This is so absolutely absurd that I feel compelled to post this news today from the Washington Examiner…
Apparently via the Obama administration through DHS:
In a shocking reversal of policy, U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents are being told…
…to release illegal immigrants and no longer order them to appear at deportation hearings, essentially a license to stay in the United States, a key agent testified Thursday.
What’s more, the stand down order includes a requirement that the whereabouts of illegals released are NOT to be tracked.
“We might as well abolish our immigration laws altogether,” suggested agent Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council.
From the Washington Times,
The Obama administration has implemented an illegal immigrant “catch-and-release” policy, ordering Border Patrol agents not to even bother arresting and deporting new illegal immigrants, the head of the agents’ labor union told Congress on Thursday.
The new policy “makes mandatory the release, without an NTA (a “notice to appear” court order), of any person arrested by the Border Patrol for being in the country illegally, as long as they do not have a previous felony arrest conviction and as long as they claim to have been continuously in the United States since January of 2014. The operative word in this policy is ‘claim.’ The policy does not require the person to prove they have been here which is the same burden placed on them during deportation proceedings. Instead, it simply requires them to claim to have been here since January of 2014.”
Read the last two sentences again please.
Criminal networks with Latin American roots, such as MS-13 and the 18th Street gang, are using the administration’s open-door policy at the border to slip in recruits that are causing a huge spike in murder and violence throughout the nation.
“Established gangs have been able to transfer an unknown number of experienced foot soldiers from Central America to help colonize new criminal territory in the United States.”
“Immigration laws today appear to be mere suggestions,” “That fact is well known in other countries.” -agent Brandon Judd, Border Patrol
Folks, this is so unbelievably out of control that it boggles the mind. Although we’ve known that our southern borders have been open to the extent of massive illegal crossings, this new news today apparently ‘officially’ ties the hands of border patrol.
It is beyond absurd as to WHY Obama and his DHS is doing this. It is national suicide and is just BEGGING for terrorists and criminals to pour in. Why are we accepting this situation?
