A good one would.

But the first requirement is not building something, it's getting leadership who cares more about our nation than some damned treasonous socialist mega-community.

Good Luck on that one, no previous administration has cared about the border issues either. This border did not get this bad under one administration. I have lived here over 30 years and it has been a steady progression, each administration has either ignored the problems or had a policy that made it worse.

I personally saw more illegals and drug traffic flowing through during the Carter and Clinton administrations than I do now. The fact is there have been efforts to enforce law on the border and that is part of the reason for the escalated violence we are seeing now. I know some areas are hotter spots now than my area is so it is hard for me to see the overall picture and I live right on the border. The other reason violence is escalating now is Mexico is the new Columbia with drug lords and mafia types in control and government officials no longer have any control of their law enforcement or their military; they are just figure heads.

Our government for what ever reason is not ready to admit to the real problems in Mexico. For that I do fault them, for sure I am not happy with President Bush and think he could do more. I think you are kidding yourself that the solution is to wait for an administration that will do more, we very well could get one that would do less.

I think the solution is to inform the people what is really going on, so we can stand together to bring pressure on our politicians to build a fence and enforce the laws. Now!! There are many steps in the process of closing the border, and I don't think any solution will work if a real fence/barrier is not step one.
