A piranha filled moat would be cost-effective deterrent
It’s no secret illegal immigration is a major problem in the United States. It is a devastating reality in Arizona where the sieve-like border provides a portal for a seemingly unending flood of illegal aliens, drugs and crime.
While chaos reigned on the U.S./Mexico border, former Arizona governor Janet Napolitano became notorious for her derisive 2005 quip, “You show me a 50-foot wall and I’ll show you a 51-foot ladder at the border. That’s the way the border works.”
In 2008 we were told a virtual fence was to be a technological advancement that would provide an alternative to “divisive” walls and federal agents policing the Arizona-Mexico border. The multimillion dollar project was a virtual flop and was ultimately scrapped.
Then in 2011 Obama stood at the Texas/Mexico border and declared Republicans will “never be satisfied” (video) by the amount of border protection he claimed to have put in place, although the border is more dangerous than ever. “Maybe they’ll need a moat,“ Obama mocked. “Maybe they’ll want alligators in the moat. They’ll never be satisfied.”
2014 saw the orchestrated deluge of over 90,000 illegal children —- mostly Central American and Mexican —- into the United States.
We now read that approximately 39,000 more unaccompanied minors are expected to enter the U.S. in another surge of illegal Central American children. Their parents believe they will be given amnesty via Obama’s unilateral executive orders and be the conduits for the absurdity known as chain migration for other family members.
The often used and obviously erroneous number of invaders of our sovereign nation has been given as 11 million for years. They keep coming. The number is not static. Immigration Counters aggregates from the latest government and private sources, analyzes trending data and provides a more accurate count of the staggering influx —- many from terror-sponsoring countries around the globe.
The 2016 election cycle is just around the corner. The illegal invasion should be a paramount consideration as you select your candidates. Attend forums. Ask office holders and office seekers the hard questions. Don’t equivocate or allow them to bluff their answers. Accept no double talk or finessing of these critical and costly issues. American citizens are entitled to a secure homeland. Silence is acquiescence.
The future of our nation is at stake.
