This article is a good read. It takes into account many different views of people who live in the border states.
I particularly liked Sheriff Tony Estrada's (from Nog.ales,Ariz.)viewpoint, where is stated that the border can not be completely sealed, but contained and that the problem is not only the car.tels but the American demand for dr.ugs. Which I believe to be true.
There is a lot of interesting points in this article.
Also,as Marco R.ubio stated, " We need a responsible/permanent solutions", "We must follow through on the broken promises of the past to secure the border".,,, and I believe that also.
Illegal Immigration is a huge problem and if we do not get a firm hold/control of the situation we will continue to see the same and the worst is yet to come.
Rubio comes from a state that does not have an illegal alien problem because "refugee status" accorded to Cubans makes each one legal the moment he sets foot on our shores. We've heard too many ignoramuses, now it's time for the truth.

The only solution to illegal immigration is deportation. That's what the law says, and that's the way it is. Anything less than deportation is amnesty, and that just adds fuel to the fire.

there is no reason not to secure the borders tight as can be,unless those in office do not want to stop the flow. looks like they would just straight up say so instead of crying it can't be done.

we know it can be sealed if we wanted to be putting an all out effort.

In case you missed the point in Post #45, above, Marco Rubio is a dangerous, ambitious politician with less than normal intelligence.

The Democrats are promoting hims as the next GOP candidate to ensure that the GOP loses against Hillary in 2016.

We need to find a way to have it certified. No more loose lips or empty promises. Don't forget the President came to El Paso and pledged his support for this.

<quoted text> I think a secure border should look like the Great Wall of China it worked for them a few years back and it worked pretty well in keeping the rif raf out of their country. Thats is why their #1 in the world in economics and the USA owes them after Obama is done 949 trillion dollars
When the Mongols decided to invade China, they didn't attack the Great Wall, they merely bribed the guards to let them thru. It worked.

The largest number of those arrested for drug smuggling into the US are Americans, most with BP accomplices.

I fought in that war and we did one hell of a number on those godless Koreans. We need some old fashioned discipline and morals once again in this country like we had back then.

The myth of a secure border.
"What do you mean I'm out of money?" says the bumper sticker. "I still have checks left!" In the immigration debate, some folks use the same logic to raise the issue of border security. "What do you mean the border is secure?" they seem to say. "We still have illegal immigrants in the United States." For some Americans, like Marco Rubio, a complicated issue really is that simple. They'll never be convinced that the U.S.-Mexico border is totally secure as long as the phenomenon of illegal immigration continues, and they'll use their contention that the border isn't secure as a convenient excuse to oppose comprehensive immigration reform that includes earned legal status for the undocumented. That's not fair. It's kind of like liberal Democrats saying they'll support tax cuts -- as soon as we end poverty in the United States. It's a way of getting out of doing something you don't want to do. Opponents of reform should put their cards on the table and list the real reasons they object to the idea of allowing illegal immigrants to remain in the United States. My guess is that "because the border isn't secure" wouldn't make the top 10.

A secure border would have armed military personnel every 50 feet with permission to shot anyone crossing the border at anything but an authorized Entry where their papers could be carefully checked. We have work visas they could use, but we can no longer throw open the borders for people who hate us, and hate this country.
