A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

Question answered: Nearly two weeks ago I pointed out a story in the San Diego Union-Tribune about the Mexican consulate in full-outrage mode because some illegal aliens had been arrested within a block of the consulate.

My question a the time was: "Just how large is the radius around the consulate within which Border Patrol agents are prohibited from enforcing immigration laws? "

Well, I've got my answer.



The answer is the checkpoints on I-5 and I-15, at the border and on public transportation.

So, if you're an illegal alien and manage to get across the border, you need not worry about the pesky Border Patrol as long as you stay in San Diego County and don't ride the bus.

If that insanity isn't bad enough, just look at some of the hypotheticals that are now in play when it comes to law enforcement.


(Shawn) Moran (communications director for Local 1613 of the National Border Patrol Council) said the order effectively bars agents from stopping to talk to suspected illegal immigrants, even if they recognize them as criminals who have been deported in the past.

"If we're going down the street and we see somebody we've deported for child molestation or some other crime, even if they're walking down the street holding some child's hand, there's nothing we can do about it," he said.


This is just plain nuts -- and Bush had better do something about it.
