Glenn Spencer -- American Border Patrol -- September 2, 2015   
"If you can't measure it, you can't improve it." -- Peter Drucker
    Americans have been promised a secure border for decades. Some say it is secure enough, others say it is not.
    In Fiscal Year 2014 the U.S. Border Patrol apprehended 479,371 people trying to cross our southern border illegally.
    If we caught one in three in FY 2014, 1,452.629 people crossed the border illegally, and 973,268 made it passed the Border Patrol.
    Is a border that is crossed illegally by nearly one million people is secure?
Trump on Border: We'll Call It "The Great Wall Of Trump"
DONALD TRUMP: You know, interestingly, the wall on southern border, it's --- really, if you think it's 1,000 miles but it's 2,000 miles, but a lot of it --- some of it's done --- it's done poorly by the way, what they have done is very poor, very poor work, a very poor job, and very --- not much of a wall. But you also have natural terrain which is automatically a barrier, which is a good thing. So you're talking about 1,000.
    Donald Trump says he would build a 1,000-mile wall on the 2,000-mile border because “some of it's done.”
    According to Wikipedia: "As of August 29, 2008, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security had built 190 miles (310 km) of pedestrian border fence and 154.3 miles (248.3 km) of vehicle border fence, for a total of 344.3 miles (554.1 km) of fence.
    As shown in a survey by American Border Patrol, most of the pedestrian border fence consists of single-layered mesh-type construction.
    When done properly such as in San Diego and Yuma fencing has cut apprehensions by more than 90%. The problem is - very little of the existing fence can do the job.
    The border between El Paso and San Diego runs about 700 miles, of which there are about 30 miles of double-layered fence as specified in the Secure Fence Act of 2006.
    How much of the remaining 670 miles would Mr. Trump proposes for effective fencing? And, what is “effective”?
    Then there is Texas --- it has 1,254 miles of border with Mexico, but only about 120 of fencing has been installed (much of it useless). Unlike the rest of that border, most of the Texas border land is private --- and then there is the Rio Grande River. (There is a way to use the Rio Grande levee system to solve this problem.)
    How is Mr. Trump going to decide where to build his 1,000 - mile wall? Clearly many areas will be left with no wall at all.
    I would suggest that Mr. Trump apply a lesson from management guru Peter Drucker who said, “If you can't measure it, you can't improve it.”
    Mr. Trump, or anyone else who promises border security to get votes, should be honest with the American people. Specific goals should be set and a border accounting system installed to measure success. How those goals are achieved --- by walls, moats filled with alligators --- or modern drones --- should be based on sound economics, the environment and morality. Mr. Trump says much of the existing fence was done “poorly.” He needs to define what good is.

Immigration Letters From Around the Country  
Jeb Bush (presidential candidate...Ha!) said Americans need to work longer hours to jump start the economy. What a joke. Statistics show Americans work an average of 47 hours a week. When they can find a job. -- There aren't jobs for Americans because all the illegal immigrants have them. They send their money back home to wives and families in their home country. They don't pay taxes here so they aren't boosting our economy, but their money boosts their homelands. They don't spend their pay here because they get everything free........

Please have a little sympathy for the liberal media. They are having trouble writing about the issue of illegal immigration. If they interview Americans, most of them will be against it. They can interview illegal aliens, especially children who sound like they have words put in their mouths, but that kind of propaganda goes only so far.

Poll reveals huge majority support mandatory deporting of illegals 
The headline from Investor’s Business Daily on their own poll uses the word “shock” --- “Shock Poll: 59% Back Trump On Deportation of Illegals.” But as Jared Peterson wrote on these pages yesterday, for the last two years, Rasmussen polling has demonstrated a huge gap between the overwhelming majority of Americans and the political establishment of the GOP on immigration policy. The IBD polling, which mentions mandatory deportation, reinforces this stunning disconnect between politicians and the people they supposedly serve, a chasm that Donald Trump has spotted and used to his huge advantage...

Bush's "BorderGate"?
Speaking to a crowd at a Florida rally, Jeb Bush said that Donald Trumps plans for a border wall are ‘not practical'. “You can't build a wall and solve this problem in our part of the country. The terrain is too rugged, you'd have to keep American citizens on the other side of the wall, and you couldn't access the river, which is part of the economic driver of the community, it is an agricultural community, they need to have access to the water. And it's not a feasible to build a wall, but it is a simple solution.” -- Is Jeb Bush aware that fencing was installed atop levees near McAllen, but that gates that were designed to give people access to the river were never installed by Barack Obama? -- If he isn't aware of the real situation on the border, Donald Trump can correct him. If he knows the true situation and won't tell the people, then we have a cover-up: Bush's BorderGate.

I've cited the reluctance of the MSN, and even local news, to honestly inform Americans about the many crimes committed by illegal immigrants......

You weren't called.” Ramos continued, and Trump repeatedly told him, “Sit down.”.....

Ted Cruz Explains Why He Once Said It Was A 'Mistake' To Focus On Ending Birthright Citizenship 
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) on Friday defended his 2011 comments in which he said that it was a "mistake" for conservatives to focus on ending birthright citizenship guaranteed by the 14th Amendment for children of undocumented immigrants. Cruz's recent remarks came after he said on Wednesday that the United States should do just that. -- "In 2011, and today, I said we should end birthright citizenship because it doesn't make sense as a policy matter, to be incentivizing and encouraging illegal immigration," Cruz told The Huffington Post on Friday......

Reconquista: Mexico fights for rights of 'anchor babies' 
Mexican cultural imperialists and their leftist allies have long dreamed of a Reconquista --- retaking America's Southwest on behalf of Mexico. They have sought for decades to use illegal immigration and birthright citizenship to remake a vast corner of America --- Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California --- in the image of Mexico. -- Now, a court battle is heating up in Texas that revolves around a Texas agency's refusal to grant birth certificates to illegal immigrants with children born in Texas......

Trump Reaching Blacks on Immigration 
It's easy to know when liberals are beginning to worry about a Republican's political message resonating with the people. If you are black they call you an “Uncle Tom” and if white a “Racist.” -- And so it is with Donald Trump and his message on illegal immigration. It --- and not-so subtle liberal elitist anti-south bigotry --- was on full display last week in media reports on his appearance before a campaign record crowd of 30,000 in Mobile, Alabama......

How Donald Trump's name wound up on a plane flying over the Mexican border 
Years ago, an engineer named Glenn Spencer bought a little compound on the U.S.-Mexico border from an Arizona farmer who was tired of the drug cartels' shoot-outs spilling onto his land.

Trump "anchors" his lead on immigration 
This week's catch phrase “anchor baby” is not new. In 2009 this reporter wrote about a ballot measure, the “California Taxpayer Protection Act,” that sought to eliminate birthright citizenship when both parents were illegally in the country. It failed to catch fire in the navy blue golden state, but its premise appears to be making a comeback in the 2016 election cycle. -- An exchange between presidential hopeful Donald Trump and ABC Good Morning America reporter Tom Llamas highlighted the media's interpretation of the term anchor baby. .....

Prosecutors: Boys taken from US custody, put to work at farm 
The thousand-mile journey to the Texas border was supposed to bring the Guatemalan teenagers to a better life.

Donald Trump's immigration comments don't seem to be hurting Republicans --- yet
Donald Trump — businessman, raconteur, fiery immigration hardliner --- has repeatedly insisted that he will win the Hispanic vote once granted the Republican nomination next year. His argument is usually two-fold: one, he'll bring jobs and, two, a poll showed him leading among Hispanics in Nevada. The Nevada poll has a Trump-Tower-sized margin of error. And the idea that Hispanic voters will flock to the candidate who would have us assume that immigrants from Mexico are more likely criminals than not seems iffy......
