Congressmen Help Caravan Migrants Hop Border

SPREAD THE NEWS ABOUT WHAT’S REALLY GOING ON AT THE BORDER

Two progressive lawmakers, Representatives Jimmy Gomez (D-Calif.) and Nanette Diaz Barragán (D-Calif.) escorted Central American migrants in Tijuana into the United States Monday evening. 

Breitbart’s Neil Munro reports:
 

The group of favored migrants at the Otay Mesa port of entry included Maria Meza, the Central American woman who was photographed when she brought her two children right up to the U.S. border as border officers launched tear gas to repel aggressive migrants. The group also included several teenagers who will soon turn 18 and lose the legal protections set for non-adult migrants.

“After 7hrs, I can now confirm: Maria Meza & her kids — featured in this @Reuters image fleeing tear gas at the border last month — just filed for asylum,” tweeted California Democratic Rep. Jimmy Gonzalez. “They’re on American soil.”

 


Pro-migration groups, including “Families Belong Together” organized yesterday’s concerted effort.
 

Asylum laws do not allow economic migrants to get green cards and then jobs, so most will be rejected by immigration judges.

It is not clear if any of the migrants will be released into the United States or be held at family detention centers until their pleas for asylum are rejected.

Border patrol agents are “metering” the number of migrants allowed to apply for asylum at the border daily, to prevent too many from overwhelming available resources.

Democrats argue U.S. Customs & Border Protection (CBP) should not limit who’s able to request asylum – even if the processing system becomes backlogged.

During the event, Representatives Gomez and Barragán posted videos highlighting their efforts.
