Do you feel Illegal Immigration is as great a threat to the United States as Terrorism ?

What exactly is the difference? Economic terrorism vs. terrorism in general.

The porous border with Mexico lets in Illegal Immigrants and Foreign Terrorists.

Who knows I wouldn't be surprised to hear we are arming the Cartels for some stupid reason.

Perhaps it is to make it more dangerous for the Tallywhacko's who may try to sneak across the border to attack us. That would make some perverse sense, actually; a war zone would probably be almost as effective as a border wall but doesn't require an act of congress.

Yes Im paranoid.

The porous(sp?) border is that way so that the drugs keep coming in. The illegal immigration is just a bonus. Seriously I think if I guy will sneak under a fence and walk across the desrt to find an 8 dollar an hour job, hes probably not a threat and just wants to send some taco money home.

90% of the worlds heroin originates in Afghanistan. The amount increases sharply every year since 2001 when it was an all time low.

90% of that comes in to the United States through Mexico.

I believe cheap illegal drugs is just another tool the feds use to control the sheep, like cable TV. I cant find any other way to explain the facts.

Are there any Afghanistan vets here that can tell us first hand what is going on in Afghanistan?

Why is CNN free w basic cable but FOX is extra?

I would need to see evidence that we are arming the cartels, doesnt make sense to me they have more money than god and all the guns they could want for sale here in the USA.

Fox News actually gets the story right?

It is sadly reminiscent of Central and South America in the 1980s, but this time it seems just a little too close to home for comfort.

Fox News has its slant, its true, but they do report. Compare it to CNN which simply doesnt report what they dont want to(almost anything domestic).

This is just my opinion but it formed after actual first hand studies. My father is ill and we spend a lot of time watching the news, and after further review Fox is the best news any of us are likely to get.

My numbers on heroin came from the 2010 almanac (with only 2009 figures) and the Wikipedia.
