What Does It Take To Get Washington’s Attention On The Border?

You want to get their attention? Speaking from the perspective of a retired US Border Patrol/INS/ICE agent, consider a bi-national occupy the border project.

One billion dollars in trade crosses the border daily. Don’t forget who still needs, uses, and profits from Mexican oil and Mexican drugs.

The bi-national 1% profit while the majority of good citizens on both sides of the border suffer. US citizens lose jobs and foot the bills for the medical and educational expenses of the undocumented. Many Mexicans choose to go north because the Mexican federal minimum wage is about 62.5 US cents per hour (5 US bucks a day). Tell me, what the heck would you do?

This immigration fiasco and drug war are set ups by the 1%. They rake in the money and uses propaganda to stereotype the symptom, not the cause. The cause is their own insidious greed.

I say peacefully and legally occupy the border. Hit them where it hurts them most; bi-national trade and political correctness.

At the same time advocate for all Mexican victims of the failed US backed drug war (40 to 60 thousand killed so far) on both sides of the border to apply for US asylum as a persecuted drug war group.

Use our freedom of speech and US asylum laws to embarrass both governments world wide.

Get their attention by using non-violent, legal measures – the scope of which they have never seen before.
