BORDER CHAOS: America TOPS GERMANY for Most Asylum Applications in 2017

posted by Hannity Staff - 6.19.18

Stunning new data released by the United Nations reveals that the United States now has more asylum requests than Germany; a country that has admitted more than one million refugees since 2015.

The UN Refugee Agency published the statistics Tuesday, showing that individual asylum applications in the US rose by 27% in 2017; reaching over 330,000 new requests and topping Germany’s 198,000.

“Meanwhile, more people last year from parts of North and Central America ‘undertook the perilous journey northwards to seek asylum in Mexico and the United States of America,’” writes Politico.

“We are at a watershed, where success in managing forced displacement globally requires a new and far more comprehensive approach so that countries and communities aren’t left dealing with this alone,” added the UN report.

The Drug Enforcement Agency discovered over $2 million worth of smuggled Mexican methamphetamines hidden inside Disney character figurines Wednesday; calling the haul the biggest “meth bust” in the Atlanta region.

According to DEA officials, the drugs were hidden inside over 500 figurines meant to look like beloved Disney characters such as Winnie the Pooh and Tigger.

“DEA Atlanta Division Special Agent in Charge Robert Murphy says the meth originated in Mexico and was destined for Atlanta,” writes a local CBS affiliate. “He says another load containing legitimate ceramic figurines was intercepted and is believed to have been intended as a decoy.”

The discovery comes as President Trump pledges to crackdown on human trafficking and drug smuggling at the United States’ southern border; vowing last week to deploy the National Guard to help secure the region.

Nearly 60 individuals -including children- were discovered in San Antonio, Texas late Tuesday evening crammed into a single tractor-trailer; raising serious questions over how the immigrants were able to successfully cross the US-Mexico border.

According to MySanAntonio News, authorities from multiple federal and local agencies descended on the south Texas town Tuesday night after the trailer was discovered in a quiet residential neighborhood.

“KSAT-TV reports that authorities from several agencies were called to a North Side neighborhood around 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday and found 55 people suspected of entering the country illegally in and around a tractor-trailer,” writes MySA.

“This truck was air-conditioned, thank God. This truck had water. So they were hydrated,” said San Antonio Fire Department Chief Charles Hood, adding that at least five immigrants were rushed to a nearby hospital.
