Thousands of muslims, masquerading as Mexicans, are crossing the southern borders every week.
ANYONE found climbing the fence should be shot, regardless of age or gender.
God will sort out the mess.

This is SOCIALLY CORRECT.

We had the borders closed for over a hundred years. Then Teddy Kennedy passed legislation making it easy to enter the U S illegally, and the scum of the earth breaks every immigration law they can find to come here and use forged documents to apply for free education, hospitalization, they fill our prisons, and our criminal politicians stand by and encourage them for their own political gain. Then of course they use that forged Voter Registration card to vote the same crooked politicians in for another term. Unless every American not registered to vote, registers, before the next election we will all be ruled by criminals.

Only if the drones are armed would they do any good. The drone operator hundreds of miles away would have to contact the nearest border agent and the wets would be far from where the drone saw them by the time an agent could get into the area. So about the only use the drone is, is to just count heads. If they can't back up the drone intel with manpower like the Army closely patrolling the border, then they are just expensive cameras.

ummm...the drone could follow them....

sheesh!

unfortunately, the Border patrol cannot afford to run drones at any length. nor would it be a wise use of our tax dollars.

solve the problem, quit trying to treat one of the symptoms...

Don't worry. As long as Obama is in charge their will be nothing but conversation about Border Security. More broken promises.

The Bill, as amended, gives LEGAL status, and instant billions in tax slave funded benefits, to the countless millions FIRST.

SECOND..... is Border Security and that only has to be a PLAN for it not actually DOING IT. Just a PLAN.

Good, I do hope that it is armed with night vision and those cute little missile's.
So they can shoot illegal criminals before they climb our fence or dig a cockroach tunnel.

Kennedy-schmennedy, they were crossing the border illegally long
before Kennedy was even born. California fruit growers have
exploited their dirt-cheap labor for generations.
Same in Arizo0na and Texas.
Ronald Reagan granted millions of them amnesty.

Border security is tighter now that it was 10 years ago and
there are twice as many people patrolling the borders as
there were 10 years ago.

Yes, there were illegal aliens that came across before Kennedy. They came a few at a time and there were never millions of them. After Kennedy they came by the thousands at a time until they are like cockroaches. You know damn well if they broke the immigration laws to get here they are not going to honor the new laws, as in learning English, paying fines, They kill hundreds of innocent people a year drinking, and driving. They bring in disease. They don't want to be Americans. They just want the freebies the Democrats promised.

Shoore, it's just Democrats' fault. To prove your point, tell us how the situation was changed by Republicans when they had the opportunity to do so. And spare us from bawling about the Democrats preventing them from doing anything. In fact, the Republicans did nothing about it because cheap labor benefits Big Ag and other industries.

I disagree...i think the communication between the dronemaster and the closest agents could be instrumental...the drone is also capable of additional passes.....

the border was opened and close as needed up until President Eisenhower. People were allowed in but it was controlled. Then the whale known as Teddy the murdering woman abuser got his part of the great society passed after LBJ the zionist murdering war monger and pure hater passed his legislation. Since then, we don't close our borders when needed and our economy needs to reload. Reagan was fooled by the progressives and was getting tired as the neo cons like Bush the first and Ollie and the rest backed stabbed him as they took over completely his last few years. What we have not learned from 1986 until now? Are you waiting for your belly to go empty? Do you think that it can't happen here! We are just the the near end nation when the end game occurs now. You see freedom isn't free. Freedom is making the tough decisions when needed. And all we have done is screw over those who had the audacity to save and move one step ahead of others who spent theirs because they were irresponsible.

We can solve this problem easily with a certified "Guest Worker" program like we had in the 40s and 50s. "Guest Worker" programs feel the need for foreigners to make a better living and America's need for workers in certain industries.

It is a Win/Win for everyone concerned.

Any other plan is just a ploy for Democrats lust for POWER to become Dictators leaving half the American people with ZERO representation in our own Government.

Before you support this junk you better research how Venezuela is doing under the yoke of a mob backed Leftwing Dictatorship? It that is how you want your families to live then support Obama.

We have sent billion$ and billion$ to Israel so that they can protect themselves from their bordering entities.

Israel IS building a wall!
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Israeli_West_Ban...

http://www.aljazeera.com/news/middleeast/2010...

Israel is DEporting illegals and THEIR CHILDREN WHO SPEAK HEBREW, but here in the USA, the President wants to give them FREE education, an ability to get ahead of others already WAITING in an educational line!

http://articles.latimes.com/2010/aug/02/world...

Senator Chuck Schumer won't protect OUR US borders, but will support Israel's border protection. Schumer won't DEport illegals in the USA but endorses and keeps his mouth shut on Israel's DEportations!

Time to syphon-off the US dollars going to 'foreign aid' and use that money to help build the wall, fences along the USA's borders.

We need to fully control the border.

All we have is the White House SAYING our borders are protected but when those who POLICE the border seek to speak, they are shutdown!

Shame on this president for NOT securing OUR borders and NOT paying attention to OUR neighbors in S America and the Caribbean.

These countries are at our doorstep and are lowdown on the totem pole. The Middle East is the priority and then the Asian Seas.

Meanwhile China is working to build a new "Panama Canal" through Nicagura and is establishing itself in the Caribbean. Have you seen the 'gifts' China has given to St Kitt?

China is taking a slow foothold in the our neighborhood, while we're trying to protect faraway neighborhoods that the EU should be worried about.
