Border Patrol Union VP Says Feds ‘Cooking Books’ on Illegal Immigration

Brandon Darby, Breitbart, September 30, 2013

Shawn Moran, the Vice President of the National Border Patrol Council, recently spoke out on behalf of U.S. Border Patrol agents who routinely risk their lives to keep our nation safe and our borders as secure as possible to Breitbart News.

“The politically-appointed class within the U.S. Border Patrol and in the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency are cooking the books to make it appear that illegal immigration is decreasing,” Moran claimed.

“It was late 2011 or early 2012 when the leadership in U.S. Border Patrol put out a specific memo declaring that we could no longer check buses unless we had specific actionable intelligence indicating illegal aliens would be on certain avenues of transportation,” Moran explained. “Even though this was one of the most productive ways for us, they said Border Patrol was no longer allowed to do the checks.”

“The numbers are down because they are not allowing us to check the places where we know illegal aliens are,” he said.

“If we found footprints for 50 people, we would put that in the intel report and the numbers would be recorded,” he said. “Now if we put that number in, they reduce the number to thirty. They say things like ‘How do you know they didn’t get caught later?’ They try to cook the books to make it look like we are being more effective and less people are coming here.”

“Some of our advanced surveillance reveals that we are about 45% effective, meaning we are not even catching half of the illegal aliens or drug smugglers who enter our nation,” Moran claimed. “Now the politically-appointed leadership of U.S. Border Patrol and of U.S. Customs and Border Protection [BP’s parent agency] have effectively grounded that system of surveillance after the numbers did not match what their public numbers were.” He added that there have also been numerous sensors the bureaucrats have ordered turned off.

    If the RINOs and the Democrats refuse to enforce our nations immigration laws, then it is time for the American people to take the laws into their own hands.

      Putting bounties on them perhaps ,paying for ears or scalps?
      I apologize that was politically incorrect and culturally insensitive.
      It was the evil white devil coming out in me , I’ll try and be more sensitive to those less fortunate than me. Perhaps if I attend a Gay wedding or a Thugathon at chucke cheeses I will become more aware,do you think they would mind me bringing a gun or two. Oh no I did it again , well no more fox news for me for at least a week .

        Ears ?!!?!?!? Scalps ?!?!? What the hell is wrong with you !?!?! A true Aryan Warrior takes the whole head as his trophy !

        • So CAL Snowman

          What are you going to do with all of those heads?

          • Whitetrashgang

            Hes going to go black and never use them, remember a mind is a terrible thing to waste unless you have whitey around to do things for you.

            It would give quite an economic lift to the Chinese bowling ball bag manufacturers.

    Well, what did you expect ? They already lie about everything else…

    • joesolargenius

      You mean like our ecologically protected national parks?

  • joesolargenius

    I think we should just turn the Rio Grande into another Panama Canal about three hundred yards wide and one hundred foot deep and put a sentry every mile.

      Why not just carpet bomb Mexico and Central America over and over and over and over. If they want to invade us and start a war, we should give them a war.

      • Greg Thomas

        We are at war with mexico, we just have not begun to fight. What do you think mexico would do if we suddenly put the 1st Division ( along with the 11th for good measure) along our border? What do you think mexico would do if we suddenly went on a mass round up of all their squatting illegal invaders? It’s not as if mexico could do anything, but they have not had to do anything, given our government has surrendered to their invasion.

        In their warped, corrupted minds, they would consider such measures an act of war (along with “racist”) and respond with the usual rhetoric.

          Where there is a Mexican, there is Mexico cuts both ways like a Viking sword thrust through an enemy’s rib cage. That also means their presence is not only an invasion, but aggression against us. The Mexicans do not understand we have not yet begun to fight, and they will be wishing we hadn’t when that day comes because they will pay for their anti-white hostility in rivers of Mexican blood.

    And now with the new lure of free healthcare, the hordes will come again. Just another step in the plan to destroy and control America.

    • bigone4u

      Bingo. The New World Order is a PLAN to destroy what the country was. We whites were too uppity for the elites, with our unions and our constitution and such.

        • joesolargenius

          As usual your comments are quite interesting and informative . Did you know that they deleted our comments about bounties on the illegals concerning taking ears scalps or heads.

      • So CAL Snowman

        I don’t think we were too uppity, I think we were juuuuust right. We were just smart enough to pull the trigger (WW1, WW2, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, etc.) but too dumb to know why we were actually doing it. The plan was ALWAYS to use the USA as the enforcement arm of the New World Order. The USA is not being destroyed, WHITE people are. The USA is exactly where it should be according the actions taken by our “leaders” over the past 100 years.

      • Ella

        We are also too educated and have the capacity for “free thinking.” Propaganda can fail at times and create angry reactions from the masses. We the People have no place to go…………

  • bigone4u

    Lies, lies, and more lies. Shawn Moran is a true patriot for telling the truth. Given the way this government operates, how long will he remain alive or how long will it be before he is framed on false accusations? We patriots must stand by our patriots like Moran and Snowden, while working for the downfall of the current regime. Not until Obama/Biden/Holder are tried for treason and hung will the truth return to politics.

  • Whitetrashgang

    Well , well, well, so the government lies to us as well continue the soft genocide of whites. Well if we our going to on thing only just don’t pay your taxes and enclose a note why.This is one thing everyone can do. Now who is our leader?

  • Luca

    The sad part is, those Israeli security measures were paid for with American foreign aid money compliments of the US taxpayer.

  • Zaporizhian Sich

    If the Jews can surround themselves in Israel with robo-machine guns like this one, we can do the same along our borders too.

    • Ella

      I never knew they use this type of surveillance weapon in Israel! This would be so effective against the drug runners. A smart investor should market them in the USA along our Mexican borders.

      • Zaporizhian Sich

        They do indeed, 50 caliber machineguns that will destroy anyone who approach within a mile or a mile and a half. But they do not use them for surveillance so much but to kill people as through it’s a video game, and to make life Hell for the Palestinians. They know full well U.S. tax dollars fund this, and these death devices will also be used against us sooner or later.
