We can stop some people from coming across the border by stopping welfare. We can almost put a total stop of illegal immigration by keeping illegals from gaining any form of employment… even the under the table type.
Of course, there are those who cross the border with all kinds of diseases. The kids attend out schools and expose our children to such things as anti-bionic resistant TB and who knows what else. Indeed, there might be a few diseases we don’t yet know about. That in itself sounds like a good reason to build a wall.
Then there are all the drugs that are brought over the border. It is true that some of it comes in through ports of entry, but the vast majority bypasses the scrutiny the border guards there. It only stands to reason. Why sneak the stuff through the border stations when they can just go a few miles to the side and drive the stuff over, virtually unhindered.
However, my greatest fear is that one person or group of people that bring a weapon of mass destruction into the country. One nuclear weapon in L. A. would be more than disastrous. There are over ten million in Los Angeles and Orange County area, more than in the city of New York. There is a huge Navy Base in San Diego, just a few miles north of the border. Do we really want to leave our guard down as we did at Perl Harbor?
Do you think 9-11 was bad? If someone sets off a nuclear weapon in San Diego or Los Angeles, even if it is a small one, it will make the attack in New York seem like small potatoes.
Do we always need to learn the lessons by firsthand experience? Do we always have to wait until after the attack to find out we are vulnerable? My best guess is that if we wait, it will be too late. I don’t think we will be able to recover.
The bad part is that we won’t be able to retaliate. We won’t know who was behind it. I guess we just just have to retaliate against everyone. Then, as they say, there won’t be anything left but the cockroaches.
The truth of the matter is that Pelosi and cohorts know the dangers of leaving the border open. The fact is that it is more than political. It is about the power. They want to control the country. They want to control the world and they want to control everyone in it.
It is as old as civilization. There have always been those who seem to control others. There have always been those who want to be king of the world. The Greeks and Romans used swords. Hitler used guns. The dummycrats use promises. They promise us everything and then they take all our freedom.
In this case, it just might backfire on them. If someone plants a nuclear bomb in Chicago, they just might want to run for the border and keep running Venezuela. Then again, they might want to run to Cuba. My guess is that they would be welcomed there with opened arms.
On the other hand, they would have to give up all the power they accumulated. They just might have to work for a living.
