That seems to be Janet Napolitano's position as dictated by this administration.

You can never prevent all rapes, all murders, nor all child abuse - so do we just stop trying?

What's funny is that there are those who think it can actually be done.
With that logic I can't totally keep out a burglar either, so I may just as well take the doors off and open the windows to my home.

Let's look at history. The feds are letting us build a wall. They are NOT letting us go after employers or visa overstays so it looks like we keep building.

There is a show on the Discovery channel called Locked up Abroad, we need to enact those tactics and then a decrease will be seen. We (US) are just to nice about it all.

it is true that we can never seal the border completely, no one is saying that. but we can reduce the flow of illegal immigrants from a flood to a trickle, which can then be properly managed by the border patrol and other law enforcement agencys.

We are currently allowing a small Town DAILY to come here illegally. That's crazy by anyone's standards.

Well I don't see the voters supoorting another manesty deal like teh last tiem when they did secure the border. if they wouldn't then sattes will react as thigs get worse on the border. The democrats can just suck egg if they thing that they are getting another amnesty.Voters are ready justlike teh last tieme they tried and failed.

The police should have the authority to request anyone to show proof of their legal status. A Chinese wall is not the solution.

The Arizona law should be expanded to the other 49 states and Puerto Rico.
