The situation at the border is far worse than we ever could have imagined.
Rio Grande Valley (RGV) Sector Chief Patrol Agent Rodolfo Karisch got everyone’s attention, stating, “But the fact is that RGV is receiving caravan-equivalent numbers every seven days.”
It Gets Much Worse
We have heard the record-breaking numbers, but the numbers Karisch is describing are astonishing.
Not only that, but the Chief also revealed the problem is not just coming from Central American migrants.
Karisch stated, “People are traveling across hemispheres to attempt to illegally enter the U.S., using the same pathways as the Central Americans.”
He went on to say they are seeing illegals from countries such as Bangladesh, China, Egypt, Romania, and Turkey.
Things have gotten so bad this year that we have already eclipsed the number of apprehensions for the entirety of 2018.
In February, the Chief stated they captured 76,000 migrants and expect the final numbers for March to be in excess of 100,000.
In the RGV sector alone, they are capturing roughly 1,000 illegals every day right now.
Reality Vs. Political Fantasy
The problem, as we know, is Democrats do not want to admit the problem because it would spoil their narrative against President Trump.
While those in office won’t admit it, two former Obama officials, Jeh Johnson (DHS) and Mark Morgan, who was Border Patrol Chief, have gone on record to say there is definitely a crisis at the southern border right now.
Karisch agreed with both of them, stating that during his 30 years with the agency, “I have never witnessed the conditions we are currently facing on the southwest border.”
President Trump has obviously been very frustrated with the issue, creating a massive shakeup in the Department of Homeland Security.
While Secretary Nielsen did a decent enough job, Trump did not think she was hard enough on policy and fired her earlier this week.
Trump has also pulled his original nomination of Ron Vitello to head ICE, looking to move “in a tougher direction.”
Come hell or high water, Trump is going to address this issue and get it fixed, it is just a question of Congress getting onboard or continuing to lie to the American people about a “manufactured crisis.”
