Okay, so as many of you know, I lived in southern AZ for a couple years. For a year of that, I lived in Palominas (Hereford), AZ, which is within view of the border. I have had Border Patrol (BP) helicopters over my house spotlighting the back yard and have called the BP because I heard movement outside. Of course when I called them, all I wanted for them to do was pan around with their remote camera tower and tell me if they saw anything, but they insisted on sending a patrol instead. Fine.
Contrary to what the liberals may believe, I am not anti-immigration, I am against illegal immigration, aka criminal tresspassing. With this thought in mind, and considering the average age of this site's members (Probably about 140 years old on average. We do have samD, LLE, Greg AZ, and the skidmarks in ebear's undies), I'd like to start a discussion on the steps that private citizens might take on this. I'm not so much trying to discuss what we can do right now, or what is going on, but what do you folks see could or should be done? It's probably safe to say that many of the members aren't likely to be able to ruck up and move out, so what can older guys do that will have a practical benefit?
Obviously, the right answer of what should be done is the feds should take border security seriously and start cracking down on illegal invaders with all the cool gadgets and weapons our tax dollars provide them. They should also finish the real fence. Not the "vehicle barrier" fences, but the big 20-foot high steel slat fuckers.
Let's assume for a moment that the government refuses to do their job (Wow, what a stretch, huh?), but says to the American people "Fuck it. It's your border, you secure it". How would you folks use your abilities to support the effort?
Does this even make sense? I'm sorta confused and I'm not even drunk right now.
