Correct me if I’m wrong, but the only arrests I know of, of someone trying to cross the border with weapons has happened along the Canadian border. Bush has suggested that one of the major reasons behind his desire to place the National Guard onto our Southern borders is for homeland security. That’s fine. I think our borders could use the help, to be honest. The great state of Oregon and its border comes to mind as well*, but who’s paying attention? Especially when all those damned Mexicans keep coming over.
I guess my only question is this: why aren’t we putting the National Guard along our Canadian borders as well? Doesn’t Alaska border Russia? What about the Russians? Why are we paying so much attention to Mexico?
Please see comments section where I explain the Oregon bit.
