The latest instance of our federal hypocrisy is occurring

Ukraine for the purpose of securing their border with
Of course, that is a tactic that only works outside of North America. On our continent, border fences are mysteriously ineffective. At least, that is what those who are supposed to be protecting our nation have repeatedly told us.
Fences still function just fine at prison facilities, warehouses and military installations. There’s even a security fence for some
strange reason around the White House. But they would never work to keep people from crossing our open border.
The concept of border fences is so “foreign” to our federal government that whoever typed the notification even misspelled the
word security. It was probably a subconscious thing, with them just unaccustomed to seeing that word in such close proximity to
the word “border.”
The notice describes this as “urgently needed” assistance to the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine. Maybe they’ve got Russian
children trying to break into their country. Those Ukrainians are just wasting America’s money trying to secure their country if
that’s the case. We all know there is no way to stop determined children. Once they’ve made their mind up to break into your
country, there is no option but to build detention centers, find them homes and throw money at them.
If the Ukrainians are lucky, they’ll just have to guard against the Russian military. Fencing has a chance of working if they are only trying to keep out armed foreign soldiers.

Patriots From All Walks Of Life Stand Up For Liberty

HOUSTON, Texas — A group of illegal aliens and their smuggler started a massive grass fire on a ranch in South Texas after being pursued by agents from the U.S. Border Patrol. The fire began at the end of a chase when the car carrying the illegal aliens left the roadway in what is known as a bailout. The car came to a stop on some dry grass and caught fire from the heat of the exhaust system as the occupants scattered into the brush.
The fire began on the La Copa Ranch which is located just south of the U.S. Border Patrol’s Falfurrias Checkpoint. This is an area known for illegal immigrants being smuggled to be dropped off to sneak around the checkpoint. Border Patrol agents were pursuing three suspicious vehicles in the southbound lane of Highway 281 when one of the vehicles left the roadway and got stuck in the soft sand according to Brooks County Sheriff’s Deputy Elias Pompa. “The tall grass in the area had recently been cut,” Pompa said. “It was very dry and quickly caught fire.”
Temperatures in the area have been reaching over 100 degrees this week and twenty to thirty mile-per-hour winds have been blowing from the south and west. “The fire quickly spread to about 200 acres,” said Brooks County Chief Deputy Benny Martinez. “Firefighters from Falfurrias and several surrounding agencies are working hard to quickly attempt to contain the fire. Some of the fire trucks and firefighters traveled over 100 miles to help Brooks County.”
“At this point it is not believed that any homes or structures are in danger,” Martinez told Breitbart Texas, “but that could change quickly.”
The illegal aliens who bailed out of the vehicle that started the fire were quickly rounded up by Border Patrol Agents. It is not known, however if other immigrants might be already trekking through the ranchlands in their attempt to bypass the checkpoint. It would be difficult for them to move out of the way of the fire if they end up in its path.
This year, 48 illegal immigrants have died from dehydration and exposure in these ranchlands south of Falfurrias.
