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.
