Washington Post: Human Smugglers Reward Migrants Who Bring Children to the Border

Neil Monroe 24 Nov 2018 Breitbart News

Human smugglers slash their $10,000 per-person price when migrants bring children up to the U.S. border to exploit asylum loopholes, says the Washington Post.

Reached by phone in Kansas City, [Denys Adelmo] Mejia said he saved thousands of dollars by traveling with a child. His smuggler would have charged $10,000 if he had been traveling alone, he said; with Elizabeth Dayana, it cost $4,500 for both of them. He has three years to pay this off — in monthly installments — or his mother could lose her house.

“When you come with a child, [the smuggler] only delivers you to the Border Patrol,” said Mejia. “When you’re coming alone, they have to take you all the way across the desert.”

The loopholes have been created, cheered, and widened by American progressives, including lawyers at the ACLU and many elite legal firms, activists at pro-migration groups, Democrats in Congress, and reporters in many media outlets. The resulting inflow of illegal immigrants is cheered on by business groups because it delivers new wage-cutting workers and more consumers to their doors.

The reward for bringing children is so high that villages are losing many children and migrants even are making deals to bring other people’s children, and then claim them as their own kids at the U.S. border, the Post reported . . .

. . . . Between April and Setepmber, U.S border officials separated 170 migrants from the children they incorrectly claimed to be their own children, the Washington Post said. The article includes two examples of children being brought northwards by migrants who are not their parents.

The rising inflow of faked families comes as Democrats continue their loud complaints that President Donald Trump’s policies are causing “family separation” among migrants… . . .


Remember. 60-80% of the girls are raped along the way as well.

This is exceedingly inappropriate to facilitate these methods.

A politically correct form of abusing the stranger and soujourner culminating in defrauding of the wage earner (with lots of sexual deviancy along the way).



What is good about anything to do with these caravans moving north to our border?


Not one d**n thing.

So what can we do to aid our brothers and sisters who are so desperate that embarking on such a journey seems like a better choice than staying where they are?


Our government probably already gives their governments hundreds of millions of dollars. However, allowing these caravans of thousands of people to enter our country is not the answer. Sending a message to the world that we have an open southern border would not be a good thing.
