When it comes to securing our southern border, at least a few border agents have been stepping OVER THE LINE, ethically speaking, which leaves some Americans living near the border feeling not very secure

When it comes to the southern border and the southern states on it -- nothing surprises me - what a sorry state of humanity!

I tend to believe that incompetence is a simpler and more accurate explanation.

Noted. A local article here in So. AZ was a bit more in depth. (Sorry, I don't have a link). While there are still a few complaints, most of the locals say there are way too many border patrol agents infringing on their property. They complain that these agents are making much more money than locals, and "push their weight around." Illegal border traffic has reduced considerably in recent years, partly due to our own economy. The biggest problem is the drug traffickers....which would be nearly, if not completely eliminated if we just ended the drug war.

So when do we fight corruption within our own borders? That feeds everything south! Trust me.
