Border security now -- not mañana

Since the federal government proposes phasing in its new passport policy by 2008 -- and since it is designed to further secure our borders after 9/11 -- why wasn't it proposed on 9/12? Or in 1999?

Well said.


Peole spend all this time damning the country about loose borders then cry because they have to have a damn passport.

All good ideas you suggest but I suspect that this isn't the site to discuss your ideas in any detail as any participants might just get the boot for making constructive suggestions. One wouldn't want to offend the sensibilities of some of the FrOBL's around here.

As long as people can discuss ideas without trying to stomp on the Presidents head in every other post, FR will be an excellect forum to determine how to control the illegal immigration.

There is enough brains here to send a man to the moon, we should be able to determine how to build a fence on our other American citizens private property that borders with Mexico.

A thread that leaves the country leaders names out of it and stays on topic should be constructive. Don't take the bait when a FROBL throws it at you. Walk on by.

Which fence would you rather cross if you were sneaking past the Border patrol?

Construct the fence. Maybe claim imminent domain for private property. I am not a lawyer. You would think most people with property along the border wouldn't´t mind a fence, then again maybe they have reasons for not wanting it.

Howdy sonali,

Pleased to make your acquaintance.

Please explain something to me. All South Americans and some islanders are lumped in together, as being "Hispanic". I note that you do not use that reference to yourself, but use the word latino. I believed that hispanic refered to Spanish speaking rather then race. Is that true? Also; is the "Hispanic" reference used in South America??

I really think that commercials work the best. I know they are expensive.

If a person could get all the anti immigration folks an organizations to come together under one roof an donate to doing this it might work. One thing about commericals, you can show them any time of the day. I really believe that would get the message out better than any other way.

Take every thing off the tapes, people have all taken, from garbage to every thing else an condense it into a couple different commericals.
