The surge in migrant encounters, reaching a record-setting 12,000 in a single day, highlights the escalating border crisis. Lukeville, AZ, emerges as a focal point, with border crossings doubling at the northern border. The strain on border patrol prompts closures and reduced processing, signaling the need for urgent solutions. Meanwhile, Vivek Ramaswamy asserts that the existing federal law provides the tools for immediate action on the 11 to 22 million illegal aliens. He advocates leveraging the ICE agency’s 287(g) program, allowing local law enforcement to aid in detaining and deporting individuals within the country illegally, emphasizing the untapped potential within current legislation.
The elites are using illegals as weapons in a war against us.
No words. The border crossings were only going to go up. The border patrol has seen at least 10,000 people a day, almost daily.
Lukeville, AZ, has become the new epicenter of the border crisis. We also see border crossings double at the northern border.
The border patrol has already asked all agents on all borders to help virtually process all migrants. They’ve had to close border points of entry, cut down vehicle processing, etc.
OP primary candidate and businessman Vivek Ramaswamy said the federal government has the authority under current federal law “to deport anybody who is in this country illegally.”
During Wednesday evening’s GOP primary debate on NewsNation, Ramaswamy said the president and Congress do not have to pass any additional laws to have the nation’s 11 million to 22 million illegal aliens deported.
The federal government, Ramaswamy said, can utilize the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency’s 287(g) program to allow local law enforcement to help detain and deport illegal aliens living within the interior of the United States.
“There are things that the government can do right now that nobody is talking about among the professional politicians in this race,” Ramaswamy said:
What about all of the illegals who are already here? Here’s the answer: There’s 287(g) provision in the law. That is something that already allows ICE agents to deputize or allow local law enforcement to enforce those ICE warrants. [Emphasis added]
And it shocks me that nobody in the Republican Party is talking about it because there are one million … law enforcement officials in this country and against that backdrop, we absolutely have that ability to deport anybody who is in this country illegally. [Emphasis added]
