A human smuggler used two innocent children as decoys Monday evening to sneak 10 illegal aliens across the southern U.S. border near San Diego, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
Surveillance footage shared to Twitter by the agency’s San Diego branch shows how a smuggler casually dropped two Salvadoran girls, reportedly ages six and nine, from over an “aging border barrier.”
In response, local CBP agents “vacated their patrol positions” to retrieve the girls, provide them medical care and transfer them to a nearby immigration facility for processing.
While the agents — everyday Americans whom Democrat politicians and their media allies routinely disparage as veritable “Nazis” — were busy caring for the children, a gang of 10 illegal aliens sidled across the border so quickly and inconspicuously that CBP was unable to apprehend them.
Last month alone nearly 75,000 illegal aliens were either apprehended by CBP after illegally crossing into the U.S. or showed up at legal ports of entry to apply for asylum. It’s unclear how many additional thousands may have seeped across the border undetected like the illegals seen above.
“In February, we saw a 30 percent jump over the previous month, with agents apprehending or encountering nearly 75,000 aliens,” Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen testified in front of the House Committee on Homeland Security last week.
“This is an 80 percent increase over the same time last year. And I can report today that CBP is forecasting the problem will get even worse this spring as the weather warms up.”
And thanks in part also to smugglers’ increased willingness to exploit children: “We have encountered recycling rings, where innocent young people are used multiple times to help aliens gain illegal entry.”
The Democrat politicians who control the lower chamber of Congress have shown no interest in doing anything to resolve this growing crisis. Instead they’re sticking to endlessly investigating President Donald Trump over non-existent crimes and stymieing his voter-backed agenda.
Meanwhile, countless illegals continue to stream across the border, bringing disease and pestilence with them. According to a recent statement by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, as of March 7 a total of 2,287 illegals had been quarantined due to the communicable afflictions they carried, including but not limited to mumps, influenza and chickenpox.
All of these illegals are receiving free health care courtesy the American taxpayer.
“ICE takes very seriously the health, safety and welfare of those in our care. ICE is committed to ensuring the welfare of all those in the agency’s custody, including providing access to necessary and appropriate medical care,” ICE spokesman Brendan Raedy said.
Despite ICE’s efforts to help these illegals, the fact-averse, radical left has blamed ICE agents themselves for the illegals’ illnesses, with some describing the agency’s detention facilities as “Neo Nazi death camps.” Never mind that the illegals brought these diseases with them.
It’s a logistical mess and is a huge political issue on both sides! DemocRATs want to shove this under the rug and then blame Trump for it. Stupid.

Never mind also that these conditions have allegedly been spreading to ICE agents and their families:
Hi Kevin… I live next to the border. New Mexico… I know and am in contact with several agents in the area. Several of them have come down with various “new to the area” diseases in the past few months. Which they have now passed on to their children. It is becoming dangerous.

The facts simply don’t matter to leftists or the Democrats they’ve elected to office. Two weeks ago the Democrat-led House passed a bill to block the president’s national emergency and thus prevent him from drawing money from various government sources to fund a much-needed border wall.
“Is your oath of office to Donald Trump or is it to the Constitution of the United States?” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said to Republicans in a floor speech at the time in a bid to get them to vote for her bill. “You cannot let him undermine your pledge to the Constitution.”
Declaring a national emergency isn’t unconstitutional. Moreover, what does she care about more — opposing Trump or protecting the American people? Her continued denial of the existence of a border crisis and her attempts to stop Trump from building a wall suggests she only cares about the former, as noted by social media:
@SpeakerPelosi Every time you say there is no emergency on the border (after getting all the statistics) you are telling the American people “screw you;” we don’t care about you, safety be damn. And if you get murdered by an illegal, “oops.” Disgusting at best.

But you don’t care about Americans. You prove that each and every day.

Equality for ALL Americans makes sense. How about you taking your responsibilities seriously by protecting America’s sovereignty and American lives? Based upon your actions, you don’t care about Americans or the families of those that have been Murdered by Illegal Aliens. FIX IT!

Actually congress gave the President the power to do this. Other Presidents have done the same thing but you want to change the rules now because of your hatred for this President. So sad you don’t care about Americans but only stand up for illegals.
