    NAFTA! What does it have in common with drug trafficking and illegal immigration? Last night it was made all to obnoxiously clear to me and everybody else who watched the very revealing National Geographic cable channel. Its made blatantly obvious that--FREE TRADE--from Mexico, is more important than the protection of the population of the United States by our own politicians. Each day thousands of 18 wheelers cross the border, to the gargantuan profit the owners of large American corporations with products manufactured the other side of the border. But amongst that "Free Trade" is hidden large quantities of every conceivable narcotic, that the majority slips undetected past our undermanned, underfunded border. The border fence is an absolute parody when Homeland Security Secretary Napolitano tells the nation that the border is far more secure? That's yet another joke thats on citizens, expressly the Americans who live in the border region.

    Communications is limited to Sheriffs and police enforcement, DEA, the US border Patrol because their is no single designated frequency and never have enough men-women. THIS IS THE TIME WE MUST INSIST ON EVERY BORDER STATE, PICKETING ARMED NATIONAL GUARD, TO REINFORCE THE US BORDER PATROL. This is an absolute fabrication, because the TV documentary showed the tracks of drug smugglers called (Mules) hiking across millions of acres of desert and open range. One farmer, exposed to the viewer the miles of a three-stranded, rusted barbed wire, shallow river crossings and the hundreds of tracks of illegal aliens crossing into his land. The politicians can pretend that the border between us and them is sealed, but it is not a practical joke to the ranchers. They explain they cannot leave their homes, unless they are armed and has been this way for ten years or more.

    Its a literary a horror story of homes ransacked, cattle fences cut and piles of human garbage left behind. Everybody has a price, which includes the environmentalists who remain quiet to trash left in the desert. The whole truth resonated throughout the majority of the independent media, when a elderly Rancher, a humanitarian was slain for some obscure reason. Found dead slumped across his ATV, the investigators followed the footprints back to the border line and suspect drug traffickers? Just a month ago Homeland Security resources were cut that included further construction of the fence. The lies have reflected back on the politicians pushing for another outrageous mass Amnesty, as the separating fence between Mexico and the US, should have been 2 barriers. NOT ONE? With security patrolling tracks in the middle. But instead we got a fence that doesn't exist in many places, where drug pedestrians and illegal aliens can slip through with ease. Some illegal aliens enter our sovereign nation to work, but millions find its simple to get free hand-outs from Liberal run state assemblies.

    It's all to easy to fool the man -women in the street, who have never viewed the FENCE? Just like E-Verify that rejects illegal nationals from the workforce or the local police enforcement program 287 (g) It's like a repeat performance to inform the public that the people they voted in to office are working for their interest, when in fact they are pandering to a corrupt foreign government or the open border organizations. The list is long, but they are headed by Sen. Reid, Sen. McCain, Speaker pelosi, Sen. Graham, Sen. Schumer as all are involved as an advocacy of illegal immigration.

    DeMell is correct in some of his comments, however the idea that Immigration Reform during an economic recession is a bad idea being accepted as universally true is a reflection of how easily the masses are duped by right-wing nutso ideas.

    Let us not forget at the height of our economic prosperity during the Bush administration there was effectively almost NO UNEMPLOYMENT. Concurrently we had the highest number of illegal aliens in our nations history within our workforce.

    It is intellectually disingenuous to suggest Americans compete with Aliens for jobs when we know that with full employment there is more than sufficient room in our economy for migrants.

    Why not point out that subsequent to the Federal Government showering Billions on the Private Prison Industry we saw a virtual collapse of the US Economy?
