How bad is at the southern border? THIS BAD

We’ve seen the statistics. We know the border is overwhelmed by migrants coming from Central America and elsewhere. But I didn’t realize it was this bad…

FOX NEWS – The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is planning to send hundreds of officials to the southern border to help the Department of Homeland Security with the escalating immigration crisis, Fox News confirmed Wednesday.

“TSA, like all DHS components, is supporting the DHS effort to address the humanitarian and security crisis at the southwest border,” a spokesperson told Fox News. “TSA is in the process of soliciting volunteers to support this effort while minimizing operational impact.”

The move, first reported by CNN, is expected to consist of a few hundred officials, with a maximum of 400 volunteers, ranging from department attorneys to, potentially, some air marshals. CNN reported that the agency does not initially plan to involve uninformed airport screeners, but that some parts of TSA will be asked to contribute around 10 percent of their workforce.

The spokesperson said that the deployment schedule had not yet been finalized and that Americans should not be concerned that the deployment will hurt air travel safety because “at this time, the deployment will not include any frontline resources.”



This is a great idea! Send the TSA down there to give migrants awkward pat-downs so they’ll stop coming. Ha!

Seriously though, the fact that they are sending hundreds of officials from the TSA down there should bring home just how desperate it’s gotten at the southern border.

There are so many holes in the faux-dam that even these hundreds aren’t likely to be enough to adequately stop the flow. Send congressmen and women down there and turn the into a human fence so they can see first hand just how bad it REALLY is.

All the eyes are on the southern border when the outrage and attention should be focused on those rats roaming the halls of Congress. They are the problem because they have the power to stop this madness but won’t.

This ‘crisis’ is a crisis that need not be happening. It’s an occurrence that is happening because our elected officials have self-interest at the root of their inaction. We have every law that we need, already on the books to curtail this CRISIS..I do NOT feel an obligation to provide shelter, medical care, food, etc to a mob of people who just showed up at our door demanding to be let in. (I know, I have no soul). I’m beyond sick of this.

The first thing we should do is remove everyone from the border who are not a part of the security forces Those Attorneys at the Border along with the Humanitarians who are providing food ,water and clothing are attracting to the border more illegals than we could ever safely absorb.We are going to pay for this illegal invasion and every politician who allowed it should be impeached along with the thousands of Judges.who opened up our borders

Speaking of flying them out. If we deport those from Central America I believe we have to fly them back to Central America. If I had my choice I’d dump them on Mexico. They brought ’em, they can take ’em.

SquirrellySquirrelly I love Cruz…a lot, but I get tired of people that blame everything on Trump and claim that Cruz would have everything solved. It’s a farce. Not only would he have to fight the Democrats he would have to fight the Republican Congress. Congress doesn’t like anyone that goes against the grain and Congress IMO bears most of the blame for the border. Only they can change the law and all I have heard for years are crickets. They don’t want to fix the problem…crisis or not.

Good place for the TSA. Something I want to share that is relevant. I’m not one to stay up really late typically, but Sat. a week and a half ago, I was still up after midnight. I was flipping through channels and landed on ABC. Eric Bolling was on and was talking about the Middle Eastern, ie Muslim, people that are being brought to our border. He named the person who is leading this effort and showed a map of their route(s) from the ME to our southern border. We knoe this is happening, but I was dumbfounded that it was being aired on ABC albeit in the middle of the night but WOW!

Maybe if trump and his ilk would stop giving them water, food and relocation within our borders, they might turn back.

Maybe if CONgress would stop focusing on trying to impeach the PRESIDENT and START doing their job, there wouldn’t be a crisis at our southern border.

Aside from UPHOLDING THE CONSTITUTION, which every member of CONgress SWORE to protect and defend, Congress has five main functions: lawmaking, representing the people, performing oversight, helping constituents, and educating the public. These are responsibilities they are to perform for WE THE PEOPLE. There are laws on the books that need to be changed, CONgress is not doing that and unless you live under a rock you know that. CONgress holds the key in this one, blame your CONgressman.

I’ve been trying to let everybody know that there is a real and growing crisis on the southern border. It’s under reported and scoffed at. I made the following comment on a Breitbart article about a mass capture of illegals in the Big Bend area. My comment is angry and crass, but it’s a truth that needs to be expressed. This is an American sovereignty crisis, but it’s also a big humanitarian crisis. My apologies up front if my comment offends any of you. The buzzards love this all you can eat buffet stupid enough to risk the elements in this harsh desert area of Texas. So far, our weather this spring has been 15 to 20 degrees below average.

“uninformed airport screeners”……Freudian slip?

Returning to the US on a recent trip, I clearing customs and headed to TSA on the way to my connector. The TSA agent dutifully removed all 7 Kind bars from the box I had in my luggage and wiped each with a cloth and put in his sniffer machine. Didn’t even look at any of the small bags of spices next to the Kind bars. He must of had specific orders, but it really dumbfounded me as to why he chose the wrapped and sealed granola bars over the bags of multi-colored spices.

I think the machines only identify things that are jelly or fluid like. What I don’t understand is if they allow fluid bottles under 3.4 oz, what stops me from having a bunch of 3.4oz bottles of some explosive liquid? I just wonder if their rules are really thought out and tested!?
