(National Sentinel) Overrun: Illegal migrants from Mexico and Latin America, as well as other countries, are continuing to pour across the southwestern U.S. border, even as RINOs and Democrats in Congress continue to refuse POTUS Donald Trump’s border wall funding requests.
The House recently passed a monstrous spending bill but not one red cent was earmarked for the border wall. Meanwhile, another half-billion in taxpayer dollars for Planned Parenthood was included.
Meanwhile, Border Patrol officials report that illegal traffic into the U.S. is continuing virtually unabated, as the Washington Examiner reports:
Border Patrol agents are apprehending an increasing number of migrant groups that include more than 100 people on the northern side of the U.S.-Mexico border, and recorded two more incidents this week.
The total number of people found in large caravans wandering through southern Arizona in recent weeks now stands at 1,200, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
Agents based at Ajo Station in south-central Arizona found a group of 164 people and another that included about 100 people in the desert just north of Mexican city Sonoyta Tuesday afternoon, a press release issued Thursday stated.
Every person in the group was taken in by federal law enforcement agents and determined to be from three Central American countries: El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras. The caravan members were between the ages of 11 months and 59 years.
Moving groups of 100-200 illegals into the U.S. at a time has become a new tactic for human traffickers and cartel-linked smugglers, the Border Patrol says.
Smugglers’ new tactics include moving dozens of people into the U.S. at a time, many believed to be family units or posing as family units, where they then surrender to federal officials.
“Smugglers and traffickers know our loopholes well. The lack of legal tools creates pull factors that invite families to cross the border, because they know upon apprehension we will be required by courts to release them into the interior of our country,” DHS spokeswoman Katie Waldman told the news site in a statement.
Walls work. That’s why other countries build them.
