La Frontera II

The president stated today that the U.S. military will patrol the border until the wall is built. This statement was made because of the thousands of people in one large group who are now crossing Mexico to reach the United States. A group based in San Diego called Countries without borders have organized what could be called an invasion of our country by those migrants seeking asylum. This action by the military will be the first time our country has used our armed forces in this manner. When one is desperate for a better life, borders will not work. These scenes are already taking place in Israel which is currently detaining thousands of African migrants so they can be deported back to any country in Africa willing to take them. For a price.

The lives of millions of people around the world continue to be disrupted by war, poverty, and the basic need for survival. It started in Syria then North Africa, and now our country. How things will turn is anybody’s guess. The one thing the migrants have in their favor is numbers. The Border Patrol has up to this point only had to deal with small groups of people. With the addition of the military, this will be a test of our government’s ability to protect the homeland. The world will be watching this one for sure.

I am a 64year old male. I live in California. I continute to blog as a way to give my opinion on things that I read about. I am a baby boomer and I feel that because of the life I have experienced, and the times we are living through the need to be examined with a critical eye. I feel this is my purpose in life. Live,learn, and comment. I will attempt to make this happen.
