Our own government has posted signs INSIDE our own borders, warning American citizens that the area is unsafe. Our government knows and admits that ILLEGAL immigrants are conducting human trafficking, drug wars and a myriad of other ILLEGAL activities right inside our own border! Yet, instead of solving the problem and protecting us, the Administration is telling Border Agents and American citizens to RUN AND HIDE!

At right, AZ Gov. Jan Brewer stands next to a sign that reads:


  • Active Drug and Human Smuggling Area
  • Visitors May Encounter Armed Criminals and Smuggling Vehicles Traveling at High Rates of Speed
  • Stay Away From Trash, Clothing, Backpacks and Abandoned Vehicles
  • BLM Encourages Visitors To Use Public Lands North of Interstate 8

Our own government is asking Americans to restrict our freedom, because the Administration feels free to not enforce their own laws.

The Majority Staff Report of the House Committee on Homeland Security has this to say:
"Not all illegal aliens are crossing into the United States to find work. Law enforcement officials indicate that there are individuals coming across the border who are forced to leave their home countries because of criminal activities. These dangerous criminals are fleeing the law in other countries and seeking refuge in the United States."
Since 2006, Mexican crime has left over 55,000 dead on the other side of the border. One of the border towns, Juarez, Mexico, is known as the "Murder Capital of the Western hemisphere." Yet in spite of these staggering numbers, our Administration wants to leave our borders open and our citizens unprotected. This crisis affects not only Border States like AZ, NM and TX; but also every state in the country. The FBI says that Mexican and South American gangs, along with their violence and drug trade, have spread to every single major US city. Our own Justice Department admits that Colombian and Mexican cartels bring in $18-39 billion in sales from the United States.

But gangs are not the only issue. The other, often overlooked problem is TERRORISM. In 2007 FBI Director Robert Mueller alerted Congress that "there are individuals from countries with known al Qa'ida connections who are changing their Islamic surnames to Hispanic-sounding names, obtaining false Hispanic identities, learning to speak Spanish and pretending to be Hispanic immigrants. Our administration has this information, knows the danger, yet does NOTHING to stop the problem or protect Americans.

Apparently, appealing to a specific minority voting block to get re-elected and defeat the American People is more important to this Administration, than actually doing their job and protecting our citizens and our borders.

Just last week, we reported that the Department of Homeland Security is telling Border Agents to run and hide. And road signs posted within our own borders tell American citizens to basically do the same.

When our own government warns us away from dangerous areas within our own country - dangerous areas that same government could, but won't clean up; we have a bigger problem than just the issue of Illegal immigration. We have either lost our freedom due to government incompetence or our current administration is simply in the business of actively giving our freedom away.

Run and Hide in the face of Danger” – DHS to Customs & Border Patrol Agents

Military and Law Enforcement Officials understand that desertion of your post is a serious and severely punishable offense. Yet new FEMA and DHS are officially sanctioning desertion and dereliction of duty by instructing agents to run and hide from danger.
The DHS’ new mandatory class, “Active Shooter” for Customs and Border patrol agents, instructs it’s on and off duty personnel to literally “run away” and “hide” and only engage dangerous suspects if all attempts to “Run and Hide” have been exhausted.

From the mandatory FEMA-administered computer course, entitled “IS-907- Active Shooter: What You Can Do,”

  • Evacuate: If there is an accessible escape path, attempt to evacuate the premises.
  • Hide out: If evacuation is not possible, find a place to hide where the active shooter is less likely to find you.
  • Take action: As a last resort, and only when your life is in imminent danger, attempt to disrupt and/or incapacitate the active shooter

Customs agents themselves are disgusted with new Federal instruction. Brandon Judd, leader of Arizona’s Customs & Border Patrol Union # 2544 wrote “We are now taught in an ‘Active Shooter’ course that if we encounter a shooter in a public place we are to ‘run away’ and ‘hide’ If we are cornered by such a shooter we are to (only as a last resort) become ‘aggressive’ and ‘throw things’ at him or her. We are then advised to ‘call law enforcement’ and wait for their arrival (presumably, while more innocent victims are slaughtered)."

CBP Agents know they are obligated to protect the whether they are on duty or not. Given the new instructions, some are worried they will be punished should they do their job and take down a gunman as in the cases of Ft. Hood or Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.

Another post by a CBP agent on the local Union #2544 website goes on to say “It is always comforting to know that for those of us who carry a weapon when we are off-duty, if we should encounter such a situation, stop a shooter and save countless lives, we can look forward to being disciplined or fired by the Border Patrol because we should have run away to hide and then maybe thrown objects at the deranged killer instead of taking action and stopping him with a firearm,”.

THIS IS THE AMERICAN BORDER and the force that keeps the bad guys out. Yet now our own Department of Homeland Security, ostensibly charged with keeping America safe, is telling enforcement officers to “run away”.

This isn't the first time DHS has issued boneheaded and downright dangerous policies. In fact, the night Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was killed, his team of BORTAC agents was following DHS policy when they fired bean bag warning shots at AK-47 armed Mexican bandits. Not surprisingly, the bandits fired back with live ammunition and Agent Brian Terry was killed.

Right here, right now, we have armed Gangs, Drug runners, illegal Aliens and even Muslim terrorists coming across our borders. Apparently DHS would just as soon let the bad guys in than do anything to stop them.

This sort of insanity MUST STOP. Our borders need to be protected, running and hiding or throwing bean bags won’t cut it. We need an active, engaged policy to protect America and her people!
