I don't know why the media continues to drop the ball on immigration. Illegal entry into this country is a threat to national security, and it has very little to do with Mexicans, or those leaving their homes in Central America to seek residency here in the US.
The real threat here, involves the usual suspects, Al Qaeda, ISIS or any affiliated Islamic extremist group, in pursuit of jihad and destruction of anything non Muslim. I have to imagine, that it is not hard for terrorists to enter Mexico via one of their airports. Mexico doesn't have a no fly terrorist watch list that I know of. Nor do they have, what I would call adequate security, airport or otherwise. Our border is a long red carpet for any terrorist organization that wants access to our country to carry out an attack.
The real issue that the talking heads on cable news should be debating, is the danger that a porous border poses, to a country that is a prime target for terrorist attacks. Just yesterday, a truck in Mexico that was transporting radioactive material(iridium-192) was stolen, and is still missing. This causes one to pause, and consider for a moment that moving nuclear material across our southern border would be not be much of a challenge. Moving people into the country to carry out attacks would also be accomplished with ease(Rio Grande). Tell me why we have a terrorist no fly list for airports when we have an open southern border? Those looking to inflict harm on America will take the path of least resistance, especially if that path almost assures that there will be no questions asked, and no interference by Federal authorities.
My demand for the so called media, is to start pounding this into peoples' heads! It is not about Mexico, or Central America, or even the children that the Obama administration likes to use as political pawns. This is about our security here, at home, in a post 9/11 America. One last thought, why are we subject to humiliating searches, groping, and heckling by the TSA in order to get on a plane, but someone that speaks no English, can walk across our southern border at any time, any reason, at will. That is the question that needs to be thrown at Obama and his cronies. Transparency, remember?
