Presidente Vincente Fox is part of the problem, not part of the solution:
(UPI): Mexican President Vicente Fox has denounced border walls the United States is building to stem illegal immigrants, the Washington Post reports. "No country that is proud of itself should build walls ... it doesn't make any sense," Fox told a Mexico City news conference. "We are convinced that walls don't work." He said it was impossible for Mexico to post military or police patrols along the entire border to prevent crossings. "We can't keep them against their will by force," he said. Last month, the U.S. Congress voted to waive environmental regulations and allow completion of a fence along the border south of San Diego. Fox made the remark in advance of next week's meeting with President Bush and Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin in Crawford, Texas, where immigration issues will figure prominently.
Just as Israel had a right to build a wall to keep terrorists OUT, so does the USA. I'D EVEN GO FURTHER: I'd put in LANDMINES along the border; I'd publicize t, and make sure everyone in Mexico KNEW that randomly - in many MANY locations along the border, there are yards and yards of deadly LANDMINES. That'll sure send the right message: "ENTER ILLEGALLY AT YOUR OWN REAL RISK; A RISK OF LOSING LIFE OR LIMB!"
THAT PROBABLY SOUNDS TOO TOUGH, AND TOO CALLOUS FOR YOU BLEEDING-HEART LIBS.
Maybe, but the first and highest responsibility our government has is to protect the homeland. We had to sdo that with a nuclear arsenal during the Cold War, and it's why we're developing NMD, now. And why we should construct a REAL BARRIER and a true physical disincentive to ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION, ASAP!
