Why is everybody complaining about the Border?? We can NEVER seal the Border, and we never will. If we were to actually have REAL Border Protection and successfully Seal the Border and make it virtually impossible to cross without going through a checkpoint, This would End the War on Drugs overnight.
We know that over 90% of all “Controlled Substances” comes into the US from Mexico, in fact we have a Federally Protected Smuggling Zone going right through Arizona, with signs warning Us Citizens they should not be there.
Who is going to be the one to FIRE 3/4 of the Police,Judges,prosecutors,lawyers,DEA...., in the US, We would have Shutdown over Half the Courts across this country, What will these people do for Work?? The War on Drugs is all they know.
Asset Forfeiture Laws would be useless and literally Starve the Government of ill gotten funds. SWAT teams would no longer be able to Break into Innocent Citizens Homes at night and Shoot their Dogs. What about all those ancillary businesses? Rehab Centers?? What would Hollywood Do without the free flow of Drugs?? There is a rather large percentage of people that work in and around the War on Drugs. What will they do??
We CANNOT HAVE A WAR ON DRUGS WITHOUT DRUGS. Got it! We will NEVER have anything remotely close to effective Border Security, it just Cannot be done without Destroying the Very Livelyhood of Millions of PUBLIC EMPLOYEE UNION MEMBERS. Which means it CANNOT HAPPEN. EVER.
You make fine points. No rational person/group could argue against. Do you see a rational solution?
