Going over the same ground, time and time again and again is really wearing me out. Using the "long war" strategy to tire out the opposition while never actually winning a battle is smart, I'll give you that.
Anyway, If I were the head of Al Quiedea and one of my lieutenants came up with a plan to infiltrate the US by way of the Mexican border, I'd cut his head off myself. He's too stupid to be of any use. Yes, with a trained and determined team we could easy cross that way, in spite of your silly fence (mines and machine guns) but it is too expensive and risky.
My first plan would be to use the internet to incite US citizens to launch homegrown jihad. It is low yield but the cost and risk are zero. Secondly I would use the internet to recruit US citizens to travel to my training camps around the world, then send them back with their citizenship in tact and the ability to deliver a harder blow on US soil. Once I'd run those options down, I would simply have my operatives obtain visas as students, businessmen or even refugees and enter with legal documentation. Our Saudi financiers can afford it. There are plenty of guns, chemicals, and box cutters lying around in the US that my cells can put to use. Lastly, if I was really desperate and had no other options, I'd simply have my cells hike or canoe across the Canadian border unchecked.
Until you and the other xenophobes call for the fortification of the Canadian border, I will continue to call out the BS of your position. This is not about keeping terrorists out. This is not about keeping immigrants out. This is about keeping Latin Americans out. I'm being generous by calling it xenophobia. Remember that is the irrational fear of outsiders. There is another name for the irrational fear and hatred of other races/ethnicity. Again, I assume nothing about you but there are red flags.
I don't think every immigrant is innocent. That's just silly. But to consider every immigrant to be a drug kingpin or terrorist is like claiming that the haystack is worthless because there might be a needle in it.
