Lmao no they don’t at, and the stats you are probably referring to “Mist confiscated drugs come through ports of entry” has been debunked by BP numerous times. They have repeatedly said that the vast majority don’t get confiscated and can’t be tracked BECAUSE they come through places Border Patrol cannot regularly patrol. JFC it’s literally common sense man. If we have so many drugs coming through, (not even enough to scratch the surface on supply and demand) then it’s getting over through ways we aren’t catching. That’s low flying aircraft, and unpatrolled areas of the border.
There aren’t unpatrolled areas of the border. There are less patrolled areas, but they will surveil with satellite.

The cartels have to get their product to a city, not to the middle of nowhere. That takes transportation. The roads there get watched closely.

And a wall won’t stop aircraft anyway.

The cartels find the easiest path. That is usually through a very busy checkpoint, where the sheer volume means stuff gets through. And they figure on a certain amount being seized...that’s just cost of business.

The idea that drugs are getting taken though holes in the fence is not rational. The BP knows where those are just like the cartels do.

JFC yours is some hypothetical **** you thought of, mine is from working closely with BP for years as well as working on the border for years. There is a **** ton of border that is not regularly patrolled. They make backpack bundles to transport the drugs across the border and then coordinate pick-ups in the Gila Bend area for transport to Phoenix for distribution. The Border Patrol has literally said what you just said is absolute bull****. That’s not opinion, it’s fact.

Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's (D-NY) far-left chief-of-staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, admitted in a recent Washington Post interview that the Green New Deal was not created to protect the environment, but to implement socialism.

The Post notes that the admission came during an exchange between Chakrabarti and Sam Ricketts, climate director for Washington Gov. Jay Inslee (D), who is a long shot running for president. The Post reports:

Chakrabarti had an unexpected disclosure. “The interesting thing about the Green New Deal,” he said, “is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all.” Ricketts greeted this startling notion with an attentive poker face. “Do you guys think of it as a climate thing?” Chakrabarti continued. “Because we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.” [emphasis added]

That is pretty funny, she tries to tell him what is legal, gets owned and just moves on.

The BP just ignores all these areas, and lets them smuggle whatever the hell they want to. Right? Come on.

The BP has cameras in all these areas, and it is shell game to see if the mules can outguess the BP and sneak through. It's not like they are just leaving open corridors. If YOU know that, the BP certainly does too.

You'll talk out of your ass on any subject won't you? Is there anything you don't consider yourself an expert on?

A textbook example of how not to cross-examine a witness.

The real danger with her, IMO, is her remarkable combination of charisma and ignorance. I’m inherently distrustful of people who argue something passionately while demonstrating how little they actually know about it.

She resembles Trump in that regard, except that he’s basically just trying to take back some of the ground that conservatives have lost in the past 25 years, while she’s advocating for a complete overhaul of our political and economic systems.

No they don’t. They don’t have the manpower and infrastructure to monitor those areas. They also are dealing with spotters on this side of the border to guide smugglers when and where to cross. Spotters are useless when there is a big ****ing wall there. Also with the wall comes the necessary sensors and systems to effectively monitor it. It’s not “just” the wall.

Yup the multiple tunnels under the border completely away from any checkpoints were just figments of our collective imagination.

EOD has more than once explained what's going on based on his personal experience and JG still continues to dismiss him like EOD has no clue. It's ****ing hilarious to watch play out.
