The MSM and Left-wing activists LOVE to call border agents guarding our national security Nazis. Truth is however, more than 50% of those border patrol agents are in fact: Hispanic. These agents combat terrorists, human and drug traffickers, and prevent illegal entry into our country, yet more and more Democrats, especially certain Congress members liken Border Security to Nazi Germany.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Tweeted: “Asking to be considered a refugee & applying for status isn’t a crime. It wasn’t for Jewish families fleeing Germany. It wasn’t for targeted families fleeing Rwanda. It wasn’t for communities fleeing war-torn Syria. And it isn’t for those fleeing violence in Central America.”
Nope. Asking and applying for refugee status is not a crime, she’s right. BUT certain Congress members send their aids to the southern border to teach prospective illegals how to use our own loopholes against us; in fact how to LIE. They use children as a common bargaining chip; Literally renting them out to anyone in need. This is one of the main reasons DNA testing for all children will be employed at the border. We simply cannot give children back to people that are not even their parents.
Democrats are fostering this “separation from families” issuee by showing people how to cheat the system, yet they are the first to call foul on how the system works.
Refugee status is not a problem, however. It is given to those in need. The problem is, these “refugees” trekking hundreds, even thousands of miles to the US border, with children in-tow, are not following the correct procedure, putting those children at serious risk. Refugees don’t just get to skip over all the other countries on their way to the US. If you flee your country, you are supposed to find safe harbor and apply for refugee status in the first coountry that is not at war, etc.
Therein lies one of the problems. We simply cannot take in five countries worth of people. We don’t have the resources to process them in a timely manner. We are literally getting hundreds of thousands per month coming in through our borders. This is only the ones that we know about. Even more come through undetected. Constantly campaigning against our fine BPAs and ICE, even customs agents, and preventing them from doing their jobs, does not help anyone’s situation. It has even put their lives at risk.
The fact, however, is that “Hispanics constitute 30 percent of the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Officers and over half of Border Patrol Agents,” said a 2017 U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission Federal Agency Annual EEO Program status report. The Border Patrol is part of the CBP, which enforces the law at the border. But the media and the left repeatedly banged the drum that the men and women protecting our often-dangerous southern border are comparable to Nazi tormentors, when, in fact, more than half of those federal agents are minorities. And it only makes sense that a border being overrun by people who come from countries where the language spoken is Spanish, should be guarded by people more likely to be fluent in that language. The Department of Homeland Security Management Directive Annual Report further acknowledged, to that end, that, “CBP Officers and Border Patrol Agents require fluency in Spanish for initial placements along the southern border, Florida, and Puerto Rico, a requirement that is not present in the standard RCLF comparison. This job requirement, in conjunction with the high percentage of jobs being located in the southern Border States, greatly increased Hispanic representation in these occupations.”
When the Border Patrol was formally established in 1924, Latino agents were few. Sixty years later, they made up nearly 36% of the agency. By the end of 2017, Latinos were more 51 percent of the Border Patrol. “The Border Patrol is the only major federal law enforcement agency in the country that has more minorities than it does whites. And yes, this is an organization that overwhelmingly supports President Trump,” said Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, after a White House meeting with President Trump in January 2019.
Indeed, President Donald Trump declared war on illegal immigration in no uncertain terms in 2017 when he announced a plan to hire 5,000 more Border Patrol agents and at least 10,000 more Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers to enforce his ambitious immigration enforcement agenda. A year later, “10 out of the 11 people taking part in the Border Patrol citizens’ academy were Latino,” the L.A. Times reported. “Most of the nearly dozen participants in the El Centro Sector Border Patrol citizens’ academy were, in fact, of Mexican descent. The El Centro Sector is among the most vulnerable regions of the U.S.-Mexico border. From October 2018 to January, El Centro Sector Border Patrol agents apprehended at least eight illegal aliens who had been previously deported after being apprehended (most of them in California) and deported for committing sexual crimes – many of their victims were children, the CBP reported in early in 2019.
Border Patrol agents in the nation’s two busiest sectors of the U.S.-Mexico boundary — El Paso and Rio Grande Valley Sectors — apprehended an average of nearly 900 migrant families per day. “Smugglers and traffickers have caught on that the outdated laws, lack of resources, and bad court decisions effectively give them a ‘free ticket’ into America,” former U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Neilsen told the House Homeland Security Committee. “Make no mistake: the problem is getting worse.”-Breitbart
