Mr. Rosales of San Diego wrote a very interesting conclusion about the Border Patrol and the canal lifelines, which he based on a supposed premise. What Mr. Rosales attempted to convey is called a syllogism. What it amounted to is called a non sequitur. Basically, Mr. Rosales, "All A is not C."
The Border Patrol saves lives in the course of carrying out its primary mission. It does not contain a crew of heartless, uncaring individuals. We will always extend a helping hand to those in distress. That doesn't mean that lifelines across the canal are consistent with the role of the Border Patrol.
What that does mean is that there's a higher potential for illegal aliens drowning in the canal, bolstered by a false sense of security in those lifelines. That also means more Border Patrol agents will be risking their lives at a higher rate, more than they are currently.
