The solution to this problem is clear, we need to ban the production of heavy duty Ford trucks.

That just proves that illegals are growing ever more desperate.

Needless to say: our southern border needs to be fortified and deadly force to stop smuggling* either north or south, if needed.

If someone attempts to run the barriers that is.

This has been going on for years and years here. I've had 5 friends have this happen and 3 of the times they found them in the desert. They spray paint everything black, short out the lights and rip out the seats to get the maximum amount of drugs and "undocumented workers" inside.

That's what happens when the border is controlled by the violent criminal cartels.

And that is why the USA needs to step up and fortify our southern border using deadly force; if needed, to stop any person crossing without permission who refuses an order to stop.

Banning Ford pickup trucks may just be the answer. How many illegals can you cram into a smart car?

Or checking trucks going into Mexico. It's hard to pull a boat with a smart car.

It is not just ford trucks. They are stealing Dodge trucks too. My buddies truck was stolen while parked in the parking lot of the ice skating rink. They found it with the back seat striped out and the ignition busted.

It was used to smuggle illegals.

On-star is keeping them from the Chevy's
