Neither one gives a fig about how this affects the future of the U.S. They are like two vultures cawing at each other over a dying corpse - they only care what they get out of it.
The democrats will try to use an official lie and deem it secure. Otherwise, they are cagey enough to realize that if
they admit the border is not secure, and that they can indeed secure it, then it begs the question as to why it was not secured decades ago, before the millions flooded in to cause the problem.
It will be a big deal who decides and how they decide if the border is secure. The area of the border where I live has fewer illegal crossers than in past years going strictly by numbers. The reality is that fewer illegals are crossing here just to go to work, the number of smugglers seems to have grown if anything and I believe they are far more dangerous than in the past. In years past it was very unusual for smugglers that were caught to be armed and now it is unusual if they are not heavily armed.
Illegal traffic is down in my area but the danger level is higher in my opinion. Other areas may or may not have a decrease in illegal traffic, so it will be hard to determine and I can imagine a lot of games will be played with numbers to show the border being secure when it likely won’t be.
Another issue is every time any type of amnesty is even discussed more illegals flood in hoping for the amnesty.
Incompetanto thought the border was secure when she was Gov of AZ and the minutemen were patrolling because too many illegals were getting across.
When Napolitano talks about illegal aliens amnesty, she never talks about the narcotrafficantes in their midst. The drugs and trade are brought by the illegals into our midst, along with the violence and criminal behavior that goes along with the trade. They ignore the crime in Washington. That’s because they benefit from it financially. Here in Houston, the police have been corrupted, with some employed to escort the big drug shipments safely through the city and onward to northern destinations. It is big money, and the cartel guys shoot each other up around here all the time. Plus they shake down legal immigrants with protection racket. My yard man in Houston is from Mexico: he pays protection to the Zetas so they leave his family alone down there.
No giving illegals the vote regardless.
That’s odd. Just three months ago the State Dept was warning Americans to stay from certain danger zones in the US bordering Mexico.
