Credible fear of persecution by drug cartels, they say!
Whether it’s Italy, Malta, Greece, Germany, Australia, Israel, the US, every illegal alien in the world has caught on to the magic words—-I want asylum. Worldwide, that word is in vogue! And, it’s no surprise the aliens are being taught the proper terminology.
Hundreds swamped a US border crossing with Mexico this week saying they wanted protection from the drug cartels in Mexico. I don’t think most will be granted asylum in the end, but at the moment they have their feet in the door and that is all that matters as the Congress moves along (albeit at a snail’s pace) to get the Gang of Eight’s (Obama’s!) amnesty passed and signed into law.
SAN DIEGO –
A loophole is allowing hundreds of immigrants across the Mexico border in to the United States.
Immigrants are being taught to use “key words and phrases” to be allowed to enter and stay in the country.
Just this past Monday, Border Patrol agents say about 200 people came through the Otay Crossing claiming a quote: “credible fear” of the drug cartels.
So many were doing this that they had to close down the processing center and move the overflow by vans to another station.
“They are being told if they come across the border, when they come up to the border and they say certain words, they will be allowed into the country,” said a person who did not want to be identified on camera. “We are being overwhelmed.”
Pete Nunez, former U.S. Attorney and immigration expert says, “This will swamp the system.”
Here is the part of the story I found most informative. They are being released into the community:
“To make our system even more ridiculous than it has been in the past,” he adds. “There are no detention facilities for families, so the family would have to be split up. We don’t want to split families up, so we end up releasing people out into the community on bond, on bail.”
Nunez says, “It’s a huge loophole.”
“There has to be a policy change, something implemented, an emergency implementation that will stop this, or otherwise we will have thousands coming in.”
We have an entire category entitled ‘asylum seekers’ with over 400 posts archived there. You need only scroll back through the last few days or weeks to see a trend!
BTW, once granted asylum, the new legal “refugees” will get all of the welfare benefits that are available to refugees the US selected abroad. See our updated fact sheet here for an outline of the whole program.
