Mexico Border Crossings - The Victims

The real victims of illegal border crossings over the Mexico border to the U.S. are hundreds of migrants who die in the desert every year. The Los Angeles Times and others have reported that this number of deaths ranges from over a hundred to two hundred and more painful deaths every year despite the reduced number who actually attempt to cross in recent years.

The vast majority of these people are desperate family... more »

Border Security

Walls are outdated. Use drones.

The gentleman from Vermont might not have been entirely out of line today when he explained walls are "last century's technology". So use drones across the ~1800 miles of needed border. Specifically, an array of response drones could be enormously beneficial to CBP, ICE, and DHS in general.

Animal Reserves on Area in between Mexico and America

I think that one way to reduce the illegal entry of individuals on to America would be through designating the areas around the border wall as National Parks. This way would help turn the economy of that area into something positive such as visitors coming in to take the views and pay to access the parks. We could use the border area to house endangered animals; in this way if there is any illegal activity including the... more »
