    Yes.

    Our National Guard should not be deployed outside the U.S. but retained for circumstances like Israelizing the Southern Border.

    It will take but one outrageously deadly terrorist attack emanating from that area for us to bring the iron fist down, so, I think it'd be a great thing to protect ourselves from a well-known vulnerability.

    No, I live 2.5 hours from the border and journey into Mexico frequently, by car and plane.

    We don't need thousands of troops standing around in the desert to stop people who want to work as orange pickers and busboys.

    If we are going to spend that money, how about we spend it making Mexico a first world country where the workers stay?

    Better get ready for your $8.50 gallon of orange juice and too expensive lettuce though...

    Every time we try to do a Bracero program, all the politicians stand up and say "they are taking our jobs!"

    Because every American wants to stoop down and earn 50 bucks a day picking cabbage in the hot sun...

    What people fail to realize with our fail borders, is guess who else "sneaks" in? Terrorist.

    Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano told Congress last week that terrorists intending to harm the American people enter the U.S. from Mexico “from time to time." - See more at: Napolitano: Terrorists Enter U.S. from Mexico
    There are plenty of sleeper cells that have been set up in America because of this.

    We have more than 11 million people who have illegally entered our country and decided to stay. At what point does it become an invasion?
