UN Officials Escort Migrants across the Border into US

The Federalist website is reporting that, beginning with Joe Biden’s first days in office, persons wearing United Nations garb have been seen escorting migrants from Mexico across the border into the United States. As evidence, the website links to a video taken by the Daily Mail newspaper, showing migrants being assisted into Brownsville, Texas, by persons wearing the blue vests common to the UN.

The migrants concerned had been previously ordered under President Trump’s Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) to “remain in Mexico” while their applications for asylum in the U.S. were being considered. The new president abolished MPP as one of his first official acts, opening the door to thousands.

KVEO-TV, serving the Rio Grande Valley in Texas, confirmed the UN involvement on their website, explaining that the UN employees were “sorting those who have lived on the camp the longest to be among the first to cross.”

In addition, the Reuters news service also confirmed the UN connection in a report stating that the migrants are coming from a large, 700-bed camp in Matamoros, across the border from Brownsville. According to Reuters, their transfer into the United States is being managed by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.

At least 28,000 asylum seekers, most of them from Cuba, Honduras, and Guatemala, were sent back to Mexico under the MPP. Now Joe Biden is welcoming them in, no doubt for good.
