The U.S. Customs and Border Protection and border patrol agents are now protecting illegals hiding out inside our country through the use of “safe zones.” “Safe zones” are areas where CBP agents are not allowed to enter, which gives the illegal a place to live without fear or oppression. The agency advertisement tells illegals to hide if they are being chased by authorities. A “FAQ” page details what Homeland Security’s CBP considers safe zones for illegals.
- Schools, such as known and licensed day cares, pre-schools and other early learning programs; primary schools; secondary schools; post-secondary schools up to and including colleges and universities; as well as scholastic or education-related activities or events, and school bus stops that are marked and/or known to the officer, during periods when school children are present at the stop;
- Medical treatment and health care facilities, such as hospitals, doctors’ offices, accredited health clinics, and emergent or urgent care facilities;
- Places of worship, such as churches, synagogues, mosques, and temples;
- Religious or civil ceremonies or observances, such as funerals and weddings;
- During public demonstration, such as a march, rally, or parade.
According to CBP and Border Patrol regulations “the enforcement actions covered by this policy are (1) arrests; (2) interviews; (3) searches; and (4) for the purposes of immigration enforcement only, surveillance.” To further appease the illegal immigrants, this policy is provided in both English and Spanish. The website also lists a toll-free number and email address to report any immigration enforcement taking place at a “sensitive location.”
President Obama’s immigration policies prevent CBP and border patrol agents from fulfilling their duties and protecting Americans from possible acts of terrorism, gang violence, drug smuggling and the influx of illegal immigrants entering our country. Homeland Security Director Jeh Johnson’s support of this policy shows his lack of understanding of the threat brought by illegals entering our country.
