At least 521,090 nonwhite invaders seeking to parasite off white America have been arrested by US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents on the US-Mexico border this past year ending September 30, a 25 percent increase on the previous year’s number.
According to figures released by the CBP, the arrests included 16,658 nonwhite invaders who arrived in the country in families last month, some 900 more than August and nearly 12,000 more than September one year ago.
It was the highest month for families on record, reflecting a jump in invaders from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador, all fleeing their self-created disaster zones of violence and poverty.
The surge was reported as Trump called an invader column of at least 7,000 invaders marching through Mexico to the southern US border a national emergency and threatened to close the border completely to halt the invasion.
According to reports, Trump’s aides blamed the failure of Congress to change laws that make it impossible to repatriate border crossers from Central America and instead force the government to arrest and then release them inside the United States.
For the full fiscal year, which ended September 30, a total of 521,090 people without immigration documents were apprehended or blocked at the Mexico border.
That was up by more than 105,000 from the previous year. Out of the total last year, families and “unaccompanied minors” made up about 40 per cent of all those picked up by border officials for trying to sneak into the country.
Speaking under condition of anonymity, a senior administration official called it a border crisis “that is unprecedented in our history.”
The official said laws meant to protect the rights and safety of border crossers are serving as a pull on illegal migrants, allowing them to stay in the United States for years while the US legal system processes their cases.
Simple legal changes — including being able to repatriate Central Americans as is done with Mexican immigrants — will deter many of them from trying, according to the official.
“The cost on society is enormous,” the official said. “We are apprehending these aliens. If we could return them, there would be no crisis.”
Meanwhile, in Texas’ Rio Grande Valley (RGV), where more invaders are arrested crossing illegally than in any other section of the 2,000-mile-long border with Mexico, apprehensions continued to rise in October, said the Border Patrol sector’s Chief Patrol Agent Manuel Padilla.
RGV made over 12,700 arrests in the first three weeks of October, marking a 112 percent increase over the same period of 2017, Padilla said in a phone interview.
Sixty-four percent of those detentions were of family members or unaccompanied children from countries other than Mexico, up from a rate of 51 percent in all of fiscal year 2018, Padilla said. Over 5,400 family units were detained in the first half of October, up 300 percent from the same period of 2017.
“Right now we’re at maximum capacity when it comes to detention, and so is ICE [U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement]. Our detention capacity is just breaking at the seams,” said Padilla, predicting border-wide family apprehensions would rise again in October. “This is not sustainable.”
