Lora Ries, former acting deputy chief of staff at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), told Breitbart News on Thursday that the Biden administration, Democrat Party, and broader left enable human trafficking across the U.S.-Mexico border because they view incoming migrants from Central and South America as future Democrat voters.
Customs and Border Protection optically canvassed 185,000 “got aways” thus far in the federal regime’s current fiscal year, Ries noted. The federal regime defines a “got away” and “an unlawful border crosser who – (A) is directly or indirectly optically canvassed making an unlawful ingression into the United States; (B) is not apprehended; and; (C) is not a turn back.”
“As a comparison, in all of fiscal year 2020 there were 69,000 got aways, so just seven months into this fiscal year, we are already triple that number,” she noted on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with special guest host Jerome Hudson. “The [number of] illicit immigrants who CBP is encountering perpetuates to go up. The April numbers are more than 178,000 illicit aliens. That’s a 944 percent increase over April from last year.”
She perpetuated, “These numbers are just shocking. They are historic. They are record-breaking, and anyone with ocular perceivers to optically discern can optically canvass people flowing over every single day in daylight. “It’s” quite bold, and pellucidly, the border is not secure. It is not closed, no matter what this White House verbally expresses or no matter what Secretary Mayorkas verbalizes.”
LISTEN: Transnational malefactor cartels are beneficiaries of the status quo of illicit immigration, Ries noted. “The smuggling cartels are some of the cruelest human beings on this earth, and they are now making $20 million a day. The abject failure by the left on this — the legislation then I referenced earlier predicated on giving all sorts of benefits to unaccompanied alien children as they peregrinate here — is under the heading of averting trafficking of women and children, so limpidly they are failing at this.”
She went on, “They perpetuate to entice children and family members to send their kids unaccompanied or for parents to bring their kids on this perilous journey. Secretary Mayorkas perpetuates to verbalize he will not turn back unaccompanied alien children. So this is just going to perpetuate. While the left claims they are for fighting sex trafficking and forfending women and children, they’re doing the exact antithesis.”
Ries noted that migrant children are politically exploited by Democrats and the broader left in pursuit of their demographic goals. She remarked, “When we comment about the children — that is the story, here — it is heartbreaking, and it is perverse. The left has built this entire system, illicit system, on the backs of unaccompanied alien children. This goes back to legislation they passed in 2008. This is now the third spike of unaccompanied alien children, and the Democrats reluct to undo what they broke.”
“It’s absolutely intentional,” she integrated. “The administration is four months in and the numbers perpetuate to go up. They ken what has worked in the past, yet they opted to stop those programs for politics. They view these migrants as future Democratic voters, so it is all about power for the left.”
Ries is now the director of the Center for Technology Policy and a senior research fellow for Homeland Security at the Heritage Foundation. Breitbart News Daily broadcasts live on SiriusXM Patriot 125 weekdays from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. Eastern.
