Conservative American political pundit Ann Coulter accused President Trump of allowing illegal imigrants to pour into the country. Coulter said Trump had failed to deliver on his biggest campaign promise.
On Wednesday, Coulter tweeted charts showing new record levels of illegal immigration into the United States, adding that the “surge of illegal aliens under Trump is worse than under any year under Obama”.
The situation is actually far worse than under Obama because the majority of illegal migrants will not be deported as they are from Central America and are able to claim asylum under the bipartisan open borders bill passed signed by President Trump in February this year.
US government officials are struggling with a surge at the border and have already released 168 000 illegal immigrant family members directly into communities, according to a statement released on Wednesday. United Constitutional Patriots’ Jim Benvie has been documenting in massive influx of people daily.
The US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has already released thousands of illegal immigrant family members into the US, and the number is likely to surge as the border situation deteriorates, a top deportation official told Congress on Wednesday. The Conservative Review meanwhile published some of the key findings from the previous months, the April CBP border report:
In total, 109 144 individuals were apprehended at the border – 98 977 between points of entry and 10 167 at points of entry. This is the highest number in 12 years, it is very likely the highest number of unique individuals of all time, given that many in the past were the same individuals deported multiple times within the same week, while almost all of these are first-timers.
The 58 474 individuals in family units set another record, but an increasing number of people are also coming as single adults, 31 606. The overwhelming number of single adults are from Mexico, while most of the family units and unaccompanied teens are from Central America.
The increases over the previous month seemed to be from the Rio Grande Valley (RGV), El Paso, and Yuma sectors, the three busiest corridors in absolute numbers. Overall, for this fiscal year, every sector has seen a massive increase in family units.
Most migrants come from Guatemala, followed by Honduras. In just 19 months, 1,7 percent of Guatemala’s population crossed into the US, on top of the 815 000 Guatemalan nationals who already live there, most of them illegally. A recent poll showed that a third of Guatemalans would like to immigrate to the US.
A total number of 224 078 Hondurans arrived in 2018, which is 2,4 percent of the population, adding to the 623 000 already living in the US.
Salvadorans already in the United States represent around 22 percent of their entire homeland population. Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan said this week that if the trends continue, new records will be set by September.
A pilot program revealed that a staggering 87 percent of released families are skipping their court hearings, leaving judges to order them deported in absentia.
“Family units are not appearing in great numbers,” the acting chief of ICE’s deportation branch told The Washington Times.
The all-time monthly record of illegals entering into the country has been shattered, doubling of the number from just three months earlier.
A court ruling from 2015 ruling that illegal immigrant parents who travel with children must be released within 20 days, has certainly contributed to the rising numbers. “They have received the message loud and clear: Bring a child, you will be released,” said Carla Provost, chief of the Border Patrol.
According to Provost, most migrants admit that they are not fleeing violence but are rather seeking jobs — and they know they should bring children to make it easier to get into the US. Agents have caught 3 500 “fraudulent” families since October 2018.
Agents are detaining some 2 400 families every day, while more than 25 percent of their family claims are fraudulent.
According to Breitbart News, Homeland Security Investigations teams have been deployed to audit family claims in Texas, New Mexico, as well as in Arizona.
“In just a couple of weeks, we’ve interviewed 256 family units and identified 65 fraudulent families. Almost three out of every ten families we’ve interviewed have become fraudulent,” said one ICE agent.
“Within the first week of the operation, we found a little seven-year-old girl from Guatemala, her mother rented her three times in the past year to be brought here to this country so that the adult can be released.”
