The Epoch Times reports that children are being “rented, bought, kidnapped, and recycled so that single adults, mostly men from Central America, can gain quick release into the United States after crossing the border illegally.”
The cost of these human trafficking schemes varies.
During a congressional hearing on July 18, acting Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Kevin McAleenan said “We’ve had indications … that it could cost anywhere from a few hundred—or even in some cases, less than $100—up to $1,000 or more.”
In one shocking instance, McAleenan claimed that a 51-year-old illegal alien bought a 6-month-old baby for $80 in Guatemala in order to facilitate his entry into the U.S. The man in question is a Honduran national who revealed this information to border agents after he took DNA test.
“We’ve seen all manner of smuggling organizations communicating to potential customers and to those crossing the border how to bring a child with them to be allowed to stay in the United States,” McAleenan stated. “They’ve been active in advertising, literally on Facebook and on the radio in Central America.”
Homeland Security Investigations, a division of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), deployed 400 agents to El Paso and Rio Grande Valley, Texas, in the middle of April. This was part of a process to interview families who Border Patrol suspected were fake.
In the last eight weeks, HSI officials have identified 5,500 fake families. Nearly 15 percent of these cases were referred.
According to McAleenan, agents have found 921 fake documents, and 615 individuals have been prosecuted for child trafficking or child smuggling.
The acting Secretary of DHS believes that this is only the tip of the iceberg.
He asserted that “tells me that we might be scratching the surface of this problem and the number of children being put at risk might be even higher.”
McAleenan added, “Everybody knows that if they bring a child, they’ll be allowed to stay in the United States—they call it a ‘passport for migration.’ I heard that directly from a gentleman from Huehuetenango, the westernmost province of Guatemala.”
In all the cases he has studied thus far, McAleenan has seen the same thing play out: “The subject stated that he made the attempt because he heard in his hometown that anyone traveling to the United States with a child will be released.”
According to McAleenan, more than 300,000 children have crossed the southern border since Oct. 1, 2018. The majority of them have entered with their family units, but 67,000 have entered as unaccompanied minors.
This is one facet of the immigration disaster taking place at the southern border.
Immigration reform is a must, lest the U.S. want a social headache that mirrors what’s going on in Europe.
So, it’s no surprise that GOP voters view immigration as the #1 issue heading into the 2020 elections.
For Trump to secure re-election and build a strong congressional coalition to pass immigration reform, Republicans at all levels must make immigration the most talked about issue during the 2020 elections.
Biden’s Open Border Policies are a Magnet for Incoming Central American Caravans
The mother of all caravans is coming
Some things are simply too predictable. According to Ben Wildon of SaraCarter.com, a new migrant caravan from Central America is quickly forming, and it’s heading northward to the U.S.
Incoming President Joe Biden’s lax immigration policies have become a magnet for migrants who desire entering the U.S. illegally. They know very well that Biden will not drop the hammer when they illegally enter the country. Up to 9,000 migrants have apparently been making their way to the U.S. At least 1,000 of those migrants illegally entered Guatemala on January 15, 2021, according to a report by the Associated Press.
The pro-mass migration group Pueblo Sin Fronteras was ecstatic about the new caravan and urged the incoming Biden administration to welcome them with open arms in a statement that it released recently.
“We recognize the importance of the incoming Government of the United States having shown a strong commitment to migrants and asylum seekers, which presents an opportunity for the governments of Mexico and Central America to develop policies and a migration management that respect and promote the human rights of the population in mobility,” the statement said.
In addition, the group stated, ”We will advocate that the Biden government honors its commitments.”
Additionally, the group called for immigration reform (amnesty) by scrapping laws that make migrants stay in Mexico as their asylum requests are processed.
“A new United States Government is an opportunity to work with the Mexican Government to develop a cooperation plan with Central America to address the causes of migration, together with civil society organizations, as well as an opportunity to increase regional cooperation regarding the persons in need of protection, and to dismantle illegal and inhuman programs such as Remain in Mexico, the United States’ Asylum Cooperation Agreements with El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, as well as the Title 42 expulsions by the United States authorities,” Pueblo Sin Fronteras stated.
According to a Fox News report, Biden has vowed to provide citizenship to illegal aliens and do away with a number of Trump era policies such as the enforcement of the public charge rule, the temporary immigration moratorium during the Wuhan virus pandemic, and several restrictions to the H1-B visa system that kept legal immigration in check. Additionally, Bden wants to implement a moratorium on ICE deportations.
Curiously, Susan Rice, a Biden administration policy advisor revealed that the U.S. would not be fully opening the borders to migrants right off the bat.
“Processing capacity at the border is not like a light that you can just switch on and off,” Rice told the Spanish news site EFE. “Migrants and asylum seekers absolutely should not believe those in the region peddling the idea that the border will suddenly be fully open to process everyone on Day 1. It will not.”
These caravans will only grow larger as time goes by. The Biden administration’s weak border policies serve as a magnet for migrants. Border security is a pillar of any coherent political jurisdiction. Failure to secure a border, will inevitably lead to political chaos.
If Republicans are serious about getting back into power, they should unapologetically push for strong border policies, zero tolerance on illegal immigration, and a legal immigration moratorium.
