Administration Will Cut Border Patrol Deployed on U.S-Mexico Border

What can I say? I'm speechless. Unless you happen to be POTUS or FLOTUS or the veep or one of the other worthless cradle to grave representatives haunting the hallowed halls of injustice and have a plethora of Secret Service agents guarding you 24/7, your safety just became more endangered. A lot.

( - Even though the Border Patrol now reports that almost 1,300 miles of the U.S.-Mexico border is not under effective control, and the Department of Justice says that vast stretches of the border are “easily breached,” and the Government Accountability Office has revealed that three persons “linked to terrorism” and 530 aliens from “special interest countries” were intercepted at Border Patrol checkpoints last year, the administration is nonetheless now planning to decrease the number of Border Patrol agents deployed on the U.S.-Mexico border.

Border Patrol Director of Media Relations Lloyd Easterling confirmed this week--as I first reported in my column yesterday--that his agency is planning for a net decrease of 384 agents on the U.S.-Mexico border in fiscal 2010, which begins on October 1.

They can't be serious they are inviting and attack on this country. With all the drug cartel violence on the border they are going to decrease protection? No wonder Rick Perry sent the Texas Rangers to our border with Mexico.
