The only reason we tolerate this kind of thing is because our supposed 
leaders in Washington DC are a bunch of cowards or worse.  They are too 
afraid of doing anything for fear that it would look bad.

Heck, recall that when the Minutemen were patrolling the border the 
Mexicans told the border crossers to go elsewhere because the Minutemen 
would supposedly shoot anyone they saw.  How about if the Border Patrol 
or Nat'l. Guard actually shot a few and we let it be known that shoot 
on sight was the new policy.  How fast would the border crossings slow 
down?  I don't need to ask.
