You live in Virginia...I'm here in Texas...you haven't a clue as to how bad it is in a border state.
I am not saying that the border patrol should not use deadly force if the situation calls for it and the ROE for the BP agents possibly should be loosened, what happened here http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/ar...TICLE_ID=51417
with these two agents facing prison time for doing their jobs is a travesty of justice. In my first post I said that I want the Government to actually support them when they do their jobs, I don't believe that making every illegal coming across the border a target is the solution.
I have seen the numbers http://www.numbersusa.com/interests/illegalimm.html
I know what a huge problem it is even though I have just read about it and watched it secondhand, thanks to newspapers, magazines and the internet, I don't need to live in a border state. I have been to Arizona, believe me this is not the first time I have heard about the problem.
Brickboy I completely agree with your post.
"No where in my post did I say shoot them on the streets and job sites."
I realize that, and I did not say that you did. I was asking when do the illegals cease to become targets? Is it once they are out of your rifle sights or once they have a job or are they fair game and it would be acceptable to track them from the border to wherever and shoot them when you find them?
I was taking your post literally and I'm just curious as to how far you thought this out.
