If government wants control...what better way to get that control by making control needed by the lawless environment that they are creating!....Read up on the REAL ID act, the North American Union, look at illegal immigration ect...

The fact that those two border agents were jailed doing their job IS A DISGRACE!!!!!!
I'm not sure if Bush has taken any action (I don't think he has). An article I read mentioned one of the border patrol agents was beaten within an inch of his life when the other inmates found out who he was and both these heros were treated far worse than the terrorists held at Guatanamo prison. Absolutely ridiculous.

Link to a legitimate article about the border patrol agent in jail beating incident:

Ex-Border Patrol Agent Beaten in Prison - washingtonpost.com

BUT...let's stay on topic please.

I was just listening to Ames Holbrook tonight on CNN. The problem with deporting illegal immigrants back to Mexico is the prisoners now claim they are from Cuba. Cuba will not take back prisoners. The illegal immigrant comes here with no documentation so how will the USA prove they are from Mexico?

While I think it is pitiful that our own country will set these thugs free why are they? Would you support execution if the criminal can not prove where they are from? Housing them for life in our US prisons?

None of the choices would be favorable but setting a thug free is not the answer either.

According to what a border agent stated, there are minor colloquial differences between Cuban and Mexican dialects. So many border agents can tell after a few months on the job, whether or not some illegal immigrants are lying about their country of origin.

OK If they are criminals who have commited a crime on our land why cant we put them in our prison? If the crime is muder,rape are a hate crime then why don"t we use execution, we do on our own people why not illegals they must obey our laws also.Guess if they did that they would not be here!!!
As for any refusing to take there illegals back I do not see where they have that right to refuse......maybe because our government allows them to.
Use sanctions against them!!

Thats what I do not understand, we do not need any-more laws on this,the one we have would work fine if our government would use them
