“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.
