CRISIS: 376 Central American Migrants Tunnel Under Border and Request Asylum

Published

on

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.

WTH: Arizona Border Patrol Agent Arrested, Charged With Drug Trafficking

He was allegedly working with the drug smugglers.

Published

on

A Customs and Border Patrol agent was arrested and federally charged with multiple counts of drug trafficking, conspiracy and distribution of controlled substances.

A Department of Justice charging document alleges that Carlos Victor Passapera Pinott, 53, of Buckeye, Arizona, transported two duffel bags containing heroin and fentanyl from the US-Mexico border to Phoenix Sky Harbor airport, where the drugs were handed off to another criminal operative.

Passapera is a Border Patrol agent assigned to the Tucson sector. The charging document details his alleged activities.

On August 9, 2020, at approximately 3:15 AM, Passapera left his residence and drove south to a remote area of the border west of the Lukeville Port of Entry. Passapera then drove to Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, where he loaded two duffel bags into another vehicle. Law enforcement agents stopped the driver of that vehicle after it left the airport, and searched the duffel bags.

The bags contained multiple packages of substances that field tested positive for the characteristics of cocaine (21 kilograms), heroin (1 kilogram), and fentanyl (1 kilogram). The bags also contained approximately 350,000 pills. A sample from the pills field tested positive for the characteristics of fentanyl.”

Law enforcement took Passapera into custody on Sunday, and seized $329,000 from his residence and $40,000 from his vehicle.

Passapera, who is facing multiple drug trafficking charges, could face a maximum penalty of life in prison. Federal prosecutors conceivably won’t take kindly to a federal agent engaging in what is a de facto betrayal of the United States, using a position of power to advance the goals of those who seem to be affiliated with criminal drug cartel and trafficking organizations.
