Border Patrol Chief on migrant crisis: We're seeing 'increase after increase,' no signs of slowing

A U.S. Border Patrol official said Friday that authorities are seeing "increase after increase" when it comes to the number of large groups of migrants seeking asylum.

The head of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) declared Wednesday a "full-blown emergency" at the southern border, as the number of apprehensions surged last month to levels not seen in more than a decade.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection reported nearly 133,000 arrests in May. The number surpassed 144,000 when counting migrants deemed inadmissible -- more than a 30 percent increase from the prior month and double the influx recorded at the beginning of the year.

The only way to reverse or slow "the invasion" will be by the use of force.

This force could be "passive", in the form of a border barrier, if we can just get it built.

Failing that, the force used must be "active" -- military troops who will "do what is necessary" to PHYSICALLY prevent the invaders from "crossing the line".

If we're not willing to do one or the other -- or both -- then we have no more claim on the country. It's lost.

Think back to the what the Indians saw happening to their lands, as late as the 1880's. They knew their way of life would soon be lost to the coming of the white man.
At least they TRIED to fight back.

Yet we... are doing nothing.
