Now That Border is Allegedly Plugged, Aliens Sneak in On Water, Whine They Might Drown

By Debbie Schlussel
Now that our borders are supposedly plugged (and if you believe that, I have some land in the Arizona desert to sell you), smugglers are turning to the Gulf and Pacific to sneak in illegal aliens.
But some of ’em can’t swim. And the maritime smuggling route costs illegal aliens more. And that bothers alien activists, who are afraid illegal aliens might drown:

Fernando Garcia of the Border Network for Human Rights in El Paso says smugglers, who charge thousands of dollars to guide people across, will charge more, and more migrants will die navigating dangerous waters.

So sad, too bad. Attention, illegal aliens, here’s a tip: If you don’t want to drown, don’t come here.


Coast Guard Stops Water Coyote Operation

That’s the point of borders . . . to make it TOUGHER, not easier, to get in.
Predictably, the failed former INS chieftess, Doris Meissner, and some intellectual at a hifalutin’-sounding open borders think tank, are denouncing border enforcement, saying that aliens will simply find new ways to get in:

Illegal immigrants found new paths after a crackdown at the Southern California border in 1994, says Doris Meissner, then commissioner of the Immigration and Naturalization Service. She is a senior fellow at the Migration Policy Institute, a non-partisan think tank in Washington.
As a result of that earlier crackdown, illegal crossers started taking more dangerous routes through remote deserts and mountains, she says. “It has consistently been the experience that strengthening in one place leads to new places becoming pressure points,” she says. . . .
Wayne Cornelius, director of the Center for Comparative Immigration Studies at the University of California-San Diego, says dozens of smugglers’ boats have been captured or found abandoned in the past year.
“The increase in maritime people smuggling is already with us,” he says. Extra border fortification “is only deflecting migrant traffic into other modes of entry.”

I can only imagine a King or knight of old saying, “Gee, why should I have a moat and drawbridges, when interlopers are just going to swim my moats and try to get in that way? I should just give up, fill in the moat, put down the drawbridges, and let all my enemies invade my castle, while I die.”
That’s essentially what Meissner and Cornelius are saying–that we should just give up because they’ll keep trying to get in. Yup, and people are going to keep murdering and stealing. So we should just give up on making those illegal, too. Cracking down won’t help, right?

This is unacceptable! How can we maintain Law and Order under these conditions.
Punish the US companies that employ people and States that Harbor them. Then we canat least try and seal our borders

Reminds me of all the yelling & screaming about AIDS, bilking the taxpayers out of a fortune for AIDS research. If people avoided the behaviors that produce AIDS, we wouldn’t need to worry about AIDS. And if illegal immigrants stayed in their own countries, as you said, they wouldn’t drown.

The U.S. government efforts against illegal aliens, is like using band-aids on cancer. It’s been sporadic, feeble, weak, and a massive failure. The longer it takes to round up criminal aliens, the more legitimate they become. One way or the other, the SOBs will get amnesty!

My son is a BPA and he said it would make us sick if we knew how much is done/given to them before they’re sent back…..disgusting…. but our own government is to blame.

Hell, we should be sending them MORE boats and while they’re taking their cruise to the Land of Illegals Paradise, (USA), we should send out Police boats or Naval ships and blow them out of the water.

Agree! And, drowning is painful. Every illegal immigrant takes an average of $100,000 from our economy over a lifetime from govt handouts.
How do you calculate the cost of being a crime victim of an illegal who’s allowed to roam and devour what s/he can?
