Maria Bartiromo was mid-interview with Border Patrol agents when illegals were stopped and arrested.
The out-of-control border surge continues in front of the cameras at Fox News but other news outlets ignore the criminality of crossing our border illegally. Border Agent Martinez gives one of the key reasons for the continuous mass migration from Central America…Radio Ads!
RADIO ADS SPUR MIGRATION:
During Bartiromo’s time with the Border Patrol, she learned that radio ads are being pushed out to tell illegals to make the trip to the US.
During a ride-along tour of the southern border in El Paso, Texas, Assistant Chief Patrol Jose Martinez told Fox Business’ Maria Bartiromo that “the word is definitely out” among would-be immigrants.
A Honduran woman who was stopped by the Border Patrol spoke about the ads: “The whole world knows, they put it in the news. They tell us everywhere if you come to the United States, they’ll help you.”
U.S. Customs and Border Protection has claimed that radio advertisements in Central America are encouraging a wave of migrants to come to the U.S. for the “American dream.”
“You listen to your radio on the way to work, on your way to the grocery store and that country is advertising, ‘If you want the American dream, we’ll help you out, we’ll teach you how to get in the United States.” – Assistant Chief Patrol Jose Martinez
Watch below and you’ll see just how easy it is to march right into the US.
There were two groups of illegals. One group was young men who had been hiding in the brush. They were arrested. The other group was with small children so they were gathered up by Border Patrol agents to go into detention and try for asylum.
The examples prove what a sham our immigration policy is and what loopholes need to be fixed.
ASYLUM POLICY CHANGES:
President Trump is trying to do what he can to stop the stream of illegals by changing asylum policy:
President Trump is making moves to change the asylum system that is “in crisis” and full of “rampant abuse”.
He has proposed charging asylum-seekers a fee to process their applications:
The memo from President Trump calls on the DHS/DOJ to do the following in 90 days:
–asylum applications are resolved in immigration court within 6 months
–set a fee for asylum applications
–bar those who cross without authorization from employment permits
The word that the US asylum system is broken and will allow anyone in who claims “credible fear” has gotten out to the world. This is why we have become a global magnet for people from Africa, Asia and everywhere else in the world.
President Trump suspects that there is corruption within the asylum system and has directed Homeland Security to “reassign immigration officers” and staff to improve the integrity of the asylum decisions when illegals claim “credible fear”. He also wants to make sure illegals who are ordered to be removed are deported from the US.
Border Agents have made more than 100,000 arrests or denials of entry in March alone
This is a 12-year high.
President Trump is building the wall but the asylum system changes are ultimately up to Congress. Working together with President Trump would help but that hasn’t happened. It’s easy to game the system now but President Trump is trying different things to stop the abuse.
President Trump meets with Democratic leaders today to discuss the issues on immigration. Chances are that it will go as it did the last time they met. It was a Mexican standoff between the leaders and President Trump.
