An attack on our southern border

Fortunately no one was hurt, but the minimal reporting thus far has this appearing to be a probe of sorts.

Guardsmen overrun at the Border

A U.S. Border Patrol entry Identification Team site was overrun Wednesday night along Arizona's border with Mexico.

According to the Border Patrol, an unknown number of gunmen attacked the site in the state's West Desert Region around 11 p.m. The site is manned by National Guardsmen. Those guardsmen were forced to retreat.

I would say it's time to up man and up armor our forces on the southern border.

The Border Patrol will not say whether shots were fired. However, no Guardsmen were injured in the incident.

That seems odd. If they weren't, I would think they would say so. Are they trying to avoid additional controversy? Of course that's a rhetorical question as it's obvious that armed and violent breaches of our border would enrage many Americans, and rightfully so. I doubt the open border types would care for that.

The Border Patrol says the incident occurred somewhere along the 120 mile section of the border between Nogales and Lukeville. The area is known as a drug corridor. Last year, 124-thousand pounds of illegal drugs were confiscated in this area.

Time to build a wall and get serious about securing our borders.

The Border patrol says the attackers quickly retreated back into Mexico.

This time, but what was intended or what future plans may be in the making are currently unknown. It is certainly obvious that Mexico doesn't care about fixing the problems on it's side. The issues ranging from economic dysfunction that encourages people to risk their lives to work here, to government and societal corruption that aides drug trafficking. There have even been some reports indicating that help is provided by the Mexican military.

Compassion is a poor substitute for common sense and actually applying meaningful resources that will secure our border and improve our national security. Not only that, but such would also improve the quality of life for Americans who live near the border. They deserve better than this, our border patrol and our national guard troops deserve better than this. Unfortunately, the new Congress will most certainly go at least as far as President Bush with his less than perfect plan regarding our southern border and illegal immigration. Even worse, they may take things further, not realizing the folly of their bleeding hearts surpassing common sense and the importance of national security.
