Hundreds of illegal immigrant families are being held in the outside parking lot of a Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) station because there is no room for them inside, or anywhere else. The illegal aliens are usually processed within 24 hours and then moved to a different facility. The massive surge at the border, has caused the system to break, yet Democrat Representative Ilhan Omar, who migrated from Somalia to the US as a child, blames the crisis on white nationalism. ‘Catch-and-release’ is back in full force and is getting worse thanks to the open-border bill passed by both Democrat and Republican members of Congress that Trump signed last month.

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who came to the U.S. as a refugee from Somalia when she was a child, is blaming “white nationalism” for Customs and Border Patrol being overwhelmed by massive illegal alien migration at the Southern border that has forced the agency to temporarily detain migrants outdoors while being processed.

“This is abhorrent and inhumane. It’s without a doubt a reflection of what white nationalism is doing to our country. As a country, we have to acknowledge that this is how people are being treated here and decide that we are better and we must do better.”

Bob Moore with Texas Monthly reported on the Border Patrol reaching “the breaking point”. Excerpt:

With hundreds of migrants huddled under a nearby bridge, the top U.S. border enforcement official on Wednesday made his strongest statement yet on the tens of thousands of migrant families now crossing the Mexican border. “Two weeks ago I briefed the media and testified in Congress that our immigration system was at the breaking point. That breaking point has arrived this week at the border,” Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin McAleenan said at a news conference near El Paso’s Paso del Norte Bridge.

…“On Monday and Tuesday, CBP started the day with over 12,000 migrants in our custody. As of this morning that number was 13,400. A high number for us is 4,000. A crisis level is 6,000. Thirteen thousand is unprecedented,” McAleenan said. Included in that number are hundreds of people being held beneath the Paso del Norte Bridge, behind a chain-link fence topped with barbed wire. CBP has set up a tent under the bridge to allow some of the migrants to get out of the elements. Migrants typically stay there less than 24 hours before being moved to other facilities, officials said. After McAleenan concluded his press conference, dozens of migrants pushed up against the fence as media came over to them. They cheered when a group of four protesters began chanting “No estan solos” (you are not alone) and other slogans.

For those among us who love Zionist rule so much , they should take some cues from Israel as to how THEY handle such matters.
Surrendering the US to the third world is NOT going to ”
Make America Great Again.”

Having a LIEING Jewish shill for a president isn’t going to help either.
