The association that represents former Border Patrol officers, angered that President Obama and Congress have ignored immigration laws for years, has called on Washington to use the Pentagon to ship all illegal immigrants flooding over the border, including unaccompanied children, home.
“There is only one solution that will turn the tide toward safeguarding America. That solution is a total effort by the United States active duty military to ensure that every single one of these law breakers are returned to their country of origin,” said National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers Chairman Zack Taylor.
“There is no other solution that will benefit America. The onslaught on our nation must not only cease, the incentives to violate our borders must be totally removed. There must be consequences to the lawbreakers. Anything less is a stalling tactic and will encourage more illegal immigration,” he added in a statement provided to Secrets.
The group blamed the president for essentially inviting the illegal immigrants into the United States to stay by ignoring immigration laws.
“This is not a humanitarian crisis, this is a manufactured crisis. Any media outlet that calls this a humanitarian crisis is concealing what is actually happening. This is the result of American leaders taking America into a lawless state over time and this latest invasion by opportunistic law breakers is a direct result of their actions. Period,” said Taylor.
His group also said that efforts to use the National Guard to shore up the U.S.-Mexico border are cosmetic. “It is designed to deflect your attention away from the results of their gross malfeasance in office. Any politician suggesting such a token gesture now does so knowing that the real experts in the field of Illegal Immigration strongly have warned against that move.”
Taylor concluded: “This is not just another of the administration’s manufactured crises, this time the Republic hangs in the balance.”Paul Bedard, the Washington Examiner's "Washington Secrets" columnist, can be contacted at email@example.com.
