Three National Guardsmen were arrested this week for arranging the smuggling of Mexicans across the border. They pocketed big bucks, at the expense of American security. They found 24 Mexicans in the van when one of the Guardsmen was arrested. Is this where circuses get those clowns they stuff into small cars?

Let's take a look at the names of the Guardsmen: Rodrigo Torres, Julio Cesar Pacheco and Clarence Hodge Jr. Well, two out of three ain't bad. It's safe to assume that the first two are Hispanic – most likely Mexican. Let's see ... if we do, in fact, have an invasion going on here, just what would call a federal officer who aids the invasion force?

This case just goes to show that borer security should be the number one issue. Forget amnesty, guest-worker programs, Z-visas, blah blah blah ... we can't even control our current border situation. Close the borders. And make sure that you do it properly by employing U.S. citizens. If those citizens are sympathetic to the Mexicans' cause? Fine. But in the end, you have a job to do. And if you don't do it properly then you should be fired.

As for these men ... send them to jail. Make them sit there and realize that U.S. border security is not to be compromised. They have made our agents who do believe in the rule of law, look like fools. Instead of getting free time in jail, they should have to go to the border and pick up the millions of pounds of trash their Mexican compadres leave behind as they head to Houston, Atlanta .. wherever..

While I can't be too optimistic, maybe this will be another wakeup call for the American people. Don't let Bush get away with this amnesty bill. We clearly need to focus on border security.
