First step toward immigration reform: Define ‘secure border’

How "secure" is secure when discussing the U.S.-Mexico border? It is that very definition – or rather, lack thereof – that is among the top sticking points thwarting efforts to resolve the congressional stalemate on immigration reform.

While I don’t agree with everything the author says, he does make an excellent point: the term “secure” does need to be defined. I’ll go a step further and state that it needs to be defined regardless of whether or not so-called “immigration reform” (read:amnesty) takes place. Fred Flintstone using the word to preserve her political career is hardly a sufficient definition of the term.

My opinion…let’s go with the dictionary definition. Secure means that nothing or nobody gets in without our permission, and then only through an established port of entry. How in the world anything else was ever considered acceptable is far beyond my comprehension.
