Enter this country legally, and you won’t have to visit your relatives through a fence.

Quote:
SOUTH COUNTY — In the end, immigration activists never made it to the site of yesterday's planned demonstration, a plaza dubbed Friendship Park that sits on a bluff overlooking the ocean at Border Field State Park.

For the first time, Border Patrol agents formally sealed off access on the U.S. side to the plaza, for years a popular meeting place on the U.S.-Mexico border for families to visit through the fence.

The Department of Homeland Security announced late last year that it will prohibit all public access to the park where a secondary wall is under construction. Since then, the plaza has become a symbolic touchstone for those who debate border enforcement policies.

Yesterday, two activists were detained and later released without charge after they tried to approach the fence against orders from Border Patrol agents.

“This is the first day they've chosen to enforce the ban on public access,” Fanestil said. “Before, they tolerated our presence. Clearly they will tolerate us no more.”

Meeting place sealed off
Rightly so. Little by little, step by step.

It's about f**kin time!

It's strange that travelling legally to the US by plane or driving to a US border checkpoint never seems to cross their minds for reason ...

Furthermore, I really hope that those fences sustain any damages. Does anyone have any estimate on how tall those fences are? I also hope that a deep cement foundation is laid underneath it.

"Tolerate us no more" sounds like another La Raza ,MALDEF,ACLU, pity party about to start. Could be another illegal alien "sob, cry" song. Janet Murgia could sing and dance. I think I ran out of sympathy a long time ago.

Well one thing is for certain, as far as running out of sympathy, you are not alone. There are millions of us who ran out of sympathy and patience with these insolent, arrogant, whiny, beggars years ago. Too bad the nomads are used to being treated like trash in their own countries, otherwise they might still have enough sense to realize that we don't want them either and find a new country to squat in. There own would be nice wouldn't it?

Maybe, we should all learn insults is Spanish.

1. Get your diseased ass back over the border!
2. You are as welcome in America as lepers at a dance.
3. You are an illegal alien tresspassing in America, leave now!
4. Don't make me come after you with my Louie Ville Slugger.
5. Get the Hell out of my country.
6. Legal or Leave.
7. "Get off my Lawn".

Ugly, disgusting, and revolting. Gives me a look into a place I wish I couldn't see. Please keep it to yourself.

And before we begin to learn insults in Spanish, we might be wise to study the spelling of Kentucky cities, in English. It's "Louisville".
