Number of Illegals Caught in Texas Spikes With Many Expecting Immediate Release by ICE

It sure didn't take long for word of the outrageous release of nearly 3,000 criminal illegal aliens by ICE over the past few weeks to trickle back to Mexico.

The number of illegals apprehended by Border Patrol agents in the Rio Grande Valley in February was up nearly 70% from the month before. And hundreds of them were even turning themselves in, expecting that ICE just simply let them go too!

These are people that are just voluntarily turning themselves in to our agents with the expectation they’ll be released,” said Border Patrol Agent Paul Perez, president of the Rio Grande Valley union of the National Border Patrol Council. “When you cross with the expectation that you’ll be released, there’s no need to hide, there’s no need to run. You just look for a uniformed agent and turn yourself in.”
All in all, the number are staggering.  In December, agents at the McAllen Station alone arrested 2,758 people, according to data released by Customs and Border Protection. The number held steady during January, when agents arrested 2,815 people.

In February, though — the month ICE began releasing illegal immigrants to save money — agents arrested 4,777 people -  a nearly 70% increase over the prior month. This spike coincided with the thousands of illegals released from ICE facilities by DHS - with the cover story that the release was to to "looming sequester cuts". Of course we know now that the detainees were released starting in the first week of February, a full month before sequestration was even scheduled to take effect.

Illegal aliens got the message - and fast. And now they are streaming across the border at levels not seen in years. This is the the result of Obama's myriad amnesty decrees.

In the Rio Grande Valley Sector, agents typically work 10-hour shifts. To "save money", they will start working eight-hour shifts starting next month, a source said.

Additionally, 60,000 Border Patrol agents will face 14 furlough days — essentially unpaid vacation. Overtime would drop severely. At the very time that border crossing have nearly doubled, Obama is thinning out our border security to the bone.

The coyotes and those folks listen to what’s happening here,” said U.S. Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-Laredo. “They’re probably getting the impression, ‘Hey, there are going to be less people working. There will be less security.’”
And there is absolutely no reason for it. DHS and the White House claim the cuts will occur because of "sequestraion". But this is a bald faced lie.

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) budget projects that at the end of fiscal year 2013, DHS will carry forward more than $9 billion in "unobligated balances" - unspent money!

So our border less secure, criminal aliens set loose onto our streets, the American people put at greater risk. And all because of a outright lie to score political points, despite the DHS having billions in surplus funds available.

How is this not treason?

Gee, and you don’t think there would be a human flood in response to amnesty? Right, I’ve got this bridge...

I guess the Border Patrol can just take the rest of the year off, why bother. I have often said that being a member of the Border Patrol has to be the most frustrating job in the world.

....when will someone ask, DO YOU WANT TO BECOME A CITIZEN?

All amnesty means is work without paying taxes, take advantage of ANY AND ALL social services you can, send money back home and scream racist if someone ask.......

Ironic, in a way. Mexicans in Mexico are more informed on what Obama’s doing than the average low-information voter. I guess that’s why we call ‘em low-information voters.

Marco “The Rube” is an idiot on Immigration, just walk a mile at night along the Border to adjust to the brutal reality there.

Not after the US Border became a killing zone 10 + years ago.

The total border is 2000 miles long with 1200 miles in TEXAS.

Thus, the Border will NEVER be secured.

To protect our Nation we must make enforcement of existing laws mandatory, revoke the Emergency Room Federal Law, use sameday deportation to outdoor prison camps for processing prior to nearest Mexican/USA Border, and otherwise make the USA VERY hostile to those who break our border laws.

“Number of illegals caught in Texas Spikes....”

Darn. I thought it was an article about a new invention those Texans had invented to prevent border crossings.

They're doing the research (most) Americans won't do.
