The House plans to hold endless hearings on the conditions of the detention facilities holding illegal aliens. What few in government and the media plan to focus on is what we are not seeing but that is still coming into our country, since Border Patrol has been transformed into Walmart greeters and babysitters. Moreover, what nobody in the media wants to discuss is the number of people who come in openly and go on to commit crimes in this country.
Despite so few agents left patrolling the line, Border Patrol still caught over 19,000 criminals at our border so far this fiscal year. These are just the ones they caught, and these are only the ones who are already convictedcriminals. Can you imagine how many new criminals are getting through, strategically brought in by the cartels with the certainty that Border Patrol can’t catch them because they are dealing with the bogus asylum? Can you imagine how many are first-timers who have no criminal record or known record that is communicated to our national security officials, but are still threats?
This is the issue the political class will not discuss. You never hear them discuss sex trafficking of kids, smuggling, cartels, drugs, gangs, and crime. You only hear narratives about conditions of the detention facilities. But none of these problems would occur if we actually held the line at the border and upheld both the letter and spirit of our laws and turned back illegal aliens or prosecuted them. Instead, Border Patrol is being told to rush these families in as quickly as possible, serving the interest of nobody. All of Border Patrol’s operational capacity is being diverted to cater to the Left’s demands rather than protect our national security, yet it still gets accused of running concentration camps.
