As if we didn’t have enough reasons to tighten our stance on illegal immigration, this happens.
It seems there is an ongoing war between the men and women who fight to protect our borders and the federal agencies responsible for keeping our nation safe.
Reports are coming in that Border Patrol officials are butting heads with the Department of Homeland Security over the treatment of illegal immigrants.
The way it’s supposed to happen (as it is reported to us, U.S. citizens), when border police find illegals, they are apprehended and eventually deported back to their country of origin. They are detained during their time in America for proper investigation before being ejected.
It seems, though, that’s not what’s happening at all.
From Judicial Watch:
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is quietly transporting illegal immigrants from the Mexican border to Phoenix and releasing them without proper processing or issuing court appearance documents, Border Patrol sources tell Judicial Watch. The government classifies them as Other Than Mexican (OTM) and this week around 35 were transferred 116 miles north from Tucson to a Phoenix bus station where they went their separate way. Judicial Watch was present when one of the white vans carrying a group of OTMs arrived at the Phoenix Greyhound station on Buckeye Road.
No processing has been done on these illegals.They have not been vetted or given proper papers for court appearances.
Instead of being sent back to their countries of origin, they were released into the U.S., with no means of being tracked. DHS didn’t check the identity of the so-called family members who picked up these illegals. They could be anyone and go anywhere.
Outraged Border Patrol agents and supervisors on the front lines say illegal immigrants are being released in droves because there’s no room to keep them in detention. “They’re telling us to put them on a bus and let them go,” said one law enforcement official in Arizona. “Just move those bodies across the country.”
How on earth can this be allowed to happen? Representatives of the Border Patrol union have even gone to Washington to protest, but their words have fallen on deaf ears.
Could the government be so blatant in their disregard for Americans’ safety? Does the President really want hundreds of undocumented illegals sneaking into our country, with no supervision or accountability?
We knew he has been lax in his final days in office, but this is just ridiculous.
It’s high time we had President who solved this problem, rather than make it worse.
