National Security at the Border

Red Planet Cartoons has excellent commentary on the big picture concerning the sealing of the U.S. southern border, "National Security at the Border".

We couldn't agree more.

Opponents of increased security, a border fence and a crack-down on those who sneak across the border miss this point entirely.

Their arguments fall into two categories: "it won't work" and "you're a racist".

Neither is particularly convincing--outside of the cocktail parties attended by border security opponents.

Red Planet Cartoons starts out with a reprise of Robert Spencer's National Security at the Border:
Three Afghanis were arrested Wednesday at an international airport in India’s Kerala state for flying with forged Mexican passports…

The warnings have been coming in for years. In June 2004, border patrol agents arrested 77 “Middle Eastern” men attempting to enter the U.S. illegally.

As usual, Red Planet provides a Spencer video and more links to relevant information on this highly important--and one hopes, not highly-explosive--subject.

By chance, DBKP did two border security stories this week: "Illegal Immigration, The Big Lie: Eisenhower Stopped Border Crossings COLD" and "FISA Battle Continues While Southern Border Remains Open".

The latter was written almost at the same time as the Red Planet Cartoon above. It's an issue that's not going away.

National Security at the Border, another important theme from Red Planet Cartoons.
