Border Patrol Updates For The Month Of September

Published

on

This previous week, more than 2,000 immigrants, mostly of Haitian and Venezuelan nationals, crossed the Rio Grande in Texas. The torrent of people this massive has put so much strain on our Border Patrol as they struggle to control the surge of migrants attempting to cross into American territory. 

Due to the limited capacity of our detention facilities down south, hundreds of migrants are currently stranded at the edge of the river, waiting to be processed and transported. The Biden administration has clearly created another logistical nightmare similar to the recent one in Afghanistan.

Mexico also struggled to hold off migrants coming from Cuba, Haiti and Venezuela, countries that have been experiencing nationwide turmoil. According to a source from the CBP, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas’ announcement of  the eligibility of Haitians for Temporary Protected Status created the sudden spike in migrants seeking sanctuary in the United States.

“Haiti is currently experiencing serious security concerns, social unrest, an increase in human rights abuses, crippling poverty, and lack of basic resources, which are exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. After careful consideration, we determined that we must do what we can to support Haitian nationals in the United States until conditions in Haiti improve so they may safely return home,” Mayorkas stated.

While America sympathizes and understands the plight of these people, our security and safety should be our number one concern. We have serious problems of our own here at home and we will face a lot of difficulties if we try sheltering them. 

We should control the influx of foreigners venturing into our land as we have learned in the past that violent criminal gangs from Latin America can easily creep into our society. In a perfect world, only honest, hard working migrants should come to the United States, but since we live in dangerous times, that is very far from reality.

Recently, human smugglers assaulted a female San Diego Sector Border Patrol who bravely tried to stop the group of criminals from scaling the primary border wall. The courageous woman was hit with a 2×4 board many times by the smugglers, causing facial lacerations and multiple contusions.

“I commend our agents and Mexico law enforcement partners on these arrests and seizures. Assaults against our agents will never be tolerated and as witnessed by this operation, we will always leverage our resources and strong binational partnerships to bring the perpetrators and their criminal associates to justice regardless of where they hide,” San Diego Sector Chief Patrol Agent Aaron Heitk stated.
