Hmmm, Does this mean all illegals that are currently here illegally will eventually be paying $5,000. per person. If they are going to stay anyways, and its looking like thats the only way through amnesty. It would be a lot of money for the Government, trouble is proving they are illegal since they can use anchor babies

This American man, with his Canadian cohort were on a simple bike ride on a path that goes from the United States and into Canada. They were snatched up and searched by Border Patrol agents simply because of their proximity to the border. Then the American was fined $5000 because he didn't ride his bicycle through a border patrol check point?
What sort of madness is this? We have an innocent Marine in a Mexican jail. 11 million plus Illegal immigrants in the country as a conservative estimate, costing America countless billions a year, and the border patrol fines an AMERICAN for going for a bike ride through the beautiful northwest country side because he didn't go through a check point?
On top of that, they simply deported the Canadian? What about the thousands of illegal immigrants who cross the border every day? How come they are not deported? Our government would rather hand out bus and plane tickets like candy and just allow them free reign throughout the country with no form of ID, no form of medical screening.
Apologies if this is in the wrong section, it's kinda hard to place this. I just wish their was some sort of hotline to Washington to report idiotic stories like this.

What a dumbass. If he would have smiled and said "no habla engles", they would have given him a medicaid card and a how to vote democrat brochure and welcomed him to the country.
And I've read the Canadian/US border is very easy to penetrate in some areas, but don't quote me on it, I don't know if it's fact or fiction.
