If a pipe burst and your home started taking on water, the first priority would be to stop the leak, fix the pipe, then deal with removing the excess water. Border security should be seen the same way, and it is a crying shame that it isn’t.

The fact of the matter is that the border is more secure now than it has ever been. And yet some members of Congress continue to insist that the border is unsafe

Maybe we should ask Robert Krentz’ family how secure the border is.

Operational control is not a myth. It is a very obtainable goal, we just have to want it. If crybabies like the authors of this piece would shut their headholes and start being patriotic, maybe we as a nation can muster the will to do what needs to be done to secure the border.
