    Only 1,000,000 got in illegally!


    The editorial board of the Washington Post has said that apprehensions of illegal aliens along our southern border have been reduced to such a low level that Republicans can declare victory and move on to granting amnesty to 11 million illegals.

    According to the Post, apprehensions are down to about 350,000 for the fiscal year that ends Sept. 30. Arizona Senator John McCain says the U.S. Border Patrol catches about one in four. So, for the year ending on Friday, 1,400,000 people tried to cross the border illegally and 350,000 were stopped. That leaves 1,050,000 who made it. To say this is success is outrageous.

    And, if we did declare success and grant amnesty to (at least) 11 million, what would the open borders crowd that runs DHS do? Stop enforcing the border, that's what.

    What the article just said is outrageous. How can they even estimate how many got through? How do you figure that?:cuckoo:

    Securing US Border 'Impossible'...
    :eek:
    Amidst promises to secure nation's border in presidential race, some say it's impossible
    December 7, 2011 — Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich have promised to complete a nearly 1,950-mile fence. Michele Bachmann wants a double fence. Ron Paul pledges to secure the nation's southern border by any means necessary, and Rick Perry says he can secure it without a fence — and do so within a year of taking office as president.
