Doing What the Government Won't Do

Abraham Lincoln is credited with having once said, "The purpose of government is to do for people what they cannot do at all or do so well for themselves." When it comes to securing our boarders, however, it may be more accurate to say, "The purpose of the people is to do for themselves what government will not do so well or do at all."

We’ve had the Minuteman Project, a volunteer civilian border patrol group, for quite some time. Now, there is a story out of Arizona that is yet another example of the people doing what the government will not do: control the influx of illegal immigrants from Mexico.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio announced that approximately 100 volunteer posse and Sheriff's Deputies will soon begin randomly patrolling the desert areas and main roadways in southwest Maricopa County as a part of an operation to curb the flow of illegal immigrants entering the county.

"There are so many illegals trying to make it into the county that it's overwhelming my deputies, so I have called on members of my 3000 member volunteer posse to assist," says Sheriff Arpaio. "It's not only illegals we find and arrest out there, we've also made some recent huge drug seizures involving illegal aliens including nearly 100 pounds of methamphetamine and approximately three pounds of heroin."

Posse man Andrew Ramsammy, who was part of Tuesday's arrest team, says that he believes he represents many of his peers when he says that the posse is anxious to be a part of the Sheriff's solution to the immigration problem.

"As a group of law abiding people, we are fed up with the number of people who come into this county illegally. We're tired of the drugs that some of them bring to sell to our young people and we're ready and willing to assist the Sheriff's deputies in the fight against illegal immigration," says Ramsammy.
It’s amazing and sad that the United States government is not willing to protect our own boarders. However, I have a feeling that as this problem continues to go unchecked and as groups like the Maricopa County sheriff's posse continue to grow, illegals crossing the boarder might wish that the U.S. government had taken control of the boarder. The government wouldn't be nearly as tough on illegals as what these posses are likely to become.
