This has absolutely nothing to with unarmed people trying to immigrate to the Unites States for economic opportunity and freedom.

This relates to the armed drug cartels that are engaged in the black market of smuggling drugs because of the War on Drugs in the United States. It's also these same drug cartels and smugglers that represent the threat of violence against American ranchers located along our border and not those coming here for jobs.

Based upon the corruption, brutality, inhumanity, immorality, dishonesty, and incompetence of the Trump administration the White House is the dirtiest house in America and there's no known cleanser that with remove the stains of the Trump Administration.

False...

The shooting was to get the illegals over the border before being stopped...

Quote:
"When the shooting stopped, about 40 to 50 people came out on the U.S. side and turned themselves in. So clearly the rounds were being fired to suppress every effort to stop anybody intervening with anyone or anything coming across," Gohmert added. "We have no idea what or how many or whom came across with the other illegal immigrants."

What cnredd said.

I wish people would stop defending the trespassers, unarmed or otherwise.

"Anything" refers to drugs being smuggled across the border. Try reading everything that was stated in the article. The assumption that it was about illegal immigrants that were already in the United States was nothing but an assumption and we don't have a clue about how many drugs this gunfire might have prevented border agents from finding.

Of course even I must admit that our immigration laws also create a black market for labor which isn't much different than drugs. Prohibitions often create black markets and black markets are know for creating violence. The point is really that the US creates black markets with laws of prohibition and then suffers the violence because of the prohibitions. It was true during alcohol prohibition and it's true today.

What did Einstein say the definition of "insanity" was? "Doing the same thing over again and expecting different results."

And also these children are bait to stop our B.P. from doing their real jobs. But I am tired of this BS from some nut case. That if he would just think before posting would realize the truth and stop interrupting on going conversation.

Think you can just do this ShivaTD? Cause if you can't you can join Mikeyy...

Ten pounds of $hit in a 5 pound bag. These criminals are not immigrating, they are illegally entering a sovereign nation. Immigrants come into this country legally, as over 100,000 people from mexico do every year. The people texas is having problems with are not immigrants or undocumented workers, they are criminals.

Calling an illegal alien an "undocumented worker" is like calling the corner drug dealer an "unlicensed pharmacist".

Seems to me that directing machinegun fire across the border into a sovereign nation is skirting awful close to the definition of "act of war".
