I guess we need to have an illegal alien “Welcome Wagon” at the border. Heaven forbid they should get their widdle feelings hurt.

An amusing study conducted by a highly-regarded public university has determined that the U.S. Border Patrol is committing “emotional violence” against illegal immigrants.

Mexicans trying to cross into the U.S. illegally are regularly victims of racial name-calling and cursing, the academic researcher claims. About 30% of them are also victims of physical abuse from federal agents, Slack and his staff have found. All of this constitutes a new category seldom reported by the media; “emotional violence.”

If you enter our country illegally expect to be called what you are. If a stranger entered by house without my permission not only would I be cussing at them but they'd be looking down the barrel of a gun.

Maybe they should just give them a map showing them how to get to California. That's where they will be going now.

My house they would not have time to look as their eyeballs would be flying out the back of their head.

Hmm.. and to think they could avoid all that "emotional violence" if they didn't attempt to cross the border illegally.

But it's the BIG BAD BORDER CONTROL that is wrong.

Typical.

We could put up some nice desert kiosks offering wet wipes and freshly brewed Starbucks....

"emotional violence" what's a joke... arent these "academic" people have anything else to do? I think we all should do some fund raising, rent a buss, go down the border and put a sign "FREE" ride to the US.

It's nothing compared to the treatment they get from Mexican border guards when the US buses them back to Mexico. Anything of value gets confiscated by the guards.

I guess it sucks to be a criminal. I might feel a little bad for them were it not for the fact that so many US citizens fall prey to ID theft to illegals.
I might feel bad for them were it not for how many US citizens are victims of Drunk illegals driving.
How many US citizens are victims of sexual predators from South of the border.
How about we as a nation as a whole?
Yep sucks to be criminal when you get caught.

"Researchers have excluded relevant information detailing how Border Patrol agents are increasingly attacked by heavily armed Mexican drug cartels and human smugglers. Some stretches of the border are so dangerous that agents are ordered to avoid them because patrolling them could result in an “international incident” or cross border shooting."

Parts of Mexican Border

Funny how in the last two years with the increase of violence
along and north of the border, Why are Americans not demanding our borders to be secure
