As part of the U.S. Crisis Support Package for Ukraine announced by the White House in April, the State Department awarded a $435,000 contract to B.K. Engineering System in Kyiv for razor wire to help "defend the newly imposed borders between Ukraine's mainland and the Crimean peninsula." The contract was awarded on June 12, but was just posted online this week.

[T]his order is for the delivery of 2,500 spools of Concertina wire for the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine referenced in the Office of the Vice President's Fact Sheet entitled "U.S. Crisis Support Package for Ukraine" dated 22 April 2014. This Fact Sheet includes Security Assistance in which the Office of the Vice President announced the provision of urgently needed non-lethal assistance to the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine to fulfill its core security mission.

To All,

IF we had THE WILL to stop "the cross-border traffic" we could by the following means:
1. Make it a FELONY to hire any illegal alien & IMPRISON the illegal employers for a minimum of 5 years for EACH unlawful hire,
2. Deport with a court order to NOT return to the USA, any person crossing our borders unlawfully. In the event that they choose to return, imprison them for a YEAR at hard labor, with any future unlawful entry to be punished by evermore severe sentences at hard labor,
3. Make any unlawful entry for the purpose of smuggling unlawful drugs or firearms a felony punishable by TEN YEARS at hard labor without probation, parole or pardon AND specifically forbidding any "plea bargains" for any WILLFUL violator,
4. Automatically deport as an "undesirable" any illegal immigrant, who is convicted of any felony, any "breach of the peace" or crime involving moral turpitude or unlawful drugs, regardless of how long that they have been in the USA and/or whatever "family connection" that they have to a lawful resident and FORBID them from ever returning to our country,
5. Allow "sponsorship" by American citizens of up to two children under the age of 12 years, provided that those children do NOT become "a burden on the public treasury". In the event that their sponsor is unwilling/unable to continue their care, that the minor child be removed from our borders,
6. Lawful residents/citizens, who arrived here as a child (under provision #5) and were sponsored by a citizen, upon attaining the age of 21 years may sponsor/support financially a single parent, child or spouse & forever be barred from sponsoring any other person.
7. That the Congress of the USA may, from time to time, issue TEMPORARY WORK PERMITS for NO more than 3 years to any individual person & that having a work permit requires the worker to leave and remain outside of the USA for a year prior to returning under any new work permit
8. That the above provisions are PERMANENT & may only be made more restrictive in the future.

IF these proposed laws sound SEVERE to any reader, they are LESS restrictive than the immigration laws of any Latin American nation.
(I've lived south of our southern border & my daughter is adopted out of Mexico. = She is now a proud/naturalized US citizen as of 05JUL09. = I had to "sign my life away" to bring my daughter to the USA.)

Kevin Gibson,

See#7. = We USED TO HAVE such a program & the program worked WELL. = A migrant could spend 179 days here & then go home for the other 6 months & LIVE WELL there on the previous 6 month's wages.
(Our farm's contractor was a NM-born Chicano citizen named JUAN P. TORRES headquartered out of Nueva Leon, Mexico & he took care of their lodging, food, medical care, etc. while the laborers were in TX & the migrants AND northeast TX farmers liked him. = A labor contractor that was BAD didn't last long in the business, as IF he took advantage of his laborers, they wouldn't work for him AND if he wasn't "good to" the farmers, we wouldn't use his firm.)

Fwiw, the POLITICIANS didn't like it because it was pure CAPITALISM & there was little or no government "involvement". - You should read "government involvement" here as: SNOOPING into the private affairs of the ordinary people.

ADDENDA: One of the FEW problems with the old program was that jobs other than farm work took too much of the 6 months to train a worker. - On the other hand 5 years is too long BUT 2 or 3 years is just about right.

just my opinion, sw
