    Obama Is His Own Worst Enemy. Unbelievable.



    (CNSNews.com) - Even though the Border Patrol now reports that almost 1,300 miles of the U.S.-Mexico border is not under effective control, and the Department of Justice says that vast stretches of the border are “easily breached,” and the Government Accountability Office has revealed that three persons “linked to terrorism” and 530 aliens from “special interest countries” were intercepted at Border Patrol checkpoints last year, the administration is nonetheless now planning to decrease the number of Border Patrol agents deployed on the U.S.-Mexico border.

    Border Patrol Director of Media Relations Lloyd Easterling confirmed this week--as I first reported in my column yesterday--that his agency is planning for a net decrease of 384 agents on the U.S.-Mexico border in fiscal 2010, which begins on October 1.

    A Department of Homeland Security annual performance review updated by the Obama administration on May 7 said the Border Patrol “plans to move several hundred Agents from the Southwest Border to the Northern Border to meet the FY 2010 staffing requirements, with only a small increase in new agents for the Southwest Border in the same year.”

    Easterling said on Tuesday that in fiscal 2009, 17,399 Border Patrol agents have been deployed on the U.S.-Mexico border. In fiscal year 2010, the Border Patrol plans to decrease that by 384 agents, leaving 17,015 deployed along the Mexican frontier. At the same time, the number of Border Patrol agents deployed on the U.S.-Canada border will be increased by 414, from a fiscal 2009 total of 1,798 agents to a fiscal 2010 total of 2,212.

    The Border Patrol is responsible for securing a total of 8,607 miles of border, including the U.S.-Mexico border, the U.S.-Canada border from Washington state to Maine, and sectors of coastline in the Gulf of Mexico, Florida, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

    Each year, the Border Patrol sets a goal for “border miles under effective control (including certain coastal sectors).” “Effective control,” as defined by U.S. Customs and Border Protection, means that when the Border Patrol detects an illegal border crosser in a particular area of the border the agency can be expected to succeed in apprehending that person.

    Why doesn't the US just annex Mexico and be done with it. They are all going to end up over here anyway. They are like cockroaches... Bring one into the house by accident and then you just can't get rid of the fucking things.

    Well it's not like the FBI has uncovered any terrorist plots or anything recently. What could possibly be the harm in decreasing security? Obama's lack of experience is a wonder to behold.

    It's like Obama wants to destabilize The US and put Us more at risk. It's like He wants Us to get Hit.

    Canadian / US border: 5,525 miles, 2212 agents, or 1 agent for every ~2 1/2 miles of border.

    Mexican / US border: 1,969 miles, 17105 agents, or 1 agent for every ~0.12 mile of border.

    Hmmm. If I were a terrorist wanting to enter this country, which border would I attempt to cross?

    Decisions, decisions....

    I have only a few comments on this one, the Govt. will cut these agents up and until a person or person(s) that have entered into this country illegally have committed an act of terrorism causing the deaths of even more Americans. I find it amazing that some of the 9-11 terrorists came across the Canadian border legally and we all know the results of lax attitudes and looking the other way when it comes to that right? Well here we are just making it easier is all, well that is until it makes the evening new(s) and the Administration announces they will increase border protection as a result of the terrorist action in (fill in the blank ). To all those future families who will have to endure the suffering that many many American families have had to go through as a result of our lax vigilance and trading safety for political points you have have my deepest sympathies and hopes that this issue will be corrected before you have to suffer that fate.
