Celebrating May Day

Standing with my immigrant brothers in the United States – and all 27 million Peruvians – I am taking May 1st as a holiday.  

While you enjoy your time off or pay penance in the cube chew on this fact:
-Length of border between Iraq + Syria: 605 km.

-Length of border between USA + Mexico: 3,141 km.
Source: CIA - The World Factbook

If 100,000 plus highly professional soldiers can’t seal the first border, what makes conservatives think that somewhat less-skilled and less-dedicated border control guards are going to be able to ever police the second?
