Border Patrol: Obama’s Catch-And-Release Policies Create “Open Border With Mexico”

posted on April 12, 2016

Border Patrol agents are now forced to release illegal aliens “still soaking wet from crossing the Rio Grande” under verbal orders issued as part of President Obama’s border enforcement “priorities,” the head of the agents’ labor union told Congress last week, according to the Washington Times

Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, told the House Judiciary Committee that illegals have learned to game the system, telling agents that they arrived in the U.S. before Jan. 1, 2014, in which case, if they have no criminal record—or even if they do—they’re simply released.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection, which oversees the Border Patrol, insists there is no such “stand down” order, with CBP Commissioner R. Gil Kerlikowske saying that those who object to Obama’s policies should look for new jobs. However, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., said, “President Obama must end his disastrous open border policies.”
