Border agent: 'We might as well abolish our immigration laws altogether'

Source: Washington Examiner | 2/4/16 | Paul Bedard

In a shocking reversal of policy, U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents are being told to release illegal immigrants and no longer order them to appear at deportation hearings, essentially a license to stay in the United States, a key agent testified Thursday.

What’s more, the stand down order includes a requirement that the whereabouts of illegals released are not to be tracked.

“We might as well abolish our immigration laws altogether,” suggested agent Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council.

Testifying on the two-year border surge of immigrant youths, Judd said the policy shift was prompted by Obama administration “embarrassment” that just over half of illegals ordered to appear in court actually do.

“The willful failure to show up for court appearances by persons that were arrested and released by the Border Patrol has become an extreme embarrassment for the Department of Homeland Security. It has been so embarrassing that DHS and the U.S. attorney’s office has come up with a new policy,” he testified before the immigration subcommittee of the House Judiciary Committee.

The biggest change: Undocumented immigrants are no longer given a “notice to appear” order, because they simply ignore them. Judd said that border agents jokingly refer to the NTAs as “notices to disappear.”

    Pastors ask us to be careful to not betray our faith by insisting that we secure the borders, reminding us that we need to take these people in and love them. I understand where they are coming from, but I still believe it is misguided information. First we have to have the rule of law put back in place. You can see that MANY of the people coming over are not destitute and looking for a better place to live…not excusing that some are. However, churches used to reach out to the really needy and support them, bringing them over to work with them,help them assimilate, etc. Now it is free range. Not only that, but they are aggressive and demanding. They are rude to Americans. They throw trash everywhere and do not follow the laws of our country. If picked up, they claim they don’t understand, etc. They need to come legally and assimilate. PERIOD!
