Two Cents: Secure our borders now!

I'm sure I don't have to tell you that we've got a problem with our borders, and it isn't going away anytime soon it's only going to get worse unless we do something about it. Full Story

Radio Shack sells fine parts for your information, there just expensive. There is no need to throw money at the problem with more this and better that. The solution is simple; severe consequences for illegal crossing and very stiff, enforced penalties for those hiring the illegal labor. Lastly, empower local land owners to assist.

Agree for the most part. This guy isn't talking about securing the border. He's talking about military-enforced isolation. And let's be clear about the issue; it's not an all encompassing issue, it's 2. First on the list is the drug cartels. That is by far the biggest danger. 2nd is the people crossing the border looking for work or a better way of life. I personally have little issue with that. They've been doing it for about 80 years, doing work that most of us white folk don't want or can't do anymore. And there is evidence that Mexican migration is actually down to a trickle. The reasons are many, but the details were posted in an article by the New York Times. I leave people to their own political interpretation of that, but it's a little hard to deny.

If you're talking about allowing local land owners to enforce immigration law, that's a big hell no from me. Local land owners are already empowered to assist, it's called contacting local authorities. They are truly our first line of defense.

Everybody from Wal mart to Pizza Hut is hiring illegal aliens. And he's right, our politicians are traitors. Udall, Bingaman, Lujan, Obama all. What we need is a wall. A wall, not sensors. And full deportation.

With the return of troops from the middle east, make effective use of their talents. They are a fixed cost, i.e. no extra cost to the taxpayer.

Put a wall of troops along the border with live rounds, and clear rules of engagement. They would not be enforcing laws, but providing for our defense.
Of course LULAC and ACLU will have seizures, but thats too bad. Those illegals that survive can be put to use rebuilding the national infrastructure as part of their sentinces, much like the POWs in WW II, without compensation.

the US can spend all it's Homeland Security money on keeping the illegals locked up and then we will not be able to go all over the world starting wars. Everybody wins the Mexicans get free room and board and we don't have enough money to travel the world killing people because we don't like the way they think. But Halliburton would loose so I guess it isn't such a good idea.

I'm thinking the fence is fine just add 50kva at 1 amp would do the job just fine.

Severe punishment for crossing an invisible line in the sand. Get real! A real border wall with good enforcement & patrol will suffice

Just enough of a jolt to keep them off the fence is fine. Non-lethal form of deterrence is what we need.

Now you're talking!

It is hardly an invisible line in the sand. I think you need to come and visit, the Mexicans know exactly where that line is. You are suggesting reducing the current I suggested to what,.025 amp like a tazer? It would not do the job necessary, 1 amp will keep the bodies on the Mexico side of the fence.

I used to have a problem with loose dogs crapping in my yard. Well a few years ago I put a brick wall around my home. Guess what? No more dogs crap in my yard. You get the picture!

As for a electro-fence, I'm all for it but I don't want to smell fried chimichangas either. Heck I would not mind having the voltage to lets say what the police use to stop a bad guy. Most of them don't die and I'm cool with that.

I don't blame Americans for being so draconian toward illegals, the stigma they have is not a good one but they're still humans.

Oh yesssss, lets build a wall 50 ft tall and this will stop the cartels. Do people really think that if we just do this we will have no more drug proglem. Think again, There will be plenty in the US to take their place as where there is this kind of money to be made someone will do it. Study the history of prohibition. Please, please dont'say"They are poisoning our children??? That is always a good argument for politicinas to use, isn't it?

As long as drugs are illegal everyone will make money off of them.Cartels,illegal cops,distributors and pushers make the money first.Then after they get busted cops ,district attorneys,judges,criminal attorneys,IRS,DEA,ATF,and drug rehab programs or penitentiaries and county jails.I forgot probation and parole programs also.I wonder why we will never legalize,regulate,and tax drugs?It can't possibly be that simple,it has to be more complicated than that.And,so it is.
