In light of the protest of Shapleigh and others against further construction of the border fence, we once again see how our politicians disregard the well-being of the American people.
Shapleigh's group says that the fence restricts trade. Tell me, what kind of trade comes across in the areas where the fence is constructed. Drugs, that's what.
They say that the fence causes bad feelings in light of the events in the "murder capital of the world." I say that severing all ties with Mexico is a viable option.
They say "wall of hate." What a joke. The fence protects Americans against illegal aliens and drug traffickers.
For those of you who want to call my statements "racism," I say you don't know what racism is. I'm calling it like it is.
How many Canadian drug cartels do you hear about, and how many Scandinavian immigrants are members of violent street gangs?
"Mexican sovereignty" is a joke, and in Mexico the corruption runs from top to bottom -- politicians, army generals, etc. The Mexican "war on drugs" is only a war to eliminate the rivals of the politicians' favorite drug cartels.
The fence protects the American people.
