Oops, this isn’t going to help those wanting to give DACA recipients a break to stay here.
On the eve of President Trump’s first State of the Union address, the San Diego Border Patrol arrested two DACA recipients on charges of human smuggling. The separate incidents involved a 22-year-old Riverside County man and a 20-year-old man whose residence was not disclosed.
San Diego sector Border Patrol Agent Eduardo Olmos, a spokesman, said: “We’re not allowed to disclose the names.”
He went on to say he couldn’t reveal where they are being held, but a news release on Monday said one of the men was being held in Department of Homeland Security custody for removal proceedings.
With several Democrat lawmakers planning to bring Dreamers to the State of the Union Address tonight, these arrests can’t be good news.
In a report on the Times of San Diego, they report:
One incident was about 8 a.m. Thursday, where Border Patrol agents arrested two undocumented immigrants and later saw two suspicious vehicles on Buckman Springs Road in the Campo area of East County, said the news release.
Agents followed one car — a blue Honda sedan — and conducted an immigration inspection at the Border Patrol immigration checkpoint, the agency said.
“Agents questioned the driver, a 22-year-old male Mexican national, who admitted that he was performing scouting duties for a smuggling crew,” said a Border Patrol statement. “He also admitted that he was coordinating with another driver of a vehicle to relay information related to Border Patrol operations in the area and the status of the Border Patrol checkpoint to aid in illegal smuggling.”
The Border Patrol said its agents learned that the driver was a DACA recipient and that he had “successfully participated in alien smuggling on multiple occasions.”
A 25-year-old U.S. citizen later was arrested in connection with the smuggling case, the agency said.
In a second incident, last Wednesday, agents received a citizen’s tip about a suspected smuggling incident near Torrey Pines State Beach.
The vehicle involved was tracked to the side of Interstate 5 near Dairy Mart Road near the border about 12:10 p.m., where agents conducted an immigration check.
Agents found three men inside the vehicle — the driver (a 20-year-old DACA recipient), his 22-year-old cousin who is a Mexican national illegally residing in the United States, and a 21-year-old Mexican national illegally in the country, said the agency.
“Both the driver and his cousin admitted their involvement with human smuggling in the area,” said the agency. “The driver, a beneficiary of DACA which has since expired, is currently being held in federal custody.”
The U.S. Attorney’s Office in San Diego didn’t immediately respond to a request for details.
Olmos, the local Border Patrol spokesman, said the agency has issued releases like this in the past, specifying the status of the arrested such as B1 or B2 visas.
Well, this proves that we need to be careful who we allow to stay in our country. Just because you attach a warm and fuzzy term like Dreamer to a group of people DOES NOT mean they are all the sort we want to welcome here with open arms.
Will the Liberal MSM report on such an arrest? Doubtful. However, we can help spread the word by sharing this with all of our friends. Like President Trump always says, we want people to come here BUT people that love this country and its people.
It’s been reported that several Democrats plan to go to the State of the Union Address tonight with Dreamers in tow. One is 2020 Presidential Democrat hopeful Sen. Kamala Harris, who has announced she plans to bring an LA Dreamer to President Trump’s State of the Union Address tonight.
So, my fellow Deplorables, pop some popcorn, get a glass of your favorite beverage, and get ready for a GREAT State of the Union speech from President Trump. Then grab a barf-bag for the FIVE Democrat responses. #MAGA
