Yuma, AZ among three southern border areas most impacted by illegal invaders as Central Americans transplant themselves in USA
David Horowitz, writing for Conservative Review, provides shocking facts and figures from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) regarding the mass illegal invasion of the United States by Central Americans. April was a record breaking month.
Here are the key takeaways from the April CBP border report:
In total, 109,144 individuals were apprehended at the border – 98,977 between points of entry and 10,167 at points of entry. This is the highest number in 12 years, it is very likely the highest number of unique individuals of all time, given that many in the past were the same individuals deported multiple times within the same week, while almost all of these are first-timers.
The 58,474 individuals in family units set another record, but an increasing number of people are also coming as single adults, 31,606. The overwhelming number of single adults are from Mexico, while most of the family units and unaccompanied teens are from Central America.
The increases over the previous month seemed to be from the Rio Grande Valley (RGV), El Paso, and Yuma sectors, the three busiest corridors in absolute numbers. Overall, for this fiscal year, every sector has seen a massive increase in family units.
Guatemala still leads the pack for the most migrants coming in all categories, followed by Honduras, with a sharp drop-off for Salvadorans. Overall, 301,900 Guatemalans were apprehended at and between points of entry since the beginning of fiscal year 2018. In other words, in just 19 months, 1.7 percent of Guatemala’s population came to our border, and that is on top of the 815,000 Guatemalan nationals who already lived here, most of them illegally. A recent poll showed that a third of Guatemalans would like to immigrate to the U.S. A total of 224,078 Hondurans have come since FY 2018, 2.4 percent of the population. That is on top of the 623,000 already here. This means that the size of these countries’ populations in America equal roughly 6.6 percent and 9.2 percent of their respective populations in Guatemala and Honduras. “Only” 79,000 have come from El Salvador over the past 19 months, but because they dominated the Central American migration in previous years, we already had 1.4 million Salvadorans in this country as of last year, representing roughly 22 percent of their entire homeland population!
Unlike in the past, when mainly single adults were coming over and were immediately repatriated, most of these individuals are being released. ICE has released 168,000 just since December 21, and that number doesn’t include the 33,000 released by CBP directly without ever being processed in an ICE holding facility since March 19. The cost to taxpayers of just one year’s flow of illegal immigration, as estimated by the Center for Immigration Studies, would be roughly $150 billion.
Horowitz, a onetime leftist raised by Communist parents, eventually came to conservatism, which makes him reviled by the far left Southern Poverty Law Center and unwelcome on college campuses — in this case his own alma mater — when Republican student groups invite him. Campus Reform reports, “He was deemed too provocative to fringe elements and anarchists in the city of Berkeley.” Horowitz astutely observes,“Dissent is heresy.”
David Horowitz is an ardent supporter of President Donald Trump, which puts him even further in the radical left’s cross hairs.
