Absolutely correct. Border security is a HUGE PRIORITY.It is a tragedy that Harry Reid killed the Immigration Bill by refusing to make Border Security a priority.
Just today, CNN poll says 62% of Americans say "NO pathway to citizenship" without solid Border enhancements FIRST. ONLY 26% say that we can put illegals on a path to citizenship without Border Security being the First consideration.
If <and that's a big IF>, if we start handing out 'pathway to citizenship' for people who have entered illegally, it will only serve as ENCOURAGEMENT FOR MORE to jump the border.
At that rate, we may as well start giving them a path and sign them up while they are still IN MEXICO.(at least then we'd KNOW in advance who they are, instead of not knowing a thing about those hiding INSIDE our border).
