The negative impact of illegal immigration and the border crisis is being felt by large and small communities, mostly thanks to local liberal policies that invite and support illegal immigration. Cities and towns are feeling the pinch now, but it will get worse as more “migrants” arrive.
For example, in Carrizo Springs, TX, the federal government was planning to turn rental apartments for oil workers into a shelter for “migrants.” Residents have protested the plan because they fear the illnesses and crime the aliens might bring to their small community.
In San Antonio, the city government is searching for French speakers to help about 400 West Africans who are in local shelters. The West Africans are in addition to several thousand “migrants” that are already in the city straining local social services and public safety.
Almost half a million migrants have entered the U.S. since January 2019, and they are creating a problem not only at the border but also in communities in the interior of the country. Uncontrolled immigration has brought crime and social issues to many cities that never dealt with such problems, and it is only going to get worst.
Felix Salgado Macedonia, a leader in the social-democratic political party National Regeneration Movement in Mexico (also known as the MORENA Party) Twitted a threat at President Trump and the United States on Friday, May 31. Salgado was responding to Trump's announcement to place tariffs on Mexican goods coming into the U.S.
Salgado Twitted, "don't even think we're afraid. We Mexicans are in our own land (California, Nevada, Texas, Utah, New Mexico, Arizona, Kansas, Oklahoma, Colorado, and Wyoming). We will recover the land you stole. Long live Andres Manuel Obrador Lopez." A couple of obscenities were included in the message.
This more evidence of the radical anti-America politics that have always existed in Mexico, but that has bubbled into the open with Mexican President Lopez Obrador. The myth of "occupied Mexico" is prevalent among leftist in Mexico and in the U.S. who want to justify open borders and Mexican and Chicano nationalism.
There a report of another child that died while in custody of the U.S. government, and the Democrats and liberal press are having an emotional meltdown blaming President Trump and his immigration policies. The entire border crisis is the fault of Americans excusing and rewarding illegal immigration, and children are the victims.
The 10-year-old girl from El Salvador died on September 29 at the Children’s Hospital of Omaha, but her death was not made known until now. She was sick when she was taken into custody and held at a facility in San Antonio on March 4, 2018, in a “medically fragile” state. She was eventually transferred to Ohama, NE to be close to her, where she died on September 29 at the Children’s Hospital of Omaha.
Just hours after President Trump announced tariffs on Mexican imports because of Mexico’s lack of help in stopping illegal immigration, Jesus Seade, Mexico’s deputy foreign minister for North America said his country would work to enforce its immigration laws. It appears Trump’s threat may have had some effect in getting Mexico’s attention in addressing the border crisis.
Seade stated, “To avoid these flows that go from Central America to the United States in large numbers I think we can make progress with traditional mechanisms and better exercise existing rules.” He declined to give further details of what more Mexico could do to stem immigration, citing the negotiations in Washington.
However, Seade said Mexico is NOT working on a “safe 3rd country” classification where asylum seekers could lodge claims instead coming into the U.S. This safe 3rd country is what is desperately needed to stop waves of as Central Americans claiming asylum.
On Thursday, May 30, Trump said he would introduce the tariffs starting on June 10 at 5% and raise them higher if Mexico did not substantially halt illegal immigration.
Prince George’s County Maryland, a sanctuary county that has boated “protecting” illegal aliens, has admitted it ignored a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainer and released an illegal alien with connection to the Salvadoran gang, MS-13. Joel Ernesto Escobar, age 17, had been accused of attempted murder but convicted of conspiracy to commit robbery in 2018 but released, has been implicated in a gang-related killing in April 2019.
Andrew Cephas with the PG County corrections department said Wednesday, May 22, that they had released Escobar. Cephas retracted his statement from Tuesday when he said that the department transferred custody of the teen to the state, and when he also claimed that the county notifies ICE of impending releases.
On Wednesday he admitted that PG County does NOT notify ICE except for the most severe crimes. However, incredibly, PG County did not consider Escobar’s charged with attempted murder in 2018 severe enough to make him a priority for the county to turn over for deportation.
