Report: Focus on border security overshadows economic benefits

Rep. Raul Grijalva, D- Tucson, knows there are benefits to be had from a U.S.-Mexico relationship, but fears the possibilities have been endangered by the hostility that has become part of the immigration debate. “The border lines went from a unique American landscape of people, history, and land itself, to a threat … to something to be feared,” he said. “Making that transition has affected the border tremendously.”

Grijalva is an idiot, but I already knew that.

The buildup in border patrol does not interfere with a single dime of legal trade across the border.

As to the Mexican nationals who come here to spend money and leave…they know they’re welcome by most here and won’t be harassed. Those are the Mexican nationals we want, those who come here, spend a bunch of money, and leave.

This is just Grijalva trying to spin his open border agenda in a vain attempt to make it look like something legit. I am anxiously waiting for the day when the so-called voters in his district stop being stupid and actually care enough about their community to vote this idiot out.
