The "Secured" Border Isn't All Napolitano Says It Is

    Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) continued his tour of the U.S.-Mexico border, posting a new round of tweets on Wednesday that further display the need for enhanced border security.

    The “worst thing” he reported seeing was 60 unaccompanied elementary age children leaving school and crossing the border to go home to Mexico. A supervisor reportedly told Chaffetz that this happens daily.

    Worst thing I’ve seen. 60 elementary age kids leave this school in Naco, AZ…

    Then, unaccompanied, they cross the border to “home” in Mexico. No papers checked. Supervisor said it happens daily…

    Those kids aren’t tall enough to ride most things at Disneyland let alone cross an international border without an adult

    Chaffetz also reported two big drug busts made by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). The agency reportedly seized 500 pounds of marijuana and 15 pounds of meth in a bogus spare tire.

    “Lots of good CBP men and women doing tough important work,” Chaffetz wrote.

    CBP found 500 lbs of pot this morning at DeConcini Port. Found by dog…

    And CBP found 15 pounds of meth in a bogus spare tire. Found today…

    Lots of good CBP men and women doing tough important work.

    Just as a bonus, you know, to make you feel extra confident about U.S. border security, Chaffetz also tweeted a photo of part of a border fence that appeared to be either incomplete or torn down.

    Big fence on border becomes very little fence…
    — Jason Chaffetz (@jasoninthehouse) April 3, 2013

    On Tuesday, Chaffetz discovered a portion of the border that did not have any kind of a fence, and instead featured a walking path and guard rails.
  2. Just about everything the government tells us is "good" or "adequate"... is a LIE!

    New technology shows ICE catches less than half of the 'criminal aliens' (or is that undocumented democraps?) crossing the border.

    A sophisticated airborne radar system developed to track Taliban fighters planting roadside bombs in Afghanistan has found a new use along the U.S. border with Mexico, where it has revealed gaps in security.

    Operated from a Predator surveillance drone, the radar system has collected evidence that Border Patrol agents apprehended fewer than half of the foreign migrants and smugglers who had illegally crossed into a 150-square-mile stretch of southern Arizona.

    The number of "gotaways," as the Border Patrol calls those who escape apprehension, is both more precise and higher than official estimates.

    RELATED: Is the border secure?

    According to internal reports, Border Patrol agents used the airborne radar to help find and detain 1,874 people in the Sonora Desert between Oct. 1 and Jan. 17. But the radar system spotted an additional 1,962 people in the same area who evaded arrest and disappeared into the United States.

    In contrast, the Government Accountability Office, the investigative arm of Congress, estimated in January that the Border Patrol had caught 64% of those who illegally crossed into the Tucson sector in 2011.

    The new tally of unlawful border crossings could complicate White House efforts to pass comprehensive immigration reform after Congress returns from recess next week.

    The Obama administration contends America's borders are more strictly policed than ever, with nearly 365,000 apprehensions last year. Republicans have demanded more guards, drones, fencing and other security measures before legal status is granted to the estimated 11 million people believed to have entered America illegally or overstayed their visas.

    President Obama is scheduled to visit Mexico in early May, and efforts to maintain rigorous border security — to stop economic migrants moving north and American-made weapons flowing south — are likely to be among his priorities in discussions with Mexico's newly elected president, Enrique Peña Nieto.

    The new system is called Vader, for Vehicle Dismount and Exploitation Radar. It was borrowed from the Army's Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland and has been deployed in Arizona since March 2012.,0,2107595.story

    Pretty much, the official inflation and unemployment rates come to mind.
  5. LEAPup


    No shit! Double the unemployment rate from what they tell America, and here we "stand." We're now no different than North Korea, Iran, etc., in that sense. Pure sheep who have the ability to vote, and the lunatic msm have decimated this once great Country, sadly...:( :mad:
  6. LEAPup


    No way! These good guys "on our side" in the gubment could never LIE to the sheeple. Can't happen according to their propaganda buddies in the msm, whom I hold in contempt for what they've done out of greed for $$$$ and power.

    "those who ignore history, are doomed to repeat history..."

    IMO, we're REPEATING a sick time akin to Hitler having his loving followers in masses, while six MILLION people died as a result of being disarmed, and helpless...:( :mad: :mad: :mad:

    Can you believe this shit is happening on AMERICAN SOIL?!?!?! Mind-bending!:mad: :mad: :mad:

    "I am the Labor Party's Worst Nightmare. I am a White, Conservative, Tax-Paying, God fearing Australian. I am a hard working Australian and I work long hours to earn a living. I believe in God and the freedom of religion, but I
    don't push it on others. I drive Australian-made cars, and I believe in
    Australian products and buy them whenever I can. I believe the money I make
    belongs to me and not some bloody governmental functionary, Labor/Greens or Liberal, that wants to share it with others who don't work! I'm in touch
    with my feelings and I like it that way! I think owning a home doesn't make
    you a capitalist; it makes you a smart Australian. I think being a minority
    does not make you noble or victimized, and does not entitle you to
    Get over it! I believe that if you are selling me a Big Mac or any other
    item, you should do it in English. I believe there should be no other
    language option. I believe everyone has a right to pray to his or her God
    when and where they want to. My heroes are, fellow Australians like Don
    Bradman, Steve Waugh, Alan Langer, Slim Dusty, Fred Hollows and the Aussie
    scientists who invented the bionic ear - missed a few I know. I don't hate
    the rich, but hate the way they always find ways to pay less taxes. I don't
    pity the poor, I hate the way they are always crying that they are hard done
    by!! I know wrestling is fake and I don't waste my time watching or arguing
    about it. I believe if you don't like the way things are here, go back to
    where you came from and change your own country!

    This is AUSTRALIA . . .
    . We like it the way it is and more so the way it was . . . so stop
    trying to change it to look like some other socialist country! If you were
    born or legally migrated here and don't like it . . . you are free to
    move to any Socialist country that will have you. (And take Julie Gillard
    and her group with you.) I believe it is time to really clean house,
    starting with the Lodge, the seat of our biggest problems. I want to know
    exactly, where the "Do Gooder's" get their money from, and why are they
    always part of the problem and not the solution? Can I get an AMEN on that
    one? I also think the cops have the right to pull you over if you're
    breaking the law, regardless of what race, color or creed you are, but not
    just because you happen to be an illegal alien and scream that they are
    "RACISTS PIGS". And, no, I don't mind having my face shown on my driver's
    license. I think it's good . . . . I dislike those people standing in
    the intersections trying to sell me stuff or trying to guilt me into making
    'donations' to their cause . . . . Get a job and do your part to support
    yourself and your family! I believe that it doesn't take all the
    intellectuals to raise a child, it takes two parents . . . .

    I believe
    'illegal' is illegal no matter what the lawyers think! I believe the
    Australian flag should be the only ones allowed to be flown in Australia !
    If this makes me a BAD Australian, then yes, I'm a BAD Australian. If you
    are a BAD Australian too, please forward this to everyone you know . . .
    . We want our country back! My Country . . . . . I hope this offends
    all illegal aliens. My great, great, great grandfather watched as his
    friends died in the Boer War. My grandfather watched and bled as his
    friends died in World Wars 1&2. My grandfather watched as his friends &
    brothers died in the Depression of 32. My father watched as his friends
    died in Korea. I watched as my friends died in Vietnam, East Timor & Desert
    Storm. Our son's and daughters watched & bled as their friends died in
    Afghanistan and Iraq. None of them died for the Afghanistan and Iraq Flag.
    Every Australian died for the Australian flag. At a Victorian high school
    foreign students raised a Middle East flag on a school flag pole.
    Australian students took it down. Guess who was expelled . . . the
    students who took it down. West Australian high school students were sent
    home, because they wore T-shirts with the Australian flag printed on them.
    Enough is enough. This message needs to be viewed by every Australian; and
    every Australian needs to stand up for Australia. We've bent over to
    appease the Aussie-haters long enough. I'm taking a stand. I'm standing up
    because of the hundreds of thousands who died fighting in wars for this
    country, and for the Australian flag. And shame on anyone who tries to make
    this a racist message.

    AUSTRALIANS, stop giving away Your RIGHTS! THIS IS
    OUR COUNTRY ! This statement DOES NOT mean I'm against immigration! YOU
    ARE WELCOME HERE, IN MY COUNTRY, welcome to come legally:- 1. Get a
    sponsor! 2. Learn the LANGUAGE, as immigrants have in the past! 3. Live
    by OUR rules ! Dress as we Australians Do! 4. Get a job! 5. Pay YOUR
    Taxes! 6. No Social Security until you have earned it and Paid for
