U.S. Officials Draft Foreign Border Proposals While Ignoring American Border Crisis

borderWhile border security in the U.S. takes a back burner under the Obama administration, it appears to be considered a crucial part of securing law and order in foreign countries. According to the Jerusalem Post, American officials drafted a border security recommendation for Israel’s eastern border if that nation decides to pull out of the Jordan Valley and fully cede the West Bank to Palestinian control. This proposal offers the Jewish nation state-of-the-art border monitoring technology which would be complimented by Israeli and Palestinian security patrols on both sides of the border.

“The research and details of the plan were overseen by Gen. John Allen, a Marine four-star general who had commanded U.S. forces in Afghanistan. Its implementation was designed to span a number of years during which Israel would maintain both an overt and covert presence in the territories.

As part of the plan, the Jordan Valley frontier would be outfitted with sophisticated surveillance and tracking technology on both the Israeli and Jordanian sides of the boundary.

In addition, Israeli and Palestinian security force would conduct separate patrols in designated areas of the West Bank until the latter proves its effectiveness in keeping order on their own.”

Israel said, “thanks, but no thanks.”

Considering the chaos on the United States’ southern border, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that one of the most at-risk nations in the world quickly dismissed the notion of American involvement in their border situations. While the Obama administration turned its head and allowed 527,127 individuals to overstay their visas in FY2015, Israel continues to place the security of its citizens as their top priority by enacting and enforcing common-sense immigration standards and keeping their border secure.

This proposal also begs another question: Considering our U.S./Mexico border is subject to daily violence from drug cartels and the presence of dangerous criminal aliens illegally entering the States, why won’t the federal government implement these kinds of security standards for our own boundaries?

    This just further illustrates what liars so many of our politicians are when they say that we can’t physically secure our borders. I don’t think much of any government official that finds it acceptable to allow all of the drugs, violent criminals, people with contagious diseases and potential terrorists to continue to stream into our country. No person with any character or civic values would allow all of this to come into our country on a daily basis.

        Actually the county sheriffs in Arizona say the drug cartels have established footholds in that state. NBC has shown border surveillance videos of drug mules moving into the country at night. There are signs at some federal nature areas in Arizona warning people not to leave the main roads because of drug gangs in the area.

        TB was close to being wiped out in this country before the large waves of illegals. Hello? How do you check people for contagious diseases, like they did at Ellis Island, if they are avoiding the authorities.

        Are you claiming that with enough personnel and double layer fencing on the border that we can’t secure the border? Answer that yes or no. No endless babbling and avoiding the point, just yes or no.

        Sounds like No Change is afraid that if Trump is elected President he will be deported and then he won’t be able to climb over Trump’s new border wall. I know for me one of the highlights of a Trump Presidency will be the deportation of No Change.

  2. Trump Sums It Up Correctly

    We’ve wasted $5T losing wars in the Middle East, meanwhile our infrastructure is crumpling.
