Here it comes: Border Patrol gets ready for surge of up to half a million more “migrants” this month

Share:

US-MEXICO BORDER- We hate to sound like a broken record, but the Biden administration is overseeing the greatest invasion of our country in our 245-year history, with no signs of it stopping.

The most fundamental duty of the federal government is to protect the country from “all enemies, foreign and domestic.” On that front, the Biden-Harris administration has been an abject failure

Just weeks removed from an invasion of an estimated 10-15,000 Haitian illegals, the country is ready to see an invasion ten times that number. Biden couldn’t make the southern border more open if he posted “OPEN” signs flashing on the US side of the Rio Grande.

 

 

Earlier this year, Kamala Harris was put in charge of the border crisis, with the closest she’s been to where the real problems are is El Paso, around 500 miles from where the problems are.

Oh, she traveled to the so-called “Northern Triangle” in search of what the administration calls the “root causes” of the illegal alien invasion, but for some reason still hasn’t gotten it figured out. Meanwhile, she had plenty of time to go to California to campaign for “Brylcreem” Gavin Newsom.

Given that Harris is apparently clueless as to why illegals are flooding our border, maybe we can help her out.

  • The United States, as the greatest country on earth with the most opportunity and freedom, is a beacon of hope;
  • The illegals are able to avail themselves of generous benefits courtesy of the U.S. taxpayers;
  • The places they are escaping from are (generally) not able to provide the number of social benefits or opportunities provided by the U.S. government, courtesy of the American taxpayer;

What also doesn’t help is the clearly mixed messages coming from Biden and his team of inept rookies in the administration.

Take for example Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, who on one hand says the border is closed, then turns around and says people crossing into the U.S. illegally “is one of our proudest traditions.”

As if that weren’t bad enough, the administration has helped to facilitate a cottage industry of smugglers among Mexican cartels, getting paid handsomely to get illegals across the border illegally.

Despite the mainstream media, social media tech tyrants and Democrats claiming that the ‘Rona is the worst thing to hit since the bubonic plague, the same three entities have no problem encouraging illegals, many of whom are infected with the virus and most who have not been vaccinated, into the country.

Despite fearmongering among the left and Biden threatening to put millions of Americans out of work with his coronavirus mandates on business, business is booming for cartels.

NBC News reported this week that the administration is preparing for an onslaught of illegal alien migrants heading for the U.S. this month.

The network reported that “U.S. officials are quietly preparing for what they think could be the biggest surge in traffic at the southern border in decades if a Covid restriction that has blocked most migrants for almost two years is lifted Thursday.”

During a conference call with senior DHS officials this week, Mayorkas asked if the department was prepared to handle 350,000-400,000 illegal alien migrants coming across the border in October, according to two DHS officials familiar with the call.

That number if true would nearly double the 21-year record just reached in July when more than 210,000 migrants crossed the border.

That Covid restriction—known as Title 42 and put in place by President Trump—could possibly be overturned by Biden in order to allow the illegal (hoped to be Democrat voters) aliens into the country. The administration claims they’ve been using the restriction to return migrant individuals and families back out of the country, however, are allowing unaccompanied minors to remain.

That seems however to be pretty much a lie, since Mayorkas himself recently revealed that over 12,000 Haitian migrants—most of whom have been living in South America for the last several years—had been released into the United States while the asylum claim is being processed.

Unbelievably the feckless Mayorkas expressed “surprise” at the “tragic rise” of the Delta variant of the Wuhan China Virus at the southern border.

In a case of “dueling judges,” one federal judge ordered the Biden administration to resume the Trump-era “remain in Mexico” policy, while an activist judge whom you’ll surely recognize ordered the administration to end the Title 42 program on asylum seekers.

That judge, Emmett Sullivan has as his claim to fame messing with the personal liberty of Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn. That stay was short-lived however as the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals granted a stay on Sullivan’s order, allowing the government to resume the evictions.

If the Court of Appeals order is somehow overturned by an activist Supreme Court justice, officials worry that a surge could start anew, further straining border patrol agents and the country.

All of this shows that chief White House propagandist Jen Psaki’s claims that the flood of migrants at the southern border is “cyclical” or “seasonal” is a crock.

However in leaked audio, Mayorkas sings a different tune. In leaked audio, Mayorkas admitted that the situation at the southern border is unsustainable, which the person really running the show (as Nancy Pelosi let slip), Barack Obama agrees with.

“We’re a nation-state. We have borders. The idea that we can just have open borders is something that I think as a practical matter, is unsustainable.”

In March, the U.S. Border Patrol said they expected over a million illegal immigrants crossing the border in 2021. By the end of the June, that number was surpassed, with over a million apprehensions, not including those who managed to get away. Then came the surge of Haitians primarily from Central and South America.

All of this adds up to over 1.2 million illegals entering the country this year, with potentially hundreds of thousands more on the way.

In case you missed it, here’s one of our earlier reports on the illegal aliens crossing our southern border:

DIG DEEPER

WASHINGTON, D.C.- In an op-ed for Fox News, National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd has announced that President Joe Biden has added nearly one million illegal immigrants to the United States population since taking office in late January. 

Judd stated that the total number of border crossers Biden has released into the United States, including Unaccompanied Alien Children (UACs), family units, and single adults is upwards of 600,000 since January. 

He wrote about the Del Rio Bridge in Texas, spanning the Rio Grande River from Mexico to the United States and how it has become the scene of the largest makeshift camp of illegal immigrants and some of the most inhumane conditions imaginable in the history of the U.S. Border Patrol. He said:

“By now, the world has viewed the constant aerial and ground footage as we all witness the largest single illegal immigration event in our history. But, unless you are on the ground at the bridge every day to personally witness the smell, noise, confusion, pain and suffering it is hard to understand just how bad the situation really is.”

The massive Catch and Release operation ensures border crossers and illegal immigrants are released into the U.S. with only notices to appear in immigration court or notices to report to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency (ICE). 

Data from 2019 found 9-in-10 border crossers given the notice to appear in immigration court never show up to their court hearings. Instead, the overwhelming majority live illegally across the United States.

Judd stated that the 600,000 border crossers are in addition to the more than 300,000 illegal immigrants the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has estimated have successfully crossed into the U.S. via the southern border over the last eight months. Judd wrote:

“Catch-and-release is the single biggest driver of illegal immigration right now. If we reward people for crossing our borders illegally, they will continue to come …

Although official statistics are difficult to come by, as Sen. Ron Johnson discovered on Tuesday, agents will tell you over 600,000 of the illegal border crossers have been released into the U.S. under catch-and-release since Biden took office eight months ago.”

He added:

“Add that to the more than 300,000 illegal border crossers that were detected but evaded apprehension, otherwise known as ‘gotaways’ and this administration has added almost 1 million illegal aliens to our population this year alone. And the year isn’t over yet.”

Judd continued:

“This is the reason we have a border crisis. This is the reason Texas Governor Greg Abbott is being forced to deploy state resources to the border. And this is another reason the American public should be outraged.”

The estimates come as DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas revealed that the Biden administration has released at least 12,000 Haitian border crossers into the U.S. interior over the last couple weeks.

As previously reported, the recent mass release of Haitians into the U.S. interior by Biden’s DHS was in response to a surge of about 15,000 Haitian border crossers taking shelter by the makeshift camp in Del Rio, Texas. Judd wrote:

“On the campaign trail, Biden promised an orderly and humane immigration system. If what we are seeing now is humane, the world better brace itself for what the president considers inhumane.”

Judd concluded his op-ed by saying:

“The natural byproduct of defunding police is dangerously diminishing the safety of the American public that law enforcement is charged with protecting. Without our rule of law, we quickly become no better than the countries the illegal border crossers are fleeing.”

TX Democrat judge invites Biden to see “challenges being created by current policy” at southern border

August 3rd, 2021

HIDALGO COUNTY, TX – In late July, a Democrat judge from Hidalgo County had reportedly invited President Joe Biden to “witness first-hand the challenges being created by current policy” with regard to the southern border.

The letter drafted by the judge cited that there needs to be “immediate and decisive action” taken in order to properly deal with the issues caused by the surge of illegal immigration impacting the state.

On July 30th, Hidalgo County Judge Richard Cortez sent a letter to President Biden requesting the likes of federal resources and manpower to help address the issues caused by the massive influx in illegal immigrants crossing into the country via the southern border.

Judge Cortez requested that there also be an “immediate cessation” of admitting illegal immigrants into the Border Patrol’s Rio Grande Valley Sector.

This letter followed another statement released by Judge Cortez on July 27th, where he called for federal authorities to cease releasing migrants into the community that are positive for COVID:

“We have been doing well as a community in slowing the spread of this deadly virus. But ill-conceived policies by both the federal and state governments are beginning to have serious consequences on Hidalgo County. I call on federal immigration officials to stop releasing infected migrants into our community.”

While Judge Cortez clearly feels that there are issues stemming from the southern border and illegal immigration, he was among those in Texas who opposed Governor Greg Abbott’s effort to declare the illegal immigration impacting the state as a “disaster”:

“I appreciate Governor Abbott’s concern for the safety of all Texans and I acknowledge that we are seeing a greater number of immigrants crossing into Texas to either seek asylum, to work or for other purposes.

Apparently, Governor Abbott has information that we don’t have and speaking to local law enforcement, they have not reported levels of criminal activity that would require a disaster proclamation.”

This flip-flopping of Judge Cortez’s take on the southern border has sparked criticism from some of his critics.

Monica De La Cruz-Hernandez, who is running for Texas’ 15th Congressional District, shared the following on Twitter after news of Judge Cortez’s July 30th letter made the rounds:

“Hidalgo County Judge REFUSED to sign the Abbot Border Disaster Declaration that would have helped our area.  Not once in the KRGV article does he ask Rep Gonzalez for help!  And this is because he PERSONALLY knows him. Why?  Democrats simply DO NOT care.  Vote them out!”

Democrat officials in Texas have been voicing frustration over the border crisis in recent months, with some feeling as though the current administration is not doing enough to counter the detrimental effects of the surge in illegal immigration. 

Back in May, we at Law Enforcement Today shared a report where a Democrat sheriff in Texas noted that if change doesn’t come on approaching the southern border, it’s “only going to get worse.”

Here’s that previous report. 

_

VAL VERDE COUNTY, TX – During a recent appearance on Fox News Channel’s “Faulkner Focus”, the Val Verde County Sheriff shared his perspective on the ongoing crisis impacting the southern border.

According to the Val Verity County Sheriff, if appropriate action isn’t taken then the border crisis is “only going to get worse.”

On May 14th, Val Verde County Sheriff Joe Frank Martinez made an appearance on Fox News Channel’s “Faulkner Focus” to describe the current situation at the southern border from his perspective.

The sheriff proclaimed that the border crisis that has adversely affected Val Verde County is of the likes of which the county has never seen before:

“Well, this is something that has not taken place in this part of our county ever. This is the first time we’ve experienced something like this. So, it’s overburdened our federal partners, U.S. Border Patrol, who are doing everything they can to handle the situation.”

Sheriff Martinez understands the motivations of some of the people illegally crossing into the country, being sympathetic to those that are simply trying to flee from impoverished areas.

However, the sheriff says that some sort of a “legal process” needs to be crafted and put into place:

“But we see these immigrants that are coming across fleeing their home country looking for a better way of life, you’ve got to feel for these individuals. But at the same time, there has to be a system in place that allows them a legal process. But it’s heartbreaking to watch some of these family units dragging their small children across a river risking their life.”

After acknowledging the dangers associated with people illegally entering the country by way of crossing the Rio Grande, Sheriff Martinez says that ignoring the problem is going to result an unnecessary loss of life from those making the dangerous trek:

“I wish that a decision be made one way or the other as to [how] to stop this. Because more people are going to die. Our state partners are involved in car chases every day. People are — there [are] accidents, they’re going through fences and stuff. People are going to die trying to come here.”

Despite officials in Washington D.C. fighting over semantics regarding what to call the situation at the southern border, Sheriff Martinez put it plainly when saying that the problem is “only going to get worse,” if not addressed:

“So, we need to put a stop to this nonsense until we come up with a solution. Because it’s only going to get worse. People are going to continue to come.”

Earlier in May, we at Law Enforcement Today shared a report pertaining to a Senate hearing where DHS Secretary Mayorkas was being questioned regarding some of his phrasing when discussing the southern border back in March. 

Here’s that previous report. 

_

WASHINGTON, DC – Senator Josh Hawley called into question DHS Secretary Mayorkas’ memory during a recent Senate hearing earlier in May, after Secretary Mayorkas proclaimed to have no memory regarding a direct quote he made during a White House briefing back in March.

During a Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee hearing on May 13th, President Joe Biden’s Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas claimed to have no memory of using the words “we’re not saying don’t come,” in regard to migrants venturing to the southern border.

This proclamation by the DHS Secretary came after Senator Hawley was attributing a direct quote to him during a line of question that went as follows:

“You did say that ‘we’re not telling you not to come,’ right? You said that. You remember that?”

Secretary Mayorkas responded with:

“I’m sorry senator, I do apologize, I…”

Senator Hawley restated the question for the DHS Secretary, saying:

“You remember saying, don’t you, that ‘we’re not telling you not to come,’ those were your words. Those were your words that you said in a press conference. You said that, right?”

From there, Secretary Mayorkas proclaimed to have no memory of saying the aforementioned quote attributed to him:

“I don’t recall saying that. I don’t believe…”

In a rather surprised tone, Senator Hawley retorted with:

“You don’t recall saying that?”

Once again, Secretary Mayorkas reiterated that the quote attributed to him are words that he doesn’t remember speaking:

“That’s correct senator.”

Seemingly surprised that the DHS Secretary doubled-down on claiming to not remember the quote, Senator Hawley responded with:

“We’d be happy to refresh your memory for you in some question. I’m sure that is interesting news…there secretary just said that he doesn’t have any memory of making those comments. That’s extraordinary.”

Diverting from the inquiries regarding the quote attributed to him, Secretary Mayorkas stated that he’s never explicitly said that the southern border is “open”:

“Senator, I have never said that the border is open.”

While Secretary Mayorkas claims to have a foggy memory regarding the quote attributed to him, a March 1st White House press briefing shows that he did say what Senator Hawley inquired about during the Senate hearing.

The briefing said, in part:

“We are progressing every single day, I don’t have a particular timeline, but all I can do is communicate – both to the American public and to the individuals seeking protection that we are working around the clock, 7 days a week to make that timeframe as short as possible.

“But they need to wait. But they need to wait with a particular goal in mind. We are not saying ‘don’t come,’ we are saying ‘don’t come now,’ because we will be able to deliver a safe and orderly process to them as quickly as possible.”

You can view the entire line of questioning during the Senate hearing by Senator Hawley toward DHS Secretary Mayorkas below.
