If the government guarded the border like they guard Area 51 I don't think there would be a problem.

We already experience Cartel violence down here,not quite as bad as finding 49 decapitated bodies,but kidnappings and murder along with home invasions to rip off stash houses occurr around here fairly regular.They don't even act like they care who sees them,there was a kidnapping in broad daylight outside a burger king,they found them before they had a chance to execute the guy,it was all over a load of drugs they guy lost and owed the cartel for the shipment.

I'm not sure what a "Living Wage" means anymore, I guess it depends on where you live.
To sit back hoping that someday, some way, someone will make things right is to go on feeding the crocodile, hoping he will eat you last - but eat you he will.
the UN saidBy most knowledgeable accounts, the situation is worsening (see links in my previous post for starters). All I'm saying is that we can't afford this drug war, and we can't seal the border.Afghan opium would kill 100,000 people this year in the parts of world where demand for heroin is highest - Europe, Russia and West Asia.
To fight it,... major powers have to expand their counter-drug efforts to neighbouring Pakistan as well as Iran, where half the 7,000 tonnes of exported Afghan opium transits, "causing the highest addiction rate in the world".

when the intervention of society... may be too late to prevent an injury.
first I'll comment on the wages for LEO/firefighters/etc..........its different everywhere, state to state
suntzu....we are NOT union here, I don't make anywhere near what LEOs make in some states where the filthy unions have their hands in everything
as for the violence....its here....but its just not as bad, the 49 bodies were the cartels jockeying with each other over control of towns/smuggling routes, we don't have that exact thing here but the cartels are alive and well here on US soil, the dealers here are working with or for them, the gangs here are working with or for them, around here almost all the fights, shootings, stabbings, robberies, etc, come from drug trade, cartel connections, and drug dealing gangs
fyi...legalizing pot won't stop this.....its also coke, heroin, and meth

If loose gun laws are good for criminals why do criminals support gun control?
LEO'S in border town should be paid more. Every city I know of does pay based on comparatives. Civil service perks are great no denying it. Everyone should get those types of perks we did 20 years ago
The violence and crime are already on our side of the border - 30% of the felons in AZ prisons are illegals from Mexico and points south. Sections of the border are already closed off to Americans. Legalize pot, it will grow everywhere on the planet except Antarctica. Seal the border with physical fences, razor wire, guards with guns (and permission to use them), land mines filled with the same dye used in bank robberies, wild predatory animals, whatever it takes to keep the violent criminals on their side. Make electronic transfers of funds to south of the border a crime without the permission of Border Patrol/ICE. Let border states enforce the US immigration laws, like all the other federal laws they are encouraged to enforce. Return illegals to the farthest point away from our border on a slow freighter. Penalize employers who knowingly hire illegals twice the amount they would have saved over say 7 years by not hiring legal workers. You make it so only dangerous criminals smuggling drugs would even try to cross the border.
Death sentence for people caught bringing drugs in this country.....Why because it's killing this country and our children....
