Barack Obama will cut 50% of of the budget for aerial surveillance along the U.S.-Mexico border. This is taking place while we have a surge of migrants from Central America and Cuba along the southern border, including known gang members. He’s doing this at the same time he’s doubling “investments” in green energy. He funds according to his agenda.
Texas just requested more surveillance and Obama decided to do less.
Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott and Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-Texas wrote a bipartisan letter to DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson which is like writing to bag of rocks. They requested:
Any decrease in aerial observation is not only imprudent, but contradicts the very mission of border security enforcement. In order to ensure we are doing everything possible to effectively secure the border, we request immediate information on the metrics used to determine that a 50 percent reduction in aerial resources would be sufficient to support this important border security operation. Additionally, we request detailed plans on how the cuts will impact staffing, resource allocation, and operation levels in the three support sectors (Laredo, Rio Grande Valley and Tucson). If these decreases continue, what resources will DHS utilize to backfill any gaps this reduction presents?
This is absolutely insane and traitorous. Why isn’t the entire congress up in arms? This is why Donald Trump is so popular. He was the first to talk about this issue honestly while Jeb Bush and John Kasich talked about amnesty.
When this information came out on Thursday, we were also told that Border Patrol has been told to release illegal immigrants unless they have committed serious felonies in the U.S. and unless the Patrol has literally seen them cross the border.
Immigration expert Jessica Vaughn of The Center for Immigration Studies said that “Border patrol agents are told not to process people that they catch unless they actually see them physically cross the border. They’re not even trying to enforce the law or even put any pretense of enforcing the law now. It’s absolutely crazy, reckless, policy, like putting up a white flag to illegal immigration. It makes no sense at all.”
“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,” Vaughn told congress at Thursday’s hearing.
She added that “the tide of new young people, many of whom have already been exposed or involved in street gangs at home, has provided a huge pool of new recruits for the gangs here. Gangs such as MS-13 and 18th Street are enjoying a brutal revival in certain parts of the country and are establishing themselves in new places.”
“Violent transnational gangs such as MS-13 have taken full advantage of the Obama administration’s welcome mat to swell their ranks here, contributing to a noticeable spike in gang violence in certain localities – with tragic results.”
I ask you, what is Barack Obama doing? What is he willing to do to increase his numbers of Democrat voters?
