Border agent: 8 in 10 illegals released into US after capture

Someone tell me why we even bother with recognizable borders when illegal aliens can cross it with impunity and disappear?

The president of the National Border Patrol Council, Local 2455 says that his agents are hampered by a lack of resources and that executive orders and “prosecutorial discretion” forces the agency to release 8 of 10 illegals they catch coming over the border and release them on to US territory.

    WTF! There is NO reason to let them go this side of the border. If they don’t have a valid US passport back they go. What the hell is so hard to understand about that?

    • Slickfoot

      Of course there’s a reason… If they get released on the south side of the border it makes so much harder for them to vote democrat this November

    Now they can even get a driver’s license in many states and also be handed a “motor voter” registration form in Spanish.
    If illegal voter fraud wasn’t already swinging elections, then the Dems wouldn’t be fighting it so damn hard.

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      I’m curious too.
      Any Canadians with some free-time on their hands want to give it a shot?

    Invaders should be shot.

    I ask my Mexican char if I can do the illegal thing in Mexico.
    Like if enough Canucks just waltz in and demand stuff…..she’s speechless….

  • Slickfoot

    If 8 out of 10 get released just for saying obama invited me… What’s the deal with the other 2?

      They had the personnel office phone number of the Trump Organisation.
