No DREAM Act until Border is Secured!
|Glenn Spencer -- December 17
It has now been confirmed that Rick Oltman's report that U.S. Border Patrol Brian Terry agent who was murdered three days ago, was given "bean-bag rounds" for his weapon is true.
The American Patrol Report has just learned that the order came from Tucson Sector Chief Manjarez, before he was removed from the job. According to a well-informed former agent, Terry may have been able to save his life had he been issued real ammunition.
It is an outrage that our government would have such little regard for our border patrol that they would put their lives at risk because of Political Correctness.
It is also an outrage that the Senate of the United States would even consider giving amnesty to one illegal alien so long as our government allows millions to flood across our border.
