And janet Napalitano comes to Az has dinner and still says the border is safer than ever. 50mph through school zone, almost kills a deputy, bags of dangerous drugs, in this country illegally ....... Close the border now.  Our leaders have failed to secure the border and sue the states that try to protect and do the job they wont.  Boots on the ground from San Diego to Matamoros.The border can be secured. Stop all the bad guys.  Stop all illegal border jumpers.

33 ponds of heroin coming into our country and the 3 amigos think the border is secure???? Think again.  This countries and administrations attitude toward border security is shameful. The border can and should be secured. The # one duty of those serving in government is to protect the citizens.  It isnt being done. It will only get worse.  I can only imagine the criminals across the line laugh at our border security. Just a little hindrance here and there. How many criminals are successful that ya never know about. There must be reward somewhere for those that refuse to shut the border down.

az only has some 400 plus miles of border with Mexico.  Ya cant tell me that the state and feds cant control 400 miles and stop all illegal smuggling and border jumpers. Heads in the sand. This prblem is already affecting all Us citizens and will worsen if not met with drastic measures.  I wrote my congress woman, called her office in DC & sierra vista and didnt even receive a form letter reply. Does anybody out there care, or after years of the swarming invasion of illegal border jumpers and smuggling criminals, are we just numb to this threat to our country. Thanx all you senators congress people DOJ PREZ vice Prez Big Sis and anybody else that is responsible for protecting our country and have failed miserably for years.  There are no excuses only alibis
