ICE: 30% Of Migrant Family Interviews Result In False Claim Findings

Published

on

Migrants are being encouraged to bring children with them when they cross the border illegally, even if they aren’t theirs. According to CBP, Cartels are using the same children over & over again, attaching them to “families” to cross the border.

Breitbart is reporting:

“Acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director Matthew T. Albence told Breitbart News that agents are finding false family claims in three out of 10 migrant families interviewed at the border. The interviews are part of a new ICE program directed at detecting and prosecuting false family claims made by Central American migrants to gain entry into the U.S.

“We have been working these cases from an investigative standpoint for quite a while,” Director Albence told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview on Tuesday. “What we’re doing now that is a little different is surging the additional resources to the ports of entry and Border Patrol stations where these individuals are being arrested and being processed. We’ve got teams in seven different locations who are conducting interviews of people who appear to be fraudulent families or where we have concerns that they are not who they say they are.”

Beginning April 16, ICE officials deployed three teams of HSI special agents to the El Paso Sector to assist U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials in interdiction efforts in Las Cruces, New Mexico, and El Paso, Texa, Breitbart News reported. The agency deployed three additional teams on April 22 to the Rio Grande Valley, Del Rio, Yuma, and El Centro Border Patrol Sectors. Director Albence said a total of 22 teams have now been deployed to seven locations along the border.

“The results have been staggering thus far,” the director stated. “In just a couple of weeks, we’ve interviewed 256 family units and identified 65 fraudulent families. Almost three out of every ten families we’ve interviewed have become fraudulent.”

Albance told Breitbart News they have found more than 100 fraudulent documents and birth certificates used in an attempt to support family claims. “It’s obviously troubling that these children that we see time and time again are being recycled by these criminal organizations,” Albence continued. “They are being brought into this country in terrible conditions. They are being used by some unknown adult in most cases just for the purpose of allowing that adult to be released because they know we can’t hold them. The children are then sent back to their home country and utilized again.”

“Within the first week of the operation, we found a little seven-year-old girl from Guatemala, her mother rented her three times in the past year to be brought here to this country so that the adult can be released.”

Albence told Breitbart News that once the undiscovered fraudulent families are released into the U.S., the child is frequently transported back to their home country either by air travel, or they are illegally crossed back into Mexico where they are bused back to their home country in order to be recycled.

The director said that this problem of Central American migrant families hiring smugglers to bring them to the U.S. can be stopped immediately if Congress would take action. Specifically, he said that Congress must identify the Flores decision and the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act passed in 2008. These two obstacles currently force U.S. officials to release migrant families because they cannot be held long enough to conduct effective asylum claim investigations.

“If they changed the laws to allow us to detain these families as a unit together for a short period of time as we go through the immigration process, this would almost stop,” he said referencing the current migrant family crisis at the border. “It happened before when we set up family detention in 20014-15 the numbers plummeted. The same thing would happen again.”

He explained that because of the broken laws and loopholes created by the system, “This industry of smuggling children and trafficking them has been allowed to flourish.”

“These are extensive criminal organizations,” Albence stated. “They are transnational criminal organizations that have people that work for these organization both in the foreign countries — their working with the cartels in Mexico — and they’ve got people here domestically. They’re all working together to facilitate this scourge of human trafficking.”

Albance said the case of the seven-year-old Guatemalan girl is not that unusual. “We’ve had numerous criminal investigations where we see that these individuals are being recycled,” he continued. “They’re being treated as commodities, they’re not being treated as human beings. These smugglers have no regard for their safety or well being.”

The acting ICE director said that the recycling and abuse of these children is just one of the reasons why they are executing this surge of forensic investigators from Homeland Security Investigations to the border. “Our primary goal is to protect the security of these children,” he said. “We’re trying to tell Congress that there is a humanitarian crisis — young children are being trafficked and abused along the way.”

“All the statistics show that the chances of that child being sexually and/or physically abused is more likely than not during that trip to the United States,” Albence stated. “And then, God what conditions they’ll be in once they come here to this country.”

“We had one case where a man had a child who was not his and was repeatedly raping her, sexually abusing her, and impregnating her,” the director explained. “These are not good people. There’s a lot of criminals that are in the mix of these people who are coming in illegally.”

He said that those who are bringing a child into this country and making a false family claim are committing a criminal violation. “We’re going to go after them,” he stated, “both domestically and internationally.”

In an effort to more quickly determine the instances of false familial claims, federal officials are about to begin a “rapid DNA” testing program in two locations. He said this specific type of DNA testing will return a result in 90 minutes that can identify a parent-child relationship.

Albence said the Rapid DNA testing will being this week. “We hope to have some results next week.”

The director again stressed that Congress is the only body of government that can solve this current problem at the border. “If protecting the health and well-being of these poor innocent victims is not enough to get Congress to do something for a change, I don’t know what is.””

This was the 3rd time the monster entered the U.S. illegally. It’s too easy for these criminal scum to get in! We need to seal up the border, tight!

Via U.S. Customs and Border Protection:

Release Date: August 15, 2019

“TUCSON, Ariz. – U.S. Border Patrol agents near Naco arrested a previously deported sex offender Wednesday.

Tucson Sector Border Patrol agents from the Brian A. Terry Station arrested 37-year-old Carlos Blancas-Rojas for being illegally present in the United States. During processing, agents conducting records checks discovered the Mexican national had been convicted by the state of Washington of Rape of a Child, a felony, in 2008.

Records checks further revealed Blancas-Rojas has an active warrant in Washington and that he has twice been removed from the United States, his second deportation following his felony conviction.

While held in federal custody, Blancas-Rojas awaits prosecution for the illegal re-entry of a previously deported aggravated felon.

All persons apprehended by the Border Patrol undergo criminal history checks using biometrics to ensure illegal aliens with criminal histories are positively identified.”

Large Group Assaults Guard With Rocks On Border, Border Patrol Fires Pepper Balls

Published

* By

This happened right in front of the border wall we just built. While I was documenting the construction of our wall, I spoke with a Border Patrol agent who said he had been “rocked” over 20 times in 11 years, and that most agents have rocks thrown at them at least once during their careers. This attack comes on the heels of four Mexican nationals firing automatic weapons at a Border Patrol marine unit.

The El Paso Times is reporting:

“U.S. Border Patrol agents fired pepper ball shots at swimmers in the Rio Grande during a confrontation Sunday evening on the El Paso-Juárez border.

A Border Patrol spokesman said agents fired the non-lethal rounds after a security guard from the International Boundary and Water Commission was allegedly assaulted by a group throwing rocks.

Juárez families regularly use that portion of the Rio Grande for recreational swimming in summers when the river is flowing with water.

The confrontation occurred as dozens of Mexican families with children were playing in the river across the border near the old Asarco site in El Paso.

A cellphone video showed at least a half-dozen Border Patrol agents on U.S. soil confronting more than a dozen swimmers in the water on the U.S. edge of the river.

The video was shared on the YouTube page of La Polaka, a tabloid news website.”

El Mexicano newspaper reported that a confrontation began when a guard told swimmers not to be crossing the middle of the river to the U.S. side. Swimmers were trying to dive from the U.S. side into the river.

Agents responded to a report by a guard for the International Boundary and Water Commission saying that he had been assaulted, Border Patrol spokesman Agent Ramiro Cordero said.

The six-minute video shows Border Patrol SUVs rushing to the scene and agents standing on land while the swimmers remain in the water. The tall metal border fence is visible a few yards behind the agents.

A Border Patrol statement said that agents encountered a large group throwing rocks and refusing to leave. When the group refused to stop, agents fired pepper balls to disperse them.

El Mexicano reported that the Border Patrol fired “rubber bullets” but the Border Patrol said that agents actually fired pepper balls.

The Border Patrol is equipped with modified paintball guns, named the Pepperball Launching Systems, that shoot balls containing pepper-spray powder.

“When they (projectiles) hit the floor or a person, it opens up and release the power and it irritates you and you leave or stop coming forward,” Cordero said.

It is unknown how many people may have been struck by pepper ball pellets, Cordero said. There were no reported injuries.

The video was filmed from a distance on the Mexico side and it is difficult to see if it filmed agents firing or anyone throwing rocks.

The swimmers dispersed and returned to the Mexican side, which is near the Casa de Adobe museum along the riverbank where Texas, Mexico and New Mexico meet.

The riverbank on that portion of the Rio Grande on the U.S. side is blocked off by tall, metal border fencing but the Mexico side include parkland accessible to the public.”
