Immigration advocates – open borders leftists and foreigners here illegally – blocked driveways to the U.S. Border Patrol headquarters in Las Cruces on Thursday afternoon, saying it was an act of civil disobedience meant to oppose President Donald Trump’s proposed spending hike for border and immigration enforcement.
I repeat, they blocked the law enforcement headquarters! It’s not legal.
“This agency is responsible for family separation, just like ICE is, and this administration wants to give them more resources,” said Johana Bencomo, community organizer with NM Comunidades en Acción y de Fé, which coordinated the event with two other groups. “They want to give them more boots on the ground, but they operate with little accountability, so we want no more money going to them.”
This is the second time they’ve done this.
They faced no consequences but just let a cowboy take over an out-of-the-way and little-used refuge – cowboys get shot or go to the federal pen.
