The majority of recent border apprehensions are taking place in Texas according to a report by Daniel Friend and Hayden Sparks of The Texan. Since Joe Biden was installed as president, immigration has picked back up as many illegal aliens anticipate lax border enforcement policies coming from the current administration.
According to figures from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) there has been a steady rise in the number of apprehensions at the southwestern border. In particular, there has been a notable increase in the Del Rio border patrol sector.
In the month of January, the number of apprehensions at the border was 75,000, a slight increase from the 71,000 witnessed in December. The last year that border apprehensions were north of 70,000 was 2007, according to the data from the CBP.
Moreover, arrests in Texas sectors have increased significantly over the last decade and a half, which went from 20,000 in 2007 to 50,000 in January. Single adults make up the majority of the encounters. 37,000 of these adults were Mexican nationals and 27,000 were foreign nationals coming from other countries.
11,000 of these January apprehensions were family units, unaccompanied minors, and accompanied minors. In December, there were 7,000 of these apprehensions. In the Lone Star state, family unit apprehension increases were the most significant in the Del Rio sector, which had 1,700 apprehensions. This marked a 172% increase from the 600 Del Rio apprehensions in December.
In a press statement released by CBP, Chief Patrol Agent Austin L. Skero II praised border patrol agents working in the field.
“I am extremely proud of the men and women of Del Rio Sector, who continue to perform their duties with care and compassion,” Skero stated. “Our agents remain focused and are prepared to overcome any challenge in the protection of our nation.”
Mayor Bruno Lozano of Del Rio released a video directed towards President Biden where he urged the federal government to halt the release of immigrants into his area. He argued that this region did not have enough resources to support the migrants during a time when Texas was rocked by an unprecedented winter freeze.
“I am pleading and requesting with you to please put a halt to any measures regarding the release of immigrants awaiting court dates into the city of Del Rio and surrounding areas,” Lozano stated. “We do not have the resources available to house and accommodate these migrants within our community.”
Lozano added that his city is already having trouble taking care of its residents and will not be able to dole out resources to the migrants coming in.
“If you’re going to allow these individuals into our community, I respectfully ask that you provide the means and supplies necessary to accommodate them safely under these extreme circumstances,” Lozano continued.
The Biden administration is a reversion to the neoiberal mean where multiculturalism reigns supreme and the nation-state becomes an afterthought.
Republicans should take note and make a big stink about immigration during the 2022 midterms. Voters will definitely be paying attention to immigration as treasonous politicians bring in migrants during a time when Americans are in dire economic straits.
The Department of Homeland Security Has Plans to Undermine Immigration Enforcement
The Biden administration is working towards a de facto abolition of ICE.
Are Democrats going to appease their radical base by abolishing ICE?
Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is now putting forward a plan to restructure the federal deportation agency in a way that effectively guts its traditional role of arresting and deporting criminal aliens in the country.
According to a Washington Times report by Stephen Dinan, Mayorkas revealed the idea last week in a telephone meeting with ICE personnel in Texas. In this call, Mayorkas proposed taking 4,000 members of ICE off the streets and transitioning them into roles of criminal investigators.
As a result of this proposed change, ICE agents would no longer be working to enforce laws against aliens illegally residing in the U.S. This entails reducing arrests and deportations.
A number of deportation officers said this move was similar to a major city police department shifting its beat cops into detective roles. As a result of this change, no one would be left to patrol the streets for lesser crimes.
“This is an administrative abolishment of ICE as we currently know it,” an ICE source told The Washington Times.
After the phone call, there were still many questions regarding Mayorkas’ intentions with ICE. Questions about what new training ICE agents would have to go through and the pay structure they would be subject to were not addressed.
According to The Washington Times, Mayorkas was of the opinion that ICE officers were in the wrong pay system. Mayorkas allegedly said that deportation officers are in the wrong pay scale but did suggest the idea of a pay raise.
Under the current federal government job system, deportation officers are categorized as GS-1801 jobs and usually fall under GS-12 pay scale. Criminal investigators hold GS-1811 jobs and fall under the GS-13 pay scale.
Mayorkas’ ploy is to use the promotion offers as a way to get ICE agents on board with his plan to gut deportation enforcement plans.
However, one source revealed that many officers feared that they were being forced out of their original jobs.
“It’s all spin,” the source declared. “We’re not going to abolish ICE, but we really are going to abolish ICE as you know it.”
The abolition of ICE is one of the chief slogans for the multicultural Left in recent years, which is committed to importing destabilization levels of migrants.
How ICE’s abolition would look is “tougher to pin down” as Dinan outlined.
They usually aren’t talking about investigating smugglers, street gangs or child pornographers. Homeland Security Investigations, with its 7,000-strong force of GS-1811 criminal investigators, perform those duties.
So far, the “Abolish ICE” crowd is in opposition to the Enforcement and Removal Operations, which is generally tasked with arrests, detention, and deportation of people illegally in the country.
Dinan listed off where the majority of these arrests came from:
Most of those arrests come from deportation officers picking up people who end up in local prisons or jails. But some fraction are at-large arrests in the community — particularly in areas where state and local sanctuary policies block access to prisons or jails.
The administrative tweaks Mayorkas is implementing are indeed a way to defang ICE in a subtle manner. A traditional legislative effort would likely cause massive backlash from voters who would likely take their anger out on politicians at the polls in 2022.
Border security is crucial in maintaining a stable polity. Republicans who have any iota of nationalism in their bones would take this issue and run with it.
Immigration still remains an issue that resonates well with the grassroots.
