Instead of having some sort of immigration system in place, Mexico is allowing nearly 3,000 migrants to head straight through to the United States border. A migrant caravan arrived at Mexico’s southern border on Friday, and “rather than trying to stop the group, authorities issued permits and allowed them to continue north in a fragmented manner” reports Breitbart.

The travel permits were issued by Mexico’s National Immigration Institute (INM) which give the migrants “30 days to travel freely through the country.” According to INM, the Huixtla, Chiapas office handed out the permits in order to disrupt the caravan.

Breitbart writes: “The move by Mexico’s INM is a direct contrast to prior approaches dating back to the Trump era, where authorities would meet caravans with riot shields and batons.” As recently as last year, human rights activists accused INM agents of using excessive force against migrants.

Last September, “photographs and videos circulated on social media capturing numerous violent clashes” between migrants ad INM, reported Breitbart. “In one, a video shows an INM agent kicking a migrant on the ground, which led to the suspension of two agents and an ongoing investigation into police brutality.”

Human rights activists and liberal media personalities bashed Mexico’s government, claiming President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador is doing the bidding of the U.S. by stopping the caravans.

The first month of 2023 at the southern border is already looking bleak; just take a look at the numbers. U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers in El Paso, Texas have seized over 500 pounds of hard drugs in January alone.

Additionally, the agency apprehended 62 people they were able to identify as having outstanding arrest warrants. Among the criminals were sex offenders.

The devastating numbers are not surprising, given that in December, the El Paso mayor declared a sate of emergency “after record numbers of people were released onto city streets and sidewalks by the Biden administration” reports The Center Square.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott also “sent 400 National Guard troops to restore order and provide humanitarian assistance” adds the media outlet. Border Patrol data showed in December, 55,766 illegal foreign nationals were apprehended in the El Paso Sector.

There were also 32,632 known and recorded gotaways in December, meaning they were able to evade getting captured by law and immigration officials. law enforcement officers told The Center Square that despite the skyrocket high numbers, “these seizures and apprehensions represent a fraction of the amount of people and drugs being trafficked to the southern border between ports of entry.”
