As Border Crisis Intensifies, Unlikely Federal Agents Head South

They’d be better off sending mall cops.

TSA

While a grand swath of our nation has been occupied with the Mueller report and its aftermath, a burgeoning crisis continues to swell on our southern border.

Exacerbated by well-organized and seemingly well-funded migrant “caravans” and a lack of adequate support from a great many of our nation’s legislators, our Customs and Border Patrol forces are running lean.  Maybe a little too lean.

The sheer number of would-be immigrants attempting to enter our nation has overwhelmed a system that was already stretched thin.  Without a physical deterrent to persuade these migrants to seek out legal points of entry, this is not only a legal issue but a humanitarian one, as the illegal methods of entry into the USA are often guided by less-than-scrupulous characters who prey on women and the young within their groups.

The simple and undeniable fact of the matter is that the immigration issue needs addressing, and the federal government is running out of quality enforcement officers to send south.

Now, scraping the bottom of the law enforcement barrel, the TSA will be joining the fight.

The Transportation Security Administration plans to send hundreds of officials to help with efforts to deal with migrant inflows on the southern border just as the busy summer travel season begins, according to an internal email obtained by CNN.

The task of the TSA workers, which a source said will include air marshals, will be to assist temporarily with immigration duties. TSA acknowledged in an internal email the “immediate need” comes with the acceptance of “some risk” of depleted resources in aviation security.

TSA plans for the deployments to involve up to 175 law enforcement officials and as many as “400 people from Security Ops,” according to two sources and the email. At least initially, the efforts will not involve uniformed airport screeners, according to the email, which says that some parts of TSA would be asked to contribute “around 10%” of its workforce.

The creation of the TSA has long been considered a low point for American liberties, especially given their abhorrent record of efficacy and the continued expansion of their rights to grope Americans at airports.

Watch: Biden Claims 150 Million People Killed By Guns Since 2007, Warns Manufacturers He’s Coming

He’s only off by 148.5 million, so…

You’re probably reading that headline and saying to yourself, Nah, Joe didn’t say 150 million people were killed by guns since 2007. There’s no way even he would say something that ridiculous! Well, my friends, you’d be wrong. According to the former 2020 Democrat frontrunner and soon-to-be three-time failed presidential candidate Joe Biden, his statement is accurate. 150 million people, all dead – from guns, since 2017. Just…I mean…Joe…WHAT IS THE DEAL, BRO!? The guy also said he’s coming after gun manufacturers if he’s elected. So, you’re safe, gun manufacturers.

Still a lot, obviously, but not even sorta kinda close to 150 million. From NBC News: More Americans have died from gunshots in the last 50 years than in all of the wars in American history. Since 1968, more than 1.5 million Americans have died in gun-related incidents, according to data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. By comparison, approximately 1.2 million service members have been killed in every war in U.S. history, according to estimates from the Department of Veterans Affairs and iCasualties.org, a website that maintains an ongoing database of casualties from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Video: Bloomberg Says He Spent $100 Million & ‘Bought’ Democrat Majority In The House

Yep. He said it!

In case you forgot to tune in to Tuesday night’s Democrat debate (and there’s a decent chance you did), you missed former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg (D) acknowledging that he personally “bought” a Democrat majority in the House of Representatives. Mike didn’t mean to let this slip. He caught himself, just not quickly enough. From Daily Wire: Democrat presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg said during a CBS News debate on Tuesday night that he “bought” the Democrats’ majority in the House of Representatives.

She doesn’t want to Keep America Great, either. Instead, Judy Sheidlin has decided to back Democrat turned Republican turned Independent turned Democrat Michael Bloomberg for president. From Fox News: The TV courtroom personality, 77, wrote a piece for USA Today in which she endorsed former mayor of New York City Michael Bloomberg for president even though he’s not currently running for the position. She said, “I realize I am taking a personal and a career risk. I have carefully stayed away from politics for 50 years, except to vote. But times have changed in our country, and I believe the moment has come for me to step out from behind the curtain. I want to speak honestly and from the heart — regardless of the consequences.” She added, “Our American family has been fractured in recent years. We’re hopelessly divided, and a bitterly divided family cannot thrive,” she said. “The only way we can begin to come together again, I said, is if Michael Bloomberg, former mayor of New York City, becomes our next president.”
