Border Patrol to Americans: "You Have Been Invaded"
by Jim Kouri, CPP
On May 1, the US Border Patrol Agents Local 2544 will be doing their part to offset any adverse impact on the American economy as a result of the upcoming illegal aliens' boycott. Local 2544, which represents Border Patrol agents in Arizona, vows to make big-ticket item purchases of computers and other expensive items on May 1.
"We wish all the illegal aliens would take their May 1 'protest' a step further, and completely remove themselves from the country," say Local officials.
"You have been invaded, America. There are reportedly 20 million illegal aliens in this country now, and the number could be much higher."
Border patrol agents state plainly that these people are not supposed to be here and nobody knows who they are.
"Our president, George W. Bush, is doing nothing more than winking at them and promising them a huge amnesty program," Local 2544 officials said.
Meanwhile, two border-state governors have recently declared their borders "disaster areas" because many of the people running the federal government sit on their hands, frozen in fear, and they refuse to address this problem in any meaningful way. 40% of the people still in Mexico say they want to come here.
"We try every day to stem this massive wave of illegal immigration, but we are overwhelmed, ill-equipped, underfunded, and sold out by politicians. We lost this battle years ago," officials said in a press release.
Border patrol agents have attempted to get their message out to the American people, but the monolithic news media ignore what they have to say about the illegal immigration issue.
"Thousands more illegal aliens make it into [the United States] every day. We simply cannot stop them. We don't even have a reliable two-way communications system in the border patrol. Many times, if an agent gets caught up in a bad situation in a remote area, he or she is on their own," claim members of Local 2544.
While the federal government and Washington lawmakers tell they American people that they are beefing up border security, the men and women on the frontlines know the sad truth: "There is no way to call for backup. It's inexcusable. Our vehicle fleet is falling apart, with many patrol vehicle in excess of 100,000 or 200,000 very hard miles. We are constantly told there is 'no funding' for new vehicles, so we continue to drive unreliable junk year after year after year."
Take it from the troops on the front lines America -- the borders of this country are completely out of control.
"Don't listen to the smooth-talking pinheads who tell you otherwise," said Local 2544 in their press release.
So what can you and I do about this dangerous situation? Well, let's heed the advice of the men and women on the frontlines of the border war:
"We need your help. What can you do? Call your congressmen and senators. Demand that they get our borders under control. Demand that they properly fund the border patrol so we can get the equipment and infrastructure we need to do our jobs. Demand that they give us the freedom to do our jobs (yes, even if it means offending someone). Demand that they back off the all-out assault on border patrol agents' workplace rights (they want to shut our union down and gain the authority to fire us for any reason without any meaningful third party scrutiny)."
And lastly, Border Patrol agents implore Americans to demand that political leaders in the House of Representative and the Senate not support any type of amnesty proposal to reward the lawbreakers already here.
"It will only encourage millions more to come. We had a massive amnesty program in 1986. It was supposed to stop illegal immigration once and for all. It was an unmitigated disaster and only made things worse. Smart countries don't repeat their mistakes."
