It is getting really frustrating that the Presdient ignores this issue.
I lived in Alpine for several years and worked on a drug task force and it gets harry along remote stretches of the river. We would just sit there and watch at times from hilltops and wait until the load moved away from the river and stop it.
I felt bad for my comrades in the BP since they were down there all the time and for the most part in 1 or 2 man units only tied to back-up via radio that in those cayon isn't exactyl reliable.

All due respect Mr President, you ignore this at your party's peril. 2008 aint that far away.
The Border Patrol should be equipped with satellite phones. It is shameful that they are not.
They should be one phone call and 15 minutes away from support by an Apache gunship equipped with hellfire missiles. If we turned a few of these Mexican Humvees into burning slag piles surrounded by dead Mexican soldiers this practice would rapidly stop.
The problem is the President does not ignore this...He orders the Sheriffs and Border Patrol to ignore it and he cites civilian Americans who are trying to stop the flow of drugs and illegals as Vigilantes...
Like George says, if yer not against them, you are for 'em...
You lived in Alpine? I heard it can get rough out there in Brewster County.
