Default The All-American Canal

Saw this earlier tonight when watching 60 Minutes and I can't stop thinking about it.

(here's the link if you missed it : http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=6453537n)

Just curious to see what others think and feel about this story.

Should the money be spent to add the safety measures that would reduce the number of drownings, or should we leave the canal as is?

Put some safety features like ladders and such on the Mexican side of the river, that when when they realize they cant get out on the american side they can at least get blackout on the mexico side without dieing.

I oppose Illegal immigration but that doesn't mean we should just let a bunch of people die because they are trying to have a better life.

Over 500 people have drowned in the canal, I think if 20 Americans has drowned something would have been done. Something should be done, these are still people we are talking about.

I agree with your take on this.

Even if sneaking into the country is illegal it doesn't deserve death. The ladders would be a great idea.
