How To Defeat Illegal Immigration

Guns and Gear | Guns and Gear
Two men are taken into custody by the U.S. Border Patrol near Falfurrias, Texas March 29, 2013. Brooks County has become an epicentre for illegal immigrant deaths in Texas. In 2012, sheriff's deputies found 129 bodies there, six times the number recorded in 2010. Most of those who died succumbed to the punishing heat and rough terrain that comprise the ranch lands of south Texas. Many migrants spend a few days in a "stash house", such as the Casa del Migrante, in Reynosa, Mexico, and many are ignorant of the treacherous journey ahead. Picture taken March 29, 2013.

“Stopping illegal immigration at our nation’s southern border is not nearly as difficult as many pretend.”

Oral tradition holds that this flag flew at the Battle of Bennington in 1777, but more recent studies find the flag to be made of machine-spun cotton, a process that was not possible until the early 1800s. Despite its mysterious origins, the flag’s unusual arrangement presents a unique interpretation of the Stars and Stripes. While the large “76” in the canton recalls the year of the birth of the Declaration of Independence, the seven-pointed stars in an arched formation and alternating white-red (instead of the traditional red-white) evokes a spirit of the Revolutionary War (Photo: Getty Images)
