Advocates of Turning the U. S. – Mexican Border Into a Semi Police State Need to Live There

Military Tactics to Control the Border Result in Military Occupation

Those people who become crazed about illegal immigration and the need for the United States to turn into what was formerly East Germany need to understand what that does to the people living on the front lines.  It turns the communities into a version of that despicable East German state.

This what you want your neighborhood to look like?

BISBEE, Ariz. — For the last 20 years, they have descended on the sun-bleached desert lands in southeastern Arizona near the Mexican border.
Longtime locals say they damage irrigation lines, tread on land without permission, alienate merchants and contribute to a sense of unease that didn't use to exist.
But lately these complaints are aimed not so much at people arriving illegally from Mexico as they are at the federal forces sent to stop them.
Residents say the deployment of hundreds of agents — armed, uniformed and omnipresent — and millions of dollars in new infrastructure have created a military-like occupation in their once-sleepy hamlets.

This should not be a surprise.  The government and the military are not the way to control illegal immigration.  The way to control illegal immigration is to help the source countries become reasonable places to live, so that the incentive to leave is reduced, and to have a rationale immigration process for those who want to leave.

Instead we have fanatics claiming that the United States is threatened by poor immigrant families entering the U. S. for the same reason that poor immigrant families have always entered the U.S, to get a better life.  Give them the opportunity (not the guarantee, just the opportunity) for a better life where they currently live and they will stop coming here illegally.

Really, it’s that simple.
