Thank you midnite.
I whole-heartedly agree. However, Mexico HAS advocated illegal immigration with their creation of pamphlets to aid the illegal's crossing. They have refused to assist us on the border to eliminate the violence from drug cartels and rogue army soldiers. Who is to say whether those Mexican soldiers are under orders to shoot at US Border Patrol or not.
We need to allow our Border Patrol to shoot back with BIGGER weaponry. No more putting our Patrol agents in jail for defending this nation from Mexican drug runners.
This is an invasion. This is their way of taking over our country without officially firing a shot or declaring war. They want our lands and our resources and our economy. They greatly depend upon us to fuel and feed their people back home even.
I say it is time to stop this. I say we stop NAFTA and any other monetary measures we have with Mexico, until they agree to stop their people from illegally crossing into our country. Of course, this also means we have to do something on our side as well. And you know as well as I, that that is not going to happen for at least another 4-5 years no matter who wins the presidency this term.
Our Legislature has continually sold us out to the lowest bidder and undermined our national sovereignty. They have proved time and time again that they will do anything to promote illegal immigration through their creation of amnesty programs. There have been at least a half-dozen amnesty programs enacted by Congress and signed by Presidents. What lunacy is this?
When it takes longer and longer for people who want to come here legally, what lunacy is this that gives a free pass and no consequences amnesty to people who broke our laws to get here. And in many cases, continually break the laws on a daily basis.
If you are sick and tired of illegal immigration, then do something about it, ya'll. Vote for people who will enforce our immigration laws. Vote for people who will not allow illegals to have more rights than legal citizens. Vote for people who will not promise amnesty programs. Vote for people who will actively prosecute businesses who employ illegals. Vote for national legislators who will block all aid to Mexico until they begin to respect out national sovereignty.
