Illegal Stabs U.S. Soldier

PHOENIX — A Valley soldier is fighting for his life after he was stabbed 11 days ago in his front yard.

Jason Okon is a three-year Army veteran who recently returned from Iraq, where he was awarded a Bronze Star for valor.

Soldier Stabbed After Return From Iraq

Elizabeth Okon said a man, later identified as 34-year-old Armando Martinez-Lozano, approached Okon with a knife and said something to him in Spanish. She said her husband told Martinez-Lozano to leave, and the other man stabbed Okon in the stomach and ran away.

Police said Martinez-Lozano is an illegal immigrant and the Immigration and Naturalization Service has placed a hold on him.

Okon’s family and friends said they think the stabbing was a hate crime because Okon is a decorated soldier. His wife said he often wore his camouflage around town and in their yard.

Elizabeth Okon is pregnant and the Okons have two daughters, ages 2 and a-half years and 8 months old, and sold almost all of their possessions in anticipation of their move to Wisconsin.

An illegal immigrant stabbing a decorated United States soldier.

There are no words.
The very first dang thing Martinez-Lozano did when he entered our country was to break the law…yes……. by coming in.

National surveys, administrative data and other sources indicate that the current (2007) illegal population is between 7 million and 20 million.
Brad Knickerbocker. “Illegal immigrants in the US: How many are there?”, The Christian Science Monitor, May 16, 2006.

20 million.

.. a think-tank that promotes stricter immigration standards and enforcement, testified in a hearing before the House of Representatives that “out of the 48 al-Qa-eda operatives who committed crimes here between 1993 and 2001, 12 of them were illegal aliens when they committed their crimes, 7 of them were visa overstayers, including 2 of the conspirators in the first World Trade Center attack, one of the figures from the New York subway bomb plot, and 4 of the 9/11 terrorists. In fact, even a couple other terrorists who were not illegal when they committed their crimes had been visa overstayers earlier and had either applied for asylum or finagled a fake marriage to launder their status.”

It’s not enough that we have to deal with Mexican drug cartels, health dangers..illegals bringing into our country drug-resistant tuberculosis, malaria, leprosy, plague, polio, dengue fever, and Chagas disease.

It’s not enough that illegals engage in work without authorization from the government, and receive medical care without paying one thin dime.

It’s not enough that illegals do ecological damage.

According to a Time magazine report (dated Sept 12, 2004), “They turn the land to a vast latrine, leaving behind revolting mounds of personal refuse..They steal vehicles..They poison dogs to quiet them.”

In addition to the obvious damage done to fragile deserts by hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens tramping through them are many other significant negative environmental impacts of expanded population.
(Jeffrey S. Passel. “Estimates of the Size and Characteristics of the Undocumented Population”, Pew Hispanic Center, March 21, 2005. )

It’s not enough that illegals cause economic damage and consume way more in government benefits than they contribute in taxes.
According to Federation for American Immigration Reform, California’s education system spends $7.7 billion each year caring for the children of illegal immigrants. The study did not estimate how many of the children were citizens.
(Brad Knickerbocker. “Illegal immigrants in the US: How many are there?”, The Christian Science Monitor, May 16, 2006. )

And, wer’e supposed to be guilted into feeling sympathy for the illegal Mexican immigrants who the media portrays as desperate job seekers without options in their own country.

Well, guess what.
Studies indicate that out of the Mexican immigrants who had been in the United States for two years, only 5 percent said they were unemployed before venturing north of the border,” article in the Seattle Times reported.

I’ll save my compassion for Elizabeth and Jason Okon and their family.

So, what do with this soldier killer?..or almost killer………who incidentally assaulted 3 police officers as well…
No, Martinez should not be deported.
That would lack compassion.

He should be given the royal treatment: The Death Penalty.

    Honestly, I don’t know why our country’s immigration policy suffers from multiple personality sydrome. One the one hand, we’re welcoming their unskilled labor, but on the other hand, we’re fearing the profound changes their numbers will most definitely bring to our beloved country. What the heck do we want? We don’t have a coherent policy…

    A rather odd way to say THANK YOU..don’t you think…
    or perhaps they do not like our glorious country , and just can’t find the door out…Go south young man and don’t stop until you reach…Peru!!!

  3. Nazareth says:

    Angel, I did a report on illegals causing deaths in this country, and every single day, 12 illegal aliens murder someone, and another 13 illegals kill someone by drinking and driving (most likely without liscences)- that’s 25 American murdered or killed by illegals every single day. There are 80,000 violent illegal alien rapists, murderers, etc running around free in this country right now, and something liek 90 violent criminals cross our border every single day. This is a HUGE huge problem that the media ingores for fear of being seen as politcally incorrect and ‘insensitive toward minorities’, yet they have no problem being insensitive to the rest of America by repressing htis information.

  5. GUNZ says:

    One really has to wonder what kind of BS agreements with Mexico do we NOT know about?

    This is very disturbing…

    I was reading an article about those 2 border agents earlier. It was Mexico that initiated that investigation and the prosecution of them. There is some weird crap about it all, and why nothing is really being done to stop it.

    If Mexico can dicate our border policy then why wouldn’t these illegal slime balls ‘think’ that they could get away with murder…

    We’ve been sold out. One of these days it’ll come out just how bad.

  6. LomaAlta says:

    Nice post Angel. As usual you make it easy to see the problem. Re what Nazareth said, I too came up with the figure of 12 murders and 13 drunk driving deaths a day by illegal aliens, from a cited source, and that figure over a year represents over 9000, some three times as many as murdered on 9/11. Pretty sad and very frightening.

    Thanks again for a nice post.

  7. Nazareth says:

    Yup lomaAlta, and since 9/11 almsot 43,000 Americans have been murdered or killed by illegal Aliens- Not that 3000 deceased soldiers in Iraq is insignificant, it’s a high figure- but my goodness, 43,000 Americans have been murdered here in the states since 9/11, and we’re not even in a war- that just goes to show how good a job our soldiers are really doing in Iraq, facing danger every day for 5 years now, and only 3000 or so killed. I know that sounds bad, but just trying to put it all in perspective because all we hear in the press is how much a ‘quagmire’ Iraq is. Well if Iraq is a quagmire’ the America must be a stinking Murder factory with so many people being murdered and killed- and by ILLEGALS!

  8. Nazareth says:

    I meant to say the 9000 figure was 9000 Americans killed or murdered per year, and since 9/11, the figure of folks murdered by illegals in U.S is 43,000

  9. Right Jokester says:

    This story (one of many by the way) is one of the main reasons I despise Bush so much. This President does nothing to alleviate the situation.

  10. Gayle says:

    Last Tuesday I posted why this is being allowed to continue, Angel, and it’s because of the following:

    The groups, working under the North American Free Trade Agreement office in the Department of Commerce, are to implement the Security and Prosperity Partnership, or SPP, signed by President Bush, Mexican President Vicente Fox and then-Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin in Waco, Texas, on March 23, 2005.

    This is killing us and Bush has let us down regarding this most important issue. America is being raped and there is really nothing being done about it! National Security has been Bush’s strong point as far as Iraq and Iran are concerned but he’s letting us down here at home. I hate to say it girlfriend, but I feel betrayed and I know the soldier you posted about does too!

    You left a comment over at MRB saying this would make me see red. When do I not? I live in Texas and see all of the things you mentioned on a daily basis! On going to town most conversations I here are conducted in Spanish, not English! It’s very hard for people who don’t speak Spanish to find work.

    This particular horrible crime you posted about happened in Phoenix. I doubt this man will be punished the way he should be. Phoenix is run by secular progressives and you know what that means! My daughter attends what is probably the only conservative college in Phoenix and says that the people in Phoenix are insane. I’m sure not all of them are secular progressives, but enough of them are to make her feel that way. So it will be a miracle if justice is done in this case!

  11. Debbie says:

    It’s horrible Angel. But we have so many criminals from Mexico and other countries here. I just don’t understand why our government won’t get serious. I’m beginning to wonder if the conspiracy theorists are correct and there is some kind of back door deal going on.

  12. Joe Gringo says:

    I live in east Mesa and work in Phoenix and this was the first I’ve heard of this

    WTF…….I am shocked, well maybe not I guess. Arizona used to be a rockin’ true blue conservative state……fellow AZ bloggers Elmer’s Brother, Flooping Aces and Barry G. can vouch for that, much has gone wrong here in the last decade. I went to check out if this was reported in our states largest paper, The Aizona Republic, it was reported on Monday that “Army soldier stabbed by neighbor – yes, neighbor – http://www.azcentral.com/12news/news/articles/soldierstabbed02122007-CR.html ……….

    This poor guy is in a coma,I work about 10 minutes from that Credit Union, I will stop by and help out, thanks for posting this.

    Arabic school to open in Brooklyn…

    The following is from Degrees of Madness. I can’t improve on what she says: The Department of Education says that it will open a public school next fall dedicated to Arabic language and culture. The Khalil Gibran International Academy is…

  14. Joe Gringo says:

    One more thing, let’s reverse this, let’s say some gringo was living illegally in México and stabbed a Méxican, he’d never make it out, and if the guy died, well, México doesn’t have capital punishment but I guarantee you the Federali’s would take the law into their own hands

  15. Angel says:

    Thanks y’all for the compassion and added info! :)

    France Surrenders, Again…

  17. Brooke says:

    This is just utterly sickening! To survive and be decorated in Iraq, and then stabbed due to the gov’t's neglect on our borders!

    I’ve said it before: Every time an American is assualted by an illegal, he/she sould sue the Federal government for FAILING to protect them against a foreign invader!

    Maybe I’ll do a post about that later today or tomorrow…

  18. wordsmith says:

    I’m fine with the death penalty for him. Better than having him languish along with all the other drains on our federal prisons (many of them illegals) by being sentenced to serve prison time.

  19. Maggie M. Thornton says:

    Angel: Do you have any idea what this means:

    “Police said Martinez-Lozano is an illegal immigrant and the Immigration and Naturalization Service has placed a hold on him”.

    That’s just great – were they planning to “naturalize him”.

    I say keep him here and never let him set foot on Mexican soil again. It’s good use of our tax money to see to it that he has lots of concrete under his feet and his prison recess buddies are skin-heads.

    I am so disgusted with this Administration’s stand on immigration.
