Profit Is Made From The Perpetual Fight Not In Winning The War

In response:

As someone who as worked as a US Border Patrol/INS/ICE agent I say the corrupted and moneyed elite who run the US and Mexican governments will never allow our southern border to be so "secure" that people and drugs do not make it through.

The financial setup between the two groups guarantee bi-national profit from undocumented labor, remittances, illicit drug industries, border security industries, arms sales, political capital, Mexican oil and NAFTA trade. 

Common, hard working, honest citizens on both sides of the border pay the price of the insidious two-way rip-off.  Step back and take an honest look at our forty-year plus failed drug war or our continuous military wars.  Illegal immigration is very similar.  Profit is made in the perpetual fight; not in winning the war or coming up with a solution that solves the problem.
