Will the Border Ever Be Secure Enough for Immigration Hawks?

Full story: The Atlantic

El Paso is the safest city in the U.S., the Border Patrol is bigger than ever, and illegal crossings have reached a 40-year low -- among other surprising facts.

As long as local, IE el paso county residents encounter cross border thugs on their property,

NO, it is NOT secure.

Ans when theological clowns come to the front line ,
Admit there is a problem,
And fix it....

Then we can all sleep better at night.

Check for yourselves!

Ans let it be known,
The el paso sheriff office does respond,
To a 911 call,
But it takes 28 minutes.....

BUT the el paso DA ,
Does NOT always procesute these thugs,
Even if they thieve millions of dollars of pecans!

The El Paso County Attorneys and the District Attorney's office want convictions they can lay their teeth into so they can show they are macho.
They refuse to touch these cases because it is only property crimes of very little value to anyone other than the victim.

The federal government will not work at reducing the number of illegal immigrants in this country because they will not present attorneys to be selected for Immigration judges who are liberal in nature. The republicans have failed to appoint any immigration judges for the last 2 years. I believe the figure of about 100 immigration judge openings are not filled. This backlog is causing an exponential number of cases not heard. Of course there are also not enough federal judges in this judicial area to handle all the criminal cases either. God and the republicans in congress are not on our side cause we are a democratic county.

Barabarism is on the rise, not just in Chicago but elsewhere too. The borders have not seen this lately unless you want to count that shepherd boy who was gunned down awhile back. We need to restore a vigilante style approach to make sure that we protect us and ours. Cattle thievery, for example, can be just as costly and illegal as some of the more high profile crimes.

That's the problem with this whole thing. The media will be telling us whether the border is secure in the end. The corporate media is desparate for amnesty. They will spin everything to favor amnesty. The media in America has become an enemy of Democracy. They are the problem.

The work HAWKS.

Does it mean it's inappropriate
to ask the CRIMINAL ILLEGAL to RESPECT AMERICAN LAW?

Why does the idiot author want to taint respect for lawful compliance with LAW?

Lets deport all the criminal illegals....

And their sympathizers....
And the answer is

If we put troops on the border and let them do anything necessary to keep the criminals out , including shooting them, in time the criminals will get the message. That is the only thing they understand.
Right on

Looking at Chicago, ya ought to fire your elected officials for engineering that mess.

How can you NOT prosecute the gun felonies?
UNLESS ya want the problem to grow, which is exactly what they're doing!

Ya ought to have a bounty on drug thugs!

Chicago is totally Corrupt from the top down. They bred the gangs, and now they have lost control of them. Soon they will head for the suburbs where they will be dealt with.

How can you trust any group of so called leaders when they allowed 20 million illegal aliens to break into our country? These same idiots now want to give these lawbreakers amnesty. It's hard to imagine a group with any less credibility, unless you're talking about the corporate media. When your next door neighbor, who is a highschool dropout, gets a job that can support himself, that will be a clue that the illegal alien problem is improving.

I agree. Send all illegal white people back to Scandinavia asap before they reproduce further!

You're right. All illegal aliens, from every country, have to go. There are plenty of jobs doing avalanche control in Scandanavia so there's no reason for them to stay here.

No, most Mexican Citizens want open borders for their friends and family. Obama invites them over for all American citizens benefits.

I love your comments, especially the part about biting. I've long thought that the law in this town is more about taking a bite out of something that exacting true justice. Justice is important, a right we all have, but it's under assault from the tea party types and those who would enslave us all over again. Women have fought for equal access for years and now they want to take away my right to birth control and reproductive services, like killing my unborn baby if I choose to do so. All of you need to keep your hands off my ovaries.

You gotta love the Democrats. In N C where they hold neither the Statehouse, nor the Legislature, and will never get elected, they have found the only solution Democrats know about, backmail. They are hiring Private investigators to look into the lives of the REpublicans to see if they can blackmail them into doing what they want done. Republicans should do the same to them.!!

The count is 13.8 million illegal immigrants. Don't exaggerate. It destroys your argument.
