Yesterday the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) released a statement saying that Clinton’s immigration plan is extreme and puts Americans at risk. Hillary Clinton has pledged to expand Pres. Obama’s amnesty in her first 100 days in office.
"Clinton's call for amnesty in her first 100 days and expanding these dangerous policies demonstrates her deeply alarming willingness to sell out the security of American families to advance her political or financial interests. Her immigration plan is not only dangerous for all American families, but previews an administration that will once again defy the will of the voters and Congress…" the statement said.
This promise of amnesty is already encouraging more people to cross the southern border.
"We are already seeing a massive influx of activity on our southern border. Secretary Clinton's very candidacy, and the amnesty she promises, is luring families into the U.S. and wrecking innocent lives," the NBPC wrote.
The 16,500- member council repeatedly criticized Pres. Obama’s lax immigration enforcement policies, calling it the “Era of No Consequences”.
“Interior deportations under Obama were down 40 percent and at a nine-year low. In addition, eight out of ten illegal immigrants caught at the border were allowed to stay. In many cases, they were given taxpayer-funded bus tickets to relocate to cities in the interior of the nation…It has been reported that the agency released more than 80,000 illegal aliens with criminal records. This number was significantly larger than what Director Saldana told Congress during her testimony. The Boston Globe reported that 30 percent of those released in New England re-offended…This is Obama’s true legacy on border security,” The NBPC wrote.
The council said they are worried that Clinton’s plan would be even more dangerous and drastic than Pres. Obama’s.
“We would face an unprecedented crisis if she was elected and allowed to implement her plan. Cartels and Islamic extremists would quickly manipulate this chaos and further their plans to harm innocent American citizens. Clinton has pledged to close detention centers, release immigrant family members and offer American citizenship, Obamacare, education, and amnesty to all,” they said.
