Border agents powerless to stop violent gang members from entering

Liberal progressives certainly know how to tug at your heartstrings, especially regarding illegal immigrant children — whom they lovingly refer to as “dreamers.” Of course liberals would never address the crushing of the American dream for our own – because that’s not politically expedient.

In any event there are others with slightly less tender dreams who are crossing our porous border about whom liberals would rather not talk.

As the Washington Times reports, Border Patrol officials are swamped by the number of minors crossing illegally into the United States and frustrated that they can’t turn away known Mexican gang members. Chris Cabrera, vice president of the National Border Patrol Council Local 3307 in the Rio Grande Valley, said that confirmed gang members in Mexico — including those from Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13) — are coming into the country to be reunited with their families. This is what happens when you have Obama and his lawlessness eroding the sovereignty of our country.

It is illegal immigration, not undocumented workers, which is a serious problem for our Republic. It affects our national security, our economy, our healthcare system, our education system and local criminality.

“If he’s a confirmed gang member in his own country, why are we letting him in here? … I’ve heard people come in and say, ‘You’re going to let me go, just like you let my mother go, just like you let my sister go. You’re going to let me go as well, and the government’s going to take care of us,’” Mr. Cabrera told National Review.

“Until we start mandatory detentions, mandatory removals, I don’t think anything is going to change. As a matter of fact, I think it’s going to get worse,” Carbrera said. According to Border Patrol officials, officers must treat minors with gang-affiliated tattoos the same as anybody else wishing to cross the border.

Some have said reuniting families is being done as an “act of love” but the truth is it’s also being actively encouraged. Cabrera said local Central American media have played a role in encouraging the children to cross the border and he knows of television commercials that encourage people to go to the U.S. with their children because they won’t be turned away. Art Del Cueto, president of the National Border Patrol Council Local 2544 in Tucson, says Central American radio, television, other media, and religious groups have all encouraged people to move north to the United States.

And so the Cloward-Piven strategy of Barack Hussein Obama is working. By executive order fiat, he has created an untenable situation along our southern border which will destabilize our nation.

But I have to ask, is the Mexican government supporting this effort? When you consider the stringent Mexican immigration laws, how is it that these individuals from Central America so easily cross that border and transit Mexico?

Our economic situation in America is limping along, Americans are losing their jobs and seeing their wages depressed — but politically that’s not important to Obama — and the intransigent Eric Holder. Obama will never seal our borders and ads for food stamps and other government benefits in countries south of our border will continue.

As I’ve often asked, on whose side are Obama and his progressive socialist acolytes: Americans or anyone crashing the border? Based on the commercials running abroad, I think the answer is obvious.

  1. I’d like to ask my governor, Rick Perry, if he’s aware of what’s going on down on the border or is he too busy playing with California Socialites? We know Obama will not do anything to stop this, so where is the Texas State Guard? Where is my governor standing up for my state? What does Gregg Abbott have to say on this?

  2. Dems/libs/progs don’t care about these people(minorities/illegals). They are used like tools by them. They are the true racists. They can’t even be upfront with their BS.

  3. That is exactly right, he needs to fry for what he has done (apparently intentionaly)! He is not an American, he is a traitor, has committed treason! And not just once!

  4. They’re also trying to turn the largest red states; Texas and Arizona, blue.

    If that happens, then, its over.

    • Yes it is barry’s fault, He advertises free food stamps in Mexico. He has had six years to close the borders, there was already laws on the books to close the borders and he ignores that law and tells the border guards to let the people in. Why?
      Because it decimates our country, It burdens our country with medical costs to the tune of billions of dollars. Never mind the fact that it takes away jobs from our citizens.
      Disease is becoming rampant because sickly people are coming across the borders illegally. The health systems cannot take the millions of people here illegally, it is already overloaded with the illegals already here.
      But you don’t want to blame barry, when it is obvious to anyone he picks and chooses which laws he wants to follow

      • Your proof? Citation? nope none. Because they are coming in record numbers, they are therefore more being turned away. but that’s a numbers game not a result of barry’s doing

      • Well that’s probably true since the republicans are nothing but a little bit more moderate than liberals. Conservatives however do not want the border open

      • Again- a stupid statement. Barry started counting all illegals captured at the borders – something that wasn’t done in the past. Barry is good at cooking the books to give some sense of importance to his lies….and only very stupid ignorant uniformed people believe the lies and refuse to see how he changed the way the statistics are counted.

        And BTW – the unemployment is much higher if we counted it the way we did in the past. The inflation is also being masked – by changing how it is measured. (But the IQ of Democrats is also reportedly higher, because they also call anyone with a room temperature IQ as ‘smart’ and worthy of being rated at 110 IQ, even if they can’t understand basic statistics!)

      • “I always assumed we were living on the same planet ”
        I think you’re living on the outer rings of Saturn.
        BTW how come you liberal social

    • What a frickin’ idiot! Why can’t we just enforce existing laws? Why should American’s be forced to pay higher taxes to support these illegal immigrants? Why not tax Democrats ONLY to pay for this lawlessness…and see if their tune changes.

      All that will happen is the economy will collapse as more people can’t work or give up working – when it is easier to draw welfare and other government benefits instead of working hard and being taxed at ever higher tax rates.

      I am sure Democrats will be happy to rule the collapsed society.

      • So you are willing to pay the freight for these illegals? Sounds fine to me. But remember that some day, our kids and grandkids will tell us all to F’ off and they will refuse to pay the bill on the big debt that we handed them. They had NO part of creating the debt, and they should not be stuck with it. I hopy you have saved enough to go it by yourself when the government collapses. Too many kids will either “GO GALT” and not work and pay the huge tax rates – or they will opt to go for the free-loading ride that the liberals have been preaching – helping to further collapse our economy. The USA will be no better off than Greece or Argentina….and I am sure you will be happy!

      • Wow!!! Where are you getting your info?? I would advise you to take a walk outside and talk to people who don’t look like you. Where it’s true illegal get bennies, Obama didn’t start it. And plenty of rep presidents and law makers could have stopped or limited the$$. Gov. Perry is on TV talking about border security, but no one is asking him why HIS state is giving illegal bennies. That aside, if an illegal is working, taxes, SS are deducted from paycheck. plus pay sales tax.
        Our kids will have to pay our debt, tuff! Debt isn’t made by only one cost. I didn’t want the Iraq war, so I could have told Bush no?
        As for free loading kids. I would examine YOUR parenting skills if that’s the only option your kids think they have to succeed in life.

      • Hey turkey – lets let the Republicans pay for 65% of the cost of the Iraq war, and Democrats pay for 35% of the cost – because the Democrats also supported the war to remove Saddam…and it was a continuation of the Gulf War to remove Saddam from Kuwait. Almost everyone THEN agreed it was proper to do (read the Authorization To Use Military Force – overwhelmingly passed by both Houses of Congress, with 23 “WhereAs” clauses that were then and still are accurate and valid..)

        OTOH – the cost of the big debt spending by Obama – over $1 Trillion per year for each of the past 6 years – lets let 100% of the payment be done by Democrats, since EVERY Republican was opposed to the big spending deficit hogging programs jammed through by Obama and the Demcrats.

        As to ‘freeloading kids’ – all 3 of MY adult children have or are still serving the in military (2 Army, 1 Navy), all are conservative and ‘pay their own way’ ….and none of them are free loaders the way liberal kids tend to be.

        And illegals – many get paid under the table, don’t pay taxes or SS …only pay sales tax or property tax if they buy a house.

        Since the US is bankrupt – let’s fix the problem and not whine about who started it….lets end illegal immigration and deport all of them. Let’s stop borrowing an extra Trillion dollars each year ….and let’s end generous welfare programs and expect people who get welfare to EARN it.

      • Doll, 90% of what you said has nothing to go with what you or I said in the past.
        Good luck to your kids, esp the sailor. I was TMPO2 on the USS DIXON in San Diego bsck in the day.

    • Aside form the HuffPo being that unbiased bastion of journalism, how is it that Col. West’s party is at fault. Democrats proposed DREAM. Democrats don’t support border security. President Obama selectively enforces immigration law. These de facto amnesty provisions are a beacon to illegal immigrants and draw them in droves before the border security is tightened. Yup, Republicans are to blame!

  5. Do you think it is a mere coincidence we are seeing this huge serge in illegals at the same time the serge in Irag is happening? I don’t think so. We are being invaded by terrorists through our own borders.

  6. It’s time to invoke the Monroe Doctrine, if people are forced to flee
    due to “gang violence” then it is the responsibility of America to DEAL
    WITH THE THREAT AT HOME rather than abroad…the influx and civil
    invasion due to these “refugees” are a greater threat than anything in
    the middle east…time to use military force to remove the threat, either
    we make the hard decision of protecting ourselves from an imminent
    threat…or we ALL go down with the ship when the burden of the influx
    causes an entire collapse of our system.

    • Let the Democrats pay an additional 10% Income Tax to help pay for this surge – and see if they would suddenly want to tighten the boarder.

      For your information (not that you can think or would consider facts)…the 1980’s ‘amnesty’ that Reagan reluctantly approved was based on a Democrat promise that it would be limited (expecting 400K – we got more than 2 million), it would be one time (another lie – the Democrats want to do it again)…and it would also include toughening up and tightening the boarder (again – another democrat lie – they continue to obstruct any efforts to enforce existing laws.)

      But – Democrats want to collapse America…and they are succeeding. In no time, we will be like Argentina and Mexico – with crony capitalists, no true free market, most everyone in the middle class moved to lower class, and a big government. Destruction will be complete – and the impoverished will continue to think that the Democrats offer the best solutions – failing to recognize that they caused the problem! But I do think that the Democrats will win. (Think of John Milton’s writing for Lucifer….”better to rule in hell than serve in Heaven.” The Democrats are willing to trash America to guarantee their continual rule.)

  7. Allen, I agree with your sentiments, however I believe Mara Salvatrucha (MS13) is an El Savadorian gang, not Mexican. The biggest Mexican gang is Mexican Mafia (M13) or just the letter M in spanish, pronounced emay, the 13 signifies the 13th letter in the alphabet.

    • MS 13 originated in el salvador from salvadorian militias they are in El Salvador,
      Honduras, Guatemala, Mexico, Belize, Costa Rica, Nicaragua and
      Panama. and active in 42 states in the US and MS aligned under the “Sureño”
      (meaning southern in Spanish) umbrella to demonstrate its
      allegiance to the Mexican Mafi a (also known as La EME). “Eme” (the
      letter “M” in Spanish) is the 13th letter of the alphabet. Gangs such
      as MS- 13 aligned with La EME in southern California correctional
      facilities primarily for protection purposes.

      • I have also read that MS13 started in the Salvadorian neighborhoods in Los Angeles. They formed to protect themselves from the Mexican, Black and Asian gangs. The word Salvatrucha is a slang word meaning a person from El Salvador. Yes, the gang has become very prolific, ruthless, dangerous and has spread to many countries and states…

  8. It is time to send troops into Mexico. Mexico has allowed us to be invaded by terrorists from their nation. We should take over a band of Mexican territory about 500 miles south of our existing border. If this does not stop the illegal flow, then we should move another 500 miles south.

  9. Yes they are providing busing and other forms of assistance but that is not all. In Mexico laws have changed in large and small ways to create PRESSURE that people will move north.

    “Cartels” are just the dirty hand of the government and the government is just the dirty hand of the Mexican 1% who OWN the American political establishment. Bought with the 90 billion yearly in cash that the USA has been sending to mexico for at least the last 40 years.

    Two factors 1. the push by gun or law 2. radio TV and word of mouth telling the people to MOVE NOW to THE USA. paid for by ….. I have had the opportunity to speak with a us contractor who’s job it is to “Facilitate” that communication with people from central American nations and to get them through Mexico….

  10. No Don’t turn them away. If the are criminals or drug dealers Just shoot tem where they stand. It;s OK to do that. Why? because Obama has ignored it happening to residents and border crossers of other countries he has refused to help

  11. These worthless border patrol people are collecting paychecks and not doing the work… because they were ‘ordered to stand down’…? They were ordered – not to uphold the law, their oaths…? And they are complying…? Echos of Nuremberg… as in “They told me to (not to)… I was ordered not to…” Weak ass punks….
