The National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers (NAFBPO) issued a press release Monday calling on Republican leaders from the House of Representatives to abandon any efforts to provide amnesty to America’s at least 11 million illegal immigrants and focus instead of enforcing the nation’s laws.
“The first priority of Congress must be to protect the American people and to resist falling prey to the present lavish pressures of the influence peddlers,” NAFBPO wrote in its release.
To this end, the NAFBPO urges the American public to directly request Congressmen John Boehner, Eric Cantor and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) to abandon their dreams of amnesty, by whatever name, and get on a realistic track to ensure national security and public safety. That track leads to effective interior enforcement in every jurisdiction in all fifty states. Only then can actual border security and control become possible.
The group said in its release that it wants the American people to realize that many illegal immigrants are criminals with nefarious intentions, despite the conventional wisdom in the mainstream media and in Congress.
“[The NAFBPO] wishes to draw America’s attention to the fact that the massive alien population illegally present in the United States, often typified as benign huddled masses yearning to breathe free, is simply not as so often characterized,” the group wrote.
Based on past arrest figures, there is a significant percentage living among us with criminal records, many violent, Moreover, organized illegal drug and human trafficking over our porous borders has established transnational criminal operations in over 2,000 American cities. It is certainly reasonable to presume that potential terrorists are also part of this shadow population. Presently, there is no way to know. They live among us.
The group points to a recent report out of Austin, Texas, on more than a dozen illegal immigrants raping a 13-year-old girl. “As an example of the product of our lack of border security, as well as the tolerance of sanctuary cities, is the recent gang rape of a 13-year-old girl by illegal aliens in Austin, Texas,” NAFBPO wrote. “This is not an isolated incident, just one of the more recent ones.”
