The Washington Times just did a story focused on the increase of terrorist entry into the U S through our porous border.

It has bee
n a long winded arguement that our unguarded and under-funded patrols have left the door wide open for just about any group to smuggle people, guns and drugs in to the States from Mexico.

The only tired rhetoric we hear from the amnesty/open borders advocates is that everyone is racist and xenophobic. Now, with the press finally catching up with reality and actually reporting on the killing spree and drug trafficing, we hear less about their imagined assumption. I wonder why?

It's become known that the Iranian-
backed Lebanese group Hezbollah has been smuggling drugs and people into the U.S. using the same methods of the Mexican cartels.

The Times reports: Hezbollah has long been involved in narcotics and human trafficking in South America, and is now using the same routes into the U.S. They rely on the same shadow facilitators. One way or another, they are all connected.

You have read past posts here where I advocated for the border fence and an increase in border patrols. Some of you w
onder why anyone in the northeast would care. Well, the strain on our healthcare system, our already diminished job opportunities and the potential threat to our security through terrorist means should be enough.

This has finally escalated to a point where no-one can ignore the threat anymore.
The cross-border flow of guns, drugs and people has intensified since the U.S. reduced access to the country by air and water following the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

However, our last administration felt the influx of cheap labor from the south would help the corporate backers that put President Bush in office. I have no excuses for the Democrats that followed suit.

The drug wars between the cartels has destabilized the Mexican government and, as one member of Obama's team quoted: Mexico is a failed state. This has prompted Obama to send additional agents to the border. Will this emergency measure allow the fence installation to continue?

According to that same article
: Adm. James Stavridis, commander of U.S. Southern Command, recently told a House committee that the connection between drug traffickers and “Islamic radical terrorism” is a growing threat to the U.S.

And a senior U.S. defense official said that in addition to Hezbollah,
al-Qaida could also use the Mexican cartels’ trafficking routes to smuggle operatives into the U.S.

Finish the fence, implement the E-Verify system and require all landlords to insure legal status of their Tenants. France and the Netherlands, two of the most liberal countries in the world, have entry standards that make us look like chumps. It's time we tried to secure the border and the well being of those who already reside here.

I have seen your other posts on this and have to say you are consistent. A bit odd for a liberal dem to advocate for stricter laws on anything, but maybe it's just a stereotype.
The real question you didnt answer is if Obama would ramp up the border patrols ability to stop illegal crossing as an additional benefit to this recent drug/gun issue. There are many more articles trying to explain the same question.

This is where you line up with Gillibrand very well. She has always supported a secure border. Yes she has eased up on the illegal issue, but we like her history.

Some pressure needs to be put on the state of California and its cities to more strongly enforce illegal immigration laws.

On the illegal immigration and amnesty issue, we really didn't have much of a choice in Presidential candidates. McCain was so pro-hispanic slavery, it wasn't funny. Obama just caters to the hispanic vote. So we had to look at other platform issues to base our vote on.
