Yesterday The U.K. Daily Mail posted an article about what is happening at America’s southern border.
The article reports:
Ruthless Mexican cartels are exploiting Joe Biden‘s relaxed immigration stance to turn people trafficking into a billion-dollar racket ‘worth more than dope’, a DailyMail.com investigation can reveal.
The president tore up hardline Trump policies after taking office but denies sparking a crisis along the southern border where authorities are struggling to deal with a surge in migrant families and unaccompanied kids crossing illegally.
A slew of experts and well-placed law enforcement sources have told DailyMail.com, however, that notorious drug gangs including the Gulf Cartel and Los Zetas are seizing upon the reforms to ratchet up human trafficking operations.
As one source told us: ‘The cartels have realized that under Biden there is serious money to be made from people trafficking without any of the distribution issues you face with narcotics. People are the new dope.’
The article also notes:
Last week Republican lawmakers shared a shocking video that Jones (Jaeson Jones, a retired captain from the Texas Department of Public Safety) obtained of masked cartel smugglers ferrying a line of immigrants across the Rio Grande.
‘Remember that every Mexican citizen that you see crossing the river is worth 2,500 bucks. If they’re Venezuelan, Guatemalan or Honduran they paid $3,000.
‘If they’re Chinese they paid $5,000. If they’re Middle Eastern or Russian they paid $9,000. If you’re a higher value commodity they make sure you get over at a quieter spot.’
According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the number of migrant apprehensions reached 78,323 in January 2021 – double the amount from January 2020.

This is a man-made tragedy caused by the Biden administration’s refusal to admit any Trump administration policy was worthwhile. There are rumors currently circulating that the Trump administration policy of making refugees seeking asylum wait in their home countries will be reinstated. If that does not happen soon, Congress needs to act. This is an unnecessary humanitarian crisis. It needs to end quickly.
