Here are some facts from tonight's program.
Mexican Ambassador to the United States Arturo Sarukhan, speaking to the Commonwealth Club of San Francisco, 9/10/07:
"If you listen to certain radio talk show hosts and certain cable networks, it would seem that Mexico is the first interested party in ensuring that the border is not secure. Nothing is further from the truth. Why? It's very simple. If there was to be a threat to the security of the United States by using the Mexico-U.S. border as a staging ground, the relationship as we have known it to this day would be over."

Illegal Alien ID Cards
The staff of Mayor Newsom in San Francisco hopes the proposed ID card for illegal aliens will be ready by early 2008. Current city "ID" cards...which provide proof of residence in the city and county of San Franciso...are primarily used to gain access to cheaper greens fee's on public golf courses... The mayor would like to expand their use to provide city residents access to city services, regardless of immigration status.
