Border Patrol Stations... Shutting Down

By GOPUSA Staff

Once you're in, you're good. That apparently seems to be the motto of Barack Obama and his administration regarding the problem of illegal immigration. Rather than hiring more Border Patrol agents, facilities are actually being shut down, thus making it even easier for illegal aliens to stay in the country.

The Obama administration is moving to shut down nine Border Patrol stations across four states, triggering a backlash from local law enforcement, members of Congress and Border Patrol agents themselves.

Critics of the move warn the closures will undercut efforts to intercept drug and human traffickers in well-traveled corridors north of the U.S.-Mexico border. Though the affected stations are scattered throughout northern and central Texas, and three other states, the coverage areas still see plenty of illegal immigrant activity -- one soon-to-be-shuttered station in Amarillo, Texas, is right in the middle of the I-40 corridor; another in Riverside, Calif., is outside Los Angeles.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection says it's closing the stations in order to reassign agents to high-priority areas closer to the border.

    Mitt Romney, hello? Mitt, you should take this travesty, and share it with the American People, saying how this will be REVERSED and more, as soon as you are elected! Insist that we are NOT a nation, if we have no borders, that we pick and choose what laws to enforce, like The “Justice” Department.

    So far however, there is this inclination, to PANDER. You cannot out–pander the Democrat Party. They have their Nanny State minions, in obedient, historical, lock step control.

    Your Green Card comment, does nothing for you, but alienate, anger your BASE. Do that, and you will find the energy, the enthusiasm, the money, dissipate like steam. Remember, loosing just 1% of your BASE, is a huge loss, as the BASE is large, wealthy, and has a track record of enthusiastic participation. (See, Ronald Reagan) You will loose more than 1%.

    And do the simple math. 1% of a small group, is, well, small. It is that simple. Yet, The Republican Party seems ready to pander as if on some kind of political crack. Don’t do this drug.

    I live in one of the communities that will affected by this move. The northern Texas Panhandle Division of the Department of Public Safety just received an award for the most drug traffickers, most drugs confiscated, and most money confiscated fromdrug dealers. Our local sheriffs and police are devastated by this move.

    Our Border Patrol office will be replaced with ONE ICE agent. To cover an area bigger than the state of Indiana.

    I consider this another example of President Obama’s war on Texas.

    By the way, this news came out a week ago. The only reason it went national is our local sheriff was interviewed by CNN.

      “just received an award for the most drug traffickers, most drugs confiscated, and most money confiscated from drug dealers.”

      That’s why it was shut down. You never dig where the bodies are buried. That’s why the left makes a big deal about profiling. If you are trying to catch illegal Hispanics Obama would have you detain and question every blond Swede that comes along. Then he can say we detained “x” number of people and as I told you none were no illegals. It’s not a problem.

    It’s been a hard road to bring some sanity to the illegal alien invasion, but there will be no respite from the TEA PARTY. The special interests entities, religion, unions, corporate along with large and small business, will never be allowed to win, against the overall will of the people. Citizens and legal residents want the real border fence built to curtail any more access to our sovereign lands, bringing in the criminals with their drugs. There is no reduction in illegal immigration as the authorities are stating, another invasion is building from Central and South America. Yet the agency that supposedly protecting us is closing down a number of entry ports along our Southern border? The DREAM ACT initiative, which President Obama’s current executive order has assigned, allows the children of illegal aliens to stay. But these students overtime will be able to sponsor by chain migration family members. This can be truly back door amnesty as this happened in the Ronald Reagan signing into law, the 1986 Immigration Control and Reform Act.

    The original amnesty was for 2.5 million people, mostly agricultural guest workers, but through haphazard processing 6 million slipped into America using fraudulent applications. Those millions of people scoffed at the farming employment and slipped into the mainstream stealing jobs in the construction industry, landscaping, entertainment and other services. This led to jobs of low income Americans, with less education losing their employment to people who would take less money. To compete with other dishonest companies professional businesses had eventually to hire illegal aliens, so they were not put out of business. Therefore this competition continues so the builders hire discount roofers, framers, drywall labor in many manual industries.

    THIS INVASION CAN BE PLACED IN THE SOILED HANDS OF A CONGRESS, WHETHER THE DEMOCRATS OR REPUBLICANS OVER DECADES OF DELIBERATELY IGNORING IN PROTECTING CITIZENS AND RESIDENTS, AND GIVING EMPLOYMENT VISAS OF AT LEAST A MILLION OF LOW SKILLED WORKERS OVER MANY YEARS. WHEN IS THE SPINELESS IDIOTS GOING TO DEFEND AMERICA FROM PEOPLE COMING HERE UNDER FALSE PRETENSES AND STEALING OUR OLD FOLKS PUBLIC ASSISTANCE, FOOD STAMPS, HOUSING, SOCIAL SUPPLEMENTAL INCOME AND CASH PAYMENTS. GO HOME AND GET YOUR OWN COUNTRY TO SUPPORT YOU. I AM FURIOUS THAT MY TAXES ARE GOING TO EDUCATE ILLEGAL ALIEN KIDS AND YOUR ACCESS TO FREE HEALTH CARE.

    DEMAND THAT ENTERING AMERICA CLASSED AS A FELONY, NOT A CIVIL OFFENSE?

    Today I am no longer a Democrat or Republican, but a true Independent, who is now a member of my local TEA PARTY. The Tea Party is YOU and ME, not any political group, but a way to expand efforts in a new political direction. It is not as the Liberal media tries to publicize us, as something like white supremacists? But in my chapter of which there are thousands around the country, we enjoy the opinions and proposals of Americans who are Hispanics of several generations, black people who great grandfather was the ancestors of slaves, Orientals and legal immigrants who came here to make a better life for their family. They realize that uncontrolled immigration is threatening the American way of life, as the foreigners slip around U.S. Customs and Border Protection just enter as a tourist, with no intention to leave.

    As of now the Imperial Court of Obama’s administration, led by the U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder has harassed the state of Arizona. Then Holder’s unceasing pressure to force all 50 states to accept 20 million illegal aliens already settled here, then his new attacks on Texas and Florida. His unrelenting push to stop them from enacting a fair and equitable law, so that no more fraudulent votes can exist from non citizens, who in the past by incorrigible criminals associated with the ACORN project. Some years back the ACORN organization registered anybody who could sign their name. Under the very flimsy, loose law of perjury their canvassers registered everybody and everything, including sadly Mickey Mouse. None of these agendas will gain headway under a TEA PARTY leadership, which will absorb themselves into the House or Representatives and the Senate. The TEA PARTY will have the massive influence to stop the erosion of our alienable rights, as stated in the U.S. Constitution.

    Illegal Immigration more than any other issue, has divided the country and the majority of American will not tolerate people who violate the law. But then again, the majority of Americans do not trust any government, whether it’s the Democrats, with a hefty portion of Liberal influence or the Republicans as they have proven over and over again that trust for them also has vanished out the window. Our biggest battle is for TEA PARTY leaders, to substitute many of the incumbents In Washington, state, county and local levels. Tea Party members must topple a majority of legislators in Congress, state governors as Deval Patrick of Massachusetts, Jerry Brown of California, and Mayors as Rahm Emanuel of Chicago, Antonio Villaraigosa of Los Angeles. This country is suffering from a $16 Trillion malaise, brought upon us by both political parties. Billions of dollars being spent to attain votes from illegal aliens, as the Democrats are looking the other way. The Republicans who see the illegal alien cheap labor market for their corporate friends who donate to their campaigns.

    We need expedited measures like a fair Tax system for everybody, with no special waivers for the farmers, the sugar producers, the oil companies. More urgently than anything else, is to begin the production of our own oil, natural gas and including the refinement of clean coal, which Obama’s Liberal so-called progressives have prohibited. With an abundance of these energy resources, we would have more than enough for our population, with enough spare to sell to friendly foreign countries. Beneath us are huge deposits that would quickly lower our incredulous federal deficit, which would lower the U.S. taxpayer debt.

    TEA PARTY is the only true plan that will ‘cease and desist’ illegal immigration for good. To repeat– we must replace every politician, Governor, Police Chief or other elected official who pampers the illegal alien invasion, whether they are a Democrat, Liberal or even a Republican with a TEA PARTY leader. Join your local Constitutional Tea Party and remove Obama, his Czars and as a alternative vote for Mitt Romney, but demand he enacts nationwide mandatory E-Verify ‘The Legal Workforce Act’ (H.R. 2885.) This will be a real deterrent of unauthorized workers getting jobs. Warn businesses that once E-Verify is law, they are liable for harsh treatment by the courts. This will stringently replace citizens and lawful non-citizens, after the E-Verify law is underway. As a second enforcement law the Secure Communities (287G) should stay in place, not rescinded by the Liberal accumulation of voices in the department of Justice. Further urgently needed is an amendment the Birthright Citizenship law (H.R.140,) which will save billions of your dollars and bring to a halt a bad misinterpretation of the 14th amendment, crediting children of illegal aliens a right to citizenship, then hence our public welfare system. The amendment would allow only babies of parents where at least one being a citizen gives the child entry into America.

    Look towards your own representatives in Congress and see if they are being dictated to by the ‘K” Street special interests, the unions, churches of a whole conglomeration of radical organizations. Is your local political personage against or for, illegal immigration? Did you Congress person vote an ordinance for a Sanctuary City, Dream Act, and Chain Migration or for Comprehensive Immigration Amnesty? Are you aware that a recent study projects a wide ranging Amnesty would cost all taxpayers $2.6 Trillion dollars, when we already owe the foreign investors $16 Trillion dollars. Learn more details at NumbersUSA . Citizen voters should phone Congress at the Washington central Switchboard at 202-224-3121.

    Have you viewed the latest doom and gloom development, that numerous cities as Stockton, Mammoth Lakes and soon others will be forced to be file bankruptcy? It’s even possible that the city of Chicago, maybe next on the federal list, owing to years of corruption within the political arena.
