Some who live in border states have already been experiencing upticks in crime, such as Texas ranchers who have had their homes broken into by criminals illegals.
Border Patrol agents, those brave men and women who have been tasked with securing the nation’s borders have had much of their time eaten up by processing and caring for these illegals, leaving the border open for others to cross over. On top of this, these agents have come under fire from drug cartels and in some cases, the Mexican military as well.
One would think that given the plethora of dangers Border Patrol faces, Obama would increase their ammunition and other supplies to help keep them safe.BizPacReview reported on an interview with retired Border Patrol agent Zack Taylor who said the president actually went the other direction and limited their ammo, making it difficult to practice and use their weapons for protection.
“The ammunition restriction is expected to last until the beginning of the 2015 fiscal year. That’s not until October of next year.”
“The Department of Homeland Security used to buy ammo for us by the boxcar. Now, ammo is being accounted for round-by-round.
Outrageous. Hearing something this dumb come out of the Obama administrationshouldn’t be shocking at this point, yet it is. If the limiting of the ammo is an attempt at reducing spending, it’s one of the worst ideas this president has come up with.
While monetary motivations are certainly part of the equation, given that Obama wants desperately to flood the country with illegals in order to cause a panic andpass amnesty, this decisions likely has some political motivations as well.
Efforts should be made to ensure Border Patrol has all of the resources they need to defend themselves from dangerous illegals and to keep people from entering the country, comprising our safety.
