Then there is yesterday's most outrageous story about the two headless bodies found handing from an overpass in Acapulco.
FoxNews.com - 4 Officers Killed in Mexico Border City

Two thousand murders in Juarez across from El Paso this past year alone.

Signs posted along our own border warning people of the dangers in our own country.

There is a horrific war going on way too close to home. I think we may need to bring some of our boys home from Afghanistan and start protecting our border and perhaps even start giving some help to our Southern Neighbors, who are in desperate need of it and whose "problems" are already spilling over into our country.
Yes, because he's just a child, Mexico will release him in 3 years and you can bet he'll head straight home to the USA. He was headed here when the Mexican army caught him.

So much for coming here "to improve themselves" as far as this lovely gruesome family.

The open border is creating a huge problem.

If nothing else, we should feel somewhat fortunate that he wasn't up here killing Americans. But, we will be in an unfortunate predicament once Mexico releases him, because we can't deport him, or charge him with a crime or something (until he commits one).

We don't know this family's motives for coming here, but something went extremely afoul in their household growing up, that's for sure.

The border isn't open. It is restricted.

For all intents and purposes the border is open since 12-20 miliion illegal aliens have managed to slip through it undetected.

Oh it's open alright. I agree with you. Restricted if they get caught.

How did they slip through it undetected if we know how many are here?

12-20 million estimate might indicate a lack of restriction at the border or an ability to accurately count the numbers.
a 12 to 20 million guess shows that we have not counted the numbers. We guessed.
Not at all different than how we might guess the numbers of wild life. No one has or can count every head. Which also explains why its less than accurate.

We don't know the actual numbers. It is only an educated guess by the powers that be based on certain criteria. But the point is that we have millions who were able to slip through our borders without being detected at the time they crossed.

Cut the crap however you want, he is a thug, thru and thru a little scumbag. Don't care who he is, or if he is legal or not, this kid, is scum, and deserves to be punished, whether he was born here or not, a thug is a thug, a lowlife, scumbag and gets no pity from me. Parents what parents, they could not have been parenting properly. Would this thug want his head on a silver platter!

There's a hell of a gap between 12 and 20 million.

If they declared amnesty you'd see THIRTY million plus crawl out of the woodwork with their hands out.

We've learned nothing from the ill conceived 1986 amnesty apparently.

BTW, what does an native-born American citizen killing people in Mexico have to do with illegal immigration? We don't know for certain exactly what the status of his parents is, and nonetheless, the status of his parents doesn't change his status (for better or worse).

If anything, he was in Mexico illegally.
