Skip to comments.The US Immigration Debate Has Been Transformed At The Borders

A few weeks ago Helen Yovanna Mata, a 16-year-old Honduran girl, turned up at Corinto, a scruffy crossing on the border with Guatemala, with a backpack and a few papers. Two of the papers were death threats scribbled in scratchy ballpoint, another was a school document validating her story.
One of the notes said: "Were not kidding. You now have seven days [to leave]. We dont want to hurt you, but you have to believe us. Death." It was signed "M18", the name of a violent Central American street gang. Honduran officials let her through to Guatemala, her first stop on an arduous journey north to the United States. No one knows if she got there.
Rising numbers of children are following in Helens footsteps. Corinto is abuzz with wiry, menacing men carrying dirty wads of banknotes who arrange for coyotillos--local kids turned people-smugglers--to lead migrants without passports through the subtropical hills into Guatemala.
Since early this year, the vast majority of those migrants have been youngsters themselves, sometimes travelling alone, sometimes accompanied by their mothers.
At night, when the coyotillos get to work, hordes of them walk up the back lanes, mothers cradling babies in arms, teenage girls with pink backpacks. They travel in such numbers that the village dogs howl.
Over 1,300 miles (2,090km) north of Corinto, on the Texan side of the Rio Grande, a lone man is fishing. The Mexican side, less than 100 yards away, is more festive: dozens of children are splashing in the shallow water and a party barge floats by, blaring music.
A couple of US Border Patrol agents assess the scene. They spot several jet skis on the Mexican side as belonging to people-smugglers. And they point to a small group standing under a tree. "Black clothing in the summer?" says

Debate? There is nothing to debate but how much ammo we have to wrestle away the control of the border from illegals and narco terrorists in bed with democrates.
Put up billboards with directions to the legal entrance.
And, shoot and kill every one that crosses illegally.
I wonder how many of these young people have the same MS-13 threats and corroborating school “documents”.
I guess we see who won the bid to bring tens of thousands of kids in through the southern US border. This administration appears to be in cahoots with MS-13!
Its clear that both wings of the uniparty are complicit. Really then, the choice is not so much what to do about this specific issue, but what the terms of the divorce should be.
Its clear that both wings of the uniparty are complicit.
And that’s why we must support the GOPe’s RINO candidates!
And both parties condone this by working to give amnesty.

“Please excuse Juan Epstein from today’s test. I have a head ache. Signed Epstein’s Mother.”

Our new immigration policy?
People used to present a passport and a visa at our border.
Now - they present scribbled death threats from street gangs and a note from their school principal!
Yep, and let conservative homeschool the kids getting adopted. tired of Democrates owning the issue only if it is done in a pro Democrat rape and loot rhetoric.
But the homeschooled German kids were sent back to Dachau and Elian to Cuba reindoctrination... Let us remember that language.
I couldn’t care less if all the children in these countries are murdered.
Where is the United Nations in all if this?
This is all part if the soros/demorat plan to ruin this country and no one has the guts to stop it.
Brewer, Perry and Martinez should militarize the borders.
Mexifornia is a list cause.
Secure our country from the invading horde.
Elian Gonzalez is returned to Cuba.
