It's a real border, and we need to address it as a real border,” Ms. Napolitano said, calling on both Americans and Canadians to accept this “change of culture.”
It’s a little late. BOTH borders should have been sealed on 9/12/01. Now, we have no idea how many of our enemies have illegally entered our country courtesy of our porous borders.

I'm saddened by this as I love visiting Canada and think the USA and Canada should be closer allies. Now Mexico is a different story to me. At least there are no drug wars in Winsdor and Niagara, Ontario.

If anything the American side is more danerous when looking at Detroit and Winsdor.

No joke there.

San Diego=Windsor
Tijuana=Detroit

Never mind that Detroit is north of Windsor.

Needless to say: all the more reason to close/lock our southern border with Mexico----------we do not need the additional riffraff.

Except that there are no recorded evidence of successful terrorists coming through the border.

Technically speaking: Benicar used the word 'enemies'---------illegal aliens certainly do count as such.
