Joe Biden hasn’t JUST been soft on keeping illegal aliens from walking across US-Mexico border, he’s been soft on the criminals too.
If there’s truth to the expression of ‘show me your checkbook and I’ll show you your priorities’, the Biden government LOVES the open border and HATES law enforcement.
This massive wave of illegal immigrants is not a bug, it’s a feature. We can argue all day long about WHY the Dems want it, but the fact that they do is not even a question
Making it harder for ICE to do its job, Congress voted last month to reduce the agency’s budget by $107 million ($1.96 billion less than the Trump administration requested).
Detention beds for the new fiscal year were cut from 45,274 to 34,000. The appropriation does not mandate a floor for detention beds, meaning that ICE is not required to detain a minimum number of people.
Lawmakers also blocked use of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services fees for ICE investigations, and rejected requests for more deportation officers. —ImmigrationReform
But that failure of border enforcement is creating the same growth surge in Mexico’s criminal cartels that Obama/Biden’s Iran policy and failure to enforce terrorism crackdowns (see: Project Cassandra) gave to Hezbollah.
The criminal cartels are ignoring our border with impunity.
Mexican drug cartels have conducted more than 9,000 drone flights into U.S. airspace in the last year to surveil American law enforcement and security operations in the southern border region, a senior Homeland Security official told Judicial Watch this week. The drones are observing federal, state, county, and city agencies near the Mexican border, including the U.S. Border Patrol, Texas Department of Public Safety, Texas National Guard, county sheriffs and local police. The Border Patrol, which operates under Customs and Border Protection (CBP), has captured about a dozen of the drones, and accessed the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles’ (UAVs) guidance and memory systems to gain intelligence information, according to a high-level official at the agency.
…Federal officials on the ground tell Judicial Watch that the cartels use the UAV surveillance flights to facilitate human smuggling and drug trafficking. Specifically, they help identify gaps in border coverage and assist the cartels in overwhelming certain areas to create a diversion for moving sensitive or high value loads through alternate border locations. The data analyzed from the confiscated drones has also provided U.S. authorities with other law-enforcement sensitive information that cannot be made public, government sources said, adding that drug cartels started using the devices a few years ago. Brandon Judd, the president of the union representing the nation’s 20,000 Border Patrol agents, told Judicial Watch the drones are also used to smuggle small amounts of drugs into the U.S. “They are dropping fentanyl,” Judd said this week. “They fly into certain locations, drop them to the ground and fentanyl is taken off of them and they take back off into Mexico.” The drones are not military grade, Judd confirmed, but rather “run of the mill” that can be purchased anywhere. —JudicialWatch
If you read it carefully, you will recognize that this confirms what has been said all along, that Criminal Cartels are using the diversion of large numbers of illegal aliens to keep law enforcement busy while they cross the border with products or people they don’t want law enforcement to intercept.
We’re told Biden’s people care deeply about the poor, struggling immigrants.
If so, why is this administration so careless with their lives?
US Customs and Border Protection has previously said a majority of migrant border deaths have been related to heat exposure. The agency recorded 557 southwest border deaths during fiscal year 2021. That’s up from 254 deaths in fiscal year 2020 and 300 deaths in 2019, marking a significant increase amid a 30-year record year for border crossings.
There were also 12,854 Border Patrol rescues this past fiscal year, far surpassing the previous four years, which is as far back as the agency has tracked this data. The previous high was in 2019, with 5,335 rescues. —CNN
For people drunk on power, ‘acceptable losses’ can take you down some dark paths.
Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.
Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.
This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
