    Illegal Immigration Enforcement Poll

    Who should decide on how to handle illegal immigration. The State or the Federal goverment?

    The old sheriff was attending an awards dinner when a lady commented
    on his wearing his sidearm. "Sheriff, I see you have your pistol. Are you
    expecting trouble?" "No Ma'am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have
    brought my rifle."
    (just stole this one hope you don't mind)


    The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant,
    it is just that they know so much that isn't so.

    Since one of the two government entities you mentioned is in control of it now, but refuses to enforce the law? Laws, by the way, that the heads of agencies and elected officials swore an oath to enforce. We are quickly moving away from a country based on the rule of law and toward a country based on politics, political considerations, and elections from a party perspective. Fold up my tin foil hat if you wish, but that is the beginning of the end of the Republic.

    The feds should enforce the national borders. The state should be able to enforce who is allowed in their sovereign territories.

    I'll go with this.

    Depends if it is a presidential election year or not.

    I wish. Unfortunately, it doesn't even matter what party is in control on this issue. To quote George Washington's farewell address:

    “However [political parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.”
    ― George Washington

    I think the military should be charged with the task of defending our Nation. Give them the equipment and the OK to use it. I bet our military can handle the border just fine. It would be nice to see the military used for national defense as it was designed.

    PS, I will enforce my own rules on my property.

    I'm all for small government as far as the feds go, and more power to the individual states. The military could get a handle on the border situation in about a week, I'd bet on it. This should be priority #1 in my opinion. Cornfed, I couldn't agree with you more... I too will enforce my own rules on my property.
