Fence isn't a cure-all for America's porous border

May 27, 2010 Full story: KSRO-AM Santa Rosa 85

The fence rises from the rock and hardscrabble of the desert floor, a formidable 15-foot-high curtain of corrugated metal that stretches into the mirage of heat and distance.

Aggressively go after the employers of illegal aliens.

Kill the jobs and they will self deport.

The Fence is far more humane that gun turrets. Strong fences make good neighbors.

But, it doesnt' matter. The Obama only cares about the citizens in the mob/gang ruled Blue States.

Doubtful, since the government teat will still produce money and services for them that their own country can't or won't provide.

Here is what would work...50 cal's spaced 1/8 mile apart set to spray at anything that moves. Then those Guardsmen could call in Graves Detail, bag 'em, box 'em and send them back. It won't take too many before they get the message. Probably about 3 days; day 1 to blast a few hundred, day 2 for them to bitch about it and day 3 for them to stay home.

Texas is putting camera all along the border that any citizen can look at on the web. There's a way to report any illegal activity you see on the cameras. Arizona ought to do the same thing, then every citizen becomes a border agent

The fence should be around Washington DC. I'll take one hard working Mexican over a dozon bribe taking PAC owned congressmen.

Rubber bullets? Screw that..308 or 7.62X39 will do the job just fine in my opinion. Give the buzzards something to chew on.

Whether it's the fence, the jobs, the employers, or whatever, everyone points at the reasons it won't be a perfect solution.

Ya gotta start somewhere.

But the REAL problem is lack of will to get 'er done.

Just ELIMINATE their INCOME source (the hiring of ILLEGALS)... and the incentive to even come here will be GONE.

Prosecute companies that give them jobs. Prosecute people who provide them with housing. Prosecute people who provide them with loans.

Anyone who ENABLES an ILLEGAL to remain in the country is just as guilty as those who choose to ignore our immigration laws.

Yup, poor, downtrodden people from south of the border just come here for a better life. Sure

In 2007, a gang of MS-13-tied illegal aliens ambushed a group of young college students in Newark and murdered them execution-style in a schoolyard. A refresher course before we get to the jury decision that came down this morning:

The four students were hanging out behind Mount Vernon School on Aug. 4, 2007, when they were confronted by their attackers with a handgun and a machete. Three of the victims — Terrance Aeriel, 18, Dashon Harvey, 20, and Iofemi Hightower, 20 — were killed when they were lined up against the wall and shot in the back of the head. Terrance’s sister, Natasha Aeriel, survived after being shot in the face and left for dead.

All of the victims were robbed, and Aeriel and the group’s other female, Iofemi Hightower, were sexually molested and cut with machetes and knives, according to a lawsuit recently filed against the city school system and the alleged killers.

Yeah.... never-mind that Texas once belonged to Mexico.

Walls don't work. Laws don't work... there will ALWAYS be illegal immigration.

The national guard and these walls are being built to protect Haliburton down there.....

Once the USA wakes up and realizes that they country was hi-jacked by these goons, and the WORST oil disaster in the history of the planet...** IGNIGHTS **

all hell is going to break loose and many many many many many people are going to be PISSED.

all so that they can profit from YOUR ignorance.

the truth will eventually come out.

And they call us bigoted

MEChA has in the past been associated with anti-Semitic sentiments and groups. A 1998 MEChA youth conference at California Polytechnic State University featured a printed program that introduced the school as "Cal Poly State Jewniversity." The program also referred to New York as "Jew York." When the Anti-Defamation League objected to the program, the university's MEChA chapter issued a formal apology. MEChA has also been linked to La Voz de Aztlán (The Voice of Aztlan), a Chicano webzine that regularly publishes articles attacking Jews, Zionism, and Israel.

Several prominent politicians have emerged from MEChA's ranks. Among them are Antonio Villaraigosa, who served as President of a MEChA chapter at UCLA. Cruz Bustamante, the lieutenant governor of California and a former gubernatorial candidate, was a member of MEChA as a student at California's Fresno State College.

If you were only a Progressive you would cheer the end of America as a decent home for citizen families.
