Large Groups of Illegal Immigrants Moving Near the Border


SAN DIEGO — After encountering a series of unusual sized groups of illegal immigrants for the region, San Diego Sector (SDC) Border Patrol agents, in partnership with the government of Mexico, conducted an operation targeting the smuggling organization responsible for transporting these large groups to the border.

On Nov. 4, San Diego Sector’s Foreign Operations Branch, working with the government of Mexico, conducted the operation, which led to the arrest of two Mexican citizens for human smuggling, the seizure of a box truck, and the rescue of 75 illegals from Brazil, Venezuela, and Portugal who were locked inside of the box truck.

“Partnerships with the government of Mexico continue to play a vital role in combating smugglers who exploit individuals for monetary gain,” said Chief Patrol Agent Aaron Heitke.  “We thank them for their support and will continue our joint-effort to bring these criminals to justice.”

Over the last several weeks, San Diego Sector Border Patrol agents encountered an increasing number of unusual sized illegal alien groups ranging from approximately 50 to 90 people.

Between Oct. 28 and Nov. 9, agents encountered five groups, mostly from Brazil and Venezuela. The groups all entered the United States illegally and consisted of men, women, and children and were 43, 49, 73, 84 and 93 people in size.

On Oct. 27, agents observed a box truck dropping off a group of individuals on the southside of the international border fence. The group proceeded to enter the United States through a compromised drainage tube. Agents responded to the area and encountered 67 men, women, and children from both Brazil and Venezuela.

On Oct. 26, agents encountered two groups of immigrants that illegally entered the United States through a compromised sewer grate. The first group consisted of 86 Brazilian nationals. A few hours later, the second group of illegals, consisting of 69 Brazilian nationals, was encountered at the same location. Both groups consisted of men, women, and children.

On Oct. 23, agents observed a group of immigrants illegally enter the United States through a drainage tube three miles west of the San Ysidro Port of Entry. Agents responded to the area and encountered 72 men, women, and children. Every person in the group was determined to be from either Brazil or Venezuela.

This is about them being caught, so good job by Biden's Border Patrol!

ME Someone, Mon, 11/22/2021 - 12:37

Nah, only republicans do that.

I don't even like Biden all that much, as I have said before, a vote for Biden wasn't necessarily a vote for Biden himself, it was a vote against trump. He is better than trump for sure.

You are just so convinced that other people worship their leaders simply because republicans do. It's not that way with anyone else, only republicans have a cult mentality.

Who’s your guy Bernie Sanders? If so that explains a lot lol. Or were you one of those screaming at the sky when Trump trounced Hillary?

This is the some of the same group Panamanian officials warned was coming over a month ago ;)

“I don’t even like Biden all that much”

Oh please! Up until just recently you were claiming he could do no wrong ;)

ME Someone, Mon, 11/22/2021 - 15:50

Where did I post that he could do no wrong? I have never said anything of the sort. I have always said the same thing. That a vote for him wasn't a vote for Biden himself it was a vote against trump. The only time I really defend him is when you people make things up, even then all I do is get the correct information out there in the sea of republican propaganda that this "website" is. Just because I think (know) he is better than trump does not mean I automatically support everything he does, and by extension democrats. You are just accustomed to republicans supporting their leaders blindly and think democrats and people that support them do the same. They do not.

Just because I defend someone from republican lies does not mean I support them in everything they do.

You’re full of it. Hey I don’t blame you demo libs for jumping ship the guy you voted into office is a complete screw up.

Yes post proof so me me can say your lying and then post a bunch of nonsense about trump being a white supremacist.

“Still better than Trump”

Afghanistan…fail! The border…fail! The economy…fail! Supply chain…fail! 

Need I go on, or are you just going to blame others like you brainwashed liberal ideologues always do?

ME Someone, Mon, 11/22/2021 - 16:44

You didn't want our troops out of afghanistan? Sure it could have been done better, but the previous two republican presidents who tried to get us out of the same situation didn't do any better either.

The border issue started under trump and he had his own surge in 2019 that you said nothing about.

Stock market (trumps evaluation of the economy) continues to rise, what part of the economy are you talking about? Inflation? that has been going on since before biden took office and is mostly corporations driving the prices up to make up for their losses because of covid. Gas prices? Presidents do not control gas prices, and those are rising all over the world because of increased demand since most people stayed home the previous year, biden certainly didnt make the prices go up all over the planet.

Supply chains all over the world are in disruption because of covid. Unless you are going to blame a problem that is going on all over the world on Biden, this isn't caused by him.

I LOVE how you people are so so so desperate to blame anything on biden that you can.

Under Trump our economy was booming, we weren’t dependent on foreign sources of oil, we had little to no inflation, historically low unemployment even among minorities, and we were well on our way to securing our southern border ;)

Yawn just blame Trump. Him and covid…which I hate to spoil your utopian socialist wet dream, but it’s GOING AWAY you lying demo libs are going to have to find something else to demagogue ;)

ME Someone, Mon, 11/22/2021 - 17:02

Yet all you do is blame Biden, self aware much?

How is covid going away socialist? You can't even tell me what socialism is, although you have admitted to reading socialist literature before and have quoted socialist writers.

I am very glad covid is going away, I don't know anyone that isn't. But it won't go away entirely, and it will probably have another surge during this season as people spend more time indoors and travel more often.

Also, if democrats/Biden are so inept and can't do anything right then how did they mastermind this massive election fraud that Trump and you republicans keep saying happened? How are democrats both masterminds of a huge election fraud done so well they left no trace that even republican run investigations found no evidence of, yet so inept that they can't do anything right? Odd that you would paint them as both isn't it?

ME Someone, Mon, 11/22/2021 - 21:14

No it isn't, it's in the 40's (varies depending on poll.) Quit lying.!

Also, you spelled "LAUGHER" wrong and your sentence "You do realize your precious leader approval rating at 25%(:(:(:" should read "You do realize your precious leader's approval rating is at 25%(:(:(:", way to prove yourself uneducated, or is your ineptness at even the most elementary of skills Biden's fault too?

ME Someone, Tue, 11/23/2021 - 08:57

Poor attempts at insults means I have won and you have lost, like republicans usually do. Thank you for losing.

And yet you call out someone for a spelling error in a lame attempt to make yourself appear smarter than them?

From my experience those who feel the need to do that are not just arrogant douchebags, in reality they’re simply not that smart ;)

ME Someone, Tue, 11/23/2021 - 10:09

And you have never corrected my spelling? Think long and hard about this one.

Haha you’re a douchebag. Not a spelling error it was the improper usage of a word ;)

ME Someone, Tue, 11/23/2021 - 10:49

You lost again, you even had to edit you comment to save yourself, hahahahaha.

ME Someone, Tue, 11/23/2021 - 10:54

LOST AGAIN, now trying to change your comment to fit HAHAHAHAHAHA

You can't squirm out of this one HAHAHAHA

Simple. What the left is doing may look like a cluster, but it’s ALL intentional. The plan is to overwhelm the system through increases in immigration and the welfare state, do away with capitalism which they view as inherently evil, and turn even MORE power and control over to the federal government ;)

ME Someone, Tue, 11/23/2021 - 08:55

What have Democrats done that "increases the welfare state"? Besides, we all pay taxes, what is wrong with getting services in return? Is it because you don't want people you don't like to have anything? Biden uses the same deportation laws trump does, the only trump era policies he got rid of were the wall (proven a waste of money) and remain in mexico (which is people coming here legally), all of the other executive orders were to reimplement policies trump ended.

Be specific on which laws you are actually referring to, you are being purposefully vague.

Unregulated capitalism is bad for the American people. Look at the healthcare industry, look at all of the corporations buying everything up so they can rent it back to us. Capitalism requires infinite growth, which is unsustainable and impossible. 

Also, republicans are rigging elections in front of our eyes.

I said the PLAN was to do those things you don’t listen very well do you?

As for capitalism you don’t have a clue what you’re talking about. Capitalism is based on free market principles. In democratic socialist countries, which is where the left is taking us, the government picks the winners and the losers based on their own set of “rules”.

You know for someone who’s SUPPOSEDLY educated you’re not very smart ;)

ME Someone, Tue, 11/23/2021 - 10:01

Oh plan huh? Who are the ones planning what? Be specific, you are still being purposfully vague, I think because you don't have any real policies (or "plans") to quote.

One question, if the US didn't have any regulatory agencies (FDA, USDA, etc.) do you think companies would keep people safe from their products (tainted meat, bad medication)? Or do you think they would do anything in search of profits?

Also, I thought you said they were "marxist"? "Democratic socialism" and "marxism" are incompatible and actually contrast one another, can't be both.

"Democratic socialism is contrasted with Marxism–Leninism, which is often perceived as being authoritarian and undemocratic in practice.[20] Democratic socialists oppose the Stalinist political system and the Soviet-type economic planning system, rejecting as their form of governance and administrative-command system that formed in the Soviet Union and other Marxist–Leninist states during the 20th century."

ME Someone, Tue, 11/23/2021 - 10:47

At least I attempt to provide evidence of my positions (wikipedia cites it's sources if you click on the little number in brackets) you never provide proof (or even evidence) of anything you say, because all you do is lie. Because that is what republicans have to do to even have a point; lie.

Here is you losing once again,

A brainwashed liberal ideologue lecturing others on the “evils” of capitalism how original ;)

ME Someone, Tue, 11/23/2021 - 10:57

Prove your position then, cite what laws the democrats are trying to pass to turn the US into "democratic socialist" society

PROVE IT or you are just regurgitating right wing talking points and what your masters want you to think and repeat.

Also, here is you losing once again,

And since you fail to answer any of my questions or provide any proof of your own you are admitting defeat once again, thank you for losing. This is getting really fun.

That's the thing, they AREN'T passing any laws.  They're just issuing "mandates" that lead to unemployment, business shutdowns, and (crossing their fingers) government dependency from individuals, families, businesses, etc.  They're using self given, never to be rescinded emergency powers to protect us from a disease with a 99% survival rate to mandate soci/fasci/communism.  It's not democrat vs republican.  With few exceptions in either party, they're all on board for the same agenda now.  More vaccines, everyone must be vaccinated with no exceptions, or you're a pariah.  Ignore that the most vaccinated cities/states/nations on the planet have the highest reported infection rates, that just means we need more boosters, which are just another dose of the ineffective original shots.  Ignore the multiple prophylactics and therapeutics available.  Change the definition of vaccinated over and over, change the definitions of herd immunity.  Fear, scare, etc., because that justifies the mandates, and with mandates we don't need laws.  All for our safety, of course.  And ignore the Fauci/US connection to the Wuhan Institute of Virology, nothing to see here. 

ME Someone, Tue, 11/23/2021 - 22:23

If they aren't passing any laws (lie) then how are they pushing for "SoCiAlIsM"?

Trump had lockdowns too, and recommends taking the vaccine. 

"survival rate" is not what to look at. You are just ignoring 700,000+ Americans dead. I guess you don't care about other Americans like your republican buddies.

You are just full of all kinds of republican propaganda aren't you?

Do I have to explain everything to you you’re like a child. The so-called Build Back Better plan is chockfull of socialist “redistribution of wealth” programs, which not only massively expands an already too big federal government, but according to the CBO, will add hundreds of billions of dollars to our national debt.

Not an issue for you I doubt very seriously that you pay any federal income tax ;)

ME Someone, Tue, 11/23/2021 - 22:27

Trump added 8 trillion to our national debt and you said nothing.

"hundreds of billions of dollars" is nothing comparatively speaking.

You are going to have to link me to these "“redistribution of wealth” programs", I cant find a single thing about them.

Here is what trump says about not paying any tax;

So you say me not paying any tax (lie) is bad, but trump admitting he doesn't pay any tax and you don't care? 

Except it’s not true. An analysis of Trump’s 1995 tax return, the one Hillary brought into question, showed Trump paid $38 million in income taxes on more than $150 million in income in 2005 for a  tax rate of about 25 percent ;)

ME Someone, Wed, 11/24/2021 - 15:04

Should be about double that. And you quote two different years a decade apart.

Either way, post a link and I will take a look. 

He's the one who said he doesn't pay taxes and that "makes him smart" 

Are you saying trump lied?

Not going to pass the Senate…not without doing away with the filibuster which also happens to be part of the democrat “plan” ;)
