We already knew there was a leakage on the southern border between the United States and Mexico. Quite a bit of spiced up hombres making their way through (see Surprise! Illegal Immigrants Received HALF of All California Drivers’ Licenses in 2015). But this fresh report brings us news of another problem on the horizon. Mexicans aren’t the only ones making use of America’s frail fencing:
Only 42.1 percent of the “deportable aliens” that the U.S. Border Patrol apprehended along the U.S.-Mexico border in fiscal 2017 were citizens of Mexico, according to data collected by U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
A significant majority—57.9 percent—came from 111 other countries.
In fact, during fiscal year 2017, the Border Patrol apprehended deportable aliens along the U.S.-Mexico border who came from 84 countries that are not in the Americas.
The top three countries that ranked after Mexico for having their citizens apprehended as deportable aliens along the U.S.-Mexico border were Central American countries. These were Guatemala (65,871), El Salvador (49,760) and Honduras (47,260), which ranked second, third and fourth. But India ranked fifth.
In fiscal 2017, the Border Patrol apprehended along the Southwest Border 2,963 deportable aliens who were citizens of India. In fact, the Border Patrol apprehended more citizens of India in its nine sectors along the U.S.-Mexico border than citizens of Brazil (2,621) or Ecuador (1,429), which ranked sixth and seventh for having deportable aliens apprehended on the Southwest Border.
Mexican chili powder isn’t the only spice to salsa its way over the border. Looks like India’s cumin across too. Spice jokes.
This case just further proves why we need a wall. Badly. Other nations are using Mexico as a gateway into America (see Mexico Now Wants Border Wall of Their Own. To Keep Out Illegals. The Irony… and PLOT TWIST: Mexico Upset Immigrants Bringing Crime to THEIR Country). Nothing more than a stepping stone on the way to the American dream.
Thing is, these illegal aliens are snatching that dream like a non-consenting lady in the workplace. Rather than earning it the right way — through hard work, patience, a few fancy dinners. Not to mention the crime problem which accompanies unvetted masses of migrants.
Time to wall it up down south.
