Let’s go back in time shall we? Build a wall on the southern border of the United States. People were up in arms. Most of the people against the building the wall were not and are not now, living in a border state let alone right on the US – Mexico border.
Yet with their infinite wisdom, ill informed “facts”, and mightier than thou attitudes, these people and all their stopped closing down the border. No one ever intended for the border to be complete closed, incurring self isolation. Yet that is what many political heavy weights want us to believe. They are exaggerating the ideas and proposals to the public, knowing the majority of the public do not know or will take the time to find out the real facts. Closing the border was to help eliminate, curtail the entrance of unauthorized crossings not at stationed border crossings.
Keep in mind, “political correctness” aside, “new “rule of thumb” projected by the political majority “there are no illegal aliens, they are undocumented aliens” aside, the facts are the facts. If a person is here without proper paperwork or following due process, they are here against the law. Therefore, they are illegally hence the term “illegal alien”. If it walks like a duck, sounds like a duck…. Illegal is illegal, call it what it is rather than changing the term or phrase, trying to minimize the emotions stirred by using tougher sounding words. Politicians need to stop hiding behind words and tell it like it is; these people are illegals. PERIOD.
My opinion then and is the same today, we have Air Force, Army, Marines, Navy and National Guard to protect us; put them on the border. Protect us.
With all the side stepping, false information, twisted facts and partial truths, there has not been a push or urgency to provide adequate protection or enforcement stopping people from crossing the border illegally. Now time is of the urgency. ISIS has communicate via social networks, it is a good time to use the southwest border of the US to enter the country unnoticed.
It’s not to late to push a plan and execute the plan to protect our country!
Be informed, know the facts, tell Congress to act now!
