President Biden can’t keep pretending he hasn’t caused an immigration crisis at the border. Now, even Mexico’s President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador is even voicing his concerns over the catastrophe saying Biden’s relaxed policies are “stoking illegal immigration” and giving business to the country’s extremely dangerous drug cartels.
Reuters recently reported Mexico is “worried the new U.S. administration’s asylum policies are stoking illegal immigration and creating business for organized crime.”
The Daily Wire reports:
“They see him as the migrant president, and so many feel they’re going to reach the United States,” Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said of Biden. “We need to work together to regulate the flow, because this business can’t be tackled from one day to the next.”
U.S. policies that Mexican officials believe is driving the criminal activity include “support for victims of gangs and violence, streamlining of the legalization process, and suspension of Trump-era accords that deported people to Central America.”
The Mexican cartels changed their modus operandi “from the day Biden took office” and are now showing “unprecedented” levels of sophistication in their criminal activity, which includes “briefing clients on the latest immigration rules, using technology to outfox authorities, and disguising smuggling operations as travel agencies.” The smugglers communicate with the migrants on numerous social media channels to update them on “impending checkpoints, when freight trains they can jump on pass, where to stay and how to navigate immigration laws.”
The smugglers are telling the migrants to go to their local authorities and make complaints that they have been the victims of crime that way they can apply for asylum in the U.S. and the migrants are being told to bring children so it is easier for them to apply for asylum.
The recent tidal wave of immigrants has already begun to overwhelm the Department of Homeland Security. This week DHS chief Alejandro Mayorkas requested additional DHS volunteers to help with the crisis.
