Kirstjen Nielsen reiterates President's stance on border clashes

Rumors have been flying ever since the midterm elections that Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen is on her way out. The President hasn’t been happy with her performance. Some say Chief of Staff John Kelly is the only reason she hasn’t been fired already.

Of course, Kelly may be on his way out as well.

Despite the internal turmoil in the White House, the migrant caravans at the border seem to be keeping everyone heading in the same direction. The President has spoken many times about preventing illegal border crossings and shutting down ports of entry if things get out of hand. Now, his DHS Secretary is reiterating his stance.

“DHS will not tolerate this type of lawlessness and will not hesitate to shut down ports of entry for security and public safety reasons.”

She may be on her way out, but chances are slim she’d be fired while the topic of the migrant caravans are still a hot topic. In the meantime, it seems she’s trying to keep her job.

If you don’t want militia patrolling the border, then secure the border without them

If you dont want militia patrolling the border then secure the border without them

If the southern border of the United States was properly secured by the government, there would be no need for armed militia to patrol it. If you have any argument you perceive as valid that contradicts this claim, please feel free to express it. I’d love to hear it.

But there won’t be valid arguments against this claim because the claim is purely logical. It’s easy for politicians on both sides of the aisle to scream about armed militia detaining illegal immigrants and asylum-seeking migrants crossing the border, but their screams are irrelevant as long as the borders are so porous, the laws are so restrictive in addressing illegal immigrants, and the border patrol is forced to be stretched so thin by the sheer numbers of people crossing over.

Following the arrest of Larry Mitchell Hopkins, 69, also known as Johnny Horton Jr, a spotlight has finally been placed on United Constitutional Patriots and similar militia groups. His arrest may be on the record as happening because he is a felon who was found in possession of a firearm and ammunition, but the actual reason he was arrested is because his organization was noted for their apprehension and holding of illegal immigrants. They and others have been patrolling the border in search of those who have crossed over illegally, knowing he CBP is overwhelmed.

I would love to have a situation in which border patrol had plenty of men, the border wall was build, technology was improved, resources were properly allocated, and laws were changed to plug the loopholes currently being abused by illegal immigrants and asylum-seeking migrants. But we don’t have that situation, and while I’m not crazy about an armed militia patrolling the border, I also can’t blame them. This is their country. It’s our country. This nation is supposed to be sovereign, but if the government is unwilling to take the proper actions necessary to defend our sovereignty, where does that leave us?

If the border were properly secured, armed militia like the United Constitutional Patriots would have no reason to patrol it. But the border isn’t secure and many feel the only recourse is to do it themselves. Can you blame them?

Illegal alien continued assaulting border patrol agent even as they tumbled down a hill

Illegal alien continued assaulting border patrol agent even as they tumbled down a hill

Tucson Sector Border Patrol agents arrested a 37-year-old Ecuadorian national after he assaulted an agent atop a mountain south of Tucson Wednesday evening. The man continued punching and kicking the agent even as they slid down the hillside.

He was subdued only after additional agents came to restrain him.

Two Mexican nationals traveling with him were also arrested during the incident.

Opinion

We’ve all seen the sad images and videos on mainstream media of helpless mothers with three children trying desperately to get to the United States where they will certainly become productive and patriotic members of society. That’s the image the left wants embedded in our brains, but it’s not the reality at the border.

Yes, there are large groups of migrants coming over nonstop with hopes of taking their piece of the taxpayer-funded pie. But there are also criminals coming over who will do anything, including harm or kill border patrol agents, if that’s what it takes for them to stake their claim to what they want from America and Americans.

There are dangers at the border that rarely get reported. These brave border patrol agents need a wall, more men, better technology, and more facilities to house those coming over. They need these things now, but Democrats continue to demand they try to secure our borders with both hands tied behind their backs. If one were conspiracy-minded, one might think the Democrats are doing it on purpose so more illegal immigrants will come into our country.

Hmm.

“Assaults highlight safety concerns for agents who often encounter and arrest multiple subjects in remote and isolated locations in rugged terrain.” – CBP Statement

Final Thoughts

The image of helpless migrants carrying little babies and peacefully surrendering to border patrol is only part of the picture. Border patrol agents are put in harms way daily, yet Democrats will not give them the resources they need.

Border patrol spots drone used to help illegal immigrants breach the border

Human smuggling has gone high tech. At least it can be verified. At this point, it’s likely people have been using drone technology to assist in getting illegal immigrants across the border for a long time. It’s been used for drug trafficking as well, so thinking this is a new occurrence is likely erroneous.

But now we have proof-positive the efforts to get criminal illegal aliens across the border is a sophisticated operation.

Two of those apprehended were known gang members and one was a convicted sex offender, according to the Border Patrol. They now are being held in U.S. jails pending criminal prosecution.

Opinion

An under-reported challenge facing border patrol is the rise of criminal illegal immigrants crossing the border, sometimes not for the first time. We hear all about the groups of dozens or hundreds of migrants crossing the border and seeking to get apprehended so they can claim asylum and be released into the interior, but what about those who aren’t seeking asylum, who don’t want to be caught, and who are likely part of criminal elements?

Every border patrol agent who is tasked with processing paperwork for the migrants is a border patrol agent taken away from the necessary work of apprehending the criminals crossing over. This is why the use of drone technology is so discouraging. Right now, we have to rely on our technological prowess to cover much of the border. With the bad guys also using technology to thwart these efforts, it makes the already-difficult job of patrolling our border even more difficult and dangerous.

The left needs to understand that not everybody crossing over is just seeking a better honest life. Many are crossing the border for drugs, to join gangs, and even specifically to commit acts of violence against Americans. We need border patrol focusing on catching these bad guys, not serving paperwork to people who are unwilling to wait in line and enter the country legally.

Quote

“Approximately two minutes after the object returned back to Mexico for the third time, a group of 10 subjects made an illegal entry into the U.S. in the same area in which the object had been traveling. This is the first known time in recent history that a drone has been utilized as a ‘look-out’ in order to aid in illegal entries in the El Paso Sector.” – Border Patrol Statement

Final Thoughts

With so much time, money, and manpower used by border patrol to apprehend the migrants wanting to be caught, those who don’t want to get caught have the advantage. These are the dangerous elements not seeking asylum. They seek to do harm.
