" REST EASY BROTHER...WE HAVE THE WATCH "
Como me podrian localizar a un familiar detenido
Good Morning
Are our Southern Borders still open? Looking for info and for some reason unable to locate.
Here's a little suggestion how bout you all fly your toy helicopter for training or other wise at better times of the day ? Rather than 9pm to 2am and 3 o clock in the morning when children are sleeping for next day school and working familys need their rest ? And if you must fly that toy helicopter at all hours of the night how bout you do so in your own neighborhoods ? Because no one is awear of any legitimate reason for these inconvenience or disrespect !
I won't stop testifying Greg T. Martin
Hey just heard there are Florida Troopers coming to Texas to help on the border. How is that possible? Who signed off on that? How is it getting paid for? What are their scope of responsibilities in our state? Are they allowed jurisdiction in Texas? will they be acting as LEO's or support staff? Will they be allowed to carry weapons in a official capacity as a Florida Trooper in Texas. Will they be allowed to arrest anyone in their official capacity as Florida State Troopers in Texas? Yall get back to me on these answers. I got more questions.
I seen the video of a lil boy dropped off, left crying and screaming. I will adopt him please. I live in Michigan.
THANK YOU ALL, FOR PROTECTING AMERICA.
GREAT JOB, WE APPRECIATE OUR AGENTS.
