Ok, I've seen enough. Anyone still not want all law enforcement involved now? How about the military?

First, they’re cloning BP vehicles. Now, they’re putting hits on our agents. If we don’t militarize our borders against these savage terrorists, no citizen of this country will be safe.

I swear the drug cartels and, by extension, Mexico itself has a death wish. Those idiots are going to goad us to the point that we (the US) WILL go into Mx proper and 'clean house'.

Tick tock............

We need to have armed military guards along the border. It needs to be treated like a "war zone", because it is a war zone.

Instead of worrying about Iraq and Afghanistan half a world away, I think that it's time that we start worrying about our own shores, and borders. I think it's about time that we get tough with Mexico, and tell them to deal with the problem, or we will do it for them!

I have no issues with immigrants that want to come here legally, and go through the necessary channels to obtain the rights to live and work here, just as my ancestors did. However; the ones that come here illegally, especially the ones with criminal intent need to be shipped back!!!

There's no way a drug cartel could whip the US military. I'd really love to see them try. As long as they don't attempt to reign in their force and allow them to go all out gonzo on them.

I agree with this. I have no problem with people that don't break the laws by entering the country legally.

I do however have a problem with the people that break our laws and enter the country illegally.

I would never illegally cross the border into another country and demand them to feed me, clothe me, give me health care, and care for my child.

I'm blind 100% -- as in, I can't see a thing. But you know what? I work and I work damned hard. I pay for my own food, my own health care, and take care of my child all on my own and I don't take any Government handouts because of my disability.

I'm self-employed (own my own business) and when I file my taxes I don't even claim the tax breaks I get for being blind. The reason I don't claim those are, IMO -- if I am "able-bodied" enough to earn wages to support myself, I do NOT qualify for Govt. support.

That kind of "help" should be given only to those that are not "able-bodied" enough to work and earn a livable wage.

Too bad the fence-jumpers don't have this same sort of "pride" ...

Your flippant responses regarding those who put their lives on the line for your freedom boggles my mind. I've noticed to pro-illegal aliens only stories printed by approval of La Raza are valid.
These brave men and women need the ability to blow these suckers away, pronto!
