I think this goes here, if not please move it to it's proper category.

WASHINGTON (AFP) - The House of Representatives voted to build a wall along the US border with Mexico to stop illegal immigration. The 260-159 voice vote on an amendment to a bill on illegal immigration "mandates the construction of specific security fencing, including lights and cameras, along the Southwest border for the purposes of gaining operational control of the border.

What is our government thinking?! A wall? Determined people find ways to get around and over a wall. Lights and cameras can be taken out with rocks or bullets from a gun. So that doesn't make any sense.

The US border with Canada was not forgotten. The bill "includes a requirement for the Secretary of Homeland Security to conduct a study on the use of physical barriers along the Northern border."

I didn't know we had illegal immigrants coming in from Canada, too. My the US is just being bombarded with illegal immigrants. Why not just vote to wall up the whole US? Start at the west coast, come across the northern states, come down the east coast, and then finish with the southern states. That should cure their paranoia.

This is so, of course the American people can't go anywhere. They gotta have all of us in the middle of the meat grinder. Kill as many of us citizens as they possibly can in the upcoming 2nd Civil War.

They don't want any "Terrorist Suspects" to escape the melee, that will be a massacre, when they come to get all of our guns from us. They will be knocking on each & every door.
