How Criminal Organizations Are Profiting Off Of Biden’s Border Crisis; US-Mexico Border Traffickers Earned as Much as $14M a Day Last Month, and related stories

How Criminal Organizations Are Profiting Off Of Biden’s Border Crisis:
On this episode of The Federalist Radio Hour, Josh Jones, a senior fellow in border security for the Texas Public Policy Foundation, joins Political Editor John Daniel Davidson to discuss the role smugglers, traffickers, and drug cartels play in profiting off of the surge of illegal aliens crossing the U.S.-Mexico border.
“It’s loud and clear that unaccompanied minors that are coming to the U.S. are not being turned away,” Jones said, noting that people will pay to be escorted across the border and that cartels will take advantage of large groups and caravans as a way to smuggle drugs across the border.
“They can guarantee a 100 percent success rate, essentially, to folks who are wanting to send their children up into the US or who were coming into the US and sending for their children to come up,” he said.
Solutions for the growing influx of migrants, Jones said, lie in their home countries. We must also eliminate the open border messaging that President Joe Biden and his administration continue to peddle. --->READ MORE HERE

US-Mexico border traffickers earned as much as $14M a day last month
Criminal cartels that are trafficking families, women, children and single adults over the southern border earned as much as $14 million a day in February, according to a report on Monday.
“Trafficking is a multibillion-dollar industry,” former Tucson Border Patrol Chief Roy Villareal, who retired in December after 30 years with the agency told Fox News.
“A lot of these vulnerable populations use their life savings. Some are essentially indentured servants and they’re working off this debt for a long period of time. In other cases, some of these migrants are asked to transport narcotics or some form of crime to work off a different part of their debt,” he said.
The report said, according to smuggling fee revenues estimated by the Customs and Border Patrol, traffickers made a total of $411.5 million in February taking people from Mexico and Central American countries to the US border – which amounts to an average of $14.6 million for each day in February. --->READ MORE HERE
