Keeping Fake Illegal Alien Families Together

The circumstances of U.S. Border Patrol agent Rogelio Martinez's death this week remain murkier than the Rio Grande River.
Keeping Fake Illegal Alien Families Together

U.S.A.-( Who remembers the hysterical sound and fury of open borders leftists last summer over President Donald Trump's detention and enforcement policies at our besieged southern border?

Remember the #FamiliesBelongTogether, #WhereAreTheChildren, #AbolishICE and #MeltICE hashtags?

Remember the “Trump Child Abuse,” “Free the Children,” “Save the Children” and “AMERICANS DON'T USE CHILDREN AS PAWNS,” posters wielded at protests across the country?

Remember the 24-hour hunger strikes and Instagram-friendly border photo-ops by actresses and supermodels of the anti-Trump resistance who care, care, care, so much more than you about the suffering of migrant children?

Remember Time magazine's fake news “Crying Girl,” promoted in June 2018 as a global symbol of Trump's heartless “zero tolerance” stance? Two-year-old Yanela Sanchez was never separated from her mother. In fact, she had been dragged across the border unbeknownst to and against the wishes of her father back in Honduras. He obliterated the “all migrants are simply escaping persecution and violence” narrative by revealing that he had a “good job” and the family's life was “fine.” He “never got the chance to say goodbye” to his daughter before his wife paid a coyote $6,000 to bring them to the U.S.

Yanela's mother, who now bides her time awaiting an immigration court hearing in migrant housing in Washington, D.C. (most likely subsidized by you and me), abandoned her husband and three other children for a chance to win in the asylum fraud lottery. She made the decision to tear her own family apart, not Trump.

Here's my question: Where are all the caring resisters and champions of children now that deplorable human renting/recycling scams involving exploited illegal immigrant kids are coming to full light?

These horror stories are the unconscionably perverse and utterly predictable consequence of incentivizing families — real and fake — to abuse our suicidal generosity.

The Arizona Daily Star reported this week that a Guatemalan man, Maynor Velasquez Molina, allegedly paid a family the equivalent of $130 to ‘rent' their 8-year-old son to help him get into the U.S. as a “family.” He and the boy were caught in February. Across Central America, the kiddie catch-and-release regime endorsed by open borders ideologues is advertised as the hottest ticket to gain entry. Aliens caught illegally crossing the Rio Grande Valley have told Border Patrol agents they surrendered with children because they expected permisos (free passes) to be granted.

“Borderwide,” the Daily Star revealed, “federal officials said they had seen about 3,100 fraudulent family claims since April 2018, alongside about 260,000 migrant family members.”

In another outrageous case disclosed this month, Border Patrol agents discovered a “recycled” illegal alien child who had been used by at least three “families” of unrelated adults attempting to get into the U.S. from Mexico. The practice is orchestrated by transnational criminal organizations to increase smuggling profits. One Guatemalan woman in South Carolina recycled children 13 times for payments of $1,500 each.

Border-trespassers and smugglers in turn pay drug cartels a tax — derecho de piso — to gain passage through sections of the border controlled by the criminal rackets. The RAND Corporation estimated revenue from derecho de piso at anywhere between $30 million to $180 million in 2017.

Federal Judge Andrew Hanen of the Southern District of Texas blew the lid off the Obama administration's deplorable role as child smuggling facilitators in a scathing 2013 ruling on the case of U.S. vs. Mirtha Veronica Nava-Martinez. Nava-Martinez, a resident alien, was an admitted human trafficker caught at the border trying to smuggle an El Salvadoran minor into the U.S. using the birth certificate that belonged to one of her daughters. The transaction had been arranged by the minor's illegal immigrant mother living in Virginia. She paid $6,000 up front on an $8,000 fee. After Nava-Martinez and the child were caught, the Department of Homeland Security did not arrest the mother. Instead, DHS “delivered the child to her” in Virginia.

Hanen noted that the Nava-Martinez case was the fourth that had come before his court in which illegal immigrant parents had paid smugglers to bring minor children across the border and the U.S. government had abetted the operations. He called the feds' actions “dangerous” and “unconscionable” for inducing parents to jeopardize their own children's safety by turning the over to strangers engaged in criminal activity with drug cartels and risking their lives in the desert. Indeed, Judge Hanen warned that “the government is not only allowing them to fund the illegal and evil activities of these cartels, but is also inspiring them to do so.”

Trump's efforts to close the myriad loopholes that aid and abet this transnational illegal immigrant kiddie smuggling racket have been condemned as heartless. But what's truly inhumane are the virtue signalers who use and abuse children as pawns in their ruthless, lucrative, sovereignty-sabotaging pursuit of open borders.

    1. Canada Customs and Immigration use a technique to ferret out the pretenders, and have been for at least three decades I know of. HOW IS IT our guys are so stupid as to not use it? It is stupid simple, 95% accurate, and costs almost nothing, taking at most half an hour per group.
      FIrst, separate ALL the members of a “group” posing as a family. Not for long.. remember I said it wil take maybe half an hour.

      They claim to be a family, right? Interview each one individually, preferably the same examiner, one after the next.Ask a standard list of questins to each one

      Your name, name, age, date of birth, of your spouse, all children, parents, siblings. Of the children, also ask the names of each parent’s siblings (tios y tias) City where you lived before you left for the USA. How long lived there. What work was the family involved in? Name church, schools, clubs, any family members are part of. If both parents present, ask date of wedding, and where. WHo were best man/bridesmaids.

      After each is interviewed, they can begin returning to a new common room for the family to one by one be “reunited”. Their “testimony” has already been taken, and can’t be “fixed” after consulting. As they are brought from the interview to rejoin the family, have other agents who speak other languages besides spanish to attempt conversation with them.. if parents claim to be Guatemalan, and the kids speak farsi or somalian, busted…… right there.
      See how easy it is?

      AFTER all the “family members” have had their answers written down, not having been able to consult amongst each other, if their answers are highly co-relative, they are most likely a real family. Strange kids will NOT know the names of Papa’s brothers and sisters. If they guess, and Mama gives different ansers, busted. Bus ticket, back to Mexico. Today.

      If their answers are signficantly correlated, but not exactl matches, detain long enough to get DNA samples, detain them in a camp for the week or two it takes to get the results.

      This plan will eliminate 95% of the frauds, in less time than it takes to “process” them in as tentative asylees. And a definitive answer can be had in well uder an hour, PRIOR to any other processing.

      The guys doing this at the border are government dweebs. dependent upon being “needed” for their livelihood. If this were managed by a for profit coropration, you can bet they’d implement a system such as I have outlined… near instant results in 95% of all cases presenting.

      I learned about this Canadian system of divide, interview, compare, myself as a friend and I tried to fool Canada Customs. He had hamburger for dinner last night, I had pizza, he stayed in a motel, I stayed in a campground. We OBVIOUSLY had not spent the past 36 hours together….. busted. I ended up paying the duties on the signficant item I was importing, which would have been exempt had we been out of the country more than 24 hours. Which we had not been, and the CBP service guys smelled the conspiracy. Took them all of then minutes to prove the stench was correctly identified. They COULD have tossed us both into the Crowbar Hotel, and seized both the cars we had. The showed great mercy. didn’t have to.

    2. They should be sent to sanctuary cities to wait… oh snap… NIMBY..they don’t want them either. So much for practice what you preach.

    3. Well Mark let me see if I can help you understand.Yes GOP had Congress an the Senate for two years.In Congress you had Mr. Ryan the rino who wouldn’t put things up for vote.In the Senate you need 60 votes to get most things passed, they only had 51 I think. For 8 years they voted to get rid of Obamacare no problems. Trump gets in and they know he will sign it, can’t get the votes. What’s up with that? You have rhinos that don’t want him to make it. You have communist dems that aren’t going to vote for nothing he wants. Hell he could have Jesus Christ himself down for supper an the communist dems an rhinos would have something negative to say about it. As far as the illegals, when they come across get them ship them to gitmo. When you get enough to fill a C-130 load them up,fly them back.Don’t say nothing just do it.One more thing , dems always getting some left wing judge to shut down his executive orders then he is in court. He has been trying,but needs help to get shit done

    4. The news media on TV has reported that on average across the southern boarder, that 3 to 4 thousand. illegals ( they are not migrant workers or political refugees) a day! are coming into the USA asking for asylum. But, several interview on TV said they were lookng for good, high paying jobs! Illegals want and demand your job! With companies like Payless Shoes closing up and laying off 20000, Family Dollar closing up 400 stores, Macys is closing stores and Sears-Kmart is expected to go out of business and lay off tens of thousands, where do these illegals think they will work? We have unemployed homeless veterans living in the streets, but these groups pushing for open boarders could care less about them. On TV, there are groups saying that they will give illegals jobs, a new car and a nice home! Wow, do you think that they would do that for you or me? Hell no! And if you don’t join them and embrace the flow of illegals that you are a no good racist! And if you don’t donate money to them that you are a racist! And if you fly the American flag you are a racist! If you don’t speak Spanish you are a racist! The democrats have people waiting at the boarder giving the illegals Democrat voting cards, free cell phones and pre-paid MasterCard! Also heres another thought, so many of them have kids, lots of kids (many have 10 to 15 per family) that property taxes will be going up to have to pay for all the Spanish speaking teachers that they will have to hire.

    5. Dear Mark R. Think about this while bashing our president. Which president is actually trying to change the boarder and imagration laws, which president actually supports Israel by actions rather than words, which president is pulling back money paid to countrys that hate us, which president is changing NAFTA rather than staying with the status quo and being a swamp rat. Granted, he is not perfect but neither are any of us but if you can get any of the job done, you are doing butter than anyone since President Regan.

      Just saying. Go MAGA.

    6. Deport every illegal without a hearing. If they want back in, they can file for LEGAL immigration.

    7. I am totally disgusted by ALL the government for not protecting our borders. From the communist/democRATS to the passive, cowardly, apathetic GOP and finally Trump himself, as Americans we deserve much better. Trump and his administration announced they will allow 30,000 migrants into this country for low-wage jobs. That is an outright broken promise; another one on the list.
      Last I watched Trump’s talk in Panama City Beach, FL last night I was reminded of all politicians who rouse the audiences with rhetoric and in the end do nothing. His talk was pretty much the same as 6 months ago, bragging about this and that but never tackling the real issues. Promises, promises, promises. Yeah, he’s done some good things for the economy but he and the entire Congress had 2 YEARS to really make the difference but did not. I’m tired of the “oh but it was the RINOS, corrupt judges…blah, blah, blah….
      He has just as much “Executive Powers” the former PIMP in the WH had and he got all them through…where was the outrage by the GOP back then? They are cowards or part of the pack made with the communists.

      1. You forgot to mention that nearly EVERY TIME he tries to fix something, some renegade two bit Federal “judge” takes up a case over whcih the US COnstitution specifically DENIES him authority, and “rules” against Trump and what he’s trying to do. Doubt me? Take out your copy of the US Constititon *you DO have one ,don’t you? If not SHAME ON YOU, get one and READ it) turn to Art 111 Sec 2 Par 2 and read what it says there.
        WIth corrupt courts tying his hands at every step of the way, its a wonder he’s done as much as he has.

        WHEN will DOJ begin charging such corrupt politician/judges with felony perjury for swearing their oath of office then failing to abide by it? Once convicted, that’s no guns, no vote, no more lawyering, no more holding public office. That would fit thse barstids just about right.

        1. Brother “T”, we are now in an “Age of Lawlessness”. This is an “End Time” trait that will exist in the later days per the Holy Bible.
