WHAT WILL IT TAKE TO SECURE THE BORDER And how long will it take. As long as I can remember and before, and I am 72 and raised in Eloy, Arizona, Pinal County, illegal aliens have been crossing the border and some carrying drugs that got American addicted and destroyed lives. Mexico did not care then because it did not affect Mexico. Had it not been for drugs crossing the southern border we would not have the addiction now and now that is is affecting Mexico they care. Mexico got Americans addicted on drugs and not the addiction that cause the escalation of drug smuggling as Calderone want to place the blame. In the early 50s I saw my neighbor cook and inject himself with drugs brought across the border by illegal aliens. He is clean not and so is his brother and they are both over 75 years old. Now it has spread across the nation leaving a trail of destruction. No one cared and no one really cares now. The border is not secure because no one in Government want is secure. Like Lawrence ODonnell say. We need the border open so immigrants can enter. B.B.S.
