“Mostly Harmless” that is the entry for Earth in the Hitch-Hikers Guide to the Galaxy, and that seems to be the attitude of allot of folks about the flood of Illegal Aliens into our nation. Granted most of these border jumpers are only looking to better their lives by indulging in this illegal act, and would not commit any other crime in the time they spend in the US. That does not change the fact that in the act of illegal entry into the USofA, these criminals start their new life on a deceitful note and the wrong foot, also in so doing they chip away at the veneer of Governmental Authority to control our border.
It is not Harmless in any sense of the word, there is real harm being felt by our fellow citizens everyday because the fools in Washington D.C. want to make border security a political club. Nations of the world must get a good laugh at our citizen’s flailing about… looking, hoping, even praying that someone in Authority will take responsibility for this mess, and start cleaning house. Our fellow countrymen/women in Phoenix AZ, are dealing with the second highest Kidnapping rate in the world, second only to Mexico City. Mexican Military personnel and vehicles have been found operating on the US side of the border on many occasions. Ranchers all along the border deal with free ranging groups of Illegal’s trespassing on their land at all hours and some are even getting killed by these “poor souls“.
This can not continue… A nation that does not control it’s borders will fall eventually. If not from invasion, then from lack of respect from her own citizenry. I know I am right on the hairy edge of calling it Game Over for our current system.
