border may be an open border due to lack of adequate enforcement or adequate supervision of the border which allows the free movement of people across the border combined with inadequate detection and inadequate enforcement within the jurisdiction to ensure people have in fact entered through authorized border controls.

    9. Max how many American are killed by illegals every day?

  2. “So you’re going to split up families?” Todd asked sharply. “You’re going to deport children?”

    Trump answered that he’d keep families together but that the entire family would have to leave the country.

    “What if they have no place to go?” Todd shot back.

    “We will work with them, they have to go,” Trump replied. “Chuck, we either have a country, or we don’t have a country.”

    1. As Fiorina pointed out, this is kind of magical thinking. When I saw this yesterday, I have to admit, I actually had some enjoyment watching Trump. Mostly because, he is enjoying himself. He doesn't have donors to answer to and he can literally, I mean literally, say anything he wants and not get an ounce of pushback. In contrast, the other candidates, who are held to the laws of reality, look kinda pissed and bitter.

      So William, how do you feel about Trump's acknowledgement that he won't rip up the Iran deal on day one?

    2. What if they have no place to go?

      They are returned to their home country.

      It's their home countries responsibility.

      Americans first, then we look at our countries needs and work from their.

      Temporary work permits then they go home.

      No we do not split up families, the entire family goes home.

      Begins with enforcing immigration law right after punishing all business that employ illegals.

    3. Nothing will happen, being politically correct is everything. The bleeding heart of America will continue to bleed until the country runs out of blood.

  3. Max and Lou.
    Interesting comments from both and of interest to us in Aussie because we have recently experienced a major problem with illegal arrivals. Here it tore the country apart politically and resulted in the fall of the socialist government which presided over the episode for six years.

    Our problem was so called refugees from around the world who managed to get to Indonesia. Small leaky boats were provided by unscrupulous Indonesians and they set sail for Australian territory. The illegal were charged some thousands of dollars for passage, the boats were unseaworthy and many hundreds were drowned at sea. Fifty thousand or so arrivals were placed in detention, supervised community living and other forms of so called protection.

    The new Conservative government immediately stopped the traffic by a large increase in border protection vessels and the introduction of a turn back policy. Boats were simply stopped and either towed back to Indonesian waters or in some cases, lifeboat type vessels were provided. The traffic immediately stopped and should any boats arrive, the occupants are sent to Papua New Guinea of Naru.UNHCR have been advised that no such arrivals will ever be settled in Australia.

    As you can see from the above, the problem is solved from an Australian perspective and if more thought as Lou does, the problem is solvable in your country also. Max, with many of the views you express here, I can either agree or at least see your point of view. In the present instance, I think you need to look at the complete picture. An illegal entry is simply what the term indicates. Perhaps the Thumper has a point, just perhaps, the credible candidates could embrace this, the small kernel of gold from the dross that he continually spouts.

    Cheers from Aussie

    1. The original intent of the post is to realize we have a problem. Most people ignore of refuse to acknowledge the extent of the ongoing problem. Our southern neighbors push people to the US encourage them to send money to the home country. The illegals in the US send in excess of 23 billion to Mexico to support their Mexico families. A total of 120 billion leave the US each year to home countries.

      The problem in the US today is the left and right are afraid to address the issue as potential future voters, cheap labor, are disincentives to close the border and address the 30-40 million illegals in the US.

    2. King, I do see a bigger picture. I can't deny that illegals here are 1) breaking the law, 2) consuming resources they don't entirely pay for, 3) help to drive down wages in unskilled jobs. The anchor baby situation is a problem that doesn't have any easy fix. Contrary to what is said, I don't think it's fair to claim that everyone left of center lives in oblivion to the issue.

      where I start to diverge from Lou is in how much I'm willing to spend to fight the problem and where I'm willing to spend that money. I think that at some point, we can spend so much money trying to fight influx of illegal immigrants that we eventually start to lose more than we gain. This will not be considered in any way, shape or form by those right of center. I'm willing to spend money on prosecuting businesses that hire them, and I'm willing to deport those who are caught. But, we have turned a blind eye not just in Democrat administrations, but literally for decades. Reagan gave an amnesty, and others have too, because it is is easier, and most importantly, because it means votes. If I hear the same unrelenting outrage when a Republican POTUS takes similar inaction, I will be happy to sit back and let them solve it however they see fit.

    3. As I stated earlier, it's easy to get illegals to leave.

      End their ability to get a job and make a living in the US. Fine the employers over and over and over again. eventually the employers will get the idea that hiring illegals is very expensive.

      We spend nothing to enforce the law. We spend a great deal going through the motions.

      See below for the latest released by your caring government.

  4. Released by ICE.

    Still feel free and safe???

    -Musa Salah Abdelaziz Abdalla, 34, of Sudan, who has had multiple arrests for assault in Texas and Arizona. Abdalla violated probation three times and was sentenced to 13 months in prison in June 2014. Last month, he was released from prison and turned over to ICE officials, who then released him into the public on the same day claiming they could not locate travel documents proving his citizenship in Sudan.

    -Dennis Valerievitch Tsoukanov, 33, of Russia, who along with two accomplices, kidnapped, beat and stabbed a police informant before pouring gasoline on him and setting him on fire in 2001. After testifying against his accomplices, he was given a 13-year sentence. Tsoukanov was released on Dec. 21, 2014, and turned over to ICE. He was released last month after ICE once again could not locate his travel documents.

    - Nasser Hanna Hermez, 46, of Iraq, was charged with second-degree murder of his 7-week-old daughter in 2009. He pleaded guilty to negligent homicide and received a six-month prison sentence and three years’ probation. He was arrested in April for burglary, and sentenced to another two years’ probation. ICE released Hermez, citing his status as a legal permanent resident.

  5. I suggest we repurpose PP abortion mills into deportation centers. Out of the box thinking for our oh so modern fucking world.
