On June 10th Chertoff referred to the increasing violence along the border as a “good sign” indicating that the tightened security on our southern border is working. If tightened security is working, how did three members of the Mexican military manage to kill a rival drug cartel member in Phoenix? Is this tightening security slowing the flood of illegals into this country? Unlikely. And in view of the increasing violence, how soon before some administration or State Department hack starts granting these newly arrived illegals refugee status? And given the fact that the flow of illegal aliens has remained constant, need we accept the 12-million-illegal-aliens-in-America number that Bush gave us two years ago? Are we to believe that the number of illegals traveling south is equal to the number entering the United States?
