Are we going to 'cede' the land back to mexico?? Yes there's the desperate people, but 1000's of people per day crossing over, let's say 400 of them are fighting age males. That turns into a battallion every month.
They want a better life, they can :
a - Start a revolution in their own country to depose the scumbags down there
b - Go through the legal process of immigration
I have NO problems with people of any race, color creed... I don't mind people visiting, I'm absolutely color blind in that sense. I DO have a problem with people that come here illegally, don't pay taxes but enjoy the services. End of Story.
Now when you have people SHOOTING AT and KILLING americans and they are coming in 1000's per day... that's an INVASION, of ILLEGAL immigrants... frankly, by Obama NOT dealing with this complete disregard for the sovereignty of this country... I almost think that borders on TREASONOUS activity, certainly IMPEACHABLE in that he's acting negligently on the subject.
I know that there'd be consequences... BUT, wars are MEANT to be against people INVADING your country... NOT off in some distant land because you're trying to get resources.I don't know what the answer is... but if you wanna send marines to the border to play Rambo, you better be ready for all the consequences...
How many people signed up to kill women and children in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, soon to be Iran, etc.??? How many people signed up to guard opium fields in Afghanistan so that 'taliban doesn't get the profits' (forgetting that it was the TALIBAN that ended poppy production in 2001)??
Now, in that sense I'm ignorant somewhat, I was under the impression that you signed up to serve, not necessarily to choose your tasks??
That said, if I didn't know that I would end up in Iraq or Afghanistan or Iran I would actually sign up to get that border into check.
Now... since we all seem to agree that the feds aren't going to do anything about this aside from amnesty (or some amnesty light, since I apparently grossly exaggerate what's wanted), why doesn't he SHERIFF's in these affected country round up the millitia's and say listen "you guys are my deputees while we clean out the scum from this park and send the mexicans back to mexico, whether they like it or not." They are still allowed to do that, right?
When does it end??
