The Border Patrol’s main goal is to deport people who have entered the country without authorization, but on its own website, it shows places where illegal immigrants can seek refuge.
The “Frequently Asked Questions” section of the website states that the Department of Homeland Security has a sensitive location policy which means that, at some locations, agents can only interrogate, search or arrest in the case of an emergency or with a supervisor’s approval.
The purpose of making that information public may be to show that this agency respects places such schools, medical centers, and places of worship. However, by publishing this information, illegal border crossers know where to go to avoid prosecution making the job of the Border Patrol agents more difficult.
“So, almost any illegal alien can escape arrest by either walking with a second person (a march), attending some type of class, or finding a nearby church, medical facility or school bus stop,” the [Media Research] Center wrote in a post.
The web page also:
provides a toll-free number and email address to allow illegal immigrants to report possible violations of the “sensitive locations” policy.
The sensitive location policy reflects the lack of support for border enforcement by the current admiration.
“This administration has systematically and maliciously attacked and deconstructed all phases of border enforcement,” said Dan Stein, president of Federation for American Immigration Reform. “It’s to the point now where virtually nobody has to go home. ICE is no longer carrying out its core mission, of finding, identifying and removing illegal aliens from the country.”
A law enforcement agency should not give persons suspected of breaking the law information to avoid the consequences of their actions. This only encourages people to keep entering the country illegally; which in turn, affects the state’s security since it is becoming harder and harder to know who is entering the country.
