Convicted Child Molester Arrested by U.S. Border Patrol
    Previously convicted of child molestation after he illegally crossed the border in East County on Monday afternoon.
    At about 4 p.m., a Border Patrol agent witnessed three people climb over the border fence near Jacumba Hot Springs. Agents responded and encountered the three Mexican nationals hiding in thick brush.
     Agents arrested the three men for illegally entering the country and transported them to a nearby Border Patrol station for processing. A records check revealed that one man in the group had been previously deported after serving a six-year prison sentence for “Lewd and Lascivious Acts with a Child under 14.”

Why don't they secure the border?
    There is no question that the federal government had the ability to secure our border long ago and simply refused to do so.
    The Department of Homeland Security did not build a proper border fence near Jacumba, California, and a convicted child molester merely stepped over it. Fortunately he was caught. This just one example of gross negligence that is repeated all along the border.
    There are many theories for this negligence - this is mine.
    Our government leaves the border open --- not because of cheap labor, and not because of votes.
    As we began building the border fence in earnest in 2007, it soon became clear to me --- and to our government --- that we had set off he Mexican Drug war.
    Fearing an even greater Mexican war, the design of the fence was changed --- making it less effective, and allowing people, and drugs to cross.
    The border has long been described as Mexico's safety valve. It continues so today.
    America is being sacrificed to save Mexico.
