81 illegal immigrants were arrested and processed by Border Patrol outside of Sasabe, Arizona on Tuesday.
The group is possibly one of the biggest to enter the United States in several months. Crossings of large “caravan” groups of illegal immigrants have declined in recent months, in great part due to ‘safe third-country’ deals orchestrated by the Trump administration between the United States and Mexico. The United States also recently enacted a deal with El Salvador that would keep asylum seekers in their home countries.
Customs and Border Patrol released drone surveillance footage of the group crossing into the country. According to the agency, more than 33 man-hours were spent detaining and transporting the group, precious time that could’ve been used to patrol for smaller groups of illegal immigrants.

Sasabe is a small town immediately west of the border city of Nogales, in rural Pima County, Arizona.
CBP sources described the group of migrants as composed of family units and children. Large groups of illegal immigrants are known to utilize minors in order to bolster their asylum claims.
Family units have to be released from immigration detention within weeks due the Reno v. Flores court ruling. The Trump administration was said to be looking to revise the guidelines that create a loophole in which minors are being utilized to game the immigration system, but a plan to change the rules has since stalled.
Generally, migrants that arrive in family units have a strong chance to stay in the United States. Human traffickers have been known to falsely pose as minors’ relatives in order to game the system.
Border security advocates will hope the crossing of a large group won’t result in a mass arrival of illegal immigrants similar to what was seen in 2018.
President Trump Preparing New Executive Order to Rescind DACA Amnesty After SCOTUS Decision
SCOTUS threw out the last one on procedural grounds.
White House sources have indicated that President Donald Trump is planning on signing a new executive order to terminate President Obama’s DACA amnesty program this week.
The Supreme Court had thrown out an earlier executive order to terminate the program in a court ruling last month, terminating the federal drive to enforce American immigration laws on supposed procedural inadequacies.
White House chief of staff Mark Meadows suggested that the President would soon sign a new executive order to terminate the amnesty program, while speaking on Fox and Friends on Monday morning. “Starting this week, you’ll see executive orders, you’ll see business that actually goes forward from the Oval Office when Congress doesn’t act.”
The President has spoken openly of his intention to terminate DACA a second time after the Supreme Court’s arbitrary decision. The court’s ruling had established that the President has complete authority to terminate the amnesty for a selected population of almost a million illegal immigrants, expanded by President Obama without congressional approval in 2014.

The court’s own ruling will likely prevent the judicial branch from overthrowing a second DACA termination executive order, having admitted that the federal government has every right to terminate the program that was implemented on a whim.
Liberal billionaire oligarchs such as George Soros and Charles Koch continue to fund an influence campaign to maintain the amnesty order, hoping to secure a status quo of open borders and weak immigration laws with the hopes of delivering a broad pool of affordable labor for large businesses and the American elite.
