Well, the tile says it all in my opinion.

Illegal flow from Mexico worse than any gas price concerns

It seems like forever we've been consumed with the high gas prices. This run-up in energy costs has diverted our attention away from other pressing issues that need addressing, but we can't seem to take our eyes off the pump. Politicians are counting on that. U.S. Rep. Raul Grijalva, D-Ariz., is quietly sponsoring a couple of bills in Congress that would extend federal wildlife protection to about 84,000 acres along the U.S.-Mexico border at Coronado National Forest. This would effectively move the border 30 miles to the north. It would also effectively create a safe haven for drug runners and coyotes. The only chance we have in stopping illegal entry into our country is for Border Patrol agents to peer into Mexico to see who's coming. A 30-mile buffer zone would make it impossible to do that.

I for one, would stop complaining over 4 dollar a gallon gas if they would get the illegals in check.
