How serious is the US about it's borders?


By the spring, kiosks could open up in Big Bend National Park allowing people from the tiny Mexican town of Boquillas del Carmen to scan their identity documents and talk to a customs officer in another location, at least 100 miles away.

The crossing, which would be the nation's first such port of entry with Mexico, has sparked opposition from some who see it as counterintuitive in these days of heightened border security. Supporters say the crossing would give the isolated Mexican town long-awaited access to U.S. commerce, improve conservation efforts and be an unlikely target for criminal operations.

Meanwhile, old ladies still getting sent through the naked picture machine at the airport or strip-searched if they refuse.

Somebody phone up the Republican National Committee and tell them they better get out there and kick their presidential candidates in the balls, baby. Republicans: The Party of Stupid.
