Better border sense

I am flummoxed at this country's failure to understand the importance of having good neighbors and friendly borders.

We are one of the few nations in the world that have been lucky to have relative peace on our borders with our neighboring countries. I say “lucky” because we have not taken substantial action to ensure that these borders remain peaceful, especially to the south.

Our politicizing of immigration policy is foolish when it is, in fact, a national security issue.

We need to be doing everything we can to stabilize our borders, including juicing the Mexican economy and rewriting our immigration policy, to make sure that Mexico remains a healthy and thus peaceful southern neighbor.
