Southern border will see more illegal entries with lifting of Title 42

Posted 5 April 2022 at 9:02 am


This week in the news, it appears Biden is ready to revoke Title 42 as soon as May 2022. Title 42 permits the government to expel people who have illegally entered our nation and have been in a country where a communicable disease was present. Obviously most of us would agree that this would be Covid.

If this happens, the previous surges at the southern border are going to look microscopic in comparison to the foreseen deluge. The Chief of Border Patrol has predicted an astounding 8,000 apprehensions daily (cited in exclusive CNN interview with Brianna Keilar).

This is unconscionable and makes no sense.

Let’s take a look at what is happening now, and you will see the calamity that lies ahead for America.

Some new buzz words have emerged, surrounding the current immigration crisis. “Crime tourism” is one. South American Theft Gangs (SATGs) are criminal endeavors that train burglars in South America. They then come into the US and merge with other like cells to rob the wealthy. They are well versed in camouflaging themselves and often rent expensive vehicles as they peruse neighborhoods and observe the homeowners’ patterns. They also know most security systems are located on the ground floor so the portal is frequently the second floor. It is reported a single heist can produce losses of between $20,000 and $100,000.

One SATG in the DC suburbs of Northern Virginia was responsible for 100 burglaries in Fairfax and Montgomery Counties. Total valued at over $3,000,000.

In San Diego County the SATGs are responsible for more than 60 robberies in less than 8 months. Reports have indicated activity in the SF Bay Area, Cleveland, Indianapolis and the Detroit suburb of Grosse Pointe.

The Electronic System for Travel Authorization has paved the way for easy entry for the SATGs. This system permits citizens in 40 countries to travel here without a visa and stay for up to 90 days. The cost is only $20  and the plan relieves those who qualify from scrutiny by immigration authorities. The platform added Chile to the program in 2014 and police state that’s when SATGs started to surge.

There has been some speculation that  some areas with sanctuary city status, low-bail, no bail are ideal targets, as the criminals can simply skip the country later on. Some get fake IDs, indicating they’re from Puerto Rico. In this way their crime spree continues.

When you combine the SATGs and the potential abandonment of Title 42, it is more than likely the immigration crisis will deepen in intensity.
