Back to the Future: Arizona city seeks moat to secure Mexico border

Reuters reports that, although a border fence has been the focus of U.S.-Mexico border enforcement in recent months, Yuma, Arizona is looking to build a moat. Authorities in Yuma are thinking of going back to the days of the medieval castle and digging out a "security channel" on the border and filling it with water. Among others, Yuma County Sheriff Ralph Ogden is backing the project.

What will they think of next?

What will they think of next? How about a moat filled with a few thousand crocodiles and schools of piranha. That might slow down a few of those people that choose to ignore our borders.

While they're at it why don't they run an electric current through the mote, spikes, and dynamite to keep migrants out. I mean really don't enough migrants drown on the border already? Ridiculous.

It's democracy in action and makes a statement, regardless of it's effecacy. If you can't come here legally, then don't come at all, least of all if your a smuggler, gang member or fugitive from Mexican justice.

Kyle,

I have a question for you. Why didn't you publish FAIR's refutation of the SPLC contention that hate crime against Hispanics has had a marked increase? I sent it through your web site, Citizen Orange, the other day, so you can't deny knowing about it. For that matter, why didn't the good professors publish FAIR's argument that, adjusted for the vast increase in the Hispanic population, and the fact that reporting of hate crime has greatly improved over the years, the hate crime rate against Hispanics has actually declined by 40 percent. It has been widely publicized. Now, now, are we disingenuoulsy ignoring truths that are inconvenient to our agenda? Naughty, naughty! Be big enough to admit you were wrong and set the record straight.

Nonsense, Kyle, you'd kill the pirhanna.
