Default Illegals Attacking Pets of Border Ranchers

That the US Government has failed to protect it's citizens cannot be
questioned. We need a border wall, most cost effective method to
control flow of illegals. Meantime, military forces are needed to
provide logistical support for the overwhelmed Border Patrol. The 6,000
National Guardsmen being dispatched are almost a sick joke. Hopefully,
the House of Representatives will hold fast in support of their tough
immigration reform bill. The Senate and their bill could be called
"Ship of Fools" or a manifestation of senility.

The politically correct Arizona Star calls the illegal aliens who are

trying
to drive white Americans out of the border area simply "border crossers."
This kind of attack on ranchers and their animals is part of a concerted
effort by Mexico to drive Americans out of the border areas and

effectively
move the border north in increments. This is the same tactic SWAPO used

in
Southwest Africa and Zanu PF used in Zimbabwe to make lives hell for white
ranchers.

ARIVACA - Sandy Schlesinger thought he had an unspoken accord with the
illegal entrants who passed through his property on a nearly daily basis.
He filled their water jugs and gave them tortillas before sending them on
their way and calling the Border Patrol.
A couple of weeks ago, though, the rules changed.
Schlesinger heard his dog, a German wire-haired pointer and black Labrador
mix named Gobbler, barking from his outdoor kennel early in the morning.

He
looked out the window and saw a border crosser with his arm outstretched,
standing a few feet from his kenneled dog. Schlesinger thought the man was
perhaps working up the nerve to move close enough to pet the dog. When
Schlesinger went outside, he saw a group of eight people and gave them

water
before they left.
Schlesinger didn't realize until three days later that his dog was blind,
the result he says of the border crosser shooting pepper spray into
Gobbler's eyes.

Schlesinger didn't realize until three days later that his dog was blind,
the result he says of the border crosser shooting pepper spray into
Gobbler's eyes.
When Gobbler's veterinarian said Schlesinger's dog had been pepper-sprayed
and blinded because it was not treated immediately, the owner realized

what
had happened.
"Animals act differently," Schles-inger said. "You and I would run

screaming
for water, but he didn't."
Damage was so severe in one of Gobbler's eyes, the vet had to inject it

with
steroids and sew it shut. The other eye is open, but blind and the dog is
still being treated daily with medications and eyedrops.
Because Schlesinger lives in a rural area 35 miles from the Mexican

border,
he doesn't think Gobbler is safe living there without his eyesight. Days
after the vet treated the dog, a rattlesnake slithered into Gobbler's pen.
Schlesinger was able to remove the snake before Gobbler - in his blinded
state - stepped on it.
"He's totally defenseless. He can't see. I need to find another place for
him. He's not safe here," Schlesinger said.
Since the incident with Gobbler, other area residents are concerned for

the
safety of their companion animals, too.


We need 30,000 troops on the border now to stop the flood of illegals and to
protect
American citizens.
