Stupid, indeed!

Quote:
"United States is stupid...I come back every time." Those words were spoken by Mexican national Rolando Mota-Campos to an immigration agent after his 11th arrest in the United States. Incredibly, Mota-Campos has been deported three times and has vowed to return again after completing his prison term and yet another arguably meaningless deportation to Mexico.

Be careful: Senor Mota-Campos; your insolent attitude will backfire-------very badly and not just against you personally.

Mota-Campos is a man after my own heart. I agree with his statement. For the greatest country on earth to be beaten into such a 'guilt trip' that it will not even control its own borders, is pretty stupid indeed. Three rep points for Mr. Mota-Campos, wherever he is, for the willingness to point this out.

His honesty reminds me of (I THINK it was) the late comedian George Burns, who was quoted as saying "I don't want ANY PART of an organization that would accept ME as a member"...or somethinmg like that. Sounds like Mr. Mota-Campos has little respect for a nation that would be so easy for him to 'sneak into'.

Guess most guys don't feel much different about "girls who put out on the first date", as they do about "nations with 'easy' borders"....

Great analogy! Personally, I've always believed in "playing hard to get."

Backrubs work wonders............(Gawd; I am just ornery today ).

All joking aside: our illegal friend needs to serve time in a Tent City in N Dakota---------if tents are good enough for our Armed Forces--------they sure as hell are acceptable for illegal immigrants guilty of Felonies.

Yea,
Talk about stupid.
The U.S. Border Patrol called me the other day, trying to recruit me.
I said, "why would I bother getting a job with an organization where I'm not allowed to do my job, and if I DO my job I get punished, and the courts let the criminals go, and the government won't stop the flood of illegals, and the public does not support us, and the media calls us "fascists" and on and on?"
The guy was silent for a couple of seconds.
So then I hung up.
I doubt they'll ever call back.

Very sad and very true. The absolute lack of respect and support by our government(with the exception of a few congressman) for our border patrol is disgusting-it makes me ill.

Apply Mexican law along our southern border---------against Mexico.

Then we will hear the screams of anguish (hypocrites) eminating from Mexico City.
