Christopher Harris

Agent Christopher Harris is the former Secretary/Director of Legislative and Political Affairs for the National Border Patrol Council. He represented over 2,000 Border Patrol Agents in the San Diego sector who work in Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino and San Diego Counties. During his 22 years as an agent patrolling the U.S./Mexico border, he had more than a few close calls.

Working on the Border is dangerous. Agents often work solo. They rely on the training received from the Academy. Agents must convince any group of illegals that law enforcement runs the show. Situations can be life threatening. Harris suffered a traumatic brain injury when an assailant hit him on the head with a rock. He has been diagnosed with PTSD, and has powerful headaches.

Border Patrol Agents spend 13 weeks at the Border Patrol Academy in Artesia, New Mexico; which is a component of the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center. Those not fluent in Spanish spend an additional 8 weeks at the Academy.

Agent trainees are instructed in criminal law, nationality law, and administrative immigration law, police sciences, self-defense, arrest techniques, firearms training, police vehicle driving, and other border patrol/federal law enforcement subjects. After graduation they have 12-16 weeks of on-the-job training.

Through the Freedom of Information Act, Fox News discovered that last month on the southern border, 23 illegal immigrants that are on the U.S. Terrorist Watchlist were apprehended. Eight of them were found in San Diego. The Terrorist Screening Database is managed by the FBI. The open border draws illegal immigrants from Mexico, South America, from Africa and the Middle East.

Former U.S. Border Patrol Chief Rodney Scott served in both the Trump and Biden Administrations. Under Biden, Scott posits that terrorists cross the border at a level not seen before. Law enforcement fears this administration’s open border is giving more control to the cartels, bringing in more illegal drugs and more human trafficking.

With all that is happening on the southern border, you will not want to miss what Chris Harris has to tell.

Plan to attend, and bring a friend.

Candidate Greg Wallis

Greg Wallis is a candidate for the 47th Assembly District.  As a third generation Californian, he believes that our state should be the land of economic opportunity and social mobility.   

Greg has been a youth sports coach and leader in his church. He and his high-school-sweetheart wife, Desiree, have seen many of their friends and family leave California due to the high cost of living and lack of economic opportunity. He wants to change that. Greg has been involved in many aspects of public policy and was the Chief District Advisor to Assemblyman Chad Mayes.

Greg and Desiree live in Bermuda Dunes with their two dogs, Gunner and Harley.  They hope to bring more people to the district, as it is truly the best place to live in California.

You will want to meet this charming young candidate who wants your vote on June 7th.

Darlene Casella, Vice President

PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE

Just another reminder that Tuesday, June 7 is the day to go to the polls to save our country.  Please encourage your family and friends to vote in person so their vote will have a better chance of being counted.  As a citizen, you have the right to observe voting activities at the precincts and ballot boxes.  You can only observe at the polls and your cell phones must be turned off.  You cannot have anything that identifies your party affiliation.  If you are interested in driving by the ballot boxes, you can find those addresses in the Voter Guide pamphlet sent to you by Riverside County.   A good time to observe the ballot box activities would be after the near-by government offices are closed, when there is very little activity in the area.  No need to stop.  You can see all you need to see from the car.  If anything at the precincts or the ballot boxes appear suspicious, you can alert the Election Integrity Project at: corpoff@eip-ca.com. 

Thank you for your strong support of our Constitutional government and your committed efforts to stop our country’s decent into Socialism. 

Patricia Pyle,
President
