Yes, What is Preventing the Securing of the Borders?

I have the same question. Just what is it that's preventing action being taken on the borders?

Could it be the influence of the "special interest" businesses who claim they will go bankrupt if they can't hire low-wage illegal workers?

Could it be concern about losing hispanic votes?

Could it be that the issue of security isn't really being taken seriously?
