REPORT: Drug Cartels Using ‘Migrant Caravans’ to Smuggle Narcotics Across the Border

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.08.19

Mexican drug cartels are using the chaos caused by incoming ‘Migrant Caravans’ to smuggle drugs into the United States and avoid detection, reports the Washington Times.

According to the report, multiple cartels are using the large groups to “distract” and “overwhelm” Border Patrol Agents; using the time to transfer drugs across the border in another location.

“They’re using these large groups to facilitate the crossing of narcotics because they know they’ve tied up a large percentage of our manpower,” confirmed a Border Patrol official.

“On any day, about 150 Border Patrol agents are pulled out of the field and have to do ‘hospital watch,’ staying with hundreds of illegal immigrants who were so sick when they arrived that they needed immediate medical attention, officials said,” writes the Washington Times.

The migrant caravan slowly making its way towards the United States’ southern border with Mexico continued to grow in recent days, with local reporters saying the marching immigrants are now estimated at 14,000 individuals.

According to Newsweek, the “caravan” is gradually gaining more members as it makes its way north towards American border crossings in Texas and California.

“In a series of tweets, President Donald Trump has unsuccessfully urged Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador to halt the migrant caravan, which is believed to have reached more than 14,000 members in southern Mexico,” writes Newsweek.

The President has routinely warned the migrants to return to their home countries in recent days, saying “We are a great Sovereign Nation. We have Strong Borders and will never accept people coming into our Country illegally!”

A high-ranking official with United States Customs and Border Protection confirmed this week that federal authorities arrested over 3,000 individuals at the US-Mexico border in a single, 24-hour period.

According to the Washington Times, Kevin McAleenan -the commissioner of US Customs and Border Protection- told Congressional leaders Tuesdasy that his agency has detained thousands after the ‘migrant caravan’ arrived in Tijuana weeks ago.

“The government snared more than 3,000 illegal immigrants in just one day last week,” writes the Times. “More than 1,100 of those caught either jumping the border or trying to come through a border crossing without permission were children, either traveling alone or with parents, and forced on the treacherous journey.”

“It is indeed both a border security and a humanitarian crisis,” McAleenan told the Senate Judiciary Committee.
