A high-tech "virtual fence" on part of the U.S. border with Mexico is finally ready for service and the technology can fight illegal crossings all along the frontier, the Homeland Security chief said on Friday.

I can remember when it was white folks that built houses. It wasn't that long ago, but who wants to compete with slave labor?

Wrong! They should only contract with an honest law abiding contractor. Anyone who would hire illegals would also steal from the home owner. Dishonesty is never justifiable. It is merely a means to an end. It is a way of life, it is a major character flaw.

okbuilder in topix only hires legal workers and does quite nicely. Yep, it is all about honesty and character.

Call ICE--they no longer accept E-Mail or text-message tips, due to spam.
The number is 1-866-347-2423!
Duh huh is right, if the good moves out, the bad will invade the vacated area and corrupt it the rest of the way!
Enforce the Law is also right, what the hell did we do for the century or so BEFORE we bordered with Mexico? Buildings got built, and without even electricity or gas-powered tools and/or machines to help, let alone invading scum doing it "for" us!
It's not cheap, the cost is just defrayed to ALL the taxpayers, not just the "owners" of the invaders! WE pay for their "free" health-care, WE pay for their housing, and the diseases they spread, as well as the litter they leave--everywhere--WE pay for the schools they overcrowd, and in some cases, DEMAND an already underfunded system split in half--one half going to teach in the invaders' own language, just in case we haven't made enough concessions! And WE pay for the extra cops to (try to) stop their drunken and/or drug-fueled violence across the nation...and they also lead the nation in drunk driving!
As now TWO posters have compared them to slaves, they may well be, BUT in this "new slavery", the owner doesn't have to pay for anything! In the 1800s version, the owner not only had to pay for the slave(s), but was responsible for their feeding, clothing, health-care, even any damages they caused! Any attempt to go back to that would cause the NAACP to tie us up in court for two MORE centuries, but this "new" slavery hurts us all physically, financially, and socially, instead of just the "slaves" and their owners...
And the new "slaves" came here VOLUNTARILY against America's will, not sold by their compatriots, which invalidates the whole comparison! They aren't slaves, they're invaders, breeders, conquerors...Something between cancer, plague-rats, and locusts, with the worst parts of each, yet demanding to be treated with the RIGHTS of humans, without taking on the RESPONSIBILITIES of humans!
You can either choose to accept that, or choose to fight it, and embolden and help those who also fight the invading evil!

... and they were built better then. Now, it seems like a majority of housing developments have problems & lawsuits caused by lousy labor during the construction process.

I believe as a condition of "amnesty", illegals should be neutered, to prove they don't want to inflict FURTHER resource-drains on America, by having the US provide natal care, education, medication, and ultimately incarceration for their broods.
And here's the link to the report about Hispanics and drunk-driving.

Why should any Government JOB require the Employees speak Spanish?

There is NO REASONS unless they are Employed/Paid as Interrupters SAME as Interrupters for other Languages.

This BS that the Border Patrol HAS TO SPEAK SPEAK SPANISH is PLAIN BS.

The only SPANISH WORDS they need to know is STOP, PUT YOUR HANDS UP and LAY DOWN WITH HAND IN VIEW, DO NOT MOVE.

The objective should be STOP THEM from crossing the BORDER not PLAY COP with them AFTER THEY DO.

Fire the Border Patrol Chief and put NONE SPEAKING SPANISH Border Guards on the Mexican Border and the Active Duty Military with orders no one crosses except at authorized crossing points.

IT is PLAIN silly to let them cross the Border then PLAY COP, BABY THEM, waste money on courts, medical care and put up with crap from Mexican Government Official about their treatment.

Stop them from crossing the Border using WHATEVER IT TAKES and stop the BS that USA Government Employees like Border Patrol be required to speak Spanish---this it the USA NOT MEXICO.

Not every Illegal Alien Crossing the Border Speak Spanish---SO WHY BABY THE ONES THAT DOES!!!!

Build a Double Fence the entire Length of the Mexican Border and not some BS of Cameras etc to take pictures of Illegal Aliens as they go their merry way crossing the Border, maybe catch a few to play cop with--SPEAKING THEIR SPANISH-- prior to their release in the USA or Deported so they can come RIGHT BACK.

This is a virtual farce, the infrastructure for such a thing would involved a massive grid of lasers not there, with cameras not there, with infrared sensors not there, with power stations for the grid not there, and border agents in jail not there, so whos going after these illegals when they virtually walk throught the virtual fence? Smells like virtual crap to me.........ready to use my ass.....I'm going in for a closer look with my own eyes.

Good point, I never thought of that.

Maybe the idea of having teens using their computers to shoot illegals with remote control machine guns set up along the border is the way to go afterall.

we just need to admit the only thing that is going to work is a large fence and deadly force. if you make the fines bigger the government will just let the business cry and lower the fines just like the epa does. hey it's real simple build the wall make 10 to 12 entry points, if you don't come thru these entry points you get shot. and then bill the mexican government for the ammo. amd burial and if they don't pay put a lien on there country and then annex it and call it lower south L.A.
