    Border Patrol arrests 376 who dug under barrier in Arizona

    THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
    Jan 18th 2019 7:25PM

    SAN LUIS, Ariz. (AP) A group of 376 Central Americans was arrested in southwest Arizona, the vast majority of them families who dug short, shallow holes under a barrier to cross the border, authorities said Friday.

    The group dug under a steel barrier in seven spots about 10 miles (16 kilometers) east of a border crossing in San Luis and made no effort to elude immigration agents. They included 176 children.

    The unusually large group was almost entirely from Guatemala. They were taken to Yuma after entering the country Monday.

    The area became a major corridor for illegal crossings in the mid-2000s, prompting the Bush administration to weld steel plates to a barrier made of steel bollards that had been designed to stop people in vehicles, not on foot, Border Patrol spokesman Jose Garibay said. In those spots, there is no concrete footing to prevent digging.

    The group used multiple holes in an apparent effort to get everyone across the border quickly, Garibay said.

    Customs and Border Protection released photos and video of a long line of migrants standing patiently on a desert road's dirt shoulder after they were stopped.

    On. Jan. 9, the Border Patrol arrested a group of 247 people, mostly from Central America, who turned themselves in to agents in a highly remote part of New Mexico. The agency said many needed medical care.

    Large numbers of Guatemalan families and unaccompanied children are surrendering to immigration agents in Antelope Wells, New Mexico, where 7-year-old Jakelin Caal and her father were found Dec. 6 with 161 others.

    Caal started vomiting on the bus ride to the nearest Border Patrol station 94 miles (150 kilometers) away and had stopped breathing by the time she arrived. She died at a hospital in El Paso, Texas.

    The southwest Arizona desert is less remote but arrests have also sharply increased after years of relative quiet. The Border Patrol's Yuma sector made 7,857 arrests in October and November, more than double the same period a year earlier.

    Despite a surge in asylum-seeking families from Central America in recent months, border arrests remain low by historical standards
    .

    The Border Patrol made 396,579 arrests on the Mexican border in the 2018 fiscal year, up 30 percent from a 46-year low during the same period a year earlier but still well below a high of more than 1.6 million in 2000.

    If you are basing that statement on “illegal entry” then I would agree with you; however that does not preclude them from also being asylum seekers. Criminals who intend to continue a criminal enterprise, are smuggling drugs, etc. do not turn themselves over to and/or walk into into border patrol officers’ custody—that is the first step of ensuring you get to see asylum personnel in an effort to establish a “credible fear.”

    As a result of events occurring before 1 January 1951 and owing to well-founded fear of being persecuted for reasons of race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group or political opinion, is outside the country of his nationality and is unable or, owing to such fear, is unwilling to avail himself of the protection of that country; or who, not having a nationality and being outside the country of his former habitual residence as a result of such events, is unable or, owing to such fear, is unwilling to return to it.
    For over a century, the residents in these mountainous towns have frequently chosen the first option, boosting Guatemala’s position in the global coffee markets. But in recent years, a crisis in the sector has deepened—thanks to low global coffee prices, booming production in countries such as Honduras and Vietnam, and recurring coffee plagues. As the industry struggles to stabilize, rural Guatemalans in the highlands can no longer rely on coffee as a secure income source. Increasingly, they are choosing to leave for the United States.

    Here is the real reason that Democrats have shifted their position of optics when talking about what they believe are Hispanic VOTERS concerns.

    Pew Research Center.


    “We project that the 2020 election will mark the first time that Hispanics will be the largest racial or ethnic minority group in the electorate, accounting for just over 13 percent of eligible voters – slightly more than blacks. This change reflects the gradual but continuous growth in the Hispanic share of eligible voters, up from 9 percent in the 2008 presidential election and 7 percent in the 2000 election,” said Pew. In 2020, there are expected to be 32 million Hispanic voters and 30 million blacks.
    A graphic accompanying the Pew analysis of Census data indicated that 10 percent of the non-white vote will be immigrants.
    “Taken together, this strong growth among minority populations means that a third of eligible voters will be non-white in 2020, up from about a quarter in 2000. This increase is at least partially linked to immigration and naturalization patterns: One-in-ten eligible voters in the 2020 election will have been born outside the U.S., the highest share since at least 1970,” said Pew.
    The impact should be helpful to Democrats, according to the survey giant. It noted, “In 2016, non-white voters were more likely to back Democrat Hillary Clinton, while white voters were more likely to back Republican Donald Trump.”
