Why the mass migration crisis is more severe than official reporting suggests
NEAR VALENTINE, Texas – Border Patrol officers in five of their iconic green and white Suburbans knew that the desert brush stretching to very distant mountains was not as empty or flat as it might seem to more oblivious eyes.
Coordinating with in-vehicle radio handsets on a recent late-April morning, the agents hunted what one described as a “sizeable” group of illegal immigrants a surveillance camera spotted earlier and who felt prompted to hide in place. Some agents cruised slowly along Highway 90, known for smuggler pick-ups of groups that had hiked from the border for days.
Other agents slowly hiked the arroyo-riveted land or rumbled their vehicles off-road hoping to flush the immigrants, guided by directions from a “scope truck” with a retractable high-tech lens tower in the bed.
But after an hour of this, the supervisor called off the search. The agents all accelerated away in a convoy north up Highway 90, their prey having gotten away.
But these immigrants will still count in the government books for winning that one, as a collected statistic so politically sensitive that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) never discloses it to the public: They will be logged in databases as “known got-aways”
OJINAGA, Mexico — The nine Central Americans walked single file from a Mexican customs building at the Presidio-Ojinaga International Bridge and out onto the street with no food, no plan, and the heavy burden of bad luck.
The U.S. Border Patrol had caught them on a ranch about 80 or 100 miles inside Texas following a six-day wilderness trek and, under the so-called Title 42 pandemic-containment policy now being applied mainly to single adults, immediately transported them almost to square one. Now, a gambit to achieve American dreams as illegal workers, for which the eight Guatemalans and one Salvadoran each paid cartel smugglers $11,000 in borrowed money from family and friends ($12,000 for the Salvadoran) was a total loss.
The immigrants felt dejected and ruined by the bankruptcy of an endeavor that succeeded for everyone else they knew: cousins, neighbors, friends, a sister. Short of a second big smuggling fee, most said they’d return to their home countries.
“I go back to my country because I try already and I don’t want to try no more,” said the El Salvadoran, Jose Canas, 23, who had planned to join a brother in San Francisco.
Setting aside their feelings over sunk investments, their Texas captures and quick expulsions provide a rare inside look at a long-haul smuggling industry that is now booming far outside public awareness in West Texas. As CIS has reported from that overlooked area of the southern border, a cartel-controlled conveyor belt greatly expanded after what one of the La Linea cartel’s smugglers described as Joe Biden’s la invitacion to the world’s aspiring immigrants.
Mark Zuckerberg Is Partnering With Former President George W. Bush To Push For Mass Migration And Amnesty Of Illegals
Two organizations owned by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg have partnered with Former President George W. Bush to push for mass migration and amnesty for illegal aliens, policies which favor the political left and Big Tech corporations.
George W. Bush told radio host Hugh Hewitt, during an April 22 interview, that “the Bush Center is spearheading a reform movement” concerning mass migration. The former president added, “And you know, we’re talking to people about, you know, what needs to be done.”
The Zuckerberg-owned organization listed on the George W. Bush Presidential Center’s webpage for immigration policy under “Program Partners” is the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative.
“The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative was founded in 2015 to leverage technology, community-driven solutions and collaboration to help solve some of society’s toughest challenges. Our mission is to build a more inclusive, just, and healthy future for everyone,” says the Initiative’s official website. Part of its “mission” is working with Bush to encourage amnesty for illegal migrants.
