Looks like former Obama offical who led Border Patrol are all in too. Conditions are getting worse and yet the president Trump haters continue to shout  their lies. 

 

Mark Morgan, who led the U.S. Border Patrol during Barack Obama's presidency, said Saturday that he's in total agreement with President Trump's proposed border wall.

Morgan echoed President Trump's message to America by saying the current situation at the southern border is a "national security and humanitarian crisis."

 

He said that, starting in 2014, the demographics of the people coming across the U.S. border started to change.

"Meaning, we saw an influx in family units and unaccompanied minors," Morgan said. "It was then, also, across the aisle on both sides that referred to that as a humanitarian crisis."

He added that "nothing has changed" regarding governmental strategy on border security for years.

Just trying to help you focus on what's important to Americans. According to Border Patrol statistics, the Office of Field Operations had seized close to 48,000 pounds of cocaine, 67,000 pounds of methamphetamine, and 5,000 pounds of heroin before the end of fiscal year 2018 alone. During the same period, Border Patrol agents also took a total of 566,281 enforcement actions and arrested 1,547 criminal aliens who were already wanted by law enforcement. 

In December alone, U.S. border agents apprehended a record number of family units– 27,518. They were among a total of 60,728 migrants attempting to illegally cross the border last month.

As President Trump pointed out in his address to the nation last night, “In the last two years, I.C.E. Officers made 266,000 arrests of aliens with criminal records including those charged or convicted of 100,000 assaults, 30,000 sex crimes, and 4,000 violent killings.”

While less than half of those surveyed (42 percent) agree with President Donald Trump’s assertion that the border is in “crisis,” another 37 percent concede that there is a “problem” — meaning 79 percent of voters believe the situation at the border is a serious issue.  Only 12 percent of voters polled said that the situation at the border is neither a crisis nor a problem.

 

Let that sink in a bit ... before you start screaming at the sky.

REYNOSA, Mexico, Jan 10 (Reuters) - Mexican authorities are investigating a battle between two suspected gangs that left 21 dead in a border town.  Tamaulipas state officials said that 21 bodies were found Wednesday in the city of Ciudad Miguel Aleman. Seventeen were burned, they said. 

The area is "greatly fought over" by traffickers of arms and drugs as well as those who help undocumented migrants to cross to the United States, he said.

Tens of thousands of people have been killed in Mexico during years of fighting between security forces and cartels warring over drug trafficking, extortion rackets and the exploitation of migrants.

 

Help reduce the murders and human exploitation by building more walls. Support the Border Patrol and Homeland Security with more border security that they are asking for. Yesterday (on TV) nationals from 40 different countries, besides those from Mexico and central America, were captured in Texas illegally trying to cross the border. 

 

In addition there is a humanitarian crisis being created to our south by sanctuary policies in California.

The last post about 15 murders per day by illegal immigrants was absurd! It's a perfect example of how Fox Viewers and Trump Cult members live in an alternate reality where the truth and facts are irrelevant. But they are driven by fear and lies, they don't want the truth.


I saw nothing about a "Cult" or Fox in the post. Why is it in your response?

As I stated previously Trump Cult members can't sleep at night because they're dreaming of Trump's wall. They've fallen for Fox propaganda that illegal immigration is the number one problem facing Americans. 

 

The facts are very clear, illegal immigration from Mexico has been going down steadily for the past decade. In addition, almost one half of all illegal immigrants came here LEGALLY and overstayed their visas. Even a Trump Cult member should be able to figure out a wall won't do anything to prevent that. 

 

The GOP controlled the White House, the Senate, and the House for 2 years and never came close to coming up with new laws and strategies to change our immigration laws. All of a sudden, it's the fault of Pelosi and Schumer. 

 

In addition, they never did anything to help Central American countries stablize their governments and make their countries safer, so they won't want to come here.

 

As Comrade Trump said, I will proudly shut down the government over my wall.

Central American minors and members of their families from rushing toward the USA, according to data released by U.S. Customs and Border Protection on Wednesday. Border Patrol agents apprehended 27,518 members of family units in December, the highest monthly total on record.

 

Over the last 6 months illegal crossing have increased. As many as are caught... how many more still  get through? 

 

We need the wall now!

CriticalThinking:   Fishslayer777 provided a link to a Homeland Security document in support of a border wall. There was nothing in there about illegal immigrants killing 15 Americans per day because that is NOT even close to being true.. That is a total myth made up by Fishslayer777. 

 

 

 

We can't debate people who refuse to use facts. All we ever do is fact-check while pointing out that their sources are bat poo crazy and lying to them.

If the US government can secure Area 51 without concrete walls or steel slat barriers, I'm pretty sure they can do the same thing with the southern border.

If 45 is able to "bully" through his "wall" agenda and thus circumvent Congress, what will be next?  Can't folks see how dangerous a precedent this would be?  If Trump is allowed to do this, we may be witnessing the foundational steps toward his true desire...dictatorship.


Since we are talking about securing the borders of our nation, the fulfillment of a campaign promise and something that the Dem leadership formerly agreed with, it seems strange to see the words "bully", "dnagerous", and "dictatorship".
