Retired Border Agent Warns Of Coming Threat
"Those people are disappearing..."
B. Christopher Agee -- Western Journalism -- September 23, 2014   
    In an interview with the creator of a documentary about America's porous southern border, a 26-year veteran of the U.S. Border Patrol offered some frightening insight into the growing threat illegal immigration poses.
    Retired agent Zach Taylor explained that “immigration laws are designed to primarily do just two things: protect national security and public safety.”
    Preserving the nation's economy and job market from an influx of illegals falls under the national security component, he noted, while the public safety aspect develops safeguards against “people coming in to take over America by force or subterfuge.”
    The Department of Homeland Security oversees “the apprehension and collection of the illegal aliens” through the U.S. Border Patrol, Taylor said, while the potential spread of disease is handled by agents of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the U.S. Public Health Service.
    "We've never seen the CDC or U.S. Public Health Service work together with the border patrol at the border ever,” he lamented.
    As a result, Taylor cautioned, illegals suffering from severe and undiagnosed illnesses are being transported to locations unknown even among federal agents.
