A massive group of illegal migrants infiltrated the United States’ southern border with Mexico, by tunneling under barriers and surfacing on the American side of the border.
Officials stated that the group surfaced near openings to a total of seven separate tunnels, at a relatively remote section of the border nearby Yuma, Arizona.
It’s said that the size of the group- a whopping 376 migrants– could be one of the largest groups ever apprehended by Customs and Border Patrol. After reaching the United States, the group presented themselves to Border Patrol Agents, requesting asylum. It’s likely now that they’ll be subject to a lengthy legal process, in which immigration courts will evaluate the credibility of their claim of asylum. Many migrants will never show up for their court hearings.
According to CBP, at least 200 of the group are minors, with many of the adults claiming to be their parents or relatives. Requesting asylum as a minor or as a family member of a migrant minor dramatically increases one’s chance of receiving legal residence of the United States, despite entering the United States illegally or declining asylum in an adjacent safe country, such as Mexico.
According to the Yuma Border Patrol Sector Chief, Anthony Porvaznik, migrants claiming(often under doubtful prospects) to be family units will serve as a means to evade detention in immigration enforcement facilities. He was quoted telling ABC News that “the only reason they’re trying to say that they’re family units is that they know if they’re a family unit, they’re going to be released within 20 days.” He went on to state that he had never encountered a migrant group as big as this one in his 30+ year long career with the federal agency.
Open borders and anti-wall advocates will claim a tunneling strategy employed by illegal migrants negates the purpose and intention of a border wall, but it’s a strawman argument to suggest that immigration patriots decline to offer policy solutions to deal with the phenomenon– which has been used for drug smuggling before. Through utilizing underground sensors, cracking down on fake asylum claims, and cooperating with Mexican law enforcement, it’s possible to deter foreign nationals from digging tunnels into the United States.

Customs and Border Patrol Set to Deploy Elite Units to Sanctuary Cities to Assist ICE
CBP is serious about enforcing immigration law, even in cities that intend to flout it.
Customs and Border Patrol is preparing to redeploy some of the agency’s highly trained tactical personnel throughout the nation’s “sanctuary cities” in order to support Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
The New York Times reported on the development Friday, that signals the Department of Homeland Security(which presides over both entities) is dead serious about national immigration enforcement, even in scofflaw municipalities that have sought to neuter it.
According to the report, more than 100 of CBP’s agents are being deployed throughout the nation to assist in ICE operations. It’s possible the agents could be tasked with apprehending illegal alien fugitives who are released onto the streets from local jail custody. They’ve been described as members of a unit known as BORTAC, an unit of personnel analogous to CBP’s SWAT team.
It’s common for sanctuary city jurisdictions to release individuals who are often violent criminals from custody, ignoring ICE detainer requests that the fugitives be instead handed over to face federal charges for immigration violations.
Sanctuary cities often create unnecessary risks to public safety by forcing ICE to arrest dangerous criminals off of the streets, when they could’ve been simply handed over from municipal jail systems to the federal agency. Eric Garcetti, the mayor of one of America’s biggest cities, openly admits that Los Angeles simply does not participate in immigration enforcement.
Regardless of your immigration status, I want every Angeleno to know your city is on your side. Here in Los Angeles, our police department does not coordinate with ICE or participate in immigration enforcement.
— Mayor Eric Garcetti (@MayorOfLA) February 15, 2020
If scofflaw cities such as Philadelphia and Los Angeles are truly determined to undermine immigration law enforcement, then so be it. Attorney General Bill Barr has followed the lead of his predecessor, Jeff Sessions, in instituting new measures to punish the open borders cities, restricting them from federal law enforcement programs.
Conservatives shouldn’t be afraid of advocating for a strong federal government that will step in to perform the law enforcement duties sanctuary cities are cowering away from.
