It appears that some human smugglers are now carrying AK-47s. Will the Democrats in Congress do something about illegal border crossing now?
This dangerous change in the way human smugglers escort would-be migrants was caught on video by Customs and Border Patrol on Saturday night near Lukeville, Arizona.
On the video, four to five smugglers appear to be wearing full tactical gear and masks while carrying long guns and AK-47s as they escort a Guatemalan woman and her 8-year old son across the border. One of the armed escorts assist the pair under a vehicle barrier and then cross back into Mexico.
A dozen or so CPB agents responded once the group was spotted on camera. The woman and her son are in custody.
Increasingly, illegal aliens have been boldly crossing the border during the day but this heavily armed escort at night is a shift in tactics. That has been easier with the use of technology like drones.
Their nighttime entry under the cover of darkness contrasts with the bold daytime illegal crossings that have become common since migrants realized the U.S. is seemingly powerless to prevent “catch and release.” It also took advantage of forces spread thin along the border due to the surge of Central American unaccompanied children and families. Recently, border patrol cameras have captured video of cartel-operated drones monitoring their movement.
This is a lucrative business that smugglers are determined to protect.
Many of the “open borders” Democrats insist that there is no crisis despite the CBP report citing “unprecedented numbers of illegal alien apprehensions” this fiscal year.
The breach underscores what officials have been telling an indifferent Congress for months about being overwhelmed by the surge of asylum seekers crossing the border.
Border officials said the incident represents how criminal organizations are behind the lucrative surge of Central American immigrants. Guatemalans are paying roughly $7,000 to smugglers for transport from their home to the U.S. border.
“This is highly unusual and highly concerning to the agency,” said a border official who briefed Fox News. “These armed individuals along the border represent an escalation of tactics. This is not mom and dad and kids deciding to head to the border. This is a no kidding, orchestrated effort to bring individuals to the US. It is not just the numbers. It’s who is running this enterprise.”

The “open borders” Democrats don’t seem to take the violation of our immigration laws, the risk to our CBP officers, or the exploitation of Central American migrants by criminal organizations very seriously.
They need to.
We need a wall before a dangerous confrontation on the border occurs.
