    Nobody has ever broken into my home or stolen my car. Therefore I should not lock the doors.

    Yeah, and the Northern Border isn't solid either, nor is our power grid or infrastructure, among other things.

    No, you shouldn't lock your doors if nobody has ever broken into any home or stolen any car. You guard against things that actually happen. Terrorists crossing into this country from Mexico isn't something that actually happens.

    We, you and I, we couldn't do anything about it even if we wanted to. It's out of our hands and we have to live with the consequences of the decisions our elected representatives make, or don't make.

    It falls under National Security so the default choice is to Don't Say Anything. Not saying it wouldn't or couldn't get leaked, but word on Infiltration is few and far in-between which is evidenced by none of the top U.S. Media Companies running an Infiltration story even after I sent several e-mails with the C-SPAN video itself & the transcript of what the DNI had said.

    If something happens, I already know who I'm pointing my finger at.

    MS-13 aka Mara Salvatruchas are all illegal aliens who illegally crossed our southern border except for those MS-13 gang members who Obama has allowed to cross our border just in the past few month by giving them a court date. I doubt any will show up, MS-13 says "Obama is the man."

    Where ever MS-13 is found in America's neighborhoods, people live in terror.
