Texas Border Patrol Chief Begs For Help as Over 12,000 Illegals Caught in Last Three Weeks (tr)
Gateway Pundit ^ | October 21, 2018 | Kristinn Taylor

Thousands of illegal aliens are swarming the Texas border this month in advance of the migrant caravan marching through Mexico, prompting Chief Patrol Agent Manuel Padilla, Jr., the Customs and Border Patrol Sector Chief of the Rio Grande Valley, to beg for help dealing with the onslaught of illegal aliens, gang members and drug cartel smugglers. Just on Saturday over 700 illegal aliens were caught, with over 12,000 caught in the past three weeks. In addition, safe houses have been busted and drug smugglers intercepted by the overstretched CBP in the Rio Grande Valley.

16,000 “family units” were reported caught in the last month in the RGV sector by CBP. All these illegals take manpower and resources to detain, process, house, clothe, feed, and give medical treatment.

Padilla sent out several tweets this weekend with the message, “We need #personnel #technology #infrastructure“, in conjunction with video reports by on scene Fox News Channel reporter Griff Jenkins. “Another busy day with @GriffJenkins in #RGV South Texas. Over 12,700 illegal alien arrests in past 3 weeks. nearly 800 pounds of marijuana & almost 70 pounds of peyote just yesterday We need #personnel #technology #infrastructure #HonorFirst“…”Our #BorderPatrol Agents face challenges daily while focusing on our #BorderSecurity mission and our #HumanitarianEfforts #RGV South Texas is in need of #personnel #technology & #infrastructure for both mission sets #HonorFirst @GriffJenkins @FoxNews #DayInTheLife“

We needed the wall in 1988, but George H.W. Bush had other ideas.

Current caravan estimates are around 10,000........supposedly from Honduras.

However, a South American group is expected to hook up with a group of approximately 40,000 Mexicans in the next few days

They’ll reach the U.S. border near election week with well over 50k invaders total.


That’s a lot of Democrat votes ..... factoring in that they’ll all vote 4-5 times each.

Tens of thousands caught in a very short time, but somehow we are stuck at 11 million illegals. The government must have put the numbers in front of focus groups and found out that 12 million or more would outrage American citizens to take action - either violent or at least electoral, so it stays at 11 million like a broken clock that must never reach midnight.

How about 25,000 armed, private citizens? The Federal Government doesn’t seem to want to do anything.

I reported earlier seeing half of Costco shoppers mid day Saturday being Spanish only speaking new immigrnats/illegal aliens. One in five could speak English and they were all very focused on tight budgets and buying new sundries for new living quarters.

IMHO, the movement is 100k people min over a month and the ones in the press are only a diversion. They are already here and I’m not talking about illegal immigrants over the last year. These are all new with an agenda.

Why do people perpetuate using the “11 million” number that’s been recited for 30 years?

If there were to seriously happen, 50,000 people massing to mob the border, I doubt any voter will object to Trump closing the border, deploying troops to secure it, and demanding Congress immediately authorize funds for the wall. I wonder if Democrats realize what they’ve unleashed?

Yes, at least 30-60 million, probably more. Heck, you cannot go anywhere without being overwhelmed with Mexicans and others speaking their version of Spanish. I think the government recently recognized that the 11 million count had run its course and people have been recently referring to a report saying 22 million. Still too low an estimate.

I wonder how many homeless encampments and street bums are comprised of illegal alien invaders. Beggars everywhere, and low-lifes crapping on the streets and camping out on cardboard have to be the result of the alien hordes invading our country. Build the wall, kick out the illegals, and I think we’ll be able to solve the homeless problem.

Fox news reported today that a new study puts the number at 25M min, but more likely closer to 40 or 50M. Study was done by some college in the NE. Sorry that’s all I can remember.
