Our Secure Borders are a lie.
Sleep Well Tonight
To make any sense of this hub you must watch at least part of the following video.
Perhaps some of you remember the speech our President made in El Paso, Texas where he claimed the fence separating Mexico and the United States was complete and next we would want a moat with alligators. The liberals thought that comment was hilarious but they have obviously not been anywhere near the border anytime in their lives.
Well, if you look at this video you will see that what he told us was not quite true. Perhaps he had received some bad intel from the agencies who are in charge of border security, or he could have been lying to us.
I live in Arizona and can show you miles and miles of our border with Mexico that have only a barbed wire fence or no fence at all.
This video will clearly show you exactly how secure the border really is. This knowledge should be somewhat terrifying to you, especially with the current threats from ISIS to fly their flag over the White House.
Our Border Fence
The Truth Sometimes Hurts
Now that you have seen the video I would have to believe that you now know we are being lied to regarding our own border security.
The big question is do any of our members of Congress know this fact and choose to ignore the situation, or are they so blind and stupid they just don't care? If they are aware of this open border situation they should be screaming at everyone they know to get this border sealed immediately.
It is no longer just a few poor people from other countries sneaking across the border to find work. Much of this area is actually controlled by the Drug Cartels running drugs and smuggling humans into the United States.
There are actually areas along the border where the Border Patrol is not allowed to patrol because they are designated as parks. Anyone who would use one of these parks as a place to take their family would have to be insane.
Most of the fence is a joke.
We have been told repeatedly by Obama, Harry Reid, Napolitano, and many others that our border is more secure than it has ever been.
That would make one wonder if that statement were true, what was it like before it was secure?
We are no longer dealing with just migrant workers coming to pick crops to earn some money and then return home. We have drug traffickers and human smugglers to deal with and they bring huge groups of illegals into this country daily.
Much of our Border Patrol is now miles from the border trying to feed and care for the thousands of illegal children we are welcoming into this country with open arms. They are far busier changing diapers than they are patrolling the border.
This is not the fault of the Border Patrol. For the most part they are hard working dedicated people fighting a losing battle over illegal immigration. They risk their lives to apprehend some very bad people, only to have them released almost immediately to return again, and again.
Come one come all went the cry. We will feed you, clothe you, and provide you with a good education. And they came and continue to come.
Millions of dollars worth of fence.
Who do they think they are kidding?
I'm confused as to whether our politicians think we are stupid enough to believe these lies or perhaps it is that they themselves believe these lies.
A few months ago John McCain visited the border near Nogales, Arizona and the usual TV news crew was on hand to record his visit. Right in the middle of his conversation with the local Border Patrol official, a female climbed over the fence from Mexico and dropped down into Arizona. This was all captured on the video, and she was immediately arrested by the Border Patrol officer who were there with McCain.

During a visit to the border town of Nogales, Ariz., Sen. John McCain, along with three other senators, watched a woman successfully jump the border fence.
No, I am not a racist.
Almost everyone who writes anything these days complaining about illegal immigration or our open border is immediately labeled as a racist. Let me tell you right up front that is not the case with me.
I have lived in Arizona for over 70 years, and many of my closest friends are Hispanics. I love their culture and like Mexican food better than most American food.
My big concern as stated earlier is that we are not safe with these wide open borders. The Border Patrol has lately been apprehending people from countries all over the world crossing our borders illegally.
Do not, repeat, do not let anyone tell you that our border is even close to secure because that is an outright lie.
If you still refuse to believe this fact, make a trip to Arizona or Texas and put your own eyes on the non-existent border fence and you will become a believer.
If you write your Congressman about anything, throw in a few words about your concern over our lack of border security.
This is a very serious matter and I appreciate you taking the time to read this hub. Your comments are welcome and appreciated.
