BORDER PATROL THREATENING TO REVOKE CITIZENSHIP OF AMERICANS

Rate this Entry

A reader sent me this news article quoting Joseph Giuliano, deputy chief border patrol agent in Washington State. The article notes

The parents who entered the country illegally
are still required to attend their court date and go through
deportation proceedings, he said.


The mother and daughter from Guatemala were released because the father, who was in the car with them, is a U.S. citizen.

Giuliano said Border Patrol agents confiscated $600 of illegally harvest salal from the family.

If the mother and daughter don't show up for their court date, the father can lose his citizenship, Giuliano said.

This is SO incorrect it is laughable. And it is an abuse of power to make this kind of threat. The Border Patrol needs to issue a correction and an apology.

    In my experience, ICE officers are woefully ignorant of immigration law. The way they see it, their job is not to worry about legal niceties, but to lock up and deport as many people as possible. I'd have to guess the incentives for CBP are the same.

    These people abuse their power at will and there is nobody that is regulating them or making sure that they do not commit abuses with innocent people.

    Ok, first off, I doubt Giuliano actually said that. More likely is that the media misquoted him. Many commentators have claimed that USCIS, ICE, CBP and Border Patrol are incompetent in immigration law. The media is far more incompetent than any organization I have yet to cross in the Government. I mean, come on, there was a recent, big news article about Border Patrol guarding against bugs. On the ABC webpage was a huge photo of a Customs and Border Protection agriculture officer. Blue uniform - green uniform, pretty much a glaring clue. How about the articles concerning the subject with a hugely contagious strain of tuberculosis that was allowed to enter the country despite a CDC directive to stop him. Border Patrol was blamed for that and the person came through a port of entry. Border Patrol doesn't work the ports of entry.

    I don't know about ICE, but I do know a lot of Border Patrol agents and Customs and Border Protection officers who live near me. They know more about immigration law than most immigration attorneys I've met.

    ICE and CBP isn't there to arrest people and remove them from the country for the purpose of arresting and deporting someone. THESE PEOPLE HAVE NO RIGHT TO BREAK THE LAW. THEY ARE CRIMINALS. THEY HAVE NO MORE RIGHT TO ENTER THIS COUNTRY IN VIOLATION OF LAW THAN A THEIF DOES ENTERING YOUR HOUSE. Grow up.

    I used to be very neutral towards immigration until I started studying the facts. The facts will clearly show, to any one that can read them dispassionately, that illegal immigration costs a lot of money, services and is a huge detriment to the fabric of society. Fixed sums of money have to be distributed among an illeaglly enlarged pool of students when it could be focused on the sons and daughters of citizens and legal immigrants. Inflated crime, vehicle insurance, accidents, public service commitments, etc. People are afraid that if the police report illegal aliens to immigration the aliens will stop calling for police. Fine, I could use thsoe police officers patrolling the streets of my subdivision and dealing with the problems in my neighborhood. My taxes paid their salary, not some illegal alien's.

    Do you want the ambulance picking up an illegal that has the flu or your father that is having a heart attack?

    If 6 police officers can get away with a slap on the wrist when beat up an handcuffed man, then surely Border Patrol can get away with intentional lies. The law is always on their side, why the surprise? Remember that President Clinton could get away with lying under oath. This is how the system works.. lying is what politician do for a living. It is not like hiring a prostitute, that could end your career in a blink, lying is okay.

    Of course, it is entirely possible that it is the journalist who lied.

    Alleged remarks by a Border Patrol manager threatening any American with loss of Citizenship are a form of State Terrorism and need to be investigated in depth. This Border Patrol manager needs to be put on immediate Administrative Leave until an investigation is completed.


    There needs to be an immediate official and non-partisan outside investigation of Giuliano's alleged remarks and, if found to be true, then he needs to be immediately fired with loss of Pension, and he needs to be criminally charged under whatever Statutes may be applicable.

    In my opinion The Border Patrol are Lying Scum who couldn't care less about the Bill of Rights or the US Constitution and are part of an ever-expanding Police State apparatus inside our country that is increasingly turning it's guns on American Citizens, abusing us with impunity. They are conditioning Americans to "Obedience to Authority" and they are professionals at misrepresenting themselves and their legal authority as they stop and interrogate people and illegally search vehicles, not just at the Border but throughout America.

    The Border Patrol, ICE and Homeland Security need to be brought to heel, as they are a Clear and Present Danger to our American Way of Life and to the ideals of the founders of this Nation.
