Abysmal lack of security on dangerously sieve-like southern border
The appalling situation on our nation’s southern border is worsening as illegal aliens armed with rocks and water bottles are now brazenly attacking U. S. Border Patrol agents. (Video second frame down in this link.)
Although the mob of approximately 150 illegals were ordered to stop, they ignored the warnings and unrelentingly pelted the officers, while continuing to walk across the border into the United States. Even with reinforcements, agents were outnumbered, dodging the rocks and other projectiles.
Katie Pavlich, News Editor at Townhall has written that as talks of amnesty have once again increased, illegal crossings have doubled — making the border less secure and the work of Border Patrol Agents more difficult. Illegal immigration has steadily increased in Arizona.
An agent speaking to Townhall said, “We’ve seen the number of illegal aliens double, maybe even triple, since amnesty talk started happening.” The agent requested anonymity due to fear of retaliation within Customs and Border Protection [CBP], something he said is common. “A lot of these people, although not the majority, are criminals or aggravated felons. This is a direct danger to our communities.”
Meanwhile we read that cities across the United States from Tucson to Chicago, Chattanooga to Dayton are inexplicably and irrationally implementing plans to lure illegal workers and passing laws benefiting foreign nationals who have illegally invaded our nation.
Though the Obama administration’s Department of Justice has sued Arizona to keep our state from enforcing SB1070, the federal government has “done nothing to hold these local communities and states accountable for policies that impede immigration enforcement,” says Ira Mehlman of the Federation for American Immigration Reform.
No disrespect intended, Mr. Mehlman, but we’d classify that as an understatement.
