This past weekend I did what President Obama refused to do during his recent trip to TexasI visited the U.S-Mexico border.
I knew that the border crisis was serious, but nothing could have prepared me for just how bad this situation truly is.
The results of the Obama administrations lawlessness when it comes to enforcing existing immigration laws were magnified in the Rio Grande Valley, where Congressman Steve King and I visited a number of facilities and met with local, state, and federal officials.
What we saw was people processing, not border security.
Americans would be shocked to learn that virtually no one is stopped before gaining entrance. When a foreign national illegally enters the United States, they are taken to a processing facility, where it is determined whether or not they get to stay in the country.

My heart breaks for the unaccompanied children, but officials told us that 80 percent of the people entering the country illegally are not women and childrenthey are males over the age of 14.
It is this latter group that is the source of much of the incoming violence, particularly with their increasing involvement in drug cartels and transnational gangs such as MS-13. These organizations profit from exploiting innocent people desperate for a better life into paying thousands of dollars to be transported into the United States.
MS-13 is a brutal international gang with more than 50,000 memberswith thousands of members throughout the United States. This ugly and dangerous business has fueled violence on both sides of the border.
By failing to secure our border, the United States government has enabled and empowered a criminal enterprise made of drug cartels and human traffickers that spans our continent.
One way to fight this is to expose it via videos. A picture or video is worth a thousand words.
This is what stood out to me.
How many people here are shocked by what is going on down there? Anybody?
“Americans would be shocked to learn that virtually no one is stopped before gaining entrance”
Of course the militia tactic of pointing a gun at them and telling them to turn around or they will be shot is out of the question I guess. :-)
Look at who Obama is refusing to let in.
And yet the media keeps up its propaganda campaign to brainwash as many Americans as possible into thinking this illegal activity of this administration is acceptable.
No wonder the media railroaded Michele so quickly and so viciously.
What is so remarkable is how few Republicans in Congress are using their public visibility to speak out against these crimes by our government against the people of America and the Constitution they are duty-bound to uphold.
Not shocked. Just horrified.
How can anyone argue with that? They can’t, they can only fulminate.
Our Border Patrol has been perverted by the Obamanites into a combination `Welcome-Bienvenidos wagon/Maria Poppins nanny.
The key word here, as always, is “lawless”.
Good cartoon but the typical border environment does not include a barbed wire fence. It is just wide open and they walk across and then are “processed”
No darker skinned individuals. Others, yes.
unfortunately no such fence exists.
Should show a stand of Glenn Beck and his free soccer balls.
So instead of a Border Patrol we have a People Processing Patrol —
Like “crossing guards”.
Haven’t seen an overtly criminal adminstration in a Western nation like this ever.
A lot of criminal administrations, all of them really. But it was always kept on the “down low”.
Now, apparently the government can publicly declare they will be breaking the government’s own laws.
