Minutemen to protest lack of border security in Washington

The Minutemen are going to the District of Columbia to demonstrate against the lack of proper immigration enforcement. From the NY Sun:
Hundreds of Minuteman Project volunteers are planning to abandon on Wednesday their posts at the country's borders and instead direct their energies toward the Senate. The civilian patrol group, whose members President Bush has described as "vigilantes," will plant itself on the Senate lawn and "invite all 100 senators to come and speak to us about the chaotic lack of immigration law enforcement," the group's founder, James Gilchrist, said.

Wednesday's demonstration represents an effort by the Minutemen to shape the immigration debate in Washington the same way its border activities have brought national attention to the estimated 485,000 illegal immigrants slipping into America each year. Their goal at the capital: to tell the Senate "no" to a guest-worker program and "no" to an amnesty.
When Dubya calls them vigilantes, is that meant to be a put-down description?

The Minutemen aren't the only ones angry at the US government for its failure to take responsibility. In Ohio, the Wash. Times reports:
An Ohio sheriff has billed the Department of Homeland Security $125,000 for the cost of jailing illegal aliens arrested on criminal charges in his county, saying he's angry that the federal government has failed in its responsibility to keep them out of the United States.

Butler County Sheriff Richard K. Jones yesterday said that although the government may not be legally obligated to pay the three bills he has sent since November, he intends to send similar ones every month until the federal government gains control of the border.

He said 900 foreign-born inmates have been booked into the crowded Butler County jail in the past year.

"Why should Butler County taxpayers have to pay for jail costs associated with people we don't believe should ever have been in this country, let alone this state or county, to begin with?" Sheriff Jones said. "They are in my jail because they have committed crimes here.
Of course they shouldn't have to pay so much money to deal with them. Which is why the Dubya administration would do well to cut it out with their wish to push an amnesty program, which is simply against the law.
The sheriff noted that recent immigration legislation being considered in Washington made no mention of holding Mexican President Vicente Fox or his country responsible for failing to secure its side of the U.S.-Mexico border. He said Mexico appears to be "doing little or nothing to stop anyone" from illegally crossing into America.
And this is despite the fact that a lot of these illegals may not even be of any Mexican background whatsoever. Some of them actually come from places like farther into south America, and even from Europe, and of course, the mideast. And some of them, lest we forget, are criminals. It raises the question as to if the Mexican government really is a friend of the US.

Yeah, I've heard quite a few tales of Arabs skipping the border in Arizona and Texas... that should be the real worry.
