Insane. Border theater.
Late on Monday night, U.S. Customs and Border Protection together with the Department for Homeland Security announced that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) would be conducting a targeted enforcement operation in El Paso, Texas.
The operation would see officers with the federal authorities look to track down migrants who came across the U.S. border illegally and who escaped any sort of processing by immigration authorities.
But the union representing the Border Patrol agents stated the ‘entire operation is a sad joke’ and ‘another pandering PR stunt.’
‘Nothing like publicly announcing that dangerous people will be arrested, while warning them ahead of time exactly where to run and hide to avoid arrest. This entire operation is a sad joke – another pandering PR stunt. Serious law enforcement leaders don’t behave this way,’ the Border Patrol Union – NBPC tweeted on Monday night.
Strategically speaking, the announcing of such information makes little sense with those seeking to evade capture by the authorities now given advance warning.
There is nobody driving the clown car and they’re not even trying to hide it anymore. They’re beyond hopeless.
And sending in the Marines to do…. . data entry.
