There's been talk about illegals hurting our Security.

Here's some proof, via Glenn Beck.

The Marines and Army are having problems
using their live-fire ranges because of the illegals running through them.
Since July 2004, the training range has been shut down more than 500 times because of immigrants spotted on the range, causing a loss of more than 1,100 training hours, said Colonel James J. Cooney, the base's commanding officer.

''That's equivalent to almost 46 days of training. We're getting overrun here," he said in an interview. ''Any moment we take away from a Marine's experience base could cost him his life in combat."

Cooney said Marines intercepted more than 1,500 undocumented immigrants on the training range last year and, in the first three months of this year, more than 1,100. Base personnel detain the immigrants and call in Border Patrol agents to pick them up.

So far we haven't hurt or killed any of them yet (that we know) but:

Last summer a Marine pilot dropped a practice bomb on a target and seconds later, a few feet away, a small group of illegal immigrants scrambled from underneath a bush and ran down the range. The near miss was caught on a training tape that Cooney has reviewed.

So far the Marines said there have been no deaths of immigrants in the training exercises.

''My overall concern is that we'd have an unfortunate incident out there where we'd inadvertently harm an illegal entrant that we did not spot or see, and that in turn would cause a moratorium on training until we sorted out what exactly happened," said Cooney.

OK, I know that most of those third world trespassers are products of a corrupt education system (the Mexican one) and are basicly illiterate, but they should be warned using pictographs, maybe. If they still cross, well in the famous words of Daily Koz (which takes you to his main page since it appears he's deleted the article referenced here)

- "Screw them!"
They're twice where they don't belong (in the US and on a live-fire range)
