With illegal immigrants pouring into the country from Mexico, the Border Patrol is using its full power and authority to…crack down on Boy Scouts on the Canadian border.
A troop of Boy Scouts from Iowa was crossing from Canada to Alaska when a chain of events took place that ended up with a Border Protection officer pointing his gun at one of the Boy Scout’s heads.
It all started when one of the Boy Scouts took a picture of a Border Patrol agent. The agents confiscated the camera, detained the scouts for four hours and searched all of the scouts’ belongings. The agents also threatened to arrest one of the scouts, throw him in jail for ten years and fine him $10,000.
Then, as one of the Scouts was removing luggage from the top of a van, the officer pulled out his weapon.
Scout leader Jim Fox told TV station KCCI: “[The scout] hears a snap of a holster, turns around, and here’s this agent, both hands on a loaded pistol, pointing at the young man’s head.”
The scouts were eventually released, but not until Fox was interrogated as to why the scouts were transporting “excessive amounts of lighters, matches and knives” (hmm…I wonder).
This is a perfect example of how government thugs bully the innocent while ignoring real criminals like the illegal immigrants who are flooding into states like Texas.
Fox added: “I am outraged by that fact that you have 18 boy scouts that want to come home [getting stopped], yet we have southern borders and border protection but it's like a sieve.”
