A DHS Fairy Tale

Posted on June 24, 2010


This is the opening part of a press release from DHS. You can, if you like read the whole thing. But don’t waste your time. It’s all about what they have done and what they are doing and it even has a loose time frame of when it will all come together. Interestingly enough, the only thing they have been able to accomplish so far is turning Americans against Americans. Suing Arizona is about as close to the border this administration has been willing to get. And to be honest, if half of what they say they are doing here is true, then the federal government should be thanking Arizona for helping them do it’s job. They have claims of screening 100 % of the rail shipments heading south. This to check for weapons , drugs and cash. Really! And to think it was only a few short weeks ago when Mexican President Calderon demanded that from Congress.

No one right now is building the double fence that law enforcement has been screaming for. But according to this release it will be done by the end of the year. They are taking credit for deploying 1200 reserve troops to the border, but they aren’t there. And in all of this, there is no mention of detaining and deporting people who illegally cross the border. They are very specific on who gets deported. And they say how they are working with local law enforcement. But ICE is on record stating they will not answer Arizona’s calls.

Will all the boycotts now turn to the federal government? Or is the federal government going to do half the job they are responsible for? And if this letter is true, why is it that no one on the border can see any signs of these supposed changes? And honestly, if it only to weeks to get to 100 % compliance searching all rail freight heading south. Why is it taking so long to get enough skimmers into the gulf to clean the oil spill?

Washington, D.C.—Over the past year and a half, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), working with its federal, state, local, tribal and Mexican partners, has made significant progress in cracking down on border-related crime and smuggling while facilitating legitimate travel and commerce.

The Administration is committed to building on these successes and addressing current challenges with our partners in order to keep our communities safe from threats of border-related violence and crime. To that end, the Department is implementing the following initiatives to strengthen and expand upon existing, successful efforts.

These initiatives come in addition to President Obama’s request for $500 million in supplemental funds for enhanced border security and law enforcement activities, and his deployment of up to an additional 1,200 National Guard troops to assist the ongoing efforts to secure the border and combat cartel violence.
