Hector Garza, U.S. Border Patrol Agent, told Fox News’ Harris Faulkner that “We’ve lost control of the border, as we are right now.”
Garza is vice-president of the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) and with the amount of news coming from the U.S.-Mexico border these days, he’s pleading with Congress to get something done because they are beyond tapped out.
Democrats called them undocumented migrants while the majority of Americans call them illegal aliens. Many are traveling “through” Mexico with a destination for the U.S. southern border.
“As it is right now, we are having a very hard time at the border,” Garza explained in recognition of the massive numbers of Central American migrant families being apprehended by Border Patrol agents after illegally crossing the border from Mexico.
Faulkner reacted to Garza’s comment about the condition of the border. “You said, ‘We’ve lost control of the border,’” Faulkner challenged. “That is different from what reporting I’ve seen. What do you mean when you say you’ve ‘lost control?’”
“Our Border Patrol chief has mentioned that over 50 percent of our agents are not securing the border and they’re now actually processing, transporting, and carrying for some of these asylum seekers,” Garza explained. “But I would challenge that percentage. I would put that percentage somewhere in the range of 75 percent.”
“What we’re seeing is that we’re not securing the border,” he emphasized. “We’re not out there catching those drug seekers or those drug smugglers or human smugglers. [Breitbart]
Democrats have been gaslighting the American public on the southern border issue. Gaslighting is a form of psychological manipulation that seeks to sow seeds of doubt in a targeted individual or in members of a targeted group, making them question their own memory, perception, and sanity. Using persistent denial, misdirection, contradiction, and lying, it attempts to destabilize the victim and delegitimize the victim’s belief.
This is what the Democrats are doing to Americans. Illegal aliens are the disease overwhelming our schools, support services, social security, hospital emergency rooms and taking jobs, scholarships, and opportunities away from our entry-level students and young adults.
Along with the Democrats, additionally, part of the problem lies with the Republican Congress that won’t allow President Trump to fix the border without consequences. The Republican Party is the real problem because it seems they tacitly back the Democrats with few exceptions. The Republicans allowed and even voted to keep Mueller in place even though they knew it was all a fraud and an illegal investigation.
Martial law is just about the only option left until that Wall gets built which is now proceeding at five miles per day or at least, that’s what we’re being told. Closing the border only affects the ports of entry and also stops commerce coming up from Mexico and South America. Yes it would crater Mexico’s economy, but it would also hurt ours on top of the Chinese tariffs. That’s not wise right before the election.
Maybe after, but not before. Closing the border isn’t a wise option if you’re looking to reelect the President because a good economy is the number one asset of any President being reelected.
But aside from that, I can’t see how anything can be accomplished with the gridlock in Congress besides the Wall which IS being built even as we speak. You can thank President Trump for that.
Everyone needs to be removed from the Congress and replaced with patriots that are loyal to Americans and not the agenda of globalists.
I’m beginning to think this is all orchestrated; the collapse of Venezuela, this mass illegal invasion. This is happening with alarming regularity to many Western countries throughout the world. What took hundreds of years to create, can be destroyed in mere decades. Sad.
