Why would this happen so close to the Election? You get 3 guesses…
If you guessed:
1. They dream of US freedom
2. They’re afraid of a Trump win and ergo a ‘Trump Wall’
3. They want Hillary to grant them Amnesty
You are right!
Watch the CBS News report:
MCALLEN, Texas (CBSNewYork/AP) — There has been a surge of immigrants illegally crossing into the United States leading up to next month’s presidential election.
CBS News reports dozens of immigrants have been streaming through the streets of McAllen, Texas, on a daily basis. They have been taken to a migrant center at Sacred Heart Catholic Church where they were released by Border Patrol, with ankle monitors, while they file for asylum.
Agent Chris Cabrera told CBS News that they’ve been seeing a spike in immigrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border illegally, thanks in part to the election.
“The smugglers are telling them if Hillary [Clinton] gets elected, that there’ll be some sort of amnesty, that they need to get here by a certain date,” Cabrera said. “They’re also being told that if [Donald] Trump gets elected, there’s going to be some magical wall that pops up overnight and once that wall gets up, nobody will ever get in again.”
Cabrera added that they’ve encountered up to 1,000 immigrants along McAllen’s stretch of the border some days.
“We’re getting mass spikes of people crossing and turning themselves in,” he said.
…Earlier this month, Trump claimed the U.S. government is speeding up the citizenship process for immigrants on the waiting list so they can vote.
“They’re letting people pour into the country so they can go and vote,” Trump said during a meeting with the National Border Patrol Council.
Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has promised to propose immigration legislation in her first 100 days as president that would include a route to citizenship.

Hillary and the Democrats haven’t done anything about the huge problem of illegal immigration at the southern border.
It’s no secret that criminals and perhaps terrorists are coming across the border along with the folks that want to come to America for good reasons, but skip the line.
They know that their ‘compassion’ will get them votes later, despite the mess the ‘bad ones’ make.
It’s… what’s the word…
