The bust of a human smuggling stash house in Laredo, Texas resulted in the arrest of 47 illegal aliens and a man suspected of harboring and transporting them on Tuesday.
Deputies of the Webb County Sheriff’s Office and Homeland Security Investigations executed a search warrant on a residence in the border city, after county and federal officials performing surveillance on the home noticed an unusual amount of individuals entering and exiting the premises. WCSO deputies arrested 47 unlawful aliens, and a man named Jose Arcos-Alejo was identified as a suspect in operating the smuggling stash house.
According to an affadavit, Arcos-Alejo allegedly admitted to law enforcement that he was tasked with operating the smuggling house by members of criminal smuggling groups. He allegedly claimed his own immigration smuggling fee was reduced by $5,000 in return for his operation of the stash house.
Arcos-Alejo has been criminally charged with attempting to hide and harbor illegal aliens, a federal offense. 38 men, eight women, and one minor were arrested in the bust.
WCSO confirmed to Big League Politics that the 47 aliens found at the stash house have been transferred to the custody of Customs and Border Patrol.
Illegal immigration ground to a halt at the very apogee of the coronavirus epidemic, but drug and human smuggling organizations appear to have renewed their efforts in hopes of recouping some of their lost profits incurred as a result of the pandemic. The “most sophisticated” smuggling tunnel ever detected underneath the US-Mexico border was busted in San Luis, Arizona earlier this month.
Border Patrol Officials Reporting Biden Surge in Illegal Immigration Following Election
They think they’ll be granted amnesty.
Senior Border Patrol officials are warning of a surge in illegal migration at the southern border in recent weeks, coming directly in response to perceived results of the still-pending presidential election.
Acting Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Mark Morgan is ascribing a 21% increase in apprehension levels at the border over the last month to both economic circumstances in Central America and “perceived and or anticipated shifts in policies” following the November 3rd election. Morgan was speaking to the Washington Times.
CBP personnel intercepted 69,000 illegal migrants at the southern border in October, up from 58,000 in September.
Illegal immigration levels declined in early 2020 due to the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, but they’ve increased in recent months as border crossers flee the effects of the virus’s recession in Central America and Mexico. CBP has been authorized by the Trump administration to use expedited “expulsion” policies to return illegal immigrants to the nation they came from on the basis of coronavirus public health concerns.
Joe Biden has pledged to open the borders of the United States, stating that he intends only to deport felons convicted of violent crimes while in the country illegally. This repudiation of immigration enforcement, if actually adopted, would likely lure tens of millions- if not hundreds of millions- of unauthorized migrants to the United States in various forms in coming years.
Biden has also pledged to grant American citizenship to more than 11 million illegal aliens present in the United States. This proposal would require the cooperation of Congress, but he can reinstate the DACA amnesty program through executive action.
Asylum seekers camped out in the Mexican border city of Matamoros reportedly celebrated Biden’s perceived victory, eager for a chance to obtain access to the United States’ welfare, public education, healthcare and infrastructure.
Illegal immigration and cheap labor advocates have claimed that porous borders are an inevitability, but the contrast between President Trump’s immigration enforcement and the ramifications from the mere international perception of a Joe Biden administration seems to suggest otherwise.
