BORDER WALLS


A blogger friend living along the Mexican border recently ask me, why we have a wall on the southern but not the northern border?   I did not have an immediate response, and have yet to answer until now.

Border walls and illegal immigration go together like soup and a sandwich.    Can you be opposed to the existence of the wall and at the same time favor enforcing immigration laws?    I do believe in enforcing laws against illegals.   I am not opposed to immigration, done lawfully.   I do not want criminal gangs walking across the border into the U.S.    Its difficult avoiding contradictory comments or opinions, even a having it both ways attitude, but I will try.

I don’t like the wall(s), I don’t know anyone that really does, other than for its purpose.   The wall certainly doesn’t add any landscaping beauty, they are ugly.

Just the sight of the wall is symbolic, with a different meaning from each side, on one it is a keep out sign on the other some security.  Does the wall represent the character of those it is meant to keep out or those it is meant to protect, or both?   It may be a double-edged sword.

The wall does without saying, keep most of those that would like to enter the U.S. illegally……. out, apparently until now.    What the walls don’t do is solve our differences.    Not only does the existence of the wall further divide the U.S. from Mexico and the rest of South America, they now create division among ourselves.   We are a  divided nation, especially when it comes to immigration.   The division is only growing wider.

There is no point bringing up the in a perfect world scenario, I’ll leave that for my dreams.   There will always be undesirables we want to keep out, not have to deal with.   I don’t have all the answers for the ideal situation………….no need for the wall.   If people didn’t break the laws, there would be no need for a wall.    I was going to keep the perfect world scenario out, but I also said I would try not to double talk; its difficult.  It’s a difficult problem.    I also have avoided answering why there is no northern wall.

I guess Canada could have built a wall when Americans of draft age were fleeing north to avoid Vietnam in protest of the war and the draft.   I can’t put this on Canada though, they too are having immigration issues but not as grave as the U.S.    I haven’t heard of much interest in South Americans wanting to migrate to Canada.

So, why a southern wall and no northern?   I’m not researching this on Google, this wasn’t meant to be answered that way, its more about getting a feel for the attitude and personality of a nation type of question.    It is a good question and to be honest, not one I had thought of until my new friend presented it to me.   The simple answer would be, I’m not in charge of that, so I don’t know.   He has me thinking, searching for an answer.

It is a difficult question to answer, even possibly without offending someone.   Maybe history plays a part…….our history with Mexico….wounds are passed on through generations, trusts that are lost may never be regained.  Do we stereotype a certain people and remain prejudice?  I’m still searching here……..do we just say our doors have been open to you long enough, we can’t take anymore and a wall slams the door in our Southern neighbor’s face.   While up north, there is no wall.    Canadians can enter the U.S. and pretty much go unnoticed, therefore free from stereotyping.   In my life time I have witnessed very little poor relations with Canada.   Also, you do not see a large wave of Canadians coming to America to stay, like we do the Southern border.    To most Americans I would say the North does not appear to be a social threat as does the South; and I know that is stereotyping to certain degree maybe more than I want to admit.  I also know, Mexican gangs and the cartel shooting at border agents, doesn’t help.

I have tried to answer, from just what I know; maybe I am learning I don’t know very much about our borders, the North and South.   Hopefully, someday a better solution comes our way.

 

 

COUNTER PROTESTERS MAY GET MORE THAN THEY WANT

Murrietta counter protesters, not so bright.  They would like to see the cartel come across the border and blast the racists whites.   First of all morons, if you think you are going to come into this country and intimidate our people with threatening remarks it could prove to be very dangerous and costly for you and your precious cartel.    Americans are on the edge as it is and are beginning to take things into their own hands, as they have grown impatient with the government.

There is a legal system of entering this country, and you are not here legally, therefore you have no rights and that includes a counter protest.  Playing the race card?  Do your homework, not all those protesting against illegal immigration are white.

The 3 punks in the photo above are wearing some sort of uniform with their nation’s flag on one shirt.  Really?  Wanting to come to our nation but you wear the flag of a nation that is so terrible you want to leave or are you only here to support those children that are coming across.  I noticed as well, one of you hides his face, much like a terrorist.  Are you also a member of the cartel,  the uniform dress indicates you may be?   You see, you are exactly what the good people of Murrietta are trying to keep out of their community.

I get it there is a humanitarian issue here.  The influx of immigrants is a difficult situation, especially with the children.  They are coming here, because their families they leave behind know Americans are the most compassionate and  the quality of life here is better than anywhere.  However, we must protect our borders and the interior of this nation.

Disease is spreading at the border, some of which we have not been vaccinated against in this country.   The diseases will continue to spread; which brings up another problem, they will receive healthcare, free healthcare for them.    Are the illegal immigrants going to get fined for not having an insurance policy under Obamacare?  Nope, we the taxpaying citizens of this country will be expected to flip the bill.

Also, those that have come here from Central America and Mexico have left a trail of where they have trashed the land.  Don’t believe me, go on the internet and see for yourself, plenty of pictures; a preview of whats to come for this country.

It’s too much for even the most generous nation to take on.  We are talking about protecting our nation for the future of our children and grandchildren.   I know we are a nation of immigrants, but there are limits……we have met our limit.    We don’t need to always be politically correct.

 

MEXICAN DRUG CARTELS ARE TERRORISTS


Mexican drug cartels, any drug cartel should be considered terrorists.  So, why doesn’t our government treat them as terrorists cells?   It is known that al Qaeda has mixed with the cartel.

Louie Gohmert, R-Tyler, said on C-SPAN’s “Washington Journal” April 17, 2013: “We know al Qaeda has camps over with the drug cartels on the other side of the Mexican border. We know that people are now being trained to come in and act like Hispanic when they’re radical Islamists. We know these things are happening and… it’s just insane not to protect ourselves.”

I recently did a reblog on a story about the Mexican Drug Cartel with scouts having crossed our border, carrying guns.  We are more aggressive chasing terrorists in the Middle East than at our own border.   This is just insane as Rep. Gohmert stated.

If al Qaeda terrorists are infiltrating within drug cartel camps, they are likely training the members in terrorists activity/acts as well.  Even if the cartel stood on their own, they are terrorists.   They murder, traffic their drugs across our border and involved in crimes.  The crime that follows drug trafficking, often violent and the destructive effect of drugs on our young is terror.

Some argue that it isn’t terrorists activity because it isn’t politically motivated.   Since when has terror had to be politically motivated?  9/11 was about hatred.   I would argue the drug cartel is politically motivated regardless, they would love to see our political system continue to fall apart,  it makes their mission easier.

The Mexican Drug Cartel is a terrorist cell and must be treated as such.
