Border Crisis Continues To Burn While GOP Fiddles

Our friend Katie Pavlich reported in a recent article for Townhall that some 90,000 illegal aliens have come to America since the caravan formed in October.

And despite what CNN’s Jim Acosta and other Leftwing media figures would like Americans to believe, while the situation in Tijuana, Mexico continues to deteriorate as thousands of illegal aliens wait to gain access to the United States, the border crisis is also growing along many other sectors of the border.

Lame DuckMs. Pavlich reports this week in Yuma, Arizona, a number of individuals were caught dropping children over the border fence.

"We have a challenging and still potentially volatile situation in Tijuana. We've got well over 7,000 migrants there. They're well organized and brought to the border by a group and we told they would be able to cross easily into the U.S. to present an asylum claim. That is not the case," U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin McAleenan said in an interview Tuesday morning. "We do see individuals trying to cross illegally in the San Diego sector, we are addressing that activity and then of course you saw the scenes of the family literally dropping children over the fence. That was in the Yuma Sector in Arizona, also interdicted and apprehended by Border Patrol agents."

Fox News reports border patrol agents in the Yuma Sector said they detained 654 people – most reportedly being family units or unaccompanied minors from Guatemala – in just two days last month.

Officials said the groups of illegal immigrants are not believed to be associated with the large caravan of mostly Central American migrants that have prompted the military deployment.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) said Wednesday a group of 55 Central Americans waded across the Colorado River near Yuma and surrendered to agents after walking around vehicle barriers in the area.

CBP said apprehensions in the Yuma Sector are up more than 150 percent compared to the last fiscal year at this time. More than 3,600 people were apprehended in the month of October.

"Since the caravan formed in mid-October, we've seen 90,000 people come to our border. Eighty-five percent of those crossing illegally between ports of entry and all lured by the fact that our legal framework has huge gaps that create the opportunity to stay in the U.S. while awaiting a court hearing even if they don't a lawful permission or protection claim," Commissioner McAleenan said according to Ms. Pavlich’s report. "It's a huge challenge that we need to work with Congress to address...We've got criminal organizations profiting off of vulnerable families, charging $5000-$7000 per person. That's a $2.5 billion business of exploitation and we've got to stop it."

Some border wall construction is being done, such as at San Diego, two miles of wall in Calexico, California and 20 miles of border wall in Santa Teresa, New Mexico, and where it has been completed illegal aliens are not being dropped over the fence.

Trump’s new wall replaces the old one that stretched only 8-to-10-feet-high with metal fencing that was built in the 1990s out of scrap metal and repurposed steel plates. The old rusty border wall has proven to be no match for modern day drug smugglers and human traffickers says Jeroslyn Johnson of

Ms. Johnson reports, the U.S. Border Patrol’s San Diego Sector is reportedly one of the most active in the nation. Last year, more than 26,000 illegal immigrants were arrested in addition to nearly 11,000 pounds of marijuana and 3,000 pounds of cocaine that were seized.

“The construction of this new substantial wall will improve overall border security, the safety and effectiveness of Border Patrol agents, the safety of the public, and will enhance the atmosphere for business and commerce in the area,” Rodney Scott, the Chief Patrol Agent for the San Diego Sector said according to Ms. Horn’s report.

Mitch McConnell has already washed his hands of any responsibility for getting the Wall funded, saying it’s up to Trump “to do a deal with the Democrats,” and telling reporters in Louisville, “I think that’s the path to getting a signature and avoiding a government shutdown.”

President Trump has made it clear that funding and building the wall on our southern border is his most important unfulfilled campaign pledge. And his supporters – that is 80 to 90 percent of Republican voters – expect Congress to act to fulfill that pledge.

We urge CHQ readers and friends to contact their Senators and Representatives today to tell them not to waste the Lame Duck. This is the last opportunity Republicans have to fund the Wall before radical Far-Left Democrats takeover the House and impose gridlock on President Trump’s conservative agenda.

Border security is a necessity!

A few days ago, you'd be surprised at what was in my inbox. A border agent fighting for his life was asking for the help of my little platoon and people in general. Obviously, he knows better than to count on the government. FEMA is broke, a plus for everyone because they were building what amounts to concentration camps in them. Women and children innocent? No, cartels use them to splash around in the water, as if drowning or something. When an agent comes to see if they need help, a few 'fishermen' with hooks about a foot long attack him of her. That was the fate of the agent who wrote to me. The snow has slowed everything down for a few days, stop anything? No. So it's time for America to act or give the country up.
