REPORT: Nearly 200 Haitians Arrested LAST WEEK After Crossing US-Mexico Border into Texas

posted by Hannity Staff - 6.20.19

More than 180 Haitian nationals were detained along the US-Mexico border just last week; raising new questions on how migrants from all over the world are entering Central America before traveling to the US.

“U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to the Del Rio Station in Texas have arrested a group of Haitian nationals every day this past last week,” reports Fox New York. “On June 11, agents assigned to the Del Rio Station arrested a group of 14 people from Haiti.  Over the next week, Del Rio Station agents encountered increasingly larger groups of Haitian nationals, including a group of 44 on June 17.”

“In total, more than 180 people from Haiti have been arrested by the U.S. Border Patrol in Del Rio Sector in the past week,” adds the article. “Prior to this week, Del Rio Sector had apprehended 17 Haitians since October 1, 2018.”

“Del Rio Sector Border Patrol agents have apprehended immigrants from 44 countries around the world,” said Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agent Raul L. Ortiz. “Our agents, along with the assistance of our DHS partners, continue to meet each new challenge as the ongoing humanitarian crisis evolves.”

A new report released by the Department of Homeland Security shows upwards of 1,000 migrants detained at the border have US criminal records; raising serious security concerns across the region.

“Hundreds of illegal immigrants attempting to cross the southern border as part of massive migrant caravans were found to have criminal histories in the U.S., according to newly obtained Department of Homeland Security documents,” reports Fox News.

“The DHS files were provided to House Oversight Committee Republicans in May and included internal data showing more than 1,000 migrants traveling as part of caravans to the border within the past nine months had ‘U.S. criminal histories’ and hundreds had ‘U.S. criminal convictions,’” adds Fox.

Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez reached a stunning new low earlier this week; accusing the Trump administration of operating a series of “concentration camps” along the US-Mexico border.

“The United States is running concentration camps on our southern border. That’s exactly what they are. They are concentration camps. If that doesn’t bother you… I like, whatever, I want to talk to the people that are concerned with humanity that ‘Never Again’ means something,” said the left-wing lawmaker.

“The fact that concentration camps are now an institutionalized practice in the home of the free is extraordinarily disturbing,” she added.

'FULL BLOWN EMERGENCY': 500+ ‘African Migrants’ Crossed US-Mexico Border Since MAY 30

Hundreds of migrants from Central African nations -including the Congo and Angola- have crossed the US-Mexico border in previous days; with experts saying the immigrants are entering Brazil before making their way towards the United States.

“More than 500 migrants from African nations — including Angola, Cameroon and the Republic of Congo — have been apprehended in Texas, at the Del Rio Border Patrol sector of the U.S.-Mexico border, since May 30, according to US Customs and Border Protection,” reports Fox News.

A single group of 116 migrants were apprehended at one time after crossing the Rio Grande into the United States.

According to federal agents, the immigrants’ inability to speak English or Spanish is creating “additional burdens on processing stations.”

“It remained unclear what route the African migrants had taken to arrive to the U.S.-Mexico border. Some Africans recently told NPR they traveled from Africa to Brazil and then north though Colombia and Central America,” adds Fox.

“BREAKING: City confirms hundreds of migrants from the Congo have arrived in SA. The city is in desperate need for French speaking volunteers,” posted a local news reporter from San Antonio.

“U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to the Del Rio Station apprehended a large group of 116 individuals Thursday,” stated a press release from the Border and Customs Protection Agency.

“Large groups present a unique challenge for the men and women of the Del Rio Sector,” said Chief Raul Ortiz. “This large group from Africa further demonstrates the complexity and severity of the border security and humanitarian crisis at our Southwest border.”

“This is the first large group apprehended in the Del Rio Sector and the first large group of people from Africa – including nationals from Angola, Cameroon and Congo – apprehended on the Southwest border this year,” adds the statement.

The arrests come as more and more top-tier Democrats admit a public “crisis at the border” after months of denying the President’s national emergency declaration.

“We’ve never not said that there was a crisis. There is a humanitarian crisis at the border. And some of it provoked by the actions taken by the administration and… I’ll just quote our friends from the Evangelical community when they came in and testified in the last Congress in one of our rump hearings because the Republicans wouldn’t have the hearing,” said Pelosi during an interview on Satellite Radio.

“We will hopefully work together in a bipartisan way to address this. But, yes, it is a crisis…” she added.

BORDER CHAOS: US Agents Arrest 116 Migrants from CENTRAL AFRICA at US-Mexico Border

The total chaos sweeping the US-Mexico border continued over the weekend; with US officials confirming they detained a “large group” of migrants originating from Central African nations like Angola and the Congo.

“U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to the Del Rio Station apprehended a large group of 116 individuals Thursday,” stated a press release from the Border and Customs Protection Agency.

“Large groups present a unique challenge for the men and women of the Del Rio Sector,” said Chief Raul Ortiz. “This large group from Africa further demonstrates the complexity and severity of the border security and humanitarian crisis at our Southwest border.”

“This is the first large group apprehended in the Del Rio Sector and the first large group of people from Africa – including nationals from Angola, Cameroon and Congo – apprehended on the Southwest border this year,” adds the statement.

The arrests come as more and more top-tier Democrats admit a public “crisis at the border” after months of denying the President’s national emergency declaration.

“We’ve never not said that there was a crisis. There is a humanitarian crisis at the border. And some of it provoked by the actions taken by the administration and… I’ll just quote our friends from the Evangelical community when they came in and testified in the last Congress in one of our rump hearings because the Republicans wouldn’t have the hearing,” said Pelosi during an interview on Satellite Radio.

“We will hopefully work together in a bipartisan way to address this. But, yes, it is a crisis…” she added.

Pelosi’s comments are drastically different from her rhetoric just months ago after President Trump declared a “national emergency” at the US-Mexico border.

“The President’s unlawful declaration over a crisis that does not exist does great violence to our Constitution and makes America less safe, stealing from urgently needed defense funds for the security of our military and our nation,” said a joint statement released by Pelosi and Schumer’s office.

“There. Is. No. Crisis. At. The. Border,” posted the official Twitter account of the Democratic Party.
