America's massive quest for illegal drugs has turned Central America into nothing but a country of DRUG LORDS & VIOLENT GANGS - who put little value on human life - even children's lives...

No, the USA doesn't bear the full responsibility for all the gang violence going on in Central America - but we do bear a huge part of the the problem involved in the illegal drug trade which is rampant in those countries...

Central America is on the root between those who PRODUCE DRUGS & those who CONSUME massive amounts of DRUGS. And the other part of that root is clearly the United States.

For, it is no secret - illegal drug use in the United States is at epidemic proportions!!!

And some our wealthiest - most upstanding citizens are the ones consuming these illegal drugs. Yes, it's a sad state of affairs that the USA is the largest consumer of illegal drugs in the world... Illegal drugs is a huge blemish on the face of this country...

The children who are flooding into the USA borders have come from the most dangerous areas of the country, where drug lords & violent gangs are at the very root of the greatest levels of violence.

Central American countries have become nothing but transit corridors or warehouses for drugs reaching the United States.

The children from these violent South American countries - who are flodding into our country - are just the innocent victims of this drug trade induced violence which is killing & raping these INNOCENT CHILDREN.

Therefore, it is only right & just that the United States MUST extend a helping hand in helping these poor children.

If the United States had REALLY CRACKED DOWN ON ILLEGAL DRUGS ENTERING THIS COUNTRY - this problem of child refugees flooding into our country WOULD NOT BE HAPPENING...

YES, THE UNITED STATES BEARS A BIG RESPONSIBILITY FOR WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO THESE INNOCENT CHILDREN...

The price of deploying an army of local, state and federal cops, prosecutors and guards to arrest, try and imprison the perpetrators of Dru Running into This Country... Using data from 2000, Harvard economist Jeffrey Miron estimated it as $7.7 billion4 per year while a 2007 study, by public policy expert Jon Gettman, figured it closer to $10.7 billion 5 per year.

Most of that money is eaten up by law enforcement according to Miron, with $2.94 billion going to prosecution costs in 2000, and less than half a billion toward incarceration....

It seems Throwing Money at it is not the answer!! CLOSING the Border Like Israel does WILL put A HUGE dent in The Drug Problem!! The Rich fly it in on there personnel planes...The Drug Cartels run up to 90% of The Drugs running thru Mexico! AGAIN CLOSE the border Put up A Huge Wall that's over 12 feet in the ground and 15 feet high with Razor wire atop of it and the Drugs and Illegal alien problem will be drastically cut!! lest than 20% will be coming across the southern border!! one Door closed!!!!EASY!!
But it seems some in congress and senate DON'T want it closed!! They feed off of the Federal revenues Generated by an open border policy, The Police The Border guards and The Prison and Court systems don't want the border closed!! There making Money by incarcerating The Drug runners...Its All about The Money!!!!

Jerry,
These illegal drugs entering our country are costing way more that can ever be made by incarcerating the drug runners! I do believe that's one of the most ignorant statments you've ever made on this forum.

Not only is illegal drugs costing billions in trying to stop the drugs from coming into our country - it is also having devastating effects on the lives & health of the people who comsume these drugs.

The USA will be paying medical bills for these drug abusers for generations. That's not even considering the break-up of families by illegal drugs - heck, we're even having babies who are born addicted to drugs who will suffer life-long health problems because of illegal drugs.

These illegal drugs need to be STOPPED IMMEDIATELY. Now, it doesen't really matter to me whether they build 50ft high razor wall fence around the whole southern border - or engage on an all out war ( foot-soldiers, guns, bombs, air attacks, drones etc).

We also need to make it IMPOSSIBLE for any illegal drugs to be transported by plane, ship, boat, submarine - or any other means of transportation into this country...

The USA needs to get serious about stopping these drugs from entering our country - even if it means spending 20 billion dollars!

Because, the cost is just to high if we DON'T stop illegal drugs from entering our country...

Tiger High,
This has got to be the dumbest thing you've ever posted on this forum!

Don't worry, Tiger - our country is well on it's way to legalizing POT all over the country. That will be bad enough - but, can you just imagine what a night-mare it would be to legalize ALL ILLEGAL DRUGS???

We've got enough drug-heads in this country already!

Yes, we've got millions of people who've destroyed their bodies & their lives & their family's lives on - meth, cocain, heroine & all the other drugs people consume orally, inhale, shove up their noses, or inject by into needle their bodies...

If they legalized all drugs - this country would soon be worse than all those South American countries - or middle-east countries...
