Border Patrol -- July 19, 2014
Grande Flood Control System is made up of 508
miles of levees that parallel the river.
Under the Secure Fence Act of 2006, many
of these levees were enhanced to block migration
north. (Note: The Texas maps are being updated)
On June 25, American Border Patrol used a GoPro
camera to fly along the levees near McAllen, Texas,
to see how well the system is working. What we found
was disturbing. Most of the levees that could be
used for border security are wide
open - no fencing at all.
Moreover, where fencing has been installed, what
should have been gates
were found wide open. What good is a fence that
has huge holes in it?
On July 14 we returned to Texas with a professional
photographer. What we found was incredible. What
was supposed to be gates, were left WIDE OPEN
because the electric gates were never installed!
top general says the open border is a direct threat
to the existence of the United States of America.
Congress should act immediately to secure the
Texas/Mexico border by competing the levee security
system, as we
recommended on July 2. It should override any
veto. If Barack Obama refuses to enforce this new
law, he should be impeached.
