Anyone else agree that this is the last straw?

Film crews from Al-Jazeera are in the United States making a documentary on how easy it is to get across the border. The documentary will be aired on Arabic television.

A reporter asked to get an interview with the Minutemen at the Arizona border, and they declined.

I'm pretty sure this is even more ridiculous than President Fox of Mexico creating brouchers on how to cross the border and evade the U.S. border patrol.

For those who think peace is possible.....I'm going to have to disagree.

Crossing the border into the U.S. is pretty effortless.

Not exactly what I call late-breaking news.

IMO its not as easy as people think. While I don't think it is super hard, I do believe that there is more being done than what people see. I recently had a conversation with a family friend who was in the marines in the early 90s and operated out of 29 palms. He was attached to a unit that would do out and camp on the mountain tops for a week or so at a time and spot people coming across the border. Mainly they were watching for drug dealers but I'm sure their mission has changed of late. He said they didn't engage them or anything but they did direct the border patrol to bust them.

Like I said, I don't think the border is all that secure but I wouldn't doubt that there is a lot of watching going on. And I don't mean for illegal aliens.

I just don't think I have been this pissed in a while. First time I'd heard of it was today DevilDog. We are at freaking war with terrorist, and they want to do a documentary on how easy it is to cross the border.

Have you also heard about the wave of Muslim clerics able to come in the country on religious visas?

They are preaching hate and violence, and there's not a freaking thing we can do about it.

Good ol America. We just make everything easy for them. If it were up to me as soon as I heard them preaching hate they would be gone.

I'm pretty sure the Demoncats of this country won't do anything good for this war, or our borders. Democrats like Janet Napolitano, the governer of AZ, set up water stations in the southern AZ desert so that the border jumpers have enough water to stay alive long enough to make it to Tucson or Yuma. That way, once they're there, they can get work visas and eventually citizenship. Then they'll turn around and vote for Janet because she's the one that let them in. People like her are in our government. Where's good ole Strom when we need him?

Democrats, Democrats, Democrats.....change the damn record already. Democrats haven't caused anything to happen in this country for 5 years now. If blaming them makes you feel better then go for it. But it ain't helping anything. It's all Dubya's show and you know it. Are you so brainwashed you really can't see that?

And 281R, it's your boy that want's to give em more "immigrant freedom" and fix em up with a drivers license. That way they can work more in his buddy's factory, and drive thier wives to the hospital to have another kid courtesy of me...and you.

If it were up to me we would have locked down the borders on 9/12/01 and not relax em yet, if ever. Everytime their checking my shoes so I can get on a plane I'm thinking "Habib is probably having his first burrito and checking his b*mb wiring diagrams in Larado...Texas!!!
Homeland So-called Security is about as useful to me as freeing a bunch of "oppressed" towelheads or looking for weapons that we know ain't there. Whichever reason you chose to be sold on.

Democrats my ass!!! Own up, be accountable. Quit your whining and fix some shit!

I'm not so sure any particular party is at fault. I love Dubya, but he has done NOTHING about our border issues, or illegal immigration. I am really dissapointed in the way the whole thing has/hasn't been dealt with. I agree we should have shut down both the northern and southern borders. I don't give a shit if the line is 5 miles long to get in or not. It might be another reason they won't want to come over here.

I think blaming one man (the prez) responisible for everything and not the whole governing body seems a little more brain washed to me. I guess you disagree? Again, didnt Kerry vote for the Iraq war again? He's your boy isnt he?

1. He's not my boy, he is my prez. Do you have a prez? Or is your allegance to someone else like maybe france? BTW, bush has flaws like any prez... And I dont agree with his aproach to illegals. But it seems to me that most of washington dosnt care either from the lack of silence. I've only heard a few speak out but where is the progress?

Yes, yes, we know your a democrat, and thats why your continuing to loose elections, because just like you said, you cant get anything done and all you do is point the finger but yet offer nothing new to the table. YEAH!! GO DEMS!!!

Stand by or fight while Obama wages his war against capitalism...

Just like you right. I'm sure you're doing everything you can right? The problem with Democrats is they sit and write their columns and do their interviews about how us being in the middle east is wrong, and how they don't support the war, etc. What the hell good have they done for this country? Nothing. And the ones who have served in the military, like ole boy Kerry, come back here and bitch about what a discgrace our military is. This coming from someone who got silver stars and purple harts for doing things like saving people from drowning that knew how to swim. There's a lot of honor there.
