File this one under, are you serious!
US federal officials plan on creating a self serve border crossing between the US and Mexico. That is correct, an unmanned border crossing with Mexico. It is supposed to improve security, because agents will be monitoring things from 100 miles away. Who’s brilliant idea was this? The United States already has a problem with Mexicans illegally crossing into America so now we are going to create an EZ Pass for them to do so. Oh but wait, we will monitor it from 100′s of miles away so when we see something go wrong, what will be the response time?
This hardly seems a time the U.S. would be willing to allow people to cross the border legally from Mexico without a customs officer in sight. But in this rugged, remote West Texas terrain where wading across the shallow Rio Grande undetected is all too easy, federal authorities are touting a proposal to open an unmanned port of entry as a security upgrade.
By the spring, kiosks could open up in Big Bend National Park allowing people from the tiny Mexican town of Boquillas del Carmen to scan their identity documents and talk to a customs officer in another location, at least 100 miles away.
The crossing, which would be the nation’s first such port of entry with Mexico, has sparked opposition from some who see it as counterintuitive in these days of heightened border security.
Good grief, why don’t we just give them free “Fast & Furious” guns too while they cross through the self-serve kiosk? As the Lonely Conservative opines, what could possibly go wrong? What other moronic ideas could possibly come from the Obama administration?
