Obama just gave 1.7 Billion tax payer dollars to Mexico to fight their drug war. I would have liked my taxes to have gone towards finishing the fence along the border to keep Illegals out. Why in the h-ll are we giving a corrupt Mexican government our tax payer dollars to Mexico. Something is definitely wrong with this picture.
The cost of harboring illegal immigrants in the United States is a staggering $113 billion a year an average of $1,117 for every “native-headed” household in America. I say we can afford to ship them all back and spend the rest to wall our borders.

Yeh, right Obama. We only want the "Best & the Brightest" in our country. You better come up with a better theme than this one.
How Obama and Calif state government can justify this article is beyond a sane persons comprehension.
CA Spends $1 Billion a Year to Jail Undocumented Immigrants
According to data from the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation from December 2010, just under 17,000 inmates in the state are on hold for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and in addition, there are just under 4,000 prisoners listed as potential ICE holds.
At a cost of almost $45,000 a year to house an inmate, that’s a cost of nearly $1 billion to house the undocumented immigrants.
The immigrants detained at the time of the data primarily hail from Mexico 15,985 total l (14,057 undocumented), followed by El Salvador, with 1,231 inmates with )1,118 undocumented.
Between Oct. 1, 2010 and April 30, ICE returned to their countries of origin more than 215,900 aliens, including 109,700 aliens with criminal convictions. Of those, 585 were convicted of homicide, 3,177 were convicted sex offenders, and 24,593 were convicted of serious drug offenses.

First, misrepresenting yourself as a law officer is a felony. You do not speak for legitimate law officers nor have you ever been one. You're a druggie trying to get his agenda across by trying to make people believe you speak for law enforcement. Your views at best are full of sh/it. We've never really fought a war on drugs, I've been in real wars, I know the difference. If this were a real war, drug dealers would be gunned down and eliminated by every citizen on the street and they would be thanked for helping out. Instead creeps like you whine and complain and mistreat our justice system to protect you from the real justice you deserve. If we had instituted the correct policy of executing drug dealers upon conviction and tieng social programs to drug testing this so called "war" would have been done 30 years ago and rat's like you would keep a lot lower profile. Now stop insulting honest law enforcement by pretending to speak on their behalf or you will be reported.

Maybe we should be charging Mexico the cost of running our borders, since Mexico really doesn't care about their citizens, then maybe if it it the Government in the pocket book, then maybe they would do something about it in their own country,
