I just don’t get it. We now have the possibility brewing that the Swine Fu will become a pandemic, and what is the response to tightening our border with Mexico? Nada. Not only do we not have the ability to screen arriving passengers at our airports for signs of a high fever, as they do in Korea and Japan, but at the check points on the border in El Paso, my old stomping grounds, Custom agents are still allowing people who say they are sick or are feeling ill to enter. In one instance, a Custom agent was reported to have said it wasn’t necessary for the person to wear his surgical mask. What kind of instructions are the Dept. of Homeland Security and the H.H.S. people giving our border agents I wonder?

How much do you want to bet that all this is being done so that we don’t appear that we’re trying to restrict the flow of Mexican nationals into the country? I mean, sure, we certainly don’t want to restrict the flow of illegal aliens into our country when all they’re doing is coming here to freeload, commit crimes, not pay taxes, bad-mouth the USA and lobby for their “rights,” but surely now we have a justifiable reason to curb the flow of immigration from Mexico, albeit temporarily, to help quarantine ourselves from an epidemic that has the potential of becoming global in scope. You better believe that if the problem had originated here, the Mexican government would have closed the border tighter than an inch of spandex stretched over Rosie O’Donnell’s ass.
