One of the actual legitimate purposes of the federal government is for the protection of the United States border. They have epically failed to accomplish this task, and it appears this was done by design.
In this banana republic, border patrol officers who do their job will face the consequences.
Training materials obtained by The Associated Press instruct Customs and Border Protection agents “to immediately begin identifying persons in their custody, as well as newly encountered persons” who might be eligible to apply for protection from deportation under the executive order Obama issued last year.
Border agents are receiving threats from the Obama administration: Roll out the welcome mat for undocumented immigrants or else.
DRINKING and DRIVING and here ILLEGALLY, NO PROB (So is the prez, he doesn't even have a birth certificate.)
DHS ordered the 4,200 agents in the 262-mile stretch of the U.S.-Mexico border along Tucson, Arizona, to "release" people who are under the influence and "allow them to go on their way."
The Washington-based Judicial Watch said that the memo was obtained this week through "law-enforcement contacts" — and that it was dated earlier this month.
The new policy has outraged agents.
The Tucson Sector is one of the Homeland Security's busiest, in both arrests of illegal immigrants crossing into the United States and in drug seizures, according to the agency's most-recent annual report.
In fiscal 2014, Border Patrol agents arrested 87,915 people — a majority of whom were illegals coming from Mexico — and more than 19,000 arriving from other countries.
Some belonged to the ultra-violent international street gang MS-13, while many others were felons convicted of such serious crimes as homicide, rape and child molestation.

In addition, agents also seized 971,180 pounds of marijuana during the fiscal year, as well as large quantities of cocaine, heroin and methamphetamines, according to the site.
"'Politics over public safety' is the Obama’s administration’s approach to immigration enforcement," said Tom Fitton, Judicial Watch's president. "This directive will result in death and injuries to American citizens and other innocents.
According to Judicial Watch, the DHS memo does acknowledge that Border Patrol officers may not be comfortable following the directive, and poses this hypothetical question to address possible concerns: "If you allow this driver to continue down the road and they kill someone, aren’t you liable?"
The answer is no, the agency says: "There is no legal requirement for a Border Patrol agent to intervene in a state crime, including DUI," according to Judicial Watch.
"Therefore there is generally no liability that will attach to the agent or agency for failing to act in this situation," DHS says.
The new guidance was issued to officers in both Customs and Border Protection (which deals with enforcement at the border) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (which deals with enforcement at the interior), though the detailed presentation Breitbart posts online is the version shown to officers of CBP. It lays out a very careful set of instructions for agents to follow if they think that someone they've apprehended might qualify for deferred action under either the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA, which was introduced in 2012 but is being expanded in February) or the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans program (DAPA, which was created by the November 2014 memos) — or even if they don't qualify for deferred action, but aren't an "enforcement priority" either. The process includes taking the immigrant to a facility that processes biometric information, running a record check, and attempting to use whatever evidence is available to figure out whether or not the immigrant would qualify for one of the programs.
It's the equivalent of being pulled over by a police officer and asked for your license, and telling the officer, "I don't have a license, but I drive very well!" — and instead of impounding your car, the officer helps you get to the DMV.
There is a big difference between this round of policy changes and previous rounds in 2011 and 2012, though: this time, there's an actual line of accountability for agents. As one of the November 2014 memos indicated, when ICE wants to deport someone who isn't supposed to be a "deportation priority," it's expected that the head of the field office will sign off on it. That holds agents accountable to their supervisors — and it holds field-office directors accountable to higher-ups in Washington, if an attempt to deport a parent of US citizens turns into a publicity headache for the administration.
Border Patrol Agent, Hector Garza, tells CNN that the federal government, aka the Obama administration, is “aiding, abetting and facilitating the smuggling of illegal aliens across the border”.
On top of that, immigration laws need to be enforced and illegals need to be sent home. Failure to do this is a violation of the president’s oath of office, and he should be impeached for refusing to comply.
Obama VS. Border Agent Brian Terry
The unveiling of a new statue built to memorialize the murdered U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry on Saturday at the Homeland Security Department's Brian Terry Border Patrol Station in Bisbee, Arizona, received minimal news coverage by the nation's media. And no official from the Obama White house attended.
Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was shot to death in 2010. His killing occurred during gun battle between Border Patrol agents and members of a Mexican drug cartel who were attempting to hijack a marijuana shipment from another drug gang's smugglers. While investigators determined the gang's weapons were part of the Justice Department's poorly-run Operation Fast and Furious, the Obama White House and Attorney General Eric Holder began circling the wagons.
"From the moment it was discovered that Terry was murdered with a gun provided to the Mexican criminals by the Obama administration, the White House and Justice Department -- with the help of the news media -- began a campaign involving stonewalling and perjury," said a former lieutenant of detectives, Harris P. Colley. "Eric Holder was held in contempt of Congress for his lies and stonewalling" he added.
One police official noted that while President Obama made certain to appear with illegal aliens, promising them that he would punish any immigration enforcement agents or officers who did not follow his anti-deportation policy, he appeared to be indifferent to the deaths of law enforcement officers killed by illegal aliens or foreign gangs, said police officer Anna Colon.
De Funding DHS
Bitterly admitting defeat, the Republican-controlled Congress sent legislation to President Obama on Tuesday that funds the Department of Homeland Security without any of the immigration-related concessions that Republicans demanded for months.
“Sanity is prevailing,” said Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., a former chairman of the Homeland Security Committee, before the House voted 257-167 in favor of the $40 billion spending bill, which Obama was expected to sign promptly. All 182 Democrats present voted for the bill, while it received only 75 Republican “yes” votes.
The outcome averted a partial agency shutdown which would have begun Friday at midnight. It was a major victory for Obama and the Democrats, and a wholesale retreat for Republicans, who have spent months railing against an “unconstitutional overreach” by Obama in extending deportation stays and work permits to millions of immigrants in this country illegally.
In the end Republicans who’d tried to use the DHS spending bill to undo Obama’s actions had little to show but weeks of gridlock and chaotic spectacle on Capitol Hill in the wake of assuming full control of Congress in the November midterm elections. The turmoil brought the Homeland Security Department to within hours of a partial shutdown last Friday before Congress passed a one-week extension, and raised questions about Republicans’ ability to govern responsibly.
The fight was set up last fall, when Boehner and GOP leaders convinced House conservatives to wait until this year to try to overturn Obama on immigration, when the GOP would command control of the Senate and bigger majorities in the House.
Congress passed a full-year spending bill for the rest of the government, but kept the Homeland Security Department on a short leash to use its spending bill as the vehicle to oppose Obama.
“I believe this is a sad day for America,” said Rep. Matt Salmon, R-Ariz. “If we’re not going to fight now, when are we going to fight?”
