While the Obama administration barricaded a World War II memorial in order to deny veterans access to its National Mall location in Washington D.C., illegal aliens and their supporters, including several Democrat lawmakers, were permitted to hold a rally demanding rights for illegal immigrants, according to an Examiner news story on Oct. 10, 2013.
The press, the elite political establishment and President Barack Obama and his administration are subjecting the American people to a steady and intense diet of political deception concerning Immigration reform, officials from the National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers said on Friday.
The group of retired law enforcement officers claim that the purpose of the Obama minions' deception is to convince U.S. citizens that illegal aliens are not a problem and that immigration laws are designed to provide a pathway to citizenship for aliens whose first act in the U.S. was violating the nation's laws.
"You have even been told that the border is safer than it has ever been. None of what the press, the political elite or the administration is telling you is true," said NAFBPO officials.
About one year ago, the Naco Border Patrol Station, in eastern Arizona, was renamed for Agent Brian Terry, who was murdered by weapons allegedly provided to drug cartels by the Obama administration. Since then, in Cochise County, Ariz., the law enforcement community and America lost Border Patrol Agent Nicholas Ivey and Sheriff Larry Dever.
"Within this time frame there was a Congressional Border tour sponsored by our group, NAFBPO. Field agents reported to the delegation that 30% of the Border was unpatrolled on a monthly basis and they estimated that they were apprehending less than 3% of what they knew was crossing the border illegally in the 70% of the border that they did patrol," said the retired border agents.
Prior to that operation, Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano and her subordinates would regularly claim that Border Patrol Tucson Sector was apprehending or turning back south 3 out of 4 illegal aliens that they knew crossed the border, according to NAFBPO.
However, when the newly purchased Vadar Radar system was used 24/7 for an extended period of time, 7533 illegal crossers were counted and 410 were apprehended, of which 52 or 35% were drug smugglers.
The actual metric was not 75% apprehended, but 5.4% apprehended. And the Homeland Security Secretary boasted about Vadar being 100% accurate, according to the former border officers.
"Since 2006, the annual percentage of illegal aliens apprehended that were reported in Tucson Sector has varied between 15-30% that al-ready have criminal records inside the United States. Charitably, that means that in the last 8 years approximately 4 million criminal aliens may have come into the United States illegally through Tucson Sector alone. The truth is that nobody knows," stated the organization's officials.
"These criminal aliens live among us and the first step in any meaningful Immigration reform is to identify, process and remove every single deportable alien in prison, in jail or on probation for the commission of a crime in the United States and this must take place before any other part of the Immigration reform situation is considered," they said.
