Another tragic loss of life. Our deepest condolences to the Nicholas J. Ivie family.

This border madness needs to end. Over 50% of the undocumented in the US are Mexican. Washington should sanction the Mexican government until they provide:

1. a decent living wage for Mexicans (greatly reducing the undocumented within the US).
2. a legitimate border patrol of their own to stop criminals and dope from coming North.

Washington should also end its participation in the failed Mexican drug war that has left some 60K to 110K Mexicans dead.

Did you know that the US is Mexico's number one trading partner (1.25 billion a day in cross border trade) ? Do you know what the largest retail store is in Mexico? How about that Mexico is our second largest supplier of oil? Google Mexico - US Department of State - Trade with Mexico, and click on the June 25, 2012 article.

The sad truth is that profit from trade, illegal drugs, illegal labor, and the border security complex are more important to the bi-national 1% than the lives of USBP Agents. Profit from that trade is also more important to the bi-national 1% than then the lives of the non-criminal undocumented who die coming North to find work.
