Is Border Security Topic Verboten?
Power structure not interested in solutions
|Arizona Republic -- Phoenix -- January 4
McCain, Flake lead way on immigration-reform proposal
Arizona's Republican Sens. John McCain and Jeff Flake are poised to lead the way on immigration reform this year. McCain and Flake, a former six-term U.S. representative, were both previously known as high-profile supporters of proposals for a guest-worker program and a pathway to legal status for illegal immigrants already in the country.
However, in recent years, under pressure from enforcement advocates, they had pivoted to take a position that would postpone actions on those reforms until the U.S.-Mexican border was sufficiently secured.
American Patrol Report Comment
American Border Patrol is a non-profit Arizona corporation. It has worked for ten years to find a solution to the border problem. It has demonstrated technology that will do just that. Despite this, the only Arizona newspaper to cover this important story is the Sierra Vista Herald Review.
Glenn Spencer, head of ABP, recently invited Ted Robbins of NPR to interview him --- as he did ten years ago. He has yet to receive an answer.
Why is the power structure so reluctant to investigate a way to secure the border? Could it be that it doesn't want the border secured?

My line in the sand is drawn here!
If Barack Obama and his gaggle of gun grabbers have their way, the American citizenry will have all of their firearms taken away. If their current attempt to outlaw semi-automatic rifles is successful, does anyone think it will stop there? Don't be naïve! The goal of people like Barack Obama, Dianne Feinstein, Charles Schumer, et al., has always been total gun confiscation. In fact, Senator Feinstein is actually on record as saying so...
