Pinal County, AZ Sheriff Paul Babeu reported that Border Patrol agents are making birthday cakes for the unaccompanied minors in their facilities at the same time that drug smugglers who have been deported multiple times keep re-entering the United States on Thursday’s “Your World with Neil Cavuto” on the Fox News Channel.
Babeu stated, “I can give you a window into this administration because just a month ago, while all this was going on, we heard, myself and countless sheriffs in Fort Worth, Texas, heard Director — he told us a story how wonderful it was these Border Patrol agents, federal law enforcement, had a birthday cake for this 13-year-old Honduran, and he’s never had a cake, and I was unglued. I called him on that, and said, ‘how on earth have we arrived at this point where it’s become the job of our Border Patrol agents, who their sole purpose should be to protect our country and secure our border, is to do what you just said to have a birthday cake for a 13-year-old Honduran?’”
“We had drug smugglers that we arrested, and one of them was confirmed to have been deported 16 prior times, and now this is the 17th time, and guess what? We don’t catch them every time” he added.
Babeu further said that ISIS militants could “clearly” sneak across the southern border, declaring “if 123,000 can make it, just here, through this part of Arizona, then clearly those with military training, and all the means necessary financially, and deliberate plans, clearly they can make it through.”
