Every so often, you are presented with a news item that you have to look at more than once and scratch your head. You look at the information, think to yourself no way this happened. Then look at it again. Sure enough, it happened.
This habit of stupid ideas from Washington, unfortunately, is on the rise. From foreign policy that even the Marx Brothers would dismiss as too crazy to implement to energy policy that no one can understand, the liberal establishment has come off these last years as one large Chinese Fire drill.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents released a group of 40 women who illegally entered the United States from Central American countries at a bus station in south Texas. The influx of women and children illegally crossing the border from Mexico has been increasing steadily over the past year.
The women from Central America were seen being dropped off Thursday night by ICE officials at the bus station in Laredo, Texas, KGNS reported. The women were released with their personal belongings and a promise to appear before an immigration judge at some point in the future.
“President Obama has rolled out the red carpet for illegal immigrants,” Border Patrol Agent Hector Garza said. Garza spoke in his role as president of the National Border Patrol Council Local 2455. “Most of the illegal immigrant families and unaccompanied children used to cross in the Rio Grande Valley. Now we see massive numbers in the Laredo Sector as well.”
After being apprehended by Border Patrol agents, the women were processed by ICE officials and taken to the Laredo bus station with a promise to appear in court at a later time. The destination for the women left at the bus station was not reported, but it is likely they will head to Houston or San Antonio before moving on to locations around the country. The women had confused looks on their faces, Garza reported. “It’s an uncertain future for them and the new White House administration vowing to address this two-year surge next year,” she stated.
In November 2016, a total of 3,195 illegal aliens were apprehended in the Laredo Sector. These included 244 Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) and 175 Family Unit Aliens (FMUA). FMUA’s are defined by CBP as a child under 18 years old, parent or legal guardian) apprehended with a family member.
November saw the fifth consecutive month where the numbers of total apprehensions along our southwest border increased. CBP officials have responded to the growing number of UAC and FMUA apprehensions, particularly in Texas, by opening, as previously reported by Breitbart Texas. The facilities are capable of holding 500 people each, officials stated. The FMUA and UACs apprehended and detained by Border Patrol and CBP while awaiting transfer to the Department of Health and Human Services or ICE for removal or detention processing.
Earlier this year, Border Patrol agents in the Laredo Sector had to risk their lives to apprehend some of the illegal immigrants who were left by smugglers to drown in the Rio Grande River. One of the agents jumped into the river to rescue the four illegal aliens. He reached the group in time and managed to pull them to safety.
“Our agents frequently put their lives at risk to apprehend these illegal border crossers and stop the flow of drugs, despite the risks taken to make these apprehensions, the Obama Administration simply lets them go. It wears on our agents’ morale. We want to do our job and protect this country.”
“Now, we are learning that many of the immigrants processed by ICE are quietly released on their recognizance with a promise to appear for an immigration hearing at some future date,” Garza concluded. He also noted that until given more support from the top things will continue. “Leadership has to come from the top.”
Now, it might have happened that our Administration confused ICE with and thought that fishing regulations would work; perhaps somewhere we adopted a sort of ‘catch and release’ policy by mistake. But alas, that would much too simplistic of an answer. The sad fact remains that either the Obama Administration does not understand how the law works or simply does not care.
This act typifies a government in denial. Just because someone is not detained or processed into the system does not mean that the problem somehow does not exist. The bureaucrats somehow are under the belief that if we cannot see the problem, then it does not exist. Paperwork no longer reflects reality, but now has become a sort of distorted reality. The swamp gas has eroded the last brain cells of the insider.
Consequently, by releasing these women without counting them serves its purpose. Every Illegal Immigrant not processed into the system allows the liberal establishment and the outgoing Obama Administration to brag about drops in illegal immigration. Instead of reporting numbers that would alarm even the most liberal in society, the numbers are smudged by such underhanded tactics. If November saw the fifth consecutive month of increased apprehensions, we have to wonder how many more simply were put on a bus, given a ticket and possibly a hug.
Even though the Obama Administration now counts down to the last few days, the culture that created this Obama mess still permeates American Government. Unfortunately, it simply does not reside in just the Democratic Party. As you look closely enough you see Republican lawmakers that are just as willing to partake on crazy policies. We must remain vigilant and not accept things at face value.
will face opposition for the wall and tougher immigration laws from both the left and the right. The left foolishly believes that by opening the border America values and prosperity will engulf the world. They feel that somehow that allowing all to enter the world becomes a better place. Putting it politely liberals are mistaken, putting in bluntly they are crazy, leaving them in power would make us suicidal.
Then we are left with the RINOs and their corporate sponsorship. In election years, of course, they talk a good game, but after the votes are tallied, and the cameras have turned, they show their true colors. To them, illegal labor is cheap labor for their corporate system. Why pay a few extra bucks to an American worker when an illegal will do it for a fraction? To them, open borders equal cheap labor.
