"THE IMMIGRATION BLOG" (BLOGROLL IT)

Michelle Malkin has just launched a new group blog, "The Immigration Blog", which no doubt will become in short order the sine qua non to a comprehensive understanding of the threat to America's security that uncontrolled immigration represents and particularly with respect to this country's porous, southern, contiguous border with Mexico. Michelle will pace a team of well-regarded writers on the subject; and if, as with me, the knotty problem of illegal immigration is squarely on your short-list of "hot button" political issues, then you no doubt are already well aware of Michelle's incisive writing in this area. One just knows intuitively that Michelle and her co-bloggers will illuminate the subject and bring talented journalism to bear on a problem that more and more patriotic Americans rail about, but which, incomprehensibly, the president and both political parties turn a deaf ear to.

I strongly suggest that you place "The Immigration Blog" in your blogroll. You'll find it in mine under the heading, "Vincent Omnia Veritas," along with other excellent blogs/links on the subject.

And if you need a nudge in the direction of beginning to comprehend just how odious a problem illegal immigration is (and I've written a large number of posts on the subject), then take a look at this appalling story linked by Matt Drudge.

Members of a violent Central America-based gang have been sent to Arizona to target Minuteman Project volunteers, who will begin a monthlong border vigil this weekend to find and report foreigner sneaking into the United States, project officials say.

James Gilchrist, a Vietnam veteran who helped organize the vigil to protest the federal government's failure to control illegal immigration, said he has been told that California and Texas leaders of Mara Salvatrucha, or MS-13, have issued orders to teach "a lesson" to the Minuteman volunteers.

More than 1,000 volunteers are expected to take part in the Minuteman vigil, which will include civilian patrols along a 20-mile section of the San Pedro River Valley, which has become a frequent entry point to the United States for foreigner headed north.

About 40 percent of the 1.15 million foreign nationals caught last year by the U.S. Border Patrol trying to gain illegal entry to the United States were apprehended along a 260-mile stretch of the Arizona border here known as the Tucson sector.

This is a war, Dear Readers! Our country is being invaded from the south and illegal aliens are streaming across the border, being protected in their journey by armed thugs bent on brutalizing any Americans -- civilians and law enforcement agents, alike -- who dare stand in their way. Are we just going to allow our politicians in Washington to continue talking "Homeland Security" out of both sides of their mouths, while ignoring the clear and convincing danger that is uncontrolled immigration?
