Trump’s Tariff Slap on Mexico has woken them up, and with additional funds from Washington they are beginning to intercept the third world caravan.
Even better, Mexico has agreed to accept invaders turned back who already managed to get inside.
The key point is Mexico is the first safe nation for Asylum seekers from El Salvador, NOT THE USA. So NONE of them qualify for asylum. But they throw away their IDs and lie about where they are from. So it’s tough business to sort it all out. It can only be sorted by the Mexicans which is why the Tariff slap (which hopefully will never happen) was needed. Along with more dollars from the US to manage these scoundrels.
Trust me, once the fist caravan is sent home packing, no more will come. It’s all just a battle of wills.
U.S. Border Patrol agents have apprehended more than 150 African immigrants attempting unauthorized crossings into Texas at the U.S. southern border within the past week, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).
On Saturday, agents arrested a group of 37 undocumented immigrants from Central Africa who had crossed the winding Rio Grande onto U.S. soil, the CBP said in a news release Tuesday. The agency said the immigrants consisted of family groups, including small children, from the Democratic Republic of the Congo and the Republic of Congo.
Last Thursday evening, agents picked up a group of 116 African immigrants crossing the river in the Del Rio sector, the CBP said in a May 31 news release.
Video footage shared by the CBP shows men and women wading through hip-deep water, many of them carrying young children and possessions. The news release said the immigrants — including nationals from Angola, Cameroon and Congo — comprised the first large group of African people apprehended at the Southwest border this year.
Theirs also was the first large group of individuals caught in the Del Rio sector, the agency said. The Del Rio-Acuña port of entry lies almost 260 kilometres (160 miles) west of the Texas city of San Antonio.
“This large group from Africa further demonstrates the complexity and severity of the border security and humanitarian crisis at our Southwest border,” according to the sector’s chief, Raul Ortiz.
