The city of McAllen, Texas is being overwhelmed by mass migration.
The Wall Street Journal provided a sobering overview of how out of control the current migration crisis is getting:
From the start of the federal fiscal year in October through February, the Border Patrol arrested 136,150 people traveling as families for crossing the border illegally, according to data released Tuesday. The prior record for a 12-month period was 107,212, during the fiscal year that ended last September.
ZeroHedge reported how President Trump put Mexico on notice by threatening to close the border if it doesn’t get its act together with regards to illegals entering the U.S.
Even the mainstream media, who have downplayed Trump’s emergency declaration, are acknowledging that there is a growing crisis at the border. USA Today published a story on Saturday, April 30, 2019 about how the city of McAllen has seen its public resources stretched to the limit as asylum seekers enter the city at the tune of 800 people per day.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has been compelled to release more asylum seekers as they wait for their immigration hearings. McAllen is where the migrants are heading as they pile up in church settlements within the city limits.
McAllen City Manager Roy Rodriguez commented on the unprecedented flow of migrants, saying that “It’s staggering.”
Rodriguez continued, “Really, we’ve never seen anything like this before.”
The border patrol is already on track to capture 100,000 migrants during March, which sets a new monthly record.
Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin McAleenan, while giving a speech in El Paso, declared that the border crisis has come to a “breaking point”. He called on Congress to take action, although Congress has proven to be a thorn in Trump’s side so far when it comes to implementing border security.
McAleenan said, “The surge numbers are just overwhelming the system”.
Migrants who have gone through the first round of the asylum process arrive in McAllen and are then released to Catholic charities in town, which are becoming strained by the inflow of migrants.
ZeroHedge reported that Sister Norma Pimentel, an overseer at one of the charity shelters, said “she received a phone call two weekends ago from a Border Patrol official warning that the numbers were about to skyrocket. The next day, around 800 migrants showed up to the shelter.”
The flood of migrants continued this week:
On Wednesday, clusters of migrants crowded the halls of the center. Lines stretched down long halls, as migrants waited to use the shower or pick up diapers. Teams of volunteers called migrants’ relatives to get bus tickets. Every 20 minutes or so, a new tour bus would drive up and deliver another 50 migrants into the shelter.
In light of this growing chaos, the McAllen City Manager Roy Rodriguez said he’s tasked several city officials to handle the problem and the city is now spending thousands of taxpayer dollars daily on buses and other services.
With Trump’s border wall now receiving $1 billion in funding from the Pentagon, situations like the one in McAllen could now be averted.
Nevertheless, the immigration issue continues to be priority #1 for Republican voters, as BLP reported last week.
GOP voters fear that mass migration could potentially tear up the economic and social fabric of the U.S. and turn otherwise pristine areas into ghettoes.
The recent McAllen case demonstrates that President Trump and his constituency’s fears about mass migration may be well-founded after all.
Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting
They say they’re not changing their name.
The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.
To correct multiple inaccurate reports, “We Are Great Commission Baptists” is the 2021 Annual Meeting THEME.
The GCB descriptor was approved in 2012 for churches to use if it would be helpful in their local context.
The Southern Baptist Convention remains our official name.
— SBC Executive Committee (@SBCExecComm) September 17, 2020
But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.
Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.
The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.
The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.
It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
