Numbers of Border Patrol So High, Mexican Restaurant Opens 2nd Site; Meanwhile La Bruja Takes Racial Profile Bill sb1070 to Supreme Court on April 25!
Jan Brewer recently claimed "SB 1070 was Arizona's way of saying that we won't wait patiently for federal action any longer. If the federal government won't enforce its immigration laws, we will." She is pushing this hate bill so far that she has argued it to the Supreme Court who will hear the case on April 25.
Brewer is pursuing this action even though the Border Patrol and ICE reports indicate we are at the lowest rate of so-called illegal entry in over a decade. The Arizona border towns are safe and crime is at an all time low.
Brewer's claims are baseless. There is no need for the racial profiling bill sb1070.
"The Emergency Border Security Supplemental Appropriations Act" enacted in 2010 has provided over $600 million of reinforcements for border security. We have 20,000 Border Patrol agents and 17,000 are on the U.S. - Mexico border.
The Act has brought so many Border Patrol agents to the Arizona border, one restaurant, Tachos Nachos, has named a Burrito after the Border Patrol Agents in their honor - "Border Patrol Burrito" or "BPB" for short. The Border Agents have increased this little Mexican Restaurant's business so much, they've opened up a second restaurant.
