The administration is looking to eliminate 180 administrative border patrol jobs in the coming year even as violence along the Southwest border continues to escalate -- an Arizona sheriff’s deputy was shot by drug suspects last week, following the murder weeks earlier of an American rancher by border crossers on his own property.

“The Border Patrol catches about one-third (of illegal aliens) that come across, that is not border security, that is a joke,” Bonner said. “But to say we are just going to maintain that level of control is unacceptable.”

The administration has also proposed cuts for border agents to work overtime, Bonner said.

“Weekends and holidays are peak smuggling periods. And if we’re in the middle of a pursuit at the end of a shift, are we just supposed to stop?”

The DEMS AND REPUBS

Don't care about border security, it's just that the Dems care even less about it, because that is there future voting constituency....it's all a sham.

Seems like a daily

occurance around here, descussing securing the borders that is.
I do however agree that a good percentage of the population not
close to the border prolbably didn't give it two seconds of thought
until all of the whoopla lately brought the issue front and center.

The first comment on this says it all in one sentence.. Or as Charley D say "them wet fingered poll takers".. Bottom line is its all political..and the Dem's know this is the one way they might not lose big in Nov..

What chaps my Christian ass is that they talk about 1/3 getting caught.. that's just nonsense..

Like there's 10 million illegals in the country.. Step one is an honest assessment of the problem, and it's much more like 20-25 million... and 1/10 at the most being apprehended..

Least im starting to feel better... I'll see ya all later tonight... time for Beck, Beer, and my Baby.
