Group of Illegals with Children in Tow Wanders Right into A-10 Bombing Range

Share

A group of illegal immigrants with children in tow has been arrested on a bombing range.

“Yuma Sector Border Patrol agents rescued 17 illegal aliens after they crossed into the Barry M. Goldwater Bombing Range east of San Luis and became lost Monday night,” Customs and Border Protection said in a statement this week.

“At approximately 10:10 p.m., emergency services in Mexico relayed a phone call to the Yuma Sector Operations Center from a group lost in the desert,” the statement continued.

“The caller reported that the group was comprised of eight adults and nine juveniles. Yuma Station agents deployed to the area in search of the 17 lost individuals.

“At 11:30 p.m., agents located the illegal aliens approximately 30 miles east of San Luis within the bombing range area of operations. The individuals were found to be in good health and did not require medical attention. The group was then transported to Yuma Station where they received food, water, and access to care.”

So, uh, mission accomplished, right? I mean, nine juveniles, so we’ve rescued kids, too. Good work all around.

“This particular area is especially dangerous for illegal border crossers due to the remoteness of the location,” Yuma Sector Chief Patrol Agent Anthony J. Porvaznik said.

“In addition to the complete lack of adequate infrastructure to stop this occurrence, illegal aliens must contend with the summer heat and the dangers of military training in the area.”

There’s actually been a lot of media silence on this one, particularly when you consider what was going on in that desert.

Do you think that these illegal immigrants should be deported?

Here is an A-10 Warthog practicing runs over the same bombing range in March:

They generally don’t look so non-mithraic, if the A-10 is any indication.

“This particular area is especially dangerous for illegal border crossers due to the remoteness of the location,” Yuma Sector Chief Patrol Agent Anthony J. Porvaznik said.

“In addition to the complete lack of adequate infrastructure to stop this occurrence, illegal aliens must contend with the summer heat and the dangers of military training in the area.”’

Those who contended with the summer heat and the dangers of military training in the area were “processed for immigration violations,” which sounds about right.

So, what did we learn here?

Well, we learned that you probably shouldn’t be in the same place as an A-10 doing bombing exercises. This probably should have been clear to everyone, but it apparently bore repeating given the fact that individuals were willing to risk it.

It’s really simple, folks! You don’t have to get busted in the same bombing field that A-10s were doing their thing in.

What you need to do is not get busted at all by not breaking our immigration laws.

I know it’s difficult, people, but you can do it. I have faith in you.
