The Department of Homeland Security is now openly admitting they’re using taxpayer funds to ship illegal immigrants anywhere in the country they want to go, confirming Infowars reports that federal agencies are standing down from enforcing border security and instead escorting scores of Central American immigrants deeper inside the US.
The AP reports the Obama administration knows it is letting illegals go free, but is refusing to disclose any actual figures:
The Obama administration has released into the U.S. an untold number of immigrant families caught traveling illegally from Central America in recent months — and although the government knows how many it’s released, it won’t say publicly.
The AP goes on to note immigrants, hailing primarily from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, who survived the perilous journey to the U.S. “cannot be immediately repatriated, so the government has been releasing them into the U.S. interior and telling them to report within 15 days to the nearest U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement offices.”
The admission underscores Infowars’ reportage over the past week detailing how federal border agencies have been issued a top-down order to stand down, effectively surrendering control of the U.S. southern border to the overwhelming flood of illegal immigrants. The AP estimates “The figure is widely believed to exceed 40,000 since October. It’s believed to be slightly below the roughly 52,000 children caught traveling illegally from Central America over the same period..”
Last week, Infowars exclusively reported US church groups were aiding the surge of illegal immigrants by providing them temporary shelter, clothing, food and in some cases legal advice.
Shortly thereafter, McAllen Emergency Management Coordinator Kevin Pagan confirmed to Infowars the US Border Patrol was indeed dropping illegal immigrants off at a bus station in McAllen, Texas, complete with vouchers and bus tickets to travel “somewhere in the interior [of the U.S.]” in anticipation of set immigration court hearings.
“They’re not bringing them here, they’re bringing them to our bus terminals because that’s where the Border Patrol understands that they have transportation to go to the interior,” Pagan stated. “So they’re dropping them off and it’s our understanding that they were dropped off with tickets or with vouchers for tickets, but it turns out that some of them tonight didn’t have their tickets or their vouchers for tickets, or like I said their buses are tomorrow, so they have no where to stay.”
The city official’s statements added veracity to a Rio Grande Valley Border Patrol agent whistleblower’s accounts of lax border security. Earlier this month, a border agent contacted Infowars on the condition of anonymity and expressed concerns his agency was being asked to release immigrants in largely-Hispanic populated South Texas towns.
“In the RGV, we have been releasing aliens, through ICE, in Brownsville, Texas and McAllen, Texas,” the agent told Infowars. “We have been ordered to go out of our way to bus them to those locations for release because they are cities of mostly Hispanic heritage, so fewer people will notice or care. We have been doing that for months before the stories broke in Phoenix, Arizona a couple of weeks ago.”
Evidence of DHS collusion in, and premeditation of the catch and release program was further compounded by an Immigration and Customs Enforcement solicitation posted at the FedBizOpps website. A request seeking “Escort Services for Unaccompanied Alien Children” read, “ICE is seeking the services of a responsible vendor that shares the philosophy of treating all UAC [Unaccompanied Alien Children] with dignity and respect, while adhering to standard operating procedures and policies that allow for an effective, efficient, and incident free transport.”
The latest AP report also dovetails with sentiments put forth by ICE union boss Chris Crane at a House Judiciary Committee hearing last year, where he lodged complaints about the lawlessness behind the “nation’s broken immigration system.”
“ICE has essentially prohibited its agents from enforcing” immigration law, Crane stated.
“What message do ICE practices send to the world?” Crane asked. “The message is: ‘We don’t enforce our laws, come on over, and if you do get caught, just lie to us. Lie about the day and year you entered, lie about going to high school, you won’t be required to prove anything.’
“Without investigation, without requiring the alien to provide a diploma or a transcript, the alien will simply be released under DACA [deferred action for childhood arrivals] without first proving he even qualifies for it.”
