81 Illegals Arrested Crossing U.S-Mexico Border in Southern Arizona

It’s one of the first large groups to arrive since the Trump administration’s agreement with Mexico.

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.

Arizona Border Patrol Officer Stabbed Multiple Times, Shoots and Kills Criminal Alien

A Border Patrol officer patrolling the US-Mexico border shot and killed a man who stabbed him multiple times in Southern Arizona on Monday night.

CBP officials reported that the unnamed agent was patrolling near the transnational city of Nogales, Arizona, when he encountered a group of individuals he suspected to be aliens entering the country illegally. One man accompanying them group attacked the agent when he sought to apprehend the aliens, stabbing him multiple times.

The CBP agent went on to fatally shoot the alien, who may have been a smuggler moving a group of illegal migrants across the border. Deputies of the Santa Cruz Sheriff’s Office were called to provide backup, and the Border Patrol agent that was stabbed had to be airlifted to a Tucson hospital early on Tuesday morning. Fortunately, he was released from the hospital later the same day.

Cartel-affiliated criminal smugglers have increasingly sought to infiltrate the United States in Arizona, hoping to avoid a buffed border patrol presence in Texas and new wall construction in the most trafficked areas of the border.

Preliminary reports indicate that the Border Patrol agent may have been alone when he encountered the smuggler’s group of criminal aliens, a hazard that has resulted in violent attacks on Border Patrol agents by cartel-affiliated criminals before.

The FBI is reportedly investigating the incident. It’s unclear if the group of aliens encountered by the agent have been expelled under special coronavirus immigration regulations, transferred into the custody of immigration detention, or simply allowed to proceed into the country.
