Not all of the illegal invaders coming over the border are Mexican. Not all of the illegal invaders coming over the border are old to enough to even know what's happening to them. Not all of the illegal invaders coming over the border are looking to do Americans harm, nor are they carrying diseases or have gang affiliations. But every illegal invader has gained access through Mexico, and Mexico has allowed the attacks on our border.
It's clear. We are at war with Mexico.
Drug cartels have long since run amok and with abandon, driving further into US sovereign territory. Without regard for life - their own nor anyone else's - they threaten to kill ranchers and others who live on the border, telling them to look the other way when they engage their drug smuggling operations. more >>
Are the thousands of illegal immigrant kids housed in detention facilities happy and well fed -- or are they living in disease-infested compounds shrouded in secrecy?
Well, it depends on whom you ask.
The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) seems to think the children coming across the southern border are remarkably healthy.

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) explained that the House of Representatives will be suing President Barack Obama for attempting to circumvent Congress and push for laws through executive action. His comments come only days after Obama announced that he will not wait any longer for the House to act on immigration reform, and will fight for the issue on his own.
"Too often over the past five years, the President has circumvented the American people and their elected representatives through executive action, changing and creating his own laws, and excusing himself from enforcing statutes he is sworn to uphold – at times even boasting about his willingness to do it, as if daring the American people to stop him," Boehner wrote in an article for CNN on Sunday.
"That's why, later this month, we will bring legislation to the House floor that would authorize the House of Representatives to file suit in an effort to compel President Obama to follow his oath of office and faithfully execute the laws of our country." more >>

Texas Republican Gov. Rick Perry told members of the U.S. Homeland Security Committee Thursday afternoon that the illegal immigrants who've flooded the border since October must be sent back home.
Perry told committee members who toured a facility in McAllen and other centers in the state, where immigrants are being housed temporarily, that returning the children and adults who are entering the U.S. illegally will send a message to others to not embark on the dangerous and possibly deadly journey.
"Some may think that allowing them to stay here is the more humane option; I assure you it's not," Perry asserted. "Nobody is doing any of these children the slightest favor by delaying a rapid return to their countries of origin." more >>
