The truth about border security -- there is none. The reason the cartels are fighting over Juarez is for these trafficking corridors into the USA, they are that worth dying and killing for. The Obama administration makes jokes about a very serious national security issue - why?

An increase in the number of Border Patrol agents has not helped much, say Miller and West, because federal policy ties their hands.

Therein lies the problem. As long as their hands are tied behind their backs, it wouldn’t matter if we had 1 million agents at the border. The Border Patrol should have the same directives as our military guarding the borders of foreign lands. It was a joke to see Napolitano giving pointers on border security in Afghanistan, while our own borders are so porous even a child can enter with relative ease.
