U.S. Border Protection Head: Central American Immigrants Not Dangerous
ABC News ^ | Sunday, July 6, 2014 | Jim Avila, Benjamin Bell and Mary Alice Parks

Posted on 07/06/2014 10:57:24 AM PDT by kristinn

The migrants from Central Americasurging across the border are “family members” and do not present a danger to the U.S., Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Gil Kerlikowske said today.

“These are family members, these are not gang members, these are not dangerous individuals,” Kerlikowske told ABC News’ Jim Avila in an exclusive interview, his first since the crisis began. “I think that we all need to work through this problem together as Americans.”

When asked if he had enough agents, Kerlikowske said he did.

“[Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson] has just deployed an additional 150 agents to the Rio Grande Valley, and that is on top of the 115 that are already moving in. So I am confident that we have the resources,” Kerlikowske said.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry disagrees and said on ABC’S “This Week” that the commissioner was wrong.

Open borders were practiced twice in history. First were the American Indians and it didn’t work out too well for them. Next Mexico allowed open immigration into TX and the Gringos took it away from them.

Hey, it ended badly twice before, let’s try it again!

“These are family members, these are not gang members, these are not dangerous individuals,”

Good grief...he doesn't get it. First, I kinda doubt that he has interviewed every illegal alien that has entered the country. Second, and more important, You're friggin' job is to secure our borders and I don't give a rats ass what your interpretation of their morals may or may not be. Do your job or replace yourself with somone who will!

How would they know? Is it even possible to do a background check on someone with dozens of fake identities?

They lied about border security and they lie when they deny causing this problem. Now they lie about deporting them.

So we’re supposed to believe them now, that these are all 8 year old cherubs? I don’t think so. They can KMA.

As an American, I’ve worked through the “problem”.

The “problem” is the Federal Government and the clueless Citizenry that Elects them.

He's just lying. He doesn't care if you think he "gets it" or not.

This is an uncontrolled wave of illegal immigration, and the fed is saying it’s not a problem. Well, there’s certainly a problem.

When they start voting, they’ll be dangerous.

Also, why doesn’t Gil the Border Patrol guy invite some illegals to stay at his house? Illegals with scabies, chicken pox, lice, etc. Go for it, Gil!

Only the illegal aliens with resistant communicable diseases are a threat, but the others aren’t. The problem is you’ve got to catch and process ALL of them first to know which ones have or carry diseases. This is the dirty little secret that no one wants to talk about.

The U.S. was generous in giving American citizenship to the Mexicans who remained in the territory we took over in the 1800s. Mexico, I don’t think, would be that generous if they took over our areas.

According to Mexico laws LEGAL immigrants have loads of restrictions on them, for one they may not own property on water; ever. Their kids will not automatically be citizens. Lots more. Plus if you are caught there illegally you will be in a mex prison for 2 yrs; a death sentence for a gringo.
