I think we should form a 'border patrol' patrol. We round up border patrols and ship them off to Siberia, deep in the Amazon, the Sahara, or Wales.

Another keeper.

Yup, try your proposal out on the general public.

Just because the general public thinks something doesn't make it right. There are way too many examples of this fact.

Social Security, for starters.

When I get new information which corrects prior posts, I add that information.

Federal Auditor: Border Patrol Can Stop Illegal Entries Along Only 129 Miles of 1,954-Mile Mexican Border

Thursday, March 31, 2011
By Terence P. Jeffrey


(CNSNews.com) - Richard M. Stana, director of homeland security and justice issues at the Government Accountability Office (which is responsible for “auditing agency operations to determine whether federal funds are being spent efficiently and effectively”), told the Senate Homeland Security Committee yesterday that the federal government can actually prevent or stop illegal entries into the United States along only 129 miles of the 1,954-mile-long U.S.-Mexico border.

Just what non-citizens of East Germany wanted to illegally enter East Germany?

Ask Joe Miller.

So, you have no idea of what you posted?!?

If you are asserting the quote to Mr. Miller, would you please be so good as to provide the url?

Is it possible it is not an exact quotation, but just your interpretation?

The first thing that has to be done is secure the border. . .  East Germany was very, very able to reduce the flow.  Now, obviously, other things were involved.  We have the capacity to, as a great nation, secure the border.  If East Germany could, we could.

I think Andy Barr put it well in Politico when he stated that:

“Miller did not note that the purpose of the Berlin Wall and East German security was to keep large numbers of people from emigrating to the West.”

Oh well, Miller said a number of stupid things after getting the Republican nomination.

And I very much doubt that Joe Miller cares whether it is about keeping people in or keeping people out. That's beside the point. The point was that a general "shoot to kill" order is an effective measure for ensuring border security.

And I return to my original point relative to your initial post on this thread.

Aside from demonstrating that Joe Miller said stupid things, what the heck does it have to do with the substance of the thread?

Or are you trying to suggest that you agree with Mr. Miller on how to approach border matters?

Playing dumb now, I see.

I agree with Joe Miller insofar that "border patrols" like East Germany once had are probably the only way to ensure a 100% or even 90% border security.

I disagree with him insofar that this kind of border security would be a desirable thing.

So, you would maintain that only rather bizzare methods can achieve border security, and that since you oppose such methods you are therefor opposed to border security?

Hmm.

I would maintain what I was just saying. Any further interpretations/distortions on your part are not my primary concern.

I am seeking clarification, and you insist on ducking simple questions.
