Border Patrol Checkpoint Nabs 25 Illegal Aliens
Thanks to the coordinated efforts of federal immigration enforcement agents and local law enforcement officers, a weekend long border patrol checkpoint in New Hampshire yielded 25 suspected illegal aliens and the seizure of various narcotics and drug paraphernalia.
Yet not all of those detained were suspected of crossing into the United States illegally.
According to a statement issued by the United States Customs and Border Patrol, 14 of the 25 individual,, who could not prove that they were legally allowed to be in the United States, had been overstaying their visas.
The operation also experienced a little bit of excitement as an unidentified U.S. citizen tried fleeing the checkpoint and led the authorities on a high-speed chase.
“Agents also encountered one U.S. citizen who ran the checkpoint fleeing at a high rate of speed for nearly 5 miles. Woodstock Police were able to stop the driver who was arrested and charged with three felonies including reckless driving, possessing a controlled substance and endangering the welfare of a minor.”
The detained illegal aliens from this weekend-long operation are just a sampling of the border enforcement efforts that have been occurring since the president took office.
As a candidate, Donald Trump made several basic promises to the American people that the former administration would not.
Among these are the promise to repeal the failing Obamacare, enact tax-reform, secure the border, and return the rule of law.
Though President Trump’s efforts to repeal Obamacare and enact tax-reform are reliant on cooperation with the Republicans in Congress, border enforcement efforts can be done from the Executive Branch as they fall under the category of law enforcement.
Since taking office, Donald Trump has issued several executive orders that have strengthened the border enforcement force, allowed the deputization of local law enforcement to assist with immigration enforcement duties, allowed the publishing of crimes conducted by illegal aliens, and devoted resources to aiding victims of illegal alien crimes rather than devoting efforts to defending illegal aliens.
However, the president has been under fire, facing fierce criticism from the Drive By Media, Democratic Party politicians and community organizers alike.
These complaints generally fall into the category of, “It’s racist to enforce a nation’s rule of law by protecting its borders.”
Despite the Left’s efforts to undermine and attack the administration, Donald Trump is continuing to deliver on his campaign promise to bring back the rule of law that had been gradually eroding while Barack Obama was running things.
