a Nation - The Battle to Secure America's Borders
Dec. 4, 2004
T. J. Bonner: Today as we sit here, and every other day, ten thousand,
that's thousand, ten thousand illegal aliens will cross our border.
The United States Border Patrol will catch about three thousand
of those people. That means that every year the Border Patrol
catches about a million people. Last year (2004) there was a
twenty-five percent bump that can be attributed to president
Bush's offer of amnesty. [...]
Think about it. If an impoverished, uneducated
Mexican can come wandering across the border unchallenged, consider
how much easier it is for a well-financed, well-trained terrorist
to do the exact same thing.
