It's Not Just Measles; DUI's Ok If You're An Illegal Too


Oh c'mon...... America, you will put up with this?
The Obama administration has ordered federal agents responsible for protecting one of the nation’s busiest and most crime-infested regions near Mexico to stop apprehending drunk drivers, according to an internal government memo that also concedes an officer that elects to detain them is “acting within the course and scope of his employment.”
Obtained by Judicial Watch this week, the notice is titled “Enforcement Options With Alcohol-Impaired Drivers” and directs the 4,000-plus U.S. Border Patrol agents in the Tucson, Arizona sector to “release” individuals under the influence and “allow them to go on their way.” The document acknowledges that this feels counter-intuitive for Border Patrol agents, but eases concerns by answering a hypothetical question for the officers who have sworn to uphold the law: “If you allow this driver to continue down the road and they kill someone, aren’t you liable?” The answer is no, according to the new Department of Homeland Security (DHS) memo. “There is no legal requirement for a Border Patrol agent to intervene in a state crime, including DUI,” the order says, adding that “therefore there is generally no liability that will attach to the agent or agency for failing to act in this situation.”
So now in addition to kids coming into the country carrying disease (which is probably how the measles outbreak got going and spread, as the CDC has admitted) we now have documentary proof that DHS has been ordered to release illegals that are caught driving while intoxicated.
Oh, if you think this is a "rare" situation, you're wrong.  The sector in question recorded nearly 88,000 apprehensions last fiscal year along with seizure of nearly a million pounds of weed.
But heh, if you're an American and get busted driving while intoxicated, well, you're going to jail and will be forking up ten grand or more, lose your license for a year, lose your job, and forevermore have a nice big black mark on your record.
If you're an illegal invader?  Be on your way sir, and have a nice evening!
