DRUG REALTED CRIMES AND DEATHS. Drug related crimes and deaths are just one more reason to close our borders by any means necessary ( fences, mines, military and like Obama said, alligators) and stop the flow of drugs. What is more important than saving Americans lives or not offending Mexico? Drugs entering this country is the cause of many American deaths. Either overdose or crimes. And not to mentions lives destroyed. These are the things Obama & Company never talk about. They want us to believe deaths are only occurring on the border in Mexico. Some of the most dangerous gangs, MS13, main purpose is dealing in drugs and they should be rounded up and deported no matter the cost. If the flow of drugs were stopped at the border, Americans would not be able to get them and use them and gangs would not be able to deal them. Closing our borders will put gangs and drug cartels out of business in this country and they will move away from the border and take their business elsewhere and cut the crime and deaths of Americans due to drugs. Mexico wins and we wins. I read somewhere that we are losing the war against drugs. Poppy fields in Afghanistan is financing Al Qaeda and the Taliban because we are afraid of offending the growers. We cannot see the forest for the trees and cut off our nose to spite our face. If Obama does nothing in the next few years, he need to close the border (not add more lanes at ports of entry the make it faster to enter) and bring our troops home. Most of the drugs are coming through ports of entry in trucks and not on the backs of illegal aliens. I agree. Obama is a threat to America. But he is just one of many who came before him who have ignored the problem of illegal drugs and illegal immigration. Mexico is not our neighbor and its time we recognize that.
