Customs and Border Patrol have reported arresting almost 300 illegal aliens in the area of Laredo Texas in one day this week, taking several groups of smuggled aliens into custody over 24 hours on Wednesday.
The south Texas city has emerged as a hub for human and drug smuggling after the coronavirus, becoming a target for smuggling operations after illegal transit was ground to a halt during the first months of the pandemic.
Four separate busts resulted in groups of unlawful aliens being taken into custody, with CBP arresting groups of 123, 13, 84, and 74 over an 18-hour period. The first two groups were discovered hiding in unsanitary conditions at a stash house in the city, and the latter appear to have been smuggled into the country in refrigerated trailers.
Authorities believe that the aliens paid criminal smugglers $5,000 each to be brought into the United States. Such mass entry of illegal aliens represents a potent public health threat to the American public in the coronavirus pandemic.
One of the aliens arrested in the Wednesday enforcement sweep was a sex offender convicted of crimes in the United States.
242 aliens were arrested in one enforcement operation alone at the end of September.
Drug and human smuggling cartel organizations appear to be targeting the city as a staging point for their operations, and they’re likely to continue doing so as more migrants seek to leave coronavirus recession-stricken Latin American countries for what they believe will be abundant opportunities in the United States.
Illegal aliens arrested have been subjected to swift ‘expulsion’ immigration action during the coronavirus, with DHS sending the migrants back to their countries in a process that avoids the convoluted, byzantine and notoriously politically correct immigration court system. Illegal traffic has declined considerably as a result, and DHS may have to consider utilizing the provisions indefinitely during a tentative Trump second term.
Meanwhile in Mexico…9 People Killed At a Wake in the State of Guanajuato
America must bolster its border security.
The Independent reported that gunmen killed nine people at a wake in the central Mexican state of Guanajuato on January 7, 2020.
Law enforcement officials in the city of Celaya revealed in a statement that gunmen showed up late that night and began firing on a group of people. The event was held in an impoverished neighborhood where residents mourned a young man who fell to gun fire a few days prior.
According to David Saucedo, a security analyst based in Guanajuato, the Jalisco New Generation Cartel carried out the attack against the deceased man’s family. The gunmen believed that the family was connected to the competing Santa Rosa de Lima gang, although many may not have connections with the gang.
“At that wake, a lot of innocent people died,” Saucedo observed.
Guanajuato is a flashpoint for a violent proxy war between major drug cartels. Since 2017, the Santa Rosa de Lima gang has fended off the fast-rising Jalisco cartel in a bloody turf war. Although law enforcement arrested the leader of the Santa Rosa de Lima gang back in August, the violence has not gone away According to Saucedo, the Sinaloa cartel has intervened in this struggle to keep the Jalisco cartel from securing a foothold in Guanajuato. They’ve sent weapons, financial aid, and gunmen to prop up Santa Rosa de Lima and other local gangs.
With so much drama taking place stateside, we often forget that Mexico is a failed state. Similarly, the outrage stemming from the Wuhan virus pandemic largely overshadowed issues of border security and immigration. However, this should not lessen the importance of the immigration issue.
As Mexico continues tearing itself apart, America must bolster its border security. Unfortunately, the incoming President Joe Biden is not up to task and will prioritize weak border enforcement and a potential amnesty for illegal aliens. America will suffer greatly as a result.
