    If Bush were to do this he could redeem himself just a tiny bit.

    The fact that it has gotten as far as it has is absolutely disgusting.

    They should be given medals for repelling an invader.

    Maybe I just don't understand, but..........

    When unauthorized people cross the border of any country anywhere in the world, doesn't that country have the right to stop them? I mean stop them by any means necessary up to and including deadly force?

    If I were to illegally cross into Mexico, I would expect the Mexican authorities to start shooting at me if they couldn't take me into custody.

    Maybe Germany and Poland in 1939 is an extreme example, but isn't it the same principle?

    Does anyone know how international law treats this type situation?

    And we all know how active this Mexican diplomat has been in ensuring the nice treatment of Americans in Mexican prisons . . . right?

    Turn the southern border in a mine field. Anyone that runs the gauntlet and make it in on piece gets to come to America.

    Man. The border desert area would probably make a great training ground for practicing hunting down terrorist. Sniper teams could practice surveillance, gunships could practice strafing, and artillery has plenty of open desert to lay it down.
