As border security expands,
complaints of abuse rise among Americans

McClatchy DC, by Tim Johnson

CHULA VISTA, CALIF. — A series of lawsuits filed in recent months in federal courts along the U.S. border with Mexico highlight what advocates say is a growing list of complaints against two U.S. agencies that have expanded rapidly amid the clamor to secure the nation’s borders. In one lawsuit, centered on events in Chula Vista, Calif., a Border Patrol agent is accused of leaping on the hood of a car driven by a mother of five and shooting her dead. She was unarmed. The agent had been fired from his previous job as a sheriff’s deputy for a variety

This is nothing more than the Libs crashing the system with all their bogus made up complaints.

Do they ever pay a price for lying...NO.

I say if you file a false complaint and it´s proven false, you HANG!

I think most of the complaints are baloney. Many Americans cross the checkpoints daily going into Mexico for a lot of reasons, mostly services. Americans go to Mexico for inexpensive dental work by Americans living in Mexico. People tell me that they park on the US side and walk over to the Mexican side where they are picked up and taken to the Dentists office.

The problem they are probably referring to are Mexicans coming through the checkpoints to the USA. A customs official told me that a person who lived next door to him in Chula Vista had a Mexican woman living in the garage next door during weekends and doing their house work. The next time he saw her coming over the border he stopped her and wouldn´t let her enter.

The checkpoints aren´t the problem. It´s the tunnels and the ones who cross the unfenced boarders by the thousands. This is a horrendous problem and the Administration and Congress won´t do anything about deporting them.

It seems an unarmed woman shot to death is pretty cut and dried. It also would be easy to prove the hospital incident. A good lawyer should be able to get the doctor(s) involved on assault charges.

False complaints by anti-enforcement activists alongside corrupt government agencies. And a complicit media. And that´s the recipe for soft borders and amnesty.

From my experience I´d believe any kind of bad behavior from these agents. As a blond female American I can´t tell you in this space how many times I´ve been hassled at the US border. I will say that one Customs agent who was particularly good at harassment is now in prison for drug dealing. They can do ANYTHING to you and there is nothing you can do about it. So don´t be too sure that these are false complaints.

A friend of mine is of Mexican descent, from a border town in Texas. He told me about Border Patrol agents that he had known since childhood harassing him repeatedly, many miles from the border. Why? Because they can.

You are always going to get complaints from a dynamic area like the borderline. These complaints show that the border patrol is doing their jobs.

This catalog of charges by people who are interested should be filed with their lawyer for their day in court before a disinterested and impartial judge. The public has no further interest.

When Alecia Phonesavanh heard her 19-month-old son, Bounkham, screaming, she thoughthe was simply frightened by the armed men who had burst into the house in the middle of the night. Then she saw the charred remains of the portable playpen where the toddler had been sleeping, and she knew something horrible had happened. Bounkham "Bou Bou" Phonesavanh, who is in a medically induced coma at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta, may never wake up.

Residents of El Paso, Texas, last week were struck by a deeply troubling sight. A billboard usually in the service of peaceful, commercial enterprise had been painted over with the ominous words “Plata o Plomo” — a familiar borderland phrase meaning “Take the bribe or take the bullet.” Dangling by a hangman’s noose beneath the billboard was a mannequin in a business suit. From a second billboard another mannequin was similarly hanged.(Snip) The “drug war,” while targeting far worse substances as well, is primarily about weed.

A couple of weeks ago, I put up a post about the absurd method in which the drug laws allow law enforcement officials to determine the quantity of an illicit drug for which a suspect can be charged. The laws aren’t written to punish offenders for the amount of a given drug they have made available to the public (or, put another way, for the amount of harm they have done). They’re written to inflict the maximum possible amount of punishment.(snip) A Texas man accused of making and selling marijuana brownies is facing up to life in prison if convicted.

Her name, like that of nearly all the victims, is unknown. Not older than a teenager, she has large, downturned eyes, long and wavy hair, and pale skin. She wears a demure white dress, suggesting that the life she lived before she found herself in this dungeon was one of innocence. She stares through the bars of her cage and, because she cannot save herself, prays for rescue. Behind her, a man wearing a bowler hat and a lascivious grin gazes upon his captive prey through the smoke of his cigar. He has paid to rape her and she is

Pueblo West, Colo. – It’s 9:00 A.M. on a weekday, and I’m at the Marisol Therapeutics pot shop. This is serious business. Security is tight. ID checks are frequent. Merchandise is strictly regulated, labeled, wrapped, and controlled. The store is clean, bright, and safe. The staffers are courteous and professional. Customers of all ages are here. There’s a middle-aged woman at the counter nearby who could be your school librarian. On the opposite end of the dispensary, a slender young soldier in a wheelchair with close-cropped hair, dressed in his fatigues, consults with a clerk.

ProPublica reporter Nina Martin has written a long and exceptional article about a disgraceful case in Mississippi that touches on two issues we’ve recently covered here at The Watch — the persecution of women accused of ingesting drugs while pregnant, and the dubious expertise of longtime Mississippi medical examiner Steven Hayne. Rennie Gibbs’s daughter, Samiya, was a month premature when she simultaneously entered the world and left it, never taking a breath. To experts who later examined the medical record, the stillborn infant’s most likely cause of death was also the most obvious: the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck.

The Obama administration quietly announced on Tuesday that it intends to change the way Americans learn about natural disasters and other major emergencies during radio and TV broadcasts, giving the president the ability to flip a switch and address the entire nation at once. The Emergency Alert System, the latest version of a program first established in 1951, blasts out emergency messages in the event of local weather emergencies, but can also be used to warn Americans about terror attacks and major natural disasters.

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School. They’ve just learned they will no longer be allowed to buy Chick-fil-A

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that
