    I agree. That border is one of the biggest jokes in the country. It's about time we started taking desperate measures. Electric fences and "shoot to kill" orders come to mind, although I'd settle for rubber bullets.

    Right, closing the border with Mexico is really going to help? The answer seems to be bit simpler and doable. There is now a major effort to infiltrate these groups with Arab speaking and looking plants like was done with white Aryan clans in America.

    The technology has also changed dramatically with which to listen, read and interpret their plans long before they carry them out.

    Imagine for a minute that some terrorists were able to carry out another major attack in the USA killing thousands more like 09/11. Do you think Mr. Bush would go to France or the UN for advice and World Court at the Hague cooperation?

    Would Mr. Bush sit on his hands or wring them wondering what John Kerry would do next? To maintain credibility, once the suiciders were verifiably identified do you think that Mr. Bush would hesitate using our large non-nuclear technology to destroy the country of origin. Even if that country was Saudi Arabia?

    It is something to think about.

    That border has more holes than a seive. I'm all for legal immigration, but if a bunch of uneducated migrant workers (not to belittle them) making a bum rush for the nearest paying job can get across the border, how much easier will it be for well-trained terrorists trying to dot all the i's and cross all the t's. It's not the only problem, for sure, but it is a problem.

    Both parties need the Hispanic vote--don't expect any big changes on the border.

    If Bush wins again, then he has nothing to lose by enforcing the border, and a follow-up president would assassinate his career if he opened it back up.

    You may have to consult the World Court at the Hague before you consider closing the very long border between Mexico and America. Not to mention the unguarded border between Canada and the USA. Or the entire ungaurded east and west coasts of the United States.

    No I think that America is now alert since 09/11 and has the ability to stop terrorists from our own homeland. There is the same possibility of stopping terrorists from entering our borders as there is preventing the tide from rising with a sand shovel...

    Sorry, No Sale. If we truly wanted to seal the borders of this country, it could be done in a very very short amount of time. Problem is, not 1 spineless politician has the balls to do it. God forbid they alienate the Hispanic vote or some other PC nonsense...............

    Why should we have to close our border in a democratic society?
