I keep hearing, “but we have to give him time……we have to take it slow…..”

Sorry, but there is no excuse for this.

It can be fixed with a one sentence executive order.

President Donald J. Trump is allowing former President Barack Obama’s “catch and release” of illegal immigrants to continue deep into his administration’s term with no end in sight to the controversial open borders protocol. Border Patrol agents are once again sounding the alarm and alerting the public about the separation between DC’s rhetoric and the realities on the U.S.-Mexico border — a practice that the agents hoped would become unnecessary under the Trump Administration.
Though Trump’s interior enforcement of U.S. immigration laws has resulted in far fewer illegal crossings at the border, agents say that low numbers will not be sustained because the Trump Administration has not actually made substantial changes within border security as a whole.

Border Patrol Agent Brandon Judd, President of the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC), spoke with Breitbart Texas on Trump’s quiet continuation of Obama’s catch and release. He stated, “Obama’s catch and release is definitely continuing and our government is releasing illegal aliens into U.S. communities. The steps taken for such releases have slightly changed and the numbers are not as high, but it is still occurring. Under Trump, ICE [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] is holding more illegal aliens than what they did under Obama, but make no mistake, ICE is still releasing a good number of illegal aliens into U.S. communities. Americans need to know this.”

Though Trump ordered catch-and-release to end and despite claims from the Justice Department that the protocol is now over, the data show that it simply has not ended. One news site touted the program as over, yet further reading in the same article shows it was simply reduced a bit. That news site, The Daily Caller, wrote:

Data from the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) at Syracuse University reveals that it is indeed a “new era.” Records obtained by the group show that 61 percent of immigrants given NTAs under Trump were detained, compared to 27 percent detained under Obama. These are for cases as of the end of March, as immigrants given NTAs under Obama have yet to show up in court.

Border Patrol Agent Judd cautioned against media spin on the issue. He stated, “Again, Americans need to know the facts here. They need to know that a decrease in the numbers of illegal aliens released does not mean the program is over. Outlets or leaders making such claims only serve to reduce the accurate information that Americans need to make decisions.” Agent Judd continued, “Illegal aliens are being released into U.S. communities just as they were under President Obama.”

    Trump needs to fire a shit-load of folks.

    He’s gonna have to “break the mold” of entrenched bureaucracy (which is precisely what is obstructing him now) – and do it without destroying the foundation upon which it was based: The Constitution & Bill of Rights.

    He’s not going to do this in 100 days – or even 500 days. But I still believe he CAN and INTENDS to do so, if for no other reason than because of the wholesale sabotaging of his Administration since he took office.

    We The People (who elected him) can help him by vocally and aggressively challenging his attackers AT EVERY TURN, e.g. the head-carrying scrunt who just got fired by CNN for her tasteless Trump-head video, the Fake News, etc.

    Yeah .. this means We The People are going to have to stop being the Silent Majority and get off our complacent asses and make our presence known and our voices heard in ways that the MSM cannot ignore or spin. Surely we can find peaceful, effective ways to do this?

    BTW: The popular (and near-instant) blowback from the AFAA(?) advertising thing with Fox/Hannity is a perfect example. Notice how QUICKLY they back-peddled and resumed advertising after they got SWAMPED by complaints from military personnel and families?
