Thousands of Haitian Refugees Preparing for Journey to U.S. Border

Thousands of Haitians were prepping for a journey to the south-western border of the U.S. in July, according to officials, who say they knew about it back then and did not do anything to stop them from coming.

The thousands of migrants who have been streaming across the border since October were prepared long before that date, with many already living in Brazil or other Latin American countries and waiting for their chance at asylum in America.

The migrants are “basically saying they fear for their life, and they’re coming here to save their lives,” according to Guatemalan Ambassador Luis Manuel Lopez Moreno.

“That’s why we think there is a problem that the United States has not yet come out with an immigration plan or policy that allows people to live well in the United States without thinking of leaving, because if all these people are leaving their countries it’s either because they feel discriminated (against), mistreated or persecuted.” The thousands of Haitians who have been streaming across the border since October were prepared long before that date, with many already living in Brazil or other Latin American countries and waiting for their chance at asylum in America.    When asked by Reuters about this claim, Guatemala’s government did not provide any evidence of it.

The surge in Haitians crossing the U.S.-Mexico border illegally accelerated this year as a new crackdown on human smuggling along the eastern border shut down traditional routes into America, driving more migrants to attempt the longer and more dangerous journey through Latin America and to the southwest border, according to immigration officials and advocates for immigrants.

As Breitbart Texas has reported for more than a year, the number of illegal border crossing apprehensions from nations that are known to be involved in the transmission of Ebola has steadily increased.

No one in their right mind believes these people are running away from Haiti because they want a better life in America or have been persecuted by Haitians who live there. These migrants have been lying from the beginning when they claim to have been part of the 2010 Haitian Earthquake relief effort . In fact, after Hurricane Matthew devastated parts of Haiti last month , Obama was still encouraging Haitians to come to America and apply for benefits under the ‘Temporary Protected Status’ program.

Haitian migrants have been flooding into Mexico, headed for the United States, since at least April . Two thousand people were stranded in Chiapas this past month as they waited for smuggling guides to lead them across the border. An estimated 1,300 Haitian migrants are stranded in Tijuana as of last week. Over this past weekend, 230 more arrived from Brazil where they had been living after fleeing Haiti due to the 2010 earthquake .

In May 2015, a group of 1,200 Haitians took shelter at a hotel resort on Huaycan , an affluent suburb south of Lima, Peru’s capital city. After a few months, Haitians were seen in Iquitos , Peru’s largest city located on the Amazon River. Haitian migrants are crossing the U.S.-Mexico border illegally to seek asylum since at least 2014 .

U.S. Border Patrol agents said they are being ordered to release illegal immigrants caught entering through Mexico because Mexican authorities are demanding they be let into the United States  “They’ll bring them to the station, and then they tell them to continue going north until they find a border patrol agent,” said Hector Garza, president of Local 2455 in Laredo, Texas  “We’re catching these people, but then we have to let them go.”  “If that person who’s trying to evade justice or an order for deportation gets released into the United States, that’s a U.S. citizen that’s going to be victimized,” said Art Del Cueto, president of Local 2544 in Tucson, Ariz.,  “And we have no way of tracing them.”

Peruvian authorities have been working to counter what they see as a misinformation campaign by smugglers who tell Haitians that it is easy for them to receive residency and work permits if they enter Peru from Brazil  Brazilian officials estimate there are around 4 ,000 Haitian migrants currently living in northern Brazil. Many of those arrivals came with the false hopes of making a better life for themselves .
