A group of Congressmen were shocked to learn last week that illegal aliens use the same children over and over again as props to get them into the country without being deported.
Illegals understand that U.S. authorities allow “families” to get into the U.S. without much effort to stop them, so human smugglers recycle the same kids over and over again as “family members” to fool American immigration officials into thinking the kids are actually family.
“Right now, they’re getting their biographical information: name, first name, last name, date of birth, nationality. Right now, they may ask them where they’re going — how many people, if it was a family unit, were they by themselves, were they minors?” an agent, who spoke on background, told the group of lawmakers.
“Every one has a kid, at least one. Every one has a kid,” one congressman reacted at the scene.
The border patrol agents noted that as soon as the adults get into the U.S. they send the kids back to their home country so another fake parent can use the child to get back into the U.S.
“They know that’s their ticket in,” one lawmaker told the paper.
One of the congressmen noted that they saw large groups of illegals simply walking up to border patrol and turning themselves in.
“They just walked up and surrendered themselves. They did not try to run. They did not try to get away because what we learned last night … is that if they come in as a family unit, they will be released probably less than two days, and they’re not allowed to hold them for a certain period of time, so essentially they are presenting themselves at the border and saying they are a family unit,” Ball said.
And border patrol agents are just starting to try and document these recycled kids:
A Border Patrol agent on the tour said the agency has begun documenting and referring for prosecution individuals who recycle children who traveled from Central America to the U.S. then were sent back to Central America or Mexico so that an unrelated adult could take them on that same journey and claim them as his or her child.
But Congress won’t let border patrol agents take fingerprints or other ID from these kids, so it is hard to stop the process.
The border patrol has noted that it has identified over 3,000 cases of fraudulent families crossing the border. And you know there are many thousands more than that.
So, when Democrats show you photos of illegals with kids in tow and try to get you to feel sorry for these “families,” you can understand that almost NONE of the illegals crossing our border are bringing their children with them to escape a terrible life and to make a life for their kids… because they ARE NOT bringing their kids!!
