“On the 28th of last month, the United States celebrated the 100th anniversary of the founding of the U.S. Border Patrol. According to the website of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the Border Patrol was established ‘for the purpose of securing the borders between inspection stations. In 1925 its duties were expanded to patrol the seacoast.’ If there is anything everyone in the United States can agree on, it is that during the past 100 years, the Border Patrol has failed to fulfill its mission. Today, everyone agrees that the Border Patrol has failed to prevent the illegal entry of people into the United States and especially on America’s southern border. Yet, for immigration statists, hope springs eternal.” (06/05/24)
