This is a chilling interview with Retired Border Patrol Officer Zach Taylor about the surge of illegals coming across the U.S. border right now. If you haven’t watched the interview, read this transcript:
My name is Zach Taylor. I’m a retired Border Patrol officer. My main job was understanding and having intelligence capabilities about drug smuggling across the U.S. border and human smuggling across the U.S. border to bring contraband and people into the United States. That’s what I did for twenty-six years.
National security is a component of the immigration laws and the reason that immigration officers exist. Because the immigration laws are designed to primarily do just two things: protect national security and public safety.
The component of national security is the economy and American jobs because the foundation of American society, which is the family unit, depends on jobs and the economy for their livelihood. On the other side is the public safety, which includes public health.
And that is so the people will be secure in their persons and their property from outside-source threats. In other words people coming in to take over American by force or by subterfuge.
Right now, Department of Homeland Security is in charge of – through Customs and Border Protection – the apprehension and collection of the illegal aliens. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is in charge of the screening with the U.S. Public Health Service. I’ve never seen the CDC or the U.S. Public Health Service work together with the Border Patrol at the border ever.
The agents are telling us that they’re seeing some people who are obviously sick with shivering-type illnesses, with possibly dehydrating illnesses like diarrhea and vomiting, but those people are disappearing.
We don’t know what they have, where they’re going, or where they’re taking them. Surely they’re being quarantined somewhere. We just don’t know where. And even the agents don’t know what the diagnosis is of these illnesses.
Tie that in with the fact that these people can come through almost anywhere in the world and are funneling into Mexico and we already know there’s epidemic levels of certain diseases in Mexico and Central America. We don’t know if these people are showing these diseases – if they’re even being screened for them.
The real troubling part of this is we know that in West Africa right now there’s an Ebola outbreak that does not meet the parameters of communicable diseases. Normally, Ebola virus starts in the jungle and moves into an indigenous population in the jungle and then from there into a larger population area.
What they’re experiencing in West Africa in three countries right now is an Ebola outbreak in three separate cities at the same time. This is very unusual. It is almost as if the virus was planted in those three cities to infect that population. In other words the virus is working in the reverse of what it has historically. Before it moved from the jungle into the populated area. Now it’s starting in the most populated areas in those cities and working through the population.
If we had a controlled event – I’ll give you an example. The Border Patrol has a drug smuggling operation and they’ve been surveilling it. And after the car loads up and takes off, we stop the car and the person driving the car hands us a diplomatic passport saying they’re a diplomatic alien inside the United States, we stop right there. We call the Department of State.
The Department of State takes it from there. The person is not prosecuted. Yes, we may or may not seize the vehicle and the drugs. The United States public never knows that happened. That’s a controlled event.
In this situation, where you have hundreds of thousands, literally, of people coming across the border and you’re only catching a small fraction, if you’re not telling the public that 80-90 percent of what’s coming across the border is not being apprehended and you’re putting their focus on this ten percent that is being apprehended only showing them the one percent that are six-, eight-, ten-years-old and appeal to the compassion of the American people and not show them the people with these serious communicable diseases, the fact that they are known gang members. They have the gang tats all over them.
Because they do not have a conviction in the United States, they’re turned loose free in the United States. We don’t know when CDC takes custody of one of these people from Homeland Security and whisks them off somewhere – we don’t know where – what disease they have been diagnosed with.
We know it’s communicable. We assume it’s serious. But that is being kept away not only from the agents in the Department of Homeland Security, it is part of the controlled event where America doesn’t realize how serious the threat is and they’re only being shown the compassionate side of the situation – that one to two percent of those 160,000 that appeal to the compassionate side of the people of the United States. What the people don’t realize, that it is putting their own children at risk because these children are gonna be put in schools with their children.
This administration and past administrations have not lived up to enforcing the rule of law with regards to national security and immigration laws. The reason we’re having the press of the Central American minors is because this particular administration has invited them to come here.
The problem as I see it – and apparently because Centers for Disease Control, Health and Human Services, and Department of Homeland Security are trying to make this a controlled situation – they’re anticipating a large national crisis. When you see that FEMA is preparing for 200,000,000 deaths in the United States, that tells you something. When you see that the government is controlling the supply of ammunition and that basic medical supplies are in short supply in southern Arizona, something’s wrong. They are anticipating something drastic.
If they had enforced the law, if they didn’t force the immigration law and if they had expeditiously removed these people that came here – this group of minors – they would have dealt with the situation. The way they are reacting to it is facilitating and inviting more of the same. So what they’re doing is making a bad situation much worse.
The real reason these people are probably coming here from ann intelligence point-of-view is to mask or draw attention away from something else that is happening. Since the United States government is encouraging this, it is something that the United States government wants to happen.
They have significant CIA, FBI, Department of State, Homeland Security, Army, Navy, Marines, Coast Guard – you name it – in Central America right now – have been there a long time. They know what’s going on. We’re not doing anything to stop the obvious threat.
Two years ago, I became acquainted with a person that lives in Mexico City – have complete, total confidence in this person as an informant, he’s beyond reproach – and he told me when I asked him – I was concerned about two things -a nd that was the trafficking of human organs in Mexico and the extreme violence – the beheadings and dismemberments that were going on in Mexico.
Now understand this person is pretty much an unbiased observer that has almost unlimited access to all levels of both government and society in Mexico. Without hesitation, he told me that the most influential drug – criminal – organization in Mexico City at that time was the Russian Mafia. And through other sources I knew that they were a very important component in Ecuador and in the tri-border area in South America. So when you start to think about the dynamics of what’s going on in Mexico, think transnational criminal.
Think of people beyond Mexico. Think beyond Central America and think of criminals, period. The reason they come to the United States is because this is where the money is.
The agent is much more afraid of his own government than he is of the transnational smuggler because they’re not only messing with the agent’s pay right now, they’re telling him to run away from an assault. You know if somebody wants to fight, leave them alone. Don’t shoot at anybody.
They just told the local Border Patrol here that they’re not going to get any ammunition for their rifles until 2015. What’s that about? They’re not gonna have any practice ammo for their CAR-4’s until 2015. Well that’s over a year away. FY2015 starts in October 2015. So what is it that the Border Patrol agents aren’t gonna get where historically the Department of Homeland Security used to buy ammunition for the Border Patrol by the boxcar load.
Off-camera interviewer: You’re saying the Border Patrol agents in the Tucson Sector have to ration their ammunition for the next 14-15 months?
They can’t use it. They’re doing zero accountability. In other words, they can’t shoot any of it and it’s being accounted for round-for-round. The rules are you have to qualify, demonstrate proficiency at a minimum level with each firearm that you’re authorized to use: handgun, shotgun, rifle. When the agent is – one – not allowed to maintain his basic proficiency with the firearms that he uses and train with them on a quarterly basis, he is less proficient.
If he is less proficient and doesn’t have access to ammunition, he’s less likely to take that firearm into the field and have it available should he need it. That raises the risk level to the individual agent because the purpose of having the superior fire force is to deter someone from attacking you.
The whole idea of asymmetrical warfare is to defeat your enemy from within. It is not to attack him from without. Of course the threat comes from without, but they have to be inside of the United States to effect a successful warfare strategy.
If asymmetrical warfare is going to be successful, the first thing that has to be done is to compromise America’s defense against invasion because they have to have their personnel inside the United States to affect the infrastructure – our hospitals, our schools, our electric grid, our power supplies, our water supply – basically what we call infrastructure. All of those things create – are – infrastructure. But they have to effect the degeneration from inside the United States.
The markers that we’re seeing that indicate this is asymmetrical warfare is because the reaction that the United States is taking is they’re taking the opportunity of inviting these illegal aliens to come here.
They’re concentrating them in one place in the United States – the Rio Grande Valley – and they’re drawing the resources that are protecting the rest of the United States border to care for the illegal alien children, to help with the overflow of the minors, to transport, to take care of the needs of these people while they’re in Homeland Security custody.
All this takes the resources that are protecting America at the border off of the border. So now the borders are wide open. This gives the people that are trying to get their infrastructure, their personnel, their drugs, their dirty bombs, their biological weapons, their chemical weapons into the United States without being noticed because this part of the border is open. It is not being patrolled.
It is a perfect military strategy. It doesn’t raise any eyebrows because we’re focused on the children, but we need to focus on our children because this is asymmetrical warfare. Everything says it is. And the way the United States government is responding to it is concealing that fact from the American people. In other words, they’re assisting in the downfall of America. And you need to understand that.
ZACK TAYLOR, the President of the National Association of Former Border Patrol
-OR- the (NAFBPO),
is warning us with a first hand, very knowledgeable loud and clear voice that these gangs and diseases
are being allowed to freely flood over our borders with no end in sight, and that they impose a very real and deadly threat to our families…
You have to beg the question, why is our government allowing this to happen when we have all the resources readily available to end it.
Three out of the four terrorists of 9/11 were illegal immigrants.
There are many Growing examples of terrorism caused by illegal immigrants to where as
most of these terrorists don’t target the more complicated hard targets, but instead go after the softer ones that will cause more collateral damage.
