Pinal County Arizona Sheriff says that the Obama admin has handcuffed the US Border Patrol and lied to the American people. He was joined a few days ago by members of the National Border Patrol Council in denouncing the Obama administrations apparent policy of open borders.
It’s a well known FACT now that Obama has been bypassing Congress ever-searching for those backdoors in order to keep the US Border Patrol from enforcing US immigration laws. His favorite “tool” is the infamous Executive Orders which he seems to use as if they are Imperial Edicts. Effectively what Obama has done is grant all illegals amnesty and handcuffed the Border Patrol so they can’t do their job as mandated by US law. Border agents who complain say they’ve been told if they don’t like the policies then QUIT!
Sheriff Paul Babeu in Arizona said high traffic smuggling rousts are INTENTIONALLY understaffed due to Obama’s policies. In the first 4 months of this year Babeu said illegal immigration has gone up by as much as 25% and that there has been a 102% increase in illegal immigration by juveniles. This despite the fact that Federal officials claim illegal immigration is at an all time low. Obviously it is not and there are still hundreds of thousands of juveniles crossing the US-Mexico border.
Illegals from Latin America are not the only concern. Babeu and Border Patrol reps also expressed concern about Muslim terrorists illegally entering the US via Mexico. US Border agents routinely find discarded para-military uniforms along the border marked with Arabic writing.
During the press conference officials in Arizona said Obama has manipulated the data, assigns officers to LOW traffic areas rather than high traffic areas, and has tried to quite dissent by calling those who question the presidents policies “misinformed” yet the Obama admin offers no evidence to support their claims. In short, the Obama Admin is LYING to the American public!
In other matters related to the border and illegal immigration Ranchers from along the border gathered to express concern about the influx of illegals immigration and smuggling along the border. “We got problems here,” the said. Border patrolmen, area sheriffs, and representatives from the National Guard and US Army were also present at this gathering of several hundred ranchers. In fact, over 600 showed up in a town that only has a population of 237!
Recently, one ranch hand was kidnapped by drug runners along the border. He was beaten up and driven to Arizona in his own vehicle which the smugglers loaded with drugs. Border ranchers have long been concerned about smugglers and illegal immigrants crossing their ranch lands and their concerns are growing as smugglers are becoming more and more aggressive towards them.
Rancher Robert Krentz of Arizona was murdered by smugglers in Arizona back in 2010 and his killing is STILL unsolved. He was found shot dead on his ranch near the US-Mexico border. Ranchers and area residents all along the border continue to say that the US-Mexico border is NOT SECURE at all and, in fact, is more like there is no border at all. Border Patrol officers and area police have said the same thing. Yet, the Obama administration maintains that the border is secure and illegal immigration is at an all time low!
Ranchers and residents along the border along with law enforcement say that the border is NOT SAFE and it isn’t. In fact, large sections of US land have been closed off to the public as drug smuggling and human trafficking is so out of control that these criminals basically now control those lands. One example is Organ Pipe National Monument in southern Arizona which is effectively closed due to smuggling problems. In some areas police no longer even patrol the area as it is too unsafe! Of course you can still enter at your own risk and the Federal government has put up signs warning visitors of this. That’s their idea of “secure borders”????
The ranchers, military, and police officials gathered at the news conference said all along the US-Mexico border there are growing problems and the Obama administration is trying to hide the facts.
National Guard Brig General Andrew Salas said people along the border have grave concerns for themselves and their communities and that the National Guard is ready to help. Really General Salas? PROBLEM is Obama WON’T let you do anything either!!
Of course I’m still trying to figure out why George Bush 2 didn’t move quickly to secure the US-Mexico border immediately after 9/11. Why did he not order the US Army and National Guard to the border after that TERRORIST attack? He, like Obama, ignored the elephant in the room. Fact is the drug and human smugglers from California to Arizona to New Mexico to Texas are becoming more sophisticated and brave. They are already killing Americans on the US side of the border and police are finding more and more decapitated human heads out in the middle of nowhere which are obviously the actions of illegal drug smugglers just like in Mexico! Further, the Mexican drug cartels have ALREADY entrenched themselves in the US southwest and are operating just as they do in Mexico!
This is why I laugh when I hear Obama talk about national security. Along the US-Mexico border there is NO NATIONAL SECURITY at all. This issue is now coming to a head and the border problem is not getting better but WORSE.
