“Agents shall not discharge firearms in response to thrown or hurled projectiles."
The Palestinization of America's southern border is nearly complete.
Top administration officials have directed 21,000 border patrol officers to retreat whenever illegal immigrants throw rocks at them, and to avoid getting in front of foreign drug-smugglers’ vehicles as they head north with their drug shipments.
“Agents shall not discharge firearms in response to thrown or hurled projectiles… agents should obtain a tactical advantage in these situations, such as seeking cover or distancing themselves,” said the instructions, issued Mar. 7, under the signature of Michael Fisher, chief of U.S. Border Patrol.
Ah yes, a tactical advantage in order to... do nothing. That tactical advantage is also known as a strategic withdrawal or a retreat. The process will naturally encourage illegal alien DREAMERs to go invading America in the hopes that the GOP will be stupid enough to pass amnesty and create permanent Democratic Party rule.
Agents were also directed to keep their weapons holstered when drug smugglers drive by. Agents can’t use guns against “a moving vehicle merely fleeing from agents,” say the instructions.
However, the instructions also suggest that officers be penalized if they don’t step back. Agents “should not place themselves in the path of a motor vehicle or use their body to block a vehicles’s path,” according to new instructions.
Before long, they'll be expected to escort the drug smuggling vehicles just like they escort unaccompanied minor aliens.
