Castro Turned Back

Castro ‘Escorts’ Invading Migrants To Border, Agents Return Them To Mexico

Apparently, in an effort to resist federal law that requires migrants to wait in Mexico for their asylum claims to be processed, Julian Castro tried to get them into the country by using their secual orientation status.

2020 hopeful, Julian Castro tried to get a group of migrants into the United States, but was turned back by border agents. Obama’s Housing and Urban Development Secretary [who ‘misplaced’ $2 billion] traveled to the Brownsville, Texas, region and escorted 13 migrants to the border.

But, those migrants were returned to Mexico to wait (as required by law) until their asylum claims were adjudicated.

Breitbart News reported:

The Texas Civil Rights Project confirmed that all the migrants escorted to the border by Castro were returned to Mexico as part of President Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy.

Castro said the migrants identify as “members of the LGTBQ community” who have been “beat up,” and one is disabled.

“We presented them to these border agents and said that they should not be … they should not be in Mexico,” Castro said.

“The Trump administration has chosen cruelty,” Castro said. In a separate post, Castro accused Trump of purposefully “killing people.”

For Donald Trump, the cruelty is the point.

What I saw in across the border in Matamoros, Mexico is a national embarrassment—one entirely of Trump’s creation.

Castro, as part of his broader open borders plan, has vowed to end Trump’s effective “Remain in Mexico” policy where, rather than border crossers being released into the U.S. so long as they claim asylum, they now must wait in Mexico while their claims are adjudicated.

The policy has prevented mass fraud of the asylum system, as Breitbart News has reported.

As of August, for instance, none of the 1,200 migrants who were waiting in Mexico for asylum in the U.S. had been found to be eligible. Before the policy was implemented, those border crossers would have been released into the interior of the country, forcing federal immigration officials to then find, detain, and deport them after being deemed ineligible for asylum.

The law requiring these fraudulent asylum seekers makes perfect sense for saving American taxpayer dollars and resources. Moreover, many people point out that these illegal migrants are not loose in the U.S. to commit additional crimes.
