Somebody up there is getting paid off. A country that can walk into Afganistan, and almost wipe out Al Quiada, can't stop drug cartels and gangland members? The problem doesn't lie with illegals. It lies with the politicians. IMO a lot of people are getting a cut from the action. If I remember correctly, four or five years ago, a number of border patrol personnel were fired for being involved in a racket letting in illegals for cash. According to some sources- reliable because they are illegals themselves- a COYOTE gets around 5000+ for each customer. That money is paid up and down the line.
IMO a percentage goes to he cartels and the rest, no doubt, to corrupt cops/border patrol personnel and even more corrupt politicians. Why can't the immigration policy be fixed? Obviously, politicians and other power brokers do not want it fixed, since they have vested interests. The immigration bill tabled by the Senate, is supposedly, full of loopholes, . Yet we haven't heard why. Nor have we an alternative -as promised by them - to the one languishing in the House. RESULT : Stalemate and the usual pol. rhetoric while the border crisis keeps escalating.
