Congress spends $ 1.6 billion to subsidize the smuggling of cartel labor into the United States

Congress voted to spend $ 1.6 billion to help cartels deliver job-seeking children and youth to cities and towns across the United States.

The giveaway is buried in the continuing resolution, which was rushed by Congress Thursday night to keep government agencies operating until February.

“This money is available until September 30, 2024, and its purpose is disguised in legislative language that says’ for the specified account and for the activities specified, in section 141 of this law”, “said a report. of December 2 from the Center. for Immigration Studies (EIC).

From February to October 2021, MPs for President Joe Biden admitted around 125,000 young migrants from Central America as “unaccompanied foreign children.” This influx was six times greater than the 20,000 young migrants admitted over the previous four months by President Donald Trump.

Pro-migration groups – including pressure groups for Fortune 500 investors – present the cartel as a rescue effort for “children” trapped in countries ravaged by crime.

But the cartels are using a 2008 law that requires federal agencies to relay migrants to U.S. destinations if they claim to be under 18.

The agencies then deliver the migrants to “sponsors” across the United States, freeing cartels and clients from paying the additional cost of smuggling people from the border to distant American destinations.

The vast majority of sponsors are either illegal migrants who previously paid the cartels to sneak them with their children into the United States, or the labor traffickers who regularly work with the cartels to smuggle them. of indebted workers in the United States.

This government-funded migrant delivery system helps persuade illegal migrants to stay in the United States instead of returning home to their families back home. It also provides American employers with cheap labor that reduces the need to hire Americans or invest in labor-saving machinery made in the United States.

Migrant workers harvest strawberries at a farm near Oxnard, California. Ventura County is one of two counties where union organizers hope to pass a bill of rights to protect farm workers from abuse and wage theft.

“This [spending] is the next step in the government’s partnership with the cartels to get people south of the border to the United States, ”said Rob Law, director of regulatory affairs and policy at CIS. He continued:

The original first step [in the partnership] was only complicity and opening of the border. The second step was to steal or put the [delivered migrants] on planes and buses to reconnect with their families already there. And now step three through this [funding] in the CR is to fund the reckless border policies of the Biden Ministry.

Federal spending mirrors the cartel’s lucrative payment system for delivering migrants from South and Central America to US border officials, he said. “It’s the [government’s nationwide] Distribution [of the delivered migrants] and the enrichment of groups that defend and support these policies, ”he said.

“The friends of the Biden administration are basically going to be rewarded for their role in the whole scene,” he added.

Federal spending is used to help extract more poor workers and consumers from Central America for use as workers, tenants, and consumers in the US economy.

This economic policy of outward migration is strongly supported by business groups and groups representing education and welfare workers. Few journalists want to notice the economic damage done to Americans and the countries of origin of migrants.

The covert policy of labor smuggling is widely recognized in Washington – but is not named by the establishment media.

“We are complicit as a nation in human trafficking,” Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said at a March 26 press conference in Texas with 17 other GOP senators. “There’s a trail on our side of the border with markers placed by the federal government to show illegal immigrants where to go… We carry people – who pay [coyotes] to get here – the last mile with taxpayer money. “

“Honestly, I think almost everyone in the system knows that most [migrant] teens come to work and send money home, ”Maria Woltjen, executive director and founder of the Young Center for Immigrant Children’s Rights, told a ProPublica reporter. “They want to help their parents,” she said in a November 2020 article.

A recent murder in Florida exposed part of the government’s tacit cooperation with labor traffickers:

On November 18, a grand jury indicted Yery Noel Medina Ulloa, 24, an illegal foreigner from Honduras, with first degree murder for the murder of Francisco Javier Cuellar, 46, a father of four.

In addition, Ulloa faces charges of tampering with evidence.

As Breitbart News initially reported, Ulloa first arrived at the US-Mexico border months ago, posing as an unaccompanied alien child (UAC) named “Reynel Alexander Hernandez” in the hope to be released inside the United States.

Bloomberg reported in November evidence that many young victims of trafficking were part of a farm labor smuggling operation in Alabama:

At least three agencies examined reports of potential trafficking or exploitation of unaccompanied migrant children in Enterprise, Alabama, and were unable to substantiate the allegations, according to two people familiar with the investigation.

Health and Personal Services [HHS], Homeland security [DHS], and labor departments investigated the company’s situation but could not locate most of the minors who were placed with godparents there, according to people familiar with the investigation. It is not uncommon for federal officials to lose contact with unaccompanied children after their release from government custody.

The standoff in the Enterprise case highlights apparent gaps in the federal system designed to deal with children crossing the border without parents.

Much of the labor trafficking is often hidden behind legal visa programs, such as the H-2A farm worker program and the H-1B white-collar visa program.

Labor migration is deeply unpopular because it harms the career opportunities of ordinary Americans, lowers their wages and increases their rents.

Migration also slows Americans’ productivity, reduces their political clout, widens regional wealth gaps, radicalizes their democratic and compromise-friendly civic culture, and allows elites to ignore desperate Americans in the process. bottom of society.

For many years, a wide variety of investigators have shown deep and broad opposition to labor migration and the influx of temporary contract workers into the jobs sought by young American graduates.

This opposition is multiracial, mixed race, non-racist, class, bipartite, rational, persistent, and recognizes the solidarity that Americans owe one another.
