Border Patrol: ‘We Are Simply Overwhelmed’

Follow on FacebookFollow on Twitter

Eight days before Americans elect a new president, Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions on Monday laid out the stakes as immigration enforcement along the U.S.-Mexico border continues to deteriorate.

In a news release, the senator’s office declared a “crisis at our southwest border — one that in many ways exceeds the crisis we saw just two years ago, one that further undermines the integrity of our immigration system, but one that the most of the media has elected to ignore.”

Sessions, chairman of the Senate Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest, arguably is the Senate’s foremost expert on immigration. He also has been an important surrogate for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. – READ MORE

    One of many of my Good Reasons for wholeheartedly endorsing, supporting and fully intending to vote for Donald J. Trump for President in November are:

    1) Illegal Aliens / Our Nation’s Wide Open Southern Border / Failure of Our Government to Protect the American People

    Donald J. Trump mentions the cruel and untimely death of Kate Steinle in many of his speeches and characterizes her death as a “sacrifice on the altar of open borders.” Why does he say that?

    Kathryn (Kate) Steinle, 32, a medical device saleswoman who loved to travel and dance, was strolling leisurely along a pier at a scenic San Francisco waterfront with her father after enjoying a good dinner at a nearby restaurant. Kate Steinle was murdered in cold blood for no reason at all by an Illegal Alien named Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez. Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez wasn’t just Any Illegal Alien, he wasn’t your average, every day, run of the mill Illegal Alien. No, Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez was a Professional Illegal Alien; Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez had chosen being an Illegal Alien as his lifestyle, as his career, as his job, it was “who he was and what he did” (even though being a homeless Illegal Alien in San Francisco doesn’t provide much of a career path.)

    Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez was also a criminal (in addition to his crimes of repeatedly entering the country illegally) whose criminal history prior to murdering Kate Steinle included 7 prior felony convictions. Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez had been deported from the U.S. back to his homeland of Mexico 5 times. Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez was on probation when he murdered Kate Steinle.

    What was Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez doing on that pier that day in San Francisco? The last time Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez was deported he didn’t waste any time illegally re-entering the United States and heading straight for his “safe space” – San Francisco, a Sanctuary City.

    Kate’s father, holding his daughter in his arms as she lay dying, reported that Kate “… just kept saying, ‘Dad, help me, help me.’”

    Let’s let the memory of Kate Steinle dying in her father’s arms sink in for a moment before we move on.

    The horrific, absolutely unnecessary (would not have happened if our borders were secure) murder of Kate Steinle by the Illegal Alien repeat offender Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez is just one data point of thousands of murders, robberies, rapes, home invasions, burglaries, gang assassinations, gang initiation murders and of course, the most common crime committed by Illegal Aliens – Drunk Driving without a driver’s license or car insurance, often resulting in Vehicular Homicide. When I bring up these facts in my comments on websites or link to news articles of Drunk Driving Vehicular Homicide committed by Illegal Aliens on Facebook the standard response is: “Oh yea, well American Citizens do all these crimes too!” My response is: That’s True. We do have plenty, more than enough, more than our share of home grown American criminals who drink and drive and kill people. I agree. But puzzle me this: Why do we need to Import More Drunk Drivers and Criminals from Foreign Countries? They don’t have an answer to that question.

    I read an editorial recently in my local newspaper written by a local sheriff who pointed out the other rarely discussed, but terribly negative impacts on Our Nation of having a Wide Open Southern Border. For example, Human Smuggling which too often is Sexual Slavery – girls from Mexico and South America being transported by coyotes into America to be deposited in brothels across our nation. But it gets even worse: the coyotes are in the habit of raping women they are guiding through Mexico on their way to America. There are these things called Rape Trees along the paths that illegal aliens take to enter America. The Rape Trees are festooned with women’s and girl’s panties that belonged to the women and girls that the coyotes raped. American ranchers along the Southern Border also often find decomposing bodies or skeletal remains of illegal aliens discarded along the human smuggling trails. As evil and demented as the above realities are, it gets even worse, specifically the Mexican Drug Cartels. Hundreds of thousands of innocent and not so innocent Mexicans have been caught up and killed in the Wars between competing Mexican Drug Cartels. The violence, brutality, barbarity and savagery of the Mexican Drug Cartels rivals that of the Islamic State (the Mexican Drug Cartels occasionally decapitate their enemies and deposit the heads on sidewalks in the local town to drive home their message to rival gangs).

    In Fiscal Year 2015 the U.S. Border Patrol (USBP) reported 148,995 Illegal Alien Apprehensions from Countries Other Than Mexico (OTM). Where are these people from? Iran, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Pakistan, Cuba, Brazil, Ecuador, China, Russia, Yemen, Albania, Yugoslavia and Afghanistan. The Office of Detention and Removal Operations (DRO) within Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has a real problem getting Other Than Mexican illegal immigrants out of the United States. Even though most OTMs enter the U.S. from Mexico, Mexico will not accept them. Instead, they may only be sent to their native country, or any third country that will accept them. The DRO lacks adequate bedding space to house every OTM apprehended by ICE. As a result of this, the majority of OTMs apprehended by the USBP are released into the interior of the United States with notices to appear before an immigration judge. Most of these released OTMs fail to show up for their hearings and are not ultimately removed.

    Bill Gertz recently wrote an article for The Washington Free Beacon titled “Southern Command Warns Sunni Extremists Infiltrating From South – Islamists freely cross U.S. border with help of S. American alien smugglers”. The opening paragraphs read,

    “Sunni extremists are infiltrating the United States with the help of alien smugglers in South America and are crossing U.S. borders with ease, according to a U.S. South Command intelligence report.

    The Command’s J-2 intelligence directorate reported recently in internal channels that “special interest aliens” are working with a known alien smuggling network in Latin America to reach the United States.”

    The Illegal Aliens are importing infectious diseases considered to be largely eradicated in this country; including Dengue Fever, Chikungunya, Drug-resistant TB, and Scabies. Additionally, many of the migrants lack basic vaccinations such as those to prevent chicken pox or measles, leaving America’s young children and the elderly particularly susceptible.

    The examples above are just the tip of the iceberg of the evils, corruption, degradation, violence and depravity (not to mention illegal drugs and the network of gangs in America needed to distribute the drugs or the enormous downward pressure Illegal Aliens have on American’s wages and the standard of living of Americans competing with Illegal Aliens for work) that are flowing unhindered into our country through Our Nation’s Wide Open Southern Border.

    If you really want to know the full extent of the corruption, crime, degradation and destruction being inflicted upon Our Nation read Ann Coulter’s book, “Adios, America: The Left’s Plan to Turn Our Country into a Third World Hellhole”.

    Donald J. Trump says “Build the Wall (and make Mexico pay for it)” and I concur wholeheartedly.

    This is what I said. We will be attacked. We have young strong male Muslims shipped in last month to attack also. Then Obama will unleash the UN soldiers in us and declare marshal law.
