LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Border porous for obvious reason

- The Washington Times - Thursday, May 9, 2013

On Sept. 10, 2001, I was on the Mexico-United States border at Naco Station near Tucson, Ariz. I saw miles and miles of unprotected border with the occasional lone agent driving by. What little fencing there was had major holes cut open, allowing illegal immigrants easy access.

I spoke with ranchers who said they had pleaded with their members of Congress, including Sen. John McCain, Arizona Republican, to protect them against a never-ending stream of illegal immigrants. They were ignored.

Even more than a decade after Sept. 11, 2001, the border remains porous for the simplest of reasons: The Obama administration has no interest in securing it.
