Fire Trump and the entire immigrant problem disappears.
I don’t believe that hiring private contractors is the right thing to do here. The government should directly supervise and support border patrol officers. After all they are like police and we should not allow private contractors police our borders.
Democratic Continuing Obstructionist Mentality Ongoing I’m in full agreement Folks....To @SenSchumer and @NancyPelosi: Either agreeing to the funding of President Trump's #BorderWall, in order to keep our country safe and prosperous, or watch the Government shut down. The ball is in your court. “CHOOSE WISELY OR SUFFER THE CONSEQUENCES” #FundTheWall. #GovernmentShutdown SneakyPete..... 🤔🙀🤔🙀🤔. 12*11*18.....
Only to make sure the Trumps don’t flee.
Stop with the manipulation of peoples fears. It is despicable.
HIRE ADDITIONAL CBP AGENTS ASAP...... Does the U.S. need to hire additional Border Patrol agents? YES..... YES..... YES..... AND YES. WHY NOT CONSIDER THE HIRING OF DISCHARGED WELL QUALIFIED & TRAINED U.S. 🇺🇸 MILITARY TO BECOME CBP AGENTS? SneakyPete..... 🤔👍🏻🤔👍🏻🤔. 12*11*28....
They need to have better training for ICE who treat all with hostility and brutality. A woman died recently because of mistreatment by ICE they should be charged of a crime. As well as brutal police who give all a bad name.
ICE are too similar to the Gestapo in 1930s Germany and are doing human rights violations
No more money for border patrol or barbed wire fences. Spend the money on needed infrastructure- roads and bridges.
This particular story is more about the contractor failing to honor it’s contract. I don’t want more border patrols. But, I do want what the contractor to refund the taxpayers money if they cannot get the job done.
CBP officials disagreed with the inspector general's conclusion. CBP called it a waste of taxpayers funding. CBP knows every aspect of their job. So I agree with them.
No. But also yes. The border patrol has been trying to ramp up hiring for decades and has always had difficulty keeping up with demand. But the real group that should be hiring are immigration public defenders and immigration judges to deal with the huge backlog of cases.
No. STOP fear mongering. Go watch “The Monsters Are Due On Maple Street.” That’s how we’re going to be destroyed- from within, by our own fears and prejudices.
Using “Active Duty” Military To Perform Border Security Duty The Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 prohibits the use of U.S. military forces to perform the tasks of civilian law enforcement such as arrest, apprehension, interrogation, and detention unless explicitly authorized by Congress. The Posse Comitatus Act, signed into law by President Rutherford B. Hayes on June 18, 1878, limits the power of the federal government in the use of federal military personnel to enforce U.S. laws and domestic policies within the borders of the United States.

Use drones combined with the agents we have and that should be enough. The Border Agents should be taught how to be nice to immigrants and to stop acting like the Gestapo.
We should hire additional agents, while phasing out contractors for full time work. Additionally we should allocate full funding for a border wall, that includes seismic sensors to detect tunneling.
Trump's fear-mongering is toxic, and his falsehoods need to seriously be addressed by Congress.
Another epic governmental waste. So much for the Republicans being the party of fiscal responsibility.
He spent $13M outsourcing this ‘need’ to a company this year. They hired 2. My money is hard to come by. Taxing, and subsidizing his ego instead of meeting the needs of this country must end.
