Now border control at what cost? Some suburbs of Tucson are subject to daily car searches because of people who live nowhere near the border scared of brown people like you. People in these areas are more concerned about getting searched while just trying to go to work because white pasties in Kansas are afraid of da ileguls. As if some wall is going to fix it, at what cost? We destroy Mexican tourism like Puerto Penasco, build an expensive wall, ruin border cities like Nogales and Douglas, AZ. But you up there nowhere near it will feel safe while it has tunnels built underneath it.

I don't know many people who are afraid of someone's skin color. It' not fear of illegal aliens but objection to their presence here. I don't know why you'd mentioned white pasty skinned people in Kansas. Many people regardless of race or skin color or location object to illegal immigration and rightly so.

Enforcing our immigration laws is a lot less expensive than the $113 billion a year that illegal aliens cost us not to mention the loss of jobs, reduced wages and overcrowded conditions. The wall would pay for itself in no time. Ever heard of tunnel sensors?

I used to live 2 miles from the border in California (Imperial Beach). In general I was never afraid of any illegals, but they caused plenty of problems. The legal Mexicans there were great people, but a lot of the illegal males were involved in gangs. Very unpredictable and they would steal anything that wasn't nailed down.

The biggest problem we had was illegals sleeping on our enclosed back porch (apartment complex) in order to hide from border patrol. You'd get up in the morning and several would be out there. BP was constantly patrolling our apartment complex. It was a hassle.

Seal the border. They erected a fence in San Diego and it worked great. We can do it elsewhere as well.
