Brownsville, TX: More OTMs coming across our borders seeking asylum

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 6, 2013

This is a very informative little bit of news from Texas.  We have been told that Middle Easterners, Africans and Asians (Other than Mexicans) are coming across our southern border (probably northern too, we just don’t hear it so often), but this director of a shelter for illegals* in Texas confirms that is what he is seeing.

And, here is the really informative part—-immigration lawyers are apparently ready and waiting to process them as asylum seekers.    I have speculated that not only do these migrants get help once they cross the border, but I’ll bet a buck some in the open borders movement are advising their journey’s across the globe and prepping them to tell their stories of “persecution.”  See my speculation and call for a Congressional investigation here (LOL!  Two years ago this week! You can see how they listen to me!)

Check it out!  Here is the whole short news report (KRGV 5), but be sure to watch the accompanying video.  (Hat tip: Robin)

BROWNSVILLE – The Ozanam Center in Brownsville is experiencing a spike in the number of immigrants from countries other than Mexico, center officials said.

Many of those immigrants are seeking political asylum, Ozanam Center Inc. Director Victor Maldonado said.

Tauhidul Mazumder is one of those immigrants. He arrived in the Rio Grande Valley from Sri Lanka. He was smuggled into the United States trough Reynosa.

“I paid them $2,000 and we crossed the border. I don’t know how I crossed the border. We were in a car and the next time we were in McAllen,” Mazumder said.

Once in the United States, he filed for political asylum. He said he was threatened in his homeland and fears he will be killed if he is sent back.  [Could he be a Tamil Tiger?  That would explain persecution in Sri Lanka!–ed]

“I talked to a lawyer and they got me here,” he said

Mazumder said the lawyer told him the Ozanam Center could give him refuge free of charge for a month.

Maldonado said he has seen an increase in immigrants like Mazumder.

“The shelter has always taken individuals from everywhere in the world, but we have seen that trend from that part of the world. Now we are seeing more and more,” Maldonado said.

Immigration attorneys are sending the foreigners to the center, Maldonado said.

“Many of the individuals that are coming here are educated. They do know English, limited English, but we are able to communicate. We try to assist them and help them if we can with an attorney or someone who can help them,” Maldonado said.

He has money for the smuggler, he is educated and speaks English, is headed for NYC (mentioned in the video clip)….sounds like a legitimate refugee doesn’t he?  NOT!

By the way, we have other posts on Brownsville, here is one where a Somali smuggler was caught there a few years ago.

* Don’t you wonder who is paying for this shelter for illegals???

  1. Every conceivable method has and is being used to sabotage our Comstitution and the welfare of American citizens by circumventing the law, law enforcement and the will and well-being of the people with regard to the illegal tens of millions who have stolen into our country over the last few years, and the 4-5 million who are annually encouraged and emboldened by criminally culpable anti-American Americans, including the Presidential Cartel, his czars and his globalist enablers.

    A thorough government investigation, (which will never happen), would reveal unbelievable amounts of our tax dollars, (printed with red-ink) being spent on the illegall and legal infrastructure that obscenly enriches itself on the underserviced backs of the poor, needy and helpless American citizens that are shortchanged their due by the amount that subsidizes the moral and financial fraud committed by the immigration infrastructure in the name of compassion for the world’s, “poor, needy and helpless”.

    I believe that the total would easily exceed 500 Billion disgorged from our own empty pockets each year! That is why it is imperative that we seal our borders, declare a moratorium, (for a period necessary to right this out-of-control ship and reset our course), on all legal immigration, visa issuance, birthright citizenship, refugee resettlement, asylum seekers, boat people, etc.

    The Texas experience alone should give us all of the evidence we need to do whatever necessary to show the badly needed compassion, respect and humanity for our own people, those who shoulder the burden for the sins committed by our self-serving and greedy government.

    Right now, those coming here may not all have criminal intent on their minds, but THEY HAVE NO SKIN IN OUR GAME and they must delay their ill-gotten and wrong-headed journey UNTIL WE CAN SORT OUT THE GOOD FROM THE BAD!

    And while they are waiting at home, they might work on “manning up” and start solving the corruption in their home countries that caused them, their families, their friends to use us as a safety valve.
