#Shorts: Who Uses “La Bestia” and Where Does it Go? [Video]

View full video: https://cis.org/Video/Mexicos-Death-Train-Contributing-Biden-Border-CrisisA new video from the Center for Immigration Studies highlights the role the Mexican cargo train system, “La Bestia”, plays in transporting migrants from deep in Mexico to the U.S. southern border. Tens of thousands of mostly Central Americans and Venezuelans travel on the “death train”, getting a free ride north and avoiding Mexico’s temporary visa requirement.Todd Bensman, the Center’s senior national security fellow, narrates his video that starts with the migrants jumping the trains in Monterrey, Mexico, 250 miles from the U.S. border. Past presidents, like President Obama, realized that U.S. border numbers are fueled in part by the large number of migrants riding “The Beast” and successfully worked to have the Mexican government crack down on the dangerous practice. President Biden met with the president of Mexico recently, but there was no public mention of stopping this popular illegal path to the U.S. border.

[CLIP] Todd Bensman on Asylum Fraud, Ant Operations, and the Migrant Advocacy Industrial Complex [Video]

“The key to border security in this country is the way our asylum law is written and used and abused on a massive scale. It’s set up so that regular economic migrants who just want to work can use this to get past Border Patrol, to bypass congressional statutes that require their deportation. And there are NGOs there – nongovernmental organizations and American lawyers – who are down there all day long, teaching them what to say, what not to say, so that they can pass the initial screening that gets them into the country to stay forever.” – Todd Bensman🎬 WATCH FULL on EpochTV: https://ept.ms/Y1203ToddBensman 🔵 Enjoy Up To 50% Off 👉 https://ept.ms/3nuhRk0 🔵 Sign up for the American Thought Leaders newsletter to stay up-to-date on new episodes, releases, and events 👉 https://ept.ms/ATLnewsletter – – -Credits:shutterstock Images: https://shutr.bz/2u8Zdp8Music: Audioblocks.com, epidemicsound.comStock Video: Videoblocks.com————————————————-© All Rights Reserved.

#Shorts: Biden’s Perversion of Immigration Policy [Video]

Read the Report: https://cis.org/Bensman/Legalizing-Border-Crossing-All-Next-Stage-Bidens-Migration-CrisisWashington, D.C. (November 21, 2022) – Out of the sight of news drone cameras, invisible to the American public, and absent from the border apprehension statistics, a new, legally questionable, system of providing immigrants entry to the United States has been rapidly expanding. A new Center report, with accompanying video, describes how the Biden administration, under the authority of “humanitarian or significant public benefit parole”, is admitting “legally” those who had intended to cross illegally, with the help of the Mexican government and non-profit migrant advocate volunteers. Immigration parole is a very limited authority allowing the president to admit aliens who have no visa or other permission to enter. The Biden administration has been massively abusing it to run what amounts to an alternative immigration program.But up to now, the abuse of parole has been confined to people who have already illegally crossed the border. Under this new initiative, the Department of Homeland Security pre-approves applicants for humanitarian parole while they are still in Mexico, and then Mexico escorts them daily to hand-offs at ports of entry to the Americans who admit them sight unseen into the interior. Beneficiaries are granted work authorization and the right to apply for asylum. Todd Bensman, the Center’s senior national security fellow and author of the report, said, “Word of this new pathway to the United States has spread quickly, and thousands are swamping Mexican shelters. During my field research, I had access to the Mexican side of the operation in both Tijuana and Mexicali where Mexican officials enter the selected immigrant into the CBP-ONE data portal so the Americans can pre-approve them for hand-off at the border crossing – Mexican immigration buses pick up the migrants and deliver them to the Americans. Fraud and corruption are already prevalent.” This is a work-around to evade court-ordered expulsion policies and appears to be funneling immigrants into the United States through ports of entry from the Pacific Coast to the Gulf of Mexico and has operations well south of the American border. “The Biden administration’s perversion of immigration parole and disregard for decades of congressional intent has reached a new low in cynically laundering the status of would be illegal aliens so they won’t be counted as border apprehensions,” said George Fishman, the Center’s senior legal fellow. “This degradation of the rule of law can be controlled by either a federal court enjoining the widespread abuse of the parole power or Congress defunding the mischief.”
