    The ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) asked the U.S. Border Patrol to stand-down during Hurricane Harvey. They say the agency’s refusal to close checkpoints during the storm puts illegal aliens in grave danger.

    Texas is refusing to close Customs and Border Patrol checkpoints during #HurricaneHarvey, putting undocumented families in grave danger.
    10:13 AM - Aug 25, 2017

    As reported by Breitbart Texas, officials with U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced Thursday afternoon that Border Patrol checkpoints in South Texas will remain open during the storm event predicted to hit the Texas coast on Friday evening or early Saturday morning. The hurricane has been placed in a Category 3 or 4 range.

    “Border Patrol checkpoints will not be closed unless there is a danger to the safety of the traveling public and our agents,” CBP officials wrote in a statement obtained by Breitbart Texas. “Border Patrol resources, including personnel and transportation, will be deployed on an as needed basis to augment the efforts and capabilities of local-response authorities.”

    “The Border Patrol is a law enforcement agency and we will not abandon our law enforcement duties,” officials stated. “If there is a time when we have to unite with our emergency preparedness partners to evacuate community members, we assure you that we will act quickly ensuring that the safety of those requiring evacuation remains paramount.”

    Gary VanNess, a liturgy and youth coordinator at Our Lady of the Holy Rosary Catholic Church in Mission, Texas replied to @ACLU on Twitter:

    The U.S. Border Patrol operates two major inland checkpoints south of Corpus Christi, as reported by Breitbart Texas:

    The Falfurrias Checkpoint is located in Brooks County about 80 miles north of the Mexican border with Texas on U.S. Highway 281. The Sarita Checkpoint is located in about the same position on U.S. Highway 77 in Kenedy County. The two checkpoints are located along major arteries of drug trafficking and human smuggling.

    Mexico has very little impact from the hurricane. After Katrina, illegals swarmed into Louisiana and Texas using the confusion as cover.

    Yes, they did. They also swarmed in to grab the jobs of rebuilding after that hurricane.

    They were being brought in by the busloads.

    I heard that they were also brought in by the ship loads across the Gulf.
