In my last post, WHAT IS THE MOST DANGEROUS ANIMAL?, we considered the need for good fences, that is proper border control. Well, our new president may be trying to fix the problem, but the swamp is not helping. Anyone who thinks bringing hordes of poor and impoverished people into our nation, putting them on welfare, and letting them vote is good for our country is daft. However, there are business people who want the cheap labor. Greed! Greed has led to the downfall of more than one nation.
The Trump administration reinstated a de facto catch-and-release policy for illegal immigrants nabbed crossing the border in Texas, with Border Patrol agents being told Wednesday not to even bother turning them over for speedy deportation because there was no bed space, a top agent said.
The problem, said Brandon Judd, an agent and president of the National Border Patrol Council, is that illegal immigration has surged once again after dipping during the early months of President Trump’s tenure.
That has left the deportation agency, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, struggling to find beds to hold the illegal immigrants. As a result, Border Patrol agents who bring apprehended people to ICE are turned away.
“We’re going to have to release them out our front door,” Mr. Judd said. “Even if we try to turn them over to them, they’re just not going to take them.”
He said ICE’s San Antonio office, which handles most of the traffic from the Texas border, said it would have to refuse to take any family units the Border Patrol tries to turn over and will soon reject even non-family migrants. (continued here)
Please write your congressmen. Let them know you want more money spent to keep illegal aliens and illegal drugs out of our country. Please demand a merit-based immigration system.
