    Tuscon Citizen: Immigration bill could be windfall for Arizona economy

    Arizona’s economy would get a shot of adrenaline from the $4.5billion in border-security spending in the immigration bill introduced Wednesday in the Senate, state business leaders say. At the same time, the further militarization of the border in the bill, along with what one federal public defender called a “zero-tolerance policy” against border crossers, raises red flags for civil-rights and immigrant-advocacy groups.

    The bill would fund more fences, more Border Patrol agents thugs, more drones and more surveillance technology along the whole Southwest border, but those efforts would focus on what it terms the three “high risk” sectors (out of nine) now seeing the most apprehensions of undocumented migrants: the Tucson Sector and the Rio Grande and Laredo sectors in Texas.

    The current level of abuse on the part CBP thugs already far exceeds all bounds of decency. I shudder at the thought of how these goods might implement a "zero tolerance" policy.

    I don't mind them protecting the BORDER, so long as they aren't shooting at children across it in Mexico, or beating up/stripping people trying to cross lawfully. It's defining the BORDER as a 100 mile zone that is the issue.

    That and the fact that everything the US federal government does these days ends up a major clusterf*k, like Obamacare.
