Of course it is, but land barons and wanna be slave owners try to justify using illegal labor, subsidized by tax payers.

It's very easy to get riled and type your mind. Breathe, breathe...

There has been discussion for the National Guard to be placed at our border yet am seeing lip service. I'm wondering the agenda of those who continue to ignore this issue.

Once again. Illegals in agriculture is not the topic at hand. Its the murder of a rancher.

This link illustrates 1 simple fact. Agriculture is not the magnet that draws 10+ million illegals.

the point of all of this is really that we have a border state in mexico that is clearly out of control with drugs and crime, and we have no defense from that crime crossing into the united states.

how many more dead citizens will it take before we decide to secure our border and protect our citizens?

The friends and neighbors decried political inaction, called for a National Guard buildup on the border and demanded that law-enforcement agents be given permission to use deadly force on immigrants and smugglers who attempt to escape.

"Seal the border," said Don Kimble, a local rancher who moderated the discussion as a wind blustered outside a one-room schoolhouse. "Put the military on the border. If we can stop those people on the border, there won't be somebody coming 15 miles up here and shooting Rob Krentz."

I think the anger is building over this poor man and to throw amnesty in the faces of Americans would only now serve to create even lowr poll numbers for Obama and the senators and congressmen who support this legislation. You either want a country or you do not and to have open borders and unchecked immigration you will lose what you have in due time.

So far 30,000 + 1. Americans are watching this one closely.

I wonder if it were 30,000 + 1 judges, or police officers or children of politicians or politicians if this dilly dally approach would be tolerated?

Murdering a popular rancher is very bad ju-ju in rural Arizona----------trust me.

Why of course not. We wouldn’t have an illegal immigration problem if the families of politicians were victims. Sadly, police officers have been killed by illegals nationwide. I guess they don’t rank high enough to warrant action.

This murder is receiving national attention, and citizens are outraged. I think the fact that Mr. Krentz was so kind to illegals has made his death even more appalling. Hopefully, this will be the straw that broke the camel’s back. At least then he will not have died in vain.

Rest in peace, Mr. Krentz.
