Obama Abandons the Border

Along the Arizona/Mexican border, dozens of heavily armed spotters man look out points on mountain peaks commanding the shimmering, parched landscape below. They usually man these posts for two weeks at a time, taking provisions with them to last the entire 14 days. They are equipped with night vision technology, powerful binoculars and high tech communications able to keep them in touch with command centers miles away.

But these aren’t US military personnel or law enforcement, they are soldiers of powerful Mexican drug cartels, who own these crossing points where vast amounts of drugs and human traffickers stream into the United States. These spotters are on the look out for the US border patrol who is tasked with keeping these invaders out. Hamstrung by the vast areas of desolate country they have to patrol, as well as having to respect environmentally sensitive areas which the cartels could care less about, our forces are out manned and outgunned.


Like the Cohen Brothers movie, “No country for old men,” the undercurrent of this landscape is harsh, lawless and violent. It is ruled by brutal men, who do not hesitate to resort to violence in order to protect their investment in drugs and human trafficking. Headless bodies and rape trees tell the tale of how brutal this place can be.

Mule trains of human and drug traffickers on foot, some carrying burlap sacks filled with drugs, walk into the United States under the watchful eyes of the spotters high above them. Once they reach a staging area, they change clothes so they look more American and discard what they had been wearing. They also discard the burlap bags as they transfer the drugs to vehicles. These smuggling corridors are littered with abandoned vehicles,plastic bottles, cans, clothing, shoes, food, black plastic bags, and empty burlap sacks.

You would think, that at the very least, the EPA would be enthusiastically suing the cartels for despoiling the desert environment…as enthusiastically as they sue and harass our own US corporations and industries.

We are having a war waged against us on our southern border. This war is filling our country with dangerous illegal drugs and swamping us with undocumented illegal immigrants who are overloading our social services.

A border state trampled and drowned by illegal and criminal invaders, Arizona was dealt a severe blow a few months ago by the Obama administration. They were told not to call Dept of Homeland Security for help with their immigration enforcement problem because Homeland security wasn’t going to answer.

Evidently President Obama was in a snit when the Supreme Court unanimously upheld a controversial provision requiring police to check the immigration status of people they detain and suspect to be in the country illegally. So President Obama decided to circumvent the intent of the ruling by another executive order and withdrew federal immigration enforcement help and cooperation from Arizona.

Even Justice Scalia wrote a scathing indictment against the Obama administrations intimidation of Arizona’s efforts to protects its borders when he penned: ” Arizona contradicts federal law by enforcing applications of the Immigration Act that the President declines to enforce boggles the mind.”

President Obama’s decision to suspend laws on immigration and harass the State of Arizona for trying to protect its citizens from a criminal invasion, is indeed mind boggling.

    Homeland security and it’s head, Nepolitano are WORTHLESS. They are puppets of the Muslim Obama. They must GO!

    I live close to the Mexican borders and we are experiencing more illegals than we have ever had, more crime. More illegals from foreign countries besides Mexico. Brazil, Columbia, Middle East, China and other countries. Why is Mexico allowing these people to get across the borders? How is the Mexican trucks involved in human traffic? We need more security on our borders. Bring our Military home and put them on our borders and stop this abuse. Obama already has 70,000 more refugees coming here next year. Our citizens don’t have jobs but the people working have to support people who have been in refugee camps for years and keep having babies for the world to support. The average Refugee that comes here has six kids. Their laws don’t work in their countries but they want to subject us to their laws. I read an article where if Obama loses the election the “refugees will go home” GOD BLESS OUR COUNTRY! NO MORE MONEY TO UN, Egypt, Libya, Pakistan or any other country that don’t like us. google GM jobs in China and 30 other countries 13 new plants in China since Obama has been in office, 7 new plants in Brazil! Why is the UNION allowing these jobs to go to foreign countries when we don’t have jobs here and CA has 50% or more people on Welfare and now Refugees added to Welfare. Seniors have been cut from medical and paying more out of pocket for drugs and co-payments.

    OMG! = Obama Must Go! But the truth is that GW sold the US Border Patrol down the river and Obamma kept the door revolving. GW to break Social Securitys’ bank, with BHO (or is it BHS?) “JUST” wanting to plunge America off the financial cliff and pit Poor against NOT poor in a REVOLUTION!

      The border insecurity started LONG before Bush too; Reagan granted the first amnesty, when we had a trickle; it became a torrent; Clinton’s amnesty just turned the torrent to a tsunami; and we can’t afford the next step up from that! Giving law breakers a “free pass” just encourages MANY times MORE of them to break those same laws, at the SAME time encouraging them ALL to ignore ALL of our laws! But the worst is that the mentality behind all these “amnesties” goes back to the CANAMEX corridor treaty signed during the Eisenhower administration; it’s all part of the UN’s Agenda 21!

    Over 2 years ago, the Feds posted signs along a strip running across the southern part of our state, warning Americans to stay OUT of the southern 1/5 of our state as a place that’s unsafe to travel for Americans… completely abandoning the citizens who LIVE in that part of our state. He also turned us over to the UN’s Human Rights committee for “judgement” of our lack of respect for human rights; to be judged by the likes of China, Iran… you know, the pillars of human rights standards in the world. And there are so many suits against us, some with the government of Mexico filing as a “friend of the court” from our OWN Federal government, I’ve lost count! And this article doesn’t even point out the DISEASES being brought in, among the humans, AND the fact that many are from OTHER nations even though they come through Mexico, that are DECLARED ENEMIES of America and the American people, members of organizations that are on Government watch lists as hostile to America, and yet THEY are permitted free and easy access to a neighborhood near YOU by your Federal government’s refusal to secure OUR southern border, or allow US to do so!

    This is nonsense. He didn’t abandon the border. He has been campaigning in Mexico telling the beaners about all the free stuff he has waiting for them if they want to vote democrat.

  • WATCHER

    Perhaps prosecution of the current regime will return our country to where we once were before the Marxist in Chief. The Constitution mandates the protection of our borders.

  • You can thank Washington for the problem. All they want to do is win the election America can kiss off!
