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.

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 Arrests More Aliens at Border in February Than Any Year Since 2006

America Last.

Published

Customs and Border Patrol detained more aliens at the southern border in February than any other year since 2006. Nearly 100,000 aliens were arrested last month, according to CBP officials who spoke to Reuters. February isn’t usually a big month for crossings at the southern border, with migrants instead usually preferring to try to enter the United States in the spring and summer months.

The surge in illegal immigration directly follows President Joe Biden’s embrace of “America Last” border and asylum policies. It’s hard to tell if the majority of the aliens remain in detention, have been set free into the country, or have been deported under coronavirus expulsion policies. Biden has all but abolished immigration detention for illegals who have been in the United States for an extended period of time, but the rules surrounding migrants who have been recently caught at the southern border are entirely unclear.

CBP officials are expecting 13,000 unaccompanied minors to arrive at the southern border in the month of May alone, presenting a crisis for an administration that has refused to respond to a surge of illegal migration with anything other than promises of residency, welfare benefits, and taxpayer-funded services.

On Wednesday, CBP apprehended more than 4,500 migrants on a single day, a figure that may very well represent a March record. Less arrests usually mean less aliens are infiltrating the borders, a phenomenon that President Trump’s “America First” immigration policies deterred through a combination of border wall, ‘Remain in Mexico’ asylum policies, and swift deportations of illegals.

The Biden administration has refused to consider any buffed border policies to deter new waves of illegal migrants, with ‘caravan’ style formations of thousands of migrants likely to arrive in the spring and the summer. Asylum seekers have appeared at the southern border wearing Biden campaign shirts, touting the establishment politician’s staunch loyalty to illegal immigrants over working and middle-class American citizens.
