Immigration issues in this country are out of control.
President Obama initiated policies that encouraged the mass legalization of immigrants, leaving President Trump unsecured borders and rampant immigration crime with which to deal.
And one big bust just proved how dangerous smuggling illegal aliens into this country can be and proved that our borders must be built.
The Big Bust
Border Patrol agents in Texas arrested a human smuggler who had nearly 80 illegal immigrants locked in his refrigerated tractor trailer.
Laredo Sector Border Patrol agents stopped a refrigerated tractor trailer at a checkpoint.
The driver and passenger immediately refused to comply with law enforcement officials, leaving them suspicious.
That suspicion was confirmed when a K-9 agent alerted them to the possibility of human or drug trafficking in the back.
When officers directed the driver to another secondary checkpoint, the driver refused to comply.
The driver drove away from the checkpoint, and a chase ensued.
The driver eventually stopped a few miles down the road and was arrested.
Officials opened the rear of the trailer once it was stopped, and discovered 78 illegal aliens who the driver allegedly locked inside.
Despite being locked in freezing conditions, the agents on scene determined the immigrants were in good health.
The 78 immigrants were subsequently detained and arrested. A translator was brought in for questioning after they were brought to an immigration facility.
When questioned, it was determined they came to the U.S. from Brazil, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, India, and Mexico.
The migrants will be removed from the states on the charges of immigration violations.
The driver and passenger will be investigated on human smuggling accounts.
The Recurring Problem
The Laredo Sector Chief Patrol Agent claimed this is a recurring problem that must be settled.
“These criminal organizations continue to use tractor trailers and view these individuals as mere commodities without regard for their safety…..The blatant disregard for human life will not be tolerated. We will continue to work with our law enforcement partners to disrupt and dismantle these organizations and prosecute those responsible.”
Trump’s New Plan for the Border Wall
President Trump has a new immigration proposal that will not only help fund the border wall, but one that Democrats may finally be willing to listen to.
Trump wants $25 billion in funding for the border wall, a stricter immigration vetting process, and the removal of previous Obama-era policies.
In return, Trump promised that a portion of Dreamers will be given full legalization status — a compromise to which Democrats may finally yield.
Trump has been fighting for a border wall since he began campaigning in 2015.
Now, that border wall may finally be built — and our borders secured.
Do you believe that Trump’s new plan will lead to the building of a border wall?
Do you think that having the border wall will solve the immigration crisis?
