Law Enforcers And Border Patrol Agents Have Been Fighting Human Smugglers On A Daily Basis

The troubles caused by our deepening border crisis are growing at a tremendous pace and our law enforcers already have their hands full recently. Human smuggling is at an all-time high as criminals from Latin America brazenly take advantage of the Biden administration’s weakness and lack of resolve.  

“We’ve always had dealings with [human smugglers and migrants], that is nothing new. It changed in late January and early February. Then, in June and July, we started seeing a drastic increase,” Refugio County Sheriff Raul “Pinky” Gonzales stated in an interview.

“Now, it’s just like an everyday encounter. Every day, we deal with either apprehensions or chases from these smugglers and their smuggled migrants,” Gonzales continued.

Refugio County is about 200 miles away from the border with Mexico and it is being used as one of the major pathways for human smugglers. 

Gonzales explains his county’s difficulties in handling the overflowing number of illegal aliens crossing into American soil. The task was so immense that they had to rely on neighboring states and other groups for reinforcements.

“It’s not just my officers. When we engage in a pursuit, we’ll have other officers from local and state law enforcement agencies respond to assist. Those include local police departments, DPS troopers, and even Border Patrol agents,” Gonzales said,

Apprehending illegal immigrants is a very arduous job but that is only the tip of the iceberg. Regularly accommodating such a huge number of people is impossible, especially during this pandemic wherein other facilities cannot accept more detainees anymore.

“We just don’t have the space for them in our jail. We only have 60 beds in my jail and sometimes those beds are full with other criminals besides the illegal immigrants,” Gonzales said.

“And now, with COVID going on, there are a lot of other jails that aren’t accepting anyone. Just like me, I am not accepting prisoners from any other jail — unless they are desperate and need a place for a person in my jail,” Gonzales added.

Some Americans fear that anarchy and chaos will rule in some American towns down south and that is actually already happening. Last week, Border Patrol agents in Laredo, Texas, along with other law enforcement agencies, were involved in a car chase with human smugglers. The pursuit ended with the smugglers figuring in a fiery crash.
