"A wise and frugal government which shall restrain men
from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government."
(Thomas Jefferson)

Herman Cain: We Need to Secure the Border with Technology and Guns

Cain is 100% correct about the need to secure the border.  Yesterday when Obama visited El Paso, he obviously didn't see all the tall fencing with concertina wire and guard houses located on the border between the Mexican city of Juarez and El Paso.  If he had, he would be calling for that along the border as it works.  Crime in El Paso dropped significantly when the fence and added security was installed to keep the drug crime on the Mexican side of the border.  Fences work well but Obama has stopped the fence building.

Workers who have jobs in El Paso come across the border every day at the main crossing but Americans are discouraged from entering Juarez because of the high amount of crime.  When is Mexico going to clean up the drug cartels?  There is no immigration reform as long as we don't have secure borders -- without that no reform will work.
