  1. WOW ! These guys/gals are beton fantastic !!!! They are proteting the gateway to our HOMEland day and night with little or no recognition and very modest pay. And have gone to funerals of fallen agents.

    To all of the anti-wall, open border I ask, “WHICH OF YOU WOULD WELCOME THIS LOAD OF DRUGS INTO YOUR OWN HOME? You know, the one that has a lock on the door and fenced yard? Do you stop and help the adict on the street or come to aid of law enforcement being shot at? ”

    We must excert every effort to BAN THE DRUGS AND THUGS or prepare to flush all that makes us exceptional down the toilet.

    Pay close attention to the state and local elections as well as the Federal candidates. VOTE FOR AMERICA
