Shootings on the Mexican-American border are becoming more common. Some believe that if illegal aliens and their anchor babies could be shot and killed for trying to cross the border, illegal crossings could be cut sharply from 3,000-8,000 per day. The cost per year to the American Taxpayer for criminal illegal aliens and their anchor babies is $113,000,000,000 a year. This post has been up for less than 24 hours, and I have had 3 people approve and give me rep, and 2 people take it away. All I have done is ask a question. Ignore the messenger, and think about the question. Be honest with your thoughts and emotions. I believe that an adult is not afraid to ask the tough questions. I have not even offered my opinion, but I will give it now. I really don't know what to think. Which by the way is why I created this thread. There could not be a better forum to deal with this issue than here. Please follow USMB rules. Thank you. "The Border Patrol should shoot to kill illegal aliens who try to cross into the U. S?"
