Mexicans Protest Caravan

Mexicans in Tijuana continue to protest the arrival of caravan migrants in their city. One stated,  “They entered the country violently, they are demanding services.  .  .  . The United States already said they can’t come, so what’s going to happen?” A large number anti-caravan protesters marched through the streets chanting, “Out of Tijuana” and “Mexico has its own problems.” Many sang the Mexican national anthem.   The Guardian, a left-wing U.K. newspaper, labeled the protesters "racists," even though they and the caravan people are of the same racial background.    Read more at theguardian.com

Trump Targets Visa Overstayers

According to some studies a majority of illegal aliens coming to the U.S. and settling here are not illegal border crossers. They are foreigners who come on legal short term visa who decide to remain after their visas expire.  The Trump Administration is proposing to crack down on this source of illegal immigration. Among steps under consideration are sanctions against countries with high rates of visa overstays and requiring that short-term visa holders post an "admission bond" when they enter the U.S.--an amount they would get back when they leave.  In reference to visa overstaying President Trump stated, "We have laws that need to be followed to keep Americans safe and to protect the integrity of a system where, right now, there are millions of people who are waiting in line to come to America to seek the American Dream."

Smugglers Give Discount for Children

The Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) interviewed Monica Maple, an investigator for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), for one of its reports.  The report stated:  "Mapel said human smugglers or brokers in home countries cut package deals where a parent provides a child (especially if parents have more than one) to a child-less migrant for a fee or an in-kind reduction in the real parent's own smuggling fee. Such packages can reach $7,000 for transportation, food, doctored birth certificates, and the child. 'If you have children to spare during your trip to the U.S., your trip is not as expensive,' she explained. "The child, real parent, unrelated adult client, and smuggler often make the trip together. Only at the border is the child and bogus birth certificate given over to the paying migrant, who is expected to return the child days or weeks later once everyone is inside the United States." Thanks to a loophole in U.S. law, migrants know that bringing children with them increases the likelihood that they will be able to stay in the U.S. after making asylum claims.  Read more at cis.org

In response to questioning by Sen. Dan Coates (R-IN), IRS Commissioner John Koskinen admitted that the IRS will not take any action against illegal aliens who file tax returns with fraudulent Social Security numbers. Coates stated, "What we learned is that . . . the IRS continues to process tax returns with false W-2 information and issue refunds as if they were routine tax returns . . . . We also learned the IRS ignores notifications from the Social Security Administration that a name does not match a Social Security number. . . ."
