Given more time to review this video I found a few issues identified below. But I believe this remains a valuable contribution, especially in warning that the border surge is a deception. What are we missing while we concentrate on "the children" most of whom are not children at all, but teenagers 15 and older; prime recruits for street gangs and/or gang members themselves.
The video interview posted here is worth watching in its entirety. Zach Taylor is a 27 year veteran Border Patrol agent with supervisory experience. He has testified before Congress as an expert witness on criminal activity in wilderness areas. His message is credible. He accuses the federal government in a coverup that is deliberately shielding critical information from the public.
UPDATE: There are a few questionable assertions in this video. For example, Taylor refers to FY 2015 starting in October 2015, and claims that Border Patrol agents will be issued no more ammunition until that time. FY 2015 begins in October 2014, not 2015. So, if he is referring to an ammunition shortage right now, it will end in a few months, not a year. He may be referring to multiple spring 2013 reports that claimed Border Patrol ammunition shortages and confused the dates. There dois not appear to be an ammunition shortage for Border agents now, however, serious restrictions have been placed on the agency's use of deadly force. Taylor was also in error regarding government restricting the supply of ammo to the public. I covered this issue exhaustively in last year's Police Militarization report.
Yet much of his narrative makes sense from a military intelligence perspective. Taylor says that whoever is perpetrating the border crisis is engaged in a perfect asymmetrical military tactic. While the American people focus on "the children," he points out that they are actually only a tiny proportion of the people crossing the border. That we are apprehending about 10 percent of the illegal border crossers, and most of the ones we do catch are not children. In fact, of the approximately 290 thousand apprehended so far this year, a little over 50 thousand (about 17 percent) are youths, and only half of these can honestly be called children. If it is true that 90 percent are not caught at all, that means we are focused on about 1 - 2 percent of the problem. The adults that we are missing, he says, are bringing in weapons, personnel and supplies while our attention is diverted by the needs of the children.
He says a very credible informer told him that that the most dangerous crime element in Mexico City is Russian Mafia. That means KGB. Few people know this, but the Soviets entered a secret pact with Mexico very early in the last century, almost certainly with the eventual aim of utilizing Mexico's strategic position in offenses against the U.S. There is little doubt in my mind that the border crisis is an endgame strategy. And Taylor asserts that Obama is in on the plan. He argues it is specifically designed to bring in the people and weapons that will kill us.
That may be. It is definitely true that the President provoked the border surge and hopes it will lead to future Democrat voters, disrupt GOP prospects for the November elections, and distract voters from his many other debilitating scandals. Obama is also aware of the vulnerabilities to enemy infiltration his border policies are creating, if he is not deliberately encouraging them. Meanwhile, administration supporters laughably brag the border is more secure than ever. For example, Obama claims the administration is deporting people in record numbers. Like practically every other claim it makes, this is false. According to an analysis by the Center for Immigration Studies, total deportations in 2011, the latest data available, were the lowest since 1973.
Examine his policies in any sphere. While our economy languishes at home, President Obama has turned the Middle East into an unstable cauldron of violence. Iraq has descended into bloodletting anarchy. Obama has actually contemplated partnering with Iran - which is partially responsible for the detabilization of Iraq and the murder of many American servicemembers - to counter ISIS forces. His administration is doing everything possible to hamstring Israel in dealing with the Hamas rocket offensive. Obama is no friend of America. Anyone who is the least bit reasonable should realize this by now.
The only way to defeat this border swamping strategy is for state governments to initiate independent action with assistance from American volunteers. The federal government is betraying our country and its representatives are betraying their oath to "support and defend" our Constitution and country "from all enemies foreign and domestic."
Time for governors to stand up, seal the border and begin deporting aliens on their own. Sovereign states have every right to protect their borders in any way they see fit. We need to get aggressive here. Otherwise Obama and his fellow communists will steal our country from us while we watch. And we are likely setting ourselves up for a terrorist attack. As Dick Cheney has warned, another attack is coming which will be far deadlier than 9-11.
