An Angry Border Control Agent

By Rush Limbaugh | June 25, 2012 |


RUSH: This is John in Southern New Mexico. You’re next here on the EIB Network. Hi.

CALLER: Mr. Limbaugh.

RUSH: Yes, sir.

CALLER: Listen, I’ve been following the Supreme Court and what they’re doing with the Arizona law. I’ve spent 25 years enforcing the law on the border. And I can tell you —

RUSH: Wait, wait, wait, wait. You spent 25 years enforcing the law, that means you’re a border patrol agent or former?

CALLER: I’m a border patrol agent, yes.

RUSH: Current or former?

CALLER: Current.

RUSH: Current border patrol agent.

CALLER: I have been eligible to retire now for a couple months ago, but I’m not going, I’m staying, because there’s a lot of work that still needs to be done. However, what the Supreme Court just did, and I’ll probably get in a lot of trouble over this, but what the Supreme Court just did, regarding the Arizona law… Title 8 of the United States Code section 1304(e), everybody go look it up, says that if you’re here illegally and you’re not a citizen, you have to carry proof of that with you. The law’s already on the books. I don’t know why everybody’s up in arms that Arizona is enforcing it when the US government won’t. It makes no sense. I don’t know why the Supreme Court did that, but that’s what the law says.

RUSH: Well, the Supreme Court did it because the justices that voted the way they did believe in an expanding and all-powerful federal government.

CALLER: Yes, sir. And that’s exactly what it is. That’s exactly… well, I’m not gonna go there, but that’s exactly what it is.

RUSH: It’s no more complicated than that. That’s why I’m shocked that Justice Roberts is on this side of it. Even though I know, I’m still shocked.

CALLER: That blows me away. But the law is on the books, man.

RUSH: Well, that’s the point. It was on the books but they weren’t enforcing it. They weren’t letting you enforce it, or local Arizona law enforcement was not allowed to enforce it. So Arizona said, “All right, we’ll write our own law” that essentially mirrors the statute you just cited, And the court today told them, “You can’t.”

CALLER: Brother, I’m on the same page with you. I believe that. I’m all in favor of them doing what they’re doing. It drives me crazy that the Supreme Court won’t let ’em do it. It drives me up a tree. I have never called one of these shows before. I listen to you every day, but I’ve never called. And this angered me to the point that I… Hell, I’ve been dialing the phone now for 20 minutes tryin’ to get through.

RUSH: Well, I’m glad you did.

CALLER: It’s on the books, man! It’s Title 8 United States Code, Section 1304(e). It’s on the books. It’s on the books, and I’m sorry —

RUSH: Yes. If the federal government won’t enforce it, it may as well not be there. It doesn’t… Look, John, it doesn’t make any sense why we aren’t enforcing duly constituted laws.

CALLER: Amen. Amen.

RUSH: And this, I would have to think —

CALLER: I’m right there with you, man. I’m right there with you.

RUSH: This has to make your job more dangerous.

CALLER: Like I said, I’ve been doing this for 25 flippin’ years, all right? Nobody has more frustration over this than I do. Nobody. Nobody in the whole damn world. I have refused promotions to stay out in the bushes, to stay out and enforce the law, and that’s why I’m staying now. I could retire tomorrow. I could be done. But somebody’s gotta do it.

RUSH: But you can’t now. At least not that statute.

CALLER: I could go, but I’m very good at what I do.

RUSH: Good.

CALLER: I’m very good at what I do.

RUSH: I like hearing people say that. I love hearing people say they’re good at what they do. I believe you are.

CALLER: I love what I do and I’m very, very good at what I do. But it angers me when the country won’t do the right thing. And like I said, there are a lot of people who are gonna recognize my voice, and I’ll probably get in trouble over this. But that’s okay, ’cause I can sign the papers tomorrow and be done.

RUSH: What would happen to you? If you are recognized, what?

CALLER: They’ll probably throw me out.

RUSH: Fire you?

CALLER: Probably. Probably. And I have a very recognizable voice, kind of like yours.

RUSH: Right. So you’re not allowed to have — or you’re not allowed to express — an opinion that contrary to the government’s?

CALLER: Well, unofficially, no. We’re really not. We’re not supposed to speak out against the government. We’re not supposed to do that. It’s kind of like… I mean, we’re the closest thing to the military there is.
