Skip to comments.Closure of Border Patrol stations across four states triggers alarm
Posted on 07/10/2012 1:33:32 PM PDT by Doogle
The Obama administration is moving to shut down nine Border Patrol stations across four states, triggering a backlash from local law enforcement, members of Congress and Border Patrol agents themselves.
Critics of the move warn the closures will undercut efforts to intercept drug and human traffickers in well-traveled corridors north of the U.S.-Mexico border. Though the affected stations are scattered throughout northern and central Texas, and three other states, the coverage areas still see plenty of illegal immigrant activity -- one soon-to-be-shuttered station in Amarillo, Texas, is right in the middle of the I-40 corridor; another in Riverside, Calif., is outside Los Angeles.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection says it's closing the stations in order to reassign agents to high-priority areas closer to the border.

To win re-election, Obama has to have a lot more illegals come across the border that he can then register to vote as Democrats.
Hispandered enuff yet?
Right on schedule.
No need for BP in Texas. The border is safe, there. Obama will soon show statistics proving this.
This will happen after the Sinaloa Cartel have finished moving into Arizona and the new FBI agents have set up monitoring and collection points in cooperation with the cartel, so that funds flow to Obama and Calderon. Southern Arizona is the New Tijuana.
Why does the Manchurian candidate not shut down NORAD while he is at it?
We may never know how many deals he has done with China and Russia to allow their operatives to sneak over an unprotected border.
We may never know how many drugs he needs.
We may never know how many muslims he wants to let into the country illegally.
The”FU’s” from Obama to the American people keep getting bigger and louder.
I guess Obama wants as many illegals in America as possible. Part of his “transformation”?
When will Mitt Romney go on the air and say “Oh my (Mormon) God! This is utterly crazy!”
Obama is just setting us up for another 9/11.
Don’t tell me this magic negro isn’t anti American
Starting to look to me like this isn’t just trying to get more illegal alien democRat votes.
Looks to me like he’s trying to overwhelm and destroy the American culture by flooding it with immigrants.
Why you never vote for a candidate that is not 100% secure borders and 100% deportation of all illegals
Consider becoming a monthly donor.
It's easy, and with enough participants
we could eliminate FReepathons.
The little faggot hates Americans.
And that applies to double talking pro-amnesty Republicans as well. Please don’t call me *heartless* and please no sob stories about illegal alien grandfathers who have been here for 25 years.
One Brian Terry isn’t enough.

So Obama opens the border, takes away our guns and raises our taxes - just this month. Nice.
We should also change the rules of engagement: an alien crossing with any sort of weapon is an invader, and gets shot on sight. An alien throwing a rock is using a weapon, and gets shot on sight. An alien transporting drugs is engaging in chemical warfare and gets shot on the spot.
Step One: Stop enforcing immigration laws.
Step Two: Sue the states when they try to enforce them themselves.
Step Three: Shut down the Border Patrol.
Step Four: Get re-elected.
Step Five: ?????????
Iguess if you want to get the OTMs in so they can do acts of terror this is the way to do it
Reduce interceptions and increase the numbers of successful illegal crossings?
That's the Obama Plan alright!
i hope gets stomach cancer...
Heck, you could just slow down border crossings by saying that anyone trying to enter must go through what Americans do every time they get on a plane and refuse the naked body scanner.
We should take some of the TSA agents who seem to have too much time on their hands, and assign them to border patrol.
Perfect match in the Soros administration; the TSA will be frisking 99-year-olds in wheel chairs and letting all of the illegals pass through without questions.
Step Five: Open the re-education camps for the likes of us.
W are going to have to do it ourselves.....
it’s coming to that...
Fram a statement of Steve Hogan, father of recently buried marine Hunter Hogan.
Heres the statistics in Afghanistan for the 8 years of George Bush. The total killed in action under him is 660. Barack Obama in 3 years and 5 months the total killed in action is a total of 1,398.
Wounded under George Bush is 2,637 in 8 years. Wounded under Obama up to January 31st of this year is 11,529
Obambie gots ta gets dem Meckseycans in here to vote in time fo’ de ‘lecshun.
Si se puedo, I theeeenk...
The BP Station/Check Point on I-15 just south of Temecula, CA has for all practical reasons been closed for a couple of years. You drive through it at 70mph.
The Marines have real rounds, but can't shoot them. The BP Agents can shoot, but have bean bag rounds. Agent Terry was firing bean bag rounds when he was murdered.
No November election. Martial law because of some engineered event. Executive order already signed giving INTERPOL jurisdiction over US law enforcement. Small arms treaty about to be signed by Hilary giving Nato the right to disarm Americans. Prison camps, with foreign Nato troops already trained. I keep going over this and it keeps adding up to a horrible nightmare.
Just in case; Southern Brothers. Lock and Load.
No State shall, without the Consent of Congress... engage in War, UNLESS actually invaded, or in such imminent Danger as will not admit of delay.

The answer is Interstate 40, smugglers/coyotes use I 40 to distribute illegals (and drugs of course) throughout the country. Main function of Border Patrol in Amarillo is when vehicle loads of illegals are caught on the interstate they can be turned over to BP for processing. If the Amarillo station is closed when LEO get a group of illegals they will have to wait for BP to come from elsewhere. Of course what will likely happen is BP won't be able to come from elsewhere so illegals will have to be released. This is part of the Obama amnesty plan.
And then the 'resident can declare a national emergency and by using the appropriate Executive Orders, rule as an outright dictator.
Good way to get votes there, Super Occupier.
Pretty much. He is always looking for a crisis to use.....
