Celeb ‘Dog Whisperer’ brags how he illegally crossed border with $100 bucks; his story infuriates patriots

Cesar Millan illegally crossed the U.S.-Mexico border decades ago with only $100 in his pocket.

And while the man known as the “Dog Whisper” said he knows he “broke a boundary and a rule,” he claims he was justified because “it was for a dream.”

The dog behaviorist recalled his journey on a recent appearance on Jada Pinkett Smith‘s “Red Table Talk,” talking about his dream of becoming the “best dog trainer in the world” when he headed to America.

“When I was 21 years old, on December 23, I went to my mom again, ‘Mom I’m leaving.’” She said, ‘Where are you going? Tomorrow is Christmas,’” Millan told Smith. “I’m going to America.”

With $100 from his father, Millan embarked on the two-day bus ride to the border.

“Once you get to the border, what you see is people wanted to take advantage of you. So that’s when you learn about the streets. But that’s another level of streets,” Millan said. “They can sell you. They can kill you for organs. I mean, dead is more likely than jumping it [border wall].”

“There were many times I let the border patrol catch me because Americans feed you. So when they catch you, they feed you. Mexican police don’t feed you. Many times I didn’t eat because I wanted to save my $100,” he said, recounting how he finally met a man who got him across the border and in a cab to San Diego.

“I jumped the border,” Millan admitted. “I’m respectful about it — I know I broke a boundary and a rule, but it was for a dream.”

He looked for jobs and worked at cleaning kennels. “Those are the jobs that as immigrants we get. We don’t get the middle-of-the-pack jobs, we don’t get the top-of-the-pack jobs; we get the back of the pack,” he told Smith, whom he’s known for 28 years and credits with helping him.

Millan eventually launched a dog-walking business in the Inglewood neighborhood of Los Angeles and, with his reputation growing as a canine behavior specialist, was approached about the television series that made him a star.

In 2009, he officially became a U.S. citizen.

At a time when the immigration issue is daily being debated in the media, liberals were brought to tears by Millan’s story.

But for Constitution-loving, law-abiding Americans, the Dog Whisperer’s justification for actions did not make it less illegal, and neither did his choice of words.

“Our laws are not ‘a boundary and a rule’ they are laws that are designed to protect our citizens,” one reader responded to Yahoo.

“So pursuit of a dream justifies breaking laws?” asked another, while one reader said “The end doesn’t justify the means…..”

Some Twitter users agreed that the “thought process” justifying Millan’s choices was “insanity.”
