Want to know why the diversion of what would have to be many times the law enforcement resources we have now on tracking down painters, maids, landscapers and other immigrant workers here to simply make a living is a suicidally dumb idea? Well, if your efforts are focused on the 12-20 million people here working without a work visa then you cannot spend the time or resources looking for the 3-4 people needed to smuggle WMDs across the borders:
A terrorist wanting to smuggle radioactive material from Canada into the United States probably would find it easy to do, a new report from congressional investigators said.
Government investigators were able to cross from Canada into the United States carrying a duffle bag with contents that looked like radioactive material and never encountered a law enforcement official, according to a report released Thursday by investigators from the Government Accountability Office.
“Our work clearly shows substantial vulnerabilities in the northern border to terrorist or criminals entering the United States undetected,” the GAO’s Greg Kutz testified Thursday at a Senate Finance Committee hearing on the topic.
The investigators made crossings from Canada into the United States three times in fall 2006, the report said
We are being blinded by paranoia. The far right is obsessed with the southern border and the influx of hispanic cultures stresses on our own society. They are obsessed with the 12-20 million people who have lived here for years working the underground economy. Their goals and desires require a tripling or quadrupling of our law enforcement resources, basically diverting 3-4 times are current capacity on the issue of illegal workers, when the issue is terrorism.
People checking IDs and Visas, etc are not paying as much attention to what these people may be bringing in. The Litvinenko story is a clear example of how much deadly material one person can bring across with LEGAL access. A suger pack of Po-210 can kill hundreds of thousands, if not millions. That is because ten-millionths of a gram is all that is required to kill one person (Litivnenko). A sugar pack, being one gram, contains 10 million doses of this size. Even with dispersion and ingestion efficiencies in the 1% range we are talking hundreds of thousands of dead.
The amnesty hypochondriacs are dangerously distracted. None of their guest worker issues address this kind of threat. They are focused in the South, ignoring our cultural twin’s border to the north. They focus on English as a prime language when radiation doesn’t speak any language. The fact they are distracted and confused has no bearing on what the rest of us need to do. The left is distracted and obsessed with surrendering Iraq. It is the sane middle of this country that needs to step up and get past all these silly diversions and protect our families and communities.
