Border agents arrested nine U.S. citizens for their involvement in a smuggling plot. They were attempting to sneak illegals into the United States. What CBP discovered proves — more than ever — how much we need stronger enforcement.
Never believe a Democrat when they talk about illegal immigration. They want to sweep the entire issue under the rug. Why? Because they like the fact that millions of illegals flood our border. Those aliens are unknown to the federal government. They work for low wages, taking jobs from American citizens. Living in constant fear, their only hope is the empty promises liberals make to them.
Promises, of course, the left never makes good on.
For Democrats, illegal immigration is a modern-day form of slavery. They exploit desperate people for cheap labor. In return, they give out (to some of them) government benefits. Their children can go to American schools and they benefit from our healthcare system. Democrats get a large group of fraudulent voters.
Democrats don’t care about reforming the broken system. If they did, they would have done something during Barack Obama’s time in office. Only now do they suddenly seem to care about the welfare of illegals. Yet they still don’t do anything to change the situation. Illegal immigrants risk their lives (and the lives of their children) to illegally enter the United States. They endure terrible treatment, all so that the left has people to manipulate.
Take border patrol’s most recent bust. Nine American citizens were trying to smuggle illegals into the country. Border agents discover five dozen people trapped inside tractor trailers. They were imprisoned inside these trucks, in the sweltering heat, unable to leave.
This is what Democrats want to protect.
Border agents with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) rescued more than five dozen illegal immigrants who were trapped inside sweltering tractor trailers over the weekend as they were being smuggled into the country, officials said Thursday.
In five separate incidents, Border Patrol — which polices the border between ports of entry — arrested 64 people who had entered the U.S. illegally. They also arrested nine American citizens who allegedly aided their trip across the border.

Democrats never talk about the terrible conditions illegals endure to enter the United States. They have to face extreme conditions crossing weak parts of the border. There are wild animals and natural hazards. Those that don’t want to deal with that, are subjected to the criminal actions of human smugglers. Drug cartels and other groups subject illegals to extremely dangerous situations. If they are successful, illegals owe these criminals for the rest of their lives.
It’s a terrible situation, no matter how you look at it. Do you want to know the best way to end it? Make entering our country illegal impossible! Aliens won’t experience these dangers if they know they can’t get in. Enforcing our border will force potential immigrants to come here legally. We need to eliminate any other option — so criminals and smugglers don’t have an upper hand.
Border Patrol agents, the CBP added, have amped up efforts to rescue stranded people along the Arizona border, regardless of the immigration status of those stranded.
The agency also announced Thursday its agents arrested about 42,600 people along the border in June — an 18 percent drop from the nearly 52,000 arrests made in May.
Of the more than 40,000 arrests made at the border, roughly 34,000 of those were made by Border Patrol. The rest occurred at official border crossings. [Source: Fox News]
The liberal media loves to make illegal aliens appear sympathetic. They want you to feel sorry for the many thousands that want to cross our border on a regular basis. “Can’t you just let them come in here?” But they don’t tell you that they are in danger because they are trying to cross illegally.
If they were coming here according to immigration rules, they would have no problem. But it seems like the left wants more humans crammed into tractor trailers. How is that “compassionate”?
