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 ABCS This Week that the commissioner was wrong.

Then, Liberals and open-border RINOs need to be lining up to take there people into their homes. Problem solved.
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!
No problem now the Gov’t says it okay and their not dangerous. You can also $hit in one hand and wish in the other and see which one fills the fastest.
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!
and I have a bridge I would like to sell you....
How would they know? Is it even possible to do a background check on someone with dozens of fake identities?
He’s talking trash.
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.
Then let them move in with you gil!
As an American, I’ve worked through the “problem”.
The “problem” is the Federal Government and the clueless Citizenry that Elects them.
They’ll just suck up $$$$$$$$$ by the BILLIONS.
Good, they can stay with you and your family.
He's just lying. He doesn't care if you think he "gets it" or not.
Yeah, MS 13 is a great pro family organization.
The ones coming from the Middle East are dangerous.
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!
Even if they are not dangerous they are ILLEGAL and UNWANTED!!
Sure MS 13 family members are totally harmless.
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.
Puppies are awesome. 10 million puppies?
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.
Neither are the Gitmo 5, according to Lord 0.
