A 29-year-old Mexican national was apprehended by border patrol trying to illegally cross over into the United States. The man, known as “La Bestia” or “The Beast,” had been previously convicted and deported for Obstruction or Retaliation.
He is a known member of the Mexican Mafia as well as the 18th Street Gang. Border patrol spotting him crossing the border nine miles west of the Calexico port of entry.
On the surface, this might seem like minor news. But the left continuously screams that there is no reason for a border wall or increased security at the border. Their claims, led in large part by the politically charged rhetoric of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, are that the way to improve border security is to buff up the ports of entry.
Here’s the obvious problem with that. They’re correct in saying most apprehensions of criminals and smugglers happen at the ports of entry. But that’s not evidence of how the dangerous elements of illegal immigration move. It simply means the ones who are crossing the large swaths of unprotected border are harder to apprehend. Yes, a wall will work. Yes, increased resources and manpower for border security will work. Yes, improved technology will work. In conjunction with one another, these solutions will help to not only catch those who try to cross over illegally but will also dissuade many from even trying.
This is logical, yet the narrative is designed to make the President and the Republicans seem like fearmongers. It isn’t fearmongering when the threats are legitimate. At the border, they most certainly are.
“The continued vigilance of our agents led to the apprehension of this criminal. This dangerous man is off our streets and no longer a danger to the members of our community.” – Assistant Chief Patrol Agent David S. Kim
As long as Democrats and leftist media push the narrative that the threats coming across the border illegally are minimal, they’re going to keep crossing. We have to take the threat seriously. The left must stop hiding behind political agendas.
