The following article is about drug cartels who have set up lookouts in the mountains of Arizona. I didn't just find it on this source. It is out there in many other places for anyone who wants another source. Why isn't our government down there running out those folks. Are we protecting drug smugglers coming into this country. I posted this here because this is one more example of problems on our borders that our government needs to deal with and should have already done so.http://www.foxnews.com/us/2010/06/22...outs-parkland/
The good congressman forgot to mention that at the time, the river was miles wide from flooding, looking more like an enormous lake than a river. Helicopters could have been several miles inside the US border and still been over water. This has been a banner year nationwide for flooding. We had water standing on 1000 year flood plains this year. I don't understand why the congressman feels that Mexico is an enemy nation, that seems to be a bit confusing actually. He claims that "we protect other nation's borders with our military"...yet, Turks will cross several miles into Iraq, Pakistan will cross several miles into Afghanistan, etc. Friendly nations do that.
As for the rest, I'd don't know really. The government isn't chasing US drug gang lookouts out of Phoenix, Little Rock, LA, DC, Kansas City, Las Vegas, Indianapolis, Albany, Boston, etc. either. Maybe it's because they realize that it's a criminal thing, not an immigration thing. Perhaps if our law enforcement agencies spent as much time pursuing violent criminals as they do complaining about immigrants, things may not be so bad.
