It has been a few years since I’ve talked and, subsequently, interviewed former USBP Supervisor David J. Stoddard Ret.
In my opinion – and that of many others – there really is no better information source than Dave for what is currently transpiring at and on our Southern Border.David J. Stoddard BIOUS Border Patrol Supervisor David J Stoddard Ret was with the US Border Patrol for 27 years.
David served in Calexico, California, Vermont, Yuma, Tucson Sector Headquarters and Naco, Arizona and worked in Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico and other locations.Dave, also, provided testimony about immigration reform to Rep. F. James Sensenbrenner‘s R-WI House Subcommittee on Immigration and Claims in 1999 and a Congressional subcommittee on Criminal Justice,
Drug Policy and Human Resources in 2002.The InterviewSher: Dave, it’s been a long time since we last spoke about the problems on our Southern border; problems that have recently reached crisis if not catastrophe mode for all US citizens. Thanks so much for your time, today. It appears that thousands of illegal immigrants including the drug cartels, human traffickers, Latin gangs Islamists and even their ISIS members are crossing our border at will, now, due to Obama’s illegal open border policy.
Have you had Intel reports as to what’s really going on at what used to be our Southern border that you can share with the readers or been there, recently, yourself?Dave: I live on the Mexican border and I get reports from other border residents in addition to what I observe myself. My contacts are rural residents, ranchers, Border Patrol Agents, sheriff’s and visitors. I can tell you, without equivocation, that border enforcement has been curtailed to such a degree that it is practically non-existent. But the non-enforcement phenomenon is also all over the USA.Foreign national criminals have been released on the street after serving their sentences for major crimes.
The recent admission from the Obama administration is that 38,000 illegal aliens were released in America instead of being deported. If Obama broke to releasing 38,000, the real figure must be three times that number. The lame excuse offered by Obama’s minion is that the law requires the release of those criminals. It may very well be that some of those criminals were Cubans or other nationalities that won’t accept their ex-patriot criminals but apparently no effort is made to repatriate those scum.
John Kerry should be with-holding foreign aid, and taking other diplomatic measures to pressure those countries into accepting their citizens.
The criminals from the Western hemisphere should have been entered into deportation proceedings and held as flight risks. But, Obama has stated that deporting aliens makes no sense.The problem is not just with the Mexican border. The USA is importing Muslim……………
