The Acting Commissioner of Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Mark Morgan revealed to a Senate committee on Tuesday that 5,800 “fake families” were discovered to have been trying to enter the U.S. illegally this year.
Chairman Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.) questioned Morgan during a Senate Homeland Security hearing about the border crisis, asking him “Our laws prevent us from holding people more than 20 days and because we can’t get the information we’re probably releasing them even sooner than that in many cases, correct?”
Morgan responded, “With respect to family units, since March of this year, United States Border Patrol has been releasing family units directly so in some cases they’re being released in under 48 hours into the interior of the United States.”
Johnson then remarked, “Because it really doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to try and find facilities to hold them for 20 days with this overwhelming flow so instead of border patrol turning them over to ICE for a more thorough vetting process and then ICE releasing them, border patrol is doing it directly?”
Morgan replied, “That’s correct.”
Johnson stated that releasing undocumented migrant families into the interior without proper vetting poses a “real danger” to both the public safety of Americans and to the migrants themselves.
“Especially with the amount of fake families that we are uncovering every single day,” Morgan said.
Johnson claims that U.S. authorities “do not have the time to determine” if migrant children are accompanied by their parents or human traffickers.
Morgan responded by saying that “It’s a challenge.”
He added, “As long as our laws are the way they are you are going to grab a kid because that is your passport to the United States. They know that in the Northern Triangle countries and they are exploiting that every single day.”
On April 30, 2019, reports surfaced the Department of Homeland Security began DNA testing to determine family ties at the border. Later during the hearing, Johnson asked Morgan about the number of “fraudulent families” that have been discovered through DNA testing programs at the border.
Morgan stated, “I don’t have the overall percentage but we do have the numbers. Right now at border patrol, 5,800 and HSI, part of ICE, they’ve identified hundreds since their pilot program of pushing agents forward.”
The occurrence of “fake families” will likely increase as the U.S. continues to drag its feet on immigration reform.
Mass migration is no trivial matter and could potentially disrupt both political and social institutions in America.
That’s why GOP voters view it as the number #1 issue heading into the 2020 elections.
Should Trump win re-election, he must make immigration reform his top priority.

GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis Follows Democrat Orders, Locks Down Florida After Media Pressure Campaign
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis issued a statewide shelter order on Wednesday, April 1, 2020 in response to the Wuhan Virus pandemic.
“I’m going to be doing an executive order today directing all Floridians to limit movements and personal interactions outside the home to only those necessary,” he stated. “To obtain or provide essential services or conduct essential activities.”
DeSantis’s order will go into effect at 12:01 a.m. on Friday and will last for 30 days.
If any “essential service” was missed in the initial executive order, the governor says it can be tacked on.
DeSantis claimed he consulted with the White House and had a conversation with President Donald Trump about the decision. He noted that the White House Wuhan Virus task force’s extended guidelines from Tuesday night shaped DeSantis’ decision, describing the president’s move a “national pause.”
“We’re going to be in this for another 30 days,” he declared. “At this point, even though there’s a lot of places in Florida that have very low infection rates, it makes sense to make this move now.”
DeSantis has taken advantage of this situation by pushing forward infrastructure programs. The Florida governor ordered that $2.1 billion in transportation projects be accelerated. These projects include the Howard Frankland bridge project in Tampa Bay.
Sadly, it appears that the Florida Governor has capitulated to Democrat demands to shut down the entire state, even though the Democrat cities infested with the disease are already on lock down. Thirteen left-wing members of Congress led by Debbie Wasserman-Schultz lead a media campaign by signing a letter to the governor earlier this week calling for him to issue the order.
The Wuhan Virus saga demonstrates the unforeseen costs of globalization, where basic civil liberties have to be suspended due to the problems that globalist policies cause.
Mass migration and free trade come with lots of hidden costs and increase the likelihood of generalized crises like the Wuhan Virus pandemic to occur.
