And this is news?

This points out that our Southern border situation is out of control. Mexico’s military and police forces are, at best, compromised. Over the last half-century we have witnessed one of the largest mass-migrations in human history. We have not seriously examined the issues. I find it ironic that those who favor more governmental controls in our society push for immigration anarchy. Meanwhile, our young Marine languishes in a Mexican prison.

The present immigration anarchy is precisely an aspect of governmental control, or at least the control of this administration, which wants this to happen.


#5

Perhaps anyone chiding Congress for not passing comprehensive immigration reform, including select Bishops, can see why a bill that doesn’t begin with securing the border is a non-starter, and one not to be considered seriously by anyone who actually cares.

If I woke up tomorrow to discover that I had been elected Grand Poobah of the U.S. (kind of like a dictator who can do whatever he wants, but nice), I would militarize the southern border before lunch. I agree that we need some kind of compassionate, reasonable immigration reform. But until we secure the border and get a handle on who is already here illegally, not one more person would get across.

Not to anybody who’s been following the issue and/or living on the border for the past couple of decades…
