Border Patrol is Finally Allowed to Do Its Job

We all know Democratic President Joe Biden has done a piss poor job of either securing our national borders or keeping Americans safe. Thankfully, the Border Patrol is occasionally allowed to do its job and actually protect those Biden promised to.

Take, for example, their recent takedown of known and convicted murderer Danelo Cavalcante, an illegal immigrant let in by Biden’s shoddy border policies.

It became known that Cavalcante escaped custody in Chester County, Pennsylvania, where he was being held for stabbing his ex-girlfriend to death. He was supposed to be transferred to a state prison to serve a life sentence. He had also committed another murder in Brazil in 2017.

But on August 31, Cavalcante escaped, and a manhunt began.

Then, two weeks into the hunt for him, it was discovered that he had stolen a .22 caliber rifle, making him even more dangerous.

Thankfully, an elite Border Patrol Tactical Unit known as BORTAC was called in to handle the situation and finally apprehend Cavalcante.

This took place in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

Pennsylvania State Police Lt. Col. George Bivens reported that the team picked up a heat signal of the fugitive around 1 a.m. and immediately began “converging” on that location. A quick storm moved into the area, forcing BORTAC to delay their apprehension. But not long after 8 a.m., it was all done and over with.

According to Bivens, the heat source was again located, and teams could move in quickly and “very quietly,” surprising Cavalcante. Critical to the arrest was the use of a dog the BORTAC team had with them.

Cavalcante is just one of many BORTAC has been used to apprehend and detain in recent months. In my opinion, they should be used far more often.

Maybe then we wouldn’t have literally millions of illegals wandering around our nation, many of whom are just as dangerous as Cavalcante. Then again, if Biden had just done what he promised, we wouldn’t have this problem to begin with.
