Building The Dike, Stemming The Tide

There has been little publicity about the border wall in our media and even less about the North Koreans caught trying to cross that border.

It is time to begin contacting your representatives to gain support for this wall and you just might ask why there are North Koreans in Mexico and what happened to the four that were apprehended. Inquiring minds want to know.

The apprehension of "Other Than Mexican" illegals is a nightmare. Back in June Mark Krikorian of the Center for Immigration Studies discussed it on Hannity and Colmes. Here's some of what he said in his interview.

When they get the non-Mexican illegals who are Central and South American, but also Chinese and Middle Eastern and everything else, they can't just dump them back across the border, because Mexico won't take them.

So they — the border patrol is stuck having to make a decision. Either they lock them up in detention facilities until they're processed and have a hearing and what have you. Or they have to let them go if they don't have enough space.

And the problem is, they don't have enough money and enough detention space to hold people, so they end up just having to let them go into the United States with a free pass.

There was a high up in Hezbollah terrorist who was smuggled across the Mexican border by a ring that included a Mexican — at least one Mexican government official -- and they didn't find him until he was in Michigan and now he's locked up.

What follows now is an excerpt from an article in a foreign newspaper.

Republican lawmakers have introduced a bill to build a 3200-kilometre wall along the US border with Mexico to keep illegal immigrants out.

The legislation aims to "create a border security fence from the Pacific Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico," said House of Representatives members Duncan Hunter of California and Virgil Goode of Virginia in a statement.

Hunter told CNN it was important to identify who crosses the border and who helps them do it, adding that four North Koreans were among those arrested trying to enter the US illegally in the past few months.

It has been reported that Republican lawmakers were also considering a bill ending birthright citizenship, or jus soli, which is a right granted under the US constitution.

"There is a general agreement about the fact that citizenship in this country should not be bestowed on people who are the children of folks who come into this country illegally," said Representative Tom Tancredo of Colorado.

A group of Republican lawmakers trying to find consensus on immigration is studying whether the issue of jus soli would require a constitutional amendment or a congressional statute.
