It has been abundendently clear as to the sympathy of the obammma administration.
Attempting to pander the illegal vote at any cost, events have exposed the demonic democrats for what they are,
opportunists and desperate are the nice things that come to mind.
The healing will take place in a few more years.
NEAR FT. HANCOCK, TX - Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott is calling on congress to secure the border now in the wake of a shooting in Hudspeth County.
Greg Abbott is asking for a full investigation, hearings and action.
Yesterday, gunmen in Mexico fired across the border in what law enforcers think was an attempt by drug smugglers to scare away road workers.
Abbott's action follows four incidents in which bullets in Mexico put at risk the safety and security of Texans.

In the meantime, Texas citizens will defend themselves, their neighbors and their State.

Well I live in the safest city in the nation, right across the border from the most dangerous city in the world. I don't need to "defend myself" from anything as long as I don't cross the border. I guess you suggest we keep wasting billions of dollars on a worthless republican project, then blame the "demonic" democrats for continuing the economical mess the republicans have put this country in.

Like i said in another thread, that's too bad. If it were up to me i would have integrated the drone program with multiple virtual fences along the entire stretch (in between the physical fences) so the drones could verify positives and false positives in one swoop. You can use my tax dollars for a real system.

It seems funny that the further people live from the border the more they think they know about life on the border...

What a miracle, they are going to NOT SPEND our tax dollars on the Black Sink Hole Project.
It was a FAILURE TO LAUNCH from the start, but they still have the money,......maybe they will invest more money in Mexican Government Flying lessons for Israeli drones.
Both ways its a waste.

Let's see,53 miles at $1 billion,20000 + miles would cost right about +$38 billion dollars,are we all ready to find,( if we can ) a second job, or pay a whole lot more taxes to pay for the damn thing ? too much to pay for a handful of schizophrenics,I would say it would be cheaper for texans to find employers who hire "illegal" people and punish them according to the law,and find a way to bring in people who would like to do jobs we would never or would not like to do ( scrub toilets,pick our fruits and vegetables etc.)

Omipresence? Where you there, or is this another unexplained miracle?
Seems the Highway Employees had a good impression, that based on sound and metalic objects striking the ground around them, the un-intended target practice originated from across the Rio Not SO Grande.
Your point is?
And City Hall didnt get a few too?

Landmines every two feet will work. Nobama merely put a small number of National Guard on the border before the Nov election and from what I understand most have been wirthdrawn.

Yep Bush DID it, and you will ascend into Socialist Heaven with the Anointed One. The Ruling Democrats have controlled the Purse Strings from 2006 to Nov 2010. Do a quick clk research and compare spending to the unemployment figures, the Democrats have spent more on nothing then all past presidents.
Republicans are not without quilt. All professional politicians have a pension for using our money, yes our money.
Government produces nothing. Government does not make a product.
But we pay for their (government) sometimes LOONIE PROJECTS.
America in Decline, and its intended, planned and sofar bleeding America.
Additionally Homeland Security is planning on letting Foreign Frequent Fliers from other countries to Skip the TSAs Groping in our airports. The Average American gets groped, it looks bad if Foreign Elite and Tourists with money, get the governments standard security waste of our money.
