Breitbart Texas ran into 43 illegal aliens along the Texas border — who were looking for US Border Patrol to turn themselves in. Breitbart decided to interview them.
Here’s more from Breitbart:
GRANJENO, Texas — Breitbart Texas encountered a total of 43 illegal immigrants in various groups in less than two hours as they were walking two miles north of the Rio Grande. The migrants, primarily from El Salvador, were looking for U.S. Border Patrol agents to pick them up.
The discovery of the various groups of illegal immigrants easily crossing into Texas comes at a time when U.S. Customs and Border Protection has been forced to acknowledge the record setting uptick in human smuggling after months of claiming the trends were below 2014 figures. Breitbart Texas reported that members of the National Border Patrol Council had accused CBP of trying to keep the record-setting numbers out of the public eye until after the 2016 Election.
While visiting a privately owned tract of land two miles from the Rio Grande in an area long touted by politicians as being part of a “secure” border region, this reporter encountered 43 illegal immigrants who were walking north from the river. The area visited by Breitbart Texas is used by the Gulf Cartel to move illegal immigrants from Central America and countries other than Mexico, while Mexican nationals, convicted criminals and previously deported aliens are moved through a separate area further west. In Starr County, Texas, the Gulf Cartel also moves the bulk of their drugs–taking advantage of the lacking physical border barriers and decreased presence of law enforcement. This reporter initially encountered a group of eight illegal immigrants including women and children, all from El Salvador.
