Serious question... why do we not just shoot anyone crossing the border outside of an authorized checkpoint/border crossing? Why even bother detaining them? Is it somehow now illegal to defend a nation from invasion?

ETA: By we, I mean our country/government, not we as individuals.

Same reason we can't interrogate people

Domestic politics, correct? As I am fairly confident that if I had tried to enter certain foreign countries that I have been to outside of normal checkpoints I wouldn't have survived the experience.

I am as anti illegal immigrant, close down the borders as anyone but the reason we do not do that is we are not fucking North Korea?

Because America should try to be more like "certain foreign countries", right?

Is it legal to shoot someone in any state, even Texas, just for trespass?

I prefer mining the border, as it saves ammo.

To clarify, I do not mean "We" as in individuals, but rather as a nation why can our government not protect our borders with lethal force.

Hell, try to sneak onto certain military installations and you are warned that the use of deadly force is authorized - why not at our border as well?

We're not East Germany.

Well generally speaking you can't employ lethal force unless there is a felony taking place where someone is under immediate threat of death or great bodily harm.

I think a few states had laws on the books up until the early 90's that made it an affirmative defense to shoot trespassers, a misdemeanor.

I asked the same question before on here and it brought out all the liberals.
I really think after one or two head shots were made the others would turn and run and spread the story.
Have the border posted with warning signs and the crossings would either stop or slow way down.

If they cross the border onto PRIVATE PROPERTY which is clearly maked "No Tresspassing", can the property owner take lethal action?
