who needs enemies?

(My emphasis):

“I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again,” Carlos X. Carrillo, Border Patrol chief of Laredo, Texas, told guests at a town-hall meeting Thursday.

The Border Patrol’s job is not to stop illegal immigrants. The Border Patrol’s job is not to stop narcotics. … The Border Patrol’s mission is not to stop criminals.

“The Border Patrol’s mission is to stop terrorists and terrorist weapons from entering the country.”

So, not surprisingly:

Law-enforcement agencies consider Laredo to be one of the Southwest’s most dangerous border crossings. It is the sister city of Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, which is controlled by one of that country’s most ruthless drug-smuggling rings.

And, taking his lead from Brit Muslim preachers of terror and their cop supporters, the boss weighs in (my emphasis):

David Aguilar, head of the Border Patrol, defended Mr. Carrillo and said his comments were taken out of context.

“Our mission is to protect our country’s borders from all threats,” Mr. Aguilar said. “Our highest priority is keeping terrorists and terrorist weapons from entering our country.

“We have never, nor will we ever, decrease or minimize our aggressive efforts in enforcing the rule of law.”

If the administration doesn’t fire both of these creeps, we’ll know it really, really wants open borders.

    “Carlos X. Carillo” – huh! Bet he was in favor of amnesty too.

    This clown is even more lefty that Wiki, which says “the CBP protects the Borders of the United States from . . . illegal migration”

    The border patrol was established early the last century – so we paid them to do absolutely *nothing* for all those decades? Not a whole lot of muslims trying to kill us back in the 1920’s so they were apparently formed as a solution to a problem that didn’t exist (yet).

    What a moron. With people like this clown and Chertoff in high ranking positions, it’s no wonder that we have had a rise in crimes within the US from illegal immigrants. What’s even worse is that these people (illegals) flaunt their impunity from the law right under the noses of US citizens. Never before has this happened in our nation’s history (VDH briefly discusses this at Pajama Media this week). Serious steps need to be taken to correct this problem-if it can even be corrected at all at this point (e.g., denying sanctuary cities federal funds; cracking down on businesses that hire illegals; changing state directives regarding education and the MUST DO of paying for and educating illegals, etc).

    I am all for the removal of US troops from S Korea and redeploying them on the southern borders…but I don’t think that is going to happen anytime soon.

    From http://www.usborderpatrol.com/Border_Patrol92cg.htm (a BP support site, not official):

    It is unfortunate that Mexican citizens legally and illegally in the United States today are responsible for as many deaths and as much total property damage in our country on a daily basis as Pancho Villa’s raid on the town of Columbus in 1916.

    The total deaths within the United States due to illegal aliens alone exceeds 4,000 per year. Yes, that is more than died on 9/11 and more than have died in combat in Afghanistan and Iraq to-date combined.

    Yes, today and yes, every single day. And the reaction in 1916 to this invasion was a half million men under arms sent to protect the border[*]. Today we have less than 8,000 on the line and the magnitude of the crime is ignored.

    *And I bet they were actually allowed to shoot.

    http://www.usborderpatrol.com/Border_Patrol90h.htm:

    The tens of millions of illegal aliens inside the US murder about 12 people each day in the United States.

    Let’s put that into perspective:

    Illegal aliens murder more people inside the USA every year than were killed in the attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941.

    Illegal aliens murder more people inside the USA every year than were killed on 9/11.

    Illegal aliens murder 25 times more people inside the USA every year than were killed in the Oklahoma City bombing.

    Since 9/11.. Illegal aliens have murdered more people inside the USA than were killed in all of our Indian Wars starting from 1776.

    [More]

    The murder of fewer than 20 Americans at Columbus caused President Woodrow Wilson to call out the entire U.S. Army and the entire National Guard. To put that in perspective, President Wilson put more National Guardsmen along the US / Mexico border than we have troops of every type in Iraq today. He then backed them up with the entire U.S. Army.

    Is the USBC site official?

    If so, it’s completely undercuts the nutters currently running that organization.

    And, incidentally, if said nutters are following orders, it also completely undercuts the the president’s rationale for beefing up the USBC.

    That’s a great suggestion!

    South Koreans would be happy (for about 1 week), and the people in the border states ecstatic – the US citizens, that is.

    I just spotted – it’s run by supporters of the USBC.

    Neat!
