How to fix a broken border: Hit cartels where it hurts

Much of the "secure the border" debate is nonsense. If the United States wants effective border security and not just a political punching bag where symbolism trumps common sense, then more effective law‐enforcement measures must be taken.

immigration reform advocates point to a broken immigration system that forces immigrants into the hands of increasingly violent smugglers in order to make the trip to the United States.

Story just started, and already we have pinpointed a HUGE part of the whole problem right there…the mindset that border jumpers HAVE to come here, and they HAVE to do it illegally. No, not correct. Each and every one of them has the choice to respect our laws. They can either not come here at all, or go through the respectful process and come here legally.

Dearest Bret

You offer a simple bumper sticker solution to one of the most complex issues offered in the last 100 years.  I am gravely disappointed in your poor analysis of the multi-issues that Terry Goddard has addressed. 

I suspect that you are one of the Republican assassins that have been sent out to kill anyone that uses logic in a public place.

Terry Goddard (this is the guy that wrote the above article) has shown various issues and has shown solutions

You?  You offer only scorn and ignorance.  Please go to the land of scorn and ignorance.  You have no business being in the land of the living.
