Posted on 02/14/2010 12:49:11 AM PST by Robert Lomax
A couple of weeks ago, I had a rare opportunity to speak with Asa Hutchinson, former undersecretary for border and transportation security at DHS, and Michael Chertoff, former Secretary of Homeland Security. We were traveling by limousine after a War on Drugs symposium at the Chaptman School of Law in Orange County, California. This week, Mr. Hutchinson penned an analysis entitled Visa security is critical to preventing terrorist attacks.
During our conversation, Mr. Chertoff and I certainly found many areas of disagreement.
When I discussed the continuing failures to complete a fence on our southern border, he touted the hundreds of miles of fence that were completed, noting that there were ranchers who were raising hell about the construction of border fences on their land. I replied that I found it unfathomable that "Eminent Domain" had been invoked in a number of high profile cases to justify seizing homeowners' land and property to build commercial projects but that the complaints of ranchers was enough to stymie the federal government from constructing barriers to prevent the entry of criminals, illegal drugs and potentially terrorists. I also asked Mr. Chertoff if he thought that perhaps the protesting ranchers were upset that the fences might block the entry of illegal aliens they sought to employ.

I guess this didn't occur to these jerks.
Good thread on the dangers of immigration. Thank you.
Isn’t this what government always does?
Gov’t (fed and state) issue visas, passports, and driver licenses like candy. It is a joke how easy it is for terrorists and illegals to obtain documentation straight from the source-—gov’t.
