CBS says that assaults against Border Patrol agents in the Yuma sector have shot up to 126 in the first six months of this fiscal year. That's approaching the number of assaults all last year. But, just the other day, President Bush was touring the area telling us how secure it had become. At a Border Patrol station in Yuma, he called for laws to help illegals get temporary work in the United States and clear up their illegal status with a "path to citizenship" (amnesty). Why doesn't he enforce the laws we currently have in place? Bush had the ever useless Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff with him.
It's a shame they didn't get an opportunity to get pelted with the bricks and rocks our real law enforcement gets hit with on a regular basis. Perhaps a good blow to the head would instill some common sense in these two clueless conspirators.
I'll leave you with this quote from our president announcing his latest insight. "If you don't man your border and don't protect your borders, people are going to sneak in." Ya think?
