It is a known fact on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border that our laws are such that if you come into the United States illegally, with a child at your side, you stand almost no chance of being immediately deported back to Mexico. This policy has given rise to an enormous number of fakers and phonies – migrants who not only have no legitimate claim to asylum in the U.S. but who are traveling with children who are not their own. Unsurprisingly, it has also created a kind of black market desperation in which would-be migrants are actually trying to purchase children so that they can get across the border successfully.
According to the Seattle Times, Tijuana police are “warning migrant mothers to keep their children close by and supervised, after reports of men offering to purchase migrant children in order to cross.” One Honduran woman told the paper: “I can’t go to work because I can’t take my eyes off my boys.” She said men have been offering as much as $350 to buy children at the migrant shelters in Tijuana. “They want to rob our kids so they can cross into the United States,” she said.
On the U.S. side, border officials have been concerned about the rise in fraudulent families for some time.
“US Immigration and Customs Enforcement will begin voluntary DNA testing in cases where officials suspect that adults are fraudulently claiming to be parents of children as they cross the US-Mexico border,” reported the AP back in May. “The decision comes as Homeland Security officials are increasingly concerned about instances of child trafficking as a growing number of Central American families cross the border, straining resources to the breaking point. Border authorities also recently started to increase the biometric data they take from children 13 and younger, including fingerprints, despite privacy concerns and government policy that restricts what can be collected.”
It’s time for Democrats to take seriously the dangerous conditions that have been developing due to our weak immigration laws. This week’s passage of the border crisis bill was a step in the right direction, but you still have Democrats out there making the case for decriminalized illegal immigration and an increase in the number of refugees the U.S. will take. Simultaneously, you have people like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez screaming her lungs out in an attempt to denigrate our border officers and create sympathy for the conditions under which these migrants are detained. Well, something has to give!
The solution, on the Democrat side, is to simply walk away from it all. Let anyone who wants to come here, come here. Let them go wherever they may, and we’ll just look the other way and whistle. Well, that’s no solution at all – that is a blueprint for the destruction of our civilization. It’s intolerable and unacceptable. The American people need to collectively wake up to the problem here and ensure that Democrats are driven out of ALL Washington power next November.
