Immigration fun

So, there is quite the fuss over the past several days about immigration. There are about 80,000 people protesting in the Capitol right now for 'immigrant rights.' That's fine with me, as long as they are protesting for the protection of LEGAL IMMIGRANT rights. Also, seems like a great opportunity for INS to deport about 75,000 illegals.

"Senators voted 83-16 to add fencing and 500 miles of vehicle barriers along the southern border....
Construction of the barrier would send "a signal that open-border days are over. ... Good fences make good neighbors, fences don't make bad neighbors," said Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala. He said border areas where barriers already exist have experienced economic improvement and reduced crime. "

I say 'Hell Yeah!' There is nothing wrong with a country protecting their own border. Mexican President Fox is threatening legal action, in U.S. Courts, about posting National Guard in admin roles on the border to allow more Border Patrol agents to actually Patrol. Hey, Fox, how about looking after your own country and economic development before going to court to help your citizens gain illegal entry into another county.
