  1. Thanks for doing your part in keeping this MOST important threat to our security in the news. It seems to’ve been put on the ‘back burner’ of Congress…..again.

    These Ports of Entries are not only the gateway to our country, but the doors of our homes (the ones we lock)
    Also interesting is that Texas Govenor said today that the three ‘hot spots’ COVID is rising are all Border Ports…. One can only start to imagine what is ‘getting through’ at unguarded areas.

    I am not imune to the conditions that motivate so many to ‘escape’ their homeland but pragmatically speaking we are religating our own way of life to the bottom of the pecking order. When we surrender our language, customs, and allow our law to be used to wipe rears with…we lose sovereignity and our nation. Diversity only means variety to enhance our country and not intended to dominate.

    How many people can be honest and say they don’t know the drugs are killing our citizens? None! And yet few seems to ‘bother’… glad you do
