Why has the USA sent troops worldwide fighting wars, but we dont send them to our Mexian border?

If I lived in Texas I would be especially pissed. They come into our country illegally and kill and sell drugs. Why dont we take control?

  • We are the huge consumer of the drugs regretably but I agree, we should tighten security at our borders before more heads are cut off.

  • Because we have border control agents and as sad as it is, they are still getting through. We just don't have enough man power to cover the borders.

  • Because we have people at the top like Nancy Pelosi who thinks it's un American to have our own country or put our own citizens' interests first.

  • Because nobody didn't declare war in the Mexico/U.S border. You can't just send active military to secure the border. Homeland Security must deal with border problems not Department of Defense.

    Do your own research why we cant send military to secure the borders. It has absolutely nothing to do with liberals.Ask your husband ,he should no when he is military.

  • Didn't you hear, it's our fault for having such a hunger for drugs that this is happening anyway. Napolitano said so herself.
    We should be the ones punished. I'm pretty sure they will find a way to do it too.
