Check out this video, which really says it all about the lawless state of our border under Barack Obama.

It was filmed by trucker, Travis Pope, using iCam video glasses at a US Border Patrol checkpoint in Texas.

I wonder how long until this guy will be reassigned. It’s probably already done.

Follow up question: “Then why are you even here, blocking the highway?”

Border Patrol agent: How you doing, U.S. Border Patrol. How many people on board?

Travis Pope: Me.

BP agent: U.S. citizen?

Pope: Yeah, but does it really matter?

BP agent: Not anymore, unfortunately. Thank you.

I feel sorry for the border guard. He’ll probably either be disciplined or fired.

From the link:

In case you’re at work, here is the transcript of their brief “conversation”:

Border Patrol agent: How you doing, U.S. Border Patrol. How many people on board?

Travis Pope: Me.

BP agent: U.S. citizen?

Pope: Yeah, but does it really matter?

BP agent: Not anymore, unfortunately. Thank you.

No wonder morale is reportedly at an all-time low among our Customs and Border Patrol and ICE agents.

Kudos to that agent, he’s an honest man and hopefully he wasn’t fired.

I go through several checkpoints every week. Gonna try the same reply and see what reaction I get.

BTW the poor agent will be crucified for his honesty

Yes, on both points. Also,in the future, BP agents won’t likely be exchanging friendly banter with truckers. Everyone loses.

It’s a tragedy that this agent is probably a good guy who would like to see our laws enforced but who will fired in 10 seconds flat thanks to this video.

Probably should have blurred the guy out.

And that was an impeachable offense. That exchange, if not staged, would never have happened without the tacit approval of BHO.

When my brother drove a big rig I went with him sometimes. We went through one of those. They asked us simple questions and then asked who was in the back.

A dog.

Their sensors knew someone or something was back there in the sleeper.

All pointless technology now.

You do have to wonder why the border guards are there at all. When I was in Mexico the most watched cable channel was the one with cameras on the entrance gates to the US. A note above each gate told the average time and periodically an announcer would mention that they’d started checking cars at a gate and to go onto another gate to avoid delays.

From the horses mouth...

The ruling class in D.C. made American citizenship pointless.

And they have an army of people on the payroll going right along with it.

BTW folks, this goes the same for your sovereignty and independence and much more.

That checkpoint looks a lot like the checkpoint just east of Dateland AZ. I go through there 4 times a month. It’s set close to the off ramp to Spot Road on I-8.

That begs the question, since he stated the truth, what exactly is his job besides being on the payroll?

That wasn't filmed at the border. It's a secondary checkpoint 20 miles or so inside the USA.

That’s how it happens every time I come back from Del Rio. They sometimes have sniffer pups, but generally don’t ask for ID or anything.

No, because he would rather be in the field chasing drug and human smugglers.

Checkpoint duty is almost universally despised by the Agents. Some of the old Agents, those that can’t hack the field anymore after over 20-yrs, sometimes 30-yrs, in the desert chasing and fighting disease-ridden, violent gangs, cartels and coyotes, those old guys appreciate the relatively quiet checkpoint life. The young guys, not so much..

The young guys hate it but they do catch a lot of illegal drugs and human smugglers.

Of all the feds, the Border Patrol Agents are the ones truly on the line, ‘out there,’ far from backup as they try to interdict cartels and rip crews (those that steal from the cartels), as well as stop the mexican army from escorting the smugglers. My son was injured by three illegal drug smugglers one night, had a stand off with the mexican army another night and on another night, shot a drug smuggler that tried to kill him.

Some do the job for a “payroll and [to] get a pension,” but not many.

Like the outdoor life, like being on your own, like riding horses or ATVs, then become a BP Agent.
