The FBI Director admitted that awhile back. That is why we need to pull out all the stops to secure our borders. It isn't only illegals looking for work that are entering our country.

I've been saying for years that our porous borders are a matter of national security; nobody seems to care!

Certainly the pro-illegals don't seem to care.

Porous borders are a matter of national security, boogeymen are just waiting to sneak in, so the solution is... build a wall on the south border only.

Nobody who uses the "national security" argument cares about the canadian border. And, of course, nobody who uses the "national security" argument seems to remember that none of the 9/11 hijackers snuck in across an unwalled border.

You've got to be kidding me with that remark. Yes, we have had more than one domestic terrorist but there was nothing we could do about preventing them from commiting their terrorists acts as they had a right to be on our soil as U.S. citizens.

Why in the world should we leave our borders wide open to foreign terrorists also?

How much should we spend on fixing this problem in your opinion?

What's your point? We don't have enough problems so we must import many more?

Just like poverty, we apparently don't have enough illiterate, unskilled Americans, we must allow all the uneducated, unskilled who cannot make it in their own countries to come here.

It's way past time for us to start taking care of our own, illegals can go home and be taken care of by their fellow citizens and governments.
