Illegals Using Torches and Saws to Break Into U.S.
Posted by Joshua Price on April 14, 2008
Illegal immigrants armed with torches, hacksaws, ladders and even bungee cords are making it around a section of the border fence hailed as the most efficient way to stop them.
In the 10 months since the section was put up, the only method federal agents haven’t seen is a tunnel — “Yet,” said Victor Guzman, the supervisory Border Patrol agent responsible for the stretch of close-together 15-foot cement-filled steel poles planted three feet into the ground.
Agents responsible for guarding the stretch of border here “almost immediately” started seeing cuts in the fence. The towering gray and rust colored posts are marked with bright orange spray paint in areas believed to have been breached, Guzman said.
Guzman, who has worked in the area for nearly a decade, said agents have found holes cut with acetylene torches, hacksaws and even plasma torches — a high-powered tool that uses inert gas or condensed air to quickly cut through steel and other dense metals.
The story continues:
Officials monitoring cameras in the area have seen at least one group using a massive ladder to scale the south side of the fence. The group tried to drop into the U.S. with bungee cords before agents caught them.
So what does this tell us? Well first of all, this is nothing new. What it means, however, is that the illegal invader will stop at nothing, including killing our border patrol agents, to gain access to this country.
The illegals are willing to use any- and everything to attain their goal of sneaking in here illegally.
This means that we too must be willing to use whatever means necessary to prevent more illegal invaders. We must recognize that the illegals have no constitutional rights.
Until we match the intensity and effort that the illegals are exhibiting we will never effectively secure the borders.
