Obama administration cutting number of border patrol agents

CNS reports:

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. . . .

I'm shocked, I tell you!

Utterly stunned!

Why, why, that would mean more illiterate Mexicans coming across the border illegally. What would Obama and Company need them for?

This in contrast to my brother-in-law, who fell in love and married a lovely Brazilian lady with two doctorates. After almost two years of playing strictly by the rules, she may be able to enter our fair country legally next month.

At points, I suggested she fly to Mexico, buy a fake id, brush up on her Spanish, and walk across the border. She'd be given free medical care, for starters...
