Barack Obama Signs Southwest Border Security Bill

 

On Friday U.S. president Barack Obama put his seal on the Southwest Border Security Bill, which could be a move towards "comprehensive immigration reform". At least this is what Homeland Security Janet Napolitano said after the signing of the bill.

The measure provides $600 million, which will be spent to secure the U.S.-Mexican border. It is supposed to strengthen "federal border protection, law enforcement, and counter-narcotics activities".

The Senate has already approved of the border bill on a voice vote. "We want to make sure that the border itself and that -- that 2,000-mile expanse is safe and secure," Napolitano said.

Could you do us all a favor and substantiate your claim with a few slivers of evidence?

Save the 600 million. I could secure the border with 500 volunteers and some rifles.

Wow, you have no idea of the lengths of border involved, do you?

It´s a pretty big border, you might want a few more, level headed people.

@everyone:

Can someone explain to me why immigration is such a problem. Not the drugs we can stop that when ever but it´s not like were out of land or something.

Actually I do, it´s somewhere in the area of about 2000 miles.

But, if there were 500 snipers scattered across the border with orders to shoot on site, would you roll the dice? lol

  When is Mexico going to step up  
 
And do something to prevent this mass exodus?
As far as this situation goes, the people who continue to suffer are the impovershed, the people who are at the bottom who are polarized by Mexico and US. They can´t survive in Mexico and have no where to go! Mexico sits back on its ass and keeps drugs illegal for some stupid ass egotisitical reason to be superman on its "save the world" bs.
the US blind , completely blind to its own activity that super stimulates the drug trade...and the two countries want what? people just to sit back and do nothing? Live in choas in Mexico or in live in fear in the US? This whole "drug war" is a front to get more money for really doing nothing. Yeah they may stop a fish or two , but the river is still rushing.

Then people think its just that its a force issue, not enough weapons? This border security will do nothing except create higher demand, more blood, more ammo. In the proccess devastate immigrants escaping a exploited country.

Drug consumption is my personal liberty, not the governments decision. Why should they have exclusive right over how I want to think?


I´m sort of all over the place withthis post , but border politics are as well, they have to do with many things .

Because of the US. Not because they want to be superman, & besides superman could give a flying fk about drugs.

easy, time and time again this clown from keynia has made promice after promice aqnd been caught in lie after lie. one of the latest is his promice to arizonia gov which he has not done anything. in actions are the proof. signing a piece of paper means nothing but show to get votes.

better do some research on land loss. about 2500 acres have been taken over in arizonia, a park area, that is now posted as an un safe area to enter because of illegals looting and a lake that borders with mexico where there are "pirates" stopping boaters and robbing them then back to teh mexican side to hide!.

  @Ec5618 What a Illusion  
 
quote:Wow, you have no idea of the lengths of border involved, do you?

Sometimes people fail to engage their brain before they put their mouth *hand* in gear!

$600 million border security bill that pays for 1,000 new Border Patrol agents.

I don´t get it. What the hell is the matter with people? Why can´t they see what a great thing Obama is doing? Why can´t they see how focused and dedicated our President is on securing our border and passing border reform. What more could you ask for unless of course he appoints children to the post instead. At least they have enough intelligence to realize 1000 new border patrol agents is the equivalent of one man per every two miles which amounts to spending 600 million on nothing but an illusion.
I think rippler2k3 solution would be more effective as a deterrent. I don´t think I would roll the dice myself.
But I think the better solution would be hit the companies that hire illegals with hefty fines and or loss of their business license,this would cause a ripple effect and these people would go back home where they belong. Then we can deal with the Drug smugglers and border security on a level it should be instead of wasting our man power on millions coming in to seek work and drain our economy even further then it is being drained by our own. We should stop giving them welfare, schooling and health care. Treat them like the criminals they are. We should also change our law " If you have a child in this country and both parents are illegal, your child is illegal too. If one is a US citizen, then the child is a citizen also and the illegal one has to leave. Once this approach to border reform goes into effect we will have enough manpower to secure our borders, How hard can it be if we place landmines along the border like they do to secure Embassy´s around the world.
Most of these people are hard working and want to better their life but the bottom line is, even though I feel bad for them as I do for a lot of other people around the world, we need to take care of our own first. OH!! we do have people that will do the work Americans won´t do, We can have a welfare reform. If there is nothing wrong with you and can work, you will work and if not there will be a deduction from your monthly hand out, whatever the job would pay. If they choose to work we can supplement them through welfare the difference the job doesn´t pay so they can relieve the same amount of money per month they are accustom to when they were getting the free hand out.

This bill is nothing more then a tactic to get gullible people who want our borders secure to vote his way come Nov and to help his agenda on border reform (amnesty) to be pushed forward. I believe (I Hope) most Americans are smart enough to see through the BS like they were when he sent the Guards to (OBSERVE) the border in a pathetic attempt to pull the wool over the eyes of Americans with 20/20 vision about border protection.
Lets be real, one man every two mile isn´t going to change anything.

Just an awakening on how large our boarder is and how much more effective rippler2k3 simple solution would be when in comparison to Obama´s plan.
Nothing personal and it isn´t a rant it is simply a point of view. It surely was not written in a violent nor loud way, just stating my view in more then three words.
