Border patrol agents continue to be overwhelmed after encountering almost 2,000 migrants in the Rio Grande Valley sector in just one 24-hour span on Friday, marking a disturbing reference point in the surge at the southern border since President Joe Biden took office.
At least 262 migrants of those migrants were “gotaways” – meaning they were detected but agents lacked sufficient resources to apprehend them according to a source from the Department of Homeland Security as reported by Fox News. The Rio Grande Valley sector includes about 277 miles of the border along the Rio Grande and 326 miles along the gulf and has witnessed a 161 percent increase in migrant encounters, and has witnessed more than 65,000 encounters so far in Fiscal Year 2022 compared to the same period the prior year.
In the nearby Del Rio sector where migrant crossings caused an outright crisis last month when as many as 15,000 migrants gathered under a bridge in the small border town of Del Rio, Texas, there has been a 236 percent increase of migrant encounters so far this Fiscal Year compared to the prior year and a total of 6,500 “gotaways.” In all, Fiscal Year 2021 saw more than 1.7 million encounters with migrants along the southern border. In September, which marks the last month of the federal government’s fiscal year, there were 192,000 such encounters.
The influx of migrants since Biden took office has been influenced in large part by the president rescinding a President Donald Trump era policy that required migrants to remain in Mexico while they awaited their immigration court dates.
A federal court judge later determined the Migrant Protection Program (MPP) was not rolled back in a legal manner leading the administration to announce simultaneously that would be re-implemented in mid-November in line with the court order while also announcing the ultimate termination of the policy. This is despite an acknowledgment that the program “likely contributed to reduced migratory flows.”
“This Administration is tackling longstanding problems that have plagued our immigration system for decades in order […]
One Sick Day Proves We Need More Voices in Truthful Media
On October 19, I was sick. It crossed my mind that I had finally gotten the ‘rona, but my wife’s cream of chicken soup and a few extra hours of sleep into mid-afternoon had be back up and running after a sleepless night before.
When I finally stumbled over to my computer in the evening, I was met with a deluge of concern from readers. They asked what had happened as only one article had been posted that day. Generally, we post between 10-20 daily between all of the sites, not included curated and aggregated content. Seeing that we’d only posted my super-early morning article before taking the rest of the day off had readers assuming the worst.
We have a wonderful and talented group of writers who volunteer their time for the sites and their readers. Sharing their amazing perspectives has always been a blessing to us because we cannot afford to hire anyone at this time. But having great writers is meaningless if we don’t have great editors, or at least one additional. My wife helps me read and edit stories from time to time, but I’m a one-man show when it comes to getting the stories posted.
Whenever I highlight our desperate need for donations, I note that we do not receive money from Google ads even though most in conservative media are beholden. I often ambiguously note that the money donated will help us grow. Today, I’m highlighting a specific need. We must get an editor to help take some of the load and to expand on our mission of spreading the truth to the world. One sick day proved that.
The great news is that there is no shortage of people who CAN help. I am emailed variations of resumes every week by people who are much smarter than I am. As much as I’d love to hire some of them, we simply cannot. That takes money and as blessed as we’ve been to receive donations and collect ad money (though not from Google or Facebook), we have still fallen short.
Those who have the means, PLEASE consider donating. We have the standard Giving Fuel option and people can donate through PayPal. We are also diving into what we believe is extremely disruptive technology at LetsGo.finance, the world’s first major donation portal for crypto. I’ll be talking a lot more about them in the near future. Those who prefer Bitcoin can send to my address here: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
We can get the voices out there and we’re willing to shine a spotlight on new talent. We just need the resources to make it happen. If you can help, we would be extremely grateful.
Thank you and God bless!
