Illegal immigrant arrests down….Prosecuting Border Patrol Agents seems to be working…..

The NY Times reports significant decreases in CAUGHT illegal immigrants……
Homeland Security Officials cited the drop in apprehensions as clear evidence the borders are becoming more secure.

The only barometer to gauge whether migrants are being discouraged to attempt entering the United States is how many migrants are caught.” officials from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security say. The number of apprehensions has sharply fallen in the last few months.

When asked about possible reasons for the dramatic declines in apprehensions, A proud HLS spokesperson explained:

….New measures range from simply putting more officers out on patrol to erecting stadium lights, secondary fences and barriers of thick, steel poles to stop smugglers from racing across the desert. The Border Patrol has deployed hundreds of new guards to watch rivers, man surveillance cameras and guard fences.

and then could have added:
“Dissuading the millions of illegal immigrants and smugglers from crossing our borders by actually sealing the border and enforcing the law has only met with limited success. This process also costs a lot of money and has not produced the declining illegal immigrant apprehensions we need as proof the borders will be secure by November 2008.

“Our new program…….Operation “BAAP’UMS”…(BORDER AGENT ARREST and PROSECUTION, USING MEXICAN SMUGGLERS) appears to be working far better. Based on the dramatic declines in confrontations we are currently seeing; we are getting clear indications that our efforts to arrest, prosecute and incarcerate Law Enforcement officials not only produces the data we need, but saves the taxpayer money.
“Who knew we would only have to prosecute and jail 4 or 5 Law Enforcement officers to get these results.”

A Border Patrol spokesman probably agreed:
” This new BAAP’UM equipment….uh….works great. Uh…….sure…..um….absolutely…..We’re “SEEING” way fewer illegals and drug smugglers in the last few months. You bet…….we arrest the ones we “SEE”, but we just don’t “SEE” them like we used to. When you don’t “SEE” them you sure as hell don’t arrest them……if you know….uh…… what’s good for you.

Hmmmmmmm?

Let’s go get some Chow………..

Border Patrol agents say they are picking up about 100 people a day, rather than the 500 a day they handled a year ago. and add apprehensions over a 4 month period are down 27%.

Federal Prosecutors in Texas agreed:
“It’s uncanny….. Arrests and prosecutions of law Enforcement agents have significantly increased over the same period. There seems to be some correlation…..We’re not sure why, but it seems the more agents we arrest and put in jail, the fewer smugglers the remaining “free” Agents see. This of course means fewer must be crossing our border……What else could account for the decrease?”

“We are comfortable that this actually reflects a change in momentum,” Michael Chertoff, secretary for homeland security, said in an interview last week during his first official visit to Mexico City. “I’m always quick to say it doesn’t mean we can declare victory. To some degree, I expect the criminal organizations, or smugglers, are pulling back a little, watching to see if we lose interest.”

He might have added:
“Remember, we vowed not to consider any “Guest Worker Amnesty” program until HLS certifies the borders are secure, and our commitment to get the American people to believe our borders are secure has not wavered. We are clearly moving in the right direction.”
As a side note:
“We would like to commend the hard work of Federal Prosecutors like Johnny Sutton as well as smugglers we grant immunity to so they can help us put our Border Patrol Agents in jail where they belong. Also, we should not forget the dedicated HLS officials willing to lie to Congress and a special thanks to El Presidente Oberon of Mexico for his pressure and assistance.
All these folks have played a crucial role in the decreasing arrests at our border.”

We believe Americans can be confident that apprehensions will continue to decrease….and before you know it…………the Border will be secure……….yep.
