The folks who were arrested come from a variety of countries including, Benin, Cuba, Ecuador, El Salvador, Honduras, Jordan, Micronesia, Moldova, Nicaragua, Poland, Saudi Arabia, and South Korea. The vast majority were from Guatemala and Mexico.
Over the past 12 months, ICE agents have bused nearly 6,000 convicted killers and deplorable sex traffickers, which explodes the far left’s narrative that the vast majority of people crossing over the southern border are just poor, oppressed individuals looking to come to America and work hard and contribute to our society. You know, to get their own piece of the American dream.
The reality is, the vast majority of these illegals are coming here to escape being sent to prison for carrying out heinous crimes. They come here so they can get away from paying for what they’ve done and to possibly continue their criminal exploits in our country.
This is why we must enforce immigration law and secure the border. To do so isn’t racist, it’s simply a means of securing our nation from folks who want to do us harm.
