Guess the Interior Dept.Thinks it's OK for Illegals to Tramp Through This National Refuge But Forbids the Border Patrol to Enter

Interior Dept. Impedes Border Patrol From Securing U.S.

Putting environmental preservation ahead of national security, the Interior Department prevents Border Patrol agents from securing heavily transited federal wildlife refuges along the Mexican border, including the one used by an illegal immigrant who recently murdered an Arizona rancher.

The Mexican national entered the U.S. through the 2,300-acre San Bernardino National Wildlife Refuge and subsequently escaped through it after gunning down rancher Robert Krentz a few weeks ago. For years, Border Patrol agents have been prohibited by the Interior Department and the U.S. Forest Service from actively patrolling such areas because it threatens natural resources.

Motorized vehicles, road construction and the installation of surveillance structures required to adequately secure the vast areas are forbidden because it could endanger the environment and its wildlife. In the meantime, Mexican drug cartels and human smugglers regularly use the sprawling, unmanned and federally protected land to enter the U.S.

The abhorrent security gap has become the focus of federal lawmakers who plan to make changes in the wake of the Arizona rancher’s brutal murder. Four Republicans on the House Natural Resources Committee have introduced legislation that will prohibit the Department of the Interior (DOI) from using environmental regulations to hinder U.S. Border Patrol from securing the border on federal lands.

As a result of DOI’s actions these federal lands have become an unpatrolled highway that’s open to criminals, drug smugglers, human traffickers and terrorists who endanger American lives and cause severe environmental damage, the lawmakers say.

Adding insult to injury, Interior officials charge Homeland Security millions of dollars for conducting preapproved Border Patrol operations on its land. Since 2007, Homeland Security has paid DOI more than $9 million to mitigate the “environmental damage” of protecting the border, according to a fact sheet provided by the Natural Resources Committee Republicans.

This certainly presents a problem since the Interior Department is the primary management agency for nearly half of the land along the U.S.-Mexican border and around 10% of the Canadian border. Nearly all of the land is sparsely populated with easy access into the U.S. from Mexico. Terrorist could easily smuggle nuclear, chemical or biological weapons through these routes, according to a government threat assessment for public lands.

They are doing this on purpose.

So when the people cry out "DO SOMETHING" they will enact a crack down on the populace "Never let a Crisis Go To Waste." even a planned crisis.

This move by the Interior

This move by the Interior Dept, in essence, gives the illegals a refuge in a National Wildlife Refuge.

If they can make it to that refuge they are home free the Border Patrol cannot pursue them. And it's an easy route back to Mexico.

Maybe we need the National Guard guarding that National Wildlife Refuge, not allowing anyone to enter or exit?

I think we need to fence in

our political and banking masters who are using peasants to further their NWO agenda. If the Political Class would REMOVE the incentives for coming here, they would stop coming. If they would legalize drugs then the drug wars would stop. The whole situation indeed very sad and I feel bad for all the peasants that includes us. The elite are most happy when the peasants are knocking each other off, it is their depopulation solution.

The politicians have been trying for years to get Comprehensive Immigration Reform aka Amnesty.

Our country can not continue to sustain an exploding population.

And those who are interested in the destruction of America know it.
