    The Deadly Passage of the All-American Canal

    The Deadly Passage of the All-American Canal - 60 Minutes - CBS News
    Over 550 People Have Drowned in What One Expert Calls Probably the Most Dangerous Body of Water in the U.S.
    IMO, put up plenty of of warning signs in both english and spanish. Maybe even make them solar powered to make it clear to night crossings.
    After that, enter the water at your own risk.
    I have a hard time with installing safety ropes, and bladders. It says "cross here".

    For the first time beginning this summer, police in Arizona will be able to stop anyone they like and order a check of their ID to determine whether the person is in the U.S. illegally.
    Wow, already I have a hard time even getting past the first sentence. The rest of this story oughtta be good.

    If that canal is being used as an entry point to the US, it isn't dangerous enough.

    OK, pretty much what I expected. A CBS sob story about how this deadly killer canal takes the lives of poor helpless people who are just looking for a better life.

    Here's an idea: Instead of the fences that the bureaucrats are so reluctant to build, let's extend this canal the entire length of our southern international border. Hydro dams all along the thing for that nice "clean" energy the enviro-wackos crave so much. NO safety measures, except for lighted signs in Spanish on the Mexican side stating, "There are no safety measures in these waters. You will very likely die attempting to cross." Maybe even post the body count from the previous year. See how long this problem lasts.

    The victims knew they were trespassing and entering a dangerous situation so their disposition is their own responsibility.

    We need to quit acting like it's a bad thing when stupidity culls the ignorant:
    People don't like to be meddled with. We tell them what to do, what to think, don't run, don't walk. We're in their homes and in their heads and we haven't the right. We're meddlesome.--River Tam

    "While the canal is a deathtrap, it is also a lifeline for the nation. It flows the length of 85 miles just north of California's border with Mexico, transporting water from the Colorado River to the Imperial Valley. Two thirds of our winter fruits and vegetables are grown with this water. But half of the people who pick those crops are illegal immigrants. "

    Why the USBP (rat catchers) does not sweep the valley during harvest season is simple. Crops rot in the fields, big agricultural compainies lose money. The cannery's don't run, and so on. We eat more canned veggies at home.
    Illegals are more then welcome during harvest time.
    I read somewhere it was illegal to hire illegals. That is simply not enforced.
    Big business is controlling the numbers of illegals allowed to enter the US.
    Most americans won't do field work. It is hard back breaking chore.
    I picked peaches for a summer in the san Joquin valley. Money was fair, but you earned every dime. Those spanish classes came in handy.
    The workers, legal, and illegal work the rich valley crops every summer, and fall. They move from town to town.
    This practice has gone on for ever in California. Except for a few years.
    During the depression, poor americans took the jobs from the illegals. After their work was done, they were told to "move on" by the law who are controled by the elected officials.
    Field work is not the only industry that uses ilegals.
    Low paying, backbreaking jobs are the ones americans won't do. The ones the baby boom teenagers filled for a few years. Most teen's today won't work a part time job.
    These are the jobs were the illegal's stay in one place. These folks are the most visable. The ones who piss us americans off.
    Again, its big business who wants them to come.
    Big business controls the people in public office, who in turn control the boarder patrol.

    If you get rid of the Illegals doing the cleanup, and kitchen work, the big resturant chains will have to hire americans at higher wages. Taking your honey out for a dinner at red lobster will cost much more. Wait, the gulf oil slick has stopped shrimping activity. A chicken dinner, from a large chicken producer, which hires mostly illegals will taste just as good.

    What a mess. I don't have an answer.

    I'm sure that dinner at Red Lobster didn't drop in price when they started using them either so what's the real issue??

    GREED

    Not enough to be making 40 million a year, gotta cut the throats of American workers for an extra 4 million a year.
