Yes 1751texan those Republicans are shooting themselves in the foot. Politicians on BOTH sides of the issue have failed at this issue.

Homeland Security under Napolitano is playing to both sides instead of being consistant and Republicans are also misguided too. Accountability doesn't change with party affiliation.

Very strange times. The USA is handing asylum out like hotcakes to the families of the vicious cartels.

Meanwhile the border remains very open to the cartels to do whatever the hell they like. They can smuggle in drugs, humans, pirated CDs, they can smuggle out weapons, money - whatever it is they want to do, they are allowed to do it.

When things get too hot for them as a result of their violent and criminal ways, all they have to do is pack up and move over, and demand their asylum handouts.

You must be kidding.
Who's doing the big business, the American side or the Mexican side?
Why is the border open?
The most powerful country in the world can't close their southern border?
Their criminal ways...., you must be joking...
The border is the pantry that supplies the richest country in the world, no POOR AND DESTITUTE country can't stop that.
Blame your local politicians that are in the cut, blame pandering politicians.
Who's doing big money selling weapons?

Except Mexico is one of the wealthiest nations in the world. Among the top 14 nations.

And who is buying and stealing weapons? How do they get the money for them? Buy selling dangerous drugs and other criminal activities. (Certainly we all know that the cartels' crimes aren't limited to drug dealing)

Besides - weapons have nothing to do with it. Guns make no decisions, they are simply inanimate objects - like rocks are, and in this country we have Second Amendment Rights. Buying guns here is legal and keeps us safe.

If Mexicans don't believe in weapons, then that's what their own customs agents are for, and Mexico could also stop contraband from coming over it's border - if it chose to do so.

C'mon.....
In Mexico they love their "mordida", but also in the US.
Who's doing the big business, the wholesaler or the retailer?

Just like the other cartel business of drugs and trafficked and smuggled humans.

It would cause an uproar if gun shops in the USA put up signs "No Mexicans allowed" and just like the drug distribution networks that exist, the weapons are similar.

Millions of illegal and legal immigrants work these distribution networks. Just like they can sell their marijuana, heroin, meth, cocaine everywhere throughout the USA, they can easily obtain weapons, legal purchases if they need to. Or they can steal them. Pawn shops are a good source of stolen weapons.

Also they can get them from their own military and police - the mordida works for that very well and so does theft. They can import weapons from Central America, China, Venezuela. Just like large shipments of cocaine can be flown in from Colombia and Venezuela, so can large shipsments of weapons be brought in.

The US would have stooped it if they wanted.
Not in the agenda.

Yes, we all realize that.

It was supposed to be a government of the people, for the people but it's become a government for the cheap labor corporations and greedy elites that want cheap labor and North American Unions which is only for the purpose of the corporations.

And just like we've seen - NAFTA did not benefit either the USA or Mexico, the big NAFTA cities on the border like Juarez are collapsing.
