The massive numbers of illegal immigrants flooding northward to the United States has been making the headlines in Mexico for weeks, and has been declared a serious health risk – to Mexico.
Judicial Watch reported that high-level Homeland Security officials said thousands of Haitians, Africans, Russians, Armenians and Guatemalans are being allowed to enter into the United States through the Mexican border, with practically no vetting for security of health risks.
Secretary of State Jeh Johnson has ordered the overwhelmed and understaffed border patrol agents to speed up the process by processing them as refugees with “credible fear.”
The U.S. border agents are working 16-hour shifts and still can’t keep up. A Mexican newspaper stated that over 15,000 Haitians and Africans have crossed through Mexico in the past six months, and over 4,300 are still stranded at the Mexico-California border, waiting to be “processed.”
Mexico’s Secretary of Health, Dr. Jose’ narrow Robles, said the Haitians and Africans waiting at the border “present serious health risks” to Mexico.
The migrants start out in Brazil under a South American agreement that allows “free transit” throughout the continent, reports Judicial Watch.
Ecuador, Costa Rica, Nicaragua and Panama facilitate the process by transferring the concentration of foreigners towards Mexico based on an agreement that Mexico will help them gain entry into the U.S. so they can solicit asylum. Under the plan Mexico gives the immigrants 20-day visas and temporary shelter but the backlog is out of control because the U.S. isn’t processing the migrants fast enough.
This week Mexico’s secretary of the interior, Miguel Angel Osorio Chong, told the country’s largest newspaper that DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson assured him the U.S. would speed up the process of admitting the refugees to “alleviate the crisis on the southern border.”
Judicial Watch’s sources on the border say the overwhelming majority of migrants don’t appear to have been through any hardships. Instead many look in great physical shape, even muscular and fit, well-groomed and a lot of them have large amounts of cash.
“They’re showing up with a few hundred dollars if not a few thousand dollars, new electronics, cell phones, tablets, etc.,” said a Border Patrol official in Arizona. Another border agent told Judicial Watch that many of the Haitians and Africans “know the administration is going to let them in and they come with an attitude of entitlement.”
Federal officials who spoke to Judicial Watch anonymously, for fear of retaliation, said the illegal migrants are camping out in Mexican border towns and going “port shopping” while they’re waiting to be admitted into the U.S.
A federal agent at the San Luis Port of Entry in Arizona said it’s like a “mass crisis, like a third-world country.” A DHS supervisor said Washington D.C. has issued an order to all agents: “No one is allowed to speak to the media.”
One frustrated DHS official in the border region said she has never seen this type of rampant lawlessness throughout a lengthy career with the government. “The elected government officials claim we are against terrorism yet they are not doing anything to actually prevent terrorists from entering the country,” the DHS supervisor said, adding that the public should show up at ports of entry to see firsthand the problems border agents face every day.
In one WikiLeaks email recently released, a quote from a speech Hillary Clinton gave to a Brazilian bank on May 16, 2013 revealed she wants open borders. She stated: “My dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders.”
Jeh Johnson is already making her dream a reality. On October 11, Johnson announced that due to the recent hurricane, Haitian immigrants will not be deported.
