    Not good news and looks to be part of the amnesty plan

    Closure of Border Patrol stations across four states triggers alarm | Fox News



    The Obama administration is moving to shut down nine Border Patrol stations across four states, triggering a backlash from local law enforcement, members of Congress and Border Patrol agents themselves.

    Critics of the move warn the closures will undercut efforts to intercept drug and human traffickers in well-traveled corridors north of the U.S.-Mexico border. Though the affected stations are scattered throughout northern and central Texas, and three other states, the coverage areas still see plenty of illegal immigrant activity -- one soon-to-be-shuttered station in Amarillo, Texas, is right in the middle of the I-40 corridor; another in Riverside, Calif., is outside Los Angeles.

    U.S. Customs and Border Protection says it's closing the stations in order to reassign agents to high-priority areas closer to the border.

    "These deactivations are consistent with the strategic goal of securing America's borders, and our objective of increasing and sustaining the certainty of arrest of those trying to enter our country illegally," CBP spokesman Bill Brooks said in a statement. "By redeploying and reallocating resources at or near the border, CBP will maximize the effectiveness of its enforcement mandate and align our investments with our mission."

    But at least one Border Patrol supervisor in Texas has called on local officers to "voice your concerns" to elected officials, warning that the "deactivation" will remove agents from the Texas Panhandle, among other places. Several members of Congress have asked Border Patrol Chief Michael Fisher to reconsider the plan. And local officials are getting worried about what will happen once the Border Patrol leaves town, since they rely on those federal officials to assist in making immigration arrests.

    "It could impact us tremendously since we've only got two agents up here now for 26 counties," Potter County Sheriff Brian Thomas told FoxNews.com.

    Potter County, in the Texas Panhandle, would be affected by the planned closure of the Amarillo station.

    Thomas said that while his area is far from the border, it's still a major "corridor" for illegal immigrants -- and he said his office depends on Border Patrol to respond to their calls.

    "I can't hold a carload of people out there on I-40 for eight hours while somebody comes from El Paso," he said. "I mean, that's just crazy."

    Border Patrol's resident agent in charge in Amarillo expressed similar worries, in a recent memo to local law enforcement alerting them to the planned closure. The official, Robert Green, warned that the "entire complement" of two agents would be reassigned from Amarillo to somewhere closer to the border. He said "there is no active plan" right now for Immigration and Customs Enforcement to fill the void on assisting local officials with stops.

    SUMMARY

    The following Border Patrol stations are set for closure:

    Texas: Lubbock, Amarillo, Dallas, San Angelo, Abilene and San Antonio.

    Idaho: Twin Falls

    Montana: Billings

    California: Riverside

    Empathizing with local officials, he wrote: "As a former deputy I found myself on the other end of the radio hoping to contact USBP to assist me with a vehicle full of undocumented foreign nationals on the side of the road."

    And in an unusual plea, he urged the recipients of his memo to contact elected officials about the change. "I would encourage you, if you have found USBP assistance valuable in the past, to contact your political representatives and voice your concerns," Green wrote.

    The letter was first posted online by the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal. Thomas confirmed to FoxNews.com that he received it. Bob Dane, communications director with the Federation for American Immigration Reform, also said he's confirmed the letter's authenticity with ICE.
    CBP later acknowledged the memo, but said in its statement that Green was expressing his "personal opinion."

    Lawmakers have started to get involved. Republican Rep. Mac Thornberry, who represents Amarillo, joined two other Texas lawmakers whose districts would be affected in asking the Border Patrol chief to "reconsider the proposal."

    A letter sent Tuesday to Fisher warned the plan would "leave our area vulnerable." They noted that the Amarillo and Lubbock stations alone, two of those affected, accounted for 638 apprehensions of illegal immigrants just this year.

    FAIR also blasted the Obama administration for the plans.

    "It's part of the systematic dismantling of both border and interior enforcement," Dane told FoxNews.com. "It complements the non-enforcement policy of this administration."

    He warned that local officials in those areas will have a hard time summoning far-away Border Patrol agents to assist, and said the tone of Green's memo was a "not-so-subtle shout-out" that the agency feels "outmanned, outgunned ... by their own government."

    The stations set for closure in about six months include six in Texas. They are in: Lubbock, Amarillo, Dallas, San Angelo, Abilene and San Antonio. The other three are in Billings, Mont.; Twin Falls, Idaho; and Riverside, Calif.

    Brooks said that the closures do not mean agents will be out of contact.

    "Though Border Patrol agents would no longer be located in these areas, the Border Patrol intends to maintain strong and meaningful law enforcement partnerships with Immigration and Customs Enforcement and local law enforcement agencies in these areas through continuing to actively share intelligence and information" and other avenues, he said.

    Detractors, though, say the changes are part of a pattern. The administration recently announced it would stop deporting young illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children and have not committed a serious crime. And after the Supreme Court upheld one plank of Arizona's controversial immigration enforcement law last month, federal officials said ICE would be selective in responding to calls about immigration status - prioritizing cases that meet certain criteria, like whether the suspect is wanted for a felony.

    Rep. Randy Neugebauer, R-Texas, who signed the Thornberry letter, also voiced concern about the latest announcement on station closings in a written statement.

    "The Department of Homeland Security hasn't demonstrated that sending additional resources to the border will be a more efficient use of resources than maintaining a presence further north," Neugebauer said. "I'd like to see numbers that reassure me that this strategy change won't ultimately result in fewer arrests."

    Yep O is ontop of it. Making sure he gets his voter base up before Nov. Just wait. RAM and Z will be here to tell us how O is the toughest on IM. Nothing but smoke and mirrors. And they are too stupid to see the reality of what this guy is all about.
    If you voted for Obama to prove you were not racist, then you better find someone else to vote for to prove your not stupid.

    Last night I am watching a program with the liberal pukes whining about how the voter registration laws in Texas, Florida, and Pennsylvania are such a hardship on the democrates in the state to get registered. How it was unfair to people of color. When asked about illegals registering he said there was no evidence that undocumented people were trying to register. As if to say that it is OK for documented immigrants to vote. Seriously, that was the morons additude. He never came out and said it, but the attitude is that LEGAL immingrant residence have the right to vote.

    Bye bye constitution. When the shit hits the fan, I sure hope these liberal anti Americans know why.

    Funny, I had to show my I.D. to get a new social security card. Same for those picking up their checks.
    I bet those same people have no problem showing their ID when they go to the liquor store either!!

    I laughed when the guy said that 750,000 people in Pennsylvania didn't have ID and that getting to a DMV or state office to get one was too much of a burden, as was the 5.00 they charge.

    I guess when you get your welfare check off a piece of plastic the need for an ID is no longer a problem.

    Still, it re-enforces what I have always said. If your on assistence, kiss off your vote. Because common sense says your going to vote to assure that check keeps on roll'n in. Ask zombie.

    I believe it is way past time for illegals and their spawn to go back where they came from. Secure the border and stop legal immigration and refugee BS too! We don't need anymore people right now. IMO, We simply need to be like most other nations and not tolerate illegals period......We have a major problem to straighten out. The sooner we start the better..... No benefits, no citizenship/voting ever, no dual citizenship, no military service, no employment, no education, nothing period. With no incentives they will self deport. After two years those that didn't self deport get detained and sent home.

    Do we have the national will to do this ? Nope, Never happen. Name one major politician who voices what I said ....for many reasons some kind of amnesty will happen soon.... !

    Perfect solution I agree. And on the no employment parts, put strong measures in place to deal with employers who continue the cheat the system hiring illegals who do not have work visas (a good work visa program I feel is necessary). I'm not against migrant workers coming here legally, just against them taking up permanent residence and claiming all the free shit Zombie mentioned above. Do the work, get paid, go home, legally. Repeat. (my test results left of center liberalness is showing)... ... Take the work away and they WILL self deport with their dependents, and if NO Work all but the criminals won't come back. Maybe put a few million of the 15-20% of American citizens back to work currently out of work.

    But no politician pandering for Mexican votes will touch the above.
