I think most people know that our southern border security is a farce at best. And, like me, they’re still wondering why 13 years after 9/11 our border to the south remains insecure. After all, why didn’t President Bush secure the border immediately after 9/11 instead of leaving it wide open as Obama has also done?
Last week reports began appearing in the MSM press about ICE busing illegals from Mexico and Central America out of Texas and into Arizona by the thousands including women and small children. And that’s not all. Some of those illegals are young children with no parents attending them! Here’s what has been happening….
Arizona has cracked down on illegals in that state and illegal immigrants know it. So they’ve been crossing the border into Texas more and more. Immigration officials decided there were not enough ICE officers to process them all in Texas. So why didn’t ICE move officers from AZ into Texas to help out? That’s the billion dollar question. Anyway, ICE decided to bus the illegals out of Texas and into Arizona and other states to ICE facilities there for processing. Once processed they are then bused to the Greyhound bus depots in Phoenix or Tucson and simply dropped off. The idea is that they get a bus ticket or call relatives to wire money to them so they can buy a bus ticket to wherever their relatives are living in the US. So they have no money. No bus tickets. And how in the hell does ICE expect all those young children to buy a bus ticket? Greyhound officials have complained about the drop offs but to no avail and humanitarian relief agencies have been trying to help as much as they can in terms of food, money, etc. THIS IS AMERICA’S SOLUTION TO THE IMMIGRATION PROBLEM? Abandoning young children at a bus station?
Of course, ICE says that things are on a word commitment once released at the bus station as the people are to report to ICE wherever they end up. And if they don’t? Not to worry amigos as ICE won’t go looking for them! WTF?
More and more reports on this human crisis now created by the US government have been coming out over the past week and last Monday Arizona Governor Jan Brewer sent a letter to President Obama demanding answers and explanations. You might remember her for wagging her finger in Obama’s face on the tarmac when he landed in Phoenix not so long ago. Anyhow, Brewer is outraged by this practice of the Obama administration and so are a growing number of people in Arizona who thought passage of legislation like the infamous SB1070 took care of a lot of the problems the state was having with illegal border crossers. But, no so! The federal government has now been running them into ARIZONA! Maybe the Az legislature needs to pass a bill similar to SB1070 but apply it to the feds, no?
Governor Brewer said, “This is a crisis of the federal government’s creation, and the fact that the border remains unsecure, now apparently intentionally, while this operation continues full steam ahead is deplorable.” Well governor I have news for you. The US-Mexican border has NEVER been secure. And as for the federal government it was YOUR OWN former governor Janet Napolitano who became Obama’s head of Homeland Security who seems to have instituted this “do nothing” policy.
And the fed response to Brewer and her letter? The feds say NO END in sight for the policy of dumping illegals in Arizona! In other words, governor, Obama just threw you the middle finger!
Brewer says the feds never informed her about the operation and they apparently refuse to explain it. She went on to say, “I am disturbed and outraged that President Obama’s administration continues to implement this dangerous and inhumane policy, meanwhile neglecting to answer crucial questions our citizens demand and deserve.” I don’t think Governor Brewer understands that the Obama administration considers itself imperial and above the law and does not feel the need nor desire to explain anything.
Last year along Border Patrol agents in the Rio Grande Valley sector of Texas apprehended an astounding 154, 453 illegals which was up from the previous year of 97,762. More shocking than this is the surge in the numbers of young children officials are seeing come across the border. Ironically, this past Monday Obama appointed FEMA director Craig Fugate to lead an effort to address this part of the crisis. FEMA? What about ICE? Of course Obama is asking Congress for more money to the tune of $1.4 billion to deal with the problem. Surprised?
ICE did release a statement saying, “After screening by DHS authorities, the family units will be released under supervision and required to report to a local ICE office near their destination address within 15 days, where their cases will be managed in accordance with current ICE enforcement priorities.” LOL laughable! Hell most of these people will be still sitting at the Greyhound bus station 15 days after being dropped off by ICE waiting for money or trying to figure out how to get money for a bus ticket. Who do they think they are fooling. And as for ICE current enforcement policy that is “catch and release.” ICE is only going after those illegals with criminal records and ignoring the rest now.
Now I suppose some of you are wondering why these people aren’t being bused back into Mexico. Good question! If ICE can bus them from Texas to Arizona then certainly they have the funds to bus them back into Mexico. Problem is Mexico doesn’t want them back.
So mi amigos if you believed all that shit from Obama about how our border is more secure than ever then you might be interested in purchasing an old cardboard box “home” I have near Mexico City. For a “fair” price of course. Isn’t it ironic? The federal government is actually contributing to the illegal immigration problem instead of trying to resolve it. How times have changed sine 2008.
