The agent's family is in my prayers. I understand there was also a shoot out between smugglers and BP a few days ago. Smugglers opened fire with an AK 47 at that incidence.

If he stays on the run long enough he will be eligible for citizenship under the Dream Act.

I can never find the words, that I want to say, when something like this happens.

Dear family members of this Courageous officer, of our laws, I will pray for you and our nation.

Please Lord, comfort the family, of Brian Terry. Lord, grant them a blessing beyond anything these family members think they will ever see. The family has lost one of their Heroes. America has lost another Hero, Lord. God, Welcome Brian Terry Home, for Brian was defending us, Lord. Brian sacrificed himself for us. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Damned hateful, violent Tea Partiers no doubt.

God bless the families and friends of the dead officer.

RIP Agent Terry. America is proud of you.

Once Upon A Time In The West the United States and Mexico happily exchanged day visits, picnics, fun dinning and shopping days, painting and history trips over both borders etc. Today it is far too dangerous to venture into either countries back roads, sometimes even the most traveled roads.

This is not the time to have anything less than full justice....social justice is allowing the drug war to accelerate - time to bring back frontier justice with judges who understand and enact the law as written.

When are we going to formally declare war?

The Southern Hemisphere has been heating up for years. When are we going to protect our own? Mexico and other countries are getting worse....I’m waiting for SofS and HS to grant refugee status to what now crosses illegaly.

My prayers for this man’s family for trying to protect us. This is an unimaginable loss.

Curses to those in power who have done nothing about it.

"Thank you Barry and Janet for your gross dereliction of duty. Hope you are sleeping well.s/"

Unfortunately you will have to add GWB and Ted Kennedy to your list of responsible government slugs. GWB's administration showed almost a complete contempt for the US Border Patrol. Barry and Janet are certainly carrying on the tradition of destroying this country one illegal or 3rd world immigrant at a time. A tradition started by Ted the swimmer Kennedy.

That area just north of Nogales is downright hazardous. I won’t go to Patagonia Lake anymore because of it. Santa Cruz County is a lost cause until something drastic changes.

Prayers for the family of the USBP agent.

Not only are we not declaring war...we're retreating! There are signs up in areas well inside the American side of the border telling Americans to stay out because it's too dangerous. So I guess we've ceded those areas over to Mexico. The white flag of surrender is no doubt next.

Indeed.

And compounding the pain are the democrats pushing to grant illegals citizenship rights. I mean, come on, assault or kill an BP Agent and get away, get your citizenship. Oh, and we can;'t forget those loony left cities where they will not cooperate with ICE or the BP. . .thereby protecting those violent criminal illegals.

I was thinking that BEFORE I read this.

Treason trials for all the traitors selling us and our children into slavery at the hands of the Narco-Criminals of the Western Hemisphere.

Just think folks...in a day or so the Nightmare Amnesty act has a chance of passing the Senate.

Then the same criminals will get another amnesty, and if not for themselves, their children..who will then be able to sponsor them for permanent residence.

Probably even get to keep the AK-47s as a memento.

“...arrested and tried for treason...”

Please clue me in as to exactly WHO will do the “arresting” and WHO will do the “trying for treason”...

I don’t see a long line of senators, representatives, or judges forming up. Half of them are PART OF IT, and the other half is terrified of being called a WORD - “racist”!!! It’s one large criminal conspiracy aimed at “changing” two and half centuries of the greatest country that ever existed.

Once upon a time we lived in a country that, by and large, although we had our differences, considered itself “American”. We tore ourselves apart once, for five years, mid-19th century, then rebuilt ourselves into something pretty amazing in the annals of human history.

Along the way, we let (”tolerated”, if you will) a subversive European political ideology creep into our system under the guise of First Amendment-protected political speech. We’re reaping the results of that now.

We had people back in the 30s, 40s, 50s and early 60s that actively fought that subversion. Now, the subversives are elected to power and are using the opportunity to further erase us as a people, as a culture and as a nation, using Marxist/Leninist race-baiting, class-warfare tactics.

This is HIS ARMY that’s marching back and forth across our southern border. THEY’RE saying it out loud. Listen to LaRaza, MeCHa, and any of the other groups. They’re talking “RECONQUISTA”; we’re worrying about “tax cuts for the rich” - or whatever the latest Democratmarxist talking points du jour are.

So, until you/we find someone who’s actually willing to walk in with a warrent for arrest and slap some handcuffs on these criminals in suits and ties, and actually make them do the Perp Walk, it’s all just pissing in the wind.

Sorry to be so glum, but it ain’t gonna happen.

Obama does not have time for this he has no admin or recourse left and begged slick willy to help him. Has a mess with his comrades under Pelosi and MO is ticked their Hawaii vacation is delayed.

America being attacked in any way is the least of his worries this is the only thing Obama cares about.

Obama may have to put Hawaii vacation on ice for a few days

Zero has failed to do his duty under the oath of the office of President in many issues, this one being chief, as it is the main purpose for government.

Impeachment is imperative, come January 3, 2011.

And no, this is no joke.

2011 is going to be a hell of a year, and I do not mean that in a good way.

I am saddened to hear of this. It should not have happened.

There is a dereliction of duty that goes all the way to the White House. If our political players were doing their job, things like this would not happen.

When is the U. S. going to get serious about protecting our citizens from foreign nationals?

We need troops on our southern borders. And when it comes to problems on that border (other than at border crossings), it’s fine with me if they start shooting first and asking questions later.

I won’t hold my breath, brother. Not the same citizenry it once was.

We’re a collection of hostile tribes now, all fighting for a piece of the pie.

For the record, though, it’s a nice thought, and I’m on your side. I just don’t see it happening.
