Dem Congressman’s Son Arrested For Smuggling

 Illegals

The subject of illegal immigration and securing our borders has taken a back seat in recent months as the economy, especially housing and Wall Street, has surged to the forefront. If it were not for that, certainly this article from the St. Petersburg Times would be getting much more exposure: Rep. Boyd’s son accused of smuggling illegal immigrants. Alex Leary of the St. Petersburg Times reports:

The son of U.S. Rep. Allen Boyd, a Panhandle Democrat, is facing federal charges of smuggling illegal immigrants after being stopped by Border Patrol agents in Arizona.
John F. Boyd, 30, admitted picking up the passengers in the desert, authorities said. He was stopped Sunday at a border checkpoint near Willcox and a search dog indicated people might be hiding in the bed of the white Ford pickup he was driving.
Agents found two people under a piece of plywood, according to a federal complaint, and two more adults lying on the floorboard behind the front seat. A 6-year-old girl was in the passenger seat.
Methamphetamine and a loaded Beretta pistol were found, according to the complaint. It did not indicate who the items belonged to and no drug or weapons charges have been filed against Boyd. He has a preliminary hearing this morning in Tucson.

 

While parents should not be held responsible for the sins of their offspring for the most part, I’m fairly certain that had Boyd been a Republican, this article would have been in more newspapers this morning than just those in Florida and Tucson.

 

As for Rep. Boyd himself, his record on immigration has been mixed at best. According to the website OnTheIssues, while Boyd did vote for building a fence on the Mexican border in 2006, he’s consistently voted to loosen illegal immigration restrictions otherwise.

 

In the hardball world of politics, however, it might be helpful, when the Democrats complain about the rising unemployment rate, for someone to remind the public of the following. That the son of a Democratic Representative who supports loosening illegal immigration laws was just caught trafficking illegals who are coming into the United States to compete with American workers and drive down wages and average household incomes,  about which the Democrats complain loudly.

A campaign ad mocking Republican presidential candidate John McCain’s computer literacy is backfiring on Democratic rival Barack Obama in some very painful ways.

While McCain himself has often joked about his ignorance of email and phone texting, the Vietnam veteran rarely goes into the reason: his hands and fingers were shattered by wartime torture, making it painful to keyboard for any length of time.

That revelation has been buried in a Boston Globe story for nearly a decade and was uncovered by National Review columnist Jonah Goldberg last week. The news has enraged McCain supporters and stirred up political blogs.

Goldberg included this passage from the article, published on March 4, 2000:

“McCain gets emotional at the mention of military families needing food stamps or veterans lacking health care. The outrage comes from inside: McCain’s severe war injuries prevent him from combing his hair, typing on a keyboard, or tying his shoes. Friends marvel at McCain’s encyclopedic knowledge of sports. He’s an avid fan — Ted Williams is his hero — but he can’t raise his arm above his shoulder to throw a baseball.”

You wouldn’t know any of that from looking at the Obama ad, which mocks McCain as a techno-dolt. In a photograph taken from the early 1980s, he’s shown wearing giant glasses and a period suit. To hammer home the point that he’s out of touch, the ad features shots of a disco ball, antique computers and large, first-generation cell phones.

“1982, John McCain goes to Washington,” says the voiceover. “Things have changed in the last 26 years, but McCain hasn’t. “He admits he still doesn’t know how to use a computer, can’t send an e-mail, still doesn’t understand the economy, and favors two hundred billion in new tax cuts for corporations, but almost nothing for the middle class.”

The ad was supposed to be the first stage of the new, gloves-off, Obama strategy to counter the popular rise of Sarah Palin. But the campaign, now sensitive that it might be perceived as mocking the handicapped, responded that McCain has admitted numerous times that he is learning how to use a Blackberry and other devices.

“There’s a whole economic revolution going on that has fundamentally changed the economy and fundamentally changed people’s lives, and he’s removed from that,” Rahm Emmanuel, an Illinois congressman and key Obama supporter, told reporters Friday in unveiling the ad.

But that doesn’t seem to be the case. McCain has long been praised as one of the tech-saaviest members of the U.S. Senate.

In 2000, Slate.com cited him for what it described as a web first: “the first-ever cyber fundraiser.” The article also noted that McCain’s war wounds limited him at the keyboard, but described him as an enthusiast who embraced Silicon Valley entrepreneurs like Amazon.com founder Jeff Bezos. That same year, Forbes magazine described McCain as the “Senate’s savviest technologist.”

You, the American workers, are the best in the world. But your economic security has been put at risk by the greed of Wall Street. That’s unacceptable.

My opponent’s only solutions are talk and taxes.

I’ll reform Wall Street and fix Washington. I’ve taken on tougher guys than this before.
