The victims of illegal immigration
President Bush accuses those of us who want to secure America's borders and fully enforce our immigration laws of lacking "compassion."
Huh. Well, I have yet to hear an ounce of compassion from President Bush for America's countless casualties of lax immigration enforcement.
Where's the sympathy for innocent, law-abiding citizens who have lost their lives at the hands of illegal aliens and their open-borders
Nope, we haven't heard a word about the victims as the White House pours on its unadulterated pro-illegal alien rhetoric and "undocumented
workers do the jobs Americans won't do" propaganda all in support of a massive, ill-timed, bureaucratic nightmare-inducing amnesty plan
that will inevitably increase illegal immigration.
Last week, a notorious illegal alien serial killer who traipsed freely across the U.S.-Mexican border during a 25-year, escalating crime spree
popped up in the news again. The case of Angel Resendiz, a convicted death row murderer in President Bush's home state of Texas, is a timely
reminder of the deadly costs of our continued homeland security chaos.
Time and again, illegal alien day laborer Resendiz broke the law getting into our country; broke more laws while in the country; and then broke
the law repeatedly and brazenly after being released, deported, and allowed to return. His most brutal acts included the slayings of 12 people,
ranging in age from 16 to 81, which ended in 1999 when Resendiz surrendered to a Texas Ranger in El Paso. For the last seven years, Resendiz
has been perched comfortably on Death Row eating chocolate cream pies, watching Spanish-language television, whining about depression,
and selling locks of his hair on Internet auction sites.
His execution, scheduled for May 10, has been delayed pending yet another of his endless appeals claiming to be "insane."
As I recounted in my book Invasion, Resendiz entered and exited our country at will. From the time he was 14, he racked up arrests and
convictions ranging from trespassing, destruction of property, burglary, aggravated batter, and grand theft auto to carrying a loaded firearm
and false representation of U.S. citizenship. He had at least 25 encounters with U.S. law enforcement between August 1976 and August 1996,
when he was arrested and released for trespassing in a Kentucky railyard.

During that period, he was convicted at least nine times on several serious felon charges. He was deported to Mexico by the feds at least three
times and was "voluntarily returned" to Mexico at least four times without formal proceedings. Throughout 1998, the Border Patrol continued
its blind catch-and-release policy apprehending Resendiz seven times and letting him go on his own recognizance despite his massive
criminal record and three prior deportations. Shoddy fingerprint databases, immigration paperwork negligence, and unpoliced borders led to:
The bludgeoning death of Florida teenager Jesse Howell and the rape and strangulation murder of his fiancé, Wendy Von Huben.
The bludgeoning death of University of Kentucky student Christopher Maier and the rape and near-murder of his girlfriend, who survived
The murder of Leafie Mason, an elderly Texas whom Resendiz hammered to death with a fire iron.
The rape, stabbing, and bludgeoning death of Baylor College of Medicine researcher Claudia Benton.
The sledgehammer bludgeonings of Texas pastor Norman Sirnic and his wife, Karen.
The bludgeoning death of Houston teacher Noemi Dominguez.
The murder of elderly Texas widow Josephine Konvicka, who was killed with a grubbing hoe.
The murders of George Morber, shot in the head, and Carolyn Frederick, clubbed to death.
The last four of Resendiz's victims were murdered after Resendiz had been released by federal immigration officials even though there were
already warrants outstanding for his arrest.
Resendiz made a bloody mockery of our homeland security chaos. Congress and the White House are now preparing to add grave insult to
fatal injury by refusing to fix the persistent problems that facilitated Resendiz's crimes.
Campaigning for amnesty this week, President Bush mouthed the open-borders mantra against tough deportation policies and lectured
immigration enforcement advocates about their lack of sensitivity.
"I can understand it's emotional," he said, but "we're talking about human beings, decent human beings that need to be treated with respect."
I don't think the victims of "undocumented worker" Angel Resendiz would agree.

In Unhinged: Liberals Gone Wild
adj : affected with madness or insanity; [syn: brainsick, crazy, demented, distracted, disturbed, mad, sick, unbalanced]
The American Heritage Dictionary
*** Warning: Unhinged liberals are hazardous to the nation's health.
They're slashing your tires. Burning your lawns. Heaving pies at Republican pundits. Hurling racist epithets at minority conservatives. Nursing nutty conspiracy theories. And pining publicly for the murder of President Bush.
And they call us crazy?
In In Unhinged: Liberals Gone Wild, Michelle Malkin plays conservative Margaret Mead to the alien political creatures of the American Left. With uproarious detail and rollicking reportage, Malkin chronicles the bizarre world of leftists gone mad in their natural habitats: the mainstream media, academia, Hollywood, and Washington.
Unhinged unmasks liberals who've completely abandoned rationality and reality. They're taking chainsaws and bayonets to campaign signs. Running down political opponents with their cars. Setting fire to political opponents in effigy. Defacing war memorials. Swiping yellow ribbons off cars. And supporting the fragging of American troops.
In Unhinged, you'll meet:
- The Top 10 Unhinged Leftists, Celebrities, Media Liberals, and Politicians. - The Pennsylvania Democrat who repeatedly screamed "faggot" at his Republican opponents on the Senate floor. - The Florida Democrat who tried to run down former Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris with his Cadillac. - The Democrat congressman who claimed the capture of Saddam Hussein was staged by GOP operatives to help the Bush re-election campaign. - The veteran newsman who claimed that Bush advisor Karl Rove and Osama bin Laden are working hand-in-hand to help the Republican Party. - And hundreds more unhinged liberals gone wild!
With wit, wisdom, and a bullet-proof vest, Michelle Malkin ruthlessly and raucously skewers the myths of liberal tolerance, peace, and civility. Unhinged shows how conservatives are driving their opponents mad. The good news for liberals? Self-help starts here.
