Republican Primary A Referendum on Voter Beliefs

District 17 a Swing District on Border Security

When it comes to the number of illegal immigrants crossing
the border from Mexico each day, it comes down to who do you

Politicians such as Senator John McCain of Arizona put the
figure at around 15 to 20 million total population of
illegal aliens.

Border Patrol agents and such as groups as American
Resistance put the figure much, much higher - more than
twice as high - at around 42.5 million.

That means with an estimated increase in illegal aliens
since Jan 1 of this year, of close to to a half million new
immigrants - 449,052 - some experts have pegged illegal
immigrant population at about 43 million and growing by
10,000 per day for a yearly increase of more than 3.5

Listen to the men who patrol the border. According to the
local union of Border Patrolmen who work the Tuscon area,
"There are currently 15 to 20 million illegal aliens in this
country by many estimates, but the real numbers could be
much higher and the numbers increase every day because our
borders are not secure (no matter what the politicians tell
you - don't believe them for a second)".

What to do?

The Repubican Primary for Congressional District 17 is
actually a referendum on who you wish to believe, just as
the General Election will be a referendum on what kind of
representation the people of the Brazos River Valley and the
path of the old Chisholm Trail from the Mexican border to
the midwest really want.

One thing for sure, it's a national security issue and there
is no dispute about that between the two candidates with
experience in that area - Chuck Wilson, a Waco business man
who served as a CIA station chief in war-torn African
republics, and Dave McIntyre a retired Army Colonel and
Ph.D. who until recently trained doctoral candidates in the
art and science of homeland security.

When refugees who are nearly naked, without food or water or
shelter, begin to flow over the borders of Zimbabwe, Darfur
or The Sudan, how do governments respond to the crisis?

They tromp down crops, slaughter cattle and foul water
supplies. Though the situation is not as dire in America,
the propblem is still at crisis proportions as the North
American Continent becomes nearly borderless in a relentless
onslaught on the American economy.

Asked what to do about the problem, Chuck Wilson said "We've
got plenty of laws on the books. All we need to do is start
enforcing them."

Most Mexican nationals aren't here to stay, he reasons.
They're here to work and make money. They send whatever
money they don't spend on actually living here on back to
Mexico and usually return there for a few months each year.

While they're gone, he says, why not make it hot for those
who are applying for a visa when they return?

What if one has skipped out on a hospital emergency room
bill? Left the scene of an accident in which one was an
uninsured motorist? Has a string of unpaid traffic tickets?

One of the main requirements of obtaining a visa to stay and
work in the U.S. is to guarantee to the Department of State
that one will not become a public charge, a welfare

"That could be a reason to withold visa status," he
concluded in an interview with Hispanic Repubicn Club of
McLennan County President Duke Machado.

Queried on the matter, Dave McIntyre immediately began to
shake his head. Integral to the problem is the drug, illegal
alien, sex slave and weapons trade that crosses the border
every day, he says.

The culture is in crisis because local officials on the
American and Mexican sides of the border have been co-opted
by the hundreds upon hundreds of billions of dollars in
illicit profits, money that has to go somewhere and winds up
in the coffers of banks, housing developers, politicians,
judges, cops, and federal officers.

"We have to go after the corruption," he says.

Wilson has a similar attitude, but a different slant.

Though American officials don't say it, the govenment is
enjoying a windfall on taxes collected to support the Social
Security System, unemployment funds, welfare programs and
Medicare and Medicaid systems.

These workers can never use the funding withheld from their
pay because they are working on bogus social security
numbers, numbers they borrowed, bought or stole from
legitimate holders.

"It's kind of a back door way to bolster the system," he
said with a rueful smile.

Dr. McIntyre made an analogy to the Navy's dilemma on the
day of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941.

As of 1939, the Navy had a hundred obsolete battleships and

They only had seven aircraft carriers because most of the
nation's resources had been "sunk, no pun intended", he
said, into the floating fortresses and not flat-topped
floating airports. Airplanes are expensive to build, test
and prove. The fuel they burn is highly refined and
difficult to transport safely.

Therefore, aircraft carriers were considered an adjunct to
battleship formations and task forces.

Following the destruction of the battle wagon Navy at Pear
Harbor, naval authorities began to re-think the role of
carrier battle groups.

By the time the war ended, the U.S. Navy had about 100
aircraft carriers of all sizes and all descriptions - some
built as "attack" carriers from the keel up, others modified
from the hulls of tankers and cruisers, but all of them
capable of launching deadly air strikes of fighter-bombers,
torpedo launching planes and reconnaisance aircraft when
properly protected by a picket of destroyers and submarines.

The goal, then, is to "build critical infrastructure" to
correct the poor performance of the government of securing
the nation's borders, a key constitutional role of the
Federal mission, according to Dr. McIntyre.
