Amnesty Trail Remains Open
Citizens Document Border Patrol Failure
||American Patrol Report -- March 31
It was tagged "Amnesty Trail." Hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens followed it to "amnesty" in the United States. The Strategic Border Initiative was supposed to plug the hole at the border. Just as we predicted, it failed.
Now citizens are documenting just how bad things really are.
On Friday, March 28, these brave citizens used a thermal camera to document the flood of invaders. See this video (video now converted to Windows Media format).
Their report not only shows the flood of probable illegal aliens, it documents how negligent the Border Patrol is in apprehending these people.
"The degree of betrayal of the people of the United States has never seen an historic equal," said Glenn Spencer of American Patrol.
