The Pentagon is deploying more than 160 service members to the US-Mexico border in advance of a potential wave crossing of illegal immigrants. The Department of Homeland Security is projecting that large numbers of migrants will attempt to cross into the United States if the Trump administration’s migration-reducing ‘Stay in Mexico’ policy is overturned by the liberal Ninth Circuit Court.
80 troops are deploying to the Border Patrol’s sector in El Paso, Texas, and another 80 to California.
The Trump administration’s Stay in Mexico program, also known as the Migrant Protection Protocols, has proven to be a game changer in reducing flows of illegal immigration. The program requires asylum seekers to remain in Mexico while their legal cases for asylum are processed through the immigration court system. It effectively cuts off funding to the criminal smuggling system, as migrants cannot pay back loans to smugglers without access to the American jobs market.
The Ninth Circuit Court declared the policy to be illegal in February, a decision that was quickly met by a rush of migrants waiting in Mexico to the US border. The program is in place until March 12th, pending a Supreme Court appeal that Justice Department officials are seeking.
Should the program be allowed to lapse without Supreme Court intervention, DHS is expecting a large inflow of people from the roughly 60,000 migrants waiting in Mexico for the adjudication of their cases in the immigration courts.
There is reason to believe the Ninth Circuit Court’s efforts to undermine the policy won’t prove permanently successful, however. The Trump administration has obtained a successful track record in overturning the liberal circuit’s court decisions at the Supreme Court, a development that has incensed some of the left-wing justices on the court.
Arizona Border Patrol Officer Stabbed Multiple Times, Shoots and Kills Criminal Alien
A Border Patrol officer patrolling the US-Mexico border shot and killed a man who stabbed him multiple times in Southern Arizona on Monday night.
CBP officials reported that the unnamed agent was patrolling near the transnational city of Nogales, Arizona, when he encountered a group of individuals he suspected to be aliens entering the country illegally. One man accompanying them group attacked the agent when he sought to apprehend the aliens, stabbing him multiple times.
The CBP agent went on to fatally shoot the alien, who may have been a smuggler moving a group of illegal migrants across the border. Deputies of the Santa Cruz Sheriff’s Office were called to provide backup, and the Border Patrol agent that was stabbed had to be airlifted to a Tucson hospital early on Tuesday morning. Fortunately, he was released from the hospital later the same day.
Cartel-affiliated criminal smugglers have increasingly sought to infiltrate the United States in Arizona, hoping to avoid a buffed border patrol presence in Texas and new wall construction in the most trafficked areas of the border.
Preliminary reports indicate that the Border Patrol agent may have been alone when he encountered the smuggler’s group of criminal aliens, a hazard that has resulted in violent attacks on Border Patrol agents by cartel-affiliated criminals before.
The FBI is reportedly investigating the incident. It’s unclear if the group of aliens encountered by the agent have been expelled under special coronavirus immigration regulations, transferred into the custody of immigration detention, or simply allowed to proceed into the country.
