It has been a few years since I’ve talked and, subsequently, interviewed former USBP Supervisor David J. Stoddard (Ret). In my opinion–and that of many others–there really is no better information source than Dave for what is currently transpiring at and on our Southern Border.
David J. Stoddard BIO
US Border Patrol Supervisor David J Stoddard (Ret) was with the US Border Patrol for 27 years. David served in Calexico, California, Vermont, Yuma, Tucson Sector Headquarters and Naco, Arizona and worked in Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico and other locations.
Dave, also, provided testimony about immigration reform to Rep. F. James Sensenbrenner’s (R-WI) House Subcommittee on Immigration and Claims in 1999 and a Congressional subcommittee on Criminal Justice, Drug Policy and Human Resources in 2002.
Sher: Dave, it’s been a long time since we last spoke about the problems on our Southern border; problems that have recently reached crisis if not catastrophe mode for all US citizens. Thanks so much for your time, today. It appears that thousands of illegal immigrants including the drug cartels, human traffickers, Latin gangs Islamists and even their ISIS members are crossing our border at will, now, due to Obama’s illegal open border policy. Have you had Intel reports as to what’s really going on at what used to be our Southern border that you can share with the readers or been there, recently, yourself?
Dave: I live on the Mexican border and I get reports from other border residents in addition to what I observe myself. My contacts are rural residents, ranchers, Border Patrol Agents, sheriff’s and visitors. I can tell you, without equivocation, that border enforcement has been curtailed to such a degree that it is practically non-existent. But the non-enforcement phenomenon is also all over the USA.
Foreign national criminals have been released on the street after serving their sentences for major crimes. The recent admission from the Obama administration is that 38,000 illegal aliens were released in America instead of being deported. (If Obama broke to releasing 38,000, the real figure must be three times that number.) The lame excuse offered by Obama’s minion is that the law requires the release of those criminals. It may very well be that some of those criminals were Cubans or other nationalities that won’t accept their ex-patriot criminals but apparently no effort is made to repatriate those scum. John Kerry should be with-holding foreign aid, and taking other diplomatic measures to pressure those countries into accepting their citizens. The criminals from the Western hemisphere should have been entered into deportation proceedings and held as flight risks. But, Obama has stated that deporting aliens makes no sense.
The problem is not just with the Mexican border. The USA is importing Muslim extremists that establish enclaves in various locations, such as in Minnesota, Maine and Michigan where Muslims are granted refugee status and given taxpayer money, placed on the public dole, granted government housing and free medical care. In Minnesota the state is paying taxi fares for Muslims to keep medical appointments. These “immigrants” are not assimilating into American society. They are turning their enclaves into miniature versions of the hell-holes they “fled.” Take for example, Dearborn, Michigan where they observe Shari’a law and scorn every other law. In this day in age, we are importing a 5th column which needs to be monitored closely and not celebrated as examples of “diversity.” They hate all things Western except for the America dollar which flows to them so freely. We are witnessing a world-wide effort to establish a caliphate. How long until our imported Muslims make a move to force us into such a Caliphate? Someone reading this will scoff and think to themselves, “They are moderate Muslims and don’t present a danger.” The fact is, there is no such thing as a “moderate” Muslim.
Any self-professing Muslim who does not follow Allah’s command to kill the Jew and behead the infidel is an apostate Muslim and they are scorned by fundamentalist Muslims. But… do you see American Muslims rising up against the fundamentalists? I don’t. Silence is acquiescence.
I hope I adequately answered your question.
Sher: You did, indeed. And, although I am personally convinced all of this was planned and implemented by the Obama-Jarrett team in order to change the voting dynamics to Democrat, overwhelm the legal population and demographics in the United States and allow entry of hundreds and thousands of additional Muslim Brotherhood members, recently the White House actually took credit for “some” of the problem. As early as 2005, the Washington Times reported that the order for our USBP Agents to not arrest illegals coming across the border was given and continued the “stand down” orders through 2011 until the present day. Doesn’t that smack of intentional destruction of the country?
Dave: I agree that there are efforts to “fundamentally change America,” but I think those efforts started when Obama took office in 2008. He promised to change America. The day Obama took office, he brought Cecilia Munoz into the White House as policy maker. (Cecilia Munoz was President of the National Council of La Raza, a subversive, racist organization. Check their web site.) She has been making immigration policy ever since, although she has some other politically correct title.
The Border Patrol has been chained by politically correct politicians for decades. Border Patrol Officers are forbidden to go into cities where illegal aliens reside. They are forbidden to check employees and forbidden to enforce the law anywhere except in a very narrow ribbon of land that extends along our border from Brownsville, Texas to San Diego, California. And, even within this very narrow ribbon, enforcement must be politically correct and nobody can be offended. It seems that every seceding President issues more restrictions on immigration enforcement. There once was a time when Border Patrol Agents checked employees in factories, farms, ranches, hotels, restaurants and other industries that like to hire cheap labor. During that time, illegal aliens entered alone or with closely related males and didn’t bring their families because they knew they would only work for a short time before they would be discovered and deported.
Now that interior enforcement is dismantled, illegal aliens are bringing their extended families with the intention of remaining for as long as possible which turns into years and decades. Almost all of them want to retain their foreign nationality and identity. Their loyalty stays with their home country. There are a few exceptions to this rule, but it is a very small percentage of the illegal alien population. Progressives and democrats see this phenomenon as good and proper as there are far too many European centrists in this country and everybody knows they are racists even though they may not themselves realize they are racists. Progressives are always smarter that the average American and they know better than the rest of us. Yes, we are seeing the systematic dismantling of America as our founders and our fathers envisioned it.
Sher: The Obama syndicate refuses to protect the Southern border and the American people from this foreign invasion… and, like it or not, that’s precisely what is occurring. But, Obama’s not only allowing it, he’s actually encouraging foreign invaders to enter our land and–therefore–providing aid and comfort to the enemies of our country. Doesn’t he commit–by way of its definition–treason? What are your thoughts on this aspect of the issue?
Dave: When Obama put his hand on the bible during his inauguration, he swore to faithfully uphold the laws of the United States. Since that time he has ignored the Constitution, ignored the law and legislated through executive order. He effectively has by-passed the Constitution, congress and the courts and set himself up as dictator. Our cowardly politicians have let him get by with it. If Obama were white, he would have been impeached during his first term. I keep hearing liberal brain-dead operatives refer to “White Privilege,” whatever that is. If Obama has not been the beneficiary of “black privilege”, then Al Sharpton has Viking ancestry. Obama needs to be impeached at the very least.
Sher: As Obama and his entire syndicate seem bent upon the destruction of our country ASAP and refuse to adhere to the US Constitution or other US laws–and both Congress and SCOTUS appear to be supporting him due to fear for their own lives or concurrence ideologically–the only option I see is to physically remove him and his cabal from their respective office. I see no other viable option. What do you believe can be done to end this reign of terror by Obama & Co and begin to rebuild our country?
Dave: The easiest and cleanest solution is to impeach Obama and let that dumb-ass Biden serve out the term. Biden, as clumsy and intellectually challenged as he is, can’t possibly be as dangerous as Obama and his subversive handlers.
Sher: Dave, as always, thanks so much and we hope to talk with you again soon.
