On this sunny, but crisp Friday morning, members of the Arizona Unit of the National Socialist Movement and a crew from the BBC venture out to the infamous Vekol Valley to our favorite drug smuggling corridor to explain our interesting and important roles as volunteer civilian border operators. The illegal immigration issue is really heating up in Arizona. The government is taking actions that will make our border less secure and put more US Citizens in danger. Well, to put it simply, “The feces hit the rotor”. An after action report will follow at a later date.
Feds may reduce number of Guard troops at U.S. border
TUCSON - One year ago this week, Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was killed in a shootout in a remote smuggling area near here. Since then, federal authorities have ramped up the number of agents patrolling the entire southwestern border, particularly the region where he was shot.
"We've put more people into those canyons," said Alan Bersin, the Customs and Border Protection commissioner. "The level of violence has come down. ... We are taking back this corridor. The progress is quite obvious. We're determined that Brian Terry did not die in vain." http://www.azcentral.com/news/articles/2011/12/12/20111212arizona-border-troops-may-reduced.html#ixzz1gRqyMO8K
Having actually encountered the National Guard in some of the most useless positions along the Mexican border, I see little or no impact in them being deployed or not. The entire National Guard deployment on the Mexican border was a dog and pony show. Did they catch any bad guys? Did they seize drugs? No! They weren't allowed to.
On one occasion, we came across some guardsmen just east of the Port Of Entry in Sasabe, AZ. They all looked very youthfully inexperienced and were positioned where there was almost no chance of observing any unlawful activity. On top of that, guardsmen were ordered not to engage persons invading the United States, which was contrary to the oath they swore upon enlisting.
US to leave Mexican border crossing to rangers
(AP) BIG BEND NATIONAL PARK, Texas — The bloody drug war in Mexico shows no sign of relenting. Neither do calls for tighter border security amid rising fears of spillover violence.
This hardly seems a time the U.S. would be willing to allow people to cross the border legally from Mexico without a customs officer in sight. But in this rugged, remote West Texas terrain where wading across the shallow Rio Grande undetected is all too easy, federal authorities are touting a proposal to open an unmanned port of entry as a security upgrade. http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-501363_162-57341011/us-proposes-unmanned-border-crossing-with-mexico/
The way I see it, they've (the Feds) gone totally INSANE!!! By the spring, kiosks could open up in Big Bend National Park allowing people from the tiny Mexican town of Boquillas del Carmen to scan their identity documents and talk to a customs officer in another location, at least 100 miles away.
The Government has not considered the possibility that documents may not be in the hands of the rightful possessor. This is an open door to fraud and quite the opposite of a "security upgrade" People would have to be stupid to believe this horse shit could work correctly. Perhaps, these are some of the same idiots and morons that cooked up "Fast and Furious".
I learned quite a bit about fraudulent documents while working for A.C.F. (Arizona Coupons and Flyers) General Media Corp. in Mesa, AZ some years ago, there were three Sergio Espinoza's on the payroll. By the way, A.C.F. did knowingly hire illegal aliens. The CEO, Dan Klein, even wanted me to personally find and hire them. Each “Sergio” was committing fraud and/or identity theft.
The government is suggesting that kiosks will keep the wrong people on the correct side of the border? Here's the problem... Who is going to check to make sure that that identity card wasn't sold to somebody else? Who is going to physically match the identity card to the person holding it? Is the US Government going to rely on the "honor system"?
'Sad day for America,' Arpaio says of DOJ report
PHOENIX (AP/KPHO) -Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio says a scathing U.S. Justice Department report about his office's law enforcement tactics marks what he calls "a sad day for America as a whole." http://www.kpho.com/story/16333703/arpaio-reacts-for-doj-report
Paul Babeu Doesn't Trust DOJ Report on Joe Arpaio's Racial Profiling Practices; Says Timing's Meant to Distract From "Fast and Furious"
Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu says he hasn't had a chance to read the U.S. Department of Justice's report on Joe Arpaio's committing some of the worst acts of racial profiling in U.S. history, but that isn't stopping him from chiming in and bashing the feds. http://blogs.phoenixnewtimes.com/valleyfever/2011/12/paul_babeau_doesnt_trust_doj_r.php
Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu said, "I have little faith and trust in the U.S. Department of Justice after the actions, subsequent cover up and failure to accept responsibility regarding Operation Fast and Furious. The fact they chose today to release their findings was only done to take the attention away from themselves. Today marks the one year anniversary since the murder of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry."
Of course the "Arpaio hating" Phoenix New Times and their anarchist/Commie followers mock the Pinal County Sheriff's legitimate concerns with profanity laced comments.
“I'm a 9th generation American and patriot (1737). My forefathers served in the Pennsylvania Militia. On June 27, 1781, they were called to perform a tour of duty. I'm still protecting freedom and securing the border, 274 years later.” --Harry L Hughes III
