ChipNASA: FSCK MEXICO, Central America, South America, the Caribbean, Terrorists etc. -We need this. And it's not just Mexicans, it's ANYBODY that's trying to cross our southern border. (I know this isn't perfect either but it's better than what we have NOW![media.news.de image 512x340][3.bp.blogspot.com image 500x300]
fickenchucker: Laugh it up, non-Arizona residents.We have friends and relatives in Tucson who are scared shiatless about the encroaching crime. Nogales is under siege financially because of the lost tourism resulting from the insanely-increased crime rates.America deserves better from all the politicians and a DMZ at our southern border.
BSABSVR: How will Romney make it safer to be a border patrol agent, exactly?
James!How come Arizona is a war zone but California,
I drunk what: EdNortonsTwin: An armed U.S. National Guard -- how does it work?how about we just take all the soldiers we have in the middle east and just relocate them to the mexican border?they are already trained for the climate, if we are gunna piss away billions how about we do it to protect our own borders?i love politics
mark.jms: I really don't know what the big deal with this F&F thing is.I have it from the brightest minds that guns don't kill people, people kill people.So these agents would have been shot irregardless of the provenience of the gun they carried.
m2313: But keep supporting the party that's weak on defense, unless you're some kind of "rugged independent".
James!: Tucson has a pretty liberal sheriff if I recall corectly.
canyoneer: By 1918 the Yaqui people had been at war with Mexico for several years, the former hoping to establish an independent state in Sonora, centered around the Rio Yaqui and its confluence with the Gulf of California. Many Yaquis were driven north by the war and some crossed the Arizona border to work in Tucson's citrus groves. After receiving pay, the Yaquis would spend their money on weapons and ammunition and then return to Mexico to continue fighting. The fact that Yaquis were buying arms in Arizona and smuggling them across the border became so well known that the military governor of Sonora, General Plutarco Elías Calles, informally requested help from the United States government in dealing with the problem. Furthermore, Arizona ranchers began reporting in larger numbers their encounters with armed Yaquis on their ranch land or the finding of butchered livestock on the range. Since the United States Border Patrol did not yet exist, the task of protecting the border was that of the army, which operated out of Fort Huachuca. The Nogales, Arizona subdistrict commander, Colonel J.C. Friers, 35th Infantry, responded to the reports by issuing orders to increase patrolling in the area. American forces in the area included the 35th Infantry Regiment, stationed at Camp Stephen D. Little in Nogales, and the 10th Cavalry Buffalo Soldiers, who were spread out to protect the various towns near the international border. A squadron size force from the 10th Cavalry was encamped about a half mile from the 35th Infantry at Nogales and a second squadron split up to occupy Lochiel and Campini. Smaller posts were also established at Arivaca and Oro Blanco and, finally, a troop of about thirty men maintained a camp at Atascosa Canyon, a "strategic natural crossing" within Bear Valley.According to Colonel Harold B. Wharfield, who interviewed some of the participants in the Bear Valley fight and published his story in the book Tenth Cavalry and Border Fights, wrote that the camp ...

EdNortonsTwin: My Father knows a rancher up in Oregon who had a Mexican foreman running things for him. We'll call him Juan. Juan did well for himself and the immigrantes that worked for him. Juan eventually bought a ranch of his own in Mex and paid the people that worked and lived on it a descent living wage - things were good for everyone -- for awhile. Not a long time later Juan was confronted by other ranchers in the region who told him they would kill him if he din't start paying his workers the same meager wages that they were paying their hacienda workers.

Itstoearly: I can always count of liberal farktards, especially those here on Fark, to respond to a tragic event by mocking people (in this case, Romney/Republicans), who have nothing to do with it. In their make-believe land, nothing is important except making fun of those who disagree with them, because that's all they can do. They are too stupid to actually debate opposing point of views, and that scares them and makes them feel insecure, so they lash out. And this is proven again, and again, and again, in just about every fark thread.

Lost Thought 00: CygnusDarius: Lost Thought 00: This wouldn't be a problem if we threw out all the Mexicans and adopted a shoot-to-kill policy for anyone who approaches our bordersEven Americans of Mexican heritage?.If they are brown, flush them down. We can't take any chances of their disease spreading through this country
MattyFridays: Not to mention the fact that you're an idiot for talking about a Sheriff that is HOURS away from Bisbee and Tucson, but how exactly is a Sheriff that is TOUGH on crime and immigration "bringing it upon himself"?
