Sheriff Larry Dever of Cochise County, Ariz., says a flood of federal and local law enforcement officers are coming forward to back his claim that the U.S. Border Patrol is directing them to stop arresting immigrants who cross over from Mexico illegally.

Sheriff Larry Dever: Illiegal immigrants just turn around and come back.
In effect, the Border Patrol has ordered other agencies to turn the illegal immigrants back to Mexico instead of apprehending them, Dever told Fox News. The problem with that is that they simply turn around and try again, he said.

Dever said he is not the only law enforcement agent chafing at this. He shared messages he has received from other officers with Fox News.

“Upper management has advised supervisors to have agents ‘turn back South’ [TBS] the illegal aliens [aka bodies] they detect attempting to unlawfully enter the country . . . at times you even hear supervisors order the agents over the radio to 'TBS' the aliens instead of catching them,” one San Diego border agent wrote in an email to Dever.

“This only causes more problems as the aliens, as you know, don't just go back to Mexico and give up. They keep trying, sometimes without 10 minutes in-between attempts, to cross illegally,” said the email.
