We need a fence America!!! A huge fence to make illegal immigration a little dificult. Obviously wire does not work and we need help down here at the border! I have 10 acres south of Akela, I use to be able to ride freely through my land. A year ago it all change, when I was approached by 4 illegal immigrants wanting a ride towards I-10, I refused and before I knew it I was on the ground hurting in pain! Since then I try and avoid the land that is far from my home. To think that just 2-3 years ago I would still employ these people that would come and ask for work. It's been a while since anyone has asked for work, they just want to get North.

They say they don't want amnesty, however they offer no solutions. They want a temporary worker plan, but offer no plans. I agree no amnesty. Temporary worker visa only good for the worker,NO FAMILY,allowing the worker to be in the US for no more than 6 months at a time with a 6 month 'cool off' time in Mexico. Worker must check out at a port when they leave. Visa can bee good for 3 years. If an alien is found working illegally they should be DEPORTED and banned from the program for 5 years on the first offense. Visas allowed for only certain jobs. Any criminal offenses committed alien should be banned from program.

We dont need no fence, we need new laws and law enforcment with the balls and autority to enforce them. we need our troops out of the sand box standing guard on out border to reenfoce our new laws and to set a few good example for future migrant. Its a simple concept to the border problem. we just need to crooked polotitions replace with one that will do the job we need them to do. and the authority to do whatever need be done to secure our national security.
