Set aside the issue - just "who" is coming thru our open borders?
The new ROE is based on - "The PERF report was commissioned by top DHS leaders after advocates said law-enforcement agents had killed roughly seven people a year along the 1,933-mile border in 2010, 2011 and 2012. The shootings came during 67 clashes with a huge stream of armed drug-smugglers and illegal immigrants."
I am suggesting that something even more sinister is being completely overlooked in this rush to not get anybody hurt - good guys or bad guys!
A very few facts culled from - Drug War Facts - Drug Use Estimates
#25 - (Initiation of Cocaine or Crack Use in the US, 2012) - In 2012, there were 639,000 persons aged 12 or older who had used cocaine for the first time within the past 12 months; this averages to approximately 1,800 initiates per day.
#27 - (Current Heroin Use in the US, 2012) The number and percentage of persons aged 12 or older who were current heroin users in 2012 (335,000 or 0.1 percent) were similar to those in 2011
#40 - (Prevalence of Illicit Drug Dependence or Abuse Among Full-Time Workers in the US) Approximately 3 million full-time workers (2.6 percent) aged 18 to 64 met the criteria for past year illicit drug dependence or abuse
#55 - (Global Distribution of Drug Use) Globally, drug use is not distributed evenly. In general, the US had among the highest levels of use of all drugs
Now back to the originally scheduled broadcasting - DHS demands that the border guards "play nice!" Subtitle - YOU are going to let those illegals and drugs into America or else!
H/T Citizens Militia of Mississippi - Posted on March 10, 2014 by ror1774 at Reclaim Our Republic - DHS tells American border guards to run away from illegal immigrants hurling rocks at them, fleeing in vehicles
Mar 8, 2014 by Neil Munro
Top administration officials have directed 21,000 border patrol officers to retreat whenever illegal immigrants throw rocks at them, and to avoid getting in front of foreign drug-smugglers' vehicles as they head north with their drug cargoes.
"Agents shall not discharge firearms in response to thrown or hurled projectiles... agents should obtain a tactical advantage in these situations, such as seeking cover or distancing themselves," said the instructions, issued Mar. 7, under the signature of Michael Fisher, chief of U.S. Border Patrol.
Agents were also directed to keep their weapons holstered when drug smugglers drive by. Continue here.
Instructions, issued Mar. 7, 2014, by Michael Fisher, chief of U.S. Border Patrol can be viewed in full - HERE! His final statement to a very emasculated Border Patrol - "Something that has resonated with me since becoming a BP agent 26 years ago is remembering that an important part of our job in the course of securing the homeland is to make it home every day at the end of each shift. Honor First!
Playing nice will result in the deaths of more Brian Terry's. More innocents. It degrades the security and freedoms (not even touched on here) of families along the borders. It allows in huge numbers of illegals and certainly some who would wish this country harm. They are called terrorists. And - it is flooding America with drugs! None of those issues are even considered in the new ROE, but hey - "Honor first!"
