I see, so since there in no 100% guarantee that we will be safe from terrorism whether it be domestic or foreign we should just allow our borders to be wide open to the foreign type of terrorism? Amazing coming from someone who served many years in our military.

Basically, yes. It's not cost effective especially since they've already shown they can enter via airport just fine. I mean, it's not 100% guaranteed my house won't be broken into today when I'm gone but yet I will just have 1 lock on my door. No moat, no killer dogs, no guards, no sniper towers.

How much are you willing to spend (and keep in mind money you spend on this boondoggle can't be used for things that are actually effective in improving security).

Whatever we save on healthcare, prison lodging, housing benefits, schools, education, and all the other things we give the 20-30 million deadbeat Criminal Illegal Aliens who we kick out.

What an utterly ridiculous thing to say.

Not wanting to make it easy for foreign terrorists to infiltrate our country is NOT the same thing as FORGETTING Oklahoma City. I live only one state away and was 20 when it happened, so it's UNLIKELY I'll FORGET it EVER.

How DARE you.

Indeed ... The acute debacle at America's Southern border has truly created an unprecedented violent crime rate increase within America !!!

It appears that our all wise gobbermint will never acknowledge this fact nor do a damn thing about getting the illegals the hail outta here!
