El Paso economy's growth outpaces most cities

Taxpayer funded growth is not a good business plan nor a good indicator of true growth. Private businesses are the true market indicators. Increased troops and increased government hiring is not the answer for ELP.  (Jun 22, 2011 | post #1)

Hispanics Will "Live In Fear" If Sanctuary Cities Vanish

A-10 (warthog)is an airplane. They do a good job, but they don't land behind enemy lines to drop off/pick up or rescue folks. They provide firepower against enemy tanks and other artillary. I like hearing the sound of them overhead as they run their missions, but those are pilots we'll never meet on the ground. I'll take choppers and their pilots as the coolest any day.  (Jun 4, 2011 | post #607)

Hispanics Will "Live In Fear" If Sanctuary Cities Vanish

The FEDs needs to do their jobs in regards to illegal immigration; track, arrest and deport illegals regardless of family ties. As for santuary cities/towns/whatever they need to be dealt with harshly. By allowing illegals to stay you not only take away from citizens that need help, but your actions keep them down for generations.  (Jun 4, 2011 | post #605)
