    Border Patrol Chief Abruptly Retires in Troubled Border Surge Sector

    by Ildefonso Ortiz
    27 Jun 2015

    MCALLEN, Texas — The chief of the U.S. Border Patrol Rio Grande Valley (RGV) Sector announced his retirement this week without any advance notice. The chief is stepping down from the top post in the same area that last year saw a humanitarian crisis as thousands of illegal immigrants and unaccompanied minors flooded across the border.

    This week, Sector Chief Kevin Oaks publicly announced his resignation. He relinquished the command of the more than 3,000 agents that he oversaw in this border region.

    “I would like to thank Chief Oaks for his dedication to mission and commitment to excellence,” said Michael J. Fischer Chief of the U.S. Border Patrol in a prepared statement provided to Breitbart Texas.

    Oaks replaced former USBP Sector Chief Rosendo Hinojosa who led the agency from 2010 to January 2014 when he retired from the force.

    During Hinojosa’s term leading the agency, agents began to see a shift in human smuggling routes that shifted much of the human smuggling traffic from western places like Arizona to the Rio Grande Valley setting up the stage for what became the humanitarian crisis during the summer of 2014.

    It was during Oaks time as chief that he tried to hold down the fort as the agency dealt with an ever increasing number of illegal immigrants primarily from Central America arriving at the border. This surge quickly overwhelmed the capacity of U.S. government housing facilities.

    Despite the urgency of the situation, Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson continued to claim that the U.S. Border was the most secure that it had ever been even. It wasn’t until Breitbart Texas released a series of photographs that showed dozens of unac children stuffed into small detention areas that politicians were forced to admit that there was a problem at the border.

    While no information has been released as to a reason for the retirement, the announcement comes at a time when the agency is starting to see a return of a spike in apprehensions at the border in what could be the start of a similar humanitarian crisis like the one that took place last year.

    While so far the number of apprehensions is below those from last year, various agents who spoke with Breitbart Texas believe that the recent spike is a sign that the border crisis could be starting up again.

    As previously reported by Breitbart Texas during the arrest of more than 140 illegal immigrants in stash houses in 24 hours, agents have begun to see an increase in apprehensions and in people getting caught at human stash houses. Just last weekend, agents arrested 47 illegal immigrants from Central America in a span of one hour just south of Mission Texas.

    In this case, like last years crisis, the immigrants crossed the river and turned themselves in to federal authorities expecting to be released shortly with a notice to appear in court.

    While I am suspicious of why Chief Oaks suddenly retires, I can understand why he may have had enough, too. Who would want to be in charge of processing illegal aliens' children that were deemed by one's own government as more precious that American children?

    America parents and grandparents, beware that is what is happening, your children treated as less precious than 15-16-17 year old MS-13 gang members! It makes me sick to see it, but it is what it is!

    In addition, publicly I see nothing happening to demonstrate that parent of school age children are aware that America's children are second rate in America's schools. That is very troubling for me, very difficult to understand?? My parents would have drove the school board over the edge. Matter of fact, one of the loudest adult public arguments I ever witnessed was Mom and Dad fighting with the school board over adding electricity to the building, an expense of about $300 as I recall. My folks were the only ones for it when the meeting started but after several hours, well, lights were installed yet before school started that summer. On school issues my folks were tenacious. Today I see only very small numbers of participants at school board meetings.

    Are present day Americans weak or slothful about civic duty? Or both?
