The Majority of Asylum Seekers at the Southern Border are Mexicans

Published

on

So far, the Trump administration’s “Remain in Mexico” policy has been a success.

The number of Central American migrants applying for asylum has dropped considerably because of how asylum seekers must now wait in Mexico for their cases to be heard instead of being released into the U.S.

While the wave of asylum seekers from Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua have fallen, Mexican nationals have replaced them. Many of these Mexican asylum seekers are claiming that cartel violence is getting worse and they are fleeing in fear for their lives.

Regardless of their reasoning, Mexicans now comprise half of asylum seekers at the southern border according to a report from PJ Media. Given that Mexicans are not subject to the “Remain in Mexico” policy, the Trump administration has had to tackle this matter in a unique way.

American authorities are now using a policy known as “metering”, which admits relatively small numbers of Mexican asylum seekers on a daily basis. Ken Cuccinelli, the acting deputy secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, declared that Mexican nationals requesting asylum in America could be moved to Guatemala instead of being allowed to wait in the United States for their asylum claim to be processed.

Whatever policy the Trump administration pursues, it’s very likely it will be challenged in court.

The White House is currently bogged down in court battles over policies limiting the flow of asylum seekers, which include requiring the migrants to first apply for refugee status in Mexico, or whatever country they decide to enter after they leave their country of origin, before requesting asylum in America.

The Ninth Circuit is currently considering arguments dealing with the constitutionality of the orders, after the Supreme Court ruled back in September that the remain in Mexico policy can stay in place as legal challenges progress

Last year more than 300,000 Central Americans arrived in Mexico illegally, with 80 percent of them heading to the U.S. border, according to Mexico’s interior minister, Olga Sánchez Cordero.

Former acting DHS secretary Kevin McAleenan stated last August that border crossings went down over the summer, with apprehensions falling 43 percent since May. Last May, arrests between ports of entry at the southern border rose for the fourth consecutive month to 132,887.

Although these are solid ways to stem the flow of the current mass migration waves afflicting the U.S., there will need to be more solid reform such as the construction of a wall and the abolition of certain migration magnets such as birthright citizenship and chain migration.

The immigration crisis America is facing is filled with tremendous political implications. Not addressing these matters head on will put the American nation-state on the brink of collapse and  potentially usher in an era of globalist government — a far cry from what the Founding Fathers had in mind for this country.

Houston Police Allow Abortion Clinic to Operate Despite Texas Courts Ruling Them Non-Essential

Published

on

On March 30th, a judge ruled that Texas abortion clinics could stay open. This ruling came a few days after the Texas governor, Greg Abbott, deemed abortion servies non-essential.

Since abortions are clearly elective surgeries, the ruling was overturned by a vote of 2-1 in the 5th circuit court of appeals on March 31st. Meaning, the governor’s order stands and abortion clinics must close until non-essential businesses are allowed to open back up.

This hasn’t stopped one abortion clinic in Houston from continuing to kill the unborn.

In a video released on April 1st, via the YouTube channel ‘ProofThatGodExists,’ an abortion clinic in Houston is shown to still be accepting clients.

A couple of pro-life activists are shown in the video standing outside the abortion clinic. Across the street is a police officer, with whom one of the activists eventually talks.

They tell the offiicer that the abortion offices are still seeing clients. The officer acknowledges their concerns and says, “we’ll take care of it.”

A few minutes later, the officer goes to talk to the pro-life activists. The officer informed the activists that he was just there to “keep the peace” and nothing else.

One of the activists again informed the officer of the situation, asking, “Do you know that it’s illegal for them to do abortions today?” The officer replied, “I’m not out here for that.”

The activist then reiterated that he was asking him not why he was there, but if he personally knew of the current order. He wanted to know if the officer was not enforcing because he didn’t know about the order or because his department was choosing to ignore it in this case.

The officer didn’t want to answer directly. So, he again said, “I’m not saying that what you’re saying is wrong…. But that’s not what I’m out here for. I’m out here to keep the peace….”

He then said, “Whoever you need to call to enforce what you’re asking me about…” He was interupted by the second activist, who challenged him, insisting, “When people are breaking the law, we call the police.”

The video continues on with many more women entering the clinic. Eventually the abortion doctor arrived to the clinic, as well.

It’s clear that the clinic is in direct violation of the order that declares abortion services non-essential. Why the Houston police aren’t enforcing the order as it pertains to this particular clinic is still unclear.
