Immigrant deaths increase on U.S.-Mexico border

by
August 6, 2017

Immigrant DeathsThe U.N.’s migration agency said Friday that it has tallied an increase this year in deaths of people trying to enter the United States from Mexico even as illegal crossings appear to have dropped sharply.

The International Organization of Migration counted232 migrant deaths through the end of July, up from 204 a year earlier.

U.S. authorities have denied entry 140,000 times during the first half of the year, barely half of last year’s count, giving a rough sense of how sharply illegal crossings have dropped this year.

Fifty bodies were found in July alone, including 10 discovered in a truck in San Antonio, Texas, the migration agency said.

    Like we believe anything coming out of the UN. They need flogging in the UN, the UN needs to be taken out of our country, den of thieves and vipers plotting against the U.S.

      Yet our politicians have seen this for years and instead f building a wall they say we can’t afford a wall. We can stop illegal immigration. We have the weapons and the knowledge to do it and we are already 40 years late starting. We can afford a 20+ trillion dollar deficit but we can’t afford a wall! Bull sh it.

        Bush said we had money for the wall and his last speech to congress was that if the wall not built we could lose our Sovereignty. They spent it. Like they spend everything.

    Can’t believe anything the u.n says as they are the most corrupt organization…but if those statistics are right 240 dead trying to illegally enter our country…then commit horrific crimes and become parasites on america then that news is good….

    the most up to date illegal count of mexicans is now 54 million that we know of…
    not the 11 or 15 million the gov lies about….
    that total was decades ago….

    The more U.S. states, cities and federal authorities enforce existing immigration laws, the more difficult it is for immigrants to enter the U.S. illegally and the more penalties they will pay when caught. This has created a weak point in illegal immigration that is causing illegal immigrants to be abandoned during the immigration process; left to die of exposure. The more we continue to stop the illegal immigration, the less that immigrants will die.

    I’ve said this before and I’ll keep repeating it until the flood of criminals and leeches that Dr. Michael Savage has rightly described as: “The largest peacetime invasion in the history of the world” is stopped. I don’t care where you come from, as long as you do it legally, honestly and your intentions are honorable and productive. As my grandparents on my father’s side did around the turn of the last century and those ancestor’s on my mother’s side did well before then. Note to one and all: It’s “Illegal Alien”, in law and in fact. (To paraphrase the most famous line from the movie “Treasure of the Sierra Madre”: “¿Passporta’s? ¡We don’ need no stinking passporta’s!”) Anyway: “Don’t Worry, Bob’s Here!” That was the punch line from a rather memorable commercial for a temp agency from a few years ago. I took that line, applied it to illegal immigration and came up with the following tongue in cheek essay: “Don’t worry, B.O.B.’s here!” “B.O.B.” stands for “Bag limit? Or Bounty?” (If Bounty, “Dead or Alive?”) It went on from there. Unfortunately, it’s lost somewhere in the old, real old computer it was created on. You, however, I believe, get the idea. However, the trouble with bounty hunters is, as I see it, at least treefold; a. the cartel’s and their coyotes would take it personally and put out contracts on the known bounty hunters; and/or, b. the cartel’s would become the bounty hunters and collect thrice on their human cargo. First to bring them in, and second, to turn them in and then await for them want to try to come back with their help again. And that, my friends, would be a vicious cycle indeed. I have also suggested that we fire up the nation’s “Mothball Fleets”, work out a suitable deal with say, Argentina’s Terra del Fuego, or Singapore, or maybe Somalia, to serve as debarkation point(s) and have Mexico (or whatever country of origin applies) pay us a barrel of oil a day (or week, or month) for each and every day an illegal is here. These ships would be convoyed all the way with US Navy protection on training exercises in the area(s) involved. Another suggestion I’ve made over the years was to clear a ten to twenty five mile wide swath along our southern border (If they complain, we’ll just put it on their side) – salt water to salt water – and turn this strip of land into a live fire, combat training range subject to continuous, unannounced live fire exercises. From small arms to howitzers, aerial bombardment to shore batteries, booby traps to bouncing betty’s. 24 hours a day, everyday of the year, there will be continual and unpredictable live fire exercises and armed patrols, aided by UAV’s (unmanned aerial vehicles) equipped with electro-optical/infrared sensors, with standing orders to interdict all attempts to go through, under, around or over this combat training ground and intercept all trespassers. Then, when convenient, remove them to a staging area to be subjected to a biometrical scan and entered into a national database, then unceremoniously taken to the furthest border crossing and either sent packing immediately, or sent to a FEMA Detention Camp and prepared for a sea voyage. Oh, yes. It should be called the General “Black Jack” Pershing Military Reservation. Why? “In 1916 Pancho Villa and his bandido’s raided the town of Columbus, New Mexico, and in response President Woodrow Wilson sent General John “Black Jack” Pershing into Mexico after him. Back then, American authorities at least did something when the border was violated.”
