FBI Confirms Drug Cartels Crossing the Border

"Director Wray Installation Ceremony" by Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is marked with CC PDM 1.0

During a hearing with the House Judiciary Committee on Friday, FBI Director Christopher Wray revealed that drug cartel operations are overflowing northbound across the US-Mexico border. This comes amid an ongoing border crisis that has seen a historic number of illegals come into the US in recent months.

According to NBC News, drug cartels are now invading immigrant shelters south of the border; this is where some asylum seekers await hearing dates in American immigration courts while the drug cartel issue is becoming more obvious.

Refugee activist Felicia Rangel-Samponaro told the news that gang members and traffickers came into the camp then yank someone away. You can hear the person yelling for assistance. It’s reasonable that everybody else stands about and observes since nobody wants to be killed.

According to Rangel-Samponaro, at least six individuals were stolen from the camp two weeks earlier.

Traffickers are giving disinformation to many immigrants at the crossing; they’re enticing immigrants with impossible promises that President Joe Biden will lift border restrictions, according to the network. The Biden administration appears to be adding to the problem by increasing the human bottleneck at the border.

Kamala Harris Fails To Visit The Border

At a news appearance in Guatemala earlier this week, Vice President Kamala Harris tried to clear up some of the misinformation by advising would-be migrants not to make the perilous journey. However, American leftists reacted angrily to the comment, believing that the Biden administration should implement more lenient immigration laws rather than tighter ones.

As Wray pointed out, increased organized crime at the border puts immigrants in danger. According to Fox News, human trafficking activities have increased all along the border, putting undocumented immigrants, genuine refugees, and, in particular, juvenile immigrants in peril.

Organized crime, though, may not be the only border issue that the Biden administration is grappling with. According to the United States Customs and Border Protection, more illegal aliens attempting to enter the United States were detained in May than any other month since the formation of the Department of Homeland Security.

CBP detected 180,034 people crossing the Mexican Border in May 2021. The majority of these encounters continue to be with single adults.

Harris didn’t respond well to a harsh line of questioning from a Latin American news reporter. When asked when she intended to travel to the US-Mexico border to experience Biden’s border issue personally, Vice President Kamala Harris became visibly irritated during a Thursday interview with Spanish media.

The encounter, which took place during an interview with Univision anchor Ilia Calderón, came after a tumultuous week for Harris; she suffered throughout her trip around Central America.
