Border Patrol Concerned Migrants might Rush U.S. Border While Drug Cartels Find New Routes by Sara A Carter

Officials said Tuesday’s court ruling against Trump’s asylum executive order is making things much more difficult for law enforcement.

Former acting ICE director Tom Homan said his agency is completely overwhelmed and needs the military’s help.

Border Patrol agents and other law enforcement officials fear the growing number of migrants amassing along the United States border in Tijuana, Mexico will try to rush the U.S. port of entry as the situation has been exacerbated in recent days by the increased conflict between the migrants and locals, former and current U.S. law enforcement officials said.

The concern is two-fold, said law enforcement officials, who noted that the decision Tuesday by U.S. District Judge Jon S. Tigar of San Francisco to temporarily block the Trump administration from denying asylum to migrants who crossed the southern border illegally is prolonging an already broken immigration system. Tigar said the president violated a “clear command” from Congress to allow them to apply, but U.S. Custom’s and Border Protection agents say it will only make the situation worse.

They, too, will disappear after they’re released,” said a U.S. law enforcement official working along the border, who asked for anonymity because they were not authorized to speak. “So pretty much just show up with a child, and claim and get cut loose–regardless of previous immigration history or criminal history. (The) only thing that stops a person with a child is aggravated criminal felony.”

President Donald Trump told reporters Tuesday afternoon, “it’s a disgrace what happened in the 9th Circuit, we’ll win this case in the Supreme Court.”

Over recent days, hundreds of Tijuana residents gathered to protest the roughly 4,000 migrants, mainly from Central American countries. The increased tensions have raised concerns among U.S. law enforcement officials that the migrants may try to rush the border, like they did when they crossed the Guatemala and Mexican border.  The Tijuana demonstrators shouted at the migrants, “No illegals” and “No to the invasion.”
