Trump administration extends detention of migrant families with children
"The news the trump administration is announcing that it wants to move to scrap the so called Florez agreement this is in order to allow migrant families to be detained longer as their cases are being considered instead of having them released in just twenty days time which apparently is not enough time to to process them more than four hundred thirty two thousand members of family units have been taken into custody from October to July that is a four hundred fifty six percent increase and most are being released into the US trump backers say is all to protect the children from human trafficking not to mention the populace the vice president of the national border patrol council spoke to fox news about this this is what it comes down to in which we're seeing these groups are coming across with minors and a lot of these miners are we know within the ages of fourteen fifteen years old and we ask them for their parents in their arms you to see the individual that their with their their parents but we don't know that we don't know that for sure there's also individuals that are you know smaller that younger that are being brought in by these individuals and they're being used by the criminal element to further break the law and and you know find these loopholes in our immigration system the bottom line is this something like this helps us so we can better determine if these individuals are actually a guardian or a parent to these kids I mean it's just the amount of people that are being released without having children is without really knowing for sure if the rule gardens is it it's been a great it's pretty large I will give you even stories we've had individuals that have called to the station's asking where is my child he hasn't been released and we don't we got into this role where is your child who did you give your child off to ten days I handed off to an organization because they said they would give me extra money to be able to come into the United States so they rent their children and those are just some of the perils having to do with our southern border and the dangers

"We've been seeing more and more numbers jump on our Facebook page, too big deal. We love it. And that is it turns out that the Facebook page is the easiest way where agents can interact with us and not agents. But, I mean all the listeners, send us messages through there. It's a big deal. We also got the Twitter page at BP Greenland and the Instagram at the official, Greenland podcast and my seamless plug on Instagram, and I post a lot of stuff there little happenings here and there. And once again, I will. Throw it that disclaimer the things that I post on my personal Instagram have nothing to do with any thoughts or issues that the national border patrol council may have or the border patrol the border patrol the border patrol God forbid that I tell people, I'm representing the agency because I don't know how to lie that. Well, so I just, you know, four page to it's, it's I like it. I mean, I'm fun. Pretty crazy week. I mean a busy week with spending on stop the big meeting in town. So we had it was fantastic. Thank you to all the staff at the Marriott on second street right in front of the university of Arizona. I can finally get that off my chest and say where we had our convention, and it was not like star pass or. So Paul Perez was the executive vice president. He he's been working in, and we work for quite, you know, so right now, we're already working on her next convention just ended and we're working on pricing, and where we're going to have it in facilities, and we look at what's around the area. And what helps and what I mean, that's there's a lot of factors that look into that are into picking this place. And once again, Paul Perez than a fantastic job, his entire executive board out of real grand valley to a great job Paul's in charge of getting the, the things that we had out the training materials. Sometimes, you know what I mean? And there's always like a backpack or a bag that he hands out, you put some stuff in there for the membership for the guys that are coming in to, to do the training and this year. They, they picked Tucson there's a lot of places that get picked, but they look for we obviously were looking for affordable spots. In the past, we have had several in in. Las Vegas, Nevada. Right. And people think, oh well, you know, the union guys go to baguettes to do this, and that no, the reason they go to Vegas is because they get a very good deal on group rates at certain places, and it saves the membership a lot of money. So that's what they did. So that's how they ended up picking that spot. It was not in any way, shape or form. Thumbing our nose at the issues that we had previously with the university of Arizona. In fact, I think the opposite, it, it helped because you have a lot of the local restaurant with a little restaurants spots there, along University Avenue, just a block away from the Marriott, and the agents the entire time they were here Thursday night. Friday night, Saturday night Sunday night. They all went to these places during the lunch hour during the breakfast, our supporting the economy. That's supporting. Yes, it was a good thing. And to be honest, everybody. There was a fantastic. Everyone was was very good. All the staff at all. Those restaurants gentle Ben's. The staff there was just great. Everyone was great. You got a frog in. Fergon's. Froggatt Ferkous was fantastic. There's another spot up up the street next frog for no anchovies. Right. They were great. Just everyone was fantastic. It wants to stay. It was is a good time, the, the people of the staff from Cabrillo credit union came out here from San Diego. They were, you know, doing a bunch of giveaways, and it was, it was a good time, had by all and most importantly, the training was fantastic. Right. The training was put on by the national border patrol council attorneys. They they're just they're just great people. You know, and they're smart and their intelligence. So we had attorneys here from California, obviously from Tucson and from the Texas area. They came down the did the training. We had national meetings. We just had. A lot of stuff going on. It was it was good. We talked about a lot of issues. You know, we spent a lot of time in significant time dealing with everything that's going on. It was it was good. And then we had a dinner buffet Sunday night that you skipped out on didn't skip thrown under the bus. I thought you said Saturday, then, you know, I'm bummed because I really wanted to meet face to face Lee. You know, Chris Hector Brandon some of these guys and they asked for you. A lot of guys. Ask for you. There was guys from the northern border. They was Andy. Are we see anti in ahead to break down and tons of truth, and say, Andy doesn't really exist? Just like an Alexa. Yeah. He's he's, he's. It's me. I'm actually Andy change your voice. I just changed my voice. It's just added features here in the studio, you're mazing. So I told them say it again. Say it again. But I'm amazing. You're amazing. Myself next year. I definitely wouldn't let's get to travel hope. So. Yeah you go. There you go. But there was a lot of things that we talked about, obviously, we spoke about the five percent retention bonus that we received we talked about the new pistols, which is blocked, and, you know, all the issues not issues, but other good things about that. The mobility program is being revamped on the pistols, maybe can answer this one, but house that being incorporated. Is it like a rollout? Or is just here you go. Here's your issue. No. They're going to do a roll out is what we're hearing. They're saying they're gonna start at the northern border rate. And obviously one of the, the guns that agents have to pick from just two guns is what I'm hearing the Glock nineteen and the Glock forty seven now don't try to look up the Glock forty seven right? Because whatever you look up. It's not really the Glock forty seventy something that resembles it, perhaps whatever some photo shopping here and there, but the for the Glock forty seven show shout out to all the guys that Glock is a gun that is specifically. Designed for CB p very nice so no, not only that would no other law enforcement in the country can really able to get it. So it's not a special model just for Leo. It's like it's not a special model just for love a special model just for CB pretty cool and last time hearing office of field, operations at the custom side of the house aren't aren't gonna use it for some whatever reason, I don't know why it's I don't even get in that world. But I can tell you that, if that happens, it's gonna make that Glock forty seven in my eyes, even more elite because in the end, the only law enforcement personnel that will be carrying Glock forty seven. Is border patrol agents? And I think that's pretty cool. We had an update from the attorneys on a big lawsuit. That's been going on agents know what it is. If they've asked many times, what's, what's the deal with the lawsuit? We had the attorneys come down spoke just so you guys are aware. The, the loss did not the, the law firm did not go under break break up or anything. They just changed their name. And that people were like, oh, my gosh. What happened? They did a name change. That's what happened. They changed their name everything going as planned. I'm not gonna get into all the specifics of that here on the show because I just don't think we should but I can tell you that it's small kinks are being figured out now. And were the I can see the finish line. We're gonna that's going to be a great news for all the agents out there that signed up. I think it's, it's fantastic. You deserve it, it was a lot of work that was done by many members of the national border. Procon. So, you know, this is what happens some guys, come up with ideas. But in the end NBC's the one that has to do a lot of the work. I'm not trying to knock the guys that come up with the ideas. But at the same time, I don't want the guys that come up with the idea is to knock the guys got to do all the work, you know, and that's basically where where I'm at. I'm gonna talk about the elephant in the room row quick. Oh boy. Hit the brakes and, and talk about the elephant in the room that we've talked about for awhile. Especially during the convention, and that was a lot of things on the news on the acting secretary, Kevin mcilveen there was, obviously Sunday's disturbing issues that have been talked about. And in the end would people are saying is all the fingers point towards Mr. McClean, perhaps he wasn't on board with some of these. I don't want to call them rates because that's not what they are. He wasn't on board with some of the enforcement of the arrests that they were going to do across the country. And I'm going to break down on what that is. We have individuals that have tried to come into the country and they have been successful in their here legally, I guess, because they're going through an asylum claim when you're going through an asylum and claim you're here legally you enter legally and until you're cases heard, and it has been determined that perhaps you do not have a proper claim for asylum. That's when you're ordered to leave the country because they say, okay, your claim was false or your claim doesn't hold any water. It's not done. Denied temporary status. What they have until then. Right. Yes. So since it's denied you gotta leave right? There's also individuals that that apply for this status and they choose not to ever show up to court or show up to, to explain their status. So all of a sudden, now you've exhausted that. So you're ordered you know you're here illegally now at that. Point, he never showed up to court. So what they agencies we're going to do is they were going to go after those individuals that thumbed their nose at law enforcement that decided to say Adam care, I'm not going to show up or those that did show up, and it's it was figured out that they can't be here anymore. It's similar to a guy that's a US citizen. Commits a crime. There's a warrant out for his arrest. And so what happens you go after him? Right in this case, we would go after those people, and they would be sent back to their country of origin but unfortunately, something came out, and they said, oh, these are the cities that are going to be attacked. And then our own law enforcement people that have taken oaths to serve and protect decided to start pushing stuff out to the communities, that may.
Pentagon Shifting Funds to Pay for Construction of Trump's Border Wall
"The Pentagon apparently shifting more money to help secure our southern border with Mexico. USA radio's Timberg explains. Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan visited the border town of macallan Texas over the weekend. And he says the Pentagon is going to do what they need to do to help keep our border between the United States and Mexico safe. Brandon Judd, president of the national border patrol council says the only reason the Pentagon has to step in is because because congress isn't doing their job. The president is left to use his authority to action look at ways that he can solve a crisis. If congress would actually step up, we wouldn't need the. Department of fence, but because they're not stepping up the president has to step in and he has to solve this problem on his own. Remember, you don't accept nominations for political appointees to be popular you accept nomination to be a political appointee to do your job. And we have to have the do that job.

"border patrol council" Discussed on 1170 The Answer
"Have our next guest with us. None other than Chris Cabrera of the national border patrol council. Local three three zero seven Mr. Cabrera you with us. Yes, I am. Thank you so much for joining us, your a member of the organization, you're on the executive border as vice president of the same organization whose president was with President Donald Trump at the podium a few weeks ago is that correct? Yeah. That's that's correct. Our our guys are up there that day, and you've served in the US military in the army as a paratrooper, and then spent most of your professional career in the border patrol, correct? Yes, I've been in the border patrol now for just over seventeen years. Wow. Thank you for your service. Most the military in the border patrol. I'd like to take politics out of the equation for this discussion just share with our listeners because we are on one hundred twenty stations plus across the country from Los Angeles to New York is our border secure, Mr. Cabrera. You know, unfortunately, the answer is absolutely not. I hear a lot of talk on on the radio and on TV that the majority of things come through the port of entry and a wall. Do a lot of things a lot of contraband does come through the Puerto victory. There's a lot coming through the southern border. Whether it's where the wall or whether where it's not just last night. Was on shift. I think we apprehended somewhere around five hundred people four hundred people just in my area. How many obligate four or five hundred in daily occurrence? What period? The one day. Grand valley in mccowan station, which is stationed down here. We usually see about five or six hundred a day just at our station. And then we had eighty eight other stations in our sector. Okay. That's absolutely stunning. Mr cabrera. Of the people the hundreds that your daily these all political asylum seekers of these refugees from political oppression. No, not at all. You know, we we do see a lot of people claiming the the asylum and granted I'm sure a lot of them. I do qualify for it. We do see a lot of people claiming that asylum that are turning themselves in. We also see a lot of people that are still trying to avoid detection data are going through the brush that are running that or getting in and trying to outrun the border patrol. So it by no means is just people turning themselves. We have we still have both sides of of of what's coming across not to mention the drugs that are coming in and not to mention the money and the weapons better going south into Mexico. Stunning. I mean, these figures are truly stunning. The Obama administration. President Obama told us that seventy five percent of the border is secure. Is that true? Mr cabrera. That's not even I mean that to me that's a laughable, and it has nothing to do with with who the president is the border patrol's own numbers have told us that we're at fifty one percents effectiveness as far as what our apprehension rate is. So in a sense fifty percent of what comes across we catch. Another fifty gets away our numbers I'm talking to agents and and going out into these areas, you know, forty five fifty percent somewhere in there. We have a lot of areas that are that are completely uncovered or severely understrength. Just for the simple fact of so much of our manpower is going to the processing of these people that are turning themselves in. So that's another part of this that that needs to be addressed is it stopping that factor of of of people coming in because they know we're going to release them. So no more than a half over southern border is secure. Yeah. At any given time. Yeah. That's exactly right. Incredible. I know the border patrol is not going to be happy with those with that with that. But I I can tell you one hundred percent honesty that that's that's what it is. And this this isn't this isn't a recent thing. So you you have almost two decades of experience in the service. How long has our immigration system being this badly broken? You know, it's been for quite some time. I know in in two thousand five we were getting hit with a lot of central Americans just coming over because they knew we were overcrowded, and we couldn't house people. So what happened is we would it was the same thing to catch and release come in? And we would release them into the country. And then they came up with a system called expedited removal where we could fast track the process once we started that it just it's stopped literally overnight it just stops. And then now they find this loophole in two thousand thirteen about the political asylum, and they've been taking advantage of this loophole for a very long time. Now granted I know there's a lot of people that do qualify for it. But it's being watered down by people who do not qualify for it. And and that's where Ella get into the country get into the country saying they need political asylum. They're given a court date, and then what happens. No show up to some of those court dates until the very end when it's the final determining dates, and then usually they don't show up at all. The mobile home as soon as they leave our custody and past the checkpoint. They never hear from them receiving. In a way to get it. So we've got this loophole. We've got the president who wants a five billion dollars to start building a wall in earnest in the last two minutes, we have Mr. Cabrera this is Chris Cabrera Cabrera of the national border patrol council. Executive board local three three zero seven what do you need as the man who's protecting us on the board? What does your service need now from from congress? We need political willpower. That's what we need. We need to to get away from this partisan democrat Republican system, and we need people that are going there on both sides and vote their conscience. Okay. So we need we need political will on Capitol Hill. What do you need? What do you need operationally? Well, two things we need. What we need. We need more manpower because we don't have the infrastructure, which would include a wall a barrier. Put whatever they want to call it a partition. I don't care what they call it. But it works, and we need the resources to do our job and do our job correctly. And we don't even have the proper night-vision equipment available to all agents at all times. When we go out to the field the safety equipment, the the body on the you don't have sufficient he had body armor. But we don't have. Yup. Armitage needed to deal with the threat of the cartels in Mexico. So you would need up armored vehicles as well because the threat is so so cartels, w we we do we on occasion, we take fire from across the river. We do have spillover violence at times, it's not an everyday thing. But it does happen. And and I think one thing that really needs to be put into this is. What's the catch and release needs to be addressed that that really needs to be addressed? I would like to see the front end instead of waiting six years. Judge. Within a matter of hours or days. And then have them decided are are we gonna dig further into this asylum cage, or are we going to send them back to their home country because there is no valid claim that that I that needs to be addressed very soon. So you heard it here.

"Eight point three and fifteen ten WNYC. So I'm tired of the east said she said, I want somebody who's actually done the work. I want somebody who is not politically motivated. And in fact, if I can find somebody who's politically motivated, perhaps even the other way. Wouldn't be bad. If I could just get the facts. Mark Morgan is a career FBI official. He served as border patrol chief for the last six months of the Obama administration was ousted by President Trump at the beginning of his presidency prior to that he was the assistant Commissioner to the US customs and border protection. And a police officer LAPD he served as a he served in the Marine Corps for eleven years. And I just want the facts on what's really happening on the border. I don't want political spin welcome to the program. Mark morgan. How're you? I'm doing well. Thanks for having me Glenn. You bet can you can you run down. And fact, check some of the things that have been said about the border, and can you tell the American people what's really happening? What are we facing? Yes. I can tell you if the American people listening. I mean, what you said in your opening introduction, which I appreciated isn't exactly why I broke my silence after all this time as time went by at first I wanted to give people deference that hey, they will just misinformed or because they were viewing facts to their own individual political ideological ends that that they were unintentionally misinforming people. But as time went by, you know, I don't say this with with happiness, but I feel that there's actually some intense behind the distortion of the facts, and what's out there. Sure. Why broke my silence? I'll give you one example. If anyone says that the wall. Ineffective that there's simply misleading the American people. There are facts. Oracle data that shows that the wall as part of the multi layered approach of infrastructure, technology and personnel when those things coalesced together, and they're provided affectively along the southwest border. When it works and go to the fact, you know, there was an article that was published by the Union County sheriff's in Arizona that said when the wall when the wall along with technology and personnel came to his territory he saw over a ninety percent reduction at immigration, and he's all overall Klein and his territory reduced drastically. That is a fact that's not made up in the United States four patrol. When I go there again, I was there. I don't understand. Why pundits are not listening to the experts? Look, you know, so you know, the the president of the border patrol council. Brandon. And the current White House. Right. And the reason why the right is because they've got decades and decades they've dedicated their entire life along the southwest border protecting our country, and they're out there saying that the wall works he talked about in the gals San Diego. We could go on and on forever where it's fast, Glenn is not political ideology. It's not twisting. That's the fact so yesterday yesterday the spin was from Nancy Pelosi. Well, they're just going to tunnel under the wall. As glenn. I tell you. I again, I I'm trying not to throw myself in the political Rena. I think it's almost impossible talk about this issue without it being infused in politics. But that is a ridiculous statement. It is absolutely ridiculous. Why? Well, so it twists the facts are tunnels used have been used are they successful. Yes. That is a minute problem that that is a a small problem of the overall problem, and I can tell you that customs and border protection. Specifically see me they're working every day to improve their ground, sensor technology and tunnel technology, working with the ear, Israel, etc. Improve that technology. So so that the argument is disingenuous because the bad guys changed their tactics techniques and procedures therefore we should do away with other infrastructure that helps reduce the other techniques they use. I mean, you see it doesn't make any sense. Can you can you help me with because I think this is a humanitarian crisis because we are. So we are sending mixed signals all the time people are sending their children over the sex trade is just outrageous. The rape on women. You have a thirty percent chance. If you're a woman, you're going with the mule thirty percent chance of being raped. Can you describe how a wall is actually the humanitarian thing to do you have any facts? Yes. You're you're you're one hundred percent, right. Everything that you just said you're one hundred percent, right. And that's based on my experience. In fact, an experience of a whole heck of a lot of other people have been doing a lot longer than I have cause. Remember is the FBI? I was in charge El Paso division, y'all for my walk from my office. I could see wars. So I've lived for two years and worked at for two years. They're right on the border. And I'm telling you when when I became chief of the border patrol almost immediately and back in two thousand sixteen almost immediately. You know, what word I was using humanitarian crisis and that was back in two thousand and sixteen in two thousand fourteen when the onslaught of family units and then involved to the unaccompanied minors started this this is not a crisis that just happened today. It's a crisis that's been going on for a long time. And it is a dual had a national security and humanitarian crisis. And here's where the wall helps. So again, it's and no one is. And this is the worst disingenuous to when people wanna. Try the sound say well, the wall won't solve everything. Absolutely, correct. But guess what no one has ever said that there's not a single border patrol agent and the history of the border patrol or any leader within the agency that has ever said the wall work, but it is a significant part of that multilayered approach. And here's where it will help everything that you just talked about by building that wall, infrastructure, technology and personnel. What is going to do is take away the avenue from the cartels, and from the coyotes, they will no longer have the avenues to to what I really think is a systematic abuse and torture of the people that they're bringing through this diary. I agree. And it's what you just said. And this is what I don't understand the pundits political side. I. Glenn? I don't understand it. It's just what you said. These are girls that are being smuggled as human smuggling efforts, and they're being forced into the sex, trade, and etc. It's horrendous and that we would not support everything that experts says we need to to mitigate that and have a positive impact on that. I don't understand you build that wall. You have the technology. You have the personnel. It takes away that avenue from the cartels in the coyotes. And now the only way that somebody can get in to the point of entry. And that gives us a heck of a lot better shot Mark Morgan former border patrol chief of the FBI for a long time. Yes, Marine Corps. So with the wall. This is something that a lot of people will bring up Mark is you know, as you pointed out tunnels could theoretically go under it. People could you saw through it. They could climb over it. There are ways to get past walls. But the theory is number one you're gonna get rid of the low hanging fruit. Right people who don't wanna do that too. You're going to delay anyone who's trying to attempt that so that border patrol can can get there, isn't it as well a sign like when you're in a country, and and you see pictures of the wall on television. There's a lot of people that'll be dissuaded just from knowing that. The wall exists are those things accurate. Again, you know, you've done your homework, and he's talked a lot of people everything you just said is right. It's a deterrence. It's a delay. It affords the United States border patrol to use other operational tactics to secure the border, and let me mention something about the tunnel again. Because again, it's just outrageous comments. So so because there may be other message to get around it. You don't want to build it again. It makes no sense it defies common sense. And I know the American people are smarter than that. Let's talk about tunnel. Just for example. It is used. But because you could imagine is it takes a walk a lot of time energy and effort to build a tunnel. That's just not something that happens. All the time. This easily dot is very limited happens very little in the grand scheme of things. And so again, the argument is just ridiculous. It's like so you because my neighbor's house has been broken into a few times, you know, what what's the point of getting my security system. Right. I mean 'cause because they can still get in again. It just doesn't make sense. Mark. I m I urge you urge you to keep politics out of this. You are a powerful spokesperson because you you worked in the last six months of the Obama administration. And then, you know, Trump ousted you at the beginning of his presidency. And so you have credibility. You're not. I don't know if you're a Trump supporter or not a Trump supporter. I don't wanna know. But I know that you worked for Obama ousted by Trump, and you have the facts, please keep politics out of this because you will you can open people's eyes and minds because you don't if you had an axe to grind might be grinding it the opposite way. So thank you for that. And thank you for being willing to take the slings in the arrows for for standing up. Can you can you? Go ahead. Go ahead. No. I'm just saying. Thank you. I I I sincerely. Appreciate you. Giving me the forum because that's exactly right. And again, that's why both my silence because I I don't have a there's nothing political. I I just want to provide the American people exactly what you started off with just the facts. Let's talk truth honesty, in fact, and and I I have to believe that have enough people get out there, and they tell the fact the American people will get it and understand it, and we can do the right thing for our country. Are you are you up on the facts enough to tell the truth about the illegal immigrant child that died right around Christmas that especially Cossio Cortez has been saying that, you know, the the border guard is so bad in so wicked that, you know, in their custody this child died are you familiar enough with that to be able to tell the story? I am enough. Because I think there's also some historical context that's important too. And again, it's hard to talk about this issue. Because it's so and so politically charged with without talking about comments like that. But here's what I would say Clinton is done on either side of the aisle, it doesn't matter. But when somebody that we elected to go to represent us says divisive thing to accuse men and women. Does that get up every morning and pin on the badge and risk their lives? And I said last night on Tucker, you know, United States border patrol agents one hundred and twenty seven of them have given their lives on the front lines of this this country protecting and and that that's not manufactured Glenn. That's real that's real manufactured stats does not a manufactured crisis. And I can tell you if you don't mind, so when I was chief I remember going to the border patrol and and the chief patrol agent man, and I were were were headed towards the border. It was like midnight because a whole group of unaccompanied minors had had had gotten there. I wanted to see that firsthand. And I told him don't look the troops know that I'm there. So we walked up, and we see this large group of uninterrupted miners. And there was this little boy that looked to be about nine days, hold the hand of of what I believe to be a sister, which was about six or seven. But what I saw and they were terrified right there. Just nine little boy and this girl terrify hold each other's hands. Knelt down in the dirt. And he's talking to them in Spanish, and he's talking to them with. I mean, I'm getting choked up right now because he he was talking to them with with the utmost, dignity, respect and compassion. And he has no idea chief was there. And I looked at that. And I looked at men Padilla, and I said, wow. And he's talking to the smoker employed like like they were his own. Yeah. I've I've I've seen it myself Mark, I'm out of time. But I've seen it myself. Thank you so much and we'd like to talk to you again, Mark Morgan former.

"This is all things considered from NPR news. I'm a shell Martin. We're going to start the program discussing the partial shutdown of the federal government, which is entering its third week. It's now tied for the third longest in history with the president demanding billions for the border wall. He wants said Mexico would pay for and Democrats refusing. There's little hope for an end to the shutdown soon. President Trump said today that federal workers will quote make an adjustment because they want to see the border taken care of unquote throughout the program today, we're going to hear from some of those federal workers and also people who rely on federal services. My name is Gabriella Lopez. I work for a technology company over in Pennsylvania. The shutdown has been really really stressful for me, I've recently finished college, and I'm trying to enroll in an income driven repayment plan. But that requires information from the IRS, obviously, I can't get that. So in the meantime, the interest is just rising and rising. This is also putting a damper on me trying to purchase my first home. I'm looking to see if I can find maybe a part time job to try to make up the interest because I need to have that that the income ratio at certain level before I can purchase my first home. I thought I graduated I'm gonna get my first house early. And do what I have been told will make me successful. Now, I feel kind of deflated like everything I've been told everything that I'm supposed to do still equals out to the wrong thing. So now, I'm just at this point one checking every day to see one are they hoping they open. I'm feeling really uncertain. I feel like I'm a huge planner, and like I make plans about planning, and I feel like I've followed my plan graduate. Waited and have my savings together and did all the research to figure out housing loans. And now I'm being punished the ranks of federal workers going without pay include the nation's approximately twenty thousand border patrol agents. Still three national leaders of the agents union, the national border patrol council stood next to President Trump at the White House last week as the president insisted he would resist any effort to reopen the affected agencies and start paying federal workers salaries. If congress does not meet his demand for money for a border wall. But those union leaders did not take any questions so reporters weren't able to ask them how their members feel. So we decided to call an agent we know he's a twenty plus year veteran of the border patrol whom we met on assignment in San Diego. He previously served as president of the national border patrol council. Local sixteen thirteen in San Diego Tarrant shake agents. Schick, thank you so much for joining us. Oh, thank you for having me. It's always a pleasure. Appreciate that. At the White House briefing the border patrol council. President Brandon Judd gave this very full endorsement of. President Trump's position I'll just play a little bit of what he said walls, actually work. I promise you that. If you interview border patrol agents, they will tell you that Walsworth so shake from your understanding of things in from your representation of the folks, you work with is that the position of most of the agency, you know, is that your position. Yes. That is my position and the wording changes from walls to barriers to fencing. And I I think barriers work and that's been proven especially here in San Diego. You can come here, and you can see the places that are more secure due to the fact that we have barriers here. So I agree with that statement in and I think most border patrol agents know that that is the fact that they do help and that they do work are there any other measures that border patrol agents would like to see funded. Yes. And that's the thing walls and barriers don't work on their own they need boots on the ground. So we need increased staffing we need radios that are up to date. We need the infrastructure as far as the roads to get to those barriers. So there's a lot of other things that need to be built as well as the barriers in. I think that's what sometimes we feel as though the focus goes away from because there's much more to this picture than just a quote unquote, wall this morning, we heard from the mayor of macallan, Texas, Jim darling who said that the crisis on the border now with so many asylum seekers presenting themselves to border patrol agents is a really need more people, and partly what you need is more social workers to process these claims to work with people who in some cases are in dire circumstances, and your you actually are counselor yourself, and I wanted to ask if you think that that might be true. Yes, I do agree with that. And that's when I was saying that big picture. Those are the things that need to be part of this conversation there needs to be. Yes. More social workers there needs to be more immigration judges. Because those are the ones that are processing. All these claims in all of the the numbers that are coming over are overwhelming to us. But on the back end, we just do the front end of the back end where the investigation has to be done where the paperwork has to be processed. Whether people have to be interviewed, they haven't increased their staffing at all. So that's another thing that has to be part of this conversation and should be a part of this budget. The agents are due to get their paychecks this coming week on January eleventh, and it looks as though I mean, if the if the talks continue as they have been with without any apparent progress. It looks as though you and fellow agents won't be getting paid. But as a central personnel. They are expected to stay on the job. And I wanted to ask you know, how is morale? Well, Morales definitely taken a hit the guys and gals that I work with they really one they appreciate the support. And they appreciate this topic being at the forefront of the discussion. But it is something that does way in the back of your mind because our guys and gals have families. They. Have bills to pay. They have things that need to be done and on top of that they still have to work and put their lives on the line without receiving any compensation, and that goes against every labor union rule that I've ever heard of that's terri- shake. He has served as a border patrol agent for more than twenty years. He is also a counselor in private practice. And he was kind enough to join us from his home in San Diego agents. Schick, thank you so much for talking to us once again, we appreciate it. Thank you very much. I appreciate you. Having me we're gonna turn now to what may or may not be a new third rail in the new congress. It is the question of impeachment. Congressman Brad Sherman quietly reintroduced articles of impeachment against the president while the president and some Republicans seized on newly elected congresswoman Rex she that Talib's ad-libbed call from peach mint at a reception where she was speaking to lend base, the Democrats as unserious and uncouth. Meanwhile, democratic leaders are advocating a cautious approach today on CBS Sunday morning. House speaker Nancy Pelosi said congress needs to wait to see what comes out a special counsel Robert Muller's investigation. If and when the time comes for impeachment will have to be something that has such a crescendo in a bipartisan way yesterday, though, New York Times columnist David Leonhardt added his name to the list of those calling for impeachment, or at least for the Democrats to hold aggressive hearings to make the public case for it in a lengthy up. Ed he wrote that quote waiting to remove President Trump from office is too dangerous. And that the cost of removing a president from office is smaller than the cost of allowing this president to remain, unquote. And David Leonhardt is with us. Now. Welcome. Thank you so much for talking with us. Thank you for having me as I said, it's a it's a lengthy piece, and we don't have time to discuss all of the details of it. But it addresses two issues. Why impeachment? And why now so I'm going to start by asking you why? Now. I think the answer to why now is that the dangers that President Trump presents to the country are growing you can see that the moderating influences in his administration. Like General Mattis are leaving you can see him acting on more of his impulses like pulling troops out or shutting down the government. And so we have long known that he is unfit for office. But Republicans are starting to have a sense for the political costs. He creates for their party. And as you know that this isn't going anywhere without congressional Republicans getting on board either publicly or privately, so what's your evidence that a focus on? I mean for you. This is a matter of substance. This is a matter of fact, but for other people. You know, whether or not it is a matter of fact, it's a matter of fact that they can or cannot explain to their supporters. Right. So what is your evidence that congressional Republicans would be amenable to these facts as you understand them. So in the end politicians almost always act in their own personal self interest, their political self interest. And I think that when Republicans look at the reality they just lost the popular vote in the in the house midterms by almost nine percentage points, President Trump's approval rating is just forty percent. And maybe it's not going to go a lot lower. But it's shows no evidence of going higher. And so I just think that if Democrats are able to keep try to keep some attention on how unpopular his agenda is and how corrupt he and his administration have been and the many ways he is acting like no president before him. I think there is a significant chance it's not guaranteed. But I think there's a significant chance that his support starts to weaken. And the only other thing I'd add to that is that he already has less support from his own party in congress than any other president in memory. So Republicans have not defied him the way I wish they would the way I think it's their patriotic duty to do. But they have also not supported him the way or Bush or Clinton or Bush or Reagan, and I could go on were supported by members of their own party. I think his support right now is broad but shallow, and it would not shock me. If he struggles to keep that support as Robert Muller issues as report, and as the year goes on and finally, many Democrats in any other outspoken individuals like, for example, the former FBI director James Comey who's fan of this president obviously have argued that impeachment is a distraction from credible opponents to get themselves sorted out in advance of the two thousand twenty election. Including some of your own colleagues in the New York Times editorial board. Why are they wrong? Well, I'm sympathetic to to a couple of parts their argument. I agree with the idea that impeachment right now would be a distraction impeachment right now would be a mistake. But I think Democrats should continue making the case for removal from office. The reason why I don't think it's okay just to wait for twenty twenty. I think people are underestimating the potential for a true crisis. Imagine if there were a war somewhere in the world and the United States had to decide whether to get involved, it would be a really irresponsible to leave Trump in office knowing he is unfit for the presidency. The second reason why I don't think we should just passively wait for twenty twenty is the precedent. He again is acted the way. No president in our lifetimes has he's treated the presidency is a branding opportunity. He's broken campaign finance law. He's obstructed Justice. I don't think that we want to set a precedent that as long as you win election. You're allowed to complete your terminal matter what that was New York.

"It's proven we know it. Brandin jet the president of the national border patrol council. What's the answer to that? Why is it yet again that we haven't had Chuck Schumer Nancy Pelosi half to answer? To that claim to that charge to to that desire need, why is it that the border patrol for the first time ever endorsed, not just the wall plan, but he presidential candidate. Because they felt it was that important talked a little bit about perception versus reality. Hey, it is Brian mutt? Your friend in south Florida, host of the morning rush. WJ known West Palm Beach, the Brian Mudd show w in Miami. And it's always an honor and a pleasure to be here. As a guest host for the great one, Mark Levin, and we are all in luck. Because guest host the palooza ends tonight on Monday, his brilliance is back with all of us. Now, while we take a look at perception of reality. The southern border year per permanent. So if your perception your perception is that we do not need additional. Border fencing walls. What have you anything physical down there? How is it? The you can just cast aside the reality, it's a spouse to you. By the folks around the southern border the rally they're doing the job. How can anybody justify that one? See if the perception is that it's not needed. Would you personally feel different? If that was your reality. You're the person down there. You probably have seen just a little taste of some of what takes place, for example, projectiles come across. And then heaven forbid they actually use tear-gas, right? Then they have to deal with it. I was that was that overly aggressive. It's very easy for somebody. Who's in a newsroom in New York to question, isn't it? But what were the reality be? If that person was not in a newsroom in New York, but rather was that border patrol agent that had lobbed data? Reality told the different then. Talk about perception and reality. We're talking about this partial government shutdown and the reality is that our household. Our average L household costs for federal government employees is fifteen thousand two hundred dollars per year. If we actually had a cut checks, unpaid as to the federal government to pay all the federal employees that eat up that fifteen thousand two hundred dollars per year. What we challenge the status quo. What the reality of what we're paying for begin to set in would you feel differently about it with the status quo? Be okay. Or would you see the potential of that fifteen thousand dollars to your family and go? Wow. Is this really the best use of my money? The perception is very easy to just go along status quo government until the reality sets in now because the federal government has done its level best over generations to reverse. The course protecting itself. Protecting the status quo with federal withholding white at the top of the list. So you don't see it. We we just take it from you. And you're so fortunate to get to keep what you earn even though it's the exact opposite federal government doesn't have a dollar until we've earned it. And then we pay it to the federal government. But what the reality be different? I still even with yesterday's question. When I asked what you would you rather have three thousand eight hundred dollars this year, Warren into the partial government shutdown. Would you write personally a check for thirty eight hundred dollars to in the partial government shutdown because that's the savings. That's the savings per household. I if this war just to go on in perpetuity, which again is not good governance every time I put out something like that. Somebody's way is that. Right. And then we can't go. I'm not saying this is the right way to go about it. I'm illustrating points. Yes. Two weeks without a quarter of the federal government and the sun still rises, and we have the best economy in a generation. Oh, by the way. But the broader point is we do not need anywhere near as much government as we have. And if we were actually tasked with having to pay for it on an ongoing basis and really think about what we're paying for. We would do it differently. I doubt we would do it differently. I have no doubt the liberals would do differently. I have no doubt that. Of Nancy Pelosi and her family were on the southern border in areas where there isn't any fencing, and they were tasked with having apprehend whatever comes across the border. They might feel a little bit different about maybe providing some type of physical barrier. Right. So here's more perception and reality for you. Some interesting information. Came out the Pew Research Center on overall crime in this country. Just conceptually for moment. If I were to ask you if you think we have more or less crime if we're more or less safe over say twenty five years ago. What would you say generally in this country? If you think that we have more crime, well that makes you normal. According to sixty eight percent of folks think that crime is actually rising however over the past twenty five years, we actually seen a decline in fact, violent crime violent crime up forty nine percent property crime is actually down fifty percent. You see the difference in perception versus reality. One of the concepts. I've talked about for awhile, we are still somewhat trained conditioned inclined to think that the mainstream news media has more influence than actually does. And I will always remind you that if mainstream news media, which according to the media research center has been ninety one percent negative, and it's coverage of the Trump administration ran along the mainstream news, but he had the kind of influence that at times, we think it has there. There's no way in Haiti's that Donald Trump is president the United States. Right. So by virtue of heme, even being president. You'd know, you know, even though it might fr. Straight you that they're not winning their influence is waning. But the most pervasive form of bias in news media is a mission the information that you don't receive. So where this all comes together in where this fits into the the very different puzzle pieces here when you are not presented with the reason why we are seeing climb come down. When you're not hearing that crying has come down that is a form of bias in and of itself. The Pew Research Center is not some kind of right wing organization, you're going, well, the, you know, crime Sasser down. That's very interesting. So we're I ended up doing the next layer of research into this being in Florida. I pay attention to obviously, everything that's going on in our state here. Last year we received word that Quine reached a forty seven year low in our state forty seven year low. This while Florida had an all time record number of gun owners with the more concealed carry permit holders in Florida than any other state in the country surprises a lot of people even four radiance. And when I ended up taking a deeper dive, you could actually take a look and connect the dots. And see that the more. Legal gun owners. He had in the state the lower the crime rate, which actually coincided with other information other information like this that the average concealed carry permit holder is fifty percent less likely to ever commit a crime than someone who doesn't own a gun. That's all part of bias, a news media omission of that type of information coincides with other information going back to the Clinton administration which found that there is far more far more crime that is prevented by the fence of USA firearms. The never committed with them. That also was backed up by research by multiple universities, including four to state in recent years once again showing the defensive use of firearms prevents more crime, then is ever caused by it. But what is put in front of you? Well, we do see that. There are some really horrific events really big bad awful events kind of colors. Our perception. You might have something like what happened in Vegas, or we might have something like what happened at the pulse nightclub in Orlando or Stillman Douglas and Broward County, Florida, those types of things often color our imagination, and that is where we still have mainstream news media influence that is calling the picture that is also false. And part of the reason that I'm bringing this up. There was a piece of legislation proposed yesterday that not many people know about or or paid attention to its gun control. And it came from none other than Senator Marco Rubio. And you're gonna what's all this about. So every time you have a new congress all the pending legislation from a previous congress that is dead that Bill on Capitol Hill from schoolhouse rock. He was part of the top two percent. Only two percent proposed legislation ever passes into. Becoming law and literally an average of more than ten thousand bills die when with each new congress that comes into session in the wake of the shooting. Stephen Douglas in Florida last year Marco Rubio proposed some reforms that became part of comprehensive gun control here in Florida. And it went nowhere. The very first thing he decided to do in the new congress was propose it yet. Again. Now, here's something to watch. Whatever you happen to think of it your name, we tend to also through perception and reality. I think that everything is necessarily partisan, for example, any type of gun control or reform is necessarily something that Republicans stone one in necessarily something that Democrats do want and and the like, but somewhere along the line there can be a level of pragmatism that enters the equation. And this is where Ford is a little bit anomalous this way four dead pass comprehensive gun control reform last year. And it happened to be reformed that as a proud supporter of the second amendment and a gun owner, I generally supported and it happened to pass with a completely Republican controlled state government here in Florida happened to be signed into law by our Republican governor, Rick Scott. Who happens to be the incoming junior Senator from Florida? So as Marco Rubio proposed this as you have Rick Scott that is going to be another Senator from Florida who actually helped install it and make it happen. One of the things you're likely to see playing Al is some type of reform here. Now, you might be aware the President Trump ended up using his pen to sign out through kid of action bump socks he is also indicated that he could be open to some type of reform obviously, Democrats if they are serious about any types of reform the system might get behind this in the house. There are actually two types of legislation to two directions. The might have a better chance. A better chance of passing in this new divided congress then previously you might not like it. But this happens to be one of them, potentially this gun control. All the forest style reform that could take place federally. The other happens to be an infrastructure, which of course, is something that President Trump ran on. But Republicans didn't want to fund through digital death spending. But Democrats have been supportive of. So just a little bit of information to kind of put in some of the perceptions of the reality that also some of what's going on in some of what you're likely to hear about about the time that perhaps this partial government shutdown does come to an end, I'm Brian Mudd in for the great one..

"Everyone. My name is Hector on the vice president of the national border patrol council. I am also border patrol agent or the Texas border. I just want to talk about some of those criminals that border patrol agents apprehend on a daily basis, we're talking about murderers, rapists, people that commit very serious crimes in this country is has been doing an amazing job in deporting a lot of these people back to their countries. Unfortunately, once we deport these people, these people will not stay their country, these Cremona aliens that have been released from jail that have been deported. We'll come right back into the United States. However, we had a physical barrier. It we had a wall we will be able to stop that. Again. We will thank President Trump for advocating for border patrol agents. And again, we asked her congressman to fund border security and for the border wall. Thank you. So this meeting was set up a long time ago. It just came at a very opportune time, and I thought we were all set again, the Oval Office working on different plans in different ways of stopping the problems that we have in our country and other countries have problems, but nobody like ours. The economy makes it even more. So the economy is bringing people in because we're doing so well with the economy unemployment is now three point seven percent. And that's among the lowest we've ever had lowest in fifty years, and among certain groups, a lowest historically, so I just appreciate them being here. I said let's go out to see the press. You can tell them about the importance of the wall. They basically said, and I think I can take the word basically out without a wall. You cannot have border security without a very strong form a barrier. Call it what you will. But without a wall. You cannot have border security won't work. You see what's just been put out on social media where thousands of people are rushing the border having the drone fly overhead. And I think nobody knows much more about technology, this type of technology, certainly than I do having drones and various other former of sensors they're all fine. But they're not going to stop the problem set this country has we've never had more people wanting to come to the United States, and that has to do with the economy and has to do with a lot of other things where we're doing great as a country. But the better we do the more people want to come in. So folks, I just want to thank you very much. It's an honor to be with you. And I'm glad you came and blood. We came out here. And first time I've ever done. This is the first time I've done it for you. And I'm very proud of that. Because you've done a fantastic job. I want to. Thank you, Chris. Thank.

"A shift takes a toll on some of these vehicles are literally falling apart the cost of replacing older. Vehicles would be two hundred fifty million dollars in many areas of the border. The agents have no communications forget interoperability. We do not even have operability, and this is a real threat to agents safety. We estimate that we could dramatically increase border interoperability for one to twenty five million dollars. That's three hundred seventy five million dollars. Keep in mind when Trump talks about five billion dollars or some other number down the road when you total it all up. It's not just about a wall. And it's not some thirty foot wall of China. It's a whole security system and Judd was testifying about the communications elements and the vehicles they need which would be part of that budget and without those why have border security. They're all interactive there synergistic. He then noted by way of comparison. He's asking for three hundred seventy five million dollars for vehicles and communication equipment. He says back in two thousand sixteen the US government gave sandiego a border city, of course, on the American side with Tijuana on the other side, the US government gave San Diego more than one billion dollars to extend its trolley line. Well has nothing to do with border security and by the way, the national border patrol council. This labor union isn't some pro-trump partisan outfit. As a matter of fact, the union endorse Claire mccaskill a democrat from Missouri. Jon tester, a democrat from Montana, and Heidi Heitkamp and other democrat in the last election cycle, all Democrats in Judd's assessment three hundred miles of border fencing could make a big difference. So here's the question would Trump and his supporters accept a partial fencing? Of course, they will in the final analysis. You'll get there in stages could Democrats live with that. Well, they could. But they probably don't want to because of politics what they're hoping for is they'll slow play this and then in twenty twenty when a Democrats elected president and the Democrats have control of both houses of congress fell. They'll reverse this whole process and have far less borders. Security and much more amnesty for illegal immigrants and encourage many more across the border. So they can come here become citizens eventually in vote for Democrats now Wednesday when he was in Iraq Trump sounded like he could live with this partial fixed for now. Although he left the door open to building more miles of of wall later. This is what he said, listen, we have a lot of great wall going in in the most important places. We're starting in the most important places, which I would say history says fellas that's a good thing to do right through the most the most important places, I and do the least important places last. So Trump is a deal maker a lot of the talk is to provide leverage in positioning wiggle room for an ultimate deal that to reasonable parties would make. Republicans and Democrats the Democrats don't wanna be reasonable. They want Trump to be embarrassed for not even getting this partial wall. This is revenge. It's part of the resistance, and it's their re election strategy for two thousand twenty now when Trump does appear at some kind of a publicity event at the border to talk about this with Jim Geraghty recommends is he should let the border patrol officers and officials explain themselves what I've just read to you here with the national media watching. So what they see? And what they experience they'll tell about what they see and what they experience as they perform their duties. And if Trump's set set up that way, rather than just stand up there in bluster the country, if they're shown this maybe the liberal media would leave out that part of the the event, but if the country were to see this to understand not just the grandiose statements about let's build this impermeable wall.

Judge bars US from enforcing Trump asylum ban
"We actions are still coming in after a court ruling against the Trump administration. He was radio Timberg has the details. A federal judges ruled against the Trump administration's ban on asylum for immigrants read and Joe is the president of the national border patrol council. He explains what this ruling means what the judge just told them is go ahead and cross the border illegally instead of going through a port of entry, which is a legal process. The judge just encourage them to break our laws cross the border illegally. Drained border patrol resources because then we have to deploy resources to those areas to take them into custody. This is the wrong decision. It's the wrong message to send. And this is what is spurring these caravans to continue to come. As we see caravan stacking up upon caravan. It's it's very disappointing.

We continue with Jessica Vaughan, director of policy. Studies center for immigration Jonathan Gillam, Brandon Judd, Brandon, of course, president of the national border patrol council and Jonathan former FBI federal marshal. So we're expecting all these other people that are going to be coming. And if they go to a port of entry they're allowed to apply for asylum. Yes. What does that mean does that ultimately guarantee that however, many thousands estimates from seven to fifteen thousand people get asylum? It could mean that depends on how the department of homeland security is gonna view these cases in light of the fact that they've come a long way through Mexico and had the opportunity to apply for asylum. There. What happens is is that people have figured out that if you make it to US soil and say. That you have a fear of return that there's about a ninety percent chance that you're going to be allowed into the United States. But my understanding is always been that they have to apply for asylum in the first country. They arrive in that would be Mexico in this case, that's generally understood to be what's expected of people seeking safe haven. And I think that well Jeff Sessions give some guidance to asylum officers that they should consider that when getting moon reviewing these claims for asylum, but look what they want. They don't really wanna sign them. They want to get into the United States has the people that we let in who claim to fear of return will not even fill out the asylum application forms. Will not show up at their court hearing. And if they do it turns out that only about ten percent of them will be found qualified for Silom, but they just abscond from their proceedings, and they don't go home when removed by judge the idea is to get here get into the country, and they they know that employers can get away with hiring them, and they'll be able to live here almost indefinitely joining the larger illegal population, and as long as these policies the biggest wall is not going to stop these caravans.

Kirstin cinema is weak on border security, the national border patrol council is proud to endorse Martha mcsally for Senate. We know Martha has our back, and she'll do what it takes to secure the border Sally, and I approve this message and now back to the green line. We're back and they wanna talk about. Yeah. Pretensions than issue. We're having. Apprehension. Rio Grande valley sector chief Manuel Padilla says that the numbers have doubled for those crossing the border illegally. Over four thousand or four thousand arrests were made for the first week of this fiscal year compared to just over two thousand arrests being made on October of twenty seventeen they've doubled. Why do you think they've doubled because catch and release is still going on because there's no consequences for the individuals? That are breaking our immigration laws because the rhetoric alone that President Trump delivered. When he first took over office dropped the numbers and our leaders within the United States border patrol failed to act upon that window. That's what it comes down to why. Because this is what you have. You have all star team which is the border patrol agents to there. Then you have the managers in the coaches general manager all that. And then you have the owner. Which in this case, I will attribute the owner as being President Trump. So it works, right? So we are. Considered. I would say under new ownership. With all star players that need motivation. The need the proper bluffs, bats balls footwear. Uniforms. They need all that. The owner wants to give them to you. But the general manager who's been general manager for quite some time. Is feeding different information. Probably to the owner. Then you've got the coaches and the manager. Who are the same coaches and managers that were there before they just changed their position when turned into another manager and the other one is now the batting coach and just flip flopped. So where's the problem? In the managerial staff got all star players. I just said the all star players were the ones that were in line wanting this new owner, and they're happy with the new owner, President Trump. The issue has always been. The general manager and the and the manager of the coaches of the team. We're not going to change the game plan. If you have the same manager in the same general managers now, I'm not saying fire or higher positioned leaders. But give him another position somewhere else. I don't know. That's all I'm saying. I think we have good leaders within border patrol. I think a lot of them were going to be retiring here soon because it's time to retire. Then they're done, and they don't see any change. And I see it all the time with some of the leadership. I speak to it's going to be a scary next few years because we have. I don't know less than responsible or less than professional leaders that are going to be staying and they're going to be getting higher positions now. And then you still going to have the higher ups, which are running the organization that are still running it and they're doing a horrible job. So that's my rant on that. Because I think it's important that the. The regular citizen understands I'm not trying to attack because there's certain things I want to hold back on not because I'm scared to say it, but because I don't want the general public to think here's aren't just ranting and raving attacking his agency. I'm not taking my agency. We have fantastic agents. We have fantastic leaders. Unfortunately, many of the managers that are in this agency that are calling the shots and the bigger wig people in DC that are calling the shots or do a horrible job. At the expect the expense of the agents in at the expense of. Some of the leaders that actually want to be leaders. That's just the way it is. Yeah. You're seeing this crisis. You're seeing the amount of individuals that are coming into the United States. You're seeing it here in Arizona as I said more than fourteen hundred Central American illegals, primarily from Guatemala have been found travelling in large groups since August in remote areas in different parts of the desert in Arizona. I've been surprised to see the number of groups, you don't you think two three four maybe five people to the hundreds amazing one hundred people because there's no consequences any there's no consequence of getting caught getting released. So for our listeners who don't know what catch-and-release is. And I know we've explained but agents catch him they fingerprint him, they don't have any prior criminal history in the United States. Keep in mind. I don't have the database of their country. So I don't know if they committed crimes of their country, right? There's nowhere to house them. So you release them you make him pinky swear that they're short for an immigration court. That's it based on. I mean, there's more to the process, obviously. But that's an in a nutshell. That's what it is. No consequences. You know, they were talking. We were talking about the crisis. The Arizona issue the agency did site that at least eight years instances since August twentieth in which a group of more than a hundred undocumented aliens, usually including families and small children were found in areas of south west, Arizona. Now, I talked somebody sent me a message. I don't even know who it was. I get I get messages all the time and anonymous people, and there was a big group that they arrested and they all had the same phone number in their pocket. And so this I guess this guy is an uncle to over one hundred individuals. But they answered hey, do, you know, so and so you the younger. Yeah. Just what catch and release. It's obvious that it's a smuggling nation. It's just ridiculous, and they're laughing at our laws, and that's what upsets the heck out of me. You know? You see the amount of leagues that are coming through. You see them, you know, turning themselves in large groups. No, huge groups that are coming through their coming through Yuma. They're coming through our GPO grand valley. They're everywhere. You know, chief Anthony provides Nagata Huma did say, this is a humanitarian crisis that is impacting border security. Where the judge judges where the immigration judges on this. You know, why aren't they? At the border.

You can't even find parking at Tucson's station. But yet the judge has a parking spot, and he's never been there. Which is crazy. It's just you know, what I mean? It's just I don't understand how this thing gets run. And so this is affecting a lot of the agents. Yeah. And I'll tell you where where this is where there's a twist to it. You heard me say there's managers in reading leaders. That's just I guess, it's everywhere. But. And find out. I don't want to drop his name yet until I'm one hundred percent. Sure did happen. Right. But we had a leader at the two. Well, we had a manager at the at the Tucson station. Right. That ordered an agent to go handle a case, which he can do. That's why I'm not saying that's part of our job, right and managers. Yeah. Cases. Knowing full well that the case was going to go past his regular hours. I think it was like half an hour before the end of the shift right where twenty four hour operation. So he ordered this individual go do it. Now, this individual is got over twenty years in the patrol, she she is fantastic agent. She's done a lot horse patrol prosecutions. You name it. She's done it. So this manager orders her to go take the case. She does it because you know, what it is. But there's some history back there behind them to. And there's certainly history and during this manager Ray, so she's handling the case. It's goes into after her ten hours of work, right? There's some agents that are finishing off their own paperwork, their time and attendance sheet and stuff that they regularly do. So this manager is upset and he's got a couple guys with bullseyes on him that he wants to attack because there's the guys power hungry. That's what he is power hungry one of these power, hungry managers that you know, he he probably can't run anything, you know, on his personal life. So now, he decides to be a bully with agents, whatever. I don't know anything. I don't want to take his personal life. I don't like doing that. But you're over here. Trying to be a tough guy when you're not a tough guy. You're just a bully with something special on your caller. So you think about something? So now, you think you're running something the only thing you're running your mouth. Right. So he goes in there to this to the room where the agents are working and. He says. Hey, I want you guys to go ahead and. Help him. So he forces them knowing that he's not going to pay him overtime. But it's just gonna pay them calm time. And where I'm bothered is this leader is doing it. While he's wearing flip flops in shorts. Oh, well, you're not a leader. And the union their goals and spoke to the to the PAC of the Tucson station. And my understanding is the PAC's answer. Back was hey, he's in the right to do it. Yes. You're in the right to do certain things. But you're in of urine abusive bully that is doing things just to be a bully, and it's upsetting that this is happening and it's affecting border patrol agents there at the Tucson station. I wanted to get that out. I wanted people to understand that if it is not fixed. I'm not threatening. I'm not saying anything if I in fact, I just want to find out that all my ducks are in order, and I will be starting to name these people because civilians need to understand who these bullies are. And other people within the patrol need start, knowing the names of these particular bullies. I'm gonna go on break because I just got a text.
