U.S. Groups Want to Take over Coyotes’ Migrant Extraction Business

Pro-migration groups are using the record death rate among illegal migrants to demand they be hired by the government to safely import more of the coyote-delivered migrants.
President Joe Biden’s government uses the coyote networks to extract and deliver extra migrants above the roughly one million legal immigrants per year set by Congress. Once the migrants are delivered through the cartel-controlled border zone, U.S. officials provide them with legal status or exemptions from deportation while they work at low wages for U.S. companies.
The government’s under-the-table welcome for the coyotes’ paying clients is also fuelling a record-breaking death rate on the border. The death toll was spotlighted by the United Nations’ Institute for Migration on July 1:
More than 1,238 lives have been lost during migration in the [north, central and south] Americas in 2021, among them at least 51 children … At least 728 of these deaths occurred on the United States-Mexico border crossing, making this the deadliest land crossing in the world.
Krish O’Mara Vignarajah, president of the Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service wants to take over some of the coyotes’ business.
“Political leaders can … reduce the overall number of people arriving at our southern border by creating real pathways that do not require risk to vulnerable populations and reward to criminal coyotes,” said a CNN op-ed by O’Mara Vignarajah.

Her group is already paid by the federal government to settle government-approved refugee migrants in Americans’ communities and jobs. She continued:
One such pathway is the US Refugee Admissions Program, which admits and resettles refugees whose applications are processed while the applicant remains abroad, avoiding the need to embark upon the treacherous journey to the US.

The Biden administration should immediately scale up overseas processing and expand to new locations where there are large groups of refugees in protracted situations, like in South and Central America. Doing so would improve upon its woeful underperformance in meeting its refugee commitments.
Other pro-migration groups back her pitch for additional safe, legalized migration.
“Reforms must allow us to bring in legal guest workers and open legal avenues for people to come in to help our economy,” insisted Domingo García, president of an ethnic identity group for Latinos, dubbed LULAC, or the League of United Latin Ameican Citizens. “These steps will prevent these refugees and immigrants from being thrown into the hands of human smugglers and coyotes who are willing to risk the lives of others for a dollar,” he wrote.
O’Mara Vignarajah’s argument that Americans should save migrants’ lives by legalizing illegal migration exposes the radical ambition of the pro-migration groups, noted Mark Krikorian, the director of the Center for Immigration Studies:
