What is it actually like at the border? An AZ congressman offers an in-depth look

On radio this morning, Mike Broomhead filled in for Glenn and welcomed fellow Arizonan, Congressman Matt Salmon (R-AZ) to the program to discuss the situation at the border. Salmon is a member of the House Immigration Reform Caucus, and he is also working to secure the release of Marine Corps Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi who has remained locked in a Mexican prison since March 31.

Salmon has spent a tremendous amount of time at border towns in both Texas and Arizona over the last several months. He has seen first hand the overcrowded border patrol outposts and the difficulty border patrol agents are having simply doing their jobs. Salmon blames this humanitarian crisis – which will see some 60,000 unaccompanied illegal immigrant children cross the border this year alone – on the “lackadaisical enforcement attitude” of the Obama Administration.

Salmon recently visited the border patrol facility in Nogales, Arizona where agents are working closely with the thousands of children who have poured across the border, and he explained that morale at the outpost is particularly low.

“[Morale is] abysmal because they’re cops. They want to enforce the law. They want very, very much to be able to do their job,” Salmon explained. “And in my conversations with them and their leaders, they said, ‘It’s not a problem with our resources. We have enough people right now to get the job done. It’s the fact that our bosses and this Administration is tying our hands and not lets us do what we know and should have to do.’”

Salmon went on to describe the workflow at the facility, which has changed dramatically in recent months. The goal is to have the children at the facility for no more than 72 hours, and 140 agents have left their posts at the border to essentially babysit these kids.

“At the one in Nogales, they have 140 border patrol agents that have volunteered to come and do this – and by the way, they’re all off of the border… basically baby-sitting these kids,” Salmon explained. “And they have a whole host of Health and Human Services employees that are screening them for health issues and immunizations and all that kind of stuff. And then the FEMA folks are there as well.”

“So they’re supposed to be there no more than 72 hours,” he continued. “And then they’re supposed to be able to either put them in some kind of a group home out in the community or what I call like a ‘foster home,’ until they can [be] reunited with their families. But the problem is that… many of them have family members here, but they’re also here illegally.”

The situation is particularly dire when you consider many of these families are selling everything they have to be able to pay the cartels to transport their children. In many Central American countries, cartels and others with nefarious intent are actually advertising their services and claiming the U.S. will offer amnesty to those who make it across the border.

“We’ve got to fix this in it no time flat because these kids are ending up out in the community and there is no deterrent,” Salmon said. “These families are selling everything they own to pay $5,000 to $8,000 to the cartels to move their kids. If those kids were repatriated back to the country, then they’d find out it wasted money and it would stop. It would dry up.”

Salmon has also been on the front lines of trying to bring Sgt. Tahmooressi home from a Mexican prison following his arrest for weapons possession back in March. While the goal of having Tahmooressi reunited with his family by Fourth of July seems unlikely, Salmon believes good progress has been made.

“I believe that he has a very good attorney… I think that the Mexican authorities want out of this as much as we do… They’re moving ahead,” Salmon explained. “When I last met with [Tahmooressi] about a week and a half ago, he was in good spirits. He was feeling optimistic. He’s a young man with a lot of faith.”

Had the Obama Administration actually stepped in to help this soldier, Salmon believes this ordeal would have been over some time ago. Apparently the ethos of never leaving a man behind does not apply to this particular serviceman.

“It breaks my heart that somebody, you know, that has given so much to his country has had to, you know, languish in a Mexican prison for close to three months,” Salmon said, “when we probably could have gotten him out a lot quicker had the President made as much of a priority as he has, you know, with this young man in Afghanistan.”

    Why are we baby-sitting these illegals? Give them the applications for a U.S. Citizenship and if they don’t fill it out or don’t pass, send them back. Simple as that.

    BO is banking on your soft hearts to push his radical agenda! If he wants to reunite these illegal children with their families, he can reunite them back home in their own country when he deports them. They are not Americans and have no rights to US resources. It is disgusting how Veterans who have earned rights are treated like rubbish and many have died whilst this charlatan pretends that he is the champion of these illegals when it was him, his policies that started this crisis. Sent them back!

    I must say it disheartens me to hear they want to put these children in ‘foster homes’ or group homes. Does anyone realize how many AMERICAN children are in need of foster homes. I know in Maine, foster homes are needed drastically. Although my heart breaks for what these people suffer in their own country, we have a responsibility to our own citizens first. We cannot take care of these people nor can we afford them. I pray we wake up, fall to our knees, pray to God
    for change and get off our couches to make the change happen. God Bless America!!

    I have lived in Arizona as a child until I married . We moved to California and then to Texas later for over 25 years . I have seen all boarder states and in my opinion Nogales has turned into a huge slum mess. It use to be a place where everyone went and now Americans are afaraid to go there for fear of kidnapping robbery etc. Texas has a better handle on it Thank you Gov Rick Perry. California is Redicilous.

    The real blame is with President Obama and his abusive use of the hispanic culture on behalf of promoting his Leftist agenda . It is shameful. Just as most of what is going on now with him in office. Obama needs to be impeached . !!!!

    They have pulled 70% of the border patrol off the borders and have them either driving the illegals to another facility or dump on street corners with no help at all or they are diapering, making sandwiches and stuff like that. Why can’t the women, the older boys, do the diapering and making sandwiches? Free. Provide the food, have the doctors check them out, make sure they are clean and washing hands and put them to work. Others can babysit the small children while they are doing this.

    Watch the other hand. Each crisis BO creates has many tentacles that are also attached to it. This illegal alien invasion is just one of his made crisis and keeps us focused so much on just the invasion and how to stop it that no one is looking at all the tentacles attached to it that are not so obvious – can’t see the forest for the trees. One tentacle attached to the illegals as they flood our borders is of course the “health crisis” with their contagious diseases and epidemics of lice etc., and our “health SYSTEM crisis” they are creating by overwhelming our system – but it goes beyond that and our government setting up clinics and medical treatment for them – and the spreading of their diseases onto us and our children.

    This invasion is to create unsustainable chaos to collapse the system and America, as we who are “AWAKE” have figured out. But there is more.

    Big Pharma is worth Billions $$$. Big Pharma is a very very Big financial supporter of those politicians who scratch their back. Big Pharma is set to make Billions more with this invasion as this administration gives them an endless supply of takers (the illegals) (who, by the way, are also unsuspecting guinea pigs), and an seemingly endless supply of $$purchases$$ of meds and such by our government – force paid by us. This will far surpass what they made – and continue to make – off our military. Big Pharma will also play a very big roll as we citizens are taken over by our own government. Big Pharma is a Big player in obama’s war chest. This needs to be reported on and brought out to the citizens of America.

    This “medical treatment” the illegals are given access to is, by the way, forced upon the illegals. Until they try to refuse it is when they will realize they do not have a choice to refuse treatment or immunizations etc., and then we too will realize it as they complain their “rights” are being violated or that the children have been “damaged” by drugs or treatment given them.

    The Sgt. will rot in the Mexican prison since he is not a Muslim. Obama only caters to Muslims…take the release of that traitor soldier in trade with the 5 Muslim worse terrorist. I may be wrong but one reason Obama is encouraging the coming of the illegals is for future votes for the Democratic party. .

    Obama was trying to play on Americans heart strings. Can’t fall for it. Send the children back and the organizations and people who care, send them to the countries of these children, and they can teach them how to make a living and exist, and teach them how to come to America legally. It sounds like the Cartel cost more than what it would cost to come into America legally.

  • Rachel

    You’re not wrong. If Obama did this because he CARES about the kids, then he’d stop because the kids are being abused, sold into sex trade and some dying on the way. How caring does that sound to you? He knows that no one will return these kids home…and once they kids are here, well then we HAVE to bring their parents too…and their grandparents and uncles. Because we can’t separate families!!! Even though those families separated themselves by sending their kids here all by themselves. The whole thing is sick. And many of the people sneaking in ARE sick and bringing their sicknesses with them. ANOTHER OBAMA FIASCO.

    Tahmooressi is being ignored by O’bummer because of the guns he had in his possession! He wants to remove all of our guns like Hitler did, and then he can control us! If this poor fellow ever gets out, it will have to be done with an attorney! Also concerning foster homes for these illegal kids, I used to be a foster parent when I was younger and each child fostered gets several hundred dollars a month! The ones I had got around $800.00 per kid! This is another way to bankrupt our country! I agree with rainger1ful! The citizens are going to have to be the ones to remove him and his proteges from office and demand a trial for treason!

    Yes – where is the CDC? These are horrendous diseases. One article claimed that the treatment for the resilient form of TB will cost over $100,000 per individual. When I was young, there was a TB outbreak with hundreds of patients receiving long term (terminal) care in sanitariums. Treatment included patients living in “iron lungs” – large entombment machines that breathed for them. At the same time, thousands upon thousands of young and old people were inflicted with another horribly contagious disease – polio.

    1. No war occurred that caused those children to come here.
    2. Many of these children are nominally Christian, at best.
    3. This has nothing to do with “white”, “black”, “brown” or whatever color or race you are spewing about.
    4. The Obama Administration is complicit in *causing* this invasion to occur, and Freedom of Information Act requests will uncover the depth and pervasiveness of the Obama Administration promoting *and paying money* to the countries these kids traveled from and through, exposing numerous and massive violations of Federal law *and*, probably even international law.
    5. These kids need to be sent home, back to their families, in their countries of origin, that’s the best overall solution for all concerned without even a shadow of a doubt.

  • rickroland

    Yes, let the reolution begin. FAIL!

  • rickroland

    If Obama cared about the kids, his Administration wouldn’t be neck deep in being the responsible entity for them coming here. Bids were solicited by DHS in January 2014 for companies to care for, house, etc. 60,000 adolescent illegal immigrants. That means, at least months before, if not longer, this influx was *planned*, not “just happened”, but was actively and energetically planned and executed by the Obama Administration (officials thereof, along with a few key traitorous members of Congress). Also, late last year, the Obama Administration *promoted* that people that come here with “credible fear” for their lives are granted entry. And, well, then cheat sheets are found on a number of these invaders that coach them on saying “credible fear” and other such nonsense. This was a planned and carried out so-called “crisis” by the Obama Administration. And, Freedom of Information Act requests will expose a hoard of violations of the Constitution, Federal law and even international law by Obama and officials in his Administration plus a few key members of Congress. The next couple of months are going to be political hell for the Obama Administration, as indictments and impeachments galore are ramped up and fully done.

    ““These families are selling everything they own to pay $5,000 to $8,000 to the cartels to move their kids.” No, they are not. You are wrong in that statement sir. For one thing they say that no one has money in their country so who has that kind of money to buy what they own? Plus, do they have 5000 to 8000 dollars worth of stuff? The money is coming from illegals already here in the United States. They send money back home to finance more illegals to come into our country. That’s where the money is coming rom. Plus, the only way for it to stop it is to arrest those who hire them. They are the ones that give the illegals reason to come here. If there is no work, the there is no reason for them to come here.

It is so frustrating that the average person cannot think in terms of common sense while BO throws all his self made crisis at us and filled with the most obvious lies. The illegals are supposed to be coming in from drug and violence infested 3rd world countries so impoverished and they are just looking for a better, safer life for their children. They are so bad off but yet they are able to come up with many thousands of dollars to hand over to the type of criminals they are supposedly trying to flee from and throwing their children into these violent murdering criminals arms in trusting them to deliver the children to the U.S. Makes perfect sense! Not. Come on people – Wake Up and Wise Up!

    Prepare for school to begin next month and all these illegals will be overcrowding our “free” educational system while bringing their diseases to our children and families throughout the country. Laws will be put into place requiring us and our children to be vaccinated for multiple diseases being brought in (both new diseases and those that had been eradicated here) and lice infestations and infections will be rampant. Our children will be forced to sit at the back of the class on hold while our teachers work in vain to bring the illegals up to speed and more classes are added to teach them English – while it becomes mandatory in every state for our teachers and children to learn and speak Spanish. Educational requirements and expectations will be greatly diminished and the dumbing down of America continues as our country falls into the abyss. It will be interesting to see how the environmentalists react when all these millions of third world country invaders treat our land like they treated their environments in their own countries. What pictures we’ve seen of their “mark” and presence in the deserts and across our farmer’s lands, crops and livestock on their way through is a mild version sneak peak of what’s to come.

  • SoundMind

    A strong suspicion is beginning to develop in my mind and I’m not sure is sound…. what if there are, say, only about 5,000 unaccompanied diseased minors that they’re shipping from place to place, but Obama is claiming there are 50,000+ just so he can declare “emergency” and institute martial law in order to “save us all”…….. I just wouldn’t put a manufactured crisis past him. There’s a reason folks can’t take photos of them. There’s a reason they wouldn’t let the congressman in. With all this anti-transparency, it’s hard to sort out.

    We don’t have to accept this at all but we have miss informed voters who continue to put these progressives back into office.

    Obama redistributes Americas wealth to non Americans and to foreign countries that views us as the problem.

    The sad thing is we’ve crossed onto dangerous ground. This whole entitlement and war on success from this president has demented the hearts and minds of half of those who inhabits this country.

    This is so ridiculously outrageous folks! My understanding is these illegals are from everywhere south of Mexico, crossing in the southern borders of Mexico, riding straight up thru Mexico and without mishap cross over the Mexico/ USA border, then all hell breaks loose instantly causing a “humanitarian crisis” over night on the USA side of the border!! I realize our borders have been over run ..so What happened to the very strict immigration laws of Mexico?? These people were driven all thru Mexico as tho they were taking a field trip to “Disney Land”!! Quite frankly.. Isn’t that exactly what happened here? The only possible way this could occur, would be a premeditated agreement between the US and Mexico!! Right?? The problem?? These people are not Mexican citizens, so they are NOT allowed to cross back into Mexico! Why? Cuz that would make them ILLEGAL ALIENS in Mexico!!! As Americans we can turn the other cheek more than most ..but ALL this??? The soldier still in a Mexican prison is purposely ignored, while a deserter is coming ‘home’ acting as a POW to aide(Obama?)in the release of 5 high priority terrorist out of Gitmo!! ect, ect!! IDK about y’all but the hair on the back of my neck is up! Turning a cheek is one thing, but feeling as tho I’m being forced to drop, bend and spread the others, now, that my friends, is quite another!!
