As usual, Republicans appear to be the only ones trying to sound the alarm about the worsening crisis regarding the massive influx of illegal migrants along the U.S.-Mexico border, especially Republicans from border states.
In recent weeks, Republicans from Texas especially have led delegations to the state to talk to Border Patrol and Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents who are struggling to deal with the influx. In March alone, for instance, a record 170,000 migrants were intercepted crossing illegally into the U.S., with 1,000 or more getting away…each day.
But there is another anomaly that Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert just recently discovered: It appears as though the Department of Homeland Security may be helping migrants find their way to detention facilities, where they will be taken in, cared for, and then sent to the country’s interior, where they will disappear, most of them, and never show up for their asylum hearings in a couple of years.

In a video he posted to social media Friday, Gohmert “mentioned some of the dangers of crossing the river in that area — namely snakes and tarantulas — and noted that in spite of the risks, large numbers of particularly women and children were crossing anyway,” The Daily Caller reported.
“Who is putting up the signs pointing to asylum at the U.S. border in Texas and why are they in Homeland Security bags? #BidenBorderCrisis,” he tweeted along with the posted video.
The DC added:
In the video, Gohmert pointed out a sign hung on a tree near where he said illegal immigrants were coming out of the river. That sign, he said, gave directions to a Border Patrol processing station a few kilometers away.
“It’s amazing how many women and children are coming right now, just because the president is promising them amnesty down the road,” Gohmert said. “But the great irony here is theses are on Homeland — they put these messages in Homeland Security bags so they’ll stay nice and dry and fresh for the thousands and thousands of people that are coming up from the river right over here.
“Tarantulas, snakes and all kinds of stuff around here,” Gohmert continued, adding, “This is no place people ought to be coming in.”
Meanwhile, the Biden regime is continuing to signal to migrants that it is okay for as many of them as possible to traipse into the country with its policy of open borders. The word is out south of the border: If kids, especially, but also families can make it across and turn themselves in to immigration authorities, then they’ll be released.
Other options the administration is considering will also cost American taxpayers.
The U.S. is “considering a conditional cash transfer program to help address economic woes that lead migrants from certain Central American countries to trek north,” Reuters reported Friday, referencing outgoing Biden southern border czar Roberta Jacobson.
She went on to tell the newswire that “the U.S. government isn’t going to be handing out money or checks to people,” though it’s not clear how the money transfers would take place.
The administration is also going to “consider how vaccines could help the countries’ ailing economies,” Reuters added.
