Even NBC has noticed that under the Obama regime, border security is a sick joke:
Ranchers Jim and Sue Chilton in Arivaca, Ariz., say drug smugglers use their land frequently, and their home has been burglarized twice.
He and his wife, Sue Chilton, complain they feel caught in the middle between the Mexican drug and immigrant smugglers and the United States Border Patrol, which the Chiltons and other ranchers accuse of concentrating most of its patrols and checkpoints miles north of the border, far beyond where the ranchers live and work. …
Sue Chilton says she believes a U.S. government decision to not to heavily patrol right along the border is, in effect, creating a free-access zone for Mexican smugglers. …
Surveying her ranchland, Sue Chilton described what happens when smugglers walk close to their house at night: “We turn out the lights, Jim gets his guns and we sit somewhere in the dark in the middle of the house where we are not close to our window and wait for the action to be finished.”
Did you ever think you would live to see Americans subsisting under these conditions in their own country?
Not to worry, our liberal overlords have a fix. They would like to take away the Chiltons’ guns.
For neighboring rancher David Beckham the problem is even more severe. Earlier this year he made the painful decision to move himself, his wife and three boys away from their ranch, which sits about 12 miles north of the Mexican border.
Beckham has had shots fired at him by foreign invaders on his own property, and even had one of his kids menaced inside the house.
The Beckhams, like the Chiltons, scoff at the Obama administration’s claims the U.S.-Mexican border is safer than ever.
“It’s a joke, they can believe what they want. They can live in candy land,” said Beckham. “You can’t have a safe and secure country without a safe and secure border, and we don’t have it. We don’t.”
Our rulers want the border porous because their long-term plans to “fundamentally transform” America require a massive influx of Third World welfare colonists. But more is coming across than undocumented Democrats:
Over the past decade … there has been a dramatic rise in the amount of illegal drugs smuggled from Mexico into Arizona. The Border Patrol there seized about one million pounds of marijuana during each of the last several years — about four times the amount seized in 2000. Other illicit drugs, such as heroin and meth, are also entering Arizona in greater quantities than ever before.
By now it is obvious that the federal government will not take effective action to secure the border. Nor will it allow states to do the job themselves. Since protecting the country from foreign invasion is the #1 responsibility of any legitimate government, this begs the question: by what right do the parasites in Washington tax us?
