Borders? We don’t need no stinking borders!

Once again Border Patrol agents were attacked, with one wounded and one being killed on American soil and our government continues to pretend that its porous borders do not contribute to the violence occuring there.

Not only has our government inadequately secured our borders, but they may have actually supplied the weapons used in this incident, as was the case in the death of the last border agent, Brain Terry.

In the Brian Terry shooting, two guns found at the scene were bought by a member of a gun-smuggling ring that was being monitored in the Fast and Furious investigation – another Eric Holder Justice Department screwup that allowed countless guns to cross the Mexican border.

Critics have questioned U.S. federal authorities actions that allowed informants to walk away from Phoenix-area gun shops with weapons, rather than immediately arresting the suspects.

Investigators suspect that more than one person fired shots at the three agents who were attacked.

 Excerpt:

Border Patrol identified the slain agent as 30-year-old Nicolas Ivie.

The shooting occurred at the Brian Terry Station near Naco, Ariz., which is just south of Tucson. The station was named after an agent who was killed in the line of duty in December 2010. The area is considered a remote part of the state and sources tell Fox News that the shooting occurred at 1:50 a.m. local time and about 8 miles from the border.

Excerpt:

 “There’s no way to know at this point how the agent was killed, but because of Operation Fast and Furious, we’ll wonder for years if the guns used in any killing along the border were part of an ill-advised gun-walking strategy,” Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley said in a statement.

 The Terry family said that the shooting was a “graphic reminder of the inherent dangers that threaten the safety of those who live and work near the border.”

Our government seems more concerned with the rights of illegal aliens in the country than the violent drug cartels, which also use the trails and underground entries into our country, than they do about their own citizens and those who are placing their lives on the line – the undermanned Border Patrol.

  1. Speaking of “Fast & Furious”, you should look up “Operation Castaway”, which is a similar Obama regime program in Tampa, “walking” guns to Honduras.

  2. The only time the media brings up the subject is when a border agent fires at an illegal alien. Then we have a big problem.

  3. Of course the borders have to remain wide open; this serves the aims of ethnic hustlers looking for more constituents, Democrats looking for more votes, and the Big Biz wing of the Republican Party looking for more CHEAP LABOR. If your kids suffer from the drugs pouring across the border or innocent Americans are killed or maimed by alien criminals, that’s just too bad. We can’t worry about ordinary citizens where the desires of the Elites are concerned! What do you think this country is, a republic under the Rule of Law? How utterly naive!

  4. Note to Juice: don’t worry about the BP firing on, or even returning fire, on illegal aliens. They’re only armed with “beanbag rounds” not real ammunition.

  5. Americans, poor souls, are always being mislead. People don’t just come over the border, all by themselves and then wind up in places like North Carolina by the millions, or Boston, Mass., or Arkansas, at Tyson Chicken. No. Our government brings them in, often on busses, and sends them to different areas of the United States, to take the jobs Americans won’t do, even though every state I’ve been to, when there are no illegal aliens around, I see Americans doing those jobs they won’t do. And then they already have housing waiting for them,etc. They pay no taxes but get earned income credit, money that they didn’t earn. This is the United States of America we have today, whether your’e talking about the Congress, Senate or White House. Citizens mean NOTHING and are NOTHING. California is about to return to Mexico, it seems. And the Congress and Senate and WH wouldn’t care in the least. Good day folks.

  6. You’re right as always Ted. The government did supply the weapons used in this incident. I’ll bet the family of Agent Ivie wishes that the agents were only armed with “beanbag rounds” during this incident as VLM spouted. Really, some of the stuff being thrown out to make a political point is just plain disgusting. Couldn’t you have just expressed sorrow at the loss of this brave public servant and waited a respectable amount of time to make your points. At least then you would have known the actual facts in the case. I’m waiting for the ‘baggers to say the the FBI is fabricating the “friendly fire” report to protect the President. Being a border patrol agent has always been a dangerous job and has become much more so ever since the war on drugs began. We should acknowledge their courage and sacrifice and not pounce on a tragic incident to vent our frustration with political leaders. (“political leader” may be an anachronism these days.)

      Yea Azguy, I should have waited a respectable time period, like Obama and his inept administration did, after the assasination of our Lybia ambassador, then lie about the reason he was killed and my lack of security to protect our own soil in a foreign land even after the ambassador asked for protection more than 10 times.

      This administration is inept, pitiful and liars to boot. What a sad president and his inept cronies.

  7. Wow Ted, you jumped halfway around the world from Arizona to Libya to get away from that egg you laid. When you make a claim about how the government “may have” supplied the weapons you should either defend the claim or admit your error. Or better yet get the facts first and use “did” or “did not” instead of “may have” or “could have”. The latter have no place in fact-based discussions.
    Here’s Mexico-U.S. trade relations 101: We send them guns and money. They send us drugs and illegals. And that’s based on supply and demand and it’s been going on for much longer than the President who drives you bananas has been in office. Just for fun, research under which Administration have the most illegals have been deported.

    azguy, Ted does not believe that he laid an egg! He feels that he was absolutely right. His position is that the government did in fact supply the gun that killed the latest border agent. What difference does it make that they were guns issued to the Border Agent that shot his fellow Border Agent – the government did supply that gun.

    • Ted Biondo

      No doubt JRM, the agents are under a lot of pressure trying to guard too much territory, because your Obama administration doesn’t care how many illegals and drug dealers come across the border and the agents are so understaffed, it’s a miracle that friendly fire hasn’t taken more agents. BTW, Great compassion there JRM concerning the loss of another American’s life trying to defend your butt every night at the border!

    Oh Ted, I just rechecked you posting above, and I noticed that you really showed your compassion for the loss of life of the Agent. You skipped by it so fast to make sure you got to blame the current admisitration for what has been going on for a very long time. Take this from someone who lived 10 miles from the Mexican border in Arizona for 12 years and crossed the border everyday to work for 5 years – you have absolutely no idea what you are talking about. You have not got a clue what an impossible task guarding the borders are. All you are interested in is pointing your fingers and your warped sense of reality at the current administration or any administration that you don’t agree with.

    One would think that at your advanced age, with all the experiences you should have had and wisdom you would have gained by now, you would exhibit much more wisdom than the shallow, chicken little headlines that you like to spout. But we can always count on you to demonstrate just the opposite.
