U.S. Amnesty Shelters Revealed: Law Enforcement Ordered to Stand Down (Video)
El Paso, Texas -- The El Paso Rescue Mission shelter stands approximately 100 yards from the U.S./Mexico border. Border Patrol agents have been ordered by their higher-ups not to go there and enforce U.S. laws on the property, according to the Vice President of the Local 1929 Border Patrol Council, Stu Harris.
“They will not allow Border Patrol agents to go onto the property to enforce U.S. laws,” he said. He further stated that the border fence in the area was left unfinished and that another fence between the border and the shelter was left damaged and opened (as shown in the video below). “We have about 100 panels of border fence just sitting there at our nearby training area,” he said.
The shelter, part of a broad local coalition to help the society’s most vulnerable, does not just serve U.S. citizens or others who are legally in the U.S. The coalition website indicates that 65% of the individuals they serve speak English as a first language; it does not specify the percentage who are legal immigrants. One of the groups in the coalition specifically aids “agricultural workers,” and its website states it serves “...workers, regardless of their legal status in this country,” and that illegal immigrants “have the right to advance their economic, social and political status through vigorous advocacy of fundamental rights.” The website further states: “Born of decades of neglect and poverty in the fields of America, this movement is a response to the need for social change.”
Such “law-free” zones on U.S. soil are not restricted to the border area. They exist across the U.S. One example is Austin, Texas’ Casa Marianella. The group provides aid to “undocumented worker communities,” and does so in plain sight. It not only openly discusses its shelter for illegal immigrants and “asylum seekers,” but during my own experiences helping the FBI combat human trafficking, it was common knowledge that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) routinely visits the center -- but does not enforce U.S. laws on the center’s grounds. These amnesty shelters are not alone.
The exploitation of U.S. efforts to help the world's most vulnerable with a program for asylum was recently discussed here on Breitbart News. In my own experiences helping human trafficking victims, both with the FBI and in private efforts as a citizen, I began to see a trend in often left-of-center open-borders advocates attempting to exploit our nation's aid for human trafficking victims to present any and all illegal immigrants they helped as being "human trafficking victims." Such efforts are increasing, and many of the open borders groups who have an exemption from U.S. laws are using "asylum" and "human trafficking victim" as a means of achieving backdoor amnesty.
