Driving along this morning, on our way to do something important, and we get waylaid by two large groups of illegals who step out of the brush, begging to turn themselves in to pretty much anyone coming along. Today it was us, but they'd have surrendered to a county road crew had one come along first.
So we get jammed up, and every Border Patrol agent in the sector has to come and help search, transport and process them. This means no border patrol checkpoint and no scrutiny on the rest of the border for hours. But 91 people up from Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua all got free rides to the border patrol station, free food, and after processing, mpost will get free transportation to anywhere in our country that they want to go, right along with a notice to reappear in immigration court in Tucson in a few months. None of them will show, of course. They don't respect our courts or our laws any more than they respect our border or our land, which they trashed thoroughly right in front of us. We gave them bottles of water. They drank the water and just threw the bottles on the ground and we had to pick them up ourselves. After they we gone, we found where they's camped last night and it looked like a garbage truck had dumped clothing, food containers, water bottles and other debris in the wash that they'd been in. It's noteworthy that Mexico has offered them asylum and jobs but they've refused that because they wanted to come to the land of the golden food stamp. And here they are. At least three were pregnant, and a few of the men, when asked for identification, presented their official notices of deportation from the last time they were here. That's how little fear they have of any meaningful consequences for returning after being deported before.
