America Must Secure Its Border

The United States needs to stop playing around and secure its border.  States such as Texas and Arizona should not be continuously inundated with people crossing over from Mexico and overwhelming the resources of these states. The onslaught of children from Central American countries that have entered America has put tremendous pressure on the federal government to find a solution to stop the massive flow of kids coming into the US. Political posturing by the Obama Administration, Senate and the House of Representatives have not solved anything. Other countries around the world do not allow unlimited amounts of people to come illegally across their borders.

The US has to concentrate on its own problems and for the foreseeable future does not have the resources to just open the floodgates of its border and allow illegals to cross over with impunity. It is not a matter that the United States is not compassionate, but that the country currently cannot take care of its own citizens. As is well known, America is deeply in debt to the tune of 17 Trillion dollars and the number is second by second going up to the point that the long term fiscal well being of the country is in danger.

Another factor that needs to be taken into context is that the Central American countries are havens for drug gangs that work for the large Mexican drug cartels that control the flow of illicit contraband such as narcotics coming into America. The United States Department of State 2014 International Narcotics Control Strategy Report estimates that approximately 90 percent of illegal drugs from South America destined for the United States are smuggled through the seven Central American countries and Mexican corridor. How many  illegals coming from these Central American countries into the US are affiliated with drug gangs? Are any of the illegals going to work for the drug traffickers when situated in the United States?

It is a tragedy of what is happening in Central America because of the violence and the economic situation. Nobody wants to be heartless and turn their back on children, but if the United States just rolls over and allows all of the illegal border crossing children to live in the country then the word will spread like wildfire that America is allowing everyone to stay who makes it into the United States. Do the bleeding hearts have any idea what kind of calamity would be caused if the news south of the border is that the gringo’s are accepting every illegal with open arms? The US would be overrun with people from all over South and Central America and then it would be totally impossible to control. The United States needs to make it crystal clear that the children and the adults coming over illegally cannot stay and are immediately sent back to their country of origin.
