Border Patrol Ordered to Fall Back from “Too Dangerous” Sections of U.S-Mexico Border

Cochise County Sheriff Larry Denver made this startling charge in an interview you can read at CNS News. If true, this means the government is ordering Border Patrol to cede vast swaths of the border to cartel paramilitaries and their Marxist allies. The reasoning is that it’s too dangerous and worse, may cause an international incident if more shootings happen:

( – Sheriff Larry Dever of Cochise County, Ariz., one of four Arizona counties contiguous with the U.S-Mexico border, said Friday that the U.S. Border Patrol has pulled back from parts of the border in his and neighboring counties because manning those areas has become too dangerous.

“And you frankly have Border Patrolmen–and I know this from talking to Border Patrol agents—who will not allow their agents to work on the border because it is too dangerous,” Dever told in a videotaped interview. “Now what kind of message is that for crying out loud?”


Dever said there were places where the Border Patrol had pulled back from the border in his county and in neighboring areas both in Arizona and New Mexico.

He pointed out that in Pinal County, 70 miles north of the border, the Bureau of Land Management has put up a sign along a drug smuggling corridor to warn American citizens away from the region because it is too dangerous. provided Customs and Border Protection with a transcript of Sheriff Dever’s statement about the Border Patrol pulling back from parts of the border in his area because it is too dangerous.

“There are areas down there in the Tucson Sector where for officer safety reasons, officers aren’t up on the line. For whatever reason–it may be a remote area,” said a CBP spokesperson. “We still have the means to detect entry, whether it is a sensor or a scoped vehicle. So the entry is detected, but the apprehension of the undocumented migrant isn’t affected until they reach a safe area.”

If the border to our country is not a “safe area” it is the Federal governments job to make it safe, no? How far back will U.S. forces have to move before people realize our country is in grave danger?
