A large group of illegal immigrants crossed the New Mexico border where there was no wall. If a group this large is able to cross into the country undetected until THEY were able to find border patrol agents in order to turn themselves in and enter into our broken immigration processing system, what does that say about our border security?
Nearly 250 illegal immigrants arrested in New Mexico after crossing border, seeking medical care, Border Patrol says
Border Agents arrested 247 illegal immigrants, many in need of medical attention, after group members turned themselves in early Wednesday.
According to agents working at the Camp Bounds Forward Operating Base, a large group of migrants crossing the border into New Mexico illegally, turned themselves just after midnight on Wednesday.
There is zero doubt our porous southern border is no challenge at all for smugglers, traffickers, gang members, and terrorists. Leftists often point to the numbers of people on the terror watch list who are caught at our port of entries – six. They say this is proof that terrorists can’t get into the United States undetected.
This argument would be a joke if it weren’t so potentially deadly.
It’s not like this was a small, covert group of ninja-like asylum-seekers maneuvering through difficult terrain and miraculously making it into the country. This was a large mass of people, including many unaccompanied children, who made it into New Mexico undetected. They wanted to get caught.
Those who don’t want to get caught won’t get caught. It’s that simple. The insane absence of a border wall is completely indefensible. If a group of 250 migrants can make it across without detection, how many bad guys are coming over the same way? Build the wall.
