Mexico Becoming Door For Middle East, Agents Have Arrested 122 This Year

The majority are coming from Bangladesh.

Border agents believe they have found a pipeline for illegal border crossings from the Middle East through Mexico.

Border agents believe they have found a pipeline for illegal border crossings from the Middle East through Mexico.

Last week, seven Bangladesh nationals were arrested by Customs and Border Protection near Laredo, a town in South Texas. The Laredo sector accounts for 122 of the illegal attempts made by Bangladeshi immigrants this year.

The President of the National Border Patrol Council Local 2455, Border Patrol Agent Hector Garza, says that this sector is clearly a smuggling pipeline from the Middle East.

Agent Garza believes that these illegals are being taught how to avoid deportation if caught. Many claim to be unaccompanied minors, and are then are processed by immigration under the “catch and release programs.”

Under closer inspection during medical and dental examinations, officers can tell that they are adults. However, no charges are made for them lying to agents and they are released with just a Notice to Appear.

For Garza, there is no way for Americans to know how many times other people from countries that sponsor terrorism have crossed there.

Laredo Sector Assistant Chief Patrol Agent Gabriel Acosta said that agents arrest people from all over the world, every day.

Also in Texas, a new video has emerged that shows an illegal border crossing onto a rancher’s land. An Urdu-English dictionary was left behind there by the illegal alien, which suggests that this person speaks the popular Pakistani language.

On the other side of the world, thousands of Bangladesh economic migrants move to the Middle East to work and live. Their financial remittances to their families back home account for over 6 percent of the Bangladesh GDP. The country mostly exports low-skill manpower out of the country.

Even if the illegal immigrants are not on a jihad mission, funded by states which sponsor terrorism, their economic impact could have devastating effects on the U.S. economy.

Mexican remittances from the U.S. totaled over $26 billion in 2017, up approximately $2 billion from the previous year. As one of Mexico’s best sources of foreign income, it was over $8 billion dollars more profitable that its oil exports.

The American economy cannot sustain more losses on such a grand scale, particularly those which avoid proper taxation. Illegal immigration, particularly from those countries which are currently under a travel ban to the United States, must be controlled before it is too late.

With hope for future law and order, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection began physical tests of the border wall prototypes along the southwest border. Attempts will be made to scale and otherwise penetrate the wall, in a “regimented process.”

During the fiscal year 2017, 98 percent of all apprehensions made by the border patrol was along this section of the border. If protected by a border wall, this number would likely fall to sustainable levels and cut off the pipeline for criminals.

Increased border protection would not only stop the illegal economic migrants and Jihad terrorists, it will also stop drug smuggling and the violent crime that plagues the southern border.

Again in Laredo, Texas, more than $2.4 million in cocaine was seized during a traffic stop along the border. That is about 320 pounds of drugs.

Border agents are often confronted with violent criminals and find themselves in life and death situations, sustaining serious injuries. During the president’s visit to the border wall prototypes, agents reported an increase in morale after being recognized for the tough job that they perform.

Many of the border and immigration agents know that a wall would compensate for those government agencies that operate understaffed and on limited resources.

The pipeline passageway that is being used by Bangladeshi and Middle Eastern illegal aliens poses a grave threat to national security and to our economic freedom. Americans deserve a secure border and immigration reform.

Without an effective plan to curtail the number of people crossing the border into the United States, the standard of living in the country will fall. Upward mobility will be stifled, as younger generations enter the marketplace with fewer jobs and opportunities.

Those who protect the border deserve to be heard and protected. The President’s border wall project will go a long way to solving these issues for future prosperity. Laredo, Texas could experience some relief from the constant crossings that make life dangerous in this small southern town.
