A large group of 242 illegal immigrants arrived in Arizona on Thursday, having been dropped off by buses on a Mexican highway adjacent to the nation’s border with the United States.
This arrival marks the latest in a string of unusually large groups crossing the U.S-Mexico border illegally, usually turning themselves in and requesting asylum.
Border Patrol sources alleged that “several busloads” of the migrants were dropped off in Northern Mexico, almost immediately crossing the border, which was only fortified for the prevention of vehicular crossings in this sector. Migrants, who were mostly from the Central American nation of Guatemala, were said to simply crawl under the fencing with ease.
In similar fashion to recent large groups of migrants, the border crossers were apprehended by Border Patrol shortly after their arrival in the United States, having been detected by motion sensors. This was likely all part of their plan, as fighting a battle for legal residency within the American immigration courts is often viewed by migrants as a more favorable way to obtain legal status in the country.
Should their claims for asylum be accepted, the American taxpayer would be on the line for providing free world-class education, welfare, healthcare and public services for the migrants, regardless of their illegal entrance into the country.
Large groups of migrants pose an increasingly prevalent issue for Border Patrol and Homeland Security, which institutionally are more structured to deter smaller groups of adult men coming to the United States illegally to seek work. The group that arrived Thursday is one of several that came this month, with one that tunneled in near Yuma containing 376 people.
A wall, while serving as an essential component of comprehensive border security, is unlikely to deter these sorts of groups that aim to utilize the immigration court system to secure residence. A more specific solution would involve reforming the system to crack down on fake asylum claims and requiring migrants to submit claims for asylum in a safe third country, such as Mexico.
Texas Representative Introducing Legislation for State to Finish “President Donald J. Trump Wall”
The wall can be completed at a state level.
A Texas legislator is pledging to complete sections of President Donald Trump’s border wall, proposing new legislation that would enable the state of Texas to resume construction of the wall system abandoned by Joe Biden.
Bryan Slaton of House District 2 is pledging to name the complete wall the “President Donald J. Trump Wall” in House Bill 2862.
We all know Biden has opened the flood gates at our border. That's why today, I have filed HB 2862 to finish President Trump's wall in Texas.
If the federal government won't do its job protecting American citizens, then Texas will stand in the gap and do it for them.#txlege

“President Trump fought to bring real border security and was opposed by Republicans and Democrats in Congress. While hundreds of miles of new wall were built under his leadership, the Biden administration has already ceased border wall construction,” Slaton said in a press statement announcing the legislation.
“It is time for Texas to stand up and finish the work that President Trump started. Let’s finish building the border wall now.”
It’s likely legal for state governments to take eminent domain measures to acquire land on the border and build a protective wall on it. Contractors already lined up to work with the federal government may even be willing to negotiate rates with Texas, having fully engaged in building more than 450 miles of wall during Donald Trump’s presidency. Slaton’s legislation would also formally request compensation for wall construction from the federal government. The bill is currently awaiting assignment to a committee in the Texas House of Representatives.
Customs and Border Patrol agents have pointed to the border wall system as a lifesaver on the southern border, enabling law enforcement to focus resources in more concentrated areas where illegal immigration and drug trafficking have been focused.
An Arizona Sheriff is pointing to the cessation of wall construction as an invitation of criminality. Likening the border regions of Cochise County to a “crime scene,” Mark Dannels is describing the abandoned construction sites as “roads for the cartels,” pointing to rates of illegal immigration and smuggling that have doubled since Joe Biden ascended to the presidential throne.
Arizona legislators may soon follow in funding border wall construction at a state level, leaving California and New Mexico as Democrat-leaning states unlikely to secure the nation’s borders with states funds.
