Bringing out the tanks just in case an illegal alien is found is overkill
The most recent debacle by the various Gestapo units of DHS is to bring out nearly 800 full armed, armor protected Feds to try to capture a few illegals in Tucson. This latest incident of overkill completely stopped the main arteries of the city while the DHS goon squads did their work.
While I believe in a reasonable policy on illegal immigration, and finding ways to stop the illegals, this is decidely NOT IT. What will happen one of these days is that the illegals WILL fight back and not try to melt into the communities as they presently do, and there will be bloodshed on the streets. Much of that possibility is due, in my view, to the heavy-handed approach that former Governor of Arizona Napolitano practiced while she was Governor.
Seems to me that the firepower used in Tucson would have been better used along the border (Dah!) where you prevent them from coming in to begin with. Of course, that would probably mean these goons would not then have anyone (other than the illegals) see all the fancy equipment and guns they insist on scaring the populace with as they did in Tucson.
