Migrants Now Trying to Sneak Into U.S. Via Dangerous Desert Crossings, Putting Kids in Danger

The risk is well known long before any of these families hit the road.

With the heat on the easiest places for border crossings for illegals, it appears that illegals are now choosing to trek through the more dangerous, desert areas and they are endangering their children by dragging them along for the perilous journey. And many were sick before they even left their Southern and Central American homes.

According to the Los Angeles Times, families of illegals are choosing the more dangerous crossings to make to steal their way into the U.S.A.

Most people trying to sneak into the country still use long-established routes in Texas’ Rio Grande Valley. But recently released government figures show a growing number of families crossing along the 268-mile stretch of border known as the El Paso Sector, which includes western Texas and all of New Mexico.

In November, the U.S. Border Patrol in that sector caught 11,617 people traveling in families — nearly 20 times the total during November 2017 and just over a fifth of all migrants apprehended on the southern border. The majority of those families were from Guatemala.

Kevin McAleenan, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection commissioner, told reporters Monday that the increase in migrant families was creating an “unprecedented crisis.”

According to immigration officials, from Dec. 22 to Dec. 30, Border Patrol sent 451 immigrants — including 259 kids under 5 — to hospitals.

Despite the claims of Democrats that our evil immigration officers are making kids of illegals sick, it appears that they were ill before they even left their home country.

“Many were ill before they departed their homes,” McAleenan told the paper, citing cases of flu, pneumonia, tuberculosis and parasites.”

McAleenan also noted that smugglers are pushing families into “new and remote areas” to “avoid paying crossing fees to the cartels that control more popular routes.”

Guadalupe Correa-Cabrera, a professor of policy and government at George Mason University, added that the costs for passage is climbing for illegals and the kids are bearing the brunt of the dangers.

“Kids are dying because now the families are trying to make it through other points,” she told the Times.

In the end, we can pin the blame for this on the bad parents who are putting their kids in mortal danger with these perilous crossings.

THEY are to blame, not ICE, not the department of immigration, not the U.S. government, and certainly not President Donald Trump.

AOC Fails to Mention Amazon Only Bringing 1,500 Jobs Instead of 25,000 After She Interfered

23,500 less jobs. Not good.

It might be time to raise the age limit for members of Congress. However old AOC is is clearly too young. She’s far too naive to be in such a position of power. And worse yet, you just know she’ll run for president in 2024. That’s a devastatingly scary thought. After working to undermine Amazon’s deal to open a headquarters in her state, which would’ve brought with it billions for the local economy and 25,000 jobs, AOC celebrated and Amazon moved on. On Saturday, the Jeff Bezos-led company announced it would open a much, much smaller operation in Manhattan, employing only 1,500 people. In case AOC isn’t sure, that’s a lose of 23,500 potential jobs. She doesn’t care, though. She thinks she won the argument. Naturally, she’s wrong. Go figure. Me waiting on the haters to apologize after we were proven right on Amazon and saved the public billions https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1203093051859750912?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1203093051859750912&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Focasio-cortez-declares-victory-after-amazon-announces-offices-in-nyc-but-theres-a-yuge-problem-with-her-story%2F From Daily Mail: However, the congresswoman’s critics were quick to point out that Amazon’s new plans differ significantly from the cancelled HQ2. ‘Another day, another viral misleading tweet from AOC. Amazon is leasing office space in Manhattan for 1,500 employees, which is 6% of the 25,000 jobs its HQ2 in Queens (her district) was supposed to add,’ tweeted Peter J. Hasson, a reporter for the Daily Caller. ‘Amazon is now going to create just 6% of the jobs they would’ve before AOC killed their deal with NYC (1,500 vs 25,000), but by all means take a victory lap for the 23,500 jobs that are never coming to NYC thanks to AOC,’ tweeted Josh Jordan, and marketing-research consultant in Chicago. While we’re here, let’s clear up some GOP disinfo: – “It’s 1500 jobs vs 25,000”: The 25,000 jobs figure was a 10-20 year fantasy # from Amazon, not a promise or…

Democrat Rep. Says Trump Must Be Impeached In Order to ‘Deal With Slavery’ [Watch]

This is some kind of awful, right here…

Texas Rep. Al Green has been calling for President Trump’s impeachment more often than quite possibly any other Democrat in Congress. The guy absolutely loathes the duly-elected leader simply because…his policies are working? His guy didn’t win in 2016? He needs the attention? Who knows? There isn’t a legitimate answer to the question. The only thing Dems understand is that they dislike 45’s tweets so they want him out of office. How mature. Check out Green’s appearance on MSNBC where he finds the nerve to conflate Trump with “slavery,” while ignorantly ignoring that black unemployment is at record low levels in America. From Daily Wire: Green, who has previously stated that Trump must be impeachment or else “he will get reelected,” said this week that there is “no limit” to the number of times that Democrats can try to impeach the president. WATCH: Democrat Rep. Al Green says the impeachment of @realDonaldTrump is needed “to deal with slavery.” MSNBC’s Alex Witt “mmhhhmms” throughout the clip in agreement. https://twitter.com/SteveGuest/status/1203420159639277573?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1203420159639277573&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fdemocrat-congressman-al-green-trump-must-be-impeached-to-deal-with-slavery Let them keep thinking Trump should be impeached. Let’s see how that plays out for them. As we’ve seen so far, it’s not going well. In fact, it’s going very poorly. Here’s the latest regarding impeachment support, via Washington Examiner: The Emerson poll released Thursday found support for impeachment has dropped from 48% to 43% since October, while opposition to impeachment has risen from 44% to 45%. Independents are key in the shift, with 49% opposing impeachment and only 34% supporting impeachment. In October, 48% of independents supported impeachment and 39% opposed. From Daily Wire: Kurt Volker, the former U.S. special envoy to Ukraine, and Tim Morrison, a top National Security Council official that was on President Donald Trump’s Ukraine phone call, both confirmed during their testimonies on Tuesday that there was…
