ROBERT BAER, FORMER CIA FIELD OFFICER: But what I'm really afraid, Chris, is the next time one of these guys are going to get through. And what's it gonna do to this country? It's gonna rip it apart. Because people are gonna be looking for quick, immediate answers.
MATTHEWS: How so?
BAER: You know, they're gonna, they're gonna look, you know, crack down on, you know, who knows where it's gonna to end up? You're gonna see the Tea Party being, you know, being strengthened. You're gonna see people blaming the White House for a situation it didn't create.
BAER: It could affect the, you know it could affect the United States for a long time. Look, it got us into a war in Iraq we didn't need to be in...
MATTHEWS: Yeah well I agree.
The fact that outside/non student agitators were present and even bussed into Kent has been talked about by many. My grandparents lived in Kent during this time and often talked about the violence and the fires in the streets prior to May 4. Without these agitators the whole event could have been avoided.
When the nine members of the Hutaree militia group were arrested in late March near Adrian, Michigan, the MSM ran hard with the story. Within 48 hours, the template was set: A “right-wing extremist Christian” militia group had been planning to wreak havoc by killing law enforcement officers as a way to engage a wider war against the government.
Soon the MSM had the Hutarees tried, convicted and jailed.
Throughout most of April, the story faded from the news and left behind the public assumption that the Hutarees’ diabolical plot had been thwarted by the FBI in the nick of time.
Then, at an April 27 court hearing concerning the group’s disposition as they awaited trial, the lead FBI agent in the case against the Hutarees was called to testify before U.S. District Judge Victoria A. Roberts. That’s when, according to the Detroit News, the government’s case started showing some serious cracks:

The 2010-11 Budget: California's Fiscal Outlook
Over $20 Billion of Budget Problems Need to Be Addressed in Coming Months
Our forecast of California’s General Fund revenues and expenditures shows that the state must address a General Fund budget problem of $20.7 billion between now and the time the Legislature enacts a 2010–11 state budget plan. The budget problem consists of a $6.3 billion projected deficit for 2009–10 and a $14.4 billion gap between projected revenues and spending in 2010–11. Addressing this large shortfall will require painful choices—on top of the difficult choices the Legislature made earlier this year.
Nowhere in this report do they address illegal immigration.
2010: Arizona, the Legislature, and the $3.2 Billion Deficit
In response to a question, Sinema acknowledged that the State Pension Retiree Fund is solvent and that the much-maligned Photo Radar program provided $32 million for state coffers last year. She further disclosed that the Unemployment Insurance Fund is insolvent and borrows money from the Federal government to meet its obligations while the number one corporation with Arizonans on ACCESS remains Wal-Mart.
New Mexico faces potential budget issues for FY2011. In March 2010, Gov. Richardson vetoed a proposed tax on food, but signed other tax increases that will provide about $170 million next year to help balance the budget. The Legislative Finance Committee said in early April 2010, state revenues were $76 below projected levels. If revenues are insufficient at the end of the fiscal year, the difference to balance the budget comes from the state's cash reserves. Gov. Bill Richardson and legislators are relying on that money to avoid more spending cuts in the upcoming 2011 fiscal year. Gov. Richardson said then that he thought the taxes would be sufficient to balance the budget, and he also planned on $20 million of federal funds stimulus funds to shore up the budget. Lawmakers have criticized the Governor's reliance on one-time sources.
“Nineteen percent of youth aged 12 to 17 report past year illicit drug use,” the report says. That is approximately one out of every five teenagers in the United States.

One positive about the situation, when our country falls apart there will be no one at the border to stop the masses from exiting.

The problem I see with not entering legally is that we have no way to know who is a criminal or is infected with illness or not.
