    Border at ‘Breaking Point’ as More than 76,000 Migrants Cross in a Month


    For the fourth time in five months, the number of migrant families crossing the southwest border has broken records, border enforcement authorities said Tuesday, warning that government facilities are full and agents are overwhelmed.

    More than 76,000 migrants crossed the border without authorization in February, more than double the levels from the same period last year and approaching the largest numbers seen in any February in the last 12 years.

    “The system is well beyond capacity, and remains at the breaking point,” Kevin K. McAleenan, commissioner of Customs and Border Protection, told reporters in announcing the new data.

    Diverted by new restrictions at many of the leading ports of entry, migrant families continue to arrive in ever-larger groups in remote parts of Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. At least 70 such groups of 100 or more people have turned themselves in at Border Patrol stations that typically are staffed by only a handful of agents, often hours away from civilization. By comparison, only 13 such groups arrived in the last fiscal year, and two in the year before.

    More than 90 percent of the new arrivals were from Guatemala, officials said, with a significant change in the dynamics of the migration: While Central American migrants once took weeks to journey through Mexico to the United States, many Guatemalan families are now boarding buses and reaching the southwest border in as little as four to seven days “on a very consistent basis,” Mr. McAleenan said.

    Mr. McAleenan also declared sweeping changes to the agency’s procedures for guaranteeing adequate medical care for migrants — an overhaul brought on by the deaths of two migrant children in the agency’s custody in December. The measures, which include comprehensive health screenings for all migrant children and a new processing center in El Paso that will help provide better shelter and medical care for migrant families, are an attempt to fix years of health care inadequacies that have left many at risk.

    “These solutions are temporary and this situation is not sustainable,” he said. “This is clearly both a border security and a humanitarian crisis.”

    The high number of families crossing the border suggest that President Trump’s policies aimed at deterring asylum seekers are not having their intended effect. Up to 2,000 migrants who traveled in a caravan from Central America last year and faced lengthy delays in Tijuana appeared to have given up their cause as of last month after being discouraged by months of delays at the border. But the families following behind them seem only to have adjusted their routes rather than turn back. Indeed, they are traveling in even larger numbers than before.

    The throngs of new families are also affecting communities on the American side of the border. In El Paso, for example, where most of the families are being processed after submitting their asylum applications, a volunteer network that temporarily houses the migrants after they are released from custody has had to expand to 20 facilities, compared with only three during the same period last year. Migrants are now being housed in churches, a converted nursing home and about 125 hotel rooms that are being paid for with donations.

    “We had never seen these kinds of numbers,” said Ruben Garcia, the director of the organization, called Annunciation House. He said that during one week in February, immigration authorities had released more than 3,600 migrants to his organization, the highest number in any single week since the group’s founding in 1978.

    For the most part, Mr. Garcia said that his staff and volunteer workers had been able to keep up with the surge, often making frantic calls to churches to request access to more space for housing families on short notice. But sometimes their best efforts were upended, he said, including on one day last week, when the authorities dropped off 150 more migrants than originally planned.

    “We just didn’t have the space,” Mr. Garcia said.

    Border Patrol officials said that the biggest “pull factors” encouraging migrant families to make their way to the United States were federal laws and court settlements that prohibit the authorities from deporting Central Americans without lengthy processing, and from detaining migrant families for more than 20 days, after which they must be released into the country while they await immigration court proceedings. Others at the agency pointed to severe poverty and food insecurity in the Western highlands of Guatemala, where many of the families are from, as a primary motivation.

    As of March 3, 237,327 migrants had been apprehended along the southwest border since the fiscal year began in October, a 97 percent increase from the previous year, according to government figures.

    The larger numbers and the surge into more remote areas of the border have drawn new attention to longstanding problems with medical services provided by Customs and Border Protection. Migrant families, in particular, tend to arrive in urgent need of medical attention, the agency said, which has strained resources and drawn agents away from their law enforcement duties.

    Last year, the agency referred 12,000 border crossers to emergency rooms for care, each one requiring an agent to wait with them at the hospital and ensure they were immediately returned to federal custody upon release. The rates of hospital referrals are increasing, the agency said, with about 145 agents per day currently acting as hospital escorts. Meanwhile, cocaine seizures for the current fiscal year have already exceeded the previous one, and methamphetamine seizures have also increased, according to the agency, a situation that also is demanding staff resources.

    Historically, many migrant families have been released from custody almost immediately upon crossing the border because the capacity of facilities outfitted to house parents with children is much smaller than the number of people traveling as families. Immigration authorities have enough space to detain about 3,000 members of migrant families; more than 28,000 crossed the border in January.

    Recently, though, the agency has also begun releasing single adults into the country because of backups that now extend to Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention facilities across the country, where adult detainees are traditionally held until their immigration court cases are resolved.

    More than 50,000 adults are currently detained in ICE custody, the highest number ever, which has in turn begun to tax government lawyers, who are tasked with prosecuting their deportation cases, according to agency officials.

    Yet the latest projections, based on intelligence gathered in Central America as well as patterns from previous years, suggest that the numbers of families traveling to the United States may continue to increase in the coming months.

    Volunteer groups are trying to prepare for even greater numbers, and some of them are having to get creative.

    In downtown Tucson, a 50-room monastery, occupied by Benedictine nuns for 80 years, has been offered up by a local land developer as a temporary shelter to house migrants until July. Newly arrived migrants are checking in at the rate of about 100 a day, replacing families who secure bus tickets to join friends or relatives elsewhere in the country after staying one or two nights.

    “I can’t imagine how we would manage without the monastery,” said Teresa Cavendish, director of operations at Catholic Community Services, which is operating the shelter.

    That's ridiculous. And that's just relevant for the share of immigrants who get processed. The US effectively has no border.

    “Camp of the Saints” Invasion on the US-Mexico Border: 97% Increase as 2,714 Invade Every Day

    The mass non-white invasion of America from Mexico has increased by 97 % over the previous year, with at least 2,714 invaders crossing the border every day—all from the most violent, low IQ countries in Central America. At least 50 require hospitalization every day, at the US taxpayers’ expense.

    A press conference held by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Commissioner Kevin K. McAleenan and United States Border Patrol Chief of Operations Brian Hastings yesterday in Washington D.C. revealed the full extent of the renewed nonwhite invasion of America. Hastings said that that since October 2018, the beginning of the fiscal year, CBP agents have taken 268,000 “deportable aliens” into custody, a 97 % increase over the same time period last fiscal year. “Historically, U.S. Border Patrol have arrested 70 to 90 % Mexican nationals, where we could apply a consequence to that demographic — we could return them quickly to Mexico,” Hastings said.

    “Today, 70 % of all those we are arresting are from the Northern Triangle — Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras.” “Without a consequence, without being able to deliver a consequence to these individuals for illegal crossing our border, the Border Patrol has no reason to expect this trend will decrease,” Hastings said.

    “In fact, we believe it will increase. It is well-known at this time that adults with children will not be detained during the immigration proceedings for illegal entry. Word of mouth and through social media this quickly gets back to those in the Northern Triangle countries that if you bring a child you will be successful.

    “From April 2018 to February 2019, we have had almost 2,400 fraudulent claims of families. Of those fraudulent claims, some are folks who have claimed that they are under 18, and are not; others have actually been fraudulent familial claims.

    “Another trend that we are seeing are the large groups. This is a dangerous trend for us. We define a large group as a group over 100. Those groups so far this fiscal year we have seen 70 groups of over 100. They have totalled over 12,000 apprehensions. “The important thing to note if you look back historically, last year we had 13 of those groups over 100. The year before that 2 groups . . . 99 % of all those individuals are family units, again, are from the northern triangle. “If the current trend continues, Border Patrol can expect to apprehend approximately 174 large groups totalling over 29,000 deportable aliens.

    “The issue and concern with this is that the majority of these groups are entering in places that are very rugged and remote specifically talking about two areas – Ajo, Arizona and Lordsburg, New Mexico. “The issue that causes us, the challenge that causes us is that those are the areas furthest from our central processing center, the furthest areas from medical services, the furthest from our transportation areas.

    “Even more troubling for us is that current intelligence is telling us, and we are seeing first hand, the drug trafficking organizations are utilizing these groups as cover and diversion to divert our agents away the national security border mission, and use them as a diversion to cross drug loads. “We have four specific cases recently that we have seen those family units being used a diversionary tactic. That is highly concerning for us going forward.

    “We are devoting a large amount of our daily resources to this. The facilities and the manpower cannot support the continued increase in the apprehension of family units and unaccompanied children. “Our border Patrol stations were being in 80s and 90s. They were built for a different demographic and not for the current amount of family units and UAC (unaccompanied children) that we are seeing. “Each day, Border patrol is putting approximately 25 to 40 %of our manpower is being dedicated to the care, transportation and the humanitarian mission. They are being pulled from the national security mission to do these things. “We’re committed to addressing this humanitarian need, but the current situation is unsustainable for Border Patrol operations.

    “With this, the increased flow, combined with the stress of the journey, the crowded conveyances, and flu season, has resulted in significant increases in the medical referrals for Border Patrol. “Currently, US Border Patrol is sending an average of 55 people per day for medical care. During December this was a high as 63. We are on track to refer approximately 31,000 individuals for medical treatment this year, as compared to 12,000 last Fiscal year. “Since December 22, 2018, US Border Patrol agents have spent over 57,000 hours at hospital and medical facilities. This equates to just under 5700 shifts of hospital watch in the 72 days, and it cost $2.2 million in Border Patrol salaries. “Between 2014 and 2018, MedPAR data has shown that we have spent $98 million for medical services for individuals in CBP custody,” Hastings concluded. [ MedPar is the Medicare payment system for reimbursing inpatient hospital operating costs.]

    McAleenan told the press conference that his department was “also seeing stark increases in asylum seekers at our ports of entry. “In Fiscal year 2018, we saw a 120 % increase over Fiscal year 2017, with 38,000 claims at our Southwest ports of entry. “So far this Fiscal Year, we have seen a 90 % increase over those record levels . . . fully 60 % of inadmissible persons at our southwest border ports of entry are making claims of fear of return to their home country.“Taken together, these figures are remarkable, 76,000 total apprehensions in the four week month of February.
    “In 28 days, we had 40,385 encounters of family units, and 7250 encounters of unaccompanied children, That means we have apprehended more families in just five months and five days than last year’s record total. “Not only are the numbers increasing, the number of people from the Northern Triangle has increased as well. Now 70 % of all crossings are from these countries . . . November [2018] marked the first time that any other nationality exceeded the number of Mexican nationals apprehended by CBP. Guatemalans and Hondurans are both crossing now in larger numbers than Mexican nationals,” he said.
    El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras consistently rank among the most violent countries in the world.

    El Salvador became the world’s most violent country not at war in 2015, when gang-related violence brought its homicide rate to 103 per hundred thousand.

    Criminal groups in the Northern Triangle include transnational criminal organizations, many of which are associated with Mexican drug-trafficking organizations (DTOs); domestic organized-crime groups; transnational gangs, or maras, such as Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13) and the Eighteenth Street Gang (M-18); and pandillas, or street gangs.

    MS-13 and M-18, the region’s largest gangs, are estimated to have as many as eighty-five thousand members. Both were formed in Los Angeles: M-18 in the 1960s by Mexican “youth,” and MS-13 in the 1980s by Salvadorans who had fled the civil war.

    Their presence in Central America grew in the mid-1990s following large-scale deportations from the United States of illegal aliens with criminal records. The Federal Bureau of Investigation estimates there are ten thousand MS-13 members in the United States.

    El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala are also some of the lowest IQ nations in Central America, all falling into the 74 to 83 IQ category, something which places their populations firmly into the “Borderline deficiency” to “Dull” category of IQ classifications.

    Another version of Chlodovech's post.

    It's an INVASION and it's happening because, it's how the Democrats will have a vice-like grip on power which they intend to NEVER relinquish ever again.

    Look at their IQs and its plain that they are fit for little. But they can VOTE.

    Trump threatens to close US border with Mexico next week

    US President Donald Trump threatened on Friday to close the US border with Mexico next week, or at least large sections of the frontier, if Mexico "doesn't immediately stop all illegal immigration coming into the United States" from the region.

    Trump has repeatedly vowed to close the U.S. border with Mexico in the past. The latest threats came in a series of Twitter posts amid reports that a surge of migrants in El Paso, Texas, threatened to overwhelm border protection officials there.

    "CONGRESS MUST CHANGE OUR WEAK IMMIGRATION LAWS NOW, & Mexico must stop illegals from entering the U.S. through their country and our Southern Border," Trump said.

    "Mexico has for many years made a fortune off of the U.S., far greater than Border Costs. If Mexico doesn’t immediately stop ALL illegal immigration coming into the United States through our Southern Border, I will be CLOSING the Border, or large sections of the Border, next week."

    Democratic and Republican legislators have fought over whether there is a "crisis" at the border, particularly amid Mr Trump's push for a border wall, which he claims will solve immigration problems.

    The president called on Congress to immediately change what he said were weak US immigration laws, which he blamed on Democrats.

    Arrests along the southern border have rocketed in recent months. Border agents are on track to make 100,000 arrests and denials of entry this month, more than half of them families with children.

    To manage the crush, US Customs and Border Protection is reassigning 750 border inspectors from their usual duties at the ports of entry to help Border Patrol keep pace with arrivals in between ports of entry. The head of the agency held a press conference in El Paso, Texas, on Wednesday to say the breaking point had arrived.

    In February, Mr Trump declared a national emergency in a bid to fund his promised wall at the US-Mexico border.
    He threatened to close the border last December unless his wall funds were agreed.

    Trump threatens to close US border with Mexico next week 29 Mar 2019.

    The 'joke' is that 3rd World migrants are accepted and immediately given documents to make them legal. That's why they keep coming in increasing numbers.

    "This Is A System-Wide Collapse" - Texas Border City Overwhelmed By A "Surge" Of Central American Migrants.

    Democrats like to deride President Trump’s warnings about a crisis at the southern border as a “fake emergency” reliant on “nonsensical” numbers about the flow of migrants. They even tried, and failed, to terminate his emergency declaration, which has also triggered a flurry of lawsuits, but that won’t change the fact that the first tranche of money from Trump’s expanded border wall has already been approved by the DoJ.

    And the timing couldn’t have been better, because over the past month, as reports about the number of migrant families declaring asylum between border checkpoints climbing to an all-time high were picked up by the mainstream press, the true weight of the ongoing disaster at the border has suddenly become difficult to ignore. Even the peso, which had mostly shrugged off his prior threats, tumbled when
    Trump warned that he would close the border next week if Mexico doesn’t try to stop illegals from entering the US.

    And in the latest report that, like the others, will be difficult for the public to chalk up to more conservative fear mongering, USA Today published a story on Saturday about a border city that has seen public resources overwhelmed as asylum seekers are released into the city at a rate of more than 800 per day.

    The city is McAllen, Texas, which has seen a surge of migrants crowding church shelters and other resources in the community as ICE has been forced to release more asylum seekers as they await their immigration hearings. ICE shelters have simply become too overcrowded, and the agency, which can hold migrants for up to 20 days, longer than the 72 hours for the border patrol, has few alternatives.

    Under a bridge connecting the U.S. with Mexico, dozens of migrant families cram into a makeshift camp set up by U.S. Customs and Border Protection. The families are there because permanent processing facilities have run out of room.
    Seven hundred miles east, busload after busload of weary, bedraggled migrants crowd into the Catholic Charities Humanitarian Respite Center in McAllen, Texas. Organizers there are used to handling 200 to 300 migrants a day. Lately, the migrants have been arriving at a clip of around 800 a day, overflowing the respite center and straining city resources.

    “It’s staggering,” McAllen City Manager Roy Rodriguez said. “Really, we’ve never seen anything like this before.”

    Along the Texas border with Mexico – from El Paso to Eagle Pass to the Rio Grande Valley – masses of migrants have been crossing the border in unprecedented numbers, overwhelming federal holding facilities and sending local leaders and volunteers scrambling to deal with the relentless waves of people.

    With the border patrol on track to apprehend 100,000 migrants during the month of March – a new monthly record – Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin McAleenan said Wednesday during a speech in El Paso that the border had reached its “breaking point”. He urged Congress to do something – though it seems the Democrat-led House is preoccupied with stymieing Republican efforts to secure more money for border security. “The surge numbers are just overwhelming the system”, McAleenan said.

    Theresa Brown, director of immigration and cross-border policy at the Bipartisan Policy Center, who was a CBP policy adviser under both President Obama and President Bush, put it even more bluntly: “This is a system-wide collapse”.

    When migrants who have made it through the first round of the asylum process arrive in McAllen, they are typically released to the Catholic charities in town, which have also become overwhelmed.

    In McAllen, migrants deemed to have credible asylum cases are released to the Catholic Charities respite center, where they’re allowed to shower, given medical attention and helped with getting a bus or airplane ticket to their final U.S. destination.

    Sister Norma Pimentel, who oversees the shelter, said she received a phone call two weekends ago from a Border Patrol official warning that the numbers were about to skyrocket. The next day, around 800 migrants showed up to the shelter, she said.

    On Wednesday, clusters of migrants crowded the halls of the center. Lines stretched down long halls, as migrants waited to use the shower or pick up diapers. Teams of volunteers called migrants’ relatives to get bus tickets. Every 20 minutes or so, a new tour bus would drive up and deliver another 50 migrants into the shelter.

    As the charity’s respite center started to overflow, the town has gotten involved, opening new shelters and bringing in city buses for transportation. Local officials are applying for federal disaster grants to compensate them for the hundreds and thousands of dollars already drained from city coffers.

    Despite the crush, Pimentel said she will continue taking in the migrants. “If you drop them off on the street, they’re not going to know what to do” she said. “We’re going to have chaos. We’re going to have a terrible problem.”

    As the respite center started to overflow last week, city officials got involved, opening new shelters and contracting buses to take the migrants directly to shelters rather than have them cluster around the bus station downtown.

    Rodriguez, the city manager, said he’s dedicated several city officials to spearhead the problem and the city’s spending thousands of taxpayer dollars a day on the buses and other services.

    He’s lobbied the federal government for reimbursement, but he’s not overly hopeful. In 2014, when a similar crush of Central American migrants strained city resources, local officials applied for $600,000 in federal disaster funds. After years of wrangling, they got just $140,000, he said.

    “This is very similar to what we saw then,” Rodriguez said. “It’s real people and real time and real money.”
    So, Nancy Pelosi, tell us again how the border crisis is a “made up emergency?”

    “This Is A System-Wide Collapse” – Texas Border City Overwhelmed By “Surge” Of Central American Migrants March 31, 2019.

    President Donald Trump claimed on Saturday that he could fix the “stupid” Democrat-inspired immigration laws in less than an hour.

    “It would be so easy to fix our weak and very stupid Democrat inspired immigration laws,” Trump opined. “In less than one hour, and then a vote, the problem would be solved. But the Dems don’t care about the crime, they don’t want any victory for Trump and the Republicans, even if good for USA!”

    Industrial scale Abortion of your own people and replace them with a Mass invasion of third world illegal penniless migrants who for their lifetime require: feeding, housing, welfare, medical care, language classes, etc.

    But they will VOTE DEMOCRAT.

    Everything is interconnected.
