A Border Patrol Patriot Joins The Resistance

As the Treason Lobby and the
Department of Homeland Security`s own

Secretario Ridge
gear up to peddle another illegal

amnesty disaster
, there are many sources of
resistance within the informal immigration reform

that is gradually organizing across the

The most unrepentant opponents of this

men with guns
who know the deserts of the

Mexican border
, know the immigration law, and worked
in government the last time around during the 1986
Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA)

.  Men like John W. Slagle, that is.

With the current release of his
memoirs documenting a thirty-year career in immigration
law enforcement, the retired intelligence analyst and
U.S. Border Patrol veteran joins the proud ranks of
patriotic opposition to another illegal alien amnesty.

His new book, Illegal Entries,
made its debut last week on the internet as an e-book.

Illegal Entries

the career of a dedicated special agent
and patrolman who is not so easily fooled.

Slagle is a student of reality—the
harsh reality of Border Patrol anti-smuggling operations
from the onion fields of Presidio, Texas, to the citrus
groves of Florida, and all the way down to Guatemala.

He knows the art of “cutting
” in the desert, and how to successfully pull
off an undercover cocaine buy-and-bust with a million
dollars of real money. 

He`s a guy you would want watching
your back during

freight train
inspections in the desolate railroad
yards of South Texas.

Slagle doesn`t try to rival
accomplished immigration writers like 

Peter Brimelow

Michelle Malkin
.  He doesn`t have to. Instead, his
experience speaks volumes.

Here Slagle reflects on America
before the Immigration Disaster:

“Prior to [Slagle`s]
military service in 1963 and after, most Americans were

mowing their own lawns
, raising gardens, working at

service trades
, construction to meat-packing
industries and raising families.  In the mid-west farm
fields of Missouri, crops were brought in each year with
the help of hired help, mostly

local high school students
.  City parks were well
tended and people

cared for their own children
.  Wages were not great,
but there was always employment.  U.S. citizens and
legal resident aliens worked hard for decades, but now
suddenly we`re

all the working class people

no longer want
to work. Talk about a
con-job, the elite need to get out and see the
real world that even by California standards is in plain

immigration arm:

enforce the laws of the United States under the

I & N Act
but were there, it seems, for service
social work.”


Service side
is an extremely liberal forgiving
mother that welcomes all people into her house with few
reservations or thoughts that she could be betrayed. 

strict enforcement side
is the Bastard son that
ensures that the family silver is not carted away by
guests without invitations, or people whose goal is the
total destruction of the house.

Service side sees only the best in all humanity, acting
under the same Congressional I & N Act.  One side sees
rainbows and diversity, the other side sees an ugly
reality and the need for enforcement to monitor certain
non-immigrant classes that could pose a threat to the
United States—criminal
as well as

subversive terrorist factions

Slagle on the moral hazard of our
immigration disaster:

“Once a section of territory is lost, it`s hard to back track and regain
that area again, despite best intentions. Laws are

established by Congress
to be obeyed and enforced,
not subject to political correctness of the times.  An
expired driver`s license in any state means arrest or
fines for the vehicle operator.  Expired

U.S. visas
are far more serious.

on the Bush Administration—particularly relevant as it
prepares another Amnesty offensive:

“The war on terrorism was a righteous sound
decision by the President of the U.S. that I fully
support and will continue to support, but on immigration
issues, Amnesty, we part company.  The 1986 Amnesty was
a total and complete failure.”

“…Amnesty and the
Immigration Reform Act did not slow down or halt illegal
migrants but actually

made the situation worse.

If America is ever going to pull
itself out of its current federally-induced illegal
immigration disaster, members of Congress and other
assorted government bureaucrats flying desks inside the
Beltway need to start listening to the real—and

—voices of experience in immigration
law enforcement.

The nation`s most experienced
immigration officers and agents, like John Slagle, would
be glad to give the federal immigration bureaucracy a
lesson in reality.

If the policymakers would only

Funny, isn`t it…folks like John
Slagle never seem to spend their retirement years
supporting the Treason Lobby`s gaggle of

“open borders”


, phony lobbying organizations and

illegal alien front groups

The reason: they know better.
