For years during the Trump administration, we heard an incessant conversation on supposed “kids in cages” from Democrat politicians and the mainstream media with even the media referring to the detention centers as Nazi concentration camps for children.
Now we have an actual crisis at the border and it’s crickets from the mainstream media. The Biden administration has barely given the issue any importance, and when he was asked if he would go to the border, he responded that he would eventually make it over there. Obviously the more pressing issue is to create vaccine passports and to control the free movement of US citizens. The movement of illegals into the country apparently is of little consequence to this administration.
Ben Swann, an independent journalist, came out with a report on his platform which noted that 80% of women and girls are sexually abused on their journey to the US-Mexico Border. This is made worse by the fact that the perception in Central America is that the Biden Administration will let them all in, giving a surge to the amount of people willing to make the dangerous journey.
Since the Biden administration took office, 100,000 people are crossing illegally into the US. Analysts say that this number will double in the next few months, and that soon it will be 200,000 people a month. It sounds like an invasion.
With these massive numbers also come tens of thousands of children who are being brought into the US border without any parents or legal guardians. Every single day, nearly 600 children cross the border. Right now, there are over 15 thousand unaccompanied minors held in detention facilities by US customs and border patrol. Because of the surge of migrants caused by the “friendly” attitude to illegal immigration from the Biden administration, these facilities are being overwhelmed and many are running over 700% capacity. Thousands of children and adults are being held here, cramped together, and sleeping on the floor under space blankets.
Jen Psaki says sending children back to their country of origin is not the right choice to make. Making it known to Cartels that they can keep sending people to the border and the US will keep taking them.
Swann covered Cartels many years in the US-Mexico Border, and the notes that getting people to the Border is a big business for these cartels. He says that “the cost to bring people across the border is very high.” Swann reports that to cross the border illegally, a Mexican citizen is charged 2500 dollars by the Cartel, a citizen from a Central American country is charged 3000 to 3500 dollars, and the fee goes up to 9000 dollars if the person is coming from China or the Middle East. This is a fee per person.
With hundreds of thousands of people crossing, now more than ever given their belief they will be well received, more people are willing to pay the price, some even putting their life savings. The Cartels are raking in millions of dollars.
The children are also paying the toll, somehow. DHS estimates that there will be 117 thousand unaccompanied children that will have crossed the border by May this year. Many of them are victimized along the way. Women and girls, especially, are sexually victimized. The majority of them are coming from Central American countries like Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador.
According to a Fusion investigation, 80% of women and girls crossing into the US by way of Mexico, are raped along the journey. This is now up from an estimate made by Amnesty International, which put the number at 60%. Unfortunately, these numbers may not even represent the full picture, as probably a lot of these abuses go unreported.
Rape can be perpetrated by anyone along the way, this includes guides, fellow migrants, criminals along the journey, and even government officials. In fact, this is so common that many girls take contraceptives beforehand as preventative measures. Sometimes sex is used as a form of payment, when the women and girls cannot pay the bribes they encounter along the journey.
It is simply time to have immigration policies which do not incentivize people to travel here illegally. Foreigners now perceive that the general American public will take care of them once they arrive, that they happily want to welcome illegals, which opens up business for cartels and incentivizes bad behavior. Not to mention the weight it will keep putting on the American working class.
