President Obama can reform immigration and stimulate the economy -- build a border fence



The Senate’s so called “gang of eight” had reached a bi partisan agreement on reforming our immigration system.  But the key to this bi partisan support was to seal our borders first, before we implement any steps to legality for the millions of illegals among us. But President Obama says our borders are already secure and there is no need to address border security first.

But the senators thought the border security proviso was logical, since what country has no control of it’s borders? What good will it do to reform our immigration system if thousands can cross our borders daily with impunity…We don’t even know who these people are.

President Obama says that our borders are more secure now than ever. Is that true?

US citizens that live along our southern border vehemently reject that notion. They point out the garbage strewn illegal crossing points, the damage done to private property, the violence and the worn trails that point to high traffic. 

These are regular high traffic corridors used by drug and human traffickers routinely crossing our southern border.  They funnel in huge quantities of drugs and the human mules used to carry these drugs across the borders. Some of these points are run with military precision. See Border No Country for Old Men

These desolate border crossing areas encompass thousands of square miles and federal border personnel are stretched thin, unable to staunch the flow of humans and drugs flowing into our country.

President Obama, is technically correct in one respect, the inflow of illegals is down right now because the US economy is in the tank, not because of increased border enforcement.  

 Even the Presidents own border patrol agents have brought suit against him for what they claim are policies that prevent them from protecting our borders. They claim his executive orders are a violation of the constitution. See Godfather Politics border patrol suing Obama

But if an immigration amnesty deal is inked before the borders are secured, look for a massive influx of illegals taking advantage of any pathway to US citizenship.

If President Obama is serious about reforming our immigration laws and making our country more secure as a result, he should do what is best for our country and approve the building of a fence along our southern border......and make sure there are enough personnel to make it secure.

Instead of rebuilding foreign countries with billions of our tax dollars, we should take those dollars and use them to protect our borders.  A border fence would be a stimulus for our economy, create thousands of jobs in the construction industry, and help staunch the flow of drugs.

Lets don’t put the cart before the horse; secure our borers first before there is any talk of reforming immigration, or pathways to legality.  Without securing our borders first, the rest of immigration reform is a farce.
