Three hotlines have been set up for illegals where they can complain about Border agents who aren’t following Obama’s illegal amnesty policy.
Glenn Spencer of American Border Patrol said, “It is beyond belief that U.S. Senators can sit there and watch Barack Obama actually lead a wholesale invasion of our nation — and do nothing! Are they really that stupid? Or, as Terry Anderson said, — is it that they just ‘ain’t paying attention.’
DHS sent a memo announcing the hotlines to U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Illegals are asked to “please tell us about your experience” if they believe they were treated “contrary to the new DHS enforcement priorities.”
The hotlines cover all bases to make certain the illegal amnesty is enforced. The complaints go to overseers for the Border Patrol, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.
CBP’s notice included this invitation: “If you believe you (or a family member) were apprehended and processed by a Customs and Border Protection officer or Border Patrol agent contrary to the new DHS enforcement priorities, please tell us about your experience by contacting the CBP INFO Center.”
“Instead of supporting our agents, this administration has decided it is more important to find new ways to solicit complaints and invite ridicule against them,” said Shawn Moran (photo above), vice president of the National Border Patrol Council, the labor union that represents line agents. “We demand that this administration spend more time defending the men and women defending our nation and less time promoting the extreme agendas of pro-illegal-immigration organizations.”
It’s also a slap in the face to all citizens who no longer have any rights over who immigrates and who stays in the United States.
Mr. Moran, testifying to a Senate committee last week, said agents now have to go through a checklist when they encounter illegal immigrants. Those who give the right answers are likely to be released.
“The messaging on the training from CBP has been inconsistent at best,” he said.
Sen. Ron Johnson, Wisconsin Republican and chairman of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, said it sounded as though immigrants only had to say “magic words” to avoid arrest.
Obama has had complaint lines for years. He picked a fight with Congress over an advocacy office in ICE several years ago. Congress canceled funding so Mr. Obama changed the title and kept the same person doing the same work. He argued that he met the letter of the law.
