Mr President,
       Allowing the US Border Patrol to make reports on the activities of private US Citizens to the Government of Mexico is a high crime worthy of impeachment.
       According to the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin:
U.S. tipping Mexico to Minuteman patrols

By Sara A. Carter, Staff Writer

While Minuteman civilian patrols are keeping an eye out for illegal border crossers, the U.S. Border Patrol is keeping an eye out for Minutemen -- and telling the Mexican government where they are.

According to three documents on the Mexican Secretary of Foreign Relations Web site, the U.S. Border Patrol is to notify the Mexican government as to the location of Minutemen and other civilian border patrol groups when they participate in apprehending illegal immigrants -- and if and when violence is used against border crossers.

A U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesman confirmed the notification process, describing it as a standard procedure meant to reassure the Mexican government that migrants' rights are being observed.

And worse is the report also in the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin:

However, the Mexican report also contains specific information on civilian groups operating much farther inside the United States.

For example, the document notes that 50 Minuteman volunteers work in Chicago, focusing mainly on employers who hire illegal immigrants.

Minuteman volunteers said specific information -- such as the number of volunteers and their plans -- could have been provided only by law enforcement officials at that time. The document credits the various Mexican consul general offices in the U.S. with providing the information to the Mexican Foreign Secretary for the reports.

"How did they know the number of volunteers in Chicago? And why should the Mexican government care?" asked Connie Hair, spokeswoman for the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps in Washington, D.C.


Mr President - Why is the US Government reporting the activities of US Citizens to a foriegn government?

Why aren't the existing immigration laws being enforced? Why does the Government of Mexico dicate how the US Border Patrol will operate?

Why are You, Mr President, endangering my family by not securing the borders?

I support your impeachment.
