I said this way before he even ran for President. This person no longer works for the Border Patrol, because he could not take the crap dished to them any longer. His hands were tied, leave it at that.


Under a certain administration, these border patrol could not do the job at the level they were use to doing it, things changed drastically believe u me.
Why not tell us what you learned? I'd like that info.

You can't blame someone for taking advantage of immigration laws when the government has allowed them to. Our government and the lack of law enforcement is the problem.

Actually, they are just as guilty. Just because someone leaves the front door of their home unlocked doesn't excuse anyone from entering and taking what doesn't belong to them.

First of all in confidence, I will not go against any friend that tells me something like what they did.


Basically any one can use their head, their hands like I said are tied, and felt that their job they were not able to do to the best of their ability.


I feel most can read thru the lines. I really do, their hands are tied. What are these agents suppose to do with hands tied. Now this was years ago but within this administration.


I felt bad for him, but he is much happier today But it saddens him to see what our borders have become.

I can tell you this --- About 10 years ago, our daughter and son-in-law went to a job fair held by the Border Patrol. The agent they talked to didn't mince any words. He told them that if they were hired, they would be on the graveyard shift and would be the only agent around for 70 miles. If they needed back-up, none would be coming any time soon.

In recent years, the BP has had their hands tied by the government. For example, there are some areas on the border where the desert ecosystem is fragile. The Department of the Interior told the BP that if any of them set foot in that area, they would be fined. Meanwhile illegals trample through those areas on a daily basis and the BP isn't allowed to go after them!

Talk about insanity!

I see it on the jobsite, especially three days ago when they stole about $1500. worth of my personal tools from me.

Another reason Legal Mexicans don't like illegals.

This is what goes on in the work place on job sites in NJ..

Illegals get good jobs, they become the majority on the work site.. how? they intimidate the legal whites and legal Mexican Americans.

They threaten and say that an accident will happen to them. Illegals are worse than the mafia.They are nasty and cut throat. Why? They get paid $15 to $25 an hour and they find that as a pot of gold here because in Mexico they make $2 an hour for the same work. hey make $1500.00 a week with overtime and their women get all the welfare benefits , including food stamps and heating vouchers.

If anyone new comes to the job site and are not illegal they are ousted as they are treated as the outsider who has to go.This is what goes on. this is where reality is.
Most Americans think they are poor . They are making a killing over here financially. They are living high with welfare benefits covering their cost of living, and they get a hefty paycheck as a bonus.

I know several lifelong Democrats who will be voting for Trump on the basis of this issue alone. We are sick and tired of the illegal immigration problem in this border state (Texas).

Something has to change. We're being overrun.
