Timmy McVeigh & the Mexican Wall Climbers

Kris W. Kobach, a professor of law at UMKC, told a rally that he wanted a 2,000 mile wall built on the U.S.-Mexico border. He did not say if he would favor undocumented illegals working on the construction of the wall from the Mexican side.

Kobach, a losing 2004 Congressional candidate and former advisor on immigration to Attorney General John Ashcroft, has long pursued immigration enforcement:
Our borders are our most important line of defense in protecting the U.S. against another terrorist attack he said in 2004. Our enemy's platoons in the war against terrorism do not wear uniforms of camouflage green
Whilst not having to climb the wall to enter the US, homegrown terrorists born in the U.S., and Islamists from the Middle East entering through airports, would know the U.S. is very serious about illegal immigration and terrorism once they heard about the wall.

In 1986, the terrorist Mahmud "The Red" Abouhalima fraudulently got amnesty as a seasonal agricultural worker in a uniform of camouflage green (in fact, he was a New York cabbie). That status allowed him to travel to Afghanistan for terrorist training - which he later used as a 1993 bomber of the World Trade Center. A wall to keep Mexicans out of the U.S. could have prevented this attack.

If we started enforcing the laws against employing illegals, that would go a long way toward halting illegal immigration, said Dick Minneny of Blue Springs, though he didn't say if it would go as long as 2,000 miles.

One protester’s sign read: Break our laws. Shame on you. Don’t enforce the border. Shame on us. The protester was too ashamed to give his name.

Kind Stever of Overland Park said he had never attended any type of political rally but as a patriotic American he wanted to attend Monday’s rally. And then he said This land is a land of laws, sounding like Woody Guthrie. We can’t afford, as a nation, for any of our laws to go unnoticed (when broken). Our senators and congressmen are not enforcing the law. The nation did not notice at what speed he drove back to Overland Park.

Tina Turner of Clay County came to the rally wearing a T-shirt that read America is still the best. She said she thinks more jobs could be given to Americans who are on welfare rather than to undocumented immigrants, though she had no documentation to back this up.

Sorri Matthew of Lenexa stood holding a large American flag made in Mexico. He said he is against illegal immigration because he and his wife spent two years apart so she could come to the United States legally from the Dominican Republic, and he feels others should have to spend a miserable two years apart, too.

A man in a Legalize the Irish t-shirt was seen trying to persuade the crowd to demand the wall be 8,000 miles long, but he was dismissed as a stereotype.

We need more Kris Kobachs. Have we legalized cloning yet? It seems the financial drain illegals create would be enough to put an end to illegal immigration.... but not legal immigration. If it takes an army guarding the border and firing on illegal crossers or a wall or whatever.... just do it. Is 10-20 million illegals not enough? Would 20-40 million be better? Maybe 60-100 million illegals. Before long we'll have to go to Mexico to be around more Americans!

What have they been doing with all of the land mines they have been digging up over the years as a result of the hard work of the late and great Princess Diana? Why don't we bury loads of them along the southern border? US employers might not hire illegal immigrants with missing limbs.

You certainly do need a lot more Kris Kobachs if you want his rallies to be anywhere near the size of the rallies he's rallying against.

Nice to be concerned about the legalization of cloning though, anon1.

And look anonymous 1, anonymous 2 wants to increase your financial burden by having the healthcare system shell out for artifical limbs.

I guess the financial burden the illegal immigrants create is not that bad. $70,000,000,000 divided by 150,000,000 tax payers is only ??? per tax payer? Shite! My calculator does not go that high! I think that is only around $50 per tax payer per year. Not bad. Can anybody help out with this calculation?

An idea... maybe the IRS, for next year, could include a check box on the 1040 tax return form whereas taxpayers could elect to contribute $50 to a fund to offset the $70,000,000,000 tax burden created by illegal immigrants each year. This would offer taxpayers a "choice" as to contribute voluntarily instead of automatically sticking us with the bill. I wonder how many taxpayers would select this option? Would you?

You appear to have documented the undocumented.
