Fox News seems to have been the first (and maybe only?) news organization to report that the Øbama regime intends to close nine Border Patrol stations across four states. Nobody except mouthpieces for the administration is pleased with this move. Pleas to the Border Patrol chief and the Dept. of Homeland “Security” by Border Patrol agents, Texas politicians and town sheriffs have fallen on deaf ears, with U.S. Customs and Border Protection which responded:
“These deactivations are consistent with the strategic goal of securing America’s borders, and our objective of increasing and sustaining the certainty of arrest of those trying to enter our country illegally,” CBP spokesman Bill Brooks said in a statement. “By redeploying and reallocating resources at or near the border, CBP will maximize the effectiveness of its enforcement mandate and align our investments with our mission.”
True, the stations to be closed are in northern and central Texas and three other states, but according to the story, they see plenty of action. The important question is: will this be the beginning of a trend? Is it the goal of the Øbama regime to make the Border Patrol as sad as the TSA has become in its almost ridiculous desire to be politically correct?
It should be noted that the Øbama administration has attempted to close nine border stations (or create “unstaffed” stations) on the U.S. – Canada border. “Oddly” enough, the attempted closure of a “state-of-the-art border facility just a few hundred metres away in Churubusco, N.Y., using seven million dollars of federal infrastructure money, was opposed by Democrat NY Senator Chuck Shumer”, who stated
..our businesses and construction workers in the North Country depend on this project to meet their bottom line and provide for their families.
Surely a political consideration, and most surely one that Texas will not receive.
Wouldn’t a better solution be to put the unemployed to work instead of paying them to stay home, increasing the number of Border Patrol agents and building a more secure border, a border that is proving to be increasingly porous to illegals, drug traffickers and terrorist groups? Sure, they put those drones to use on the borders, mostly to get drug traffickers, a program which the LA Times said has been mostly ineffective. If it is your goal to buy votes by giving tacit amnesty to illegals by choosing not to prosecute the transgressors (invaders?), then what is the point?
Given the “selective prosecution” of illegals handed down by imperial edict from the White House, and now this selective shutdown of Border Patrol stations, what else will we need to create the perfect storm of border disintegration and collapsing the sovereignty of the country? Will the next “idea” be to allow more “sanctuary cities” or let Mexico annex the U.S.? Seriously, if you wanted to destroy the sovereignty of the country, could you think of better ways to do it?
Maybe it is time for another chapter to be added to the video from the people that made “If I wanted to see America fail”. Or another video titled “If I wanted America to become a third wold nation”. Sadly, this stuff is writing itself.
