Mexican Officials Worry That Migrant-Friendly Biden Is Creating Big Business for Criminal Gangs

Well, when you sanction illegal activity, you’ll get more of it, right? This seems so obvious.

Mexico’s government is worried the new U.S. administration’s asylum policies are stoking illegal immigration and creating business for organized crime.

Ever since President Joe Biden won the White House vowing to undo the hardline approach of his predecessor Donald Trump, Mexico has both looked forward to an end to migration burdens imposed by Trump and braced for a new influx of people.

Detentions on the U.S border have surged since Biden took office on Jan. 20. Mexico has urged Washington to help stem the flow by providing development aid to Central America, from where most migrants come, driven by a humanitarian crisis.

Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said:

“They see him as the migrant president, and so many feel they’re going to reach the United States.  We need to work together to regulate the flow, because this business can’t be tackled from one day to the next.”

Apprehensions on the U.S.-Mexico border in February hit levels unseen since mid-2019, and were the highest for that month in 15 years, data reported by Reuters showed.

Among U.S. steps Mexico worries are encouraging migration are improved support for victims of gangs and violence, streamlining of the legalization process, and suspension of Trump-era accords that deported people to Central America.

One Mexican official familiar with migration developments, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said organized crime began changing its modus operandi “from the day Biden took office” and now exhibited “unprecedented” levels of sophistication.

That includes briefing clients on the latest immigration rules, using technology to outfox authorities, and disguising smuggling operations as travel agencies, assessments showed.

Higher concentrations of migrants in border areas have encouraged gangs to recruit some as drug mules, and kidnap others for money, said Cesar Peniche, attorney general of Chihuahua, the state with the longest stretch of U.S. frontier.

    Anyone with common sense will know that inviting illegals to cross the Border will also invite more crimes and expenses for any country to do so,not to mention the diseases they might bring in. The Mexican Govt. will also be impacted because illegals must cross their Borders first and that will be a crisis for them as well. Biden has violated the immigration law of the U.S. because he opened the door to welcome all illegals to come in without any form of vetting. He made the LEGAL IMMIGRATION Law useless and that I think is abuse of power. I don’t know what is in his mind, but everyone with brains can see that this is wrong. This is not humanitarian, this rewarding crimes.

      The Biden Cartel stands to make millions or billions from these so called illegal aliens. I wish somebody would investigate that racket.

    Dear Mexico,
    Please understand that the vast number of American citizens DID NOT vote this corrupt clown into office. He and Harris are unelected White House occupants hell bent on one world order which is chaos. You have our sympathies as I hope that we have yours. The people in office in the US are criminals that no one with any power has the guts to do something about. They are destroying the US also.

      Indeed, maybe 55 million people voted for China Biden. In fact, it was so obvious that not one election fraud case was ever litigated and ruled against. According to those midgets none of the cases had standing, so that means that we have to assume that the cases would have been decided the same as the New York case where the two democrats were found guilty of election fraud, mail-voting fraud and voter harvesting.
