Violence and illegal immigration

The border town of Nogales Mexico (across the border from Nogales Arizona, has already had almost as many murders so far this year as they had for the entire year last year (131 so far this year compared with 135 all year last year). The town across from El Paso Texas had 2,600 murders last year (AP/KSTP).

The violence is spilling across the border even as President Obama assures Americans that the border is safe.

It seems to me that our government's failure to protect American citizens from foreign violence borders on the criminal. I'm not just talking about President Obama. I'm also talking about previous Presidents and Congress.

It seems to me that failure to protect Americans from foreign invasion and violence--millions of people pouring across the border sounds more like an invasion than an immigration problem--should be considered an impeachable offense.
