In typical Obama disdain for the Laws of Our Country two separate things on the BP website have been set in motion.
The first can be found in the following Fox News spotlight. Your tax dollars at work! On its website, the Border Patrol, demonstrating extreme sensitivity, describes designated “sensitive locations” to help illegals live in the United States without “fear.”
US Customs and Border Patrol website currently carries the following STATEMENT:
Do the Department of Homeland Security’s policies concerning enforcement actions at or focused on sensitive locations remain in effect?
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) have each issued and implemented policies concerning enforcement actions at or focused on sensitive locations. The ICE Sensitive Locations Policy and the CBP Sensitive Locations Policy dated 1/18/2013 (http://foiarr.cbp.gov/streamingWord.asp?i=1251) remain in effect, and these FAQs are intended to clarify what types of locations are covered by those policies. ICE and CBP conduct their enforcement actions consistent with the Department of Homeland Security’s November 2014 memorandum, which prioritizes the removal of national security, border security, and public safety threats.
So even though congress and judges have made known that enforcement should be following federal laws not any of Obama’s or DHS’s unilaterally unlawful directives, it appears that not one thing has changed if the government website is correct.
The second thing is even more troubling and I found it as I researched this information.
CBP Announces Expansion of Global Entry to Colombian Citizens
Release Date: July 27, 2016
WASHINGTON—U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced today the expansion of Global Entry to citizens of Colombia. Global Entry, a CBP Trusted Traveler Program, allows for expedited clearance of pre-approved, low-risk travelers. Colombian citizens can begin applying for Global Entry through the Global Online Enrollment System (GOES) website. Colombia becomes the first country in South America and the eighth country overall whose citizens will be eligible to enroll in Global Entry.
“CBP is excited to expand our partnership with Colombia by offering our flagship Trusted Traveler Program to Colombian citizens,” said Commissioner R. Gil Kerlikowske. “We’re confident that together, CBP and Colombia can enhance security and facilitate travel between our two countries and together transform the international arrivals process to make it more secure, efficient, and welcoming.”
Currently available at 49 U.S. airports and 13 Preclearance locations, Global Entry streamlines the international arrivals process at airports for trusted travelers. Global Entry members bypass the traditional CBP inspection lines and use an automated kiosk to complete their admission to the United States. The program has enrolled more than 3.1 million members, and CBP receives approximately 100,000 new applications for Global Entry each month. As an added benefit, Global Entry members are also eligible to participate in the TSA Pre✓™ expedited screening program.
U.S. citizens, U.S nationals and U.S. Lawful Permanent Residents may apply for Global Entry as well as citizens of certain countries with which CBP has trusted traveler arrangements, including Mexico, the Netherlands, Panama, the Republic of Korea, Germany, Singapore, the United Kingdom and now Colombia. Canadian citizens and residents enrolled in NEXUS may also use the Global Entry kiosks.
The non-refundable application fee for a five-year Global Entry membership is $100 and applications must be submitted online. Once the application is approved, a CBP officer will conduct a scheduled interview with the applicant and then make a final eligibility determination.
While the goal of Global Entry is to speed travelers through the process, members may be selected for further examination when entering the United States. Any violation of the program’s terms and conditions will result in appropriate enforcement action and revocation of the traveler’s membership privileges.
CBP continues to maximize its resources to support a 16 percent growth in international air arrivals since 2009. CBP is working to bring advances in technology and automation, such as Automated Passport Control kiosks, the Mobile Passport Control app and I-94 form automation, to the passenger processing environment while exploring public-private partnerships to help support current and future mission requirements.
Am I being delusional or what have I slept through? Hasn’t Columbia figured prominently in cartels and gangs?
How are these incompetent, overburdened, or cowed agents going to decide if a “Criminal” is truthful? Idiots. I can see it now. Agent to online applicant ” under penalty of law are you being truthful? Applicant types yes, turns and packs his guns and dope inside a religious book or religious relic box. Then hands it and the global pass to his “puppet” who just happens have the same name as typed on the pass. um hmmm.
How is there enough “trusted” travelers there in Columbia or most countries recently for that matter? Prejudicial preferential treatment for those with the deepest pockets no doubt. Not only that but they get a faster processing and bypass TSA upon entry? Online applications only, seriously! How does anyone determine truthful in cyberspace? Who can guarantee the actual live body using the passes if they are not seen in person with identification in hand? How many blogs, articles, congressional hearings have we seen in the last six months alone highlighting TSA inadequacies, violations, and inabilities of agencies to monitor or apprehend those planning to do harm to our homeland?
Just this past October a Saudi Prince was arrested for a large shipment of drugs in his plane. Then there are reports of well over a million Visa holders, including student visas, unaccounted for within our borders in a 2015 report to Congress. A battalion of army personnel would be hard-pressed to securely check every person entering any given airport. TSA ain’t nearly that good.
Seriously 3.1 Million enrolled with as many as 100,000 requests per month!
Who is responsible for putting these requests through and approving? It surely can’t be TSA because they can’t even account for their own agents reliability and background check. It can’t be the airports themselves because they are too busy being politically correct to see anything, pandering to a certain religion, and trying to control their own employees and finances.
Now apparently it can’t be the very ones who are mandated to exist for just that purose- ICE or Border Patrol- because we see the evidence of the orders on “safety area” locations.
No friggin’ wonder we are not able to monitor incoming bodies. Man is there going to be a reckoning one day after January 2016 when hopefully Obama, Hillary and their entire crew of zombies are deleted like Hillary’s emails.
This really highlights Obama’s determination to force “open borders” and reduction of national security protection. Our enforcement personnel apparently are now following international directives NOT our own laws. Yet par for the course little is heard from mainstream media on any of this.
