Why Protect Our Borders...

I'm pretty sure (almost) everybody agrees that there should be a "protected" southern border. At least any politician that wants to be elected, agrees. I never really believe when a lefty says that immigration 'reform' starts with strong border security. But articles like: Mexican Mayor Kidnapped by Gunmen as 8 Hunters Found Shot to Death may help to convince them.

But the reality is, "strong border protection" is just a start. The people who kidnap mayors while wearing police uniforms - don't have to cross the border in the desert in the middle of the night. They can, they just don't have to. More likely, they cross the border legally, or with some form of paperwork, and just stay. The problem is - How do we distinguish between people illegally in the United States who are fleeing from the violence and people who are illegally in the United States - bringing the violence?
