(ConservativeSense.com) – All four sectors along the U.S.-Mexico border in Texas are at or nearing the maximum capacity for migrants being held there as a huge surge hits the Rio Grande Valley, consisting mostly of families.
According to a source from U.S. Customs and Border Protection, there are nearly 20,000 migrants currently in the custody of the Border Patrol. Around 3 a.m. on Thursday, a group of hundreds of migrants illegally crossed the border near Fronton. The caravan of migrants consisted primarily of families with children and infants, as well as unaccompanied minors. About an hour later, many more families showed up near Sullivan City.
Fox News reported that many of those who are stopped in the Rio Grande Valley area are being released with a Notice to Appear in court to have their asylum cases heard. Despite scorching temperatures, July saw a spike in illegal border crossings after June’s dip, which was the lowest it’s been for two years.
So-called “sanctuary cities” like New York have also been prioritizing families. In January, some conflict resulted after the city ordered the Watson Hotel in Hell’s Kitchen to be vacated, which sheltered exclusively single male migrants at the time, in order to make room for families. A brief protest ensued, egged on by left-wing activists.
The issue of unaccompanied minors and human trafficking is also becoming a national conversation, especially after the success of the movie “Sound of Freedom.”
Last year, in November, a whistleblower who worked for the Department of Health and Human Services as a volunteer came forward to Project Veritas about unaccompanied minors being relocated to unvetted sponsors across the country, some of whom appeared on transnational organized crime watchlists.
Rodas testified before a House committee a few months ago, urging Congress to do something about the issue, which she describes as “government-sponsored, taxpayer-funded child trafficking.”
