The Bush administration is wrong...

....on border protection, and the funding for new agents is grossly insufficient. I understand Bush's desire to maintain good relations with Mexico, despite recent problems, but security should not be taking a back seat to anything. The Mexican government aggressively protects their southern border yet expects us to remain a sieve to alleviate the pressure on them to improve their economy and clean up the rampant corruption.

It's time for Congress to take a stand and fully fund the Border Patrol, increase staffing sufficiently to do the job right and quit screwing around.
