Obama File: Administration to Close Nine Border Patrol Stations


Is there no end to the transgressions against the Constitution and National Security and general irresponsibility in regards to this federal administration?
The Obama administration, after illegally enacting the Dream Act is now in the process of shutting down nine Border Patrolstations in four states – local law enforcement, members of Congress, and Border Patrol agents are livid.

Judson Berger, FoxNews(July 2012):
Critics of the move warn the closures will undercut efforts to intercept drug and human traffickers in well-traveled corridors north of the U.S.-Mexico border. Though the affected stations are scattered throughout northern and central Texas, and three other states, the coverage areas still see plenty of illegal immigrant activity — one soon-to-be-shuttered station in Amarillo, Texas, is right in the middle of the I-40 corridor; another in Riverside, Calif., is outside Los Angeles. U.S. Customs and Border Protection says it’s closing the stations in order to reassign agents to high-priority areas closer to the border.
These deactivations are consistent with the strategic goal of securing America’s borders, and our objective of increasing and sustaining the certainty of arrest of those trying to enter our country illegally,” CBP spokesman Bill Brooks said in a statement. “By redeploying and reallocating resources at or near the border, CBP will maximize the effectiveness of its enforcement mandate and align our investments with our mission.” 
Of course, mainstream bias media has not reported on this, despite breaking the news scene in July. FoxNews, and various blogs reported it. National Border Patrol Council (AFL-CIO) mentioned that the Office of Border Patrol (OBP) forwarded a recommendation to Congress to close nine Border Patrol stations and reviewing four other stations for closure as well. Most of the stations are in Texas, one in California, one in Montana, and one in Idaho. Stations on review: three in Texas and one in New Mexico.
Republican Rep. Mac Thornberryjoined two other Texas lawmakers to encourage the proposal be dropped. He was quoted by FoxNews and local Texas newspapers:
It’s part of the systematic dismantling of both border and interior enforcement,” Dane told FoxNews.com. “It complements the non-enforcement policy of this administration.” 
Obama has allowed 1.04 million illegal immigrants to apply for amnesty under the Dream Act, his Homeland Security has ignored federal law in enforcing immigration violations, and closing Border Patrol stations are part of a ridiculous policy. Before these occurrences there was “Fast and Furious” which released weapons into Mexico, caused the death of a Border Patrol agent and many Mexican citizens via the drug cartel organizations.
Is there no end to the insanity in this federal administration?
The stations are scheduled to be closed in six months, which means there will be stations farther apart and more difficult for law enforcement to do their job protecting citizens and patrolling the major illegal traffic corridors.
As FoxNewsreported:
Detractors, though, say the changes are part of a pattern. The administration recently announced it would stop deporting young illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children and have not committed a serious crime. And after the Supreme Court upheld one plank of Arizona’s controversial immigration enforcement law last month, federal officials said ICE would be selective in responding to calls about immigration status – prioritizing cases that meet certain criteria, like whether the suspect is wanted for a felony . . . The Department of Homeland Security hasn’t demonstrated that sending additional resources to the border will be a more efficient use of resources than maintaining a presence further north,” Neugebauer said. “I’d like to see numbers that reassure me that this strategy change won’t ultimately result in fewer arrests.”
 Yes, folks, there is big trouble in America … it starts with B, rhymes with C and stands for a corruption.
