… You can thank Homeland Security for This Idiocy …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,August 11th,2013

.. news such that from these is outrageous .

.. The drug cartels (in Mexico) present a significant security threat . Not just to the Mexican people , but to the people of the United States . it is without doubt that the cartels have contacts with gangs , with the remains of the Mafia , and other groups throughout our country . However , their effect remains muted , at least in our country .

.. Even so , in Mexico , their country has evolved , and has grown . Mexico has not emerged into the First World , but its time is coming . Its economy is becoming far more diverse , and industrial , as well as service and information – based . It is most definitely not an “oil” economy , not anymore . Even their oil sector is beginning to reform itself . Amazing , by Mexican standards , considering how rife with corruption that Petroleonos Mexicanos (or , PEMEX) has been for decades . It has never gotten as rife with violence and drug gang control as Columbia did a generation ago.

.. However , one cannot discout the drug cartel threat . They are ongoing and continuing threat , on both sides of the border . It most definitely does not justify what is happening right now on the border , especially with the immigration debate that is underway .

.. Homeland Security has created a huge new loophole . Either by its actions , or by its lack of action . There is no excuse for it . None , at all . Period . They are acting as if they are waving “ole” at the border , and allowing a new flood of illegals in . Their actions will backfire . Spectacularly .

SAN DIEGO –

A loophole is allowing hundreds of immigrants across the Mexico border in to the United States.
Immigrants are being taught to use “key words and phrases” to be allowed to enter and stay in the country.

Just this past Monday, Border Patrol agents say about 200 people came through the Otay Crossing claiming a quote: “credible fear” of the drug cartels.

So many were doing this that they had to close down the processing center and move the overflow by vans to another station.

“They are being told if they come across the border, when they come up to the border and they say certain words, they  will be allowed into the country,” said a person who did not want to be identified on camera.  “We are being overwhelmed.”

Pete Nunez, former U.S. Attorney and immigration expert says, “This will swamp the system.”
“To make our system even more ridiculous than it has been in the  past,” he adds.  “There are no detention facilities for families, so the family would have to be split up. We don’t want to split families up, so we end up releasing people out into the community on bond, on bail.”
Nunez says, “It’s a huge loophole.”
“There has to be a policy change, something implemented, an emergency implementation that will stop this, or otherwise we will have thousands coming in.”
Immigrants are telling the Port Enforcement Team — or P.E.T. — that the cartels are ripping apart their state.

There’s no word on whether this same loophole is being used in Arizona.

Sudden Flood of Asylum Requests at U.S./Mexico Border

At the Otay crossing near the San Diego border last Monday, about 200 people coming from Mexico gained entry to the United States all using the same key phrase; they claimed they had a ‘credible fear’ of drug cartels. According to KSAZ FoxPheonix:

 

So many were doing this that they had to close down the processing center and move the overflow by vans to another station.

 

“They are being told if they come across the border, when they come up to the border and they say certain words, they  will be allowed into the country,” said a person who did not want to be identified on camera.  “We are being overwhelmed.”

 

This apparent new shift in tactics to enter the United States comes at a time when the Associated Press is reporting a spike in the number of asylum requests in the past few years:

 

According draft testimony for USCIS Associate Director Joseph Langlois that was to be submitted for a congressional hearing on asylum requests last month, USCIS received more than 19,119 asylum requests through the end of May. The agency anticipates receiving more than 28,600 by the end of the fiscal year.

 

According to the testimony, during the 2009 budget year the agency received just 5,369 such requests.

 

However, this new phenomenon is out of all proportion, even with this spike. To put those numbers in perspective with the 200 people making asylum requests on one day at one border crossing, 200 people a day equals 73,000 people a year — close to three times the total number received all year, at all border crossings.

 

KSAZ reports the new tactic could easily overwhelm the immigration system, quoting immigration attorney and former immigration official Pete Nunez:

 

“To make our system even more ridiculous than it has been in the  past,” he adds. “There are no detention facilities for families, so the family would have to be split up. We don’t want to split families up, so we end up releasing people out into the community on bond, on bail.” Nunez says, “It’s a huge loophole.”

 

“There has to be a policy change, something implemented, an emergency implementation that will stop this, or otherwise we will have thousands coming in.”

 

The goal, however, may be to overwhelm the system. This apparent new tactic comes on the heels of widely publicized activism by a group called ‘The Dream 9’ who also used a claim of asylum to gain re-entry to the country. As leftist organization Colorlines reported last week:

 

All nine of the activists have now established credible fear, a step toward an asylum hearing. Supporters are now hoping the Dream 9 will be eligible for parole, which would allow them to return to the United States until their asylum hearing dates.

 

This connection between the ‘Dream 9’ and the tactic of asylum was made by Spanish-language news source La Opiniòn. They report (translation by Google Translation) in an article entitled El asilo se volvió un sueño (in English: The asylum becomes a dream):

 

Following the release of nine Dreamers prisoners in Arizona, after a protest at the border, others have taken the path of asylum as a way to solve their deportation.

 

Media reports in San Diego are reporting that “hundreds of foreigners are trying to enter the country in the same way” and even that immigrants are being taught to use key phrases that they can stay in the country.

 

Reports tell of cases in the Port of Entry Otay Mesa, where 199 people have argued a ‘credible fear “to the drug cartels in Mexico.

 

And the validation of Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) of the status of “credible fear”, which allowed young people to stay at home and return to their families seems to have generated more of a headache for Immigration.

 

La Opiniòn goes on to quote Marshall Fitz, the immigration policy expert the liberal Center for American Progress, who points out that many would not qualify and it’s not a good ‘long term strategy’ for those attempting to cross the border.
