Myrick: Is Hezbollah in Mexico?

Sue Myrick, who represents the Mint Hill area in the U.S. House of Representatives, released this video today bemoaning the U.S. Homeland Security for not taking seriously the threat of Hezbollah entering the country illegally along the Mexico border. The narrator of the video cites anecdotal evidence, while the Director of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, says there is no credible threat. Hezbollah has attacked American interests around the world, but has never directly threatened inside our own borders. Is Myrick correct that more attention should be paid to terrorism on the Mexican border?

There’s one for that, too: Myrick launches IPhone app

Rep. Sue Myrick announced today the launching of her very own IPhone app. The app synchronizes with her website content and provides instant access to videos, updates on current legislation, events and tour information. Constituents can also contact Rep. Myrick directly using the app.

Myrick on board with amicus brief in support of Arizona immigration law

Sue Myrick and 75 other members of of the House and Senate filed a brief is support of the Arizona immigration law. The Department of Justice is in the process of blocking Arizona from such a law, arguing that it is the federal government’s role to enforce immigration laws.

Says Myrick:

“Arizona has the right and the responsibility to protect itself and its citizens,” Rep. Myrick said. “It is clear that the federal government is not taking the steps necessary to secure our border, and make sure that immigration laws are enforced. The Arizona immigration law in question is perfectly legal and complies with the intent of Congress that the states assist in the enforcement of our nation’s immigration laws.”

Meanwhile, the first court hearing in the Obama administration’s lawsuit against Arizona’s new immigration law is taking place today.
