If you think that the border is safe, simply check the border patrols weekly reports.  Every week there are apprehensions of of convicted illegal criminals (many reentering), gang members from Mexico and beyond, and numerous drug interventions.  Have we become so desensitized that we think this is acceptable just because there is a lull in illegal activity? The border isn’t safe . This is an absurd statement. Think you would feel safe enough to take your family camping in a drug trafficking corridor in the desert or mountains?? Crazy thinking, head in the sand, complete denial, blinders on.  Just read the border patrol reports. <<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>
