That may not be the only source of orchestration. Back in January, the Department of Homeland Security had solicited bids for some help–but not for help to protect the borders–help to escort for an anticipated 65,000 illegal immigrants they expected to flood the system.
Garza also stated that only 30 percent of the agents actually remain at the border where “dangerous criminals and dangerous drugs are entering our country undetected.”
