"I thought the wailings we heard at night were the coyotes barking at the moon. I didn't know until later that these sounds were the cries of women being raped in the Mexican desert, some less than a hundred yards away from the border.
"There was absolutely nothing anyone could do about it," said Mr. Donnelly, grimacing as he turned away to hide his emotions. "It's something you never forget."
Tim Donnelly, of the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps, to the Washington Times, November 21, 2005.
When a "coyote" illegally takes a Mexican woman or girl across the border into America, he doesn't just take every cent she has; more often than not, he takes her virtue, as well. The majority of Mexican females invading the U.S., including children as young as seven, are raped along the way, both on Mexican and American soil. Gang-raped. The Mexican rapists proudly proclaim their crimes by tossing their victim's undergarments on the branches of the nearest tree.
The rape tree.
Hal Netkin, a veteran patriotic immigration reform activist who runs the Web site, L.A. Watchdog, sent me an introduction to the above five-minute documentary, The Price of Admission, by Truth on the Border, which Netkin has posted at his site. (I took Halâ€™s title for my own.)
"Many human smugglers consider rape a part of 'the price of admission' for women and young girls illegally entering the U.S.
Victims are taken to an isolated area and raped.
The garments represent "trophies of conquest."
It is not uncommon to find dozens of sets of undergarments around a rape tree."
Hal Netkin anticipates and responds to what the Open Borders Lobby would say, were the MSM—you know, those folks who constantly broadcast their concern about the welfare of girls and women and, especially, "women of color"—to end their long silence about the rape trees:
"You will hear advocates for illegal aliens claim that if we had "Comprehensive Immigration Reform" that the problem of rape wouldn't occur because "everyone" would immigrate legally thus avoiding the need for human smugglers. To anyone who believes this, I want to sell you the Brooklyn Bridge.
My wife who is a Mexican immigrant and a naturalized U.S. citizen, petitioned for three of her siblings in Mexico so that they could immigrate legally. Guess what, even though they could have immigrated legally, they decided to come illegally anyway. Why? Because as all Mexicans know, if you can get passed the border, you can enjoy all the benefits that legal immigrants enjoy — BUT SOONER! — get here, and it is virtually "legal to be illegal."
Rather than stopping the invasion, an amnesty of the approximately 30 million illegal aliens currently at large in our country, such as "Obama" has sought to ram through, by hook (also here) or by crook, since before invading the Oval Office, would draw tens of millions more invaders, in a jailbreak-style run on the border. You know, like when a quarterback seems to be getting rushed by all 11 opposing players, the coaches, water boys, and all their relatives? Well, in place of that terrified, scrambling quarterback, imagine our handcuffed, outmanned, outgunned Border Patrol, and you'll get the picture.
And yet, what is a nightmare image to patriotic Americans would be a dream come true for the John Doe calling himself "Barack Obama."
