YO! Just THIS In....

These suburban Dallasites need to build a wall around Farmer's Branch...then they'll have the first little Gaza Strip West...if
a lot bigger one doesn't develop first along the Texas-Mexican border. These douche bags are gonna keep on sticking their finger
in the eye of the Statue of Liberty till some poor bastard grabs it and sticks it up their ass. Then there'll be another ethnic brand of terrorism.

The evil in the world always comes from ignorance, said Albert Camus. He was spot on.

OY!

YO! Here's a little sumpin' to add to the item I sent earlier regarding the folks in Farmer's Branch, Tejas.

Border Patrol Says Agents Crossed Border 58 minutes ago
EL PASO, Texas (AP) -- U.S. Border Patrol agents crossed the Rio Grande into Mexico last week while chasing a drug smuggling suspect, Border Patrol officials said Monday.

OY Sez: How does one say Gaza in Tex-Mex? OY!

I read your article.

I don't see any parallels between US immigration policy and Israel, nor between Mexico and Gaza. Maybe if certain Mexican factions were hell-bent on killing random US citizens and the Mexican government were belligerently helping them while simultaneously demanding US aid, sure, but that's not happening.

Unfortunately this is one of those issues that's become polarized to where neither side makes any sense. On one hand, it's not practical to try to seal the US/Mexico border and it's not certain it would be good policy if it were. On the other hand, a totally open border doesn't make any sense, nor does just looking the other way at the million or so people who are coming illegally.

What's missing is the excluded middle. It's possible to simultaneously tighten up on illegal immigration while also creating more legal avenues for workers to get here. It's not an all or nothing proposition.
