    The only thing they represent is their own wallet and power. They are just a bunch of money hungry, egotistical baffons. :mad:

    I'd like to see the State of Texas, or Arizona call out the Militia. Wouldn't that be fun!!! :D

    Arm them with cameras and radios and back them up with a National Guard Armored Brigade.

    What's the difference?
    The National Guard was created by an act of Congress. The National Guard is not the militia referenced in the Constitution, no matter how you want to spin it. It is the U.S. military.

    The mission of the military is defending the nation. It seems to me that guarding the border falls into that category. Using combat forces to chase unarmed illegals is far from optimal but as far as I'm concerned, allowed.

    One is under the authority of the state, one is under the authority of the federal government (basically).

    That is a pretty big difference :D.

    Only kind of. Who foots the bill?

    The one who pays is the one in control.

    We need a comprehensive approach.

    1. Strip away their jobs by creating stricter controls and methods for promoting legal employment.
    -No jobs and there is no motivation to get to the United States

    2. Restrict Money Flow
    -Money going to Mexico should have to be followed with paperwork to ensure it was earned legally.

    3. Announce a Free-Pass Period towards AWAY [from here]
    -Anyone caught in the process of leaving the United States won't risk standing any form of charge for being here illegally.

    4. Aid the Mexican Government
    -A stable and successful Mexico means less people trying to get to America. Additionally, with the increase of drug violence it is foolish to think we can that war by only playing on ONE side of the border. [EDIT: IE military and development aid, which are actually very connected since a STABLE Mexico will naturally achieve more].

    Get to the point where the only people trying to cross the border DESERVE to be shot (IE they are related to the drug violence, or that al-Qaeda via Mexico scenario we always hear about- essentially no more illegal immigrants because they are no longer trying to get here) and then we can EASILY protect the border with some high powered rifles (I know pretty liberal of me to advocate not shooting illegal immigrants but I pride myself by proposing only realistic options :D).

    I think either one will work. We should try Vlad's idea first, and if it doesn't work, go with BG's.

    Almost 40% of the Federal prison population are non-US citizens. But the Media keeps telling us that illegal & legal immigrants only come here to work.
