CBP officials accuse Texas Democrat of ‘coaching’ migrants on how to exploit ‘return to Mexico’ loophole

By Jon Dougherty

(NationalSentinel) U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials have accused the Texas Democrat elected to fill former Rep. Robert “Beto” O’Rourke’s El Paso district seat of sending representatives into Mexico to coach migrants on how to exploit a loophole in the Trump administration’s “return to Mexico” policy.

As reported by the Washington Examiner, staffers for Democratic Rep. Veronica Escobar have been reviewing thousands of migrant asylum seekers who have been sent to Mexico under the White House’s new policy, which was agreed to by our southern neighbor, to wait for their cases to be adjudicated in the U.S.

Some officials say Escobar’s representatives have been fraudulently tampering with the procedure.

“What we’re hearing from management is that they’re attempting to return people, and the story was changed in Mexico, where a person who understood Spanish before now doesn’t understand — where a person who didn’t have any health issues before now has health issues,” a representative for the National Border Patrol Council told the news site.

One of the stipulations of the administration’s “remain in Mexico” policy for those seeking asylum is that they can’t be forced to remain in Mexico unless they’re fluent in Spanish because it could be years before their cases are heard.

Some CBP officials say that Escobar’s representatives are bringing some people back from Mexico with them who claim they cannot speak fluent Spanish, though they could before her reps got to them.

The fear among Border Patrol officials, the Washington Examiner notes, is that Escobar and her staff will attempt to use these fabricated cases as a way to accuse the U.S Border Patrol — and, by default, the Trump administration — of improperly sending many immigrants back to Mexico.

“We had finally found a happy medium ’cause we always get crapped on when it comes to immigration laws, and then they’re finding loopholes to bring them back,” a Border Patrol official told the Examiner.

If true, it would mean that Escobar is actively undermining the terms of an international agreement as well as the Executive Branch, which could be a violation of the law.

Notes Frederic L. Kirgis, Law School Alumni Professor at Washington and Lee University School of Law, in Lexington, Va.:

Treaties, in the U. S. sense, are not the only type of binding international agreement. Congressional-Executive agreements and Sole Executive agreements may also be binding. It is generally understood that treaties and Congressional-Executive agreements are interchangeable; Sole Executive agreements occupy a more limited space constitutionally and are linked primarily if not exclusively to the President’s powers as commander in chief and head diplomat.

  1. Escobar, is she related to Drug Cartel- Pablo Escobar? Doesn’t matter now, he’s DEAD, but she needs to be REMOVED FROM OFFICE FOR UNDERMINING AMERICA, BY BEING PART OF “THE ILLEGAL ALIEN INVASION OF AMERICA” AND THUS BEING A ‘TRAITOR TO OUR REPUBLIC’ BY HER ACTIONS OF HELPING ILLEGALS BREAK OUR LAWS.” ENOUGH OF THESE ‘GOVERNMENT EMPLOYED TRAITORS
    WHO DON’T SEEM TO FEEL “THEY HAVE TO OBEY THE CONSTITUTION AND THE PRESENT ADMINISTRATION AND A SITTING POTUS, DONALD J. TRUMP.” CHARGE HER NOW….REMOVE HER.

  2. A woman from El Salvador who married a Mexican man told me that there is no language barrier between them. They basically speak the same language with very small variations. How do these anti-America congress persons get elected on the soil of America? There must be some big loopholes in the election system. Maybe they were elected by non-citizens and less informed citizens.
