Bush Refuses to Increase Number of Border Agents Despite Need for More Personnel Story dated 31 January 2005
Michael W. Cutler, a retired INS senior agent, said "Just last week, the State Department issued a traveler's warning about escalating violence in the northern regions of Mexico, including incidents of kidnapping and murder. . . These crimes are being committed on our southern doorstep, many of them against our own agents. It's time they got a little help." The Bush administration refuses to carry out its duty under Article II sec. 3 of the Constitution, which requires the President to execute the law authorizing 10,000 new Border Patrol agents over the next several years. "President Bush is expected to seek an increase of only about 200 agents for the new fiscal year, according to law-enforcement authorities and others, significantly short of the 2,000 per year authorized for each of the next five years in the recently passed intelligence overhaul bill." But that's okay, he has an (R) next to his name, so everything he does must be the right thing. Dream on. He's a politician and politicians are like snakes -- they bite. _____________________________________________
