Sheriff Calls On Obama To Send Military Into Mexico

President Obama should deploy the U.S. military across the Mexican border to work bilaterally to curb illegal immigration, declared Maricopa County, Arizona, Sheriff Joe Arpaio in a radio interview Sunday.

“If we are worried about the danger, then I would send the military across the border, work with their military bilaterally and get the job done,” said Arpaio. “That’s what I would do and we’d clean up this mess.”

“Of course, you have to get the Mexican president to okay it,” he added. “I would just go in there and have a few drinks with him and get the job done.”

Speaking on “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio” on New York’s 970 AM The Answer, the sheriff, known for his tough stance on illegal immigration, made in his remarks when asked how he would help clean up the immigration mess if he were advising the White House.

He continued: “Why do they have to go to court? The minute you cross the border put them on an airplane and send them back.”

 

Border Agents Forced To Serve As Nannies

U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents spend their days running the arriving unaccompanied alien children, or UACs, to showers, bringing blankets to be laundered, preparing food, and making trips to grocery stores.

These activities and more, including providing video games to the UAC’s, were extensively documented in a University of Texas at El Paso study titled, “Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) Project.” The research was funded by and partnered with the Department of Homeland Security.

Authors of the March 20 study, which received nearly no news media attention, conducted interviews and site visits with border agents and officials from the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, who work daily with UACs.

The study offers a glimpse into the daily work lives of border agents, who need to care for each detained UAC for an average of 40 hours, until he or she is moved to either a long-term DHS facility, or, more routinely, placed with a foster family or a U.S.-based relative. It is usually the border agents who transport the UACs to their ultimate destination.

The authors visited the Fort Brown Station in Brownsville, Texas, where they reported that every UAC who arrives and is scheduled for outside placement is first taken to get a shower and fresh clothes, with four agents alone dedicated to the shower runs.

“Every evening, four Border Patrol officers are responsible for having UACs transported to local shower facilities,” states the report. “Specifically, two buses/Border Patrol vans are used for shower runs.”

The study documents that in addition to the shower runs, the following duties are routinely conducted by Fort Brown personnel:

  • Border Patrol agents make trips to local grocery stores to buy the UACs food and drinks for their consumption while at the station;
  • Agents themselves prepare sandwiches for the UACs and family units;
  • The agents transport blankets used by the UACs to an off-site location to wash and dry.

The researchers found that although DHS maintains contracts with private firms to transport the UACs to their locations of placement, in reality it is usually the border agents who must escort the minors and even drive the buses. Usually the UACs are placed within a six-hour drive of the border facility.

The study notes the private firms are strained for transportation resources since most of their buses are being used to transport adult illegal aliens.

The same study also reveals that the nation’s Border Patrol officers say the massive surge in unaccompanied alien children crossing the U.S. border stems from a lack of deterrence and relative absence of consequences for breaking immigration law.

A little less than 10 percent of eligible Democratic voters came out on primary day, which translates into Mr. Cuomo having received the support of 6.2 percent of registered Democrats.

The reality, though, is that the Israeli “war crimes” scenario will likely be played out among highly partisan UN agencies, NGOs, and perhaps even the International Criminal Court.

Peace or the lack of it between Israel and the Palestinians matters not one whit when it comes to the long-term agenda of ISIS and other Islamists, nor does it affect any of the long-running inter-Arab conflicts and wars.

Rather than serving as a deterrent against terrorist attacks, Israel’s military strength and capabilities are instead looked at as an unfair advantage in the asymmetrical war in which it finds itself.
