Acting Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan was shouted down at an immigration conference at Georgetown University on Monday morning, Oct. 7. In another display of intolerance and ill-manners, pro-illegal alien protesters forced McAleenan to leave before he gave his remarks.
The audience was supposed to be composed of immigration advocates, lawyers and scholars, who were (or pretended to be) powerless to stop the disruption. It’s unclear why campus security or the “adults” in the audience were not able to control the protestors.
Democratic presidential candidate Julián Castro went to Matamoros, Mexico, this past week (Oct.4, 2019) to meet with asylum seekers, specifically to meet with people with disabilities or who are LGBTQ. Castro spoke out against the Trump Administration’s “Migration Protection Protocols” or “Remain in Mexico” policy that requires asylum seekers to wait in Mexico until their asylum hearing date.
Castro told the liberal/leftist NBC News, "There are thousands of migrants who are suffering because of Trump's Remain in Mexico policy. They are being kidnapped, extorted, and subjected to violence. I want to speak out particularly for the most vulnerable, migrants with disabilities and migrants who are LGBTQ. This policy has particularly hurt them.” If elected president, Castro said he would use an executive order to end the Trump policy.
Several gunshots were at the Immigration and Customs Enforcement in San Antonio early on Tuesday, Aug. 13. Several windows were broken in the building, but nobody was hurt.
ICE has been under attack for months by Democrats and pro-illegal alien groups for enforcing immigration laws and for “separating” illegal alien families. Most recently, ICE was criticized recently arresting illegal aliens who were working ILLEGALLY at food processing facilities in Mississippi.
The mainstream media continues to misrepresent ICE enforcement in news coverage by calling illegal aliens, “migrants” and pretending their innocence while ignoring their violation of immigration laws. The news media also downplays or ignores stories that don’t fit their pro-open borders agenda.
Violence against ICE and all law enforcement continues to escalate while Democrats encourage and excuse it.
Stephanie Leutert, director of the Mexico Security Initiative at the University of Texas at Austin, wrote for “Beyond the Border,” to provide “an in-depth look at security and migration challenges in Mexico and Central America.” Incredibly (outrageously), her latest article published on Friday, Sept. 27, blames the Border Patrol station in Falfurrias, TX for the many deaths of illegal aliens in Brooks County.
Leutert writes that Brooks County is the deadliest county in Texas for “migrants” trying to enter the United States.” She ignores and conveniently avoids mentioning that they are entering ILLEGALLY.
On Thursday, August 1, Utah Senator Mike Lee told a U.S. Senate Committee that the current asylum laws allow human traffickers to bring children across the border and sell them as sex slaves. I agree with him. The currents laws encourage illegal immigrant “families” to bring children, many of whom are not related, and use them as a “pass” to gain quick access to the interior of the U.S.
Sen. Lee said, "Children are brought to the border by cartels who know the U.S. government will essentially complete the trafficking route for them at the end of the road by releasing the child into the interior, in some cases to sponsors who claim to be relatives but in fact are only the final link in the trafficking chain. The fates of these children are horrible. What they suffer is grotesque."
These children are used by illegal aliens as a “get-in-free-and-quick” pass because they cannot be separated as “families,” and because the adults and their children can’t be held in detention more than 20 days. The “families” are released and given a court date for an asylum hearing, but over 90% of them are never seen again.
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., has proposed legislation that would close the “loophole” in the asylum law and discourage the use and abuse of minors to enter the U.S. illegally.
