Sleep Tight America, Chuck Schumer says, "our borders are safer".

Chuck Schumer said that the number of people captured between Oct. 1, 2008 and May 15 this year was down 27 percent from the same period the previous year.

darylcagle-cartoonDemocratic Sen. Charles Schumer cited reports from the Customs and Border Protection officials saying that most of the decrease has been in the number of people taken into custody as they tried to illegally enter the U.S. along the border with Mexico.

The New York senator said the lower demand for labor in the U.S. and stepped-up border enforcement measures are behind the decrease.

"The border is far more secure than it's ever been," Schumer said.

The Obama administration has promised to increase border security even more on the southern border to crack down on border violence and work with Mexican authorities against drug cartels. Hundreds of federal agents, along with high-tech surveillance gear and drug-sniffing dogs, are being deployed to the Southwest.
<> Face Forward Comments:

I have to raise my hand on this on and call BS. I am pretty sure that this report is right up there with the reports that stated hundreds oops, no thousands of Mexican workers were going back across the border because of our poor economy and that 90% of the Mexican guns came from the US.

Note the phrase that Schumer uses, “take into custody”. If you tell the agents (ICE) that they cannot take people into custody and that you can no longer deport people found in raids......then sure the number drops. "The borders are far more secure than they have ever been",certainly he not making that statement based the false data he used, is he? As a hack for his party, you don't think he is trying to down play the illegal immigration problem so that amnesty will be pushed through, do you? Or perhaps he is still responding to all of the criticism the administration took for not closing the border from the swine flu outbreak. No matter his reason, it is political spin at its worst.

“Sky is blue” Nope. Don’t believe you.

The additional funds and agents being used are to stop drugs and guns from entering Mexico from the the US! Janet Napolitano's brilliant plan to keep us "safer".

"Sleep Tight America, Chuck Schumer says, "our borders are safer"."

That's no comfort. Schumer is such a notorious liar.

There are fewer undocumented immigrants crossing our borders (Shumer) and more assault weapons entering Mexico from America (Clinton)....
Consequently, we should pass comprehensive immigration reform and a new assault weapons ban.
It became quite and then the debate on FR quickly devolved into taglines*

While he is a loser, that elitist brick is probably reflecting on how great he thinks he is, imagining a statue being built in his likeness many years from now. He probably envisions the inscription...”Sen. Chuck Schumer New York. This great pioneer of a man help end the racist, unfair system called Capitalism and through his vision and determination ushered in the great age of Socialism...

Is it a game?

“Our borders are safer than,”

An atomic bomb set off in the middle of San Francisco?

“Our borders are safer than,”

Walking down K street at midnight wearing a thong and carrying a pound of hash?

“Our borders are safer than,”

Jumping off a 75 story building without a parachute?

Great game, Chuck.

So....

Wrecking our economy was the Obama administration’s answer to the illegal immigration problem?

No offense, but you are confusing ICE numbers and CBP Border Patrols numbers.

And yes, the border is more secure now then it ever has been. Is it anywhere near where it needs to be? No, but it is more secure then ever before!

Why are people discussing Schumer, distasteful subject that it is. I was feeling bloated and congested a few days ago and nearly had an arterial blowout trying to pass one. After a good dose of Maalox that Schumer came out just fine though it reeked to high heaven.

It’s still a problem - no matter how many times I flush that Schumer’s still there stinking up the place. Seems it doesn’t want to go down without taking my Second Amendment right with it despite my guns being too large to fit through there.
