The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 specifies that any criminal immigrant who returns to the United States after having been deported previously shall be incarcerated for at least two years. How could these two confessed murderers be walking around free in the United States if the US Border Patrol is following the law?
The answer is obvious. The US Border Patrol is not following the law. A more telling question is, "Why?"
They're not following the law because they are being told not to. They are being willfully ordered to stand down! By whom? Well, the US Border Patrol is an Executive Agency under the direct control of the President.
Chris Cabrera, the Vice President of the Border Patrol Union, recently told Neil Cavuto on Fox News that morale in the Border Patrol is at an all time low because they are being prohibited from doing their jobs. This was exemplified this week by a video of a trucker pulling up to a border check point in Texas who answered the Border Agent's query "Are you an American citizen?" with the counter question "Does it matter?" The Agent's disgusted response was "Not any more, unfortunately!"
Cabrera also told Cavuto that "We've had a couple [catch and release criminal immigrants] that admitted to murder in their home countries." This is another gross violation of the Immigration and Nationality Act, which specifies that those guilty of a crime in their home countries are not eligible for immigration to the United States.
And it's not only the threat of murder to which Obama's policies are exposing the American people. Mr. Cabrera has also revealed that , "We're having a lot of diseases coming in and some we haven't seen in decades."
This debacle is not a result of Obama's dither, denounce, and distract leadership style. This is a concerted effort to destabilize the United States – to what end is, at this point, immaterial. Our only consideration now is that it must be stopped.
The only practicable solution to a porous border and a disillusioned and deliberately impeded US presence on our borders is for the border States to take responsibility for their own security and the safety of their citizens. Texas, Arizona, and New Mexico need their own border patrols, reporting only to the Governors of their States. The Texas Rangers were created in 1835 to protect the Texas border. We did it before and we can do it again.
