Skip to comments.US to leave Mexican border crossing to rangers (proposal to open an unmanned port of entry)

BIG BEND NATIONAL PARK, Texas (AP) -- The bloody drug war in Mexico shows no sign of relenting. Neither do calls for tighter border security amid rising fears of spillover violence.
This hardly seems a time the U.S. would be willing to allow people to cross the border legally from Mexico without a customs officer in sight. But in this rugged, remote West Texas terrain where wading across the shallow Rio Grande undetected is all too easy, federal authorities are touting a proposal to open an unmanned port of entry as a security upgrade.
By the spring, kiosks could open up in Big Bend National Park allowing people from the tiny Mexican town of Boquillas del Carmen to scan their identity documents and talk to a customs officer in another location, at least 100 miles away.

I’m pretty sure that’s what we already have.
Why even have a border.
The DemocRATS’ internal polls must be looking pretty grim. Gotta get more illegals in here to help out with the vote in November.
Voters for Democrats. The Country is done
1. Gun-smuggling stings with no gun-tracking
2. Money-laundering stings with NO arrests
3. BP murdered on patrol, possibly by FBI informant
4. ICE officer murdered in Mexico
5. Innovative border checkpoints with NO guards
Conclusion: US authorities *ARE* major drug-dealers
Another step toward the NAU?
Better yet, I wonder how many have actually gotten across...
only 9 posts for a story like this?
There's lots of money in illegal drugs.
Who uses these drugs?
Which groups on the political spectrum are well-known users of illegal drugs?
Which groups on the political spectrum are well-known advocates of legalizing illegal drugs?
Strange. I noticed some posts were deleted, including mine. Didn’t say anything offensive.
They would have to be one tough hombre to cross the border at Big Bend and hike across the park to civilization.
What did you say???
I have walked across the border to Boquillas. There is nothing there except a few adobe huts and some burros. The river is very shallow. No bridge. Boquillas is a dusty little nothing town. I am not even sure you can access it from Mexico. It is at the bottom of Buquillas Canyon, on the Mexican side.

One of the few places that is actually in the middle of nowhere and quite beautiful and very rugged.
All this border crossing will do is to legitimize the border crossing for those who have the credentials to cross the border.
All of those who do not have the credentials will continue to walk across just like you have and I have.
Turn the border over to U.S. Citizen militias and give them a green light. Done.
The Fed Gov is too busy crapping in it’s pants and sitting in it, to be of any use.
The act in itself of allowing more illegals in when we are already suffering JUST SO OBAMA CAN PAY THEM WITH CIGS AND DOLLARS TO VOTE A STRAIGHT DEM TICKET AND the act that is Obama telling terrorists come on in!
All of the GOP Presidential contenders better speak up on this loud and clear while screaming-TREASON towards Obama!
Perry will be screaming about this. This is also another way for terrorists to slide in the USA.
Your comment was deleted for profanity.
Sending copies of death certificates to the Board of Elections is racist. Keep them voting. Death is merely a disability, and shouldn’t stand in the way, not with all those illegals helping.
Ah okay. Could have sworn I threw an asterisk in there just for that purpose. Thanks for letting me know.
“Perry will be screaming about this. This is also another way for terrorists to slide in the USA.”
I doubt any terrorists would choose this border crossing kiosk as they could simply walk across the river 100 meters down stream and there would likely be no one to stop them.
All this kiosk does is provide a place for people to legitimately cross just as they could at any port on entry.
And yet...we’re supposed to “feel” safe? We’re supposed to be at ‘war’ and the borders are wide open. In the meantime, TSA fondles us at the airport while you could smuggle the USS Enterprise across the border—undetected. Sounds like a fraud to me.
Oh terrorists don’t need to bother with our southern border. They fly into our nation with a passport from terrorist states, and speed right through. Our government is so complicit with the movement to take us down.
Can’t speak to other removed posts, but the #8 (or so) removed from above was clearly performed in order to protect that person —I saw it.
The post revealed a family relation of that freeper, and if some bad person knew that info, then that freep MIGHT come into danger (even if unlikely).
Sometimes I’ve seen good innocent stuff removed, but that one case was clearly done to protect that person.
Unmanned but using drones with machine guns would be fine.
“...talk to a customs officer in another location, at least 100 miles away.”
Jose, have any drogas on you?
What the Chamber of Commerce lobby wants the Chamber of Commerce lobby gets.
Highest levels = Obama/Calderon???? And what the heck are we conserving? IMO that $2.3 million can be reallocated to strategic fencing.
An unmanned entry point is now called a “security upgrade”. wow
Of course, this is all part of the plan.
500,000 illegals march on Dallas Texas, 2006:
Under Rick Perry as Governor of Texas, and President Bush, from Texas at the Federal level, 500,000 illegal aliens march on Dallas Texas, waving foreign flags in their faces, while making demands and threats.
And if you admit to haing prohibito items they will tell you to take a siesta until the federales come to arrest you.
Lose, lose, lost?
(Please forgive any double pings.)
Considering appeasement of the ILLEGAL hordes is high on the list of priorities for both major parties, this doesn't surprise me in the slightest. They're in a contest, it seems. to see who can pander the ILLEGAL crowd the most.
Dios bendice América.
I would have manned border crossing situated where legal traffic demands. The rest of the border would be designated as a training range for the US Military for all kinds of training firing. The Mexican government would be billed $1,000 per illegal stupid enough to travel into a training zone and get killed or maimed. Get any crap from Mexican government or drug cartels ... take them out completely.
Sure seems like the people that are elected to run this country are intent on detroying it.
Step 2: Unmanned voting booths along side all these kiosks in time for 2112 election.
Step 3: Obama gets AS MANY votes AS HE NEEDS from that polling location to win Texas and thereby the nation.
THIS would be a security UPGRADE???

Gov. Rick Perrys meeting at the Austin airport with President Barack Obama on border security lasted a mere 34 seconds, and Perry had to hand a letter on the issue to presidential adviser Valerie Jarrett because Obama declined to personally accept it.
“US proposes surrender to Mexico”
>>Why even have a border<<
Border, we have a border? I mean, are you sure?

Sounds like a very good plan.
I think we should change our motto from E pluribus unum to WTF?
Let me fix that just a tad:
It's crystal clear that the people that are elected to run this country are absolutely dead set on detroying it and creating a marxist bloody revolution.
Completely insane unless you want the southwestern states to become northern Mexico! I think Hobama would like that! Less states fr him to have to count!
