Why haven’t our borders been secured already? Maybe it is because NAFTA and CAFTA not only provide free trade, which is very misleading, but they also include the “free trade” of labor. Besides removing the barriers which tie the hands of our excellent border patrol agents, there are many other alternatives that we ought to have initiated many years ago. Beefing up the National Guard and sheriff offices with Veterans would be a great place to start. Many veterans are experienced in securing the borders of foreign nations. I do believe that they can provide valuable assistance with securing our borders. After all, isn’t securing our borders part of national defense? If you want to build a wall, great, but let’s secure the borders now while a wall is being built.
