BIG BEND NATIONAL PARK, Texas – The bloody drug war in Mexico shows no sign of relenting. Neither do calls for tighter border security amid rising fears of spillover violence.
This hardly seems a time the U.S. would be willing to allow people to cross the border legally from Mexico without a customs officer in sight.

Reminds me of my least favorite gameshow, 'The Price is Wrong'. Instead of 'Come on downnnnnnnnnn", it should be "Come On In". Just what we need in this country right now with the historic levels of unemployment, more illegal aliens taking jobs and sucking off of the public teat.
Not to mention the threat of the drug wars escalating or the increased chances of terrorists slipping into this country.
Can this administration get anymore assinine? Wait don't answer that. Of course it can. I really can't wait to see what it does next. Hell, they might as well put out a welcome mat.
