No, not our southern border with Mexico, but MEXICO’S southern border:
Obama administration and Mexican government officials recently discussed creating a three-tier security system designed to protect Mexico’s southern border from drug and human traffickers, according to U.S. officials.
The border control plan calls for U.S. funding and technical support of three security lines extending more than 100 miles north of Mexico’s border with Guatemala and Belize. The border security system would use sensors and intelligence-gathering to counter human trafficking and drug running from the region, a major source of illegal immigration into the United States.
Meanwhile the U.S. border with Mexico (where the real problem lies) remains unprotected and uncared for by the Obama Administration and Congress. How can they possibly claim to care about our own border situation when they do nothing to actually secure the border, and instead, talk with Mexico about fixing their problems? The simple fact of the matter is that the U.S. should not even be considering giving money to help Mexico with their border security, especially when we have so many of our own (and similar) problems to deal with here.
To parody Ronald Reagan; Mr. Obama, don’t build this wall (figuratively speaking of course).
