Southwest Border Interactive Map, Mexican Cartel Own The Border
BERTRAND DAILY REPORT The War For Your Mind & Soul Continues
By Capt. Dave Bertrand, Ret.
Friends and Associates:
When a Democrat says “Yes….we do need border security, but we don’t need a Wall,” they’re playing politics and lying.
Before Trump, those same ones we saw yesterday arguing with the president at a press conference, stated (openly) before 2016 “We need a barrier or wall.”
The hypocritical Dems are (now) against a Wall, only because Trump and his supporters (for border security) want a Wall. Trump wants $5 Billion Dollars for a Wall….Dems refuse to approve, and is a drop in the bucket compared to what THEY do approve to secure other country’s borders and foreign aid.
What Trump did to Pelosi and Chuckie Schumer yesterday was a public lashing exposing their hypocrisy and lies.
Since the Dems have control over the House in January, their angle is to make Trump appear to be less than a president while attempting to show that Dems have control over him. Isn’t going to work….
The Dems know that Trump can easily use the military budget as a National Security issue to build the Wall if the Dems refuse to fund the Wall, which in-turn….will show the House as being powerless and ineffective.
The “No Border Wall” rhetoric by the Dems, before a possible shutdown, will likely force the House to approve the Wall.
It’s amazing to see the lack of knowledge by Pelosi and Schumer, of which I do not recall either one of them walking or riding along with U.S. Border Patrol at the border.
If they had….they’d know how terribly unsecure certain areas along the border are and the areas where terrain is nearly impossible to secure. Two particular areas in Arizona, very unsuitable for placing boots-on-the-ground to watch 24/7 is the major drug corridor, (1) a mere 10 to 15 miles east of Nogales Arizona where the Coronado National Forest is very rugged, and the (2) area between Sasabe and Nogales.
In Texas, the Falcon Lake area is constantly breached by the drug trafficking cartel….mostly during the night and when USBP shift changes. There is no fence or wall…..
Another hotspot in Texas is the Big Bend National Park area for drug trafficking.
Besides the main drug corridors along the border of Arizona and Texas, the movement by illegal aliens happens anywhere along the border in areas where access is easy. In California, the dilapidated fence near campo and Jacumba are known as “panels” with holes and separated segments where illegal aliens wait for breaks in USBP shift changes.
Several areas in Arizona, the only barrier is a barbed wire fence where ranches are located…..
The Dems say they want more border security, but what they don’t know, is the USBP virtual security and added boots-on-the-ground is not as effective as one would think. The Tucson Sector (COMMS) watches 24/7 areas along areas of rugged terrain and if agents are working a large group 30 miles away, the illegal aliens being watched, enter without a problem.
The very few, one or two Predator Drones flying along the border spots a group…..the same problem exists when agents (and helicopters) are working larger groups elsewhere, which is the reason why illegal aliens that travel in small groups are usually not apprehended.
Pelosi and her House of Dems are all open border supporters while saying they want more money for border security, but in reality…..what they’re actually saying is:
More border patrol agent apprehensions, but the Dems will continue to fight the detainment factor and separation of families, while pushing the agenda for ‘Catch and Release,’ whereas…the illegal is arrested, released with a court date, and disappears into a sanctuary city.
On the flipside of ‘Catch and Release’ is the ‘Revolving Door’ when illegals captured are immediately placed on a [Wackenhut] bus and taken directly to processing and then released back into Mexico. Other Than Mexican (OTM) are flown back to Central America and elsewhere at OUR expense.
The WALL is a deterrent and would allow Border Patrol agents to concentrate their efforts in areas that are vulnerable.
The cost factor of hiring thousands of more agents and buying helicopters and other technology, is more expensive than building a Wall.
The Dems prefer to take the chance of poor border security versus losing elections.
Below is an interactive map, prepared by the civilian border watch group, [American Border Patrol] and you can click on areas along the border to see what the barrier and existing fences look like.
Trump will build the Wall….even if he has to do it with the Military budget, which happens to include the border Wall amount.
He’s playing 4D Chess with those that fear the [DECLAS] and upcoming Military Tribunals in January and the resistance against anything and everything Trump is wanting to accomplish is growing.

Mexican Cartels ‘Absolutely’ Control the Southwest Border, Says Sheriff
June 19, 2018 Updated: June 19, 2018
PHOENIX—Every time politicians and media discuss border security, one particular group of people is paying very close attention: Mexican cartels.
“Because across the border in Mexico we have a complete, organized, criminal business of trafficking humans and drugs into the United States,” said Sheriff Andy Louderback of Jackson County, Texas. The cartels “absolutely” control the southwest border, he said.
“Every day, every minute, some penetration of the Texas border, California border, New Mexico border, Arizona border—every minute, someone is preparing to send a load in, or traffick humans in, or some type of criminal activity is going on. Every minute of every day. That’s their job, that’s what they’re committed to do, that’s how they get paid. And that’s what we’re up against.”
The heightened border security under the Trump administration is helping the DEA’s efforts, said Coleman.
“Anything that we can do that makes the cartel change the way that they operate a little bit, gives us a chance to exploit that change,” he said. “And so additional security on the border makes them change the way that they are going to traffick the drugs in.”
But combatting smuggling and trafficking across the border is an uphill battle, said Louderback.
“It’s a daily, 24-hour business. And this is what they do,” he said.
“And I’m not sure that a large portion of the United States, the population here, understand exactly the task that we have to try and stop these folks. They’re well-funded, [they] have more money than the U.S. government is willing to put into this—because we don’t have enough money, there’s never going to be enough money, to do that.”
