As Border Patrol Agents continue to capture groups of illegals and gang members trying to cross into the US, the smugglers are trying new and different ways to outsmart border agents. This is big business with thousands of dollars being paid to the smugglers to help illegals get into America.
The latest attempt by smugglers is more high-tech than they’ve seen in the past:
EL PASO, Texas Border Patrol Agents were watching the border with an infrared camera at night when one agent saw a small drone moving across the border. The drone moved back and forth across the US/Mexico border several times.
Suddenly, a group of illegals crossed into the U.S. in the same area. The illegals were taken into custody. The drone was being used as a ‘look-out’ in order to help the illegals cross at the El Paso Sector.
The numbers at the El Paso Sector are shocking: The El Paso Sector continues to deal with an unprecedented number of apprehensions, as of March 31st of this fiscal year the sector had a little over 71,000 apprehensions. In comparison to the same time frame last fiscal year when the sector had just under 11,000 apprehensions.
THE REPORT BELOW FROM THE CPB SHOWS JUST HOW CHAOTIC IT IS AT THE BORDEE:
Tuesday began with two large groups shortly before 1 a.m. The first group of over 230 people was encountered at the Antelope Wells Port of Entry in the boot heel of New Mexico at 12:45 a.m. The second was encountered just west of Mount Cristo Rey in Sunland Park, New Mexico, consisting of over 360 people around 12:50 am. The Antelope Wells Port of Entry would encounter a second large group of over 130 subjects right before the end of day at 11:45 p.m. The El Paso Sector had over 1,800 apprehensions in total for the entire day of Tuesday, over half of those being in the El Paso Metropolitan area.
This same Tuesday, El Paso Border Patrol Agents arrested Victor Chavez-Ibarra, a 46-year-old Mexican national. During processing it was revealed that Chavez is a known gang member. After submitting his biometric information through various law enforcement databases agents discovered a criminal history that includes: two felony convictions for illegal re-entry into the United States, conviction for burglary of a vehicle in Houston, and arrests for burglary, possession of cocaine, and felony burglary.
That same day, agents in southern New Mexico apprehended a Salvadoran national who was found to be a member of a dangerous Central American gang. In a separate group of illegal aliens, there was another Salvadoran national who had a felony conviction from 2014 for Contact with a Minor for Sexual Offense.
Both gang members and the convicted sex offender have been booked into local jails and are pending criminal prosecution.
CLOSE THE BORDER! BUILD THE WALL!
