A new study from the Government Accountability Office finds that less than half of the 2,000-mile border with Mexico is "operationally controlled" by the Border Patrol. The study says the Southwest border with Mexico "is vulnerable to cross-border illegal activity."
The study evaluated the Border Patrol's ability to detect and respond to cross-border illegal activity and detect and respond to illegal activity at the border or after entry into the United States.
According to the study, the Department of Homeland Security has varying levels of "operational control" for 873 miles of the 2,000-mile border. The study did note that "operational control" has increased an average of 126 miles per year since 2005.
The border is divided into nine sectors, including the Yuma Sector, which reports near 100% "operational control." However, the other eight sectors report somewhere between 11-86% "operational control."
GAO conducted the study in cooperation with the House Committee on Homeland Security. GAO analyzed DHS border security documents and data supporting border security measures reported by DHS for fiscal years 2005 through 2010, and interviewed DHS officials.
When I first started teaching, I had several student loans to repay. As a consequence, I couldn't afford to go all summer without earning any money, so I took jobs as a truck driver. I drove through these areas often. They can be very desolate and lonely. It's very easy to slip into this country in these regions, despite the fact that they are among the most inhospitable, climate-wise (ever experienced 125 degree heat - I have).
We need at least five times as many people patrolling there. Where could we get them? Easy. BRING OUR TROOPS HOME AND DEPLOY THEM ALONG THE BORDER!
It's such an easy solution. The only possible reason why it isn't done is because ZOG doesn't want to. God forbid the Judeo-Capitalists should lose their slave-labour force.
If this country were National Socialist, we'd have plenty of people, probably SS securing our borders against these invaders. Every day, the need for NS in this country becomes more and more a necessity if the White Working class is to survive.
