Border Patrol Agents Slam Opponents Of Arizona Immigration Law

While the politicians and activists in Washington, DC and throughout the nation condemn the Arizona immigration enforcement law (SB1070), the news media has failed to cover the reaction by the people who patrol U.S. borders on a daily basis.

“We are receiving reports today that Eric Holder and DOJ have signaled that they are likely to challenge SB1070. If this development wasn’t so sad, it would be funny,” according to the membership of the National Border Patrol Council Local 2544, which represents U.S. Border Patrol agents in Tucson, Arizona.

While lamenting the disinterest in the Obama Administration for border security and immigration enforcement, Local 2544 officials said,”Now, [Attorney General Eric] Holder and DOJ [Department of Justice] apparently have found resources to challenge SB1070. This is an obvious political ploy, and Americans should be outraged if they actually go after a state for trying to do something about the out-of-control illegal immigration mess.”

“How many times have Americans heard lawmakers, mayors, governors, and immigration advocates when asked about Arizona enforcing immigration law, claim that their police officers aren’t authorized or trained to enforce immigration laws?” asks a career law enforcement officer from New York.

“Well, either these government leaders are too ignorant to to hold office or they’re out-and-out lying to the American people,” said former NYPD detective Sid Franes.

    I agree with you Bill. I have been hearing more and more about the movement to VOTE THEM ALL OUT and I agree wholeheartedly. Choose carefully who to support…. A third party would be very helpful.

    Folks our Government is not in the business of serving the people of our
    country. Our Elite Elected are silent about the take over of our Country
    and their silence in my opinion is disgraceful.Parasites obedient to their
    own desires and without any obligation to the citizens that elected them.
    Thes polecats should be demanding our laws be upheld with every inch
    of their corrupt body.
    What have we here? A two party system that does not understand what
    our laws are about or a group of hypocrital by standers.Folks we must
    face the facts we need a good house cleaning,both houses.
