If Obama wants to create 3 million jobs why not start by finishing the Border Fences that were started?

I’m sure some Americans would volunteer for free to stop Drugs-Heroin and Crystal Meth that are coming across the Mexican border.Others That are displaced workers could take this as a Job to hold them over until Obama waves his Magic Wand and provides all the Hope and Change he promised.All the government has to do is provide the Material for the fence, Am I Right,or Wrong?
Does the US Government really want to stop those drugs that are dumbing down the Nation?
BTW -stopping the illegals by itself would free up that many jobs that already exist.
Panda you usually have a good reply.However I find this one stands on shaky ground.irrelevant.totally irrelevant

  1. The Great Wall of China didn’t stop Mongol invaders, and you think this one would stop drug traffic? Throwing good money after bad.

  2. How ironic that conservative Republicans want to build walls or fences between our international borders . . . reminds me of another place and time when a real wall divided a city and a cold war split nations. So much for letting freedom ring.
    “Behind me stands a wall that encircles the free sectors of this city, part of a vast system of barriers that divides the entire continent of Europe. From the Baltic, south, those barriers cut across Germany in a gash of barbed wire, concrete, dog runs, and guard towers. Farther south, there may be no visible, no obvious wall. But there remain armed guards and checkpoints all the same–still a restriction on the right to travel, still an instrument to impose upon ordinary men and women the will of a totalitarian state. Yet it is here in Berlin where the wall emerges most clearly; here, cutting across your city, where the news photo and the television screen have imprinted this brutal division of a continent upon the mind of the world. Standing before the Brandenburg Gate, every man is a German, separated from his fellow men. Every man is a Berliner, forced to look upon a scar.
    President von Weizsacker has said, “The German question is open as long as the Brandenburg Gate is closed.” Today I say: As long as the gate is closed, as long as this scar of a wall is permitted to stand, it is not the German question alone that remains open, but the question of freedom for all mankind. Yet I do not come here to lament. For I find in Berlin a message of hope, even in the shadow of this wall, a message of triumph.
    General Secretary Gorbachev, if you seek peace, if you seek prosperity for the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, if you seek liberalization: Come here to this gate! Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate! Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall! – Speech given by President Ronald Reagan”

    Perhaps than a better solution in terms of 3 million new jobs would be if Obama approved a measure to tear down the existing barriers between our nations.

  3. I saw yesterday that he is going to hire a ton of people for Border control. (not sure the exact number) Maybe they will finish the wall. ? That would be a good thing.

  4. Your right, I agree that closing the border would help stop some of the illegal drugs and workers from coming over the border.
    But you still would have to round up all the illegals in the united states, that would help jobs by hiring and training more immigration workers.
    If the government would impose trade embargoes and tourist embargoes against Mexico they would think about helping to control illegal immigrants.
    The way it is now they simply empty their jails and point them towards the border.
    You can not blame Mexicans for wanting a better life, but they could do it legally,We do need immigrants to work lets face it American kids these days do not want to do menial and physical labor.
    If enough pressure was applied to Mexico , we could set up a better system to allow for legal immigrants to come into the United States for work visas.
    I am afraid that now if Obama was to generate a lot of jobs on the interstate system and intrastructure, it would be Mexicans filling those jobs.
    As far as drugs are concerned if they do not come thru Mexico they will come from our other borders, drug shipments thru florida have soared, They say interstate 10 is the major drug transport system for illegal drugs. We could use additional law enforement and security on our highways.
    good question Write Your Congressman, We the people have to put pressure on our government to get things done.

  5. Why not put a three mile dead zone at the open areas of the border with shoot to kill anything that moves and install land mines.
    We need to get way more aggressive in protecting out country.

  6. Actually, I know of ONE new job he has created. Today on the news: Obama has created a NEW CABINET POST; one more person to “oversee” what all the other cabinet members and committees are doing.
    Just what we need: Another well-paid, well-insured, lifetime benefits, do nothing administrative hanger on.
    To your question: You are correct. People who do not live in border states and who are not inundated with illegals do not seem to understand: these people are not aspiring to America’s standard of living. Instead, they are reducing Americans to their lower standard of living by usurping jobs and resources, costing us tax money, and clogging our justice systems.
