Blunder: Migrant Climbs Tree, then Sets it On Fire

Obviously South America isn’t sending their best and brightest to the border.

Immediately after one illegal alien crossed the U.S southern border, he destroyed property. And I’m sure you’ll find this hard to believe, but this guy was previously deported.

You would think if he truly wanted asylum, he would make half an effort to present himself as an upstanding individual. But I have a feeling law-abiding isn’t his cup of tea.

The incident took place Friday evening, after Yuma Sector Border Patrol agents discovered footprints leading from the international boundary just east of the Andrade, California’s port of entry.

The mile-long trail led the agents to a man who just illegally entered the U.S. from Mexico.

News and Tribune elaborates:

Agents radioed for a CBP Air and Marine helicopter to assist and it responded a short time later. The agents tracked the suspect for almost a mile until he was encountered near a tree. The male suspect climbed up into the tree, set it on fire, and began to throw rocks at agents on the ground as well as at the CBP helicopter. None of the agents nor the helicopter was struck.

The subject eventually came down from the tree and was taken into custody. He was determined to be a 31-year-old Honduran national illegally in the U.S. The subject told arresting agents that he had been part of one of the migrant caravans that had been covered by the media in Mexico recently. He was transported to the Yuma Central Processing Center. The Winterhaven Fire Department responded and extinguished the fire.

During processing, the subject was found to have several previous arrests in Florida as well as a previous deportation from the U.S. on June 4, 2018. The subject is being presented for prosecution and removal proceedings.

Oh the irony.

First, is this really the person Chuck Schumer and his fellow misguided representatives want to stick their necks out for?

Next, the man set fire to a tree, while he was in it!

How can the liberals be on this guy’s side? After all, he set fire to a tree. Where is a tree-hugger when you need one? Don’t they have some group like “People for the Ethical Treatment of Trees?”

And last, but certainly not least- if you’re capable of fighting this hard to get into the U.S., why not fight for your own country? At least then you’d be flying the right flag.

Here’s a message to illegal aliens coming to America: if you don’t want to be deported, don’t come here illegally.

Further, if you don’t want to be separated from your kids, don’t use them as pawns to illegally gain access to America.

And last, it’s never an idea to attack the police in this country.

Assaults against Border Patrol and ICE agents hit a new high in 2017. And the tension of 2018 only made those numbers surge even more. In fact, it seems migrants these days aren’t looking to flee. They’re looking for a fight.

According to the Washington Post:

The new numbers, reported by Homeland Security’s inspector general, could even be underselling the problem, investigators said, because the government doesn’t do a good job of tracking incidents, and agents and officers don’t always report them properly.

But the report does signal renewed danger particularly on the southwest border, where agents say a surge in illegal immigration in recent years generally correlates with growing violence.

Prosecutors, meanwhile, often refuse to bring charges or win cases against the perpetrators, the audit found.

At the border, the most frequent method of attack was projectiles — usually large rocks — which accounted for half of assaults. But bombs, clubs, knives, guns and even laser pointers to blind agents have all been used.

These reports echo Obama’s war on police. However, Trump proves he’s not going to sit idly by and allow these violent outbursts as his predecessor did. Trump doesn’t care if he needs to send 10,000 troops with just as many bottles of tear gas.

Trump’s message never waivers. If you wanna climb up a tree and set it on fire, you might as well get burned.
