Certain news outlets would lead you to believe nothing is being done, that we are becoming more and more lenient and over looking immigration enforcement - but as I drive up and down the 15 every day, I see border patrol cars all over the place, parked on the side of the freeway, pulling certain cars over. Its a little intimidating because how do they know which cars to pull over? But I trust they have their sources, and they seem to be doing a fantastic job cutting down on illegals.


I wish you Border Patrol had more resources to do even more, and stop the flow of drugs into the United States.

You think for a second if all these illegals leaned Republican that the liberal Dems would be pushing for amnesty like they are now? Fat chance. The only reason they have such friends in Washington is because they are potential democratic votes, AND, they can be put on WIC, Welfare, Food Stamps, Dependent AID and Assistance, SSDI, State Disability, Obama phones, you name it. The Dems in Washington are pushing these entitlements so they can get them to vote Dem to keep that gravy train rolling. If that doesn't tell you anything, nothing will because you just don't care to begin with. As soon as these people learn they can vote themselves goodies and money, our republic is lost. Maybe forever. Any political party that will put itself ahead of the citizen has been corrupted from how it should be, of the people, for the people, by the people. The problem people just don't get about big government is that you have no control. None. That's why federal government is supposed to be small and everything not assigned to it by the constitution should be handled at the state, or local level. See, you can actually go down to the local city hall, or county seat and have your voice heard in person. Even at the the state level you can do that. You have WAY WAY WAY more control over state and local government. The Feds know that. They don't like that. That's why they want all the control. They know you can't just up and drive to the capitol building, the white house, so you have almost no say. What say you do have, through writing your congressman or senator is simply ignored because they know you can't do squat about it anyway. That's why the tenth amendment is so important, but if you don't know it, or don't care about it, then you get the government you deserve, just like Europe in the 1930's. Get a grip, get informed, go vote to save your country, and to help out the Border Patrol.

We have a president who is supposed to enforce the law but instead picks and chooses which laws apply to him and his administration and which do not. One thing's sure, if the majority of illegal aliens voted for Republicans, he'd be busing every last one of them out of the country as fast as he possibly could, regardless of the cost.

As a democrat, I am always happy when meth is taken off the street. It doesn't really matter if it was a Mexican or a white person who was caught. You'd have to be stupid to think that Mexicans are the only people who smuggle/sell drugs.

Michael. Using your logic, Oblamo is a genius. It s a fair statement to say mexicans, drugs and crime go together like beens and franks. KFI already ID the inividual.

But Obozo wants those illegal alien votes and we suffer.

A country that does not uphold their own laws will fall to those that do.
