Rank and file members of the US Border Patrol are increasingly upset with what they perceive as poor decisions and general inaction to the problems of
illegal immigrants crossing our southern Border. In particular, they single out Sen. John McCain of Arizona, who they say holds an unrealistic
approach to border enforcement. They also showed disapproval with Arizona governor Janet Napolitano, who recently vetoed a bill that would have
allowed local police to arrest illegal immigrants for trespassing.
With lawmakers from the House and Senate yet to reconcile their competing immigration bills and President Bush still touting a temporary worker
program, some rank-and-file defenders of the border are lambasting the notion that deporting illegal aliens is impractical.
Local 2544 members serve on the front lines, and they are hopping mad with the administration and with some lawmakers in particular.
"We strongly oppose any attempts to reward illegal alien lawbreakers. We have risked our lives to keep them out of this country. The slick
politicians can call it ?guest-worker' or ?earned legalization' all they want, but it's amnesty."

I cannot understand the actions of McCain and Napolitano, given that they represent one of the four border states with the biggest burden of stopping
McCain in particular should realize that the paperwork and efforts required to support these "guest worker" proposals are totally unworkable. How
can you prove or disprove a claim that an illegal immigrant has been in our country more than five years?
The voters in this country made the right decision when they soundly rejected McCain's bid to be president.
