Troops Deployed to U.S-Mexico Border In Preparation for Wave of Illegal Immigration

The wave could follow the end of the Migrant Protection Protocols.

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.

Meanwhile in Mexico…9 People Killed At a Wake in the State of Guanajuato

America must bolster its border security.

The Independent reported that gunmen killed nine people at a wake in the central Mexican state of Guanajuato on January 7, 2020.

Law enforcement officials in the city of Celaya revealed in a statement that gunmen showed up late that night and began firing on a group of people. The event was held in an impoverished neighborhood where residents mourned a young man who fell to gun fire a few days prior. 

According to David Saucedo, a security analyst based in Guanajuato, the Jalisco New Generation Cartel carried out the attack against the deceased man’s family. The gunmen believed that the family was connected to the competing Santa Rosa de Lima gang, although many may not have connections with the gang. 

“At that wake, a lot of innocent people died,” Saucedo observed.

Guanajuato is a flashpoint for a violent proxy war between major drug cartels. Since 2017, the Santa Rosa de Lima gang has fended off the fast-rising Jalisco cartel in a bloody turf war. Although law enforcement arrested the leader of the Santa Rosa de Lima gang back in August, the violence has not gone away According to Saucedo, the Sinaloa cartel has intervened in this struggle to keep the Jalisco cartel from securing a foothold in Guanajuato. They’ve sent weapons, financial aid, and gunmen to prop up Santa Rosa de Lima and other local gangs.

With so much drama taking place stateside, we often forget that Mexico is a failed state. Similarly, the outrage stemming from the Wuhan virus pandemic largely overshadowed issues of border security and immigration. However, this should not lessen the importance of the immigration issue. 

As Mexico continues tearing itself apart, America must bolster its border security. Unfortunately, the incoming President Joe Biden is not up to task and will prioritize weak border enforcement and a potential amnesty for illegal aliens. America will suffer greatly as a result.
