Mexican Migration pamphlet helps illegal aliens enter US

MEXICO CITY - The Mexican Foreign Ministry on Tuesday defended a government pamphlet that offers advice to migrants illegally crossing the border into the United States, saying it was trying to help save lives without encouraging people to break the law.

"Last year, more than 300 Mexicans died on the border," Foreign Ministry Undersecretary Geronimo Gutierrez told the Houston Chronicle. "Our government has a commitment to defend the lives of its citizens."

In 32 pages of text and comic-book-style illustrations, the paperback, Guide for the Mexican Migrant, gives pointers on navigating deserts and swimming rivers safely.

I think the most telling statement is "Last year, Mexicans living in the United States sent a record $15 billion to their loved ones back home, providing Mexico with its second biggest source of foreign revenue after oil."

The barbarians have over run the gate, and no one seems to care.

Spring Cleaning

You'd think I would have taken advantage of the nice weather we had this spring and cleaned the apartment. No I wait until mid-January, when it's 29 degrees out. It's being done out of necessity, otherwise I never would have done it. Right now I'm moving everything from the master bedroom-turned living room and into the intended living room. And I'm tossing almost everything, 15 years of accumulated shit.

On a side note, The Jets lost to the Steelers yesterday. They almost won, if Doug Brian hadn't missed two field goal attempts. Still, The Steelers were a better team. I'm surprised the Jets made it as close as they did. Next year.

And there's still no hockey.

Is it me or is Geddy's voice totally shot? I saw them live last year and he didn't sound like this. He pulled this song off just fine.
And I hate to be a whiny bitch, but where's the support for Califonia's problems? We don't deserve help? Even the guesture would be appreciated.

a good day for the Seery Clan

So today Jess and I went to the OB-GYN and saw the sonogram of our baby for the first time. It was just a little peanut. It's and odd sensation. Jess's pregnancy became a reality for me. There are no words in the english language to describe the emotions I'm feeling.
Now the planning begins. The apartment needs to be updated, Jess needs to get a transfer, and what the frigg am I going to do about these cats?

Today I also found out that my sister Trudi is pregnant. The family's growing fast as of late.

Sheriff posts snipers after firing 27 workers

JONESBORO, Georgia (AP) -- On his first day on the job, the new sheriff called 27 employees into his office, stripped them of their badges, fired them, and had rooftop snipers stand guard as they were escorted out the door.

The move Monday by Clayton County Sheriff Victor Hill provoked an angry reaction and prompted a judge to order him to rehire the employees.

"It appears ... that employees of the Sheriff were terminated without cause" and in violation of the county's civil service rules, Judge Stephen Boswell wrote in granting a 30-day restraining order.

Hill, 39, defended the firings and said the new sheriff has the right to shake up the department in whatever way he feels necessary. He told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that he fired the employees to "maintain the integrity of the department."

"A lot of people are under the impression that the sheriff's office is under civil service laws," he said. "But my research shows the employees work at the pleasure of the sheriff."

The firings had a racial overtone. Hill was among a spate of black candidates elected last year in the county once dominated by rural whites. The county seat was the setting for the fictional plantation Tara in "Gone With The Wind."

The fired employees included four of the highest-ranking officers, all of them white. Hill told the newspaper their replacements would be black.

Another of the newly elected black officials, Eldrin Bell, called the move illegal and filed for the restraining order granted by the judge. Bell is the new county commission chairman and former Atlanta police chief.

Hill said the manner in which he fired the workers -- including taking some deputies home in vans normally used to transport prisoners because the deputies were barred from using county cars -- was necessary.

He cited the assassination of Sheriff Derwin Brown in neighboring DeKalb County in 2000. Brown was gunned down in the driveway of his home three days before he was to be sworn in. Former sheriff Sidney Dorsey was found guilty of plotting to kill him and sentenced to life in prison.

"Derwin Brown sent out letters to 25 to 30 people letting them know they would not be reappointed when he took office," Hill said.

The sheriff's department employs 345 workers.
