The migrants who got away total in numbers over 185,000 in this fiscal year
Breitbart reports that over 185K illegal aliens have been apprehended since 1 October (with a strong uptick during January).
A law enforcement source within Customs and Border Protection says more than 185,000 migrants escaped Border Patrol apprehension so far this fiscal year. On average, more than 30,000 illegal aliens avoided capture in the last 22 days the source said.
Breitbart Texas reported in mid-April, the “got-away” total exceeded more than 155,000 leaving Border Patrol leadership frustrated. Last year, 69,000 illegal migrants managed to avoid apprehension by the Border Patrol. In just over seven months of this fiscal year, which began on October 1, 2020, the number of “got-aways” nearly tripled last year’s totals. Sources report the sharpest increase began in January.
The metric is usually not released by the Department of Homeland Security. It is achieved by counting illegal immigrants who ultimately escape Border Patrol apprehension after being observed by aircraft platforms and camera systems. In addition, Border Patrol agents using traditional sign-cutting techniques identify footprints crossing the border and count those that elude apprehension.
“That’s where it gets tricky,” says one Border Patrol agent who did not wish to be identified. “On a small trail, dozens can walk all over each other’s footprints, so you just do your best. Often, they’ll glue carpet to the soles of their shoes making detection even harder.”
Sources report for these reasons, the “got-away” count is usually lower than reality. How much so is debatable as the latter method of counting is not scientific. The increasing “got-away” numbers come as CBP reports its highest apprehension totals since 2006.
Despite the current administration’s refusal to call the immigration situation on the border a crisis, the recent surges are concerning. The increasing number of unaccompanied migrant children crossing the border has Health and Human Services struggling to find sponsors within the United States.

With right-wing media investigating Biden agencies, “anonymous source” no longer means the left’s “fictional source” used against President Trump
During the first impeachment against President Trump, the Democrats (both inside and outside of the press) levelled charges at President Trump based on the words of some “anonymous whistleblower” (who, in the end, was totally discredited because no one person would stand up in the impeachment hearings and swear to the truth of what had been claimed). Thence, one might wonder if the left’s anonymous whistleblower might really be a fictional whistleblower.
In contrast, the Border Patrol agents who wished anonymous in this article would likely be backed up by the testimony of other agents. Therefore, it is my belief that the right’s anonymous tipster is a real tipster.
San Diego boat capsizes killing 3 and injuring 27 in smuggling operation
Fox News informs us on the deadly human smuggling accident in San Diego that occurred due to Joe Biden’s border disaster.
A boat off the coast of San Diego overturned Sunday morning, killing four people and injuring 24 others — one critically — in what authorities say was a smuggling operation.
The incident happened around 10:15 a.m. off Point Loma near Cabrillo National Monument. Lifeguards, the U.S. Coast Guard and other agencies responded to the scene after reports of an overturned vessel in the surf near the rocky peninsula.
Authorities recovered three bodies in the surf, San Diego Lifeguard Services Lt. Rick Romero said. One person was rescued from a cliff and 22 others managed to make it to shore, he said.
“Once we arrived on scene, the boat had basically been broken apart,” Romero said. “Conditions were pretty rough: 5 to 6 feet of surf, windy, cold.”
Twenty-seven people were transported to hospitals with “varying degrees of injuries,” Homeland Security spokesman Jose Ysea said. Most were able to walk themselves to ambulances.

Will the press tie this to Biden?
Every time there was something that the press could construe as racist during the Trump administration, they brought up Charleston (no matter the fact that President Trump denounced racists).
Because this would not have happened had Biden not created such a surge at the border, the question now is: Will the press hold Biden to the fire as stridently for a crisis he really did create as they did for Trump with a crisis he did not perpetuate?
Governor Abbott says that Joe Biden “abandoned the rule of law” at border, sending Texas costs soaring
Fox News conveys the words of Texas Governor Abbott, who says Joe Biden has “abandoned the rule of law” at the border and sent Texas costs soaring.
President Biden has abandoned the rule of law at the U.S.-Mexico border amid the migrant crisis, sending costs for border security soaring in Texas, Gov. Greg Abbott said Sunday.
Abbott told “Sunday Morning Futures” anchor Maria Bartiromo that the “root cause” of the record number of migrants entering the U.S. is because of the “lack of border security.”
“It shows that President Biden’s approach to this is to abandon the rule of law,” Abbott said of the migrant surge and Biden’s immigration policies.
Securing the border under the Biden administration is proving to be costly for Texas, according to the Republican governor.
“Our state legislature, they allocate about $800 million every two years for the state to pay for this,” Abbott said of securing the border. “This year, because of the extended time that we will have the National Guard on the border, it likely will clearly exceed a billion dollars for the state to have to secure the United States of America.”
Abbott said border security is only one of the many costs to the state, with others being health care, education and law enforcement. These costs will also affect other states where gangs and human traffickers go after crossing the border with migrants, the governor added.
“The first 100 days of the Biden administration, they’ve been great for the cartels, for the gangs, for the human traffickers who have been exploiting the borders,” he said.

The fact that Biden has abandoned the rule of law at the border is reason for Texas (and other states) to consider forming a more perfect union
Although proposals supporting Texit (the Texas exit from the USA) are stalled in the Texas legislature, this is the sort of thing that gives it impetus.
The Arizona Attorney General details how Biden kneecapped ICE
Townhall allows Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich to tell us how Biden crippled ICE.
Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich revealed this week that through his office’s lawsuit against the Department of Homeland Security, documentation given to them through discovery showed Immigration Customs and Enforcement is basically being abolished through new policy measures put forth by the Biden administration.
In a press release sent out on Wednesday, Brnovich said the obtained documents showed due to changes to ICE “book-ins,” also known as arrests, because of policy shifts in who would be arrested and deported from the country means they would be down at least 50 percent.
“What the Biden administration is calling ‘interim guidance’ is really an attempt to undermine and abolish ICE through administrative acts. What the documents we’ve seen thus far reveal is that there have been nearly 8,000 dangerous individuals…released into our communities,” Brnovich said to Townhall.
“Make no mistake about this, this is a shocking disregard for the public safety of every American. It is having a devastating [financial] impact on our country and what the Biden administration is doing, on so many levels, is unconscionable,” he added.
An email from Enrique Lucero, the acting executive associate director for Enforcement and Removal Operations at ICE, sent to other top officials on January 27 talked about the decrease in the number of people who would normally be in ICE custody but will no longer be due to the shift in priorities from the Biden administration:
“ERO ran historical data based on the new DHS memo priorities for enforcement to inform decision makers on potential impacts of the interim guidance. The data also compares what PEP would have looked like for reference. LESA should be able to filter data as needed to show weekly or monthly impacts. Rough estimate is book-ins would be reduced by 50% of historical numbers and the vast majority of book-ins would come from CBP transfers.”
“An attachment to this email also indicated that the policy could result in the release of convicted felons into communities (those convicted of murder, kidnapping, assault, sexual assault, weapons, and other serious charges),” Brnovich’s office stated.

This is dangerous to America
This especially endangers the border states. However, after just one bus ride (or, in some cases, a federally-subsidized airplane ride) it opens the whole nation up to a new crime wave/coronavirus wave.
Think about it next time you pass the airport or bus depot.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott suggests illegal aliens from China “could be espionage”
The Daily Caller quotes Governor Abbott as he suggests that the Chinese illegal aliens who have been caught “could be espionage.”
Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott on Sunday suggested that some of the migrants illegally entering the southern border could be spies from China and Iran.
“Could be espionage,” Abbott said when asked by Fox News host Maria Bartiromo about border migrants allegedly coming from China.
“There again, this shows the danger of the [President Joe] Biden administration not doing anything because we need to debunk if there’s anybody out there who thinks that these are still just people coming from Mexico or Central America coming here to engage in agriculture, something like that, they’re forgetting about the people from China, from Iran, from terrorist-based nations,” Abbott told “Sunday Morning Futures.”
Bartiromo claimed that a border guard had told her that “they apprehended a group from China, and the group from China told them that they paid $50,000 a head — and by the way these were scientists and doctors and engineers from China. You have to ask why the [Chinese Communist Party] is sending these people to the border, obviously they don’t want to be noticed, what are they doing when they get here?”
Abbott also said the Biden administration “is doing nothing to stop” a border crisis that continues to see migrants sneak across the border without necessarily fearing deportation. He said the cost of this crisis includes “the health care cost, the education cost, the law enforcement cost, all these other costs that will be incurred not just by Texas but by all of these other states that the gangs and the human traffickers eventually go to.”
Fox Nation host Lara Logan has claimed that “the [Biden] administration uses taxpayer dollars — your money, my money — every taxpayer in America. When they use their funds to transport these kids all over the country and send them into different markets, different areas first to live in for the cartels, different markets for sex trafficking and other cartel activity.”

If the Chinese that are coming in with the other nationalities are not spies, they may be forced into becoming such.
China has a well-developed tracking system for their population. Therefore, if people come from China to America (legally or illegally), the government will likely know about it.
Even if these people are coming of their own volition to escape the totalitarian regime, if they have friends or family that they care about still in China, they could be forced into a life of spying for the Chinese.
MS-13 and other gangs exploit migrant wave to cross into US
The New York Post draws an explicit illustration of how MS-13 and similar gangs have exploited Joe Biden’s border crisis to get back into America.
Members of MS-13 and other gangs are slipping across the southern border, hidden in the waves of thousands of Mexican and Central American migrants who continue to surge into the US.
Border Patrol officials detained five gang members in the last week near frontier crossings at Laredo, TX., said US Border Patrol Agent Chief Matthew Hudak in a tweet Friday.
“They attempt to evade arrest by exploiting the influx of migrants attempting to enter our country,” Hudak tweeted.
Among those caught was a member of MS-13 and two 18th Street gang members, he said.
Both gangs are extremely violent and have origins among Central American immigrant communities in Los Angeles. MS-13, also known as Mara Salvatrucha, tried to establish an east coast stronghold on Long Island, responsible for dozens of murders in Suffolk County beginning in 2016. After an intense crackdown, Suffolk County authorities said they had practically eradicated the gang in the region two years ago.
Last month, Border Patrol agents in California arrested a 28-year-old man from El Salvador who was “a documented MS-13 gang member,” border agents said. The alleged gang member had been traveling in a group of Salvadoran migrants, according to Border Patrol.

Doesn’t this make you feel warm and gooey?
