Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colo., has reluctantly come to the conclusion that he will have to vote for Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., whose immigration reform bill Tancredo blasted as amnesty.

“Sometimes I say to myself, ‘Can I really do this?’” Tancredo said of voting for McCain, according to the Rocky Mountain News. “And then you listen to Obama or Hillary and say, ‘Yeah, I have to.’”

At a debate last October Tancredo sounded less sure of such an idea.

“You know, I’ve said I don’t know how many times, that I am absolutely tired and sick and tired of being forced to go to the polls and say I’m going to make this choice between the lesser of two evils. I really don’t intend to do that again. I am hoping, of course, that whoever we nominate will be the principled flag carrier for the Republican Party. But if that is not the case, no, then I will not support them.”

Tancredo told the News he couldn’t vote for Libertarian presidential candidate Bob Barr, who has similar views as he does on immigration, because Barr has “a blind spot on radical Islam.”

EL PASO, Texas ? El Paso County officials want the federal government to take over transporting and caring for wounded Mexican police officers seeking treatment in a local public hospital.

County Judge Anthony Cobos pleaded for help Tuesday, four days after two police officers wounded in an ongoing turf war among powerful Mexican drug cartels were brought to the county hospital in El Paso.

The officers’ arrival prompted the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office to provide tight security to prevent Mexico’s violence from spilling into the United States. It is the second time this year deputies have guarded the county hospital, the only Level 1 trauma center for 280 miles.

“This is the responsibility of the federal government,” Cobos said after meeting with officials from Homeland Security, the U.S. Army and other agencies. “Don’t put the burden on the local community. This is clearly the result of the federal government’s policy on the war on drugs.”

Cobos said the county doesn’t have the money to fund massive security efforts every time a wounded police officer, or anyone else caught up in Mexico’s ongoing violence, seeks medical care in the U.S. He also questioned the laws and policies that federal officials have used to allow these wounded officers into the United States.

The State

COLUMBIA, S.C. — U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham fended off a primary challenge Tuesday from a Republican who accused the one-term incumbent of being too liberal for South Carolina while criticizing his ties to John McCain and their work on failed immigration reform.

Graham won with 67 percent of the vote compared with 33 percent for challenger Buddy Witherspoon, a retired orthodontist and former Republican National Committee member.

Graham had a dominating war chest and name recognition and few observers believed his re-election bid was in danger. McCain, after all, did win the January primary here and Graham has used his endorsement in television ads.

“Principled compromise is the lifeblood of democracy and those who seek principled compromise to advance their state and their nation are doing what the voters want,” Graham said in his victory speech.

It was a vindication compared to a year ago at the state GOP convention, when the crowd booed and shouted “No” at Graham’s explanations of the immigration bill. He became the butt of criticism from conservatives and Rush Limbaugh labeled the proposal “Grahamnesty.”

Graham had a huge financial advantage. His most recent filing showed he spent $3.2 million through May 21 and had $4.5 million on hand. Witherspoon had spent $211,356 and had $94,484 on hand after borrowing $220,000 to run his campaign.

PORTSMOUTH ? A Mexican native who has been living in the country illegally went to a woman for a haircut on Saturday afternoon when he pushed her down, restrained her by force and raped her, said police.

Arraigned in Portsmouth District Court on Monday, Alfonso Mendoza, 52, of the Stonecroft Apartments, was charged with aggravated felonious sexual assault forcible rape and ordered held on $100,000 cash-only bail.

Prosecutor Corey MacDonald told the court Mendoza had propositioned the victim, a barber, in the past, but she repeatedly refused his advances.

After Mendoza raped her, said MacDonald, he went to his job at a Newington restaurant, phoned the alleged victim and told her “not to tell anyone.”

“He told her the police won’t believe her because she does not speak English and he does,” said MacDonald.

“I am innocent,” said Mendoza by video from the Rockingham County House of Corrections.

Judge Sawako Gardner set the $100,000 cash-only bail and ordered Mendoza to have no contact with the victim, to stay away from the Stonecroft Apartments and to return to the court for a June 17 probable cause hearing.

MacDonald said he will be notifying immigration authorities in the meantime.

On Monday night, June 10th, CU?s Dr. Albert Bartlett presented to an overflow crowd at Boulder?s Chautauqua Park?a compelling reality check on energy and overpopulation. Current energy prices indicate ?symptoms? of our greater dilemmas as to water, clean air, food and natural gas shortages. We import a ?perfect storm? of consequences into our country monthly.

He said, ?Our solutions have created more problems! Every time we add an extra lane to I-25, we create ever greater traffic flow. That, in turn, creates more air pollution and traffic gridlock. That creates greater demand and higher fuel prices. We cannot continue on our current consumption path.?
……
While he talked, I took notes that the USA imports 100,000 legal immigrants and an average of 82,000 illegal migrants every 30 days, month in and month out, year in and year out, our country grows by 2.1 million immigrants annually. (Source: www.cis.org and www.capsweb.org).

Average birthrate of American females equates to 2.03 children, which allows us a stable civilization. However, the March 2008 Pew Report projected the USA will add 100 million people by 2035, which is less than 30 years from now. Immigration forces two-thirds of that population growth. Additionally, the world grows by 77 million annually?thus we solve nothing, but we create an unsustainable future for our children.
