Amnesty Equals Jobs Aplenty

by: the Common Constitutionalist


Great news! For those who haven’t yet heard, there appears yet another added benefit to passing the Senate illegal immigrant amnesty act. The benefits just keep piling up.


You may be skeptical now, but after you conservative racists hear the news – even you will support the real Republicans that just want to get things done.


For they, not us understand that just saying no isn’t good policy. After all, if the Democrats propose some ridiculous legislation that the country has survived without for 200+ years – Republicans can’t just say no. That would be ridiculous. We must always propose an “alternative”.


Like when my 14-year-old son says, “Dad, can I borrow your car?” I can’t just say no. That would be insensitive, and not good familial policy.


Anyway, back to the great news.


ABC news/Univision recently reported that if the amnesty bill is enacted, “it would add nearly 14,000 new jobs on average in each congressional district” in the nation.


Wow! I can honestly say I did not know that. Why didn’t Rubio, Ryan, Jeb Bush and Karl Rove just tell us that in the first place?


Let’s see: that’s 14,000 jobs times 435 congressional districts. That equals 1.7 gazillion new jobs! Actually, it is 6,090,000 jobs. That’s still pretty awesome. Where do I sign? Better yet, I’ll just call my Sen. Kelly Ayotte (Judd Gregg in a dress) and let her know – full speed ahead!


The ABC news report continued: “no district would see fewer than 7000 jobs created by 2023.” This is impressive – if you believe it.


Let’s say we do trust their figures. By the way, the figures were compiled by the “American Action Network”. Surprise – a Karl Rove Consortium.


So let’s run the numbers shall we?


The numbers are 14,000 (maximum) per district – 7000 minimum. Let’s split the difference at 10,500 jobs. Pretty big number, eh?


10,500 jobs per district times 435 districts equals 4,567,500. Whoa, that’s a lot of jobs. But wait, we’re not done.


It’s 2013 now. They say we’ll see these results by 2023. That’s 10 years. So 4,567,500 divided by 10 years equals 456,750 jobs created nationwide per year.


Now the jobs numbers are released every month so: 456,750 jobs divided by 12 months equals 38,062.5 jobs added nationwide per month. The .5 must be a midget – oops, little person – oops, vertically challenged. Sorry. Couldn’t resist.


So even assuming the numbers are accurate, it no longer looks so impressive, does it?


Quick recap: they want us to agree to legalize a minimum of 11 million illegals immediately to gain 38,000 phantom jobs a month. It’s the most absurd argument I’ve heard yet.


Are the experts compiling this magical data the same geniuses that can’t even accurately predict the employment numbers next month, much less a year or 10 years out?


One would have to be a complete moron to buy any of this crap! The pro-amnesty crowd is desperate, plain and simple. They know an overwhelming majority of voters are against it. They are trying to pull out any lie they have to to try to sell this smelly pile of manure.


This is one fight we are winning and can win if we just keep up the pressure.

Illegals Will Pay Their Fair Share

by: the Common Constitutionalist


Boy would I like to speak about something other than immigration, but it is the hot topic and it’s one of my major hot button issues. My friends don’t bring it up any longer for fear of… “Don’t get him started” 

It just really angers me that so many are feeding us such crap and asking us to believe them and trust that they will do the right thing for our country.

Take the whole “learning English” lie. All the advocates including Ryan and Rubio say learning the English language will be a requirement toward the “pathway to citizenship”. That’s a lie and they must know it.

First, it’s already part of current immigration policy and we see how well it’s being followed now. Second, they say illegals must demonstrate their knowledge of English. What will they have to do to accomplish this? Will they have to master the English language? Will they just have to demonstrate a rudimentary understanding of our language? Nope. They merely have to sign up for class. Check that. They merely have to claim that they signed up. No one is going to check.

Well, the illegals will still have to pay a fine. So how much is the fine? It must be punitive, right? Well according to the conservative sage Karl Rove, the fine will be a whopping $1000, payable over six years or about $14 a month. Whoa, step back!

If I recall, didn’t Rubio say we would build the border fence with all that fine money rolling in? 14 bucks would go a long way toward that.

But wait, as if that punitive fine wasn’t enough punishment, the illegals will have to pay back taxes. Now we’re talkin. After a decade or more “in the shadows” they’ll have to pay what we are owed. And who better to determine what they owe than the IRS.

Well, the illegals will have to pay what the IRS assesses they must according to the “Internal Revenue Code”, unless of course they just happened to be paid under the table or using a fake or stolen Social Security number. If that’s the case the IRS can’t assess or determine what they owe so I guess they just won’t have to pay anything. But remember, they still have to pay that huge fine hanging over them.

I wonder if they’ll be able to use their new EBT (food stamp) card to pay the fine? Just asking.

But despite all the nonsense, they will at least have to go to the back of the line behind those who played by the rules. Boy, I’ll bet those law-abiding rubes feel pretty foolish, eh?

Well, as Rush Limbaugh has repeatedly said, how long will it be before camera shy Chucky Schumer holds a presser pleading for the poor illegals, that in good faith came “out of the shadows” just to be saddled with debt and thrust to the back of the bus? It’s just not fair that these poor immigrants should be treated this way. They should be granted citizenship immediately.

I guarantee that speech had been written long ago, sitting in his desk, just waiting for the opportunity to trot it out. I would bet he’d be out in not more than 24 to 48 hours after the bill was signed into law.

Maybe it’s high time the liars are brought out of the shadows and into the light.

Ryan v Levin on Immigration


by: the Common Constitutionalist

Paul Ryan was on Mark Levin’s show on Tuesday discussing immigration. You know, the same Paul Ryan that with his tag team partner Marco Rubio, have been pushing for a “comprehensive immigration” bill. I’ll give him props for his courage at least.

Levin told Ryan that some new immigration numbers were just-released. He said that new CBO estimates are that the Senate bill will only reduce illegal immigration by 25%. Ryan responded by saying that the House will not focus or discuss the Senate bill and will only focus on their own bill.

Ryan said that “this problem” has to be dealt with. The “problem” being illegals but would not say the words illegal alien or illegal. He called them undocumented workers.

Ryan continued saying that we had a law in 1986 and it didn’t work nor did the ‘96 or 2006 laws. Ryan claimed, as Levin laughed out loud, that they in Congress want to get it right this time.

Naturally Mark asked him: “Why should we trust you [guys]?” Ryan said that this time they would have “real metrics” that would have to be met to secure the border. Not just DHS’s promise. He said the GAO would make the determination of border security. He then went on to explain the metrics that must be met regarding the undocumented workers.

Levin asked: “What if the illegal doesn’t meet your requirements. Are you going to deport them?” Ryan’s answer: “Yeah, then they are deportable, that’s the whole point.” Levin interrupted rather emphatically by saying that they’re not going to be deported!

Notice that Ryan said they are deportable, not that they would be deported. One has to listen very carefully as politicians throw out these code words.

Levin added that the president is in charge of who is deported and he simply won’t do it no matter what Congress insists on.

And of course Levin is correct. That’s why this argument is so specious. It sounds like tough talk but that’s all it is. I’m reminded of the Bumble Snow Monster that looked scary but was harmless after his teeth were removed.

Ryan’s response was if you write a law and they break the law, they are deportable. It can’t be fought or adjudicated. Huh? They already broke the law just getting here. What the heck do they care if they break another?

Could someone as intelligent as Paul Ryan really be this naïve, or is it something else?

Ryan then asked Levin: “Do you believe we will find 11 million or more people, round them up and kick them out?” Levin’s answer: “no, under this administration we won’t round up a half million people.” Ryan said that no administration could do that, even if they tried.

Frankly, how would we know? We’ve never tried. And I beg to differ. You won’t get them all, but you can get 70% within a few months time with the will and a few thousand agents. I live on the outskirts of a northeastern city. It’s a small city but a city nonetheless. I guarantee, you give me 1000 agents and a few days and I could find 75% of all illegals in my city. Why? Because they all settled in about 10-block area downtown and I’ll bet every city is the same. That’s why! 

All of what Ryan continued to promote was in the 1986 amnesty bill. Levin pointed this out to Ryan. Ryan didn’t really acknowledge it. He continued to drone on about metrics that have to be met regarding security and legal status of the undocumented workers. It didn’t convince Mark and it didn’t convince me.

Look, the bottom line is that all the metrics, the rules and new laws are not going to solve the illegal problem. We have been debating this current problem for over 25 years.

If they, Congress, were serious, they would simply state that we can live with our current situation for another year or two. Therefore Congress’s proposal should be to secure the border…period. Each border State would then verify to its security. When that is completed, we can revisit the rest. It’s that simple and that’s why it will never be done. It’s not “comprehensive” enough!

Immigration Law…Then and Now

by: the Common Constitutionalist


Who hasn’t heard the new pro-immigration ads? It seems like they’re playing on every news-radio station, all day. The group “Americans for a Conservative Direction” brings the ads to air. It is a lobbying group put together by Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, who is definitely not a conservative. The southern RINO Haley Barbour is also involved.

The ads posit the notion, put forth by Republicans Marco Rubio and Paul Ryan, that the current immigration system is de facto amnesty. They neglect to mention that the current system bears no resemblance to and follows virtually none of the thousands of immigration laws already on the books.

Rubio and Ryan take turns promoting the new 1000 page “comprehensive” bill, saying: “Let’s secure the border.” But that’s not what is in the bill. It says that DHS shall submit a plan to the secure the border – that’s it.

In the ad both senators claim: “they’ll undergo background checks, start paying taxes, won’t qualify for federal benefits, pay a fine, learn English and no amnesty.” They claim that if illegals do all this they will then go to the end of the immigration line.

All lies or half-truths.

And what if they don’t do all those things? Will we deport them Marco? Will we send them home Paul? Of course not.

So no matter what they say, in actuality, between 11 and 20 million illegals will become legal. Litigation will see to that. Mark my words.

Don’t believe me? Okay, let’s take a ride back to 1986 and examine IRCA, the Immigration Reform and Control Act.

This failed law allowed amnesty for in excess of 2.7 million illegals (a fraction of todays). It greatly contributed to the downfall of California with over 40% of all illegals ending up in California and Texas. Texas as we know, is far more conservative than is California, thus it has been spared the same fate.

But did IRCA accomplish what the liars in 1986 claim it would do? Did they shut down the border and end or greatly decrease illegal immigration? Nope – none of the above – as any thinking person would guess.

According to a study done by the Cato Institute: “IRCA did not achieve its goal of reducing illegal inflows and the size of the undocumented population. Illegal immigration quickly resumed growing and legal immigration increased because the families of legalization beneficiaries immigrated.” (chain migration)

The study added that stricter enforcement has had little actual deterrent effect. But of course, we all know there is no “stricter” border security. There is virtually no border security at all.

They (Cato) warned of the potential burden of legalizing so many unskilled immigrants. Almost half of all adult illegals had not even a high school education and they comprised 22% of all non-high school graduates.

As we conservatives all know today and was expressed after passage of the 1986 law, “the number of immigrants far exceeded expectations”. Big surprise!

Newly legalized women were found to have left the workforce. Why? They suddenly became eligible for far more government giveaway programs.

The study added that the new adult citizens could then sponsor relatives; their parents, children, married children and their spouses, and so on and so on. 11 million immigrants my foot. Try double or triple.

And all those new arrivals will of course be taking advantage of the freebies we so generously offer. How stupid are we?

They concluded that having an amnesty can create the expectation of additional future amnesties which encourage continued illegal inflows. Another shocker.

So what have we learned from the debacle of 1986? Evidently, absolutely nothing. Check that. We’ve learned that politics and elections trump the nation’s security and our ever-dwindling resources. Oh… and common sense. We’ve also learned that whatever the era, politicians lie.

An Irishman’s American Dream

from: Young Patriots

Written by a legal immigrant:

I’m a citizen of Ireland and have been attempting to get a green card for over 9 years.

Once again, America faces the popular discussion of immigration – trying to find the best way forward for America and its 11 million illegals.

One of the greatest conservatives of modern time, Mark Levin, had two great guests on tonight’s show – Jeff Sessions arguing against the current ideas, and Marco Rubio, who is part of the group of eight who are trying to come up with legislation to deal with this problem.

Because this is an issue that affects me greatly, I had to call in and I was very lucky to be able to discuss a few points with the Great One – Mr. Levin, himself. I personally have a massive problem with granting an illegal worker a permanent visa because America has laws and those laws need to be respected. The biggest issue, to me, is the fact that 11 million people will skip the line in front of people like me who have waited 9 years to get a visa… and still waiting. To put that number in perspective, the American government awards 50,000 DV visas every year. I could wait a lifetime and still never get to achieve my dream, but someone who has broken the law gets to live the dream every day.

While Rubio insists that we will all be on the same level, the law of possession will come into play. Does anyone really believe that the US government is going to deport someone illegal just so I can come into the country? That will never work.

The other issue I addressed on Levin’s show was the message conservatives need to communicate going forward. Republicans like John McCain keep saying Republicans need this reform to win another election. THEY ARE WRONG. Three little words will lead to a win: THE AMERICAN DREAM!

When was the last time you heard this mentioned? The country where if you worked hard, you could become anything you wanted and could achieve anything. No one could stop you or get in the way.

The answer to tyranny is not less tyranny – its Liberty and Freedom.

Reagan summed up my feelings about America perfectly in his “Time for Choosing” speech in 1964, where he told the story of a Cuban talking to two Americans, telling them everything he ran away from. The two Americans looked at each other and realized how lucky they were. But the Cuban insisted he was the lucky one because he had somewhere to run to…..

For me, while I don’t face the same oppression or anything like it, I still long for the American Dream and I hope and pray every day that I will get the chance to achieve it.

ICE vs. Big Sis

Federal Judge Rules that ICE Agents have Standing in Lawsuit Against Federal Government

By Anne Manetas from: NumbersUSA

Federal District Court Judge Reed O’Conner has ruled that 10 ICE agents and officers have standing to challenge in Federal court the so-called Morton Memo on prosecutorial discretion and the DREAM directive on deferred action. The agents filed their complaint in October, charging that unconstitutional and illegal directives from DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano and ICE Director John Morton order the agents to violate federal laws or face adverse employment actions. This is a major first step for the ICE agents in their case against the administration.In his 35-page decision, Judge O’Conner found that the ICE agents and officers have standing, but that the State of Mississippi does not. He has not yet ruled, however, on the agents’ motion for a preliminary injunction to halt implementation of the DHS directives.

The primary impetus for the lawsuit came last June, when Secretary Napolitano issued a memo offering deferred action and employment authorization to illegal aliens under age 31 who meet certain criteria similar to those outlined in the DREAM Act, which has failed to pass Congress on three occasions.

Even before that, though, ICE Director Morton essentially gutted immigration enforcement by issuing a memo on prosecutorial discretion that, in effect, prohibits ICE agents and officers from arresting or removing any but the most violent criminal aliens. Under Morton’s stated policy, most of the 12 million or so illegal aliens that the administration wants to legalize are currently safe from deportation.

This is just one of the reasons that the National Immigration and Customs Enforcement Council voted unanimously that they have no confidence in Morton’s ability to lead the agency. Aside from ordering ICE agents to not enforce federal immigration laws, Morton has also gutted worksite enforcement and the 287(g) program, which is a cooperative effort between local law enforcement and federal immigration agents.

Montana Cracks Down on Illegals

Northern State Cracking Down on Illegal Aliens

Separated by 1200 miles and bordering Canada, one would not think that the  state of Montana would have a problem with illegal aliens. However according to  the Federation of Americans for Immigration Reform, illegal aliens cost the  state of Montana about $32 million a year, which is the lowest of any state in  the nation. In today’s struggling economy $32 million is a big chunk of  change.

Since the federal government refuses to enforce all the immigration laws and  take action to protect the United States from the invasion of millions of  illegals, a number of states including Montana have found it necessary to take  action themselves.

A year ago LR  121, a measure to deny all state services to illegal aliens, was passed by a  79.5% approval of the voters. This would include all those covered under Pres.  Barack Obama’s illegal dream act which allowed 800,000 illegal aliens to remain  in the US illegally and obtain work permits, drivers’ licenses, and other state  benefits. Under LR 121 none of those illegals would be able to receive such  benefits from the state of Montana.

Citizenship for All

by: the Common Constitutionalist

So have we officially moved into a new American era; the era of gloves off, minority pandering?

According to our Speaker of the House, the Honorable John Boehner, one of the reasons the Republicans lost, Mitt Romney lost, is due to not speaking to all Americans.

Boehner was recently interviewed by the Queen of recycling, Diane Sawyer. In the interview she quoted Al Cárdenas saying the Republican Party has gotten, “two old, too white and to male”.

Boehner’s response was predictably milquetoast. “Well, I think what Republicans need to learn is how do we speak to all Americans. You know, not just the people who look like us and act like us, but how do we speak to all Americans.”

Yep, you read that correctly. Good old John Boehner, acting as the, go along to get along, moderate he is.

I guess that’s us. I’m two out of three anyway; too white and too male. Maybe I just need a tan a sex change.

As I see it, we as conservative outcasts, have two problems. They are illegal immigration and giveaways. (Racism is a given, so I’m not including it).

By now, we who haven’t tuned out yet, have started to hear the growing cacophony of cries from Republican “know-it-alls”, to be more inclusive.

Of course, by more inclusive they mean we must agree to a “Comprehensive Immigration Policy”.

Now, what exactly is “Comprehensive Immigration Policy”? Simply said, it is, let them all in and grant them instant citizenship, which gives them the right to vote (Democrat of course).

That’s fairly comprehensive, I’d say.

You might ask yourself why the Democrats are so hot to legalize all the illegals. Is it as they claim? Are they the true party of inclusion and the big tent? Are they actually just looking out for the poor and disenfranchised illegals?

I say we put it to the test and Rush Limbaugh has devised a perfect one. It’s genius, if I do say.

His idea is to have the Republicans compromise with the dems. This is what the moderates in our party want, is it not? Do they not want us to be Democrat light?

Yes, let us compromise, with one proviso. The Republicans, the party of no, will become the new party of yes.

This is Limbaugh’s proposal. The Republicans will allow all illegal aliens to become citizens of the United States immediately. That’s the yes part of the new Republican.

The proviso is that said “new citizens” will relinquish the right to vote for 25 years.

Why would we conservatives ever agree to such thing? Just think about it for a moment.

Think of why the dishonest, devious Democrats really want to legalize the criminal aliens. Is it their big hearts? Hell no! It’s the vote. That’s all it is and that’s all it’s ever been.

Hispanics increasingly vote Democrat, not for their solidarity regarding immigration, but for the freebies they know the Democrats will provide. Sorry if that sounds harsh, but it’s a fact.

Republicans think that Hispanics might come over from the Democrat side because of Latinos purported similarly strong family and religious values. They’d be wrong. It’s the welfare they are after, the free stuff.

For example, in California, US-born Hispanics use welfare programs at twice the rate of non-Hispanics. Nearly 7 out of 10 poor children are Hispanic.

With that statistic, do we really think they care about immigration? Of course not. They’re voting for a continuation an escalation of the welfare state.

And that is the reason why the Democrats provide the giveaways. It’s for votes, that’s it!

I learned a long time ago that when selling a product or an idea, one has to be unique, set yourself apart from the rest. You must also educate your customer, so he fully understands just what he’s buying and why he should jump ship and purchase from you.

None of these “voters” will leave the Democrats for the Republicans just because we go along. We are, in effect, just offering them a “me too” product.

So let’s develop some backbone and call them out for what they really are – vote pimps.

It’s time we went on the attack.

Put the Limbaugh immigration offer on the table and watch the Dems squirm and make any excuse possible not to agree with it. Let them, for once, have to show their hand.

Immigration Transformation

by: the Common Constitutionalist (special thanks to Mark Levin)

We are a nation of Immigrants. Of course, so is almost every other nation. So what?

That is the line and argument for a “Comprehensive Immigration” policy, is it not. This throwaway line comes not only from the left, but the right.

They say that even those who founded are nation were immigrants. Yours and my forefathers were immigrants. True enough. Again, so what?

One has to make a giant leap to arrive at the conclusion that there is therefore a moral equivalent between legal and illegal immigration. But the leap is made nonetheless.

Mark Levin reminds us to always go back and look at our founding documents for guidance. The answer is usually there. And of course it is. The Declaration of Independence states, “That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…”

Can anyone tell me who amongst the legally governed, other than our Dictator in chief, consented to defacto blanket amnesty for 1 million or so illegals by Obama’s decreed “deferred action”?

As an aside, bully for Governor Jan Brewer of Arizona for standing up to this tyrant.

The Declaration also gives a handy little solution to this dilemma. “That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.” That’s the crux of this upcoming election. We can take a big step toward the abolition of the current governing body this November.

The progressives, both left and right, tell us that today’s illegal immigrants are the moral equivalent to all other immigrants that came before. As Levin says, the illegal is portrayed as somehow being more virtuous than even American citizens. They are people of faith, hard working and strong in family values. Traits not shared with us citizens, apparently.

So how did we get here? What was the genesis of this upside down thinking?

It was 1965, during the Lyndon Johnson administration. Like his progressive predecessors, Johnson’s “Great Society” would fundamentally transform this nation, forever altering immigration policy in this country.

Johnson signed the Hart-Celler act in 1965. It was to be the beginning of the “new” immigration structure. Johnson claimed in his signing speech that, “When the earliest settlers poured into a wild continent there was no one to ask them where they came from. The only question was: Were they sturdy enough to make the journey, were they strong enough to clear the land, were they enduring enough to make a home for freedom, and were they brave enough to die for liberty if it became necessary to do so?” He neglected to add that we were not yet a nation with an elected government charged with protecting and defending our borders. But hey, what do I know.

He added, “This bill says simply that from this day forth those wishing to immigrate to America shall be admitted on the basis of their skills and their close relationship to those already here.”

Our old buddy the late senator Ted Kennedy added on the floor of the senate, that, “Our cities will not be flooded with a million immigrants annually.” He added, “The entire mix of this country will not be upset.”

He, of course, was either wrong or intentionally lying. I vote for the latter.

The 1965 act abolished national quotas in favor of what we call chain-migration. This gave preference to relatives of residents (family unification) over applicants with special skills.  Facts are facts and the facts are that since 1965, immigrants to the United States are poorer, less educated & less skilled, and those are the legal immigrants.

This liberalization of our immigration policy gave rise to an increase of illegal immigration.

Cesar Estrada Chavez was an American farm worker, labor leader, and civil rights activist who, with Dolores Huerta, co-founded the National Farm Workers Association, which later became the United Farm Workers. Believe me, he was no conservative.

In the sixties Chavez strongly opposed illegal immigration saying that it undermined his ability to unionize farm workers, improve conditions and wages for the American worker. The union would even report illegals to the feds. How far we’ve come in a short 47 years, eh?

In 1969, Chavez along with Walter Mondale (yes, that Walter Mondale) organized a march on the southern border protesting farmers’ use of illegals. Imagine that happening today. That’s progress, I guess.

Then there is the misuse of the 14th amendment to the Constitution, they always cite. It states, “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside…” The Statists (as Levin calls them) always neglect the, “and subject to the jurisdiction thereof” part of the amendment. The amendments purpose was to grant citizenship to the emancipated slaves, who were born here and owed sole allegiance to this country. The American Indians did not have the same right, due to their allegiance to tribal jurisdiction. They were excluded by the 14th amendment.

One cannot be conferred citizenship by their mere presence. Diplomats and other foreign visitors to this country who happen to give birth here are not granted automatic citizenship. Why? Because the parents aren’t subject to this country’s jurisdiction and owe no allegiance to the U.S. They, of course, are subject to the jurisdiction of their home country.

The illegal or even the legal immigration problem we have today can be summed up this way. Statists in the sixties are really no different than the ones that rule us today. Whether it is through healthcare or as this article documents, immigration, it’s always the same, the unending want to fundamental transform America.  They will bend and pervert the Constitution and rule of law however they need to, to accomplish it.

Robo – Patrol


The United States is not the only country with a border problem. Israel also has a problem with their border, but theirs has to do with neighbors who want nothing more than to wipe them off the face of the earth.

Israel’s borders with Egypt, Lebanon and especially the Gaza Strip are the most dangerous. The intruders across these borders are not after Israeli jobs, their welfare, or their way of life like those crossing the US border from Mexico.

Their intruders are terrorists who want toblow them up and kill them all . Instead of Mexican drug cartels, they are dealing with Hamas and Hezbollah.

The terrorists often watch the Israeli border patrol to learn their habits and routines. They use that information to kill the border patrol and infiltrate the tiny nation.

In an effort to help secure their borders while also protecting their border patrol agents, the Israeli Army Engineering Corps (pronouned core, not corpse) are developing robots to use for patrolling the borders. Working with various private companies, they are creating robots that will have the ability to detect anyone crossing the border and if necessary to shoot at them. They will be controlled by someone back at a command station who will be able to monitor the robot.

As I was reading about them, I couldn’t help but wonder if the US could use the same type of robots to patrol our borders. Instead of placing good men like Brian Terry along the US/Mexican border to be slain with weapons our government provided to our enemies, we should use robots instead. If the robots are equipped with motion sensors, infrared heat detection and ways to stun, detain and/or shoot if necessary, they could be more effective than human agents. They could patrol our borders day or night, rain or shine.

If word got out that we had robots patrolling our borders with instructions to detain or shoot intruders, I strongly suspect the number of people trying to enter our country illegally would drastically drop. That would also lead to more jobs for Americans and fewer government dollars being wasted on illegals.
