There was another thread on this subject that was closed. I made some comments that had people posting differing opinions. That is fine as that is
what makes America the greatest country in the world, our right to freely speak no matter how wrong others are.
I pointed out that I have no problem with this as it shows the US government and specifically the Border Guard are getting off their collective asses
and finely doing their job.
I think it is a great first step with check points throughout the USA should be considered. There is just as large of an influx of illegal aliens in
the midwest, non-border areas, as the border areas.
People get upset about their rights being abused by questioning. I have no problem with this as how else would a person find illegal aliens.
I'm sure someone will make comments about profiling by officials. Well, the 80 year old black grandmother is not the prime terrorist suspect or
illegal worker that we should be looking for. A car or van load of younger people of different ethnic origin than white European or blacks, should be
examined. Call it what you want, but this is what it will take to find the people that should not be in our great land.
Its not an issue about illegal search and seizures as protected by the fourth amendment. Both the IRS and Border Patrol have broad powers already in
place for these very issues, which have been upheld in court numerous times.
Someone will make the comment about a constitution free zone with the meaning that the American citizen has no Constitutionally guaranteed rights or
protect, no this is wrong. A citizen with still have every right offered by our founding documents, it's the people who are not citizens that will
not have automatic coverage.
I especially enjoy comments about how this isn't about illegals, but just a way for the Government to control the entire population. If the US
Government has you, as an individual, on it's radar; or you just think they do, you are doing something blatantly wrong or just plain paranoid. They
really don't have the time to waste on every individual within the USA, it's a math thing. There are a lot more of us than them.
I have strong issues with the ACLU and I was a strong financial donor through the 70's and mid 80's when they changed their policies and direction
of cases they take. I still talk to several attorneys that represent them with other business, but I do not trust their propaganda they spread. The
headline they use is a prime example of this mindset and uses trigger words. It should have been "Government agents are enforcing border laws within
100 miles of the border".
