Democrats Want “Smart” Border Security Or Something

Dem Rep. Cicilline: ‘Democrats Support Border Security’ — ‘In a Smart Way’

Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI) during an appearance on “Sunday Morning Futures” on Fox News Channel argued Democrats support border security when it is done “in a smart way.”

Instead of a wall at the border, Cicilline suggested using the best technology available to protect the border, which he said would be a better use of taxpayers’ money.

“Democrats support border security,” Cicilline told host Maria Bartiromo. “We appropriated in the last two years $1.6 billion for border security, and Democrats support that. We just think it should be done in a smart way — use technology, use sensors, use drones, use more personnel; use it in a way that’s effective.”

“Let’s secure the borders in a cost-effective way, using the best technology that will keep our borders safe,” he added.

The problem here is that other than personnel, those methods do not actually stop anyone from coming across the border, they just alert us that something, maybe a human, has crossed the border. We have a lot of that now, and sometimes the Border Patrol and other law enforcement gets the illegals, more often not. If you have no front door and rely on a security camera while you’re at work, does this stop anyone from coming in and taking what they want? Oh, the police will come when the alarm goes off? Too bad, the nearest police are 20 minutes away.

The border wall, along with personnel, in San Diego reduced the flow of illegal aliens from half a million a quarter century ago to 32,000 in 2016. We do not need a wall along the entire border: in certain specific areas it is necessary. We saw it stop most of the migrant caravan, did we not?

Democrats really do just want open borders.

    They use that technology to detect and interdict drug trafficking, which the government cares about, not to interdict “migrants” which the government doesn’t care about.

    Like they wanted smart diplomacy?

    It’s simple. Anyone paying attention gets it.

    1. No borders equal mass immigration legal and illegally.
    2. No ID required to vote equals democrats running the nation from now until doomsday.
    3. Democrats running the country will translate to doomsday much quicker than anyone realizes.

    So some dipshit Congressman from Rhode Island thinks he is somehow enlightened on how to stop people from crossing the Sonoran Desert. He should try to stick with issues that pertain to his home state, except that when I looked it up, Rhode Island seems to only be good for high taxes and tourism.
