You should do some research, they aren't the patriotic saints you make them out to be. They are lawbreakers, you should be consitent and punish them. Yet you have a hard time being consistent, don't you?
1. I was telling there government to grow a pair.

2. Carrying a weapon??? It's not lawbreaking if they have permits. Illegals steal people ID's look what happened in Denver. They could ruin peoples credit and other incedents, but thats ok, because there hard workers who work cheap right?

If they were unsuccessful and there were numerous incidents like this, then yes we may need more security, but it sounds like the National Guard did their job.

The site is manned by National Guardsmen. Those guardsmen were forced to retreat.

Doesn't sound like they did their job to me. If they need more people, firepower or authorization to shoot back then they should get it.

It also says the attackers retreated and were not hurt. I would rather have the guardsmen retreat than just open fire and start chaos. If a group came at me with guns, I'd try retreating before open firing.

It's not legal to carry a gun with the intent of shooting someone who crosses the border. Take a look at the facts and the law.

Why do you keep using this weak-ass argument? Do you realize the percentage of ID theft committed by illegals is less than 5%?

who said anything about a war? The little fuckers are invading our country and shooting at and overrunning our troops at the border forcing them to retreat deeper into our own country and you find this acceptable because they eventually gave up and went back to Mexico! Maybe we can lay down the guns and give them all a big hug!

They're not war soldiers, they are the National Guard. Since when are we at war with Mexico? What would be the point of having them stand there and open fire without any information or tactical plan? Retreating during war, when you are on the offensive is different than a surprise attack on a border post.

Either way, the gunsmen left back to Mexico, no one was killed or injured. The article doesn't even say whether shots were fired from either side. Job done.

So, no one got hurt and they weren't allowed into our country, and somehow that isn't good enough? Why, because no one was killed?

unknown number of gunmen attacked
What were the guns for then?
Would you be okay with gunmen entering your house and forcing you out AS LONG AS THEY EVENTUALLY LEFT?

The Border Patrol will not say whether shots were fired.
And sorry, but your house analogy doesn't work.
