border patrol

Pop quiz.

What’s the difference between a member of a nefarious drug cartel and an American citizen with a mountain bike?

Answer: An American with a mountain bike can be assessed a $5,000 fine for accidentally crossing the US/Canadian border, while a cartel member can traipse his way into the U.S. and apply for food stamps the very next day.

In a story fit for the twilight zone, DHS has fined both an American and a Canadian a whopping $5,000 for “failing to report” when they mistakenly made their way into the U.S. after a long mountain bike ride.

After being stopped by a border patrol agent with mountain bikes and biking gear in hand, a 40-year-old American and his 44-year-old Canadian friend were assessed the fine under 19 USC 1459.

Meanwhile, a few thousand miles to the south, thousands of illegals pour over the border and are given de facto amnesty by the commander in chief with nary a slap on the wrist.

According to a press release from the border patrol:

Questioning by the agent revealed that the two suspects illegally entered the U.S. from Canada…Subsequently, both males were arrested for violation of U.S. law and transported to the Rangeley Station for further processing.

Following database verifications, Border Patrol agents turned over both subjects to CBP officers at the Coburn Gore port of entry for assessment of fines and penalties.

If you just threw up a little bit, you’re not the only one.

The disparity between how these men were treated and what happens to illegals everyday who are picked up illegally entering the country only to take advantage of the welfare state is sickening.

It’s a well-known fact that the illegals who come to the U.S. are never given fines like this. Instead, they’re issued a notice to appear and given a court date four years out.

Stu Harris of the National Border Patrol Council Local 1929 told Infowars, “They know they are going to be processed and released and they are free to go wherever they want to go in the United States and the likelihood of them ever showing up for their court date is slim to none.”

As Infowars writer Kit Daniels noted, “Of course, when it comes to illegals entering America who are eight times more likely to vote for Democrats than Republicans, they’re not fined but rather pampered with free food, shelter, medical care, and bus tickets to anywhere in the nation.”

It’s maddening.

The liberal democrats have orchestrated the entire border crisis and it’s the good, hard-working Americans who have to pay through the nose to help prop up the failed welfare state America has become.

And things are only going to get worse before they get better.

It’s important for every intelligent American to begin to plan for the eventual collapse of both the American economy and society.

One of the best ways to prepare is to secure your home now, before droves of people try to break down your doors when all hell breaks loose.
