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.

Use them if required!

Someone mentioned yesterday that such actions would be illegal per posse comitatus.

That's nonsense on its face.

If American troops are prohibited from repelling foreign invaders at our own border, then what the hell ARE they good for?

Are our troops only intended to be some sort of "American Foreign Legion", or something...?

  • What if electing a moron was a mistake?

Dehumanize you’re fellow Americans and then wish death upon them.
