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.

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.....
