Somewhere over the rainbow: Border Patrol Guidelines Revised – Consider ‘Gender Identity’ of Illegals

by BRANDON DARBY | Breitbart  |  published on October 7, 2015

Border Patrol agents and others operating under the umbrella of Customs and Border Protection (CBP) must now consider not only the sex of the criminal they are detaining, but the “gender identity” of the individual and how they feel and identify. The terms “illegal alien” or even “illegal immigrant” do not appear at all in a new 31-page instruction document. The new rules were published by CBP and according to the agency, “includes language on gender identity, which was not previously included in the individual component policies. Specifically, whenever feasible, officers and agents who conduct a search or are present at a medical examination must be of the same gender, gender identity, or declared gender as the individual being searched.”

A few highlights from the October 2015 National Standards on Transport, Escort, Detention, and Search are listed below:

Section 2.6: Ground Transportation and Escort Standards

Gender of Transporting/Escorting Officer/Agent
Whenever operationally feasible, transport/escort must be conducted by two officers/agents with at least one being of the same gender or gender identity as the detainee(s)

Section 3.4: Gender of Searching Officer/Agent
Whenever operationally feasible, officers/agents conducting a search or that are present at a medical examination, must be of the same gender, gender identity, or declared gender as the detainee being searched.

Section 4.2: At-Risk Detainee Determination Process

Before placing any detainees together in a hold room or holding facility, officers/agents shall assess the information before them to determine if the detainee may be considered an at risk detainee, or at risk of posing a threat to others. This assessment will include:
Whether the detainee has self identified as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, intersex, or gender nonconforming;

    The correct term is………illegal aliens NOT illegal immigrants.

    As I said in another post, if you were born male you are one, if you were born female you are one. There ain’t any thing otherwise.

    So,,,just hire Bruce/Caitlin and get a 2-fer. Send it out and your covered.

  • CommonSense4America

    It seems that we are taking the phrase ‘f–king stupid’ to a whole new level.

  • And how much taxpayer money went to have this stupidity printed up? More waste by this godless Administration of Tyrants! We are almost $20 Trillion in debt, flooded with Illegal Criminals and satanic Muslim Pigs, and now even more stupidity and ignorance from this 3rd World Administration of Hussein Fecal Maggots! Seven years ago, we were not even $10 Trillion in debt, and that took over 200 years to build up to! Obama needs to be dragged, kicking and screaming, from the WH and executed on the Front Lawn, along with his entire Administration of Traitors! I am all for government, but this government is what our Founding Fathers feared one day may happen!

  • Joy Beum

    PC died on January 1, 2015. And as far as the whole ‘gender identity’ thing goes…remember when you would get a spanking if you dressed in your opposite sex sibling’s clothes? Let’s bring back those days…you know, the days when parents were in charge and kids were told what their sex was. Liberals want it to be ‘well, little Jonhnny/Jonnie, what do you feel you are today?’ Like there’s a Choice! SMH!!

  • JJ

    No, they need to follow the law ON THE BOOKS, that is LEGAL, voted and passed by Congress!…this is just some nut-job’s opinion on how they do their job to enforce the LGBT agenda of a gay president.

  • Richard Schwartz

    American hear but don’t listen

    • Joy Beum

      Y’know how sometimes something is too horrible to look at, so our mind plays tricks on us to protect us. That might be what is happening to many Americans. Just can’t look at so much sin.

  • KDC

    Here we go with the PC (political crap) again. When you break a law it’s called illegal. When you break the law and come into this country your an illegal alien. Alien meaning not belonging to the place you illegally entered. This sensitivity, beyond normal kindness, to sexual orientation is beyond belief. What is ” gender non conforming”? Isn’t that all of the above that they listed? What an upside down world we live in.

  • Debbie

    This is making me sick to my stomach.

    • Joy Beum

      That means you are paying attention and processing the TRUTH!

  • Luke

    liberals would like all these invading people from the South to be treated like guest or is it dem voters..

  • jdbixii

    Seemingly, two human beings accompanying one human being should pretty well cover the requirement. What other more liberal stipulation could there possibly be, except, perhaps, one K-9 bitch and an escapee, for legal purposes.

  • DocJimmy

    This WHOLE scheme was put in place by obummer’s spin doctors to confound and discourage and or prevent the Border Patrol and Customs from doing their duty (Job). The LGBT’s, liberals, atheists, progressives et al are merrily dreaming up illogical non-sense and the rest just seem to sit back and say – ‘oh my, what’s going to become the next undoable rule’. The left appears to believe that if something DOESN’T make sense and is contrary to good order by Conservative values and ideology, they will try to make it a rule or a law.

  • Gene Hull

    CHRIST!!!! I hope Trump wins and totally crushes
    all of this PC shit!

    • paulyz

      Damn Right, as bad as things have gotten, Trump is the most forceful, non-political correctness, experienced, & tough Leader we need. I like Dr. Carson next & Cruz, but the way things are NOW, Trump is the best choice. Carson as VP, then the next President to maintain the progress !

    • KDC

      You said it, “Christ” is what this country needs!

      • Gene Hull

        We need someone like Trump who will tell the truth.

        Christ doesn’t qualify because Christ is a liar:
        Christ promises “I tell you, all that you ask for in prayer, believe that you will receive it and it shall be yours.”

        You really believe that? I don’t think the 6 million Jews killed in the holocaust would agree. I don’t think the Christians now being slaughtered now would agree. I don’t think the untold number of parents who have prayed in vain for their children would agree.

        Here is where he tells his lies:
        Matthew 21:21-22
        Matthew 7:7-8
        Matthew 18:19-20
        Mark 11:24-25
        Luke 11:9-13
        Luke 11:9-13
        John 15:7

        • KDC

          Through all of life’s trials and tribulations, we have the victory. “But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord, Jesus Christ.” Although we are in a spiritual battle, Satan has no authority over the believer in Christ. God has given us His Word to guide us, His Holy Spirit to enable us, and the privilege of coming to Him anywhere, at any time, to pray about anything. He has also assured us that no trial will test us beyond our ability to bear it, and “he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it” (1 Corinthians 10:13).
          Hope Trump makes it!

          • Gene Hull

            Yea, Yea, Yea.
            You didn’t respond to “Christ is a liar”.

          • KDC

            I don’t have to defend Him, first off. And with someone as closed as you, it wouldn’t matter, would it?

          • Gene Hull

            GREAT Christian response KD!

            You sure won’t stray far from you faith-only
            derived fantasies with that interaction
            with the real world.

          • KDC

            Good, I’ll give you another…The Lord says to Satan “This person you are accusing is INNOCENT because she or he is my child. I have a purpose and a plan for this person.” “This case is DISMISSED,” says the Lord. Satan is the accuser of the brethren and the father of lies.

          • Gene Hull

            Congratulations KD. Your special training to become an ignorant, obnoxious, fundamentalist has paid off.

          • KDC

            I’ll take that as a compliment coming from your bitter self. Obnoxious? You better check yourself out.

      • Joy Beum

        Agreed. How have we gone so far downhill?

    • Joy Beum

      He’s got my vote for sure!

  • brtw

    How rediculous! They are ILLEGALS, they have no rights. Who cares what they want????????????????

  • Richard Schwartz

    Who the hell cares? An invader is an invader. A Criminal is a criminal. White,black Mexican, or from any other country. If Obama won’t throw them out he must assume responsibility. His primary responsibility is the security of this country. How is this done when he takes no responsible action to protect us? That is treason and a direct violation of the constitution.

    • KDC

      Amazing what he’s done in his two terms, isn’t it!

    • Joy Beum

      Actually, I think obamy and company are just throwing outrageous ‘decisions’ out there to see if we will EVER draw the line (not an obamy kind of line, but a REAL one). It has become a sick game to them. To me, it is messing with children’s heads and lives.

    • pete G

      Richard, Obama should have been held personally responsible for the death of that girl Kate in SF. That fool he let cross our borders 5 times killed that poor girl in cold blood because of Obama and his open border policy. How the hell do we keep letting this evil bastard get away with this stuff? The SOB belongs in jail then tried so we could hang him.

  • Thomas Goss

    This is bullshit, just don’t allow ANY of these ILLEGALS in. Our government is run by idiots and morons, who the hell cares what the ILLEGAL wants to be referred to as. This PC has gone to far, your either a man or a woman anything else is just not right. Either way do not allow any ILLEGALS into my country, I don’t give a shit what that ILLEGAL LYING MUSLIM HALF BREED in our White House says.

    • S. Wicks Jr

      Better yet; if they cross the border in attempts to invade OUR country; SHOOT TO KILL. Problem solved…..

      • Ace Dragon


  • msueh

    So, that means Border Patrol needs to SPECIFICALLY HIRE those who don’t know what or who they are, in order to comply with these silly pc rules… that’s kind of, well, discriminating against those of us who are normal & not fighting what/who we were born…

    • MeWynne

      What a f—–g mess – and that’s not a word I usually use. Is any of this ever going to be correctable? It’s time for the Border Patrol and any other agency that’s being totally screwed up by this administration, to REBEL.

    • Joy Beum

      Like what you said msueh! Let’s hear it for NORMAL PEOPLE…the new minority!

  • Artemis

    I for one will look anyone in the eye and tell them where to put the whole PC GARBAGE.

    • podunk1

      Unfortunately, Alinsky and Obama have everything under control and their Maoist/RINO progressive agenda of destroying America is all that matters. Right now outsourcing jobs and in-sourcing criminal criminal to throw 38,793,000 (23.2%) citizens out jobs… that could save the USA!!

    • KDC

      Me too.

  • Sylvester Jones

    Time to get rid of the political correct morons in Government. We’re looking more and more like Nazi Germany, with all the perverts in office.

    • MeWynne

      Well, I think you’re completely wrong on the Nazi Germany observation with regard to this article – Nazi Germany would have just shot someone who wanted a guard of the same “gender identity”. We are going in completely the opposite direction – neither direction being right. This ruling is so incredibly scary in that it means that Border Patrol has to have screwed up guards who are, in reality, either male or female, but “identify as just the opposite”. This has the potential for total havoc. It makes me sick to my stomach what this horrible man, Barack Obama, is doing to our country.

      Try Greek or Roman. There were perverted Nazis but they mostly killed sodomites.
