Illegal Aliens Have Their Own Transportation System

From a pleased as punch Associated Press:

In deep South Texas, a daily tide of poor migrant

By CHRISTOPHER SHERMAN | July 7, 2014

MISSION, Texas (AP) — The influx of migrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border has grown so large that it now requires its own transportation system: government buses that spend each night idling on a Texas roadside, awaiting the latest arrivals.

A couple of questions arise. Why don’t these buses just drop the illegal aliens back on the other side of the border? Or, better yet, several hundred miles away?

The buses, joined by a fleet of Border Patrol vans, illustrate the immense and grindingly routine task facing Border Patrol agents in the 5-mile slice of deep South Texas that has become the epicenter of the recent surge in illegal immigration…

The real purpose of stories like this from the AP is to get us used to the idea of paying to have thousands of illegal aliens transported into the heartland. To get us used to an ‘open borders’ America.

Most of the immigrants hail from Central America, and many come with children. They often turn themselves over to authorities immediately after crossing the river, following the advice of smugglers, friends and relatives, who tell them they will eventually be released and allowed to continue to their destination…

That’s not quite accurate. The illegal aliens will be transported to their destination, courtesy of the US taxpayers.

Children arriving without their parents are transferred to custody of the Health and Human Services Department, which tries to reunite them with family members in the U.S…

Or, rather, people who claim to be family.

Both groups have often been allowed to remain in the U.S. while their immigration cases move forward, a process that can sometimes take years.

And by "often" the AP means more than 98% of the time.

Migrants’ willingness to surrender to authorities has created a system in which smugglers need only to get their human cargo to the American side of the river, rather than guiding them to a populated area.

Give credit where credit is due. Obama has created this system. It’s the ultimate Get Out The Vote drive.

Just since October, the Border Patrol’s Rio Grande Valley sector has made more than 194,000 arrests, nearly triple that of any other sector…

In the first week of June alone, agents in this area south of Mission arrested more than 2,800 people, most from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador, making it the highest-volume arrest zone on the entire U.S. border. More than 60 percent were children…

And by ‘arrests’ the AP means ICE will take over the transportation of the illegal aliens. But if 194,000 have been collected just in this one tiny sector, we can be sure that the 300,000 number of illegals in recent months is way low.

The district’s president and general manager, Othal Brand, farmed the area for 25 years with his father. There was illegal activity then, too, and it seems likely to continue unless the Border Patrol stations agents every few hundred feet along the river, he said.

"It’s like a bad neighborhood," Brand said. "You get acclimated. You don’t like it, but you understand it.""

Which is what the AP and Obama want for us, too. They want us to get used to this. To understand it. They want this to be the new normal.

    “Why don’t these buses just drop the illegal aliens back on the other side of the border? Or, better yet, several hundred miles away?”

    How about a crowd sourced funding plan to pay for the gas to take those buses all the way back to Honduras.

    gee, I remember only a few years ago when the libs were telling us it would be impossible to transport all the illegal aliens in the country TO the border. not enough money, not enough buses, not enough personnel, etc.

    love the way the libs keep crying that the immigration policy is broken. uh, ‘scuse me folks, the machine isn’t broken. it works very well actually. but you need to push the “on” button.
