It is about time!
Regardless of how you look at it, the incursions of Drug Runners and the traffic of Illegals is an Assualt on this country.
If we can spend money and lose lives for other countries, then we should have done this a long time ago.
I think we should we should view the protection of the USA as our FIRST PRIORITY!

No, no, no, no, NO. You just don't get it.
Corporations need cheap labor. Government employees skim from international drug deals. Politicians need to engage in giant, endless wars so their armament industry pals can loot the Treasury and then pay out secret kickbacks into their Swiss accounts.
Border security and calling the National Guard home to help would unravel all of that.
No profit in it for the politicians and their lackeys.
Won't happen.

Since when have we had a problem detecting the illegal entry of aliens into the U.S., or in detecting their presence?

Nobody who is making a lot of the hullabaloo about the problem has suggested DEPORTATION. Not globalists like Bilderberger Rick Perry. Not Rush Limbaugh. Not Sean Hannity. All of the above, and most rich TV and radio hosts who parade as "conservatives," have never suggested that we deport illegal aliens. The antithesis of that theory is that they are for amnesty for illegal aliens, but they want to blame it on the liberals.

Listen closely to what the loud mouths say--and even closer to what they do not say. Pseudo conservatists abound, but very few real ones exist.

It's time to stop the expensive, worthless boondoggles and gadgets and close the revolving door with punishment. We must do that with fines and jail sentences for the illegal aliens and their employers, and by deporting illegal aliens--and that would preclude their later re-entry as legal aliens.

This is another huge waste of money. Armed soldiers with orders to shoot anything on two legs that doesn't come through a legal check point to cross the border should be the only thing observing the border. Anyone on the up-and-up can cross at a legal checkpoint.

If these planes get here they will very rarely be in the air. They will be broken and just used for propaganda photographs. Another great lie to Texans.

Predator and Reaper Drones are notorious for failing- crashing. If one crashes on my Farm or Ranch, I going to sue someone for damages- Maybe the manufacturer or CBP?
