U.S.-Mexican Border Security?


Read this story about how some obviously resourceful and well-financed drug smugglers were able to construct a

"tunnel . . . 60 feet below ground at some points, five feet high, and nearly half a mile long, extending from a warehouse near the international airport in Tijuana, Mexico, to a vacant industrial building in Otay Mesa, Calif., about 20 miles southeast of downtown San Diego."
A photo of the tunnel is at left. It's about a half-mile long.

Then read this one about the discovery and dismantling of

"a false passport ring with links to al-Qaida and Hamas militants . . . Colombian officials said the gang allegedly supplied an unknown number of citizens from Pakistan, Jordan, Iraq, Egypt and other countries with false passports and Colombian nationality without them ever setting foot in the country."
I think we should be worried about the border. And I wonder, along with Hugh Hewitt, "will the left object if NSA listens without a warrant if one of [the people who did these things] happens to be in the United States?"

Of course the answer to Hugh's question is, "yes." For the left, even if Pres. Bush does something right, it has to be wrong. A young Democrat in my office (who is active in party affairs, even) despairs over the effects of the fog of hate from the left that manages only to alienate truly "mainstream" America (not the one that Ted Kennedy seems to find somewhere in the middle of the editorial pages of the New York Times) from the Democrats and ultimately their candidates. May their myopia continue unabated--at least if we can rein in the courts.

Looks like the fence a lot of people want is going to be about as useful as the Maginot Line.
