The acting Administrator of the U.S. Agency for International Development is warning of a possible rush of illegal immigration from Mexico and Central America to the United States, citing the economic damages inflicted upon the region by the coronavirus recession. John Barsa made the prediction in an interview with the Washington Examiner on last week.
“If there is economic collapse in a given country, it is only natural that there will be migration flows to places where the economy is more robust,” warned Barsa. “Are we concerned about the economic impacts that this might have, which could lead to migration? Absolutely.”
The phenomenon Barsa is describing appears similar to the well-documented ‘caravan’ formations of economic migrants, who traveled through Mexico from Central America in pursuit of asylum in the United States in 2018.
Economic downturn in the region could very well result in a new wave of caravans, even though President Donald Trump has since instituted a “remain in Mexico” asylum policy that prevents illegal immigrants from entering the United States while their asylum cases are litigated in the immigration court system. Remain in Mexico has proven a game changer in deterring illegal immigration, with caravans having essentially ceased since 2018.
Another official of the Agency for International Development, which works to deter illegal immigration through grant assistance and foreign aid to Central American countries, has said that high levels of unemployment may dampen the possibility of mass illegal immigration. If large groups of illegal migrants arrived anyway, their presence in the United States could prove devastating to the job and wage prospects of blue-collar American workers reeling from the damage inflicted to the construction industry and others facets of the American economy from coronavirus.
“How do you measure the number of refugees that come out of that level of devastation?” Warned the USAID official of the potential for mass illegal immigration as a result of the recession. “You can’t put a number on it, but it’s reasonable to say that it would be completely unprecedented.“
Mexican Government Reported that Nearly 80,000 People are Still Missing
Mexico Spirals Out of Control While Joe Biden Promises Mass Amnesty
According to a report released by the Mexican government on November 25, 2020, over 79,500 people are still missing in Mexico.
This comes in the backdrop of Mexico’s infamous military offensive against drug cartels in 2006. Since the erstwhile president Felipe’s military offensive against drug cartels, the number of missing people in Mexico has skyrocketed.
Before 2006, there were 1,500 disappearances in Mexico, per statistics that Deputy Human Rights Minister Alejandro Encina put forward. Since July, there have been roughly 6,300 new cases reported.
Encina observed, however, that the number of disappearances have dropped since 2019.
Mexico is notorious for its alarming levels of violence, which is largely perpetuated by organized crime. In 2019, 34,582 people were murdered. So far in 2020, 26,431 people have been murdered from January to September.
Encinas claimed that Mexican authorities have discovered 1,399 mass graves in Mexico over the past two years. Of the 2,290 bodies discovered in the graves, 879 have been identified.
Mexico is not in good shape and that’s putting it lightly. America at least recognized this with Donald Trump in office. Trump was elected on an America First platform which stressed tough policies on the border and was not willing tolerate mass immigration like his predecessors.
Sadly, the apparent president-Joe Biden is more concerned with trying to pass mass amnesty for 11 million illegal aliens and freezing deportations for 100 days.
Securing our Southern border is a recognition of the cold, hard truth that Mexico is falling apart, and it’s institutional and social rot could potentially make its way up north. Much to America’s chagrin, the next occupant of the White House will likely not recognize that. Should fraud allegations fail to invalidate the current results of the 2020 elections, America First patriots must act accordingly and make immigration a massive issue during the 2022 midterms, both in the primaries and general election.
