Our borders have been almost completely open for most of out history. It was not until the end of the 1980s when it became a political tool to blame
illegals for the decline in the economy because they were taking jobs. Even then through the 1990s having 3000 border agents was considered to be a
huge expantion. Now we have 28000 and by far the most secure southern border in our history coupled with some of the lowest numbers of illegals
trying enter. And yet everybody runs around like a bunch of idiots screaming about the border. Why? It is a political tool. Complain about the
border and claim nobody is doing anything about it, send down the National Guard in what is a purely symbolic action that does nothing, last a short
time and declare victory. Bush Jr, Obama and now Perry have all used this tactic. Securing the border is simply not possible. No border in the
world is secure.
Illegal border crossing slowed for a few short years because our economy collapsed and there was no work to be had. Nothing
much has really changed in that regard, yet it's now at epic proportions. You want to deny that the flow of illegal border crossings isn't currently
at an all time high?
This is an orchestrated event and now the president wants to give them safe passage by having them avoid the trip through Mexico. Imagine that
Hoping to stem the recent surge of migrants at the Southwest border, the Obama administration is considering whether to allow hundreds of minors and
young adults from Honduras into the United States without making the dangerous trek through Mexico, according to a draft of the proposal.
So we're also going to have to foot the bill to not only fly these people here, but pay for the screeners and everything else that goes along with
We can only pray that the Senate goes Red and then both Houses can finally get the balls to impeach this person who is destroying what so many gave so
much to defend.
Remember the Alamo!
