Desert Invasion - U.S.

No Amnesty to reward lawbreakers, Mr. President - We're trying to arrest the same people you're trying to legalize

By Members, US Border Patrol Local 2544, Tucson, AZ




Here's what the law says about entering this country illegally (really, it's a "criminal" violation):

"8 U.S.C. 1325

Improper Entry by Alien

(a) Improper time or place; avoidance of examination or inspection; misrepresentation and concealment of facts; Any alien who -

(1) enters or attempts to enter the United States at any time or place other than as designated by immigration officers, or

(2) eludes examination or inspection by immigration officers, or

(3) attempts to enter or obtains entry to the United States by a willfully false or misleading representation or the willful concealment of a material fact, shall, for the first commission of any such offense, be fined under Title 18 or imprisoned not more than six months, or both, and, for a subsequent commission of any such offense, be fined under Title 18, or imprisoned not more than two years or both."

When you hear from knucklehead politicians about how it really isn't a "crime" to enter this country illegally, and you hear from illegal aliens about how "I'm not a criminal", you'll know better. When you violate "criminal" statutes, you're a "criminal". Pretty basic stuff. Having clueless idiots like former DHS Undersecretary Asa Hutchinson going on national television stating that entering this country illegally "isn't a criminal violation, it's merely an adminstrative violation" helps you understand how out of touch and ignorant these people really are (and this guy was supposed to be our leader, God help us). It looks like the Senate will pass Amnesty now, and it looks like we're all on the road to being sold out again (Border Patrol agents being assaulted daily, and for what?). They'll have "rules" about "those here less than five years....blah, blah, blah", they'll have "fines" (another complete joke), they'll "demand" that people here "less than five years but more than two years" leave the country and then come back (ha, ha, ha, how do they prove that, there are no records of any of them coming in the first place), and all those "rules" will be ignored and laughed at just like they were in 1986.

Buckle up America. You're about to get overrun. Multiple thousands more arriving daily after hearing of this amnesty program. The next scheduled amnesty program to reward all those entering after this amnesty program should be around 2026 if history repeats. Don't believe for one minute all the cheap talk about "enforcing the border" or anything similar. It's a pack of lies. History has proven it to be a pack of lies and it's only meant to temporarily pacify the voters so the politicians can sell you their magic potion.

Current Issues

Help U.S. Border Patrol Agents Fight Amnesty. While President Bush and many of our politicians are selling us out we need millions of "good hearted" Americans who actually care about what we do to back us up. The country continues to be overrun with thousands more illegal aliens every single day folks.

We're losing this battle - big time. This isn't some concocted story, it's a fact from the front lines. If you want to live in a dream world ask the people in Washington D.C. what's going on. They'll confuse you with the pretty talk they learn in politicians' school (classes currently being administered by Vicente Fox in Cancun, Mexico.

If you want to know the real story ask us. Amnesty DOES NOT WORK. It only rewards lawlessness and further demoralizes Border Patrol agents. They tried it in 1986. It was an absolute disaster. George Bush steadfastly refuses to listen to the people who put him in office.
