Make America Great Again involves so many things.
One of the biggest parts is undoing all the damage Barack Obama did to the this country.
One of the great debates of all time is if Obama was just incompetent or if he was intentionally trying to destroy the United States. I believe the latter.
For reasons like this. You can’t possibly look at this and think it’s anything but intentional sabotage.
The Obama Administration (and let’s be honest, this came direct from him, not the “administration”) had a policy where the border patrol agents were told not to screen big truck trailers for drugs. You’d think that’s a joke but it’s not. Agents were told not to screen them because it would “slow down traffic”. Wow. Like we are here to make traffic better for the drug cartels? Unbelievable.
It got so bad that one area was called the “Heroin Transit Zone”. Yup, just get the biggest truck you can find, load it up to the gills, and come on in! That was Obama for you.
President Trump has put a stop to this, and reports are that morale among border agents is skyrocketing! They are finally allowed to do there jobs again, and boy are they ever! The drug cartels are reportedly furious. Good!
Here are more details on the story, from TeaParty.org:
In what can only be described as a significant shift from the lax Obama-era regulations, the Trump administration is letting customs officers screen cargo trucks entering the US from Mexico – something that sources are saying has Mexican drug cartels enraged.US Customs and Border Protection will be using X-ray technology and other nonintrusive methods to screen every single cargo truck that crosses the southern border. This is a welcome change after eight years of sporadic, random screening that the Obama administration permitted, according to a story from Judicial Watch.
It’s no surprise that Customs and Border Patrol agents have been enthusiastic about these changes. “We felt like we were the welcoming committee and not like we were guarding our borders,” said Patricia Cramer, veteran agent. “We want to enforce the law. That’s what we signed up for.” In fact, one official went on to say that cattle trucks would pass without inspection during the Obama presidency all because Mexican farmers complained that the security frightened their cows. “Our guys were livid that we were not allowed to check cattle.”
The situation had gotten so bad under the Obama administration that a report published by the Congressional Research Service (CRS), a nonpartisan agency that provides Congress with analysis, concluded Mexican drugs were entering the US at record rates as of August 2016. The western states, in particular, had essentially become a “Heroin Transit Zone” for the cartels.
Drug cartels operate like efficient businesses and are constantly watching out for new security loopholes to capitalize on. They regularly have spotters who watch with binoculars from hideouts near the border checkpoints to determine how tight the security screenings are at all times and the most opportune times to cross the border. With their preferred method of transporting drugs into the country being cargo trucks, this procedural change by the Trump administration could threaten the cartel’s lifeblood.
Not only will these changes promise to halt the flow of drugs into our country, it will also help stop human trafficking and the many illegal immigrants who perish trying to reach the sanctuary cities. Many recall the recent incident in San Antonio where ten illegal immigrants died while being smuggled across the border. The conditions were so bad that they had to take turns breathing through a hole in the truck. Deaths were caused by heat stroke and dehydration, as reported by The Daily Mail.
Thankfully, these Obama era policies are being scrapped, and the border looks like it’s going to be properly secured – a welcome change from these past eight years of indifference. According to Fox News, border agents on the front line have been enthusiastic about the change, with the head of the National Border Patrol Council stating, “Energy among agents is best I’ve ever seen. We signed up to do a job, and this president is allowing us to do that.”
