Knuckle Head of the Day: Pete Stark June 30, 2010

A California congressman known for edgy sarcasm mocked an opponent of illegal immigration during a town hall meeting last week, asking, "Who are you going to kill today?".  Rep. Pete Stark, D-Calif., no stranger to controversy, mocked the idea that the borders are not secure when asked about the federal government's lack of activity on border security.   Stark asked the Minuteman what he would do to secure the border.  "I would send about about 25,000 troops for one thing and build a wall down so vehicles could not pass," the Minuteman said.  "How high and long would it be?" Stark asked.  "As high and as long as it takes," the Minuteman said, elicting cheers.  Stark said he would start a ladder company with the Minuteman if he designed the wall and doesn't shoot the people coming over.  "But I've got to know how high the wall is and I'll sell a whole lot of ladders for people who want to come," Stark said.  Read the full story at Fox News or Politico.  If Stark believes that having open boarders is a good policy, how did he get elected to preserve the constitution?  Is there any example of open boarders leading to the success of an established country?  How can security be enforced with undocumented people pouring through everyday?
