    Default Re: Inside the Massive U.S. 'Border Zone'

    The article is Liberal drivel, designed to make this audience of Conservatives, help that demographic of Liberals, to cripple the effort of removing the criminal illegal aliens in this country.
    My point is that the entire argument is academic if we don't retake our government.
    We can't solve any problem unless we retake our government.
    So let's focus on retaking our government, and not allow ourselves to be distracted by Liberal drivel.

    I agree. The author is twisting some of the "facts". Yes, 65% of the US population lives within 100 miles of our border. But.... to come up with this percentage the writer had to use the Atlantic and Pacific seaboards so he could capture large cities like NYC, Boston, Philadelphia... last time I checked we don't have illegals landing on the beaches of Ocean City, MD by the hundreds each week. The truth is a very, very small percentage of American citizens live in the desert border towns.

    By the way... I spent several years at Ft Huachuca, AZ, approx. 20 miles north of the border, and not far from Arivaca . I've hunted, ridden motorcycles/ATVs, hiked, and camped all through Cochise and Pima Counties. This is scrub desert, it is not "surrounded by grasslands". I'm wondering if the author has even set foot on the ground there. I can tell you from first hand experience the illegal border crossers are a problem. The amount of thefts, property damage, drug smuggling, etc is a threat to the locals if not the entire country.

    If we live within 100 miles, we are subject to the reduced liberties mentioned within. I think *that* is the point he's trying to make.
