“90,000 Aliens at our Border since Caravan Formed,” Border Commissioner (Video)

Posted by FactReal on December 4, 2018

The dire situation at our border was underlined today by U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin McAleenan while talking about the latest border breaches in Yuma and Tijuana/U.S.:

That is what we see everyday…Since that caravan formed in mid-October, we have seen 90,000 people come to our border – 85% of those crossing illegally between ports of entry – and all lured by the fact that our legal framework has huge gaps that create the opportunity to stay in the U.S. while awaiting a court hearing even if they don’t have a lawful permission or protection claim. So it is a huge challenge that we need to work with Congress to address.

Smuggler Helping Illegal Aliens over Border Wall in Yuma, AZ – 12/3/2018 (Video)

Posted by FactReal on December 4, 2018


U.S. Customs and Border Protection reported yesterday:

Suspected Human Smuggler Observed Dropping Small Children from Border Wall
Release Date: December 3, 2018

YUMA, Ariz. – Yuma Sector camera operators observed a group of six illegal aliens, including two small children, traversing over the border wall with assistance, near the San Luis Port of Entry early Monday morning.

The children were dropped from the 18-foot wall, which was observed by a Yuma Sector camera operator.

At least one subject in Mexico was visible helping adult members of the family group over the top of the wall. The subject then dropped two young children from the top of the wall to waiting family members below. The subject retreated to Mexico and was not apprehended.

The group of six from Guatemala was a family unit, including three children: a 2-year-old, a 7-year- old, and a 10-year-old. All surrendered to U.S. Border Patrol agents who arrived on scene. One child suffered a facial injury, and was treated by agents. All were taken into custody.

Fox News added:

That section of the wall where the incident took place is part of the 27 miles that has been selected for replacement in 2019[.]

Fox News video:

More than 2K Migrants “Lost” in Tijuana at U.S. Border (Video)

Posted by FactReal on December 4, 2018

Reports indicate that some have crossed to the United States illegally.

“There are about 2,000 people unaccounted for,” told Tijuana delegate Genaro Lopez Moreno to Tucker Carlson yesterday (video mark 2:28):

Some 3,000 migrants “lost” in Tijuana according to today’s report by El Periodico.com:

Rush Translation:

Unknown the whereabouts of thousands of Central American migrants who arrived in Tijuana
Mexican authorities say that some 3,000 people who arrived in the caravans, are as “unaccounted for” in this city bordering the US
Tijuana, Mexico – Tuesday, 12/4/2018

With the arrival of the migrant caravans and the few possibilities they have of entering the United States, the authorities of the city of Tijuana, Mexico, now say they do not know the whereabouts of some 3,000 migrants, while the [new] Mexican president Andrés Manuel López Obrador said that the situation on the border “tends to normalize.”

The closure of the first shelter for health reasons and for migrants to go to a covered shelter, caused a dispersion due to rumors they could be deported.

No precise data
The Secretary of Public Security of Tijuana, Marco Antonio Sotomayor, admitted that “a significant number” of the migrants who arrived in Tijuana since November 11 simply “can not be located.”

He explained that the population of migrants located in shelters does not correspond to the 6,151 that arrived in the past weeks to Tijuana, the Mexican border with California, according to the authorities. Sotomayor noted that migrant differences “may not be very precise, because there was no official census or biometric studies to identify foreigners.”

In the first authorized shelter, in the Benito Juárez sports center, the municipal authorities made daily calculations to be disseminated to the media. The official commented that in “El Barretal”, a spectacle center used as a refuge, there are 2,122 people, and another 744 and 600 are located in streets near the first shelter and 144 moved houses managed by religious groups.

They do not know where they are
Of the rest, just over 3,000, “their whereabouts are unknown”, although some may be in private homes, have crossed illegally to the United States, have been arrested and perhaps agreed to return to their country, he added. About those who remain in the streets said that “they should be relocated to the new shelter, since they can not be kept on the public road,” because if they commit infractions, “they will be detained” by the police.

The migrants chose to stay on the streets, saying that “the second refuge, located about 20 kilometers [~12.4 miles] away, is” far away “from the” El Chaparral “port, where they hope to begin their asylum process in the United States.


Some 9,000 Central Americans, mostly Hondurans, arrived in Mexico from October 19 in different groups, of which more than 7,000 arrived in the cities of Mexicali and Tijuana, in the state of Baja California, to seek asylum in the United States, and some 2,000 are in transit in other areas of the country.

In Spanish, as reported by ElPeriodico.com:

Desconocen el paradero de miles de migrantes centroamericanos que llegaron a Tijuana
Las autoridades mexicanas dicen que unas 3.000 personas que arribaron en las caravanas, están como “no localizables” en esta ciudad fronteriza con los EEUU
El Periódico

Tijuana, México – Martes, 04/12/2018 a las 02:57 CET

Ante la llegada de las caravas migrantes y las pocas posibilidades que tienen de ingresar a los Estados Unidos, ahora las autoridades de la ciudad de Tijuana, México, dijeron que desconocen el paradero de unos 3.000 migrantes, en tanto el presidente mexicano Andrés Manuel López Obrador dijo que la situación en la frontera “tiende a normalizarse”.

El cierre del primer albergue por cuestiones de salubridad para que los migrantes se dirigieran a un refugio techado, provocó una dispersión ante los rumores que posiblemente serían detenidos para ser deportados.

Sin datos precisos
El secretario de Seguridad Pública de Tijuana, Marco Antonio Sotomayor, admitió que “un número importante” de los migrantes que llegaron a Tijuana desde el 11 de noviembre simplemente “no están localizables”.

Explicó que la población de migrantes situada en albergues no corresponde a los 6.151 que según las autoridades, llegaron las últimas semanas a Tijuana, frontera mexicana con California, Estados Unidos. Sotomayor señaló que las diferencias de migrantes “pudieran no ser muy precisas, porque no se hizo un censo oficial, ni estudios biométricos para poder identificar a los extranjeros”.

En el primer albergue habilitado, en la unidad deportiva Benito Juárez, las autoridades municipales hacían cálculos diarios para ser divulgados a los medios informativos. El funcionario comentó que en “El Barretal”, un centro de espectáculos usado como refugio, hay 2.122 personas, y se tienen localizadas a otros 744 y 600 en calles cercanas al primer albergue y 144 que se movieron casas administradas por agrupaciones religiosas.

No saben dónde están
Del resto, poco más de 3.000, “no se conoce su paradero”, aunque algunos pueden estar en domicilios particulares, haber cruzado ilegalmente a Estados Unidos, haber sido detenidos y quizá aceptaron volver a su país, abundó. Sobre los que permanecen en las calles dijo que “deberán ubicarse en el nuevo albergue, ya que no se pueden mantener en la vía pública”, porque si cometen infracciones al bando de la policía y buen gobierno “serán detenidos”.

Los migrantes optaron por las calles al señalar que “queda muy lejos” el segundo refugio, situado a unos 20 kilómetros, de la garita de “El Chaparral”, donde esperan iniciar su trámite de asilo en Estados Unidos.

Unos 9.000 centroamericanos, en su mayoría hondureños, llegaron a México a partir del 19 de octubre en distintos grupos, de los cuales más de 7.000 arribaron a las ciudades de Mexicali y Tijuana, estado de Baja California, para pedir asilo en Estados Unidos, y unos 2.000 están en tránsito en otras zonas del país.

The Open Border Activists Behind the Illegal Immigrant Caravans” – a great report prepared by Hayden Ludwig from Capital Research Center on October 24, 2018:

♦ Pueblo Sin Fronteras: (“People Without Borders”):

[A]t least two activists from Pueblo Sin Fronteras—Denis Omar Contreras and Rodrigo Abeja—are embedded in the caravan, according to the Los Angeles Times, the Washington Post, and the Mexican newspaper La Jornada. […]

On October 18, Irineo Mujica—director of Pueblo Sin Fronteras in Mexico and an American citizen—was arrested by Mexican officials for allegedly attacking immigration officials at a pro-illegal immigration protest near the Guatemala-Mexico border.

And while Pueblo Sin Fronteras organizer Alex Mensing, an American, told reporters that Mujica was not involved in the most recent caravan, Mujica was detained in April for leading a previous caravan into Mexico with the support of Pueblo Sin Fronteras.

♦ La Familia Latina Unida (“The United Latin Family”):

La Familia Latina Unida (“The United Latin Family”), a Chicago, Illinois-based illegal immigration advocacy group formed in 2001 by illegal immigrant and activist Elvira Arellano.

♦ Centro Sin Fronteras (“Center Without Borders”):

[T]he Centro Sin Fronteras (“Center Without Borders”), a 501(c)(3) illegal immigration organizing group headquartered in the Lincoln United Methodist Church in Chicago.

The Center is headed by Emma Lozano and her husband, Walter “Slim” Coleman, who founded the group in 1987 following the murder of Lozano’s brother, left-wing community organizer Rudy Lozano. […]

Lozano is a member of the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) …

Lozano is also an activist for so-called DREAMers…

…Much of its funding from 2000-2005 came from the Public Welfare Foundation, a major left-wing foundation that also funds far-left groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center and Alliance for Global Justice.

March 23, 2018
Tapachula, Mexico

To the governments of Central America, Mexico, and the United States of America,
To the media,
To human rights organizations,
To civil society,

We are a group of people from different nations, religions, genders, gender expressions, and sexual orientations migrating and seeking refuge. We seek to become one collective, supporting each other shoulder to shoulder and demonstrating that by uniting we can abolish borders.

We Central Americans have formed a caravan of many united in struggle. We leave Tapachula, Chiapas on March 25.

If all goes well we will be in Puebla, Mexico from April 5 to 9 to participate in legal preparation and workshops. From there we will hope for the blessing of solidarity from the Mexican people and human rights organizations, who we hope will join our struggle and assist us with the supplies and resources that they have available. We appreciate the support and collaboration of the people of Mexico and the United States. We hope to be an example of solidarity and struggle to the world.

We demand of our Central American countries:
-An end to political corruption
-An end to violence against women and the LGBTQIA community
-An end to failures of justice for victims of domestic violence, extortion, threats, and homophobia
-An end to corruption between gangs, the police, and governments
-An end to murder with impunity and gang recruitment of youth

We demand of Mexico and the United States:
-That they respect our rights as refugees and our right to dignified work to be able to support our families
That they open the borders to us because we are as much citizens as the people of the countries where we are and/or travel
-That deportations, which destroy families, come to an end
-No more abuses against us as migrants
-Dignity and justice
-That the US government not end TPS for those who need it
-That the US government stop massive funding for the Mexican government to detain Central American migrants and refugees and to deport them
-That these governments respect our rights under international law, including the right to free expression
-That the conventions on refugee rights not be empty rhetoric

“The border is stained red!”
“Because there they kill the working class!”
“Why do they kill us? Why do they murder us…”

“If we are the hope of Latin America?”

(Sorry the video is in Spanish, but here is the gist of the interview with reporters in Tijuana, Mexico.)
At 5:10 and 6:20 video marks, Irineo blames Trump for the migrant invasion. He says that Trump with his tweets incited Central Americans to come to the U.S. border.(!!?) The reporter confronts him. Irineo as any typical demagogue dances around and once cornered projects his faults onto others (i.e, Trump) or simply introduces another topic. He says the “caravan” benefited Trump in the elections. In brief, Irineo sounds like any Democrat politician here in the U.S.

Laws Broken by “Caravan” Organizers (Video)

Posted by FactReal on November 30, 2018

These are some of the laws broken by open-borders groups that agitated Central Americans into joining the so-called migrant caravans and are storming the U.S. border illegally.

Laura Ingraham explained on Nov 27, 2018: [Emphasis added]

The new A.G. needs to launch an investigation of open borders groups such Pueblo Sin Fronteras that have organized and choreographed this migrant crisis at the border. These organizations are criminal conspirators. They are masquerading though as non-profits helping the migrants.

Right now, there are laws on the books that a smart leader at DOJ could utilize to stop this caravan madness. What are these laws? One, there is Section 274 of the Immigration and Nationality Act, any person who knowingly brings or just attempts to bring an alien into the United States illegally has omitted a crime punishable by up to 10 years in prison.

Moreover, anyone who encourages or induces an alien to come, to enter or reside in the United States illegally can be jailed up to five years. And someone who aids or abets people committing either of the above acts can also be jailed for five years.

And by the way, it gets better, 18 USC section 1324 even invokes the possibility of the death penalty for those whose actions result in the death of any person while violating the governing immigration laws. Jeff Sessions dropped the ball on this issue. A new A.G. must not.
