Posse Comitatus

Hey, it's working. Now, don't get me wrong. I live in Mexico and understand more than most the desperation of these people trying to cross the border. However, in the United States we live by rule-of-law. You cannot enter another persons property when specifically forbidden to do so. You cannot cut his/her fences, strew trash and garbage across the property, release income-producing domesticated animals back into the wild, threaten the property owner and his/her family with physical harm, damage plant life and crops, or commit felonies on the property (not that it's legal to commit felonies anywhere in the United States, with the obvious exception of in the Congress).
