How long before a couple of terrorists drive a truck full of nukes across our wide open borders.Get the part of this article that says they wont prosecute smugglers that are caught with less then 750 kilos trying to cross our southern border.What a joke these clowns in Washington are.
 

Sheriff Tells Congress That Border Patrol Agents Ordered to Reduce Arrests

By Jana Winter

Published May 03, 2011

The Border Patrol’s practice of detecting but not apprehending illegal immigrants -- known as “Turn Back South” -- is in effect far north of the U.S.-Mexico border, Arizona Sheriff Larry Dever claimed in congressional testimony Tuesday morning.

“It appears, according to numerous reports from current and former border agents, that this practice has gravitated many miles north of the border. That means that, regardless of proximity to the border, people who are detected but not caught are considered to be “Turned Back South,” Dever said in his written testimony before the Homeland Security Subcommittee on Border and Maritime Security.

Last month, FoxNews.com first reported that Dever said he’d been told by Border Patrol officials, including at least one senior supervisor, that they have been ordered to reduce and to sometimes stop arresting people attempting to cross into the U.S. illegally.

Homeland Security officials, including Border Patrol Chief Michael Fisher, have repeatedly denied these claims, but a flood of current and retired Border Patrol agents from across the country continue to come forward with details of their own that support Dever’s initial remarks.

Dever leveled another new charge: That TBS-ing is going on within the American judicial system. “There are policies in place that establish thresholds for quantities of drugs and numbers of illegal aliens before consideration for prosecution can be entertained. In at least one Federal District in Texas, if you are caught smuggling less than 750 kilos of marijuana, you will not be subjected to prosecution,” Dever wrote, citing several examples.

“TBS occurs at many levels and is quickly assimilated into the understanding of the bad guys on how to game the system.”

Committee Vice Chairman Ben Quayle pressed Dever on prosecutorial smuggling thresholds toward the end of the 90-minute hearing.

Dever responded with a case in which someone in the U.S. illegally had been deported 23 times but never charged.

On Tuesday, during the same hearing, Border Patrol Deputy Chief Ron Vitiello wrote in his testimony:

“While there is still work to be done, every key measure shows we are making significant progress along the Southwest border. Border Patrol apprehensions have decreased 36 percent in the past two years, and are less than a third of what they were at their peak.”

He was not questioned by committee members about TBS-ing, though that was not the focus of the hearing on cooperation between local and federal law enforcement at the border.

After the hearing, Dever told FoxNews.com that he thought the hearing had gone “okay.”

“They could’ve been a little more difficult. They could’ve asked more difficult questions,” Dever said, adding that he’d hoped the committee members would’ve asked more about the TBS part of his submitted testimony.

“That was something that they could’ve delved into, but they didn’t,” he said.

“It was pretty much hands off, it wasn’t a game of hardball.”

Then we need some vigilantes to take over if the Border Patrol won't do their job. Again, what is this kinder/gentler crap that has overtaken this country? Never works on the criminal element. When will the eggheads that are running the asylum realize that? Need to fire the clown (s) who gave the order to the Border Patrol to lighten up on the arrests. They are part of the problem. Incompetence is epidemic in Washington.
