    Border patrol agent admits, "We have lost control of the border."

    I think most of us here know this, but it's still ugly when it is admitted on national television.

    A U.S. Border Patrol agent warned that our nation has “lost control of the border,” during an interview on Fox News Channel.

    During an interview with Fox News Channel’s Outnumbered, U.S. Border Patrol Agent Hector Garza, in his role as vice-president of the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC), told Harris Faulkner, “We’ve lost control of the border, as we are right now.” He continued saying we must come up with a new plan to correct the problems that led to the loss of control of the border.

    Have any of the border crisis deniers in high places actually talked to personnel on the scene?

    I've yet to hear from anyone that things are well under control there, denier or otherwise.

    To the left, the people swarming in aren't invaders, they're constituents. They want them here.

    We lost control of the border 40 years ago. Those who are old enough to remember during the Reagan administration he encouraged giving illegal amnesty with a pledge that the border would be tightened up. Well we all know how that turned out. Over the decades the will to tighten border control was thwarted by politicians looking for the Latino vote, the Catholic Church looking to replace its dwindling ranks, corporate America looking for cheap labor, farming America looking for seasonal peons. Now that grouping has a lot of political clout. Hence the Congress not Executive Branch did nothing.

    president Trumpmcomes into office and he extols how hard is going to be in enforcing the boarder. The Wall is promoted far and wide. The people trying to escape the conditions in their countries realize that have to try now before the Wall happens and before the administration improves border security to a point when it will be more difficult to enter legally or illegally. Do-good cities, organizations and people make it known that they will shelter illegals, so that have a hiding place once they get in.

    Is that starting to sound like the perfect storm? I think so.

    Our laws restrict us from deporting an illegal entrant if they appeal for asylum. We cannot deport the the same day they get caught because they are entitled a due process hearing. The backlog for hearings is four years. Those waiting are let free because we have no,place to put them. Then they disappear.

    Businesses still hire them because there is no meaningful penalty for doing so. A fine means nothing in light of how much money they save with cheap labor. The Church still encourages them to come because it needs supporters. And so on and so on.

    We are now a victim of a slow growing cancer that after forty years has grown so big we cannot ignore it, but we have no laws or systems to deal with it. It is a breakdown of government past, present, but hopefully not future.

    The boarder is fine.

    What's grown out of control is graft and corruption on either side of it. We've lost the ability to keep it hidden, even from the children. Heck, I've known that adults were corrupt since before I discovered Heinelin or Asimov or Herbert.

    One of them is a representative whose district is along the voter. But that doesn’t mean he actually thinks everything is ok. He’s just pandering to his voters. Everyone, including the deniers knows what’s going on. They also know they have established a voter base by taking the stance they have. The price of the flood of illegal immigrants is a small price to pay to lock in voters that will keep them in power.
