What are you thinking up there. Our borders are pourous while illegal Mexicans, South Americans, Central Americans, Arabs and terrorist are coming in (some walking in through Canada) unwelcomed and now you want them to walk off the boats like tourist debarking from a cruise ship. Wake up, quit giving and selling off my country. Terrorist would have a choice of which port to land on. I'm waiting for the technological break through day when I don't have to stop at a gas station.

I can not believe our Government is agreeing to turn our border security over to terrorists. I am a Hispanic Republican AMERICAN in Tom Tancrado's district. He is fighting to protect our southern borders from illegal aliens and all they really are doing are coming into this country for jobs - the dirty jobs American's really don't want. Giving our sea ports to terriorits is inviting them to come into our country (laughing) to blow up anything they want - and collecting a paycheck (tax dollars)!!!! This is insane!
