Keep. Building. Fence.
In the Middle East, this would be labeled an incursion and troops would be placed on the border immediately to prevent further such acts.
But, alas, this is not the Middle East.... yet.
Any connection to the Medellin execution?
Borders? We ain’t got borders. We don’t need borders. I don’t have to honor any STEENKING BORDERS!!
sounds like an invasion to me. let’s go get ‘em!
In a sane country, that would be considered an act of war.
Of course, Mr. Bush is probably checking with some International Court to find out how he should word our apology.
Another account here:
“State Department spokesman Gonzalo Gallegos in Washington said the encounter “stemmed from a momentary misunderstanding as to the exact location of the U.S.-Mexican border.””
What a complete crock of crap. The people who work along the border (on BOTH sides) know EXACTLY where it is.
A real fence would eliminate this problem.
Is there anyone in Washington D.C.? Hello?
40 such “incidents” this fiscal year?
That is an absolute outrage, and it’s long past time to put armed troops on the border and relegate the under gunned and under staffed Border Patrol to conducting formal arrests, and deportations of those caught by the military.
And there are STILL people at the highest levels of government who think we don't need a wall!!??
Build it, and build it now across the entire length of the US-Mexico border.
Wonder how many illegals came in while the agent was held up?
I keep saying napalm, napalm, napalm. Now some of
our 21 CENTURY do-gooders keep saying napalm is outdated.
But let’s see how a bunch of members of the Mexican army
running around, screaming and slapping themselves while
on fire would prevent this sort of incursion.
Make me President. I’d declare every county on the Mexican border under military jurisdiction. I’d set up fire and command centers along the border. Anyone entering the country would be shot on sight. Then I’d take one Arizona county at a time and bring in every INS agent I could find to start arresting and deporting illegals. I’d set up open-air courts that would run 24/7. I’d declare martial law and extradite them within minutes of conviction. Then move on to the next county. I would confiscate all their material possessions and investments in the United States, including cars, cash, and homes. If Mexico raised a protest I’d declare a state of military conflict and national security. You want to get serious about this or just let them take over?
I take it AP has relented on their extortion-by-the-word scheme?
Testing the waters?
