I don't happen to believe that 97% of the politicans in Washington, D. C. are on the take, although I'm not opposed to the idea that some of them are. I will admit that their votes cast an ominous cloud over their actions. I don't happen to think that the retirements of our elected officials in Washington are as dependent on Mexico's good will as you do. Beyond that, you and I probably agree on a lot more than we disagree.
Your post seemed to imply that "our" retirements depend on the flow of illegal aliens across our borders and I stridently object to that.
Who pays the retirements of our elected officials? You and I do. Are they pandering to us? Hell no. Who pays our retirements? Well, in some quarters it's becoming accepted that the Mexicans are and we better be careful. I'm not buying that for a second. That's why I responded as I did.

I understand, I wasn't as concise as I should have been and as I have been told, that leads to confusion.
Do I think most Pols are on the take. Yes. Otherwise, there's little excuse for their betrayal of our laws. All of them? Maybe not, but a VERY significant number.
Do I think the arrest of "Dog" was motivated by politicians who are currently in mexico's pocket. Yes.
Do I think the average citizen of the U. S. needs mexico (and the torrent of illegals flooding across the border to suck at the teat of American government largess) to retire. Not no, but Hell No.
