While some people are finally waking up to the boarder crisis, most of the mainstream media is still grinding out story after story full of heart wrenching details of the long journey children are making from Central America to the “Promised Land.” Videos, like the one below, are one reason that the government is having such a hard time getting truth to people.
The following video was posted on June 5th,2014 in Rio Grande Valley, TX, by ABC News channel 5. Local news reporter Erica Proffer opened her report with,
“Central Americans say news reports in their countries are encouraging them to make the journey north to the United States. A mother and child told CHANNEL 5 NEWS that the message being disseminated in their country is, “go to America with your child, you won’t be turned away.”
“We found out why some risk this journey, some put themselves in this danger. They learned about it on their own television station. An American flag wrapped in a heart and shoes to match her mother. This is how a 6-year-old from Guatemala dresses for success. She wants a US education and a well-respected career.
When she asked her reason for being here, the little girl said she wants to study and be a doctor.
Her mother told News 5:
“I need to act right now because this [the open border] will end and my girl won’t have a future. I brought her because I know there is a better future for her.”
Of course, this interview was in 2014, before the public discovered the real volume of illegals flooding our borders. Obama worked hard to hide the real truth of the border crisis from us. They want us to believe that the “sudden” surge of people crossing our borders was the result of the fear of violence and terror taking place in their countries. That’s government-speak for they are here for jobs, education, and a better future.
Dennis Michael Lynch (DML) talked with host Buck Sexton of the BLAZE about the border crisis.
DML: …There’s a bunch of narratives that are false. First of all, when you talk about the children, you have to remember that that is a small portion of the people that are currently coming over. The big portion are what they consider to be families. And that’s anybody who’s accompanied with a child. That’s into the hundreds of thousands. When they come over they tell the border patrol agents that they are in fear of their lives back at their home country. That it’s either a gang or it’s a drug cartel ….And they ultimately [eventually] tell you that they’re here because they think they’re going to get amnesty or because they want to just work here in the US and send back home money.
BUCK: You mentioned how the numbers are actually much bigger. You said in the hundreds of thousands when you include family members on top of the illegal immigrant youths, undocumented aliens.
DML: For the last couple of months.
BUCK: For the last couple of months alone. Right. The scourge is even bigger than people realize. But 50% as I understand it are getting through undetected, and your research has shown this, that this includes criminals, terrorists, rapists, drug smugglers. Gangs are being paid large sums to take them across. We’re only counting those that we catch and know about. Just like with the war on drugs, there’s what we catch and there’s what we don’t even see. So the numbers are even bigger than that in a sense, and they do include people who we really don’t want here, drug smugglers, rapists, murders, and the like. Isn’t that correct?
DML: Buck, I’ve been doing this now for 4 years, almost fulltime. And I can tell you that it has never been worse than it is now. In Arizona alone … in Arizona there is a border patrol station. It’s the most expensive station in the country. It’s on a ranch. And there are $40 million worth of assets. All technology, all over the place. You name it, it’s there. 42 trucks have come in from Mexico through this ranch, cutting the steel girders that make this fence. How many do you think have been caught? Zero. There’s no will to stop this.
And the problem is,…I have been told this weekend, and that the federal government knows this, that MS 13 is being paid $50,000 per head to take “special customers” (sic) that are from the Middle East, Russia, and China, to get them through the border and deliver them anywhere in the US safely. This is what’s taking place while the Border Patrol is changing diapers and chasing families…
…You have to remember that the travel from Central America up to the US is about 45 days. And so what’s been happening over the last few weeks is that the phone calls have been going back from the families and from the children who have arrived here and said, “Hey listen, the worse thing you’ve got to put up with is that you’ve got to lay on the border patrol floor for a couple of days.” In many cases, Buck, and I don’t mean to sound insensitive, that’s an upgrade from where they’ve come from. And so, once they get past that they’re in America, somewhere and they’re feeling great about it. That message goes home and entire villages throughout Central America are cleaning out and they are coming to Texas….…The bulge is on the way. And the US… is really going to feel this in a huge way. Everybody will feel it. Whether, no matter which side of the isle you’re from, you’re going to feel it when school goes back in session.
Is it hate speech to tell the truth about what is happening to our country? Is it hate speech to say that what we were told by the Obama administration and the Democrats in Congress is a lie and that the complicit main stream media limits us to what the want us to see and no more?
In a recent interview, retired Border Patrol Officer, Zach Taylor, shared his insights into the border crisis drawn from his 26 years of experience as a Border Patrol agent. He, too, revealed that we are not being given the real numbers of illegal aliens coming across the border.
“In this situation where you have hundreds of thousands, literally, of people coming across the border and you’re only catching a small fraction, if you’re not telling the public that 80 to 90% of what’s coming across the border is not being apprehended, and you’re putting their focus on this 10% that is being apprehended, only showing them the 1% that are 6, 8, 10 years old, and appeal to the compassion of the American people, and not show them the people with these serious communicable diseases, the fact that they are known gang members. They have the gang tats all over them. Because they do not have a conviction in the United States, they’re turned lose free in the United States.
We don’t know when CDC takes custody of one of these people from Homeland Security and whisks them off somewhere, we don’t know where, what disease they have been diagnosed with. We know it’s communicable, we assume it’s serious. But that is being kept away, not only from the agents in the Dept. of Homeland Security, it is part of the controlled event where America doesn’t realize how serious the threat is. And they’re only being shown the compassionate side of the situation. That 1 to 2% of those 160,000 that appeal to the compassionate side of the people of the United States.
So, the children we are seeing are only a small percent of what is actually coming. They are the only ones the government wants to talk about. Why is that? Could it be, like Zach Taylor suggested, they want to appeal to our compassionate side? Perhaps they used sympathy for these “poor” children as a lever to open the door to stupid laws that brought us to the real border crisis we are facing now.
We know the Obama administration lied about the numbers crossing the borders. Instead of thousands was more like tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands. We know they lied about the reason they came. They’re not coming from persecution or fear. The children and families are looking for a better life and the amnesty that Central American television promised them, while the drug cartels and the terrorists are looking for something else.
We also know they are lying about who is coming. We see photos and videos of children supposedly fleeing their violent homelands in hope of a safe haven in the United States. But we’re not seeing the 14-17 year olds who are being recruited into violent gangs. Nor are we seeing the dangerous criminals and terrorists being released into towns and cities across America. For every unaccompanied child coming over the border there are as many as 9 adults crossing too. And, many of these adults are making a fortune from the “special interests” who are paying them to flood our nation with terrorists who have their own agenda.
If telling our readers the truth and exposing the dangerous lies coming from Congress and the MSM is hate-speech; if letting people know that not only the children that we’re allowed to see, but gangs, criminals, rapists, and terrorists are being allowed into the United States, then, I confess. I’m guilty.
