It's so odd to see the subject of secure borders come up with either Republican OR Democrat politicians,when you consider that all powerful countries have strong ,secure borders to prevent easy access from real enemies-something this country NEVER does-yet some want to just profile certain groups only. I'm old enough to remember how dangerous it was to try to leave Russia the legal way,through customs, as well as sneaking away to walk to a third country under barbed wire fences while hoping the border guards never see you in time to grab you. Borders were used mostly to keep people IN and freedom OUT. Jan Brewer needs to concentrate on border security that focuses on hostile nationals,especially now. Give US benefits to legal citizens first,and guard the borders without the race- baiting. Now Putin has beefed up Russia's borders to keep democracy activists out.
