Texas Border Town Overwhelmed by Mass Migration

Published

on

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.

GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis Follows Democrat Orders, Locks Down Florida After Media Pressure Campaign

Published

on

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis issued a statewide shelter order on Wednesday, April 1, 2020 in response to the Wuhan Virus pandemic.

“I’m going to be doing an executive order today directing all Floridians to limit movements and personal interactions outside the home to only those necessary,” he stated. “To obtain or provide essential services or conduct essential activities.”

DeSantis’s order will go into effect at 12:01 a.m. on Friday and will last for 30 days.

If any “essential service” was missed in the initial executive order, the governor says it can be tacked on.

DeSantis claimed he consulted with the White House and had a conversation with President Donald Trump about the decision. He noted that the White House Wuhan Virus task force’s extended guidelines from Tuesday night shaped DeSantis’ decision, describing the president’s move a “national pause.”

“We’re going to be in this for another 30 days,” he declared. “At this point, even though there’s a lot of places in Florida that have very low infection rates, it makes sense to make this move now.”

DeSantis has taken advantage of this situation by pushing forward infrastructure programs. The Florida governor ordered that $2.1 billion in transportation projects be accelerated. These projects include the Howard Frankland bridge project in Tampa Bay.

Sadly, it appears that the Florida Governor has capitulated to Democrat demands to shut down the entire state, even though the Democrat cities infested with the disease are already on lock down. Thirteen left-wing members of Congress led by Debbie Wasserman-Schultz lead a media campaign by signing a letter to the governor earlier this week calling for him to issue the order.

The Wuhan Virus saga demonstrates the unforeseen costs of globalization, where basic civil liberties have to be suspended due to the problems that globalist policies cause.

Mass migration and free trade come with lots of hidden costs and increase the likelihood of generalized crises like the Wuhan Virus pandemic to occur.
