Former Border Patrol Deputy Chief: Thanks to Obama Administration, We’re Back to a Pre-9/11 Security Situation
All the positive changes, the strides we’ve made since 9/11 have been erased by Obama and his open borders policy.
Hundreds of unaccompanied minors are crossing into the U.S. daily, and one of the major security concerns with the influx of illegal immigration is that we have no idea who is coming here. Because of this, Ronald Colburn, former national deputy chief of the U.S. Border Patrol, says all the progress that was made after 9/11 is now gone.
“We’re back to a pre-9/11 situation basically, and this administration did that in the past five years,” he says. “All of the good that was done after 9/11 up to now has been reversed singlehandedly.”
Colburn, who spent more than 30 years working for U.S. Customs and Border Protection, says the resulting national-security risk has to do with the “clutter” of people at the border. He says all of the gains made since 9/11 came as a result of reducing the number of people crossing the border. The Border Patrol’s task is to sort through the haystack of people as they come across, he says. “What this situation on the border is doing is growing the haystack, is adding clutter, so that those dangerous needles get through because we’re tied up capturing, instead, juvenile children from Guatemala and El Salvador,” he says. “When you see the cartels — the Zetas and MS-13 and the Gulf Cartel — laughing about this on the Internet, you know what’s behind it.”
This is what a feckless, inept, bumbling Marxist has brought our country to.
