Democrats Cause Massive Increase in Desert and Drug Deaths

 

Don’t take my word for it. Listen to CNN and CBS. CNN reports that border deaths tripled over last year. CBS reports a nightmare increase in lethal drugs, and overdoses, directly connected to the Democrats controlling immigration policy. AND. Do not believe a word of supposed opposition spewed by the RepubliCANT party of Lyin’ Ryan, the Bush clan, California Republican House Minority “Leader” McCarthy, and McConnell. They all colluded in subverting President Trump’s attempt to keep the 2016 Republican Party’s promises and the much older post 9/11 legislative promise to build a wall. Remember that this year and next and strictly hold it against them and every candidate who does not vocally reject them. The death toll was entirely foreseeable. Everybody knows.

CNN’s Rosa Flores reports on the massive surge in border-crossing deaths. Understand, these are mostly horrible deaths of dehydration and heatstroke, with a few drowning deaths in canals. Special techniques have been developed to get fingerprints from sun-baked and bloated corpses. We do not get those disturbing details from CNN, but the bare facts are terrible in themselves.

CBS Evening News With Norah O Donnell CBS June 10, 2021, 3:12 a.m. – 3:43 a.m. PDT is archived at Archive.org. CBS reporter Janet Shamlian reported on the massive surge in deadly drugs over the U.S.-Mexico border. The cartels own the entire trans-border illegal logistics system. Whether people, drugs, or anything else, the cartels ruthlessly enforce control. So, the massive surge in opioids, including fentanyl is entirely foreseeable, and not a real concern to either the Democrats or the RepubliCAN’Ts, mouth movements or keystrokes notwithstanding.

We want to turn now to a flood of drugs coming into this country at the U.S.-Mexico border. Record amounts of opioids, and along with them, deadly consequences. CBS’ Janet Shamlian reports tonight from El Paso, Texas.
Reporter: Along the Mexico border, drug cartels are seizing opportunity. We are seeing that the cartels are exploiting our current influx of unaccompanied children, as well as our influx of single adults. And they’re bringing hard drugs.
Reporter: Border Patrol Agent Joel Freeland says U.S. manpower focused on human smuggling is enabling traffickers to move staggering amounts of drugs, including 59 pounds of highly lethal fentanyl seized by Texas troopers the past six months. If that almost 60 pounds of fentanyl reached the streets and not been stopped what could have been the result?
Agent: The result is mass casualty.
Reporter: In a year, fentanyl seizures have jumped 800% in Texas.
The drugs coming across the border here are fueling an unprecedented epidemic across the country, the toll of which can be counted in the skyrocketing number of overdose deaths. Among them: 20-year-old Jacob del Hierro of Colorado.
del Hierro’s father: I wake up most days in a state of shock. I cannot believe that I lost a child.
Reporter: Jacob is among the more than 88,000 Americans who died from overdoses in the 12 months ending October 2020, up 10,000 from the same period a year before. [This was a COVID-19 plandemic effect.]
del Hierro’s father: It will live with me for the rest of my life. My wife had to watch as I screamed and begged for my son to breathe.
Reporter: BP agent Jerry Galvian knows heartbreak like that often starts here [at the border].
Agent: They cut into [the border barrier] and set it up beforehand so they know where they’re going to be coming on through.
Reporter: As agents say, the cartels use a flood of migrants to move a river of drugs. Janet Shamlian, CBS News, El Paso.

These deaths were all perfectly predictable, the known consequences of the neo-Marxist fundamental campaign to fundamentally transform America. The RepubliCAN’TS are fully complicit. Lyin’ Ryan and McConnell colluded with their good friends the Democrats from November 2016 to subvert the expressed will of the American people and to prevent fulfillment of border security promises made right after 9/11. The sun-blasted bodies are just eggs fried for the elite’s oligarch omelet.

President Trump named the threat of cartel coyotes and the “blue check” gang howled derision about Orange Man Bad talking about little wild dogs. No, they were not just ignorant. Everybody knew.

President Trump told the hard truth that human traffickers bring children across the US-Mexico border without their parents. These children, like the women, are vulnerable to rape and sale into sex slavery, and yet some women rent their children near the border as a dodge to keep adults from being easily returned by the Border Patrol. Everyone in the American Southwest and Mexico knows the men who actually smuggle humans across the border are called “coyotes.” The pronunciation is different depending on your native tongue, but the word is the same. The term has never been a good one.

See the New York Times recognized that in a 2018 story on illegal immigration. See their 2009 story about coyotes and pollos (chickens). See the 2014 NBC News story about children being among the dead illegal immigrants as the south Texas heat created a “death valley.”

“We have recovered 37 bodies this year,” [Brooks County Chief Deputy Benny] Martinez told NBC Nightly News. “And it’s fair to say every one we recover, we are missing five or 10. There’s a lot of bodies out there.”

Last year, Border Patrol documented 445 deaths of migrants coming to the United States — the third-highest number since 1998. The National Foundation for American Policy estimates an immigrant trying to sneak into the country today is eight times more likely to die than one a decade ago.

Even more troubling, the number of children — especially those traveling without their parents — is surging. Law enforcement officers say more of them are meeting tragic ends as they confront dangerous conditions on rough, shadeless terrain during their 1,000-mile journey.

Vice News reported “2020 is set to become Mexico’s deadliest year on record. Despite hopes that the COVID-19 pandemic would slow down violent crime, it’s had the opposite effect.” [Video involves graphic content.] Indeed, part of Fraudci’s plandemic was large-scale unemployment and underemployment, concentrated on lower-wage earners. This predictably causes a surge in drug and alcohol abuse, driving up overdose deaths, whether accidental or suicide.  In addition, cartels reportedly recruited unemployed Americans as drug smugglers with native-born American papers and habits.

I’ll leave you with two songs: Guy Clark’s “El Coyote” and, of course, a song by Leonard Cohen. Guy Clark wrote and recorded “El Coyote” in 2011, based on a true crime story from south Texas, where 18 illegal immigrants were left to die by a truck driver.

The sealed trailer that transported at least 74 illegal immigrants in May 2003 was described by prosecutors at one time as a “rolling chamber of death.” Passengers clawed holes in the walls and punched out tail lights to try to get enough air to survive as the temperature rose and the air thinned.

The victims — from Mexico, Honduras, El Salvador and the Dominican Republic — died of asphyxiation, hyperthermia and dehydration. They included a 5-year-old boy and four teenagers.

    The ends (legions of new, government-dependent, democrat voters; legions of cheap labor) justify the means, right?

    So easy to fix.

    Send 200 flights per day to Central America to bring those yearning to breathe free in the land of white privilege. Then noone from Central America will have to make the treacherous journey and the cartels won’t benefit.

    Send buses to Mexican border towns to bring anyone there across.

    Allocate trillions of dollars for resettlement. It’s only money. And we’re talking about people’s lives.

    As for the drugs, just legalize them. 

    I’m surprised AOC hasn’t thought of this. She seems so smart and compassionate.

    At this point, the southern border is a crossing point for illegal aliens from around the world, because it is the least secured.

    Of course not; it’s just collateral damage.  They don’t want to lose their focus on “the big picture”; that is, the imposition of a one-party system that will rule forever.

    The popular media tends to show only migrants who have already been collected by immigration authorities and deposited in U.S. government facilities. The media rarely if ever shows the reality of actual illegal crossing, especially the long treks on foot though inhospitable wilderness with little or no food or water, with the migrants often abandoned by the coyotes without maps or resources.

    That, and sustaining long term low wages to subsidize the political class/elite’s lifestyle. Can’t have your yard crew, your construction workers, your favorite restaurant’s staff, your coffee barista, hotel staff, . . . ,  getting the real wage that would be paid if only legal American residents were available for hire. That is the real issue “suburban women” had with President Trump. He threatened their comfortable lifestyle, built on a labor system propped up by a combination of a corrupt immigration system and a large set of social welfare programs (food stamps for starters). This is why Lyin’ Ryan and McConnell colluded with the Democrats from November 2016 onward to prevent fulfillment of basic border control promises.

    This needs to be shoved into Democrat’s faces every time they bring up that America is a horrible, racist hellhole. People are literally risking their lives, and dying, to get here. Why would they do that if it’s so horrible?

    Ahhh. American colonialism/neo-colonialism, corporate exploitation caused the economic, political, social conditions from which people are fleeing. That’s why. And we owe them entry as repayment for our ill-gotten gains at their expense. That is how this game goes.

    You can even throw that back at them. Moving is difficult. If America is a crappy place, and Mexico is a crappy place, and they can only improve one, wouldn’t they just stay where they are and work on improving their homeland? Improve your home, or pack up, move, then try to improve your new home. One of those options is much easier.

    Like all leftist arguments, it is completely illogical.

    Ahhh. That is what “climate change” is really all about: global reparations from America to every second and third world country. Pay back in the name of saving the planet.

    The idea that Mexico and Guatemala, to say nothing of Honduras or El Salvador, which Harris didn’t visit because of rampant corruption in those governments, are partners we can work with on border issues is a joke. That’s why former President Trump simply issued an ultimatum to López Obrador in June 2019: help us secure the border or face heavy tariffs on all imports to the U.S. That got Mexico’s attention, and illegal immigration plummeted.

    But please, Harris, tell us more about how you’re going to address the “root causes” of illegal immigration by getting Microsoft to help Guatemalan farmers with digital banking.

    The truth is, the border crisis could be fixed overnight. All the Biden administration has to do is stop letting people into the country. Turn them back at the border, and tell them they’ll have to wait in Mexico for the outcome of their asylum hearing. It won’t take long for word to get back to the sending communities that the trip isn’t worth it.

    What, you mean do the same thing Trump did?

    But that would be racist!

    Ahhh, but when Dims do the same things as Republicans, it’s not racist.

    The Chinese must be in charge, not even Democrats are this dumb.  Maybe we should issue a blanket pardon to the Biden kid so Dady might come to grips with the Chinese.  It’s probably all he has time to focus on.  So once his kid’s protected he can complete his retirement.

    If Mexico was an island, 100 miles south of the US (just play along with me here), how big would the border problem be?

    That tells you all you need to know about public policy.  Even if it seems cruel, if there’s no opportunity to get across illegally, where the costs outweigh the chances of success, then fewer people will try.  This doesn’t change any personal horrors of current living conditions in Mexico or Central America, but as many Democrats and neo-cons argue, we’re not supposed to be the World Police ™, which would also include the care and feeding of the entire planet.

    We cannot fix the world.  We have evidence of this in places like Detroit and in the insanity realm known as California.  So as tough as it may be to even contemplate, closing the southern border will save lives and suffering, for those who’s options are limited, and for those in the US who will suffer and die as drugs cross over.

    Even harder – we can’t change the governments in those countries.  They are partnered with the cartels, in one form or another, either the “blind eye” or being on the payroll.  The cackling schoolboy in me says whip up Operation Cartel Decapitation and place the full force of the US military in all its forms to kill every single last one of them, everywhere, but that’ll never happen, and probably shouldn’t.  

    Those drugs are evil.  Those who profit from them are evil.  My only solace is that Kammmalalala is in charge, and on top of the sitcheation.
