Bump to Tom!
At least Tom is getting some news. I'll wait to see if this makes it into law with any of the original content.
Congrats to Tancredo. Too bad we don't have more like him.
Oh no a two front war, Canada<--US-->Mexico
I'm so glad to hear this.
If we can get the illegal immigration thing under control, then perhaps we don't need the broad sweeping powers of the Patriot Act. I kinda think that the Patriot Act needs revision, gives govt. too many powers.
That's another 239 people who will never darken the steps at the White House again.
Frankly, I think that Tom Tancredo is a loon. While protecting our border is fine (I'm much more concerned about the Canadian border than the Mexican one myself), I don't think it should be done at the expense of all immigration, which is what Tancredo wants. The best way to stop illegal immigration, in my opinion, is to increase the # of people allowed in the U.S. legally.
1. Does anyone think this boondoggle will actually work?
2. How many of my tax$$$ are going to go to crooked contractors on this? And the maintenence for years every tiime some Mexican blows a hole in it.
3. I must admit, I used to think Tancredo was a yahoo. But, I was surprised that he's highly articulate and intelligent. But, this is just a "Let's DO Something!" boondoggle. I don't think the USA should be symbolized by barbed wire, even if it was workable.
No need to read any further...
Tancredo is the new Wilson (used to be Republican Governor of California). I hope he doesn't succeed in turning the Hispanic vote to the Democrats for a generation like Wilson did.
There is a way to get the same thing accomplished without sounding like you have Mexicans.
Fences are too expensive. We should just use metalstorm technology.
way to go.
