Feds find network bringing Syrians illegally across southern border

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 20, 2018

I’ve written many times over the years about how the world (not just Mexicans and Central Americans) is arriving at our southern border to seek asylum (if caught).  I’ve mentioned Somalis and Iraqis on other occasions and now it is Syrians according to a report in the Washington Times (hat tip: Joanne).

You might want to visit a post I wrote in 2011 in which I suggest the illegals know how to use the system and ask for asylum because they were taught the system. I believe there exists a cabal of immigration lawyers working closely with our usual gang of NGOs facilitating the process.

Washington Times:

The Treasury Department slapped sanctions Wednesday on a Syrian man and his criminal syndicate, blaming them for smuggling “hundreds” of illegal immigrants from Syria and Lebanon into Mexico and then helping them to jump the border into the U.S.

I’m not one of those wishing to oust Attorney General Sessions. This is the kind of work I want him to do.  How we handle immigration is more significant for America’s future then if he was embroiled in the Russian meddling non-issue.

Nasif Barakat and his syndicate, which authorities labeled the Barakat Transnational Criminal Organization, charged about $20,000 to complete the smuggling. The money paid for bribes and for fake documents, including false European passports, to help illegal immigrants hide their identities. The fees also covered transportation from Syria through other Middle Eastern countries to South and Central America, the journey north through Mexico, and final help sneaking into the U.S.

[….]

“The day I was sworn in as attorney general, President Trump sent me an Executive Order to dismantle transnational criminal organizations,” said Attorney General Jeff Sessions. “Many of these organizations use human smugglers to bring people across our borders with little regard to their safety or our national sovereignty.”

[….]

The Treasury Department said his network would recruit customers from Syria and Lebanon, send them through either Turkey or the United Arab Emirates, where they would catch flights to Brazil, then make their way north through Venezuela, Colombia and Panama, then up through Central America and Mexico.

That turns out to be a common route for people being smuggled from terrorist-connected countries.

Build the wall!

    I would have to respectfully disagree on Attorney General Magoo. His ridiculous recusal aside, which has left the Trump Administration limping along all these months, I believe Sessions is either a captive of the Swamp or one of its creatures. Basically Sessions has been happy to preside over the endless America-killing Deep State corruption, which means the US is today a Banana Republic even somewhat before it would have become inevitable with current mostly locked in demographics–open borders, mass third-world legal migration, ‘refugee’ racket; lottery visa jihadists, anchor baby infestations, staggering third-world birthrates, to which Whites will never ever catch up. At least within the same nation or without massive deportations.
