Protect our people by protecting our borders

No more illegal immigrants.

I'll glady pay higher produce, fast food, and hotel costs as our education, health care, police force, and prison costs decrease.

Get us a president who reminds the left that criminals are criminals.

This is really tragic. A terrible crime has been committed not only on this man and his family but on the nation. May we remember his family in our prayers.

Why don't we open our boarders as President Obama wanted? Having an open boarder policy would stop these unneeded deaths. Of course, we would have a lot more criminals, drugs and welfare cases sucking up our already bad economy, but that shouldn't matter. We can always borrow more money from China. So what if we have more national debt already than we ever had before and our world credit rating is less than sterling? All that matters is that some of our less fortunate get their "fair share" of everyone else's money. But for sure we can't afford more boarder protection.

My sincere condolences to the young woman and her children who lost their father. He is just as much a hero as any of our warriers who lose their lives in the protection of our country.

What a tragic loss. I hope the murderers are found and justice prevails. My heart goes out to the young family from whom this good man was taken.

Meanwhile, when the Ambassador to Lybia was brutally killed, Mitt Romney immediately began kicking it around as a political football.

Now this devoted man is murdered in the line of duty, and all some of you can do is the same thing?

Bad form.

I express my sympathy to this man's family. There will be an adjustment time and for sure I don't know what they're feeling but I wish them well.

An investigation will reveal some of the conditions surrounding this tragedy. This attack at night might require specialized equipment of the sort that terrorists, drug cartels, or militaries might have. How safe are our borders really? Nearly 30 agents killed along the border in 10 years. Nearly 30 families that have suffered a terrible loss, within our own country, while defending a dangerous border.

We need to secure that border.

Our hearts go out to the agents, wife, children, family and friends.

When are we going to get serious about protecting our borders and enforcing our immigration laws?

I am so sad for this little family. It's such a senseless loss. I hope this isn't another result of the Fast and Furious disaster.

a scientist....you are so very wrong in so many ways, all I can assume of you is that you are truely afraid of the blame being laid at Obama's door...Where it Belongs!!
..Here are the words of our Az Gov... ponder them, if you are able....
.Gov. Brewer said...
"What happens next has become all-too-familiar in Arizona: Flags will be lowered in honor of the slain agent. Elected officials will vow to find those responsible. Arizonans, and Americans will grieve – and they should.

“But this ought not only be a day of tears,” Brewer added. “There should be anger, too. Righteous anger – at the kind of evil that causes sorrow this deep, and at the federal failure and political stalemate that has left our border unsecured and our Border Patrol in harm’s way.

My condolences to the family for their loss of a father and husband.

This issue is much more complicated though then just blaming Pres. Obama. It was a GOP President that put the border fence in, a GOP State Legislature that passed laws in defiance of US Law, and it was a GOP led House that provided the gridlock in Congress to stymie any passage of immigration reform.

If I remember my constitution and the separation of powers, it's the responsibility of the executive branch to enforce the law and the responsibility of the legislative brand to make the law. In other words all the things people are blaming Pres. Obama for are really the result of legislative inaction, not executive inaction. The sad thing is when you enforce the law against criminals, officers are hurt.

The bottom line is immigration is a much more complicated issue than just closing and guarding the borders. When one party won't even come to the table to talk or just say NO to everything, we never solve the problem. The my way or the highway approach of the GOP does not serve our country.

Heartfelt condolences to the family of this hero.

a scientist....your comment is So wrong in so very many ways that one can only think that you are afraid of the blame for our Broken Borders will be leveled at the feet of obama, and Rightly So!!
Listen to what our Gov. Brewer had to say today..
"What happens next has become all-too-familiar in Arizona: Flags will be lowered in honor of the slain agent. Elected officials will vow to find those responsible. Arizonans, and Americans will grieve – and they should.

Righteous anger – at the kind of evil that causes sorrow this deep, and at the federal failure and political stalemate that has left our border unsecured and our Border Patrol in harm’s way.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family. I am sure he watches over them and will until they are reunited again. What a brave man!

So help me out here, DesNews. Why are we supposed to support open borders and the disarming of border patrol agents?

Today we took flowers to the U.S. Border Guards and the flag was already at halfmast. You feel so helpless when things like this happen. We all expect security and protection by our Government - but this is no longer the case. It is the individual border guard, soldier, police and firemen that keep us safe - their commitment is noble. What happened to our governing leaders. When the leader of the land goes to a fundraiser after addressing the families of the fallen Ambassador and other murdered citizens - we realize we don't have a leader worthy of the office. Unless there is a change - it is each of us that is going to have to look after one another, to protect and administer and protect our own freedoms.

Bring the troops ( and their heavy armored vehicles ) home from the 4 corners of the world and rotate their service on the border with Mexico. I seriously doubt the border with Mexico would be as dangerous for the Army and Marines as the situation has been in Iraq and Afghanistan.

I doubt we need the heavy artillery and bombers that have been used in the Middle East.
