Shock Claim from Border Patrol Union Chief: Enforcing the Law Causes a Decrease in Crime

The leader of a union of border patrol agents has said that the steep drop in the number of illegal immigrants attempting to cross the southern border is “miraculous”:

The significant downturn in the number of illegal border crossers between the U.S. and Mexico is “nothing short of miraculous,” National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd said on C-SPAN Monday.

“As far as the Trump administration’s efforts on immigration, this is something they campaigned heavily on,” he said. “At six months, where we are on meeting those promises, we are seeing nothing short of miraculous. If you look at the rhetoric that President Trump has given, it has caused a number of illegal border crossings to go down. We have never seen such a drop that we currently have.”

…This month, Customs and Border Protection reported a 53 percent decrease in the number of apprehensions at the southwest border since last year. The number also includes those deemed inadmissible. CBP sees apprehensions as a proxy for how many people are trying to cross the border, and says the drop in apprehensions indicates a drop in attempted illegal crossings.

Of course there is nothing truly miraculous about what is happening. When our law enforcement agents are actually allowed to do their job criminals will think twice before acting.

This is why the globalists are so completely terrified of any nationalist movement gaining control of a Western government. Nationalism will work, and it will work easily and immediately for the simple reason that globalist policies are so completely insane and deliberately destructive that anything would work better. One of the main globalist arguments against nationalism and conservatism is that right-wing ideas are simply impossible to implement. The globalists want us to believe that it is impossible to stop illegal immigration, that it is impossible to have a protectionist trade policy, that it is impossible to prevent homosexuality, that it is impossible to teach teenagers to be abstinent, etc. Sadly many Christians have even accepted this idea and repeat the Jewish Marxist mantra that “you can’t legislate morality.” We must turn away from these worldly doctrines and accept the clear teaching of the Bible: God’s revealed standards of morality must be the basis for our civil laws, and with God’s help this morality can be enforced.

    Thank you Clement.

    “…Border Protection reported a 53 percent decrease in the number of apprehensions at the southwest border since last year. The number also includes those deemed inadmissible. CBP sees apprehensions as a proxy for how many people are trying to cross the border…”

    With this “logical” inference, my confidence in this “glowing” assessment made by the National Border Patrol Council just sank. To be forthcoming, I admit to believing no such decrease in actual illegal immigration over the southwest border is happening. I believe that the opposite is true. I assert what this article is suggesting is deceptive. I think readers should filer its contentions with a healthy dose of skepticism for the following reasons:

    1) I wonder if the National Border Patrol Council is applying any bias in making the inference that this purported outcome demonstrates the value and effectiveness of their member’s service? Is it unique that a lobby group, union organization, or special interest advocate portrays their member’s efforts as exactly what they were idealized to produce.
    2) I wonder if this remarkably positive report offers beneficial public perception to the current administration and decreases public discontent in the effectiveness of current efforts. If this result is actually true (not true in the mathematical derivation, but the actual translation to actual individual incidences), than why go to the cost, effort, and time of constructing an extra barrier (wall)? It is strangely coincidental that when the growing American alt-right is coming to the hostile realization that they will not see a border wall built in their lifetimes, their anger and fears should be pacified by being reminded of an existing border control system that is doing the job.
    3) As anyone with even the smallest modicum of statistical analytics knows, a 53% reduction of anything, may not, and often does not, confer an actual numerical reduction of an associated event. Many analytical methods are employed to generate desired trends that will not represent the actual frequency of occurrence. For instance, most of us are aware that county crime statistics are often interpreted differently by law enforcement agencies to argue either a growing incident of crime (in order to protect their annual budgets) or a diminishing rate of crime (to demonstrate their effectiveness come sheriff elections) – sometimes in the same year! In any case, the reported trends have nothing to do with the actual incidences. These manipulations are performed through claimant rate differentials, reporting thresholds, definitions-classification of crimes, jurisdictional disputes, victim confidence effects, apprehension rates, grouping of individual offences and on and on and on. In short, statistics, especially crime statistics have no correlation to actual crimes perpetrated or attempted.
    4) Is it irrational to consider that globalists want the skeptical public to be ignorant, or better yet, misinformed to the destructive effects from their self-serving (not insane from their perspective and purposes) policies and agendas? I would suggest that this is the more systematic approach to interpreting what is “sold” as news in today’s media.

    Clement writes, “The globalists want us to believe that it is impossible to stop illegal immigration…” I differ in opinion as I believe that it HAS BEEN MADE impossible to stop illegal immigration, but impossible none the less. We can see the possibility realized in Israel, Poland, Hungary, etc. We can also see how it is made impossible in Sweden, Germany, France, etc. My belief in the capacity of a nation to control its borders does not lie in its ability or desire but in its rulers intents (by ruler I do not mean a nations apparent government). I contend that whether Donald Trump, Killary Clinton, Bernie $aunders, or whoever is elected, the American southwest border will operate exactly how it is suppose to for those who control our type of democracies. In fact, America does not even need a border security system- just end the overwhelming benefit gradient it’s entitlement system provides, severely sanction employers hiring illegals, and deport existing illegals. This would be more than sufficient to return this to a non-issue.

    A nationalist or a globalist governing choice is just a guise to deflect the attention from the non elected (even unacknowledged) puppet masters. Nationalist Trump will be no different than a globalist Obama other than his platitudes. I will not even blame Trump, as whatever lawful, sensible, beneficial policy he signs in effect is just as easily and quickly rescinded by the (((courts))).

    Clement writes, “We must turn away from these worldly doctrines and accept the clear teaching of the Bible.” True, but I as with many Christians, have/will never accept these evil teachings and practices but sadly that will not change our fallen nations. I leave that to Christ and His new Heaven and new earth.(1 John 2:17; 2 Pet 3:13). I now work to keep evil out of my home, out of the Church (sadly even that is now becoming difficult), and out of my community (near impossible). We must also pray for wisdom and walk THE WAY of obedience and holiness dedicating ourselves to God (Heb 12:14; Rom 12:2).

    I do not believe the Prsident in responsible for Border Security.. During the Bush (W.) administration Border Guards Ramon and COmpean did their jobs and shot an invader with his drug supply for El Peresidente. Both were convicted and sent to prison until the same pardoned them at his last acts. Their victim was not harmed seriously and is enjoying somewhere in the promised land his million he was awarded from his suit.

    Another K-9 officer , young women named Stefane Mohrm was tried and convicted from St. Charles County Maryland . The illegals were El Prezidente ,s drug entrepeneurs and she arrested them . SHe was convicted by an ambitious Jew Prosecutor , agitating to ingratiate himself with the administration. 10 years for racial crime in Alderson , West Virginia. Young law enforcement try despite the retribution of this traitorous government.

    The bor der situation can be closed as explained many years ago by a retired army officer. Were USA a sovereign state , militarization of its borders would be mandated. It has never been. Machine gins will close it!

    This is to support the above vigilant , skepticism of the administrations report. This can be misleading and deceptive which all media is.
