    Expose and demand the obvious Human Rights violations and demand US State Dept Sanctions vs the Mexican Government to provide in-house services for their own citizens. We also demand repeal of the North American Union and refund our border.
    voice?????
    political and media mouths are not speaking about our country being invaded. They don't care about us. ISIS who? In fact the more Isis the better. The more fear we have the more we will ask for their leadership to help us. Then what.

    The "elected" leaders are double speaking to us,.....
    They use their owned mainstream media to report only on the daily events...making us emotional, ...

    Obama admin. Is replacing the knowlegeable resistent current American with the docile desperate Mexican Native Indian population. Advertising in many Latin American countries to go to the American Border says they will not be turned away.

    "They came from many Arab countries like Turkey, Syria and Iran.......", Which planet are you living on? Majority in Turkey are Turks and are of Asian descent, not Arabs. Majority in Iran are Persians which are of Indo-European descent, not Arabs. The only Arab coutry among the three is Syria. Umaro Djau is ignorant, undereducated or retarded (or all three)

    The kurds are fighting for their rights. They have nothing to do with drugs or anyhing else. All the bad stories of kurds and the fighters of the PKK are turkish propaganda. Now the whole world can see this, the kurds are are fighting against the islamic terrorists for almost two years now.

    Kurdish people are sunni and always have been killed by Iran Shia Regime and Al-Assad shia regime and recently by the ISIS!.

    Today both Islamic Iran regime and ISIS attacked the Kurdish in the west of Iran and north of Syria.

    USA, allies, and the coalition forces should STOP Turkey as soon as possible if they want to stop ISIS. ISIS gets everything through Turkey; new recruits, medical and ammunition support, oil black market. etc. Do not full American people by exaggerating a bunch of blood thirsty terrorists named ISIS. It is not ISIS alone. It is the NATO member Turkey. STOP Turkey as soon as possible.
