And yet the proillegals would have us believe that all illegals are honest hard working law abiding citizens. Yet another reason why we should use our military to patrol the border. Preferably from a tall wall with gaurd towers every 300 meters or so. Armed with 30 and 50 cal machine guns.

It’s nice to know that at least the Border Patrol knows who the dangerous elements are (excerpt from press release below) and takes the time to identify them. I wouldn’t want to see ignorant racists who are itching to shoot to kill any “brown” people pretending to protect our border.

“Agents are most often attacked by smugglers and criminal elements in areas where drug and human trafficking organizations have been entrenched. “

Racist??? What makes it racist to shoot those who are shooting at you?
Oh maybe I am so racist that I married a very brown skinned Thai national.
No this about protecting our borders. Its about our border patrol agents being allowed to defend themselves. The race card yet again... LOL how original.

Apparently you lacked the understanding of my post. Defending the border and identifying the criminal element and the areas of the most criminal activity and threats is what the border patrol is doing. Updating their various methods of protecting themselves also shows the ability to evaluate. That is rational and logical.

Blanket statements about shooting and shoot to kill by anti-illegal immigrant posters is racist when they choose not to identify the criminal element actually attacking the agents but lump all south of the border types together and creating an open season on them.

If the original post was a discussion on going after the violent criminal element attacking the border agents, then that would be a rational discussion. However it was post trying to associate all border crossers as violent thugs and a shout out to shoot them all. Has racists undertones and yes, it is the race card when the truly ignorant try to lump everyone in one class instead of identifying the truly dangerous.

No, it just makes you have a better palate, thai people have much better abilities with spices and seasonings. Didn’t you have an awakening the first time you tried real thai food and realized fresh cracked black pepper was not the ultimate as curry was?

Absolutely, Ozark-Baby

Our Border Patrol Agents should have the right to SHOOT TO KILL those violating our immigration laws and/or attacking any U.S. Law Enforcement Officer.

Our Military acts accordingly to protect and defend the borders of other countries, why not our own?

If you categorize the illegal immigrant population you will find the second largest class of illegal immigrants are those who overstayed their visa. Based on your statement above, are you advocating shooting to kill those types of illegal immigrants for no other reason than their visa has expired? You didn’t state that they had to also attack a law enforcement officer, your comment indicates they could just be here illegally and that is enough to kill.

This thread is about . . . Assaults Against Border Patrol Agents . . . !

I believe the majority of those assaults occur when the illegal is entering this country.

Attack ANY Law Enforcement Officer with a weapon (including attacking a Border Patrol Agent with rocks while illegally entering this country) qualifies for a SHOOT TO KILL approach.

We need to GET SERIOUS on our borders!

one thing I have learned in blogging is to never react strongly before reading twice and asking questions.
