Border agent says Department of Homeland Security is manipulating stats to make the border look more secure

A federal border agent said Tuesday that the Department of Homeland Security is manipulating border statistics to make it appear as if the border is secure, but said in reality that the border is not secure, and that border agents fail to capture as many as two-thirds of all illegal aliens who try to cross into the United States.

“I want to be crystal clear – the border is not secure,” said border agent Chris Cabrera in prepared testimony before the Senate Homeland Security Committee on Tuesday. Cabrera was also speaking on behalf of the National Border Patrol Council.

“That is not just my opinion or the position of the NBPC,” he said. “Ask any line agent in the field and he or she will tell you that at best we apprehend 35 to 40 percent of the illegal immigrants attempting to cross. This number is even lower for drug smugglers who are much more adept at eluding capture.”

Cabrera said he understands that DHS tells Congress all the time that the border is secure, and that DHS stats show that the department is successful in apprehending illegal border crossers 75 percent of the time. But he said those numbers relect an ongoing effort to “manipulate the statistics,” and he gave a few examples.

First, he noted that years ago, if 20 sets of footprints were found, border agents would start looking for 20 illegal immigrants. But he said today, those numbers are being fudged.

The whole government is corrupt and we are being lied to about everything. There is a shadow government running our country. I believe the czars of all the various departments hold the power. We have more muslims, Latinos, and third world people here than ever before. It's about erasing the Anglo Saxon culture from America. That's just my opinion.

Odessa, I think you are spot on here, I agree!!!!!

Odessa, Bob. Your post is the truth! Bob? You agree! Now what? Ready to WALK THE WALK ? The first part you have done! Head for the nearest border to you! North or South!  Makes no difference! Not much talk about the North. But they are coming in from there also!  Come on men ! It's your country! The Keyboard is not going to win this !

It has been proven that the government was  behind the migration of tens of thousands of children from as far away as Honduras and Costa Rica...  we expect the government to apprehend illegals at the border... when they are directly  engaged in bringing them to America.

The word here is invasion.  The invaders are being aided and abeted by our oun government leaders, starting with the "President" currently infesting our White House.

and then just how hard is it to realize just what you say to everyone to get it? I wonder just how much the Americans think they are soooo safe from those in the WH and other depts.? How much more do the Americans need to have to understand the realize the very Threat is right now in the WH as a Domestic Enemy?

The government is fudging numbers again to make themselves look good. This is news?

We now have large numbers of enemies both FOREIGN and DOMESTIC.

no kidding, Sherlock!!!!  they have been doing that for years, including under Clinton and bushs 41 and 43

Is there a rule or law that states when Obama talks or orders  all must follow.  Please ordering agencies to not do their work is illegal. Or should be.  This is just unreal to think that people obey his every command.  Applause for the people coming out and telling the truth.

Sharon... You make a critical observation... the US CIVIL SERVICE has become agents of lawlessness.  The President can do nothing without the CIVIL SERVICE complying with his orders.  What we have are a bunch of Lois Lerner's (corrupt civil servants) working at good paying government jobs... that need to be FIRED as quickly as we can manage to get a President who is not corrupt into office.

I suggested on several web cites that Congress pass a Resolution reminding all Civil Servants that they serve the People and the LAW FIRST... not the President or his political hacks.  If they are asked to violate the law ... too include looking the other way when criminal conduct occurs... they are to decline respectfully and refer the President or his agents to the law. 

If a government employee chooses to comply with Illegal Executive Orders or memoranda/directives, they can expect to be prosecuted... Prosecuted to the fullest extent under the law, just as soon as the US Attorney's office and DOJ are staffed with law abiding individuals.  The Civil Servant needs to be warned, in no uncertain terms, that judgment day is approaching and if they like their jobs and want to remain free, to come and go at will, they had better obey the law and not unlawful executive orders. 

Our Civil Servants are rapidly morphing into the second coming of Nazi Germany... following illegal orders was no excuse for the Nazi and certainly should be no excuse for the US Civil Service should they choose to violate the law by following unlawful orders from this Administration.. or from any superior who would have them violate the laws of the United States.  I would remind them that 'knowing' a felony is being committed and not reporting it... is a crime in and of itself.  

There are a lot of people within the national government who should be in a Federal Prison. Instead we have handed them the keys to the country and they are destroying it.  If this country is to be saved, the We the People must do it......there is no one else!





Obama Lies Again: – Ignores That The Year After Signing The Stimulus More Than (4) Million Jobs Were Lost

Former President Obama, the only President in US history who had his FBI and other Intel agencies spy on the opposition party candidate, claims that he created the great economy that Americans are enjoying today. The only thing Obama created was debt and massive job losses with his horrible economic recovery.

Yesterday the former President tweeted an effort to take credit for President Trump’s successful economy:

Joe Hoft@joehoft

Of course another @BarackObama lie. He can’t open his mouth without lying. 11 years ago the US lost (4.3) million jobs over the next 12 months. Horrible liar. 

Barack Obama  @BarackObama

Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history.

President Obama’s policies were a disgrace and a failure. He doubled the national debt in spite of zero interest rates from the Fed. His recovery was the worst in US history.

Also, Obama’s assertion is just plain false. The ‘Stimulus’ was passed in February 2009 right after Obama took over the Presidency. He promised to not pass any bills for at least a week to allow for the bills to be read by the people but lied as soon as he was sworn in. The Stimulus was hundreds and hundreds of pages of government handouts to Democrat districts and it was close to $1 million. This was not what America needed and it led to the Tea Party.

Far-left Wikipedia has this to say about the Stimulus:

Note that in his infinite wisdom, NYT economist Paul Krugman is credited with arguing that “the stimulus was far smaller than the economic crisis warranted”. (He also said the markets would crash and burn if President Trump was elected President.)

The data shows that the 12 months after Obama’s stimulus, the US lost 4.3 million jobs:

In Obama’s first three years he netted a loss of 1.5 million jobs compared to President Trump who has added more than 6.7 million jobs.

When it comes to the economy, the billionaire schools the community organizer every time.
