The “new normal” should be VERY disturbing to all of America! Why is the United Nations just dumping illegals at a McAllen, Texas bus station? It’s the plan and the word is out in Central America that all you need to do is get to our border and you’re home free! All the American taxpayers should be outraged because we pay for all the very generous freebies they get right away. This is dangerous and this is unsustainable!
AMERICA CANNOT AFFORD THIS!
MCALLEN — The United Nations said there are more Central Americans headed to the Rio Grande Valley.
Central American families that are caught and released by Border Patrol end up at the McAllen bus station. Luis Guerrero started volunteering at Catholic Charities two years ago.
“I’m an ex-firefighter. I always liked to help people,” he said.
The people Guerrero helps are from Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador and other Central American countries.
Guerrero said he’s seen change lately.
“We used to have one bus. Now, sometimes, we have two buses in the afternoon coming in,” he said. “You’re talking about 99 people in the afternoons.”
Jerson Ballrillas, 17, is a new arrival from El Salvador. He said he felt relieved when he crossed the river into the Valley.
The UN said El Salvador and Honduras have had an increase in violence and insecurity.
Ballrillas said before he left, he wore a new pair of shoes to school. Gang members told him to take them off.
“They told me I couldn’t wear those shoes because it looked like theirs,” Ballrillas said.
Guerrero keeps hearing the same stories over and over. People tell him criminals want to use their children for prostitution or to sell drugs.
“We’re going to be busy for a while,” he said.
Guerrero thinks the situation at the McAllen bus station may be the new normal.
