Agents with the United States Border Patrol confirmed Wednesday that New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and his security detail illegally crossed into Mexico and then back into the United States while visiting the border last month.
According to the Associated Press, the Big Apple mayor violated both Mexican and United States immigration law when he crossed into Mexico on foot while visiting El Paso, Texas.
“De Blasio went to a holding facility for immigrant children but was denied entry. He then went to Mexico and crossed into the U.S. to get a view of the facility. The New York Police Department runs de Blasio’s security detail,” writes the AP.
“According to the letter, a uniformed Border Patrol agent noticed a group on the Rio Grande River flood plain south of the Tornillo, Texas, Port of Entry, taking photos of the holding facility. The agent asked if anyone from Border Patrol or public affairs was there to authorize their presence. A New York Police Department inspector said no, according to the letter, and when the agent asked the group how they arrived, they pointed to Mexico,” adds the Associated Press.
The Mayor is a fierce critic of President Trump’s immigration policies; calling for the total abolishment of ICE earlier this month after the Commander-in-Chief’s executive order ending “family separations.”

DE BLASIO’S DELUSION: NYC Mayor Bizarrely COMPARES Himself to Gandhi, Edison
Hyper-liberal Mayor of New York City Bill De Blasio went on a self-delusional tirade while commenting on his failed liberal agenda, bizarrely comparing himself to world-renowned leaders and innovators such as Thomas Edison and Mahatma Gandhi.
According to Politico, De Blasio was defending his left-wing policies and agenda when he launched into his bizarre rant; adding that his much-maligned policies that have failed to gain traction in the nation’s biggest city may work on a national scale.
“I want to talk to anyone who thinks that and tell them they need to start thinking more,” said the mayor. “I mean, give me a break. So every time someone tries something and it doesn’t work, it invalidates anything else they might do going forward?”
“Tell Thomas Edison that, and Henry Ford, tell Mahatma Gandhi. How many people fell on their faces along the way trying things, experimenting with things, had setbacks? There’s no leader who hasn’t had setbacks.”
De Blasio’s recent visit to Iowa and other prominent events is raising serious questions over whether the New York politician is planning to enter the national political arena. The Big Apple Mayor easily cruised to re-election this month in New York, defeating Republican challenger Nicole Malliotakis by a margin of 66% to 28%.
IT BEGINS: Bill De Blasio Calls for ABOLISHMENT of ‘BROKEN’ ICE
Big Apple Mayor Bill de Blasio slammed the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency Friday; blasting the “unreasonable” department and calling for the abolishment of ICE in the aftermath of “family separations.”
De Blasio took to twitter to attack the federal agency, saying America needs “reasonable law enforcement” along the US-Mexico border; adding that ICE agents are “not reasonable law enforcement.”
“Every country needs reasonable law enforcement on their borders. ICE is not reasonable law enforcement. ICE is broken, it’s divisive and it should be abolished,” he tweeted.

The Mayor’s comments come just days after the President signed an executive order ending “family separations” along the border; effectively permitting minors to remain with their parents while being processed by federal agents.
