    President Obama has committed a substantial amount of resources to securing the Mexican border.

    Obama to beef up Mexico border policy - CNN.com



    Man, sounds like a really comprehensive plan to secure the border. Exactly what people have been screaming for on this issue.

    Cue the chorus of "blindly hate Obama, blindly hate Obama, he's doing exaclty what we asked for but blindly hate Obama"

    Foot soldiers for either party's ideology are just that until they start to evaluate for themselves.

    The Prophet's stated intentions about the border are a simple matter of doing what he supposed to be doing, and, satisfying a highly restless public with something else to think about.

    We shall see how serious he really is. Under the circumstances he can use a misdirection so he may end up being quite serious. Frankly, I do not even trust the junior senator with this or anything else serious. As is said in the Army, the most dangerous thing is a second lieutantant with a screw driver.

    I got no clue, Willow. I'm thinking the idea is to help the Mexicans control/contain the crime before it crosses our borders.

    I think the increased number of immigration officials in mexico is an attempt to encourage more people to take the legal route instead of the sneaking accross route. I have met several people that came from mexico, legally and illegally. All of them say that there is a "backlog" in the legal process to get into the US legally. If you reduce the number of people that come illegally by increasing the number that come legally, there will be less people trying to cross the border for the authorities on both sides to deal with.
    When I lived near Sierra Vista, every night the desert was alive with people, like a busy city park. When the border patrol would get too hot on their trail they would set fires for a distraction.
    Drive down and check for yourself. It is simply amazing how many footprints are in what looks like an empty desert. You will have to get out of the car and walk around to see them though.
