OBAMA’s AMERICA: Border Agent Speaks Out: We’re Terminated If We Try to Enforce the Law
Just about everything you hear about immigration and border security from official channels is a lie, particularly if those channels originate from the Obama administration.
Most of our readers already know this. For those of you who don’t, let’s look at some evidence…
A top Border Patrol agent revealed Thursday that if border agents follow the law and ask illegal aliens why they are coming to the U.S. they will be terminated.
The Border Patrol previously had a policy of “catch and release” that drew the ire of Border Patrol agents: “These orders are called Notices to Appear (NTA). The only problem, however, is that these official orders are usually ignored; so much so that Border Patrol Agents have dubbed them Notices to Disappear,” Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council testified.
“The latest data that I have seen shows that approximately 40 percent of the individuals being issued NTAs do not show up. The willful failure to show up for court appearances by persons that were arrested and released by the Border Patrol has become an extreme embarrassment for the Department of Homeland Security,” he said.
Eventually the DHS implemented a new policy that was even easier for illegals to exploit. The policy makes mandatory the release of any person arrested by the Border Patrol for being in the country illegally as long as they don’t have a felony conviction and claim they have been in the U.S. continuously since January 2014.
They don’t have to have proof of this residence and just have to make the claim. “A lot of agents will actually ask them where they heard this from and they’ll tell the agents, ‘Well, I was just told to tell you,’” said Judd.
He made the comments in testimony before the House Judiciary subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security.
“Right now the Border Patrol has actually told us that we can no longer ask them that question, why are they coming any more?” Judd said. “We can’t even ask that question. In some cases we still do, but we are being told that you can’t even ask why they are coming.”
And a punchline from the committee hearing…
“What do you think are the consequences for agents who are unwilling to comply with these limiting policies?” asked Rep. Raul Labrador .
“They’ll be terminated,” Judd replied.
Labrador than asked, “So for wanting to enforce the law that is in the books, they are going to be terminated from their jobs?”
“Absolutely,” Judd affirmed.
Some other highlights from the hearing…
- 2014 was considered the “surge” year for illegal immigration, and yet so far this year the influx is even greater than 2014.
- The human traffickers controlling most of the cross-border incursions have put the word out in Latin America that once an illegal gets across the border even if they’re caught they’ll be released and allowed to settle in America, which is of course not a lie in most circumstances.
- Mexican drug cartels are using illegal immigrants as a diversionary tactic to tie up resources which would otherwise be used to interdict drug shipments.
Most of which people might instinctively surmise, in spite of what they’ve heard from the administration’s spin doctors.
