    DHS tells American border guards to run away from illegal immigrants hurling rocks at

    DHS tells American border guards to run away from illegal immigrants hurling rocks at them, fleeing in vehicles

    Top administration officials have directed 21,000 border patrol officers to retreat whenever illegal immigrants throw rocks at them, and to avoid getting in front of foreign drug-smugglers’ vehicles as they head north with their drug shipments.

    “Agents shall not discharge firearms in response to thrown or hurled projectiles… agents should obtain a tactical advantage in these situations, such as seeking cover or distancing themselves,” said the instructions, issued Mar. 7, under the signature of Michael Fisher, chief of U.S. Border Patrol.

    Agents were also directed to keep their weapons holstered when drug smugglers drive by.

    Agents can’t use guns against “a moving vehicle merely fleeing from agents,” say the instructions.

    The new instructions do allow agents to use guns to defend themselves from vehicles that drive at them. “Agents shall not discharge their firearms at a moving vehicle unless the agent has a reasonable belief that… deadly force is being used against an agent,” the new instructions say.

    However, the instructions also suggest that officers be penalized if they don’t step back. Agents “should not place themselves in the path of a motor vehicle or use their body to block a vehicles’s path,” according to new instructions.

    The new curbs were praised by advocates for greater immigration, including Juanita Molina, director of the Border Action Network. New Jersey Democratic Sen. Robert Menendez, and Democratic Rep. Zoe Lofgren, according to the Los Angeles Times.

    Menendez is one of the drafters of the June 2013 Senate immigration bill, which would boost the inflow of legal immigrants and guest workers up to 40 million over the next decade. During the same period, roughly 40 million Americans will turn 18.

    The new rules were issued at the direction of Jeh Johnson, the new head of the Department of Homeland Security.

    The rules match the recommendation of a report by an advocacy group that wants to reduce policing of illegal immigration.

    The report by the Police Executive Research Forum was commissioned by DHS, and it said border agents should be barred from standing in front of smugglers’ vehicles or from shooting at people who are attacking them with rocks.

    The commissioned report was challenged by mid-level DHS officials, who argued that the rules barring self-defense from rock-throwers “could create a more dangerous environment [especially for agents operating] in rural or desolate areas, often alone, where concealment, cover and egress is not an option,” according to a report in the Los Angeles Times.

    But Johnston overrode the internal response, and forced the implementation of the advocacy groups’ recommendations.

    The PERF report was commissioned by top DHS leaders after advocates said law-enforcement agents had killed roughly seven people a year along the 1,933-mile border in 2010, 2011 and 2012. The shootings came during 67 clashes with a huge stream of armed drug-smugglers and illegal immigrants.

    Three U.S. border guards have been killed in recent years, including one who was shot during a clash with drug smugglers carrying AK-47 assault weapons.

    In a Friday news conference, Fisher told reporters that agents would be equipped with short-range tasers and pepper spray, plus medium-range pellet guns, to deter attacks.

    But he also admitted that agents have been attacked 6,000 times since 2007. They’ve been “assaulted by rocks” 1,713 times since 2010, and have responded with deadly force only 43 times, he said.

    The agents killed only 10 drug-smugglers and other attackers during the same three-year period, Fisher said.

    DHS New Border Policy: Run Away, Hide, Don’t Shoot at Criminals

    DHS New Border Policy: Run Away, Hide, Don’t Shoot at Criminals


    Posted on 9 March, 2014 by Rick Wells



    More evidence has emerged that B. Hussein Obama and the rule of law have difficulty coexisting. New instructions from the Department of Homeland Security to agents of ICE, particularly the Border Patrol, must have agents beside themselves, wondering how to respond and about their career choice.
    DHS announced on Friday that the new policy for their 21,000 border patrol officers instructs them to run away when presented with an illegal alien throwing rocks at them and to stay out of the path of drug-running vehicles.
    The new policy dictate, issued by Border Patrol Chief Michael Fisher, states “Agents shall not discharge firearms in response to thrown or hurled projectiles… agents should obtain a tactical advantage in these situations, such as seeking cover or distancing themselves.” That translates into don’t shoot, just hide or run away. If it weren’t so absurd and serious it would be laughable.
    Agents are also instructed to keep their weapons holstered when smugglers drive by. No instructions were given as far as waving or blowing a kiss, which may be optional, at the discretion of the officer or smuggler.
    Additionally, the new instructions forbid agents from using guns against a moving vehicle that is “merely fleeing” from agents. The border agents, for the time being, are still allowed to defend themselves if a vehicle is driving at them and they simply can’t find a place to hide or can’t get out of the way.
    DHS Secretary Jeh Johnston, a proponent of amnesty and liberal immigration who seems to be on a mission to erase the border is the source of the new policy.
    An advocacy group, the Police Executive Research Forum was commissioned by DHS and returned a recommendation in line with the desires of the Obama administration.
    In what seems to have been a solution looking for a crisis to remedy, the PERF report was commissioned by DHS upper management in response to the killing of approximately seven criminals over the last three years.
    Mid-level DHS officials challenged the report, arguing that the banning of self-defense from rock-throwers “could create a more dangerous environment [especially for agents operating] in rural or desolate areas, often alone, where concealment, cover and egress is not an option,” as reported by the Los Angeles Times.
    Johnson overrode the challenge and ordered the policy to be implemented.
    Somehow it is deemed by those who are supposed to be in charge of securing the homeland that running away from criminals like scared schoolgirls is going to enhance national security. While the very real potential is there for Border Agents to take a rock to the head, at least the criminals are protected.
    Adding insult to potential injury, it was announced in the Friday news conference that the Border patrol would be issued short-range tasers, and pepper spray, as well as pellet guns with which to deter attacks.
    That should make Border Patrol agents feel much more secure knowing that they have a kid’s toy to use against automatic rifles.
    Documenting the restraint already exercised by Border Patrol agents, Michael Fisher, Chief of U.S. Border Patrol acknowledged that of 6,000 attacks upon Border Agents since 2007, including 1,713 by rocks, they have responded with deadly force only 43 times.
    An unnatural progression seems to be at play here, going back to the Compean and Ramos kangaroo court trial and imprisonment under the Bush administration, to Brian Terry to this new policy.
    DHS seems to be placing a lot of emphasis on creating a safe, open border in which the criminal activity is being conducted. It almost seems like the smugglers are working for DHS; or maybe the other way around.

    ForAmerica

    The Obama administration has instructed border guards to run away from illegal aliens who throw rocks, keep weapons holstered when drug smugglers drive by, and not to block vehicles.

    In short, Obama has surrendered our border to drug dealers.

    Outrageous: Check Out the New Directive Preventing 21,000 Border Patrol Agents From Defending Themselves & the Order Forbidding Them From Interdicting Smugglers’ Transports!


    TODAY'S NEWS
    By Joe Calandra Jr.
    19:05 am March 12, 2014

    This week, the U.S. Border Patrol Chief, Michael Fisher, issued a new order that leaves his 21,000 agents virtually defenseless against potential illegal immigrants and drug smugglers, reports The Daily Caller.
    The instructions, issued on Mar. 7, states:
    “Agents shall not discharge firearms in response to thrown or hurled projectiles… agents should obtain a tactical advantage in these situations, such as seeking cover or distancing themselves.”
    The directive also tells DHS border guards that they must, “keep their weapons holstered when drug smugglers drive by.”
    To make matters even more complicated, they aren’t allowed to open fire on any “moving vehicle merely fleeing from agents,” which includes drug smugglers’ cars and vans/trucks carrying illegals.
    In short, the instructions explicitly prevent agents from using their guns to defend the U.S. border, saying they can only use their firearms if their lives are in jeopardy, arguing:
    “Agents shall not discharge their firearms at a moving vehicle unless the agent has a reasonable belief that… deadly force is being used against an agent.”
    Drug Lords and human traffickers are surely rejoicing with news of this component in the new orders too:
    “Agents should not place themselves in the path of a motor vehicle or use their body to block a vehicle’s path.”

    Things not adding up at DHS


    ALERT: New Border Patrol instructions and Homeland Security’s ammo purchases don’t add up. Take Action! Demand Congress to DEFUND and DISMANTLE the police state!
    Conservative American,
    A new report reveals that the captain of U.S. Border Control has now instructed border agents to essentially retreat from illegal aliens and drug smugglers.
    The Daily Caller’s Neil Munro writes:
    “Agents shall not discharge firearms in response to thrown or hurled projectiles… agents should obtain a tactical advantage in these situations, such as seeking cover or distancing themselves,” said the instructions, issued Mar. 7, under the signature of Michael Fisher, chief of U.S. Border Patrol.
    Agents were also directed to keep their weapons holstered when drug smugglers drive by.
    Agents can’t use guns against “a moving vehicle merely fleeing from agents,” say the instructions.
    The new instructions do allow agents to use guns to defend themselves from vehicles that drive at them. “Agents shall not discharge their firearms at a moving vehicle unless the agent has a reasonable belief that… deadly force is being used against an agent,” the new instructions say.
    However, the instructions also suggest that officers be penalized if they don’t step back. Agents “should not place themselves in the path of a motor vehicle or use their body to block a vehicles’s path,” according to new instructions.
    This said, why on earth is the same Department stockpiling ammunition?
    Things aren’t adding up.
    Border agents have arguably the most dangerous job in all of federal law enforcement and if they are being told to refrain from using lethal force on the job, then for what reason is Homeland Security hoarding mass quantities of bullets?
    Congress has got to answer this question, and it’s an outrage enough that they haven’t put this issue to bed already.
    We’ve got to demand that every round purchased by the DHS be accounted for. We need to know exactly why Homeland Security is sitting on more ammunition per officer than the U.S. Army!

    2.5K Rounds per DHS Officer
    According to a new GAO report, the Department of Homeland Security is planning on buying an massive amount of ammunition over the next four years.
    The report shows that Obama’s DHS is contracted to purchase a total 704,390,250 rounds through fiscal year 2018!
    David Maurer, the report’s author, says this means each DHS officer will receive approximately 2,500 rounds per year for the next four years, totaling at 10,000 rounds.
    (Already this month the DHS placed an order for tens of thousands of sniper rounds — more on that below.)
    But it’s not just Homeland Security, other agencies are becoming more and more militarized under Obama’s watch. On January 31, even the United States Postal Service placed an order for ammunition!
    As Conservative Action Alerts contributor John Whitehead says:
    “[W]hy do domestic agencies having nothing to do with national defense, such as the Postal Service, the Department of Education, the IRS and the Social Security Administration (SSA), need mass quantities of ammunition and weaponry?”
    Sadly, We the People can’t answer this. We have no idea why these purchases are being made and what the federal government is preparing for.
    This is why we must continue to demand that U.S. lawmakers begin to defund and dismantle the police state!

    DHS Solicits Sniper Ammo
    The Department of Homeland security is looking to add 141,000 rounds of sniper ammunition to their current stockpile.
    According to fbo.gov, the DHS placed an order this month for approximately 7,058 boxes of Hornady .308 Win 168gr A-MAX TAP Ammunition – rounds that the manufacturer calls its “most accurate … sophisticated boattail hollow point.”
    And these rounds aren’t the federal government’s economical option either; consider the following comment from James Smith:
    “Hornady ammunition is not for the budget minded, and the Federal government will pay a premium price for their sniper ammunition: approximately $1.20 for each round, when they can get a lower grain .308 round for as little as $0.69 for a 147 grain .308 round …”
    These costly purchases prove that Homeland Security has not discontinued its ammunition stockpiling even though the Department already possesses hundreds of millions of rounds. It also paints the DHS’ claim that the bullets are used for “training purposes” to be a sham seeing that hollow-point bullets are not used for exercises.
    Looking at the bigger picture, Obama’s militarization of the DHS is right in line with his goal of building a non-military “national security force” – the one he referenced when he said the following in his 2008 campaign:
    “We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”
    If this is the case, Congress has got to defund these purchases immediately.
    It’s important that we contact members of the United States Congress right away and demand that they investigate these purchases and begin to defund Obama’s police state!

    More Ammo per officer than the U.S. Army
    In a special committee meeting last year, Rep. Jason Chaffetz pointed out that the Department of Homeland Security – at that time having roughly 260 million rounds – possesses more rounds than the United States Army per capita!
    “Based on Homeland Security’s allocation of 1,300 to 1,600 rounds per officer,” said Rep. Chaffetz. “Homeland Security officers used roughly a thousand rounds more per person, or, per officer, than the average Army officer …”
    Here are a just few of the DHS’ ammunition solicitations from that fiscal year; see here, here, here, and here.
    The DHS’ Transportation Security Administration is also being armed even though, at least under current policy, TSA agents inside airports currently carry no weapons.
    Last August, the TSA solicited 3,454,000 rounds of .347 caliber ammunition.
    Government Security News reported that, with such a stock, “the TSA could fire off more than 9,400 rounds per day, every day of the year, to consume that entire quantity annually.”
    Again, this solicitation was made for “training purposes” …
    These numbers just don’t add up. Why does the DHS need, as a whole, more ammo than the U.S. Army – the constitutional arm of the federal government created for our defense? And why do unarmed TSA agents need to stockpile enough “training” ammo to fire-off 3,321 20-round boxes per week for an entire year?
    Whether the Executive Branch is simply purchasing excessive amounts of ammunition for back-door gun-control – viz. evaporating the ammunition supply – or for more sinister reasons, it’s absolutely necessary for Congress to take action and intervene!

    DHS to track License Plates, Cars as they Drive
    Barack Obama’s Department of Homeland Security is also ramping up its efforts to use your tax dollars to further destroy privacy.
    The DHS’ latest initiative is to build a centralized license-plate database through gathering data from license plate scanners that collect and store information off of vehicles as they move.
    This type of surveillance system, if adopted, would allow the federal government to track us whenever and wherever we drive.
    “Ultimately, you’re creating a national database of location information,” says Jessica Lynch of the Electronic Freedom Foundation. “When all that data is compiled and aggregated, you can track somebody as they’re going through their life.”
    Make no mistake, this program is nothing more than a data-collection tool for Big Brother and just the latest example of how the American police state is being built in front of our very eyes.
    We’ve got to call on Congress to pull the plug on this privacy-killing program and start working to defund and dismantle the police state now!
    As you will see below, it’s clear that Barack Obama’s promise to “fundamentally transform America” is well under way …
    Take action now!

    Interment Camps for American Citizens
    February 19 marked the seventy-second anniversary of Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s infamous Executive Order No. 9066 that incarcerated Americans of Japanese descent.
    While this event is a fact of the past, it’s a necessary reminder that the Constitution and the Bill of Rights have been overturned in our nation’s history for the sake of “the emergency” — it is also a reminder of the power of the executive order.
    Shockingly, Justice Scalia suspects the federal government will likely bring back 1942-style internment camps for Americans… he recently told law students in Hawaii that “you’d kidding yourself if you think the same thing will not happen again.”
    “It was wrong, but I would not be surprised to see it happen again in time of war,” said Scalia this month. “It’s no justification but it is the reality.”
    While we aren’t suggesting a round-up of Americans is currently in the works, we do know that the American Police State has undoubtedly grown stronger under Barack Obama — the new champion of Executive Orders — and Americans are necessarily concerned.
    This is why we’ve got to demand Congress to start taking action, asking questions, and begin to defund and dismantle the expanding police state!

    A Fundamentally Transformed America
    Some of our Nation’s founders rightly warned against “standing armies,” having the memory of King George III’s continental troops and their tyranny fresh in their minds.
    It was James Madison who said that, “A standing military force, with an overgrown Executive will not long be safe companions to liberty.”
    Sadly, it appears that Barack Obama’s “fundamentally transformed America” includes such a force… made of non-defense executive departments and agencies.
    While it is true that all branches of government have encroached upon our God-given freedoms – the Congress and the Courts both playing a part – America’s overgrown Executive is chiefly to blame.
    Through executive orders, actions, memoranda, and other forms of “executive legislation” Barack Obama is turning America into a police state.
    Last year we saw Obama’s full-blown attack against the Second Amendment, and just last month we saw him recommit himself to a “Year of Action” without Congress.
    How much longer will Congress – a separate, but equal power – allow the Constitution and the Rule of Law be trampled by Obama and his hired men?
    As Obama has declared himself as an enemy of the Constitution, it’s time for principled lawmakers to start stopping him and his lawless agenda!
    The House and the Senate must take action against Obama’s dictatorship by fully defunding and dismantling his police state programs!
