President Trump and other Republicans have made it clear that the “asylum” system is being abused.
Nothing could make that more clear than this.
Cartels are at war with each other. Earlier this week, two rival cartels engaged in a massive gunfight just minutes away from the Arizona border.
The video says at least 5 died during this particular shootout.
The losing side then came over and asked America for asylum.
You know… because they’re afraid for their lives now. Poor dears.
According to the Conservative Review:
Late Monday into Tuesday, there was a significant increase in violence between rival Sinaloa cartel factions in Mexican towns Agua Prieta and Naco, both border towns with Arizona cities Douglas and Naco. Specifically, about nine people were killed in Agua Prieta and Naco, according to Cochise County Sheriff Mark Dannels. The sheriff told CR in an interview today that his sources told him on Tuesday “the plaza boss for Sinaloa in Agua Prieta got upset with one of the leaders of his team and wiped out the entire team, including the girlfriend of the lower boss.” Dannels told CR that the shootout happened just “half a block from the border” with Douglas, Arizona. Two adults and three children were taken to hospitals in Douglas and Tucson.
As I mentioned, the surviving cartel members then applied for asylum in America.
Sheriff Dannels said he has a great relationship with local Border Patrol and is coordinating with them, other border sheriffs, and the Arizona Department of Public Safety.
“Our first job is to protect our communities and the citizens of my county. I’m steadfast in that commitment. We do our part; we are not running, regardless of what the feds do.”
Our first goal should be to prevent anything and anyone from crossing over and to have all asylum in that area shut down. Instead, we continue to accept asylum requests, now including from the cartel members involved in the shootout, some of whom are treated in our hospitals.
Sheriff Dannels confirmed to me the local media reports that four Sinaloa members requested asylum at the Douglas port of entry following the gun battle. While the status of those people is still unclear, just the fact that cartel members have the confidence that they have a shot at asylum is very disturbing.
But aren’t the Democrats just reinforcing this? Of course they believe they have a shot- they see that in our country, we prioritize these supposed “asylum seekers” above all else.
“You’ve got cartel members fleeing from their own fight because things are spiraling out of control, and we just say ‘credible fear, come right on in,’” said the 35-year veteran of law enforcement. “Where is the leadership? Our laws have been melted down by politics.”
