    I really don't want to outlive anyone, but my great-grandmother on my father's side lived to 105 and I'm 71 now, so I figure that I might have 34 more years if I'm mighty lucky.

On top of this we have unsavory characters from Mexico's drug cartels, and human smugglers coming through because they know they CAN.


    And yet our border remains porous-with some claiming a secure border is racist, intolerant, a waste of time , etc. Drugs, and people can get through-and terrorists will exploit that as much as human smugglers and drug traffickers, I believe. We know terrorists HAVE gotten through-and its one reason why Homeland Security is on edge right now, expecting more attacks.

    It was the SPLC who refused to label the Avenue Gang as a hate group because the SPLC said they weren't political. After more than a decade of defending the Avenue Gang the SPLC finally did label the Avenue Gang as a hate group, but they cringed when they did. There are six other Latino gangs in the L.A. metro area who also target blacks.
    The avenues are a part of east la, they often name themselves after the avenues they live and operate around. Not good guys.

Therefore, based on the evidence, it is notong but fear mongering put out inorder to fufill an agenda.
    Do you have locks on your homes doors? People can get in other ways, so why bother?

    First, "open border" kind of says there is only one, and the map doesn't even acknowledge the Canadian border, which with Alaska is about six times as long as Mexico.

    Two, the only terrorist ever known to try to make in from a neighboring country was the LAX bomber who was arrested by a border guard while leaving a ferry that had just come in from Victoria BC.

    I suspect the difference is that Canadians do not have an overwhelming desire to live there and, unlike Mexicans have not been invited.

    But I find it strange that immediately after 911 there was a hue and cry in the States as to the fact they had come from Canada and there were others....but now we are forgotten.

    Canadians deeply resent any minority not being included and as one I demand we be put on the list of suspicion along with those pampered Mexicans
    Didn't intend to imply that Canada's border is not also an issue, but its more controlled, and Canada itself has some capacity to regulate who enters it. Certainly thats an issue as well.

    edit-didn't realize it was 6 times the length of Mexico's.

    Flooding the nation with socialist-friendly masses to strain our system, while encouraging a portal of entry for terrorists seems like 2 birds with one stone, eh?

    Also why are American terrorists excluded from this question?
    Our intelligence is notoriously late to the game. The door is still wide open.

    And another thing-by having less to worry about at the borders, our federal law enforcement could spend more time dealing with terror threats.

    Lots of reasons anyone and their grandma shouldn't be able to walk in here as they please-but this is certainly good enough.
