President Trump Considering Extension of Strict Coronavirus Border Security Policies

Customs and Border Patrol has been promptly expelling illegal aliens.

President Donald Trump is considering an extension of protocols deterring illegal immigration enacting during the coronavirus national emergency, according to new reports from the New York Times.

A draft proposal to extend temporary restrictions on illegal travel was published on Wednesday. “I am extending the duration of the order until I determine that the danger of further introduction of Covid-19 into the United States has ceased to be a danger to the public health.

Immigration enforcement agencies such as Customs and Border Patrol have been enforcing rules that strictly deter illegal immigration under Title 42 of the U.S. code during the national emergency. The law authorizes the agency to “expel” illegal border crossers in a prompt fashion, with the agency remarkably expelling 80% of illegal immigrants to arrive in the month of April in under two hours.

The border enforcement policies during the coronavirus emergency are likely the most strict that the federal government has ever utilized in decades, contributing to a deterrence of illegal immigration that has required nearly a hundred thousand less “enforcement actions” than the agency took in April of 2019. The population of federal immigration detention facilities has also declined considerably, with only 150 people detained by the government in April.

Enforcing a strict border security policy that works around the byzantine and convoluted immigration court system may ultimately prove to be in the national interest for the long-term. A trial run of the approach could be the first step towards codifying a no-tolerance approach for illegal immigration after the pandemic is over.

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

He was allegedly working with the drug smugglers.

Published

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.
