The border crisis is getting worse. Much worse.
Hours after President Trump issued an executive memorandum demanding tougher rules for migrants applying for asylum, border patrol apprehended the largest group of illegal aliens the law enforcement agency has ever brought in at once.
While the largest group was being rounded up near Sunland Park, NM, a second group of around 230 illegal aliens were captured near Antelope Wells, NM.
Democrats MUST be made to understand and appreciate the situation at the border. There’s no place to put these people, so most are going to be released to the interior to do whatever they think is necessary to survive. That means more crime, more strain on our social services, fewer opportunities for legal immigrants, and a path widening for America to become a third world country.
It’s not racist to want migrants to go through the proper channels and to abide by our laws for entry. By crossing illegally, the vast majority of them have started their “American experience” by dropping a huge turd on our nation’s laws and defying our sovereignty.
Is there a humanitarian crisis as well? Absolutely. It needs to be dealt with compassionately. But that doesn’t mean taking in everyone who sneaks across the border and giving them free rein to roam the land as they please. There are laws. There are processes. These people are bypassing both and spreading our border patrol way too thin. By doing so, it’s making it easier for criminals, smugglers, and terrorists to breach our borders undetected.
“This is an ongoing situation that U.S Border Patrol agents are facing in southern New Mexico: hundreds of parents and children being encountered by agents after having faced a dangerous journey in the hands of unscrupulous smugglers.” – CBP
There is an emergency, crisis, disaster… whatever colorful negative word you want to use about the southern border, it fits. We’re beyond the point of debate. It’s time for immediate, decisive, and unambiguous action.
