"Off and on for almost five years mark morgan. Five years margin was director acting director of Cb and has forgotten more about this subject and most people will ever know including our vice president who refuses to go down and visit the border mark. How important is it. Just went with senator ted cruz. Couple of weeks back. And it is eye opening. And i've watched a lot of footage. How important is it to you in telling the story to get the vice president and the president to see this with their own eyes so that they can't look away. We we all this right i. I don't think you're gonna have the difference to know that when when america is faced with crisis it's critically important that our leadership is engaged in there and actually not only physically present let. Let's take if there's a hurricane or any other national disaster right. It's important a total you know. The the president trump appointed vice president pence to lead our efforts and he was there and seeing an out there and to me taking the american people. It's critically important that we have that leadership there and it means a lot and they're completely absent now here that i'll say though is the vice president Harassed you couldn't have picked a worse person to knowing as borders are and. I think they're actually getting that now. I mean she. She's the woman when she was senator accused ice of a referring to him as a. Kkk accused him of being racist when she was a california. She bragged about that. She prohibited a in california to work for federal authorities to remove criminal aliens. She wants to decriminalize illegal immigration. She wants to dismantle is and trade it so look going on. They couldn't have picked a worse individual to to be the borders to lead the effort. So unanswered glad. She's not there she's gonna take a crisis and just make it worse and continue quite frankly with a lot of the american people about it. But isn't that really by design what they wanted. I mean they didn't make a mistake. They accomplished exactly what they wanted. Which is somebody who doesn't share the values of most americans on this issue. I think you're absolutely right. You listeners really pay attention that. Because i think you're spot on You know just getting less but early on the few weeks. Hey they didn't have a strategy. They didn't know what they're doing. And i respectfully disagree. I agree with you there doing exactly as they intended to look. They want to treat reception centres on our border to facilitate and in released people as fast as humanly possible. They're they're encouraging incentivizing. Facilitating it on the back. Then they were moved ninety percent of isis interior enforcement authority to lawfully deport people. Raiding checks for countries Sanctuary country on the back end so make no sense from a sovereignty issue from a law and order national economic security issue only conclusion. You can draw on my thing. After thirty five years. They see a perceived political benefit. Then they're doing a jacket that the only should i say i think they let their ideology huber's Get in the way and they just absolute dismissed the experts at just how fast the numbers would come and the and and how quickly facility would be overcome that. That's the only thing that they really kinda got caught up mark. Morgan is our guest former commissioner of us customs and border protection across the obama administration and into later the trump administration. We talked about the bad guys. And this week we saw the to umaniets who were on the no fly list and the terror watch list Who were apprehended separately. We know that some large number of these individuals are doing this mark. What does that look like. How do they get to presumably. They're coming through mexico and not south america central america and increasing hike. But how how do they land on mexican shores and and get through they in touch with the cartels or what does that look like. To the extent we know goes really all the above right Like i said and they can come up through brazil panama and make their way up into the northern triangle countries to mexico sometimes because mexico Their customs laws are are are Less lessons compared to ours Sometimes they can't fly into mexico. directly And then make their way to mexico to our border so it's really a variety of reasons but this is important. This should really alarm people now. Look these individuals. We don't know a lot about these two individuals because they took down the information and of course. This white house has has failed to communicate of detailed information about these two and they should But but when would sure that were being accurate just because they're on the list i mean they're they're a known terrorist but they do at roussel suspicion that they're connected to territorialization activities. That is still extremely alarming. And it's even more alarming right now. Because as i mentioned before up to forty fifty percent border told resources are pulled off the line to deal with kids and families leaving white areas in the border open so individuals like this have a higher degree of getting past the border patrol. These are t. We caught the issue. We should be concerned about. How many are getting away when not catching. I spent some time with border patrol officers. While i was down with senator cruz and one of the things i did not realize but came to appreciate. Is these guys go through a rigorous training a six month program in artesia new mexico a six month program that they learn the law is physical. It's pt its weapons training. It's you know language training. I was really impressed. These guys are you know this is not just your average guy that you just hand a badge and gun. These guys have been really trained to be put there and they're dealing with some bad stuff on a day-to-day basis and a wide range of challenges. Look i. I'm proud of the the voter toll academy really all the time these across the board. But you're right when they come out. Everything you just said is the jackie right You know it's much more than just tactics and weapons. Although i think border trolls the the best the nation that some areas But but it's also the law. They get extensive classroom restriction on the law and how to apply the loss. Because there's new wants to on the on the border And so that's right when they get there and because the border here's here's a challenge that so much bandwith his taken on the unaccompanied meyer and families right but the vulnerable population. That people think that that's the only thing that's happening southwest border. It couldn't be far from the to the threats that we face. Our borders are complex and ever changing. I mean look like we talked about it in a minute. Though i mean you have gang members they they arrest or thousand. Gang members annually from twenty thirty different gains every single year pedophile. A other criminal aliens. We talked about the people that were on the terrorist database. Unless you know the drugs that are porn and killed sixty thousand people that look we can keep going on and on but the borders matter and there are a multitude of threats facing our country every single day. If you can hold with me for just a few more minutes will record during the break. I want to drill down on something talked about earlier. That i think is getting very little attention in. That was your reference to the fact that these individuals are coming in as quote seeking asylum when in fact asylum was a protected. Class of you know christians in iran sort of thing and instead you've got these individuals from poor countries who are really economic refugees seeking asylum protection. And that's an abuse of our system. I want talk about that real quick. And hold you just once more coming up. Martin morgan former commissioner of us customs and border protection..

Thanks for having me you were with the homeland Security secretary yesterday. El Paso on a bipartisan delegation of senators. Uh, no press, no cameras. DHS says that was for privacy. But does this just serve the skepticism that the government has something to hide? I think there's a way for DHS to allow some additional press access into these facilities at the same time. You know, these are kids, you know, six years old 12 years old, who are at the incredibly vulnerable point in their life, And so I certainly understand that there's a reason why you want to be careful about, um, giving press access to them at the same time. We've got to be possible to let reporters just walk around, not take any pictures, right? Yeah, No, I'm Emma's knows something that we should all press the administration to do better on.

It's pressing their resource is and right Now, these kids you're staying too long in detention centers were gonna work. I'm getting them. Additional resource is so that we can process these kids and get them in the J just care rather than the HSE care as quickly as possible. It zah real challenge right now along the border, we got do better. Well, according to NPR reports, hundreds of Children and teens have been held in detention centers for 10 days and longer and of course, by law is supposed to be just 72 hours. You're in charge of the appropriations Committee that over overseas homeland security. Is there any kind of motivation? You could give them if I might put it that way? Well, you know, the rise in Children coming to the border has happened so quickly that it has been difficult. Move them out of these detention facilities in under three days. Right now, as we speak, they're building new capacity to be able to house these Children and filling new slots in the HHS systems. So they are also trying to rebuild. A program of the Trump Administration ended in Central America to allow for kids to apply for asylum there. You know what Donald Trump did was essentially tear down the entire asylum system on so when you had this massive increase in Children coming to the border, first at the end of last year, continuing into the Biden administration It was very difficult for people to move these kids out of attention in that 72 hour period. So the vitamin station's been working very fast to try to rebuild the asylum system. To try to let these kids once again apply to stay in this country if their lives are truly in danger back home and Guatemala or Honduras. But they inherited an absolute mess. A wreck from the Trump administration. They're trying to do better as quickly they can. So they're going to be opening up new facilities for these kids throughout the southwest border in the coming weeks. Hopefully you'll be able to see these times go back down below 72 hours very quickly. They're doing the best. Well and what conditions look like for you in the minute we have left. Well, I mean, this is better than what we saw in 2019. You're not kids in, you know, so called cages. They're not being separated from their family at the border. But these are facilities. You wouldn't want your child in for more than 10 minutes there. Big open rooms. The kids air. You're sleeping on thin mattresses on the floor. There sort of bunched. You know about six inches to a foot from each other. We've got ultimately do better.

But I don't need to hear 30 years of law enforcement experience in this country. And what I can tell you is what I'm seeing in the city you just described. Is there absolutely putting politics above public safety. There is no other explanation. Again. Let's take Portland, for example. So you haven't a local leaders who are absolutely encouraging the violence there actually blaming the violence on the law enforcement presence there instead of the criminals and their doing nothing the again they're actually encouraging. I mean, there's a couple of easy things they could do. Like institute curfews. What a straightforward, simple example they could do because we know these individual every night. About 10 11 o'clock. That's what you're doing, and they're staying out till four in the morning. They've actually sounds actually gone further. He the mayor, there has actually kicked federal law enforcement out of the law enforcement Local command center. The City Council passed resolution that forbids them to share any information intelligence with federal agents that were there that could jeopardize their lives it I want it. I want to pick this up on the other side we have with us. U. S Customs Border Protection Commissioner Mark Morgan is with us his group are standing by ready and helping restore safety and security, especially federal buildings. All across the country that they're now under fire and threats to be burned to the ground, etcetera. I want to get his take on what he thinks of the comments of the vice of former Vice President Biden, presidential candidate Biden..

"I'm Joshua Johnson subscribe to one a on N._p._R.. As we consider the future of gaming so in a related note president trump promised to hire five thousand new agents and apparently he hasn't delivered on that not only has he not delivered on the five thousand new agents. The Border Patrol is so beleaguered that it has actually we lost two thousand agents from its peak under the Obama Administration <hes> and is continuing to lose a couple dozen agents every pay period right now and this is <hes>. This is a huge frustration to agents as they find you know they're already overworked workforce even more overworked <hes> and it's also <hes> you know trump has failed to deliver on what they thought were even the most basic promises that he made them during the campaign when they became the first union to back him in the presidential campaign where the border patrol remains uniquely underpaid as a federal federal law enforcement agency and has <hes> because of a quirk in the federal pay regulations <hes> uniquely <hes> poor overtime pay for border patrol agents and that the overtime pay reform was actually the highest priority of the Border Patrol Union when they were backing trump and trump has failed to fix that <hes> at all in your estimation how much of the humanitarian crisis at the southern. The border as a result of the large numbers of people crossing over from Mexico and how much of a is a function of bad management and and policies that you describe as cruel. I think it's impossible to separate the two <hes> the sheer numbers would be a crisis even in a will run agency <hes> but the the unique of cruelty of the trump administration's policies has exacerbated at the <hes> the general dysfunction in the trump administration in terms of leadership. <hes> see V._p.. is now on its third into acting commissioner just in three years of the trump administration and the acting D._A.. Secretaries actually the person who's supposed to be serving as the Senate confirmed C._B.. P Commissioner but there's no one else <hes> you you know leading V._H._S.. <hes> after the purge <hes> of Kirstin Nielsen <hes> and her deputy earlier this spring so this is an agency that is effectively rudderless at a time when it it is facing what is probably the greatest crisis of its sixteen year existence <hes> you know it's it's worth noting really that across V._H._S.. There is not a single <hes> permanent Senate Senate confirmed leader in any of the jobs leading our immigration or border protection. Is that intentional it seems sometimes that trump likes to have people who aren't permanent and don't need to be confirmed by the Senate Yeah so Donald Trump has made clear that he likes these temporary officials because they provide what he says is quote flexibility for him. <hes> what's also true in this case. Is that it within within D._H._S.. He is appointing temporary acting officials <hes> who are so controversial and so disliked <hes> that they would be unlikely to actually be able to win Senate Senate confirmation themselves <hes> but that limits their authority it limits their ability to lead their organizations and it just exacerbates this revolving door of leaders <hes> across V._H._S.. You've described the southern border in the Rio Grande Valley area as having a thriving border protection industry. Would you describe the industry for all that we hear about the need to increase border spending the need to build this big expensive wall the length of the border. Most people don't realize actually just how large of an industry border protection already is <hes> we spend more already <music> on border and immigration protection than the combined budget of the F._B._i.. A._T._F. The U._S. marshals the secret service and the entire budget of the N._y._p._d.. <hes> so this is a massive spending program already and when you go down into the these towns and cities along the border what you actually see is that border security is in some ways one of the biggest employers already <hes> and that we have deployed this relatively new army of Border Patrol agents <hes> along the southern border and invested in an incredible amount of militarization Russian and high-technology that includes unarmed Predator drones and even <hes> what are known as Arrow stats effectively blimps that patrol the southern border that have been brought back after service in Afghanistan Garrett graph.

"Let's get back to my interview with journalist Garrett Graph. He's a former editor at politico and has written extensively for politico about the migrant crisis on the southern border and dysfunction in the U._S.. Border Patrol his new article and political magazine is is titled The Border Patrol Hits Breaking Point when we left off we were talking about the terrible conditions in migrant detention centers on the southern border in the Rio Grande Valley with a majority of migrants from the Central American countries Guatemala El Salvador Vidor and Honduras crossover into the U._S.. Is it your impression that president trump wants the conditions to be bad as a deterrent to other migrants or do you think this is just kind of inadvertent an inadvertent crisis cages. I think that this is a very carefully designed crisis by the trump administration I think I it seems clear from everything that we have seen over the last three years that the the cruelty at the border is the point of the trump administration's policy. What's the point of being cruel it plays to <hes> what trump sees his base <hes> he was elected on this platform form of getting tough on immigration and <hes> I think he thinks that it also <hes> discourages people from trying to make the journey in the first place <hes> but I we now have years of evidence that that's that's not the case and in fact in in many ways? It seems like the border patrol policies along the border are <hes> actually doing more to hurt the situation than to discourage it <hes> and I you you know I think at its most basic level the border patrol and see V._p.. Is failing to meet its moral human obligation to these people showing up at our border seeking American can help and protection <hes>. It's worth noting that there have been twelve migrants who have died in C._B.. P custody since September <hes> and in the decade prior fire to September not a single migrant had died in C._B.. Custody I mean something radical has changed in the way that border patrol and C._B.. Is fulfilling its mission and it's leaving these migrants in deadly. Jeopardy I'm wondering I don't know if you can answer this. If <hes> many border patrol agents are turning against president trump because of this humanitarian crisis at the border or whether they're blaming Obama for I think that they are becoming more and more disaffected by Donald Trump <hes> I had one <hes> in this article this week had a former border patrol union official say to me quote trump is is not delivering <hes> and I don't know whether that I I don't know whether I could go as far to say that agents are turning against the president but they are certainly feeling let down by the promises that he made and has been unable able to deliver on so a lot of the children who were seeing in cages now not all of them but a lot of them came across the border unaccompanied by an adult but you're right that that used to be a much bigger issue you then it is now that there's fewer children crossing the border on their own now than there were back during the Obama administration and yet now we see all these cages of children that we had never seen before exactly a and that is a a major impact of the trump administration is on how children are treated as they crossed the border <hes> during the Obama administration you saw what they call this U._A._C.. Crisis the unaccompanied accompanied minors children crossing by themselves fleeing Central American gang violence and drug violence and once those children crossed they were <hes> ah turned themselves into the border patrol they were processed as asylum seekers and then for the most part handed off to family members inside the United States and when I was down at the border you would see these children crossing <hes> you know with a <music> a telephone number you know written on their arm or carrying a telephone number for let's say an aunt in Chicago. <hes> you know or cousin in a Texas that they should call to arrange transportation to stay with and that was a very routine part of this crisis during the Obama years for the last couple of years though what we're seeing today and what has garnered the headlines under the trump administration are what at the Border Patrol N._C.. B._P. calls family units so this is sort of whole families crossing together. <hes> you know you see the these news reports about these migrant caravans coming up together and attempting to cross the border <hes> you know parents and children <hes> sometimes even grandparents uncles cousins etc all as one unit and there are very strict court regulations about how long children can be detained inside <hes> the U._S. and so what the trump administration has begun doing and this was the their child separation policy that garnered <hes> so much controversy last summer was is to begin to basically break apart those families and hold onto the adult hold onto the parents and let the children go off into their own separate process and the record keeping was so poor for during the height of that process that the government now admits that hundreds of children are likely permanently orphaned because the government has no ability to reconstruct who they he crossed with and who their parents are. How do we allow that to happen? I I think it is one of the single greatest scandals of the trump administration and I it's certainly one of the most inhumane humane things that I can think of America doing in modern history this leads to another issue that you bring up which is that customs and Border Protection. You know they have a lot of armed agents and their qualifications vacations are to do like <hes> catch catch terrorists and catch drug smugglers a lot of the work that needs to be done at the border is administrative and <hes> you make it seem like they need more administrative staff as opposed to like more agents who know how to use weapons it yeah and this is a twofold problem right so on the one hand these agents <hes> highly trained armed <hes> law enforcement officers officers are now spending a lot of their days <hes> sitting in these detention facilities processing migrants <hes> you know shuttling people back and forth to hospital care <hes> helping to feed children you know go out into the local will store and buy more toilet paper and really serving as humanitarian rescue workers <hes> in a way that they don't really need to be armed law enforcement to do <hes> Gill Curl Accounts Hausky who was the C. P. Commissioner during the final two years of the Obama Administration and oversaw what is really the sole period of real reform and progress culturally within C. v. p. over over the last decade <hes> he told me in this piece this week that he thinks it's worth reconsidering whether C._B.. P should reinvent its workforce and add a civilian administrative humanitarian humanitarian wing to its employees so that those are the people who are helping to process <hes> and work on these asylum-seeking migrant cases the second prong of this problem is that <hes> you have these armed law enforcement officers simultaneously not doing the work that they actually are supposed to be doing which is trying to break up an interdict drug smuggling and human trafficking organizations across the Southern Border <hes> busy processing p. e. exactly <hes> and that and that the drug cartels no this and take advantage of this that these asylum-seeking migrants could legally just walk walk up to one of the official ports of entry and ask for asylum and instead the cartels which control these sort of migrant <hes> channels up to the border <hes> send send them in between the official ports of entry where they run into the border patrol and not the official ports of entry where they would see the so-called office a field operations the blue uniformed agents and so the drug cartels no if you send a group of twenty thirty one hundred two hundred asylum seekers across in the middle of the Rio Grande Border Sector <hes> then you're gonna tie up <hes> you know most of the shift of the Border Patrol agents for that period of time to help process those migrants and allow it to be easier for you as the cartel to smuggle the drugs and <hes> the human smuggling trafficking that you WanNa do elsewhere <hes> you know you're basically sort of forcing the border patrol to surge its resources to deal with <hes> what the border patrol calls the give ups while freeing up the rest of the border for what the Border Patrol would call the runaways the people who are actively trying to smuggle themselves inside the United States because they're carrying drugs or they're criminals <hes> trying to get into the United States. Do I understand correctly or are you saying that the drug cartels are intentionally sending people over the border in the Rio Grande Valley to divert attention from the drug smuggler of who are smuggling drugs in other areas orient exactly <hes> and that's something that the the Border Patrol has recognized for years and it's part of why they are so frustrated <hes> with this current situation in crisis at the border because they they do see the humanitarian crisis of these flood of migrants as also spawning a security crisis because it's tying up their resources from actively fighting the drug smuggling in human trafficking that is continuing along the southern border. So are you saying that the drug smugglers are actually working in conjunction with the people who smuggle people across the border or that the drug smugglers are intentionally recruiting people and sending them across the board like what is their role yet in cross as decoys <hes> so the drug cartels control both the narcotics smuggling and the human trafficking <hes> along the southern border on the Mexican Mexican side and so if you are someone's even seeking safe passage through that region <hes> more often than not you end up in the hands of <hes> of cartel smuggling totaling operation just to to pass through the Mexican district to get to the border in the first place the me reintroduce you here if you're just joining us.

He's also contributing writer with wired. He's written several books including one about the F._B._I.. Under Robert Muller Garrett graph welcome back to fresh air. Thanks so much for having me you call customs and Border Protection America's most most troubled law enforcement agency what makes a qualified for that dubious distinction customs and border protection is the nation's largest law enforcement agency with forty five thousand gun carrying officers in agents larger than the N._y._p._d.. It's larger than the Coast Guard and yet at the same time it has been racked by what is now really more than a decade of an epidemic of crime in corruption and mismanagement that is unparalleled in American policing from two thousand five to twenty twelve there was one C._b.. P officer or agent arrested every single day and even today there's an officer or agent arrested for misconduct or violence <hes> drug smuggling even murder <hes> every thirty six hours and then canoe development that was discovered is there's a facebook group loop of Border Protection agents with approximately nine thousand five hundred members in which agents have made racist and misogynist comments on the chief of the Border Patrol has been part of that group. What kinds of comments have he read these posts yeah and this this is the latest example of what has been very <hes> long running and actually well-known insular racist misogynistic culture that has pervaded the work of the Border Patrol and see V._p.? Really since its founding in two thousand three <hes> the agents officers have routinely use misogynistic mistaken racist terms to even refer to the people that they are detaining on the border the people that they are entrusted with keeping safe and rescuing and detaining that <hes> in probably the most I agree GIS example <hes> it's been shown in court that agents actually referred to people caught crossing the border as talks which is a phrase that agents will tell you it derives lives from the sound that comes from when you hit one of them over the head with your flashlight and there's also a new commemorative coin that was issued that I think is supposed to be satirical. Would you describe add the coin yeah. This is <hes> a commemorative challenge coin <hes> which is a series of coins <hes> that you see a lot of government agencies <hes> in law enforcement in the military and the intelligence community trade around to honor individual units individual operations <hes> task forces and the like and this commemorative coin <hes> which is unofficial was circulating inside tied the Border Patrol and it appears to commemorate <hes> this was uncovered by Propublica what the agents trading the coin called the new patrol <hes> which is lamenting how these agents who signed up to fight terrorists and drug cartels are actually spending their days now effectively working as humanitarian relief workers along the southern border processing asylum seekers from the northern triangle countries in Central America America Honduras El Salvador and Guatemala. Let me read how the corn was described in Propublica article on one side it says keep the caravans coming and there's an image of a massive parade of people carrying a Honduran flag the other side features the border patrol logo and three illustrations of border patrol agent bottle feeding and infant an agent fingerprinting a teenage boy wearing a backwards baseball cap and U._S.. Border Patrol van the text taxed on that side reads feeding Processing Hospital Transport so this is not the job the agents signed up for apparently that's part of the problem that you see at the border patrol all the mismatch between with the agents thought they were signing up for and what the job is actually turned out to be. Would you talk about that a little bit yeah so in this really goes back to the founding of C._B.. p. and the creation of the Department of Homeland Security in two thousand three three which it's hard to remember today just how poorly policed and secured our borders were before nine eleven <hes> the border patrols own studies showed at the time that the border patrol did not have operational control control over ninety seven percent of the border and so after nine eleven what you saw was this flood of new money coming in to see B._p.. And in the space of just a couple of years the border patrol actually went out in doubled in size <hes> peaking in the early Obama years at about twenty one thousand agents and what that recruiting effort really aimed at was trying to create this elite counter-terrorism arisen force and if you actually even today look at C. B.. P.'s website <hes> catching terrorists and stopping terrorists weapons is still the first thing that they show on their about page and what they list list as a typical duty for C._B.. P officer or border patrol agent and so this massive new influx of agents was recruited using <hes> these recruiting campaigns made this look like <hes> you know effectively a New Frontier Cavalry <hes> lots of Great Toys A._T._V.'s helicopters <hes> horseback <hes> patrols and then lots lots and lots of weapons and that what these agents joined to do was fight terrorists and fight drug cartels fight drug smugglers and that is not what most of the border patrol ends up doing most of the time now for the last six years they have been <hes> dealing with this human flood of asylum-seekers along the border who are not trying to run away from the Border Patrol. They're actually trying to turn themselves elves in and I said in the peace the problem one of the major problems facing the border patrol today is that it went out and built its ranks by recruiting Rambo when it actually turns out the Border Patrol needs is mother Teresa so this gets to <hes> like another issue in terms of the hiring <hes> of people in customs and Border Protection so the agency is created created in two thousand four after nine eleven. There's a big influx of money as you just said and a lot of people are hired as agents but because they're such a rush to hire people and so much money to hire them quickly. The vetting thing was not very good. What are some of the problems that we now know see B._p.? Run into in terms of vetting and hiring agents the problem of rapid growth in any law enforcement agency is actually well known and documented <hes> any police agency that tries to grow too quickly runs into integrity problems the agency actually lowered its recruiting standards it lowered its training standards it sent agents out into the field without conducting adequate background checks before they were hired and under that surge of new employees basically the management management processes the integrity processes the supervisors couldn't keep up and the agency was flooded with people who should have never been given a gun in a badge by the U._S.. Government <hes> <hes> as as we discussed there were numerous arrests an epidemic of crime and corruption that hit C._B.. P <hes> one former C. B. P. Commissioner actually told me <hes> on the record that they made mistakes and in fact hired cartel members and that what you began to see by late two thousand nine <hes> running through twenty fourteen was <hes> both a huge rise in on the job excessive massive forced complaints <hes> shootings that fell far outside the protocols for modern policing and also this incredible wave of crime and corruption of agents <music> <hes> participating in drug smuggling and human trafficking themselves <hes> of taking bribes of looking past illegal immigrants crossing through their checkpoints <hes> I got so bad ad that by twenty thirteen actually <hes> The D._H._S. officer who was in charge of investigating misconduct in the Rio Grande Valley in Texas felt that he fell so far behind. Signed in investigating C._B.. Misconduct that he began falsifying records and was indicted himself so president trump has added new problems on the southern border but in terms of of border patrol there were plenty of pre existing problems in actually the president trump has not helped he's actually exacerbated some of these problems. <hes> the Border Patrol really the thought that Donald Trump was going to be the golden years for the agency. <hes> the first time that Donald Trump actually wore his make America great hat it was to visit this southern border alongside alongside the Border Patrol Union <hes> tour it to build the wall that are to talk about building the wall that became a cornerstone of his platform and Donald Trump <hes> actually won the first endorsement ever by the Border Patrol Office Agent Union that <hes> became the first union in America toback him and they have these grand plans that <hes> Donald Donald Trump was going to build the wall and grow the agency and help it <hes> become what everyone wanted it to be <hes> and I in fact Donald Trump has not delivered on that that actually while he signed an executive order calling for five thousand new Border Patrol Agents <hes> the agency today is actually smaller than it was under Barack Obama. It's lost nearly two thousand agents so far and is losing about twenty-five agents the pay period right now because of how challenging the job is and how poorly it pays so you've done a couple of other long pieces for political about border patrol including one in two thousand sixteen in which you went to the Rio uh-huh Grand Valley to see for yourself what was happening at the border they are and I'd like to compare what you saw with. What's happening now? <hes> three years later but I described the importance of the Rio Grande Valley in the larger story a of the southern border and migration the Rio Grande Valley <hes> centered around mcallen Texas is really the center of this migrant crisis <hes> in has been a frankly for or five or six years now <hes> what we're seeing on the southern border is different in scale but not by much <hes> from what we've actually been experiencing along the southern border <hes> really since two thousand thirteen in two thousand fourteen and the Rio Grande Valley is the epicenter of that largely because it is the point in Mexico closest to the Central American countries where people are fleeing this gang violence Jason Drug violence and so they <hes> walk up they ride the train they in some way cross through Mexico and the first place that they come to is the Rio Grande Valley and it's not uncommon and has not been uncommon for years to see hundreds of people <hes> and now in the most recent iteration sometimes thousands of people a day crossing the border along the Rio Grande Valley and this sector of the Border Patrol. All is the largest in the country. It has about thirty two hundred agents whose responsibility is just this one section of the border and what makes it so interesting in so complex is the border patrol in many ways is an agency geared to lying in wait <hes> for smugglers or human traffickers and then cheats them <hes> expecting what the patrol calls runaways rather rather than give ups and yet for most of these last five or six years what the border patrol has been experiencing on a daily basis are these give ups these families crossing these children crossing and seeking hanging out actually border patrol agents that they they're trying to find the first person on the side of the border that they can surrender to <hes> and as you mentioned I went down to the border the week before the 2016 a Republican Alikhan National Convention where Donald Trump was going to be crowned the nominee to look at the reality of his plan to implement a wall and you know that night that I was out with the Border Patrol <hes> you know three years ago really at this point we caught. I believe it was thirty seven migrants in less than thirty minutes <hes> seven different groups of people that we ran across and that that these were people desperate to find a border patrol agent I mean they would have surrendered to me. Happily as a white guy in Khakis along the border <hes> because what they were doing was they were coming here to apply for asylum and that <hes> that's a legal right that they have <hes> and they were trying to start that process as quickly as they could when they got across the border so you also right that <hes> people know oh the drill they had their papers ready to show to the border patrol agents they had family members they would wait with while awaiting a hearing on their asylum status..

"Really disgusting stuff said that you've written about yeah it's a great question we honestly cannot say how many of these people are current border patrol how many are former 'em we think there may be some members of the public in there as well but what we know is that it's a closed secret group that you had to be invited into by somebody who is in the border patrol or another a customs and border protection unit and that the people are all discussing the work of customs and border protection it also seem like people put on an awful lot of time into creating being a mock the photo shopped a pitch just there were seen you know there were opposed in indy article that you mentioned a about about be the father and daughter whose bodies of who drowned trend across across the rio grande in the posts attached that picture and it reads okay i'm gonna go ahead and ask heavy all ever seen floaters this clean i'm not trying to be un ads but i've never seen floaters like this could this be another edited photo we've all seen the dams and liberal parties do some pretty sick things but what is the response within this group to someone posting you know this about a a dead father in his dead child at calling them floaters suggesting that this is some sort of plot by democrats perhaps you know what we saw in the messages that we've obtained is repeatedly members this group dehumanizing migrants and dehumanizing migrants who have died in different cases so we've seen a different comments where people are saying you know basically very disparaging things about migrants who've died migrants upper example were about to publish a story where there is a a man trying to bury his a son across cross the river in a plastic bag a this is a photo that's in one of the post an m one of the people who comments on it says oh well at least he's already in a trash bag suggesting that the child is trash so that's the kind of stuff that we see and those posts in addition to the post that we mentioned earlier about the visit to the detention center by members of the congressional hispanic caucus i understand there were other posts about that visit m or did they say yeah there's post about visit the better saying you know really disparaging things about a representative a cossio cortez there are things in there saying hey we should start a go fund me campaign for somebody to throw a burrito at these women using an expletive there's somebody using more vulgar term to describe women who he believes the border patrol supervisor so there's all that kind of discussion you know interestingly also there's so there's a thread where people are saying hey i wonder if they're gonna clean up this facility and basically spit shine it like they did at some of these other facilities before cameras came in and give a fake view of what's going on so that was also articulated in the playoffs the border patrol has big problem with recruiting people retaining people 'em it's incredible to me that whoever you know there's ninety five hundred people in this an invite only face vocalist the idea that they thought this ultimately would not become public is kind of stunning to me yeah exactly right like look we all know there's lots of totally upstanding members of the border patrol on an all other law enforcement forcement agencies but he is concerning the you have a group that big and there's that kind of vulgar stop being passed around on it and that nobody says the management as far as we can tell hey this is outrageous this is total misconduct even if it's happening off of a work time and something should be done about it in you've reached out obviously the customs and border a gorgeous border control for for comment what did they said yeah so what we what we heard from them today is that they are opening an investigation into this matter what they've told us is that this type of behavior online breaches their code of conduct that they have referred the matter to the fee homeland security inspector general but anderson i should also say a after we contacted them we got more images from this group a and these were particularly homophobic images.

We don't have any way to promptly return people back to their home country. We have always proudly proudly welcomed millions of lawful immigrants. To enrich our society into contribute to our nation. But everybody is hurt by uncontrolled illegal immigration. It's strains public resources. It drives our jobs down at drives wages down and the hardest. Hit are African Americans. And Hispanic Americans are southern border is a pipeline for vast quantities of illegal drugs, including meth and heroin and cocaine and Fenton all and every single week in this country, three hundred Americans die from heroin, alone and ninety percent of heroin flow. The floods across our southern border. More Americans will die from drugs. This year. Then died in the entire Vietnam war. Shouldn't we try to do something different? In the last two years ice officers made two hundred sixty six thousand arrests of aliens with criminal records, including those charged or convicted of a hundred thousand assaults thirty thousand sex crimes four thousand violent killings, including beheadings rape. Over the years, thousands of Americans have been brutally killed by those who have come into our country illegally and thousands more will lose their life. If we don't act, this is a humanitarian crisis. This is a crisis of the heart. This is a crisis of the soul. Everyone loses. That was coming from the president's speech last night. The those things are accurate. Did they fall on deaf ears all across the country? Do we not care about the real victims? Here the victims that are on both sides of the border. When the when the president spoke about the murders. The illegal alien they came across the border the life of an American hero stolen by someone who had didn't have the right to even be in our country in California. An air force veteran was raped murdered. And then beaten to death with a hammer. This is not just a veteran. This was someone's daughter beaten to death. By a hammer. In the hands of an illegal alien with a long criminal history. And now the Democrats in California are saying we're going to welcome everyone in. We want to welcome those people into our country that have a reason to be here, and that we want here and that they want to be here not to rape and kill us. But to make us better. The president had everything he needed. He had all of the facts. He had the story. But I don't think it was effective. He's not a good storyteller. But it wasn't effective.

"And now, we return to guest host Todd, Herman Ave. IB network. Thanks for having me. Appreciate it's very very much. Social media responses amazing thing the call from south Padre, Texas is near the whitest part of the Rio Grande river US border. That would make it hard to sneak into I live in Amarillo, Texas. I'm just as close to the border as the moron in south Padre island. Dude is full of blank blank blank. Dan from San Padre island was on his own. He's typical the liberal refuses to see the reality of what's happening. Our school systems are overcrowded our property taxes are through the roof to pay for educating legals are ers are overcrowded spitting out anchor babies that we do not have to do not have insurance to pay for. Yes, I live in Texas as well. So kind of struck a nerve it can be really depressing or it can potentially. Depress. You to think, you know, what the Democrats are willing to do anything. But it should be the reverse that should propel you we're great big laboratory out here, Portland. San Francisco Seattle, Los Angeles. And there's two things I wanna make you aware that are coming your way. It's vital that you understand what the left is willing to do to examples and these happen to be from Washington safe that same sort of things one in California. It's such an Oregon Mike Bloomberg paid for an illegal ballot initiative. And when I tell you a legal, I'm telling you it violated our state law. Very very clearly. In fact, the initiative didn't have even the language of the proposed law on it didn't have it. And. Are leftist court allowed that the past. Here's what it's going to do. And Bloomberg says, this is a model for the country. If you're a gun owner the intend to make you lock your gun up when it's not on your person. See you you sleep with a firearm next to you, not more oh in how do they enforce that? Well, if your gun is ever stolen and used in a crime, you become criminally liable, and civilly liable ten grand out of your pocket on the first time someone steals from you. That'll never be applied to someone stealing your car. But someone steals your gun. You are out ten grand if it's used in a crime, and you can be criminally liable. If someone steals your gun not. So if someone steals your car, they're willing to go that far. Now that is going to the supreme court eventually the NRA second amendment foundation is suing on that. Here's another. We have a guy here who's the most dangerous man in west coast politics on the attorney general our state, we call him sideshow. Bob, he is suing a political activists your name, Tim Ireland. Those names don't matter to you in this. Okay. Here's the dynamic. He announced in advance. He would not settle the suit our state settled with the green river killer. That's a serial killer. Kate. You know, what they're demanding in the suit. Is it Tim? I'm in give up his right to be involved in politics units. They're doing they're going after his donors. This is coming your direction. George Soros bought attorneys general for a reason. Now, we in the great left coast. You know, laboratory of leftism we can warn you. So is out on your AG racism is on your guns. It is open line Friday, Danny from Louisville Kentucky, you're on the Rush Limbaugh program. Todd Herman filling in Hello, Danny. Hello todd. I hope things are well with you nears. And all the folks there e Abby. Just to let you know that. This shutdown is severely detrimental to national security and to our commerce met nonessential personnel. That's a misnomer may give you an example, US customs and border protection. They've been you know, they've been in the news here a bit. You've got two guys in the green uniforms sport or patrol. You got the guys in the blue uniforms, that's US customs and border protection. When shipments come in there's millions and millions. I don't remember the exact number. You know, I've been Richard years now. So this is these guys are being harmed by the shutdown. Say give them sorry. They're being harmed by the shutdown. How so. No, I'm saying our country is harmed by it. And these are all these shipments coming in you've got millions and millions and millions of shipments. That's. You know, most of them are legitimate summer. Not there's depending on what the shipment is. And like I say there's millions and millions and millions and millions of them. There's ten pages worth of paperwork. With each ship. Some has to be, you know, put into the computer that I see. So you're talking about the you're you're you're talking. I if I understand this, right? Danny what you're saying. Is that these people who process this paperwork? They're not getting paychecks air, therefore, not working. So I can see how that would be considered essential. And I want to thank you for the call, Dan. I that I can see how you would call that. Essential. And I don't mean to say that you're not essential human beings. I don't mean to say that it all, Dan. And I hope I didn't offend you. So let me just ask this question globally, Danny because I think this is important for people to think about why is the federal government doing that port. At that port resides in your state. Why is it the federal government? See this is the great shell game of federal monies? You in your state of Kentucky, send money to the federal government. They pay themselves. I they pay for their pensions. They pay for their retirement, the silver dollar you sent in has become a twenty cents. So then they borrow bunch of money from US bondholders in China. Then they send you that money back with a bunch of rules, and they send a bunch of employees to your state. It is the least efficient model in the world. So I don't mean to say that it's not essential that we check shipments coming into our country. Danny that's a good point. It is essential that how about if we do that in economically sensible way, not by sending a dollar from Kentucky to DC having them cut it down by seventy five percent borrow money and send back your money, which now contains debt from China. That's all I'm saying will from Chanel Minnesota, you're on the Rush Limbaugh program taught Herman filling in high there will. God, I'm gonna give you megadose. Wow. It's only subtitles because for a guest. So this should only get subtitles. But appreciate that. Well, thank you. Well, let me let me pose a premise to the point. I'm gonna make the premises. With impeachment and efforts to try to get rid of Trump, including the Mueller investigation until they have to choose between self-preservation and Trump hatred. Self-preservation? I would contend is what will cause them to reconsider everything and get rid of the Mueller investigation. And let me explain how this will happen. Trump were to come out and say, it is very clear that Mueller is going to be investigating campaign finance investigation, and my personal finances. Fine. What's fair is fair. This is obviously a political investigation fine. I'm going to appoint a special prosecutor to look at every single member of Congress, Republican and democrat. Oh, wait. No, I'm sorry. I'm going to pardon all the Republicans because this is a blatant political act special prosecutor to look into every democrat in the last congress, the congress before that, and this congress we're going to look at exactly why it is that they are able to obtain massive personal wealth while on a government salary. We're going to look at their family investments and see if they are benefiting from sitting on one committee or another we're going to look at their scholarships their packs and people we're going to appoint special prosecutors to clean all. Politicians up. So what you're saying? Yeah. Go ahead. The only way that I'm going to let this stop is if congress votes in the Democrats must vote unanimously. And that's a condition of meat removing the special prosecutor to vote unanimously to end special prosecutor legislation or the statute and newer cannot issue any kind of report or anything period. You have a choice complete investigation and complete opening of your closet. Or we we have no more of this political investigations. Oh, by the way, we're going to investigate all the state attorney generals who are also going to look at investigating politicians gonna make sure that they are clean to. Okay. I got I got what you're saying. I got what you're saying. Well, and and I hear you at now, let me just present a is something to you. Do we want this done to us because when the ends justify the means means just become the new ends. I don't want that done. I don't want John Doe investigations. I don't want seeking out of crime. I do want. What you describe how did they make this money? And I think I know how do they amass this wealth? And I think they know that's not yet the job for a special prosecutor until there is an an accusation of a crime. That's credible. It is the job of conservative donors to create a massive massive opposition research machine to go document this read books like the town this town at cetera that's a starter kit. The. The truth is out there. X-files wise. It's not that hard to do. Now. Why don't they do it? Because there's a rule in DC. If you don't tell a tale and how I'm getting rich serving in congress. I won't tell the tale and how you do it. It's a protection scheme will thanks for the phone. Call start Herman filling in for Rush Limbaugh on the EIB network. You're listening to the network nine.
