Congress Considers Destructive Border Security Proposals - by Center for Biological Diversity

Murrieta protestors willfully ignorant of U.S. role in creating brutal governments - by Gil Villagran, MSW
Who are the people on Border Patrol buses at Murrieta, CA. and why are they invading our nation? The protestors seem oblivious to America’s origin by illegal immigrants to the so-called new world, later to Mexico (now called the Southwest). Patriots would do well to spend their 4th of July, researching our own history. An Internet search of “U.S. sponsored death squads” documents our sordid history of fomenting military takeovers of democratically elected governments in almost every n...

Cinco de Mayo—or the fifth of May—commemorates the Mexican army’s 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War (1861-1867).
