A sudden influx of Guatemalan families into Arizona has overwhelmed detention facilities there and forced the government to release hundreds of parents and children over the past several days, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said Tuesday...Large groups of 100 or more have been turning themselves in to agents and requesting humanitarian refuge.
We are seeing record numbers of family units coming across, said one Department of Homeland Security official, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss the trend. The department has not published border arrest totals for September, but the number of parents who arrived with children is expected to significantly exceed the 12,774 family members apprehended in August on the southern border....
U.S. agents have observed buses dropping off migrant families south of the border...The senior official estimated that Guatemalan families and children have accounted for 90 percent of those crossing...Its a very well-orchestrated smuggling venture, the senior official said...

the shelters that usually take the illegals after they are released are being overwhelmed and can't keep up with the demand for free bus tickets.
And, we've run out of ankle bracelets
We need to change immigration laws to allow bussing them 100 miles into Mexico and tossing them to the curb. Would put an end to much of this.
Need a conveyor belt to the border.
Build the Wall, already!
And garrison it with border guards authorized to use deadly force.
They need to disorient them, and the ‘release’ consists of opening the south gate right back into mexico.
What is so freaking hard about helping them onto buses and sending them back? Or marching them back across the border?
Soldiers should have been put on the border on Day One of the Trump Administration. My biggest fear is that one of these illegals are going to commit a truly heinous act, such as another mass shooting, or killing a LEO, and Trump can no longer blame Obama or angrily tweet that Congress needs to fund the wall. Trump supporters will start to see this, and will become demoralized to the point of staying home in 2020.
How about mass deportations instead?
Or at least get Sheriff Joe to tell ‘em how to do a tent city”.
buses to the front yard of the judge who ruled against detention? works for me.
buil the _ _ M F wall
Good thing POTUS never treated the wall as his top priority.
A bus cannot travel into Mexico without authorization.
When a bus is unloaded at the border, the illegals can walk around and come right back.
Build The Wall.
We need to just shoot then, when they place one foot on American soil; WE ARE BEING INVADED BY A HORDE OF SCUM!
What the HELL happened to the tent cities, PUT THEM BACK UP NOW!!!!
NO QUESTIONS THANK YOU!!!
What I DO know, is that there are now close to 40 MILLION stinking ILLEGAL ALIENS here now and breeding like rabbits. All of them need to be rounded up and at the least, sent off to some other nation; not even necessarily one from whence they came. I'd rather they'd be shot,but I know that that won't ever happen.
Rule One: never, ever give a woman authority over national security where women and children are involved. "But the famblies and the lil chilluns!"
We were told months ago that no humanitarian refugees were to be admitted or considered if they came from central america. Why are they not turned away? That was what we were promised.
Release they straight back over the border . Adios....
There should be no law(s) they compell us to keep any illegal entrants for any time , or in any manner , whatsoever. Instant deport. Men ,women & kids . Send the message . Zero tolerance .
DO NOT FALL FOR THIS CRAP ! F UM !
and screw the ACLU , publish THEIR home addresses....
