GOP lawmaker visits Darien Gap ‘pipeline’ that pumps tens of thousands of migrants to southern border

Rep. Tom Tiffany (R-WI) appeared on the Sara Carter Show to swap stories with Carter on both of their recent trips to Central America. Carter recently returned from Guatemala and Tiffany just returned from Panama. What Tiffany discovered was a “pipeline that runs all the way through Central America, Northern South America, Central America” right up to the southern border.

“First of all, this is not just about people in Mexico or Central America,” Tiffany said. In fact, people from countries outside of Central America make up the second largest group of people that Border Patrol officers encounter at the border. Instead, people from over 160 countries use this pipeline at the Darien gap to get to the southern border tens of thousands at a time.

“And it’s a harrowing journey,” Carter said. “The Darien gap is one of the most, if not the most dangerous place on planet Earth.”

Tiffany stayed in a town called Meteti along the Darien gap to experience what some of these migrants go through. Locals told him that thousands of people a day travel through this town, but there’s only one doctor and he works in a medical tent. And these migrants are not without injury.

“We saw people coming out of the jungle, they had trench foot, some people look like they were about to get gangrene,” Tiffany said. “I saw a woman being wheeled borrowed into a medical facility.”

War correspondent and previous guest on the show Michael Yon has stayed in the Darien gap for weeks, reporting on the recent migrations. Yon estimates that 1 in 7 migrants die along the journey.

Trump, Rep Biggs: invoking the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation will ‘be necessary’

At a recent rally in Iowa, former President Donald Trump promised that if elected again in 2024, he would invoke the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation of migrants who have illegally entered the United States. Since President Joe Biden took office in January of 2021, over 6 million people have illegally entered the country.

Republican Representative Andy Biggs from border state Arizona, which is among the states suffering the greatest consequences from the Biden administration policies, lamented that Trump’s suggestion will be “necessary.”

Speaking on the Just the News, No Noise” television show, Biggs stated “[I]t’s actually gonna have to be necessary.” Biggs then added his thoughts on how many more people will continue to cross the border under Biden: “Because by the time Trump gets back in office, you will have had over 10 million, in my opinion, over 10 million illegal aliens cross our border and come into the country, under the Biden regime.”

“And so when you start deporting people, and removing them from this country, what that does is that disincentivizes the tens of thousands of people who are coming,” Biggs went on. “And by the way, everyday down in Darién Gap, which is in Panama… over 5,000 people a day. [I] talk[ed] to one of my sources from the gap today. And I will just tell you, those people that you’ve seen come come in to Eagle Pass, over 7,000 in a three day period, most of those two weeks ago, were down crossing into the Darién Gap.”

“And those people… make their way up and they end up in the Eagle Pass [Texas], Del Rio area,” he continued. “So if you want to disincentivize them, you remove them from the country, which is why they remain in Mexico policy was so doggone effective at slowing down illegal border crossings.”
