Well, all I can say about this. If the border is secure, how come 20 million are here and more sneaking in everyday. They must be coming in 18 wheelers because the border is less rigid???? Not. If you live in any of the Border towns, or you've watched any border wars programs, smuggler's had perfected there ability to bring in thousands under the radar of border patrol. Intell and military proficiency is the only way to get to the root of the newly smuggled in illegals. They don't jump the fence anymore, they come in truck's. Where has Nappy been/

Toss in some really hungry dogs, big poisonous snakes, and land mines and you have a secure border.

I was in Mexico today and seen a very secure border. What you hear allot of is cheap lazy ranchers who expect the US government to guard their property for free.
Sorry but if they can afford 100's of acres of land then they can afford 100's of security guards also.
Most ranchers would love to guard and protect their properties. If they do, the government and La Ratza bring lawsuits against them, and could possibly lose their property.

My idea of a secure border is one that won't fall apart when you iron it.

For sure Napolitano doesnÂ’t have a clue what a secure border looks like. She has been called our border secure enough for years.

IMO. The Mexican border will not be secure until the drug cartels file a trade dispute with the WTO for restraint of trade because they cannot get their product into the United States.

Thank GOD Obama is the President and not some pea brained republican who's soft on illegal immigration.

[/QUOTE]

You read much?

by John Hill

Stand With Arizona

The Obama Administration today announced a virtual amnesty-by-decree for hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens, whose deportations will be "indefinitely delayed".

******In addition, Obama finally announced a jobs program - but for ILLEGAL ALIENS, not citizens - as those 300,000 illegals will also become eligible for "work permits".******

This action represents an administrative end-run around Congress, which twice rejected the 'DREAM Act' in 2010. As disgraceful as is this usurpation of Congressional authority, this announcement is even worse than is being reported.

I been to Texas and seen the wall and the people who run to FREEDOM. I pray we tear this down and try another solution. Have you ever witness a child hand reaching for her family thru this wall. It breaks my heart to see it. I cried for days after. the sadness it brings to the child and family and humanity. Love your neighbor and your family. The time has come to open the borders and let them come.
Isreal and Gaza have a wall too
Everyone seems happy about that.

Are you that clueless? The Berlin Wall that Reagan talked about was one that kept people in a Communist country. The wall we were supposed to build by law is to keep illegal alien invaders out! not keep them in. Get a clue and re-take some of those history classes you obviously didn't learn anything from.

A secure border:

OUR men.
Wearing OUR boots.
Carrying OUR guns.
Loaded with OUR bullets.
On OUR soil.
Enforcing OUR laws.
With OUR standing orders.

ZERO TOLERANCE.

They're not immigrant's stupid. They didn't come here the way immigrant's come here. What about breaking into your house, stealing your food, and telling you it's okay, I'm immigrating. Get an education Brian. They're mostly stealing citizenship and everyone knows this. They're not allowed to simply break in and take what they please. Americans have always welcomed immigrant's but not Mexican thieves and cheat's. The rule of law must not mean much to you either!!!!!

The border needs to be secure,no doubt about it.The question remains ,,, will it/will they secure our border?
Will they ever? To much money exchanging hands,too many people profiting. Because of that I have my doubts it will ever be completely secured. Maybe if a high official in office were to suffer the same crimes committed against the average Joe.
The traitors in our WH,the illegal advocates don't see nor deal with what we are forced to live with on an every day basis,so they don't care to understand the urgency,the importance of keeping these people in check/in their own country and forcing them to obey our laws by going through the proper channels to come here legally and to keeping us safe from their drugs and violent behavior.
our gov fully understands and know what is going on they just don't care. hezbollah is right across our borders as well showing so much as to them even worrying about terrorists coming in throught the south. i think they make too much off the drugs. what we need to do is get out of nafta for starters,it is not just free trade of products as it was supposed to be or what we was all told from the start.
