Do You Agree or Disagree With the Decision to Close Lubbock’s Border Patrol Station? [POLL]

Yesterday, three Congressmen from Texas sent a letter to the U.S. Border Patrol to protest the closing of nine Border Patrol Stations, including the one here in Lubbock. According to KFYO News:

According to the Congressmen, during the last fiscal year an average of 142 illegal aliens were apprehended by each agent at the Amarillo and Lubbock stations alone.  An additional 638 have been made just this year.  The letter highlighted these statistics and questioned whether local law enforcement authorities will have to release individuals in the future if USBP or ICE agents are unable to respond to the scene of illegal alien apprehensions in the future.

“Border security is of the utmost importance to our country.  But we know that between the border patrol offices in Amarillo and Lubbock, more than 700 illegal immigrants were detained,” said Congressman Neugebauer. “The Department of Homeland Security hasn’t demonstrated that sending additional resources to the border will be a more efficient use of resources than maintaining a presence further north.  I’d like to see numbers that reassure me that this strategy change won’t ultimately result in fewer arrests.”

What do you think about the closings? Is it a good move or bad move to close the Border Patrol Station here in Lubbock? Let us know what you think in today’s LFN Poll of the Day.
