David J. Stoddard Biography

Title:
Retired US Border Patrol Agent
Position:
Con to the question "Should the Government Allow Immigrants Who Are Here Illegally to Become US Citizens?"
Reasoning:

“The INS must be separated into two agencies, one to provide services and the other for enforcement purposes. The US Border Patrol must be allowed to do its job in strict accordance to the law without regard to political correctness and without regard to state, city and local boundaries. This is the only way we can remain a sovereign nation…

I urge the immediate deployment of US military troops and equipment on our borders to seal them against those who would cause us harm…

I urge the separation of the US Border Patrol into a separate agency responsible for the detection, interdiction, arrest, prosecution and/or deportation of drug smugglers and illegal aliens.”

Testimony of David J. Stoddard, Submitted to US Subcommittee on Criminal Justice, Drug Policy, and Human Resources,” Feb. 22, 2002
