I care. I don't care what color you are or where you came from; if you are here illegally, LEAVE.

There are more agents on the southern border because there are more people trying to enter there, not to mention a big giant NARCO WAR going on down there. Blame the traffickers, the illegals, the employers who attract them with jobs, our government who won't do a damn thing to stop any of this, and the fat idiot hapless voters of this country who waddle their sweaty butts down to the polls every other years and send the same idiot clowns back to Congress TIME AFTER TIME, then watch Fox News and throw chicken wing bones and empty beer cans at the TV when they don't like what they're seeing. They want to starve the beast, but I guess they don't realize that the border patrol is PART of the beast and has only so much $$ to work with every year.

BTW, here's your race card back.

The fact is that there is a wall on the US Mexico Boarder. The US Canada Boarder is nothing but white lines painted across roads, and Do Not Enter signs.

There are 1,500 Border Patrol Agents patrolling 5,500 miles of the Canadian Border. There are 17,000 Border Patrol Agents patrolling just 2,000 miles of the Mexican Border. Of course with those numbers, there are going to be more apprehensions on the southern border.

Again nobody cares about white people illegally entering from Canada. It's all about the color of the skin. Thats why there are more Border Patrol Agents on the southern border.

First, you assume that Canadians are so poor that they have to run across the border to come to the United States illegally.

They don't. They hop in their car and drive over. If they want to stay longer they just overstay and become illegals that way.

Next, you assume that Canadians are lining up to escape poverty in their home country to stream into the United States.

They're not. Canada is a rich country with less poor people than the United States.



The southern border is heavily patrolled because that's where the vast, vast majority of waves of poor, unskilled and desperate people are streaming over. It's also a major point for human smuggling, and drug smuggling at a magnitude that Canada is not.


Only an idiot in charge would post as many border patrol agents on the Canadian border as they do on the Southern border.

Since KaaBoom quoted my post, I was going to respond. But, after reading your comments, I have absolutely nothing to add. You both nailed it.

For one thing the cost of immigration. It costs about $10,000 dollars to legally immigrate to the US. Thats the application fees, not counting legal costs. Thats like three years of wages in Mexico. If a Mexican has $10,000 he could buy a house and retire. He wouldn't need to immigrate to the US to work as a minimum wage janitor, dish washer, gardener, etc.

Second, there is no special quotas for Latinos. Thats just BS.

You obviously didn't even read the article. The article is about Canada being a gateway for illegal immigration. So the wealth of Canadians is not even relevant.

Yes. Every entry point is a GATEWAY for illegal immigration.

JFK airport is a GATEWAY for illegal immigration.


You kvetch is that the Canadian border isn't guarded because presumably white people come from the north, and presumably brown people come from the south.


I wonder though, whether your logic holds true as to why MEXICO guards and patrols ITS Southern border while not guarding its NORTHERN border the same way.

Could it have something to do with placing your limited resources where they are most needed? If 1000 illegals a year were coming in through Mexico we wouldn't have such a need for the controls. A million + a main entry point for drugs, etc..... then yes, yes you do.

Mexico has a lower unemployment rate than the United States.

The richest man in the world is a Mexican.


There are plenty of people in this world who would just love to come to the United States. People from far more desperate places than Mexico.... yet time and again we have to provide amnesty after amnesty because people from south of the border do not want to wait in line.

The cost of immigration ensures that our immigrants do not become public wards. Immigration checks are also important because they keep criminals out. Have you checked the prison population statistics in border states recently?


I don't know why you think we need to pay for both our OWN poor, and the poor of other countries as well. This isn't 1910 when there was zero public assistance and we didn't care if 5 families lived squeezed in a city tenement.

4,210 illegal immigrants were apprehended, on our Northern border in FY2012, by 2,206 BP agents
356,873 illegal immigrants were apprehended, on our Southwest border in FY2012, by 18,516 BP agents
