    Default Pandemic In Mexico ?

    Do we need more reasons why it is so important to be able to regulate our boarders?

    Its time to build an Iron Curtain in reverse, to keep people out, not in and hire all the now unemployed KGB Border Guards to man it. Some land mines would make it work even better.

    That is just the tip of the iceburg. The criminal aliens bring many diseases across the border that we normally control in our population through vacinations. It gets worse when you concider they bring stuff across that we quit vacinating for years ago because we erradicated it here. One could throw bio-terrorist charges on top of everything else with the criminal aliens.

    And since we are the only other country that has had cases of this kind of flu we should presumably place ourselves in quarantine to protect the rest of the world, or is that different?

    This isn't about border control. The cases that have been reported in the US are cases of Americans who traveled legally. It doesn't take illegal aliens for this to cross the border and once the border is crossed, it's been crossed.

    If this isn't a border issue why did CDC deploy 7 epidemiologists to San Diego County, California and Imperial County, California and 1 senior medical officer to Texas on April 24th?
    How many illegal swine do you think cross the border daily? (OK that's a loaded question!)

    The CDC has been deployed multiple times for stuff coming across the border that never makes news.

    My point was that you could have a border locked down....100% of all crossings were legal...and you'd still have the current public health problem. This disease is not using a swine vector. It's transmitted human to human.

    Yes, other countries should be worried about travelers who originate from the southwest portion of the USA. Typical though for the Dems to lay the blame at Americans first. Lets not ignore where the real problem is and where it originated. Secure boarders now!!! And, if you really want to blame someone, blame our leaders in DC for all the deaths that happen north of the Rio Grande.

    Denial is not a solution!

    But with a 100% lockdown, we would start saving millions in tax payer dollars by not being forced to provide medical care to those that wonder up here with diseases that then need to be treated.

    Treat those crossing illegally as an act of war through either our bioterrorism laws or our war on drugs. This would give our military and national guards something productive to do as well, since if they were given the orders to protect us from these threats, they would be effective in working with the border patrol to eliminate them. This would open up many possibilities from land mines to gun ships in defending us from either criminals or acts of war.
