You know your country is awful when your people pay 55k to get smuggled into the United States to request asylum.

LA JOYA, Texas (AP) -- Local police are accustomed to dealing with illegal border crossings but were astounded by the video of 15 Chinese immigrants unfolding themselves from the back of a sport-utility vehicle near this small border town.

Haven't read the article, but I will post my standard response regarding illegals: send them back.

This simply confirms that ANYONE from ANY COUNTRY can enter through our porous borders. Gee, I wonder how difficult it is for our terrorist enemies to gain entry.

When I was visiting Kentucky in May, they had situation where one of the Chinese restaurants there was busted for hiring illegal Chinese workers. Turns out they got these workers, as many Chinese restaurants do, from work agencies in New York that supposedly represent documented aliens. So it isn't just about building a fence. It's about stopping these business owners trying to turn a quick buck and breaking the law while they're at it. But that's nothing new now, is it?
