Here's the solution to a big part of the illegal alien problem
(beyond Obama being the chief stumbling block to any problem
you can imagine). I've been inspired by all the talk about
solutions for the Syrian refugees.
The U.S. Army will "free" some "safe" zones on the Mexican side
border and place the illegals there so they'll be "safe"
from whatever problems ailed them in Mexico. The Saudis can
fly in some of the three million or so semi-permanent Haj tents
they have for shelter. There can be a no-fly zone, camp
newspaper and everything, which ought to keep those pesky
news helicopters away. When the situation in Mexico improves,
they can go forth and prosper.
Actually, I suspect Mexico City will be secretly pleased the way
Assad is when he doesn't have to support his former countrymen
he's forced to emigrate everywhere but home.
