Congresswoman Veronica Escobar found a loophole in the law and she’s exploiting it as her personal protest against immigration laws by sending staff members into Mexico to physically bring illegal immigrants into the US.
Immigrants are trying to use the asylum system to get into the U.S. but under President Donald Trump’s new “remain in Mexico” policy, as soon as they get a court date, they’re sent back to Mexico to wait. Escobar discovered a twist in the law that says if the individual cannot understand Spanish, they get to stay in the United States.
Escobar’s staff members are obviously breaking the law, intentionally going into Juárez, Mexico to locate asylum seekers who have been sent back to Mexico and actually coaching them to pretend they cannot speak Spanish.
On top of that, Escobar is then interviewing these illegal immigrants to try and show that Border Patrol is turning away people who should stay. The radical progressives also tell these illegal immigrants to fake health issues.
For example, an Escobar aide and a Catholic diocese official escorted one male migrant over the international bridge in June and asked the border patrol to allow entry into the U.S. because they falsely claimed he had “cognitive disabilities.”
After the 17-year-old boy’s case was taken over by the Border Patrol, an agent found an officially signed and sealed Constituent Information and Privacy Release Form in his file. According to two border patrol officials, “the paper would have to have been put in his file while he was interviewed in Mexico and was not supposed to have been left there because it would reveal to the Border Patrol that a member of Congress or their staff was meeting with migrants in Mexico.”
He was immediately returned to Mexico because “the medical condition was not diagnosed by a medical professional but by an aide of the congresswoman.”

Recently Corey Booker has also been receiving heat for bringing illegal immigrants across the border. This case seems to be more of the same and an investigation into more democrats and more border crossings may show that this is an all too common problem.
Escobar is trying to do two things with these tactics. First, she is trying to reverse a section of U.S law that has already been voted on and signed. If she can show that the law “isn’t working” she can find a way to replace it. The second objective is to demonize border patrol and claim that they can’t do their jobs or are being biased against certain people. Either way this just goes to show that democrats do not care for American citizens, they want to put illegal immigrants first.
