GrantB, The States are about to complete the last few miles of a fence/barrier along the entire border, but smugglers have to backing auto
transports up to the Mexican side. or building ramps, and DRIVING OVER.
The three cities in the BBC report are across from large Texas citiies with "International Bridges" to facilitate commerce and traffic. Drug
cartels have taken over many border towns in the last few years.
There have been over 500 drug killings (usually machine-gun or beheadings) so far this year in Ciudad Juarez/El Paso as of 2/15/2009. The people
protesting were probably doing it in fear of the Cartels or in their pay.
The Mexican Federal Army had to come in because police were either dying or working for the dope traffickers. (This week's news included a story
about an entire city being overrun and evacuated by Cartels and their own armies)
Here's my solution: Hire 50,000 Kiwis and 150,000 sheep and station them every 100 yards in three shifts from Texas to California. Their job will
be to stop illegal crossings, or ask for a $500 U.S.D. "entrance fee," keep it and call the U. S. Border Patrol. The local Yanks would feed and
shelter them at their ranches.
Some scenery is nicer than other, so we'd rotate groups up and down the border every few weeks.
Come visit. Bring your friends.
