As if the job of a border patrol agent is not dangerous enough, they are now being faced with threats from their own supervisors that if they speak to the press they could be facing criminal charges. So much for freedom of the press.
According to a recent report from the Center for Immigration Studies, over 36,000 illegal criminals with over 88,000 convictions were released in the general population. Of the list of crimes included the following:
- 193 homicide convictions (including one willful killing of a public official with gun)
- 426 sexual assault convictions
- 303 kidnapping convictions
- 1,075 aggravated assault convictions
- 1,160 stolen vehicle convictions
- 9,187 dangerous drug convictions
- 16,070 drunk or drugged driving convictions
- 303 flight escape convictions
So in addition to the number of criminals above add the recent surge of over 47,000 illegal children being bussed in from borders. MSNBC host Chris Hayes last week had new MSNBC contributor and Telemundo anchor Jose Diaz-Balart on his show to explain this massive surge of illegals and Balart went on to report himself that indeed the people of Mexico were being told via commercials and other media communications to send your children over the borders now because the Obama administration will not deport them.
This recent crisis also explains the new push for amnesty by the Democratic Senate and some members of the GOP in the House who are trying to push an immigration bill to once again promise tighter enforcement but grant amnesty to 12 million illegals who are in the United States now. The projection of impact on the U.S. labor force with this piece of legislation (in the next decade) will add more than 33 million green card immigrants to the number of LEGAL citizens looking for employment.
We remember how well that worked out for Reagan and George W. Bush when they tried to appease Latino voters. Wonder if Hamas or ISIS members will join in on the charity of this administration and visit our borders as well?
