Republican Gubernatorial Candidate: Make Texas Mexico’s Flophouse

(Some Old News From the Archive – Relevant to Politics today)

While Democratic governors in neighboring states were beginning to face up to the illegal immigrant flood from Mexico, the Republican candidate for governor of Texas, Carol Strayhorn, was publicly advocating that the state she seeks to govern should receive and support most illegal entrants with open arms. Strayhorn told an audience at the Greater Houston Pachyderm Club: “I sympathize with those coming over who want to put a roof over their heads. We can’t turn them away from the hospital steps.” The gubernatorial candidate’s one concession to border security—“We have to protect our borders from terrorists”—served only to underline her disregard for protecting her fellow Texans and Americans against the many other threats illegal aliens pose. In addition to stressing the obligation of the state to provide federal medical and educational aid to illegals, Strayhorn stressed her support for bilingual education to questioners at the club. Despite rising opposition to out-of-control immigration from across the American political spectrum, Carol Strayhorn is evidently taking her tactics from Republican National Committee chairman Ken Mehlman’s new playbook for wooing Mexicans, blacks, and other minorities (see “Immigration Control Congressman Backs Extension of Babel Law,” TOH, July 13, 2004). Bob Stein, a Rice University political scientist, speculated that Strayhorn’s refusal to take the increasingly popular stance in support of border control might be due to her reliance on campaign funding from homebuilders and highway construction firms that employ large numbers of illegals.

The Governors of Arizona and New Mexico – State of Emergency

(Some Old News From the Archive – Relevant to Politics today)

2005-08-17 Original Post

The governors of Arizona and New Mexico have declared a state of emergency along their borders with Mexico. Governor Bill Richardson of New Mexico and Governor Janet Napolitano of Arizona, both Democrats and liberals, attributed the step to uncontrolled immigration, and the crime and disruption that accompanies it, and placed the blame on the federal governments of the United States and Mexico. Governor Richardson declared that New Mexico’s border counties had been devastated by the ravages and terror of human smuggling, drug smuggling, kidnapping, murder, destruction of property and death of livestock. Richardson, who has Mexican ancestry, also suggested that a Mexican town used as a staging point for drug and people smuggling should get bulldozed. Neither governor faulted the work of the severely undermanned U.S. Border Patrol. Governor Napolitano, who strongly opposed last years successive ballot initiative to deny state aid to illegal aliens, complained yesterday that both federal governments let us down there doesn’t seem to be any sense of urgency. The state of emergency allows both governors to obtain several million dollars in federal government funding to deal with the depredations of illegal immigration, a drop in the bucket absent the resolve to enforce existing immigration laws, and to enact new ones and make them stick. Without such resolve, the immigration crisis on the border “and throughout increasing expanses of the heartland” can only worsen: a recent poll carried out in Mexico by the Pew Hispanic Center found that nearly one of every two Mexicans (46 percent) would live in the United States if they had the means and opportunity.
