Breitbart has a story about 28 miles of virtual fence
that is going to be installed on the Arizona-Mexico border. Can Count
Chertoff guarantee that his virtual fence would have kept out Alianiss Morales when she entered the United States, had one been installed at her point of entry?
This illegal alien was apparently in Minnesota doing work that an American could be doing, working for Jenno Foods. It is sad that displacing an American worker is not all Morales has done. Tuesday she ran a stop sign and collided with a school bus, killing four children.
Why did this tragedy happen? A portion of the responsibility must be on
the shoulders of our federal government. Chertoff has not been doing
his job. This may well be the result of President Bush providing
direction that superseded adequate performance of the duties Chertoff
should have been executing. The bottom line is the fact that the job
was not performed.
The Republican Party’s presumptive nominee for president has been an
active obstruction to border security and the most recent amnesty bill
was his namesake (along with the senior drunk driver from
Taxachussets.) How many people out there wonder how we got to the point
where no matter which party wins the presidency, illegal aliens will
likely get amnesty and benefits for violating our laws? Perhaps the two
major parties do not have the best interest of American citizens at
heart. What a shock! Of course the majority of the
electorate is distracted by other factors of their lives, some
significant and others petty. The distracted majority is the recipe for
disaster that will be prepared by our elite political “leaders!”
Chertoff spouts off about the effectiveness of the virtual fence,
but the example he gives in the article seems to hinge on the fact that
the prospective crossers gathered near the border. What if they hadn’t
gathered and delayed crossing? If they had just crossed, we might have
known how many had crossed, but they might not have been caught or
chased back across the border. I suggest that a virtual fence might be
of more use in some on-line game and could be used to keep out virtual
illegal aliens. The unfortunate part is that virtual illegal aliens
commit no crimes and don’t kill people.
Once again, when DHS spends our money on security it is actually
wasting it on something that may be little more than a symbol designed
to look like enforcement.
