Mexico should be accountable


The answer to our problem of illegal immigrants coming across our Mexican border can be found in the principle behind recent retaliation by Israel in the Golan Heights.

Israeli Gen. Ben Reuven said that although rebels were probably behind the attack that killed an Israeli, the Israeli government is holding the Syrian government responsible for controlling what goes on in their territory.

We should hold the Mexican government responsible for permitting illegals to cross the border and threaten to close our border to its commercial goods. As a result, Mexican produce will rot at the border and Mexico won’t be able to export its poverty to the United States; and fewer Mexicans will be able to receive remittances sent back by Mexicans living in the United States.

Mexico should be responsible for controlling what goes on in its territory.

  • Declare war on ISIS

    The ISIS army, along with the other Islamic militants, have declared war on us by killing our citizens and threatening to kill more.

  • Too much coverage

    With 24-hour coverage of a St. Louis suburb and the shooting of a resident by police, we must get another 24-hour news channel. The Middle East is exploding. American citizens are at risk from brutal terrorists.

  • Black leadership void

    According to the interviews I have seen on television, Ferguson is 70 percent black and has no black elected officials. There are only three black officers in the 60-member police force.
