The massive exodus of illegals crossing over into Texas and other border states is becoming more than local communities can handle.
This influx of illegal immigration is causing emergency shelters, areas typically designated for use during catastrophes, to overflow, leaving local government scratching their heads as to what to do with immigrants who have no place to go and canâ€™t be deported back to their home country.
Many in the government and in the conservative scene believe that this whole mess is not simply the result of bad policy, but an orchestrated plot by President Obama to create a crisis he can use to justify pushing immigration reform through with an executive order.
Recently, a Border Patrol agent broke a gag order and spoke with CNN about the reality of the conditions at the border.
During the interview, Agent Hector Garcia stated that the illegal immigration is the work of drug cartels, and that the U.S. is essentially giving illegals a â€œfree pass.â€
Border Patrol agent Hector Garcia on Thursday accused the Obama administration of â€œaiding, abetting and facilitating the smuggling of illegal aliens across the border.â€
In an interview with CNN, Garza said the current influx of illegal immigrants is â€œorganizedâ€ and â€œorchestratedâ€ by the drug cartels. Additionally, he said the federal government is giving illegal immigrants a â€œfree pass.â€ He said the feds are using the equivalent of the honor system in asking illegal immigrants to later report to an immigration hearing â€” even though the majority of them will never do so.
With resources being diverted to process illegals, the crisis then allows drug cartels to sneak illegal drugs and weapons across the U.S. border undetected, he explained.
Garza later argued that U.S. taxpayers are going to be on the hook to provide for the immigrant families.
â€œHow do you expect a mother from Honduras that is crossing the country with 3 to 5 children, and theyâ€™re all young-aged children, how do you expect for that mother who comes to this country to actually begin working?â€ he asked.
He continued: â€œThis illegal alien who comes to this country with 3 to 5 kids is gonna depend on our welfare system, on government assistance. And you know what? That is costing the taxpayer a lot of money.â€
