A Trip to the Arizona Border — Part 2

Posted: April 30, 2013 at 5:00 pm   /   by

On April 20, 2013, the Arizona Project sponsored a one-day round trip from the Phoenix area to the Mexican border.  Ron Ludders, Chairman of Arizona Project, was the trip leader and guide.

The first stop was to a drug smuggling drop-point near Casa Grande described at this link.  Another stop was at an Assembly of God Church, Miracle Valley, just three miles north of the Mexican border, where we heard from Pastor Dale Stoner.

In the 7-minute video below, Pastor Dale gives his first-hand view of the current border situation as well as his personal perspectives as a resident of the area for more than 20 years.

    Hence, the depth of deceit that is required in sustaining a life, a living, an existence in the the United States. 
    In their entirety, regardless, having just arrived, or having remained here twenty or thirty plus years, an illegal alien must maintain a life of deception, be it through identity theft, social security fraud, or establishing a means for monetary gains by acquiring a federal taxpayer I.D. number in order to qualify for every ounce of  feigned/pampered compassion and guidance to benefits that Liberalism has created for them.

    1. @rofomoreno “feigned compassion”
      YES, exactly!

  2. dleeper47 says:

    I wonder if fraudulently obtaining a taxpayer ID and fraudulently receiving federal benefits constitutes the kind of crime that will prevent an illegal from being legalized(?).  If so, a great many will not “come forward” and will continue their current “in the shadows existence”(?).
    This is a very complex situation …

    1. @dleeper47 Yes, one that seems increasingly unlikely to be fixed to anyone’s satisfaction.
