Amnesty Surge Confirmed
Hard data now available
|American Patrol Report -- September 28
Recent reports of a surge of illegal immigration caused by a new amnesty program have now been 100% confirmed by data released by secureborderintel.org. The data were acquired from actual U.S. Border Patrol radio broadcasts made during enforcement actions near Tucson, Arizona. Since Jan. 1, more than 2,000 separate enforcement actions were recorded. Many were cataloged and categorized as human smuggling or drug smuggling.
As shown in this short video, the 1330 individual human smuggling enforcement actions were scattered all over place south and west of Tucson - averaging at least fifteen miles north of the border with many as far north as sixty miles! [See this screen grab near Tucson]
"The vast majority of Americans want the border secured, but now we have irrefutable evidence that the border is not only wide open, our government is making matters worse by granting amnesty to illegal aliens," observed Glenn Spencer, head of American Border Patrol, an Arizona non-profit.
As further proof of the wholesale invasion of Arizona, Secure Border Intel has released a video of suspected illegal aliens near Arivaca. See map.
