Last week the senate passes landmark immigration reform bill that by all indications will not survive the house of represented -- They want -- draft a bill with greater focus on securing the border with Mexico.
There's a documentary it's a remarkable documentary and it's called they come to America to.
It gives us a glimpse of what parts of the border look like now.
In this part of the world we don't have a lot of tourist attractions but this is one of whom -- Emergency distress beacon.
And most people find it curious that it's in three languages English Spanish and Chinese.
And since last time we're out here they've.
Even -- -- to -- a five gallon bucket of water.
Courtesy of the United States -- I have a question.
Why do you think that -- should be down along the border and Texas.
Written in English.
Written in Spanish.
And in Chinese.
The government made that.
Congressman Argo Group yes I mean you've been congress between two different right -- has anybody -- showed -- that picture before tomorrow.
Nobody's ever nobody -- nobody don't that's when he hearings and said look at this picture out.
Joining me is the producer of the documentary Dennis Michael lynch Dennis this is a remarkable.
Very much for joining us to talk about thank.
You've been down on these borders you've talked to the agents who work there are so this is not something that you just seen pictures have.
You have physically been there for extended periods of time.
What are they telling you especially in light of the immigration reform bill -- yeah I mean I worked alongside them I.
Night time morning time all the time.
It is so dangerous.
-- that border and you don't see that on television because -- usually don't go there.
And what they're saying isn't that they can't do their job.
I'm did not given the resource is that they need they're not giving the support that they need.
And they're very -- -- they're not allowed to speak to the press they're not allowed to speak to the people.
They want to say hey listen this is what's coming through and everything is coming through what is -- -- -- down well you just saw as an abundance of Chinese and why that's very Chinese and I didn't know we bordered China I guess that's a new one for me I -- vast geography but yeah.
What does that mean Howard Chinese coming across the Mexican border you know I would joking about it but it's it's very very serious because.
As I asked congressman king if I had -- of drug cartel members.
Or Chinese nationals what don't you want to get through and he said the Chinese nationals and the reason being is because the Chinese nationals.
They could create a -- 9/11.
And I witnessed 9/11 first hand and I was like yes and I ran for those buildings.
A cyber 9/11 would make that day look simple.
I mean we're talking about shutting down our air traffic control or shutting down the electric grid on the East Coast this country would not be able to get through that sort of thing.
So the fact that we're allowing -- to come through the border in fact marketing one on one make -- signs -- some people get -- read them right so we have that.
I'm finding I'm catching sixty people at a clip with the Border Patrol agents and mixed -- Our people from the Middle East.
And you know it doesn't take a lot for Mohamed to transform himself into Miguel and that's what they do they try to blend in -- they get through and governor.
Even at the Border Patrol catches twenty.
The other forty getting through he said that with three things that that need to be done.
-- -- -- Three things that need to be done to stop these people right OK number one things wills there's no will to stop the people you -- throw.
And could zillion dollars at this problem unless you have will forget about it.
But if -- -- the president of the United States.
Right I'd walk off the set right now and I call up the National Guard based on what I've seen coming through the border.
And I happened down there now.
And while they're down there I would build a double fence because all the areas in the country that have double fencing.
They've they've limited that the crossings by 95%.
So you got will you've got National Guard and you got a double facts when you get those threes things in order.
You'll you'll be safe this and it would argue that they're built.
Puts billions of new dollars and 20000 more Border Patrol agents on the -- so what's not to laugh.
I go about -- first of all that bill is one of those things we have to read the same page over and over again -- like what is it just saying.
I makes no sense okay so again I go back and that the money thing is not it.
I'm in places in Arizona right now.
Where you have one border agent standing on a ten mile stretch right outside a drug cartel.
And yet we've got 200 border trucks sitting in the parking lot.
If this is not a matter of money.
This is a matter of seeing.
Immigration law protects the American worker that protects the American life and right now the government is just saying well you know if it happens to what happens -- -- -- I'm very sorry.
That's not that's not leadership that's not what these people voted for.
Eat what is the worst thing that you have personally seen at the border that ought to scare the rest of us out of our pants.
I've seen the fact there's nobody stopping people from coming over.
And that is this a Border Patrol issued -- -- they want to stop them.
This is of course they want to stop and they wanna do their job nobody enters the world of law enforcement so this way they can turn there to vent their idea the way.
OK we have a forty mile stretch of the Rio Grande to see this in the film forty mile stretch.
We have to Border Patrol boats traveling together.
RK forty miles -- as I'm going down its drug cartels out of the drug cartels -- -- groups -- guys just coming over.
And when you see my film were on capturing these people.
That's a hundred miles into Texas -- The majority of people are getting through so when President Obama and -- -- -- and even the -- elevate say about how whether or not -- the borders more secure than ever before.
I'm sorry that's that's not the truth it's not my film proves it well maybe they'll.
Maybe they'll watch it they better -- of -- welcome back on as.
