Assemblyman Ray Haynes, R-Murrieta, has come up with an initiative to take on the task of securing California’s border with Mexico. He calls for creating an agency called the California Border Patrol.
CBP would address “the supply and the demand side, both the employers who support illegal immigrants and the illegals who come across the border. The initiative is comprehensive, statewide and uniform. I looked for the common theme. Both sides say, ‘Let’s enforce the law,'” said Haynes.
It sounds like the right plan. Secure the border. Arrest those crossing illegally, and charge companies who employ illegal immigrants. Until you dry up the demand, you won’t be able to shut off the supply. Hmm. I wonder if that might apply to the War on Drugs?
Perhaps, just like the Minutemen of old, the Minutemen of today are starting to make a difference that will grow. One can hope.
