Earth to Feds — it’s called camping [Darleen Click]
Our southern border is functionally non-existent, and Obama is poised to granted “refugee status” to illegal aliens pouring over that border.
Meanwhile, some members of the Border Patrol are busy protecting the Canadian/Us border in Alaska from shutter-happy Boy Scouts
While the Obama administration has begun looking into ways to ensure safe passage to the United States for Honduran children, federal officials have reportedly harassed an Iowa Boy Scout Troop seeking to enter Alaska through Canada.
Jim Fox, leader of the Mid-Iowa Boy Scout Troop 111, told an Iowa television station one of his scouts took a photo of a Border Patrol official and agents immediately leapt into action. “The agent immediately confiscated his camera, informed him he would be arrested, fined possibly $10,000 and 10 years in prison,” he said. Fox alleges one agent drew his pistol and pointed it a scout’s head after the scout attempted to retrieve luggage from the top of the van in which the scouts were traveling.
A statement obtained from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency denied that the agent had pulled a gun on the Iowan Boy Scout.
First off, the camera seizure and threats were bogus from the start. The agent has no expectation of privacy while in public and on duty.
However, the lengths at which Government officials want to scare-ify any object outside the realm of the comfy chair zooms into parody …
The Border Patrol agents also inquired as to why the scouts were traveling with excessive amounts of lighters, matches, and knives, Fox News reported. Eventually, all of the scouts arrived back home in Iowa from their 23-day trip, but not without much stress and consternation. “We’re going to present our country in this manner: that we’re the bullies and we’re going to tell you what to do to protect your safety,” the troop leader told the Iowa television station. “These kids are going to turn.”
