    America’s porous southern border and the recent surge in illegal immigration is more than just a “humanitarian crisis,” claims the top U.S. general in charge of Central and South America, it’s a threat to the United States’ very existence.


    Marine Corps Gen. John Kelly is commander of the U.S. Southern Command, or SOUTHCOM, charged with responsibility for the Caribbean Sea and all lands south of Mexico.

    Particularly in regards to the drug trade, murder rates and terrorist activity brewing in Central America, Kelly says, the waves of Latin Americans sweeping through Mexico and illegally into Texas presents a threat to the U.S. every bit as serious as Iran or North Korea.

    “In comparison to other global threats, the near collapse of societies in [this] hemisphere with the associated drug and [illegal immigrant] flow are frequently viewed to be of low importance,” Kelly said in an interview with Defense One. “Many argue these threats are not existential and do not challenge our national security. I disagree.

    The super rich in Old Mexico and other parts of Latin America export their problems to the USA in order to preserve their corrupt domain. The older generation of Mexicans loved the USA and hated Mexico, as they were refugees of the revolution and the ensuing decades of one-party rule.

    It seems to me that the USA should consider lowering the minimum wage in order to find jobs for all of our new workers as well as the millions of unemployed Americans.

    The border problem is a symptom of the real problem: we are a nation of drug addicts--legal and illegal. As long as narcotics is a major commodity in the world, the border situation probably will get worse.

    We are doing poorly at drug interdiction. There are so many in high places who are bought off. Love of money is the root of all evil.

    As a country, and individually, we are reaping what we have sowed in the past 238 years.

    Solution: repentance, humility, prayer, sackcloth and ashes to Jehovah; all of which are completely alien to our narcissistic society. We have a form of godliness but deny the power thereof.

    Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

    Have a blessed day.

    Isn't it funny how the liberal media fails to pick up on this story, the real unemployment rate, etc., etc., etc.? You'd think someone was telling them what to report.

    Hm.

    Yes, but cheap labor is also part of the problem because the border has been open for 100 years, long before drug addiction became so high in this country. People fled the bloodbath of Mexican bandits such as Pancho Villa and then they fled the socialistic government of the PRI. Catholic Latin America thinks that Protestants should pay for their collapsed states in Europe and in Central and South America. Do you think that the Mexican wealthy are going to provide for their destitute or tackle their squalor?

    Article Four, Section Four of the U.S. Constitution makes provision for the various state legislatures to request the U.S. government take action to secure their borders with foreign nations. It is time these legislatures stopped posturing and actually take a vote to do so.

    When this administration refuses to do so or ignores the requests, they will be in direct violation of constitutional provisions that fall under that is under the direct purview of the government, and be guilty of failure to taken constitutionally required action.
