How many more of our brave heros have to die until we close the border with Mexico? The illegals have declared war and it is time to give the border agents a green light to eliminate anything that moves down there. If 1 of ours dies it's time to kill 1000 of theirs.

Just watching these guys a couple of nights ago on the great show 'Border Wars'. If you want positive action on the open border dumbfounded, get everybody out this November and VOTE. Our current administration is only interested in getting in the way. RIP Officer Cavazos.
