Immigrants from Mexico Allowed in to the US By Using “Key Words” at the Border
Reportedly immigrants from Mexico have been able to get permission to enter the US because they have been taught to use key phrases that convince Border Patrol agents that the immigrants should be treated as refugees and granted admission in to the United States. Border Patrol agents say about 200 people came through the Otay Crossing last Monday claiming a “credible fear” of the drug cartels.
The anti-Immigration crowd is calling this a loophole that illegally allows immigrants in to the country. What we have happening here is that Customs and Border Patrol is finally treating Mexican immigrants the same way they have treated other immigrants for decades. The US has long offered a safe haven and political asylum for refugees from around the world – but systematically denied that same protection to Mexicans due to fears that too many Mexicans would seek our protection. Refugees should all be treated the same, even if they are from Mexico. Hopefully, we have a sign that is becoming a reality.
