A video was just lately launched by Yuma Sector Border
Patrol officers exhibiting a border bandit robbing unlawful migrants – males, girls,
and kids – at gunpoint as they entered america. The incident
occurred in June, and the armed robber crossed the border again into Mexico after
despoiling the migrants of their meager possessions.
In keeping with Randy Clark, Breitbart reporter and retired 32-year United States Border Patrol veteran, “[t]he bandit scenario shouldn’t be a brand new phenomenon to the southern border.” Ever since its founding in 1924, the Border Patrol “battled for management of the border panorama to stop bandits from committing armed theft, rape, and homicide — typically in broad daylight.”
Regardless of this, Clark factors out, “[i]n the Eighties, close to San Diego, California, armed bandits roamed virtually freely every night time as tons of of migrants made the trek to hunt work within the booming agricultural business in Southern California.
The Border Patrol established a border bandit activity drive to enter the canyons close to San Ysidro, California in an effort to cut back bandit exercise.” Ultimately, issues like constructing fencing, lighting, and rising USBP personnel ranges decreased border bandit exercise, however “[a]s the video demonstrates, nevertheless, the issue has not been fully eradicated.”
Logically however sadly, soft-on-enforcement, equivocal
(“don’t come now”) Biden-Harris insurance policies and rhetoric are gasoline for
border banditry. Crime thrives and will increase when there’s chaos, anarchy, and
permissiveness – and that’s definitely what the present administration has
created by way of its self-inflicted border disaster which continues to be largely refuses
It additionally makes logical sense, that the extra unlawful border crossers there are (e.g. 180,000 Southwest border “encounters” in Might alone, and untold numbers who weren’t encountered), the extra people there are to rob or in any other case victimize. In fact, bandits are usually not the one risks the migrants face, on condition that they’re preyed upon by such unhealthy actors as human and drug smugglers, in addition to brutal gang members (MS-13, and so forth.) and different criminals infiltrating the migration flows.
And let’s not neglect that criminals and bandits
victimizing unlawful border crossers may also goal Americans residing in
the border zone.
One other main lesson right here must be the cruel actuality of unlawful migration, opposite to its rosy, romanticized portrayal by the unregulated-borders crowd (the “new Ellis Island,” an “act of affection,” and so forth.). The apologists for mass migration – each inside the authorities and out of doors of it – ought to notice that, if they really care in regards to the migrants (which is uncertain), they’re doing them a grave disservice and exposing them to hazard by encouraging and tolerating unlawful migration.
