Border Patrol Agents Slam Their Superiors And Obama Administration

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 that Eric Holder and DOJ have signaled that they are challenging 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 hold office or they’re out-and-out lying to the American people,” said former NYPD detective Sid Franes.

“Someone needs to take a very serious look at what happened to some of the high-ranking folks David Aguilar promoted. Why did they suddenly “retire” and why was one fired? Were they worthy of positions of high public trust?” said members of the National Border Patrol Patrol Council.

And now… the rest of the story. …..

    Republican or democrats it is all about VOTES. If we insist of changing the meanining of citizenship and protect our voting rights we will solve the immigration issue fast. None of the Republicans really stick their neck out.

    The fact to ask as I have done in my newsleter is “why do you have to give them citizenship, residency will allow them to work and be legal”
    Can any one see that really the meaning? Without a vote these people will be of no value to them and you will see few politicians going to bet for them. And it is not the Mexican that wanted citizenship they like being Mexican as long as residency allows them to work tat is all they want so who is pushing on them for that citizenship? Politicians.
