Consistent Surge of People Crossing Illegally

by KRGV.com  |  published on April 29, 2016

The number of people crossing the border illegally is on the rise. The Border Patrol chief said the number of people coming across is consistent with the surge two years ago.

Chief Patrol Agent and Commander of the South Texas Corridor Manuel Padilla Jr. insisted this time, his agents are better prepared and border security isn’t in jeopardy.

However, some people don’t agree.

More than 80,000 people crossed the border illegally since October. It includes more unaccompanied children and family members from Central America and Mexico.

It’s about the same as during the immigration crisis of 2014.

    Obama( is an illegal himself what can you expect)- hates America & Americans. Welcome to the new America where GOP & Demos are a one party version communist & Marxists. We need to close down the WH & Supreme Court are a bunch of communists, also a waste of PAYROLL just adding to the NATIONAL DEFICIT !

    How Eisenhower solved illegal border crossings from Mexico

    By John Dillin JULY 6, 2006

    Fifty-three years ago, when newly elected Dwight Eisenhower moved into the White House, America’s southern frontier was as porous as a spaghetti sieve. As many as 3 million illegal migrants had walked and waded northward over a period of several years for jobs in California, Arizona, Texas, and points beyond.

    President Eisenhower cut off this illegal traffic. He did it quickly and decisively with only 1,075 United States Border Patrol agents – less than one-tenth of today’s force. The operation is still highly praised among veterans of the Border Patrol.

    One day in 1954, Border Patrol agent Walt Edwards picked up a newspaper in Big Spring, Texas, and saw some startling news. The government was launching an all-out drive to oust illegal aliens from the United States.

    The orders came straight from the top, where the new president, Dwight Eisenhower, had put a former West Point classmate, Gen. Joseph Swing, in charge of immigration enforcement.

    General Swing’s fast-moving campaign soon secured America’s borders – an accomplishment no other president has since equaled. Illegal migration had dropped 95 percent by the late 1950s.

    ……………………..Do Your Fukin Job! …Stop whining!

    Enforce existing Immigration laws, NOT illegal Presidential orders.

    Protect the border and the US citizens that pay you to do so.

    STILL WONDERING HOW MUCH DAMAGE BARACKY THE IMAM WILL DO BEFORE HE LEAVES???????????????

  • Howie Subnick

    IT IS TIME FOR THE NATIONAL GUARD TO STAND SHOULDER TO SHOULDER ALONG THE BORDER IN ORDER TO PREVENT ILLEGALS FROM ENTERING THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! TRY CROSSING A BORDER IN EUROPE AND SEE HOW FAR YOU GET WITHOUT PAPERS.
    IT APPEARS THAT OUR SO CALLED GOVERNMENT AND SO CALLED PRESIDENT CAN CARE LESS WHO COMES HERE SO IT WILL BE EASIER FOR ILLEGALS TO TAKE OVER THIS COUNTRY. TRUMP MAY BE CALLING THE SHOTS NEXT YEAR, LETS SEE WHAT HE CAN DO TO FIX THIS PROBLEM.

  • jagragg

    It is not “crossing” it’s an intentional invasion by Mexico. That government is trying to break the Treaty Of Guadeloupe, in which Mexico seeded the territories in the South-West.

  • barbarakelly

    This has to be stopped. How in the hell can we check to see who is coming over or coming in. These people have to be checked out health wise. And obama YOU NEED TO LET THE BORDER PATROL DO THEIR DAMN JOB IN PROTECTING US —–CAUSE SURE AS HELL WON’T.!!!!!!

  • Smart Southerner

    I am becoming irate about those damn disgusting Illegals! In Kalifornia they are protesting Trump rallies while waving their SOB Mexican flags & pushing shoving & in a couple of cases actually hit a couple of supporters.

    What I want to know is why the police aren’t demanding to see a permit to protest & when the SOBs can’t produce one, lock them up, then deport the SOB Illegals ! Especially make it a point to DEPORT IMMEDIATELY the SOB Illegals waving Mexican flags! This is NOT their country & it is NOT their election.

    Maybe we need to file a class action lawsuit against every Police Department who does NOT demand to see a permit for the protests & does NOT arrest protesters who violate that law, then deport the Illegals. Make the AH Illegals pay a stiff fine before they are deported!

    If protesters were doing to Hillary gatherings (they’re not large enough to be called rallies), you can bet the PD would be locking up the Conservatives!

    • Lorene B

      I agree.

    • dhmill

      I understand how you feel but you must understand that the police are employed by the socialist Progressive Democrats who may even be organizing the demonstarations in the first place.
      And you would want to try to file a class action suit in a Democrat court? That would be like trying to sue Hitler in a Nazi court.
      You would more likely end up in jail yourself.

      • fbronson7

        yes they would work i think a mind field along the river would be a good idea

  • Wolfman

    They said the illegals are exploiting the ‘loopholes’ in the sytem….I believe the story meant to say that they are exploiting the ‘A$$HOLE’ who is supposed to be enforcing the system ( ie OButthead)!!!
    I don’t care how long it takes, every illegal needs to be escorted out of the country . If you don’t respect the laws of the country you enter…you don’t belong in that country….PERIOD…EXCLAMATION POINT

    • Smart Southerner

      You are right, Wolfman!!! PERIOD…EXCLAMATION POINT

  • raffaelecafagna

    Chief Patrol Agent and Commander of the South Texas Corridor Manuel Padilla Jr. ……the border are secure .
    Well …….just the name , Manuel Padilla , speaks for itself .

    • dhmill

      One should see the guards along the border of Egypt and across the canal in Saudi Arabia the same thing. They guard their borders!
      Period…… Exclamation!!!!
      Try to enter either of those countries illegally and you will be shot!

      • raffaelecafagna

        The U.S.Army is Guarding the DMZ ; North- South Korea Border . But our Border are Wide Open .

  • fbronson7

    100,000 American with guns on the border would only have to use 1 bullet each.

    • Lorene B

      This is an invasion and a militarized force along the border to protect it would make sense.

      • fbronson7

        I agree and any one and by that I mean any one should be shot

        • dhmill

          Perhaps a few thousand IED’s with proximity sensors would help.
          Better than a wall.

  • Patrick Driscoll

    Who cares who is muslim! They are savages and an insult to USA!

    • Front Sight

      Kill them all. Let God sort them out!!

  • Patrick Driscoll

    we do not need any of them. This should be selection process and approval process. We do not need more ignorant and un-American/illegal people in USA
    We had obuma and his family for 7.5 years and that is too many!

    • Smart Southerner

      The Muslim, Obama is so disgusting I almost gag whenever I see his face. Look what that piece of crap has done to America!!!!!

      Time to take our country back!

    • Smart Southerner

      We elected politicians to the House & the Senate & there isn’t a pair of pea sized cajones among the whole lot of them!

      I hope every single one of them get thrown out of office over the next 3 elections & replaced with normal, decent Americans, people who actually care about our country & it’s citizens.

      I am so disgusted with the current traitors we elected in DC (both parties), along with the perverts in the Supreme Court of Jokers!

      • rondaswanson

        It MUST be a Southern thang…..I feel the same as you do! At the age of 70, I have never felt such disgust in all my life. My disgust is not only is with the fraud-in-chief, it’s with the election of 2014, where we won by a landslide……boy did they deceive us, We The People! I remember the elation I felt, thinking that we would finally be able to get our country back on track. They all need to go – CLEAN HOUSE!!!
