IF WE SECURED THE BORDER Since we are not going to do anything about the 20 million that is here. Not go after businesses that hire illegal aliens, securing the border will stop illegal immigration, stop drug and human smuggling and stop re-entry of criminal illegal aliens that have been deported. We can secure the border if we wanted to but who wants to and who will is the problem. All candidates pledge to secure the border but when in office they do nothing. Obama say the border is secure than ever and deportation are at a historical high but is not enough. The border has to be secured if it has to be closed temporary to get the full effect. We are spending billions trying to secure Afghanistan and Iraq and our own country is not secure and being terrorized. Something is serious wrong with this picture. MS-13 is growing because most of them deported just return because our border is not secure. Present plan of securing the border is not working because although crossing is down, there is still a steady flow north. If one get passed border patrols that is one too many.
