Instead of wasting $ on the drone, just shoot them! Bullets are cheaper!

I think this should be expedited along the whole border, especially the more porous sections. Sooner the better.

This drone program probably makes Cuellar and all the other politicians happy. They are smart enough to recognize a boondoggle when they see it--one that can never replace manned observer planes in constant contact with tracking ground units.

Cuellar and all the other politicians are for the status quo: the revolving door and the cat and mouse game with only token enforcement of laws against aliens. When he and other politicians, including Rick Perry, start talking seriously about jails, fines, and DEPORTATION, for illegal aliens, and jail and fines for their employers, we might start making some progress. There are already laws sufficient to stop illegal immigration [8 USC 1325] and their exploitation [8 USC 1324]. Just read them and enforce them.

Great--they need to fly over all the fields where the illegals are working, all the restaurants, hotels, processing plants, medical facilities hiring illegals to do semi-skilled and unskilled hourly jobs--you know: the kind that are hiring the illegals.

Fooling around the border regions is absurd. Why Americans do not get it is a mystery. Only by going to the sources of the demand, and actually punishing multi-millionaire white Republican owners and senior management of the actual job markets that hire and thus attract these people will stop this demand.

Even then it will be temporary, until women stop having many, many more Catholic Christian babies than the job markets need in Latin America, and Latin America then has a chance to stabilize, and develop valid, long-range democratic middle income working and stable and voting and participating families.

I'm 66, and I'll never see it! The world's people infestation is just too weak to do the right thing. The Great Spirit is coming, to clean house. Hold on to your heels, you good ol' perfect A-holes!

I agree that the Catholic church bears a great deal of responsibility for the illegal immigration into this country because of its position on family planning, particularly devastating in poor countries.
