Somewhere Geraldo’s watching this and cursing under his breath about wingnut alarmism. Tell it to the Defense Department, champ. How many goodies are packed away in this Pandora’s box? Let’s see: Our illegal immigration problem would rapidly turn into a refugee problem; the new warlords in charge would be cultivated by America’s enemies for border access; and, as Beck notes, either the U.S. or the World Bank or both would probably end up on the hook for billions as part of a national bailout. A forward-thinking chief executive might want to prepare now by reinforcing the border with walls and infrastructure improvements and expanding the BP to make sure they’re capable of providing a first line of defense. But that would cost tons of money. Anyone know of any spending bills in Congress that might help cover the expense?
