Voting is highly emphasized in American culture. Asking questions related to public policy takes a lower priority.

Are newspeople forbidden to ask questions related to Homeland Security funding and performance?

Billions of dollars are spent every 12 months to keep bad people from coming here to do bad things. People need to carry a special ID to go have lunch in Canada, then return home. Have these ID requirements helped to keep cartel product from entering the US?

15 people from Puget Sound indicted in Mexican drug cartel trafficking conspiracy

“Authorities announced indictments Tuesday of 15 people from the Puget Sound region connected to a “violent and prolific” Mexican drug cartel trafficking conspiracy.”

“The United States Department of Justice arrested 19 people following an 18-month investigation of a drug trafficking organization tied to the CJNG cartel in Mexico.”

Wonder what was happening at border crossing/port of entry inspections during the 18 months these folks were under investigation.

Do the good guys who made the local bust notify the good guys at the border about the weak links in their process?
