Border Patrol Deputy Chief: ‘We Are Being Overwhelmed’

This is why we need the wall!

Fox News is reporting:

“U.S. Border Patrol Deputy Chief Patrol Agent Roy Villareal said Monday that he’s never seen anything like what’s happening at the U.S.-Mexico border in his 30 years of service.

“The situation at the border is unprecedented,” he said on “Fox & Friends.” “We are being overwhelmed with migrants, principally family units and children, and then people that are from countries other than Mexico.”

Villareal said for the first time in the Border Patrol’s history, the majority of its arrests are “other-than-Mexican nationals.”

He said an “entire border enforcement system” is needed on the ground, although there is “no singular solution” to the issues there.

“[We need] a border infrastructure, roads that provide access to the border, technology, ground sensors, night vision cameras, drones and then of course wall or fencing to secure the border,” he said.

Villareal attested to his decades of service that walls or fencing do work in securing borders.

“As soon as we put in infrastructure and fencing, add technology and agents, it has a dramatic impact on that flow of illicit migrants, illicit narcotics and it brings control to the border,” he said.”

USA Today reported:

Hundreds of migrants and their children seeking to enter the U.S. from Mexico are arriving with illnesses, forcing U.S. Customs and Border Protection to seek additional medical assistance and boost medical screenings, the agency disclosed Monday.

Between Dec. 22 and Sunday, the agency reported 451 cases referred to doctors or other providers, including 259 children. Among the children, half of the cases involved kids under the age of 5.

The ill migrants have been arriving with all kinds of ailments, many with flu or pneumonia that can be particularly pervasive and dangerous this time of year. Seventeen migrants have been hospitalized, including six children, according to the agency..

“The U.S. Border Patrol is doing everything in its power to handle this crisis,” said Commissioner Kevin K. McAleenan in a statement. But he added, “The status quo is not acceptable” given the wave of immigrants arriving.

Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen said in a statement last week that the Border Patrol has detailed 139,817 migrants on the Southwest border in the past two months. That compares to 74,946 for the same period last year. These include 68,510 family members and 13,981 unaccompanied children.

Making matters worse, McAleenan said central American refugees are now arriving directly by bus, not just by foot, and that a “robust smuggling cycle continues.”

The Border Patrol has been receiving assistance from the Coast Guard, which has sent medical teams to the border in the Yuma and Tucson, Arizona, and Rio Grande Valley sectors of the border. The Public Health Service also said it will deploy teams to help.”
