More asylum seekers in Mexico

“More asylum seekers in Mexico” is an article in an English news source in Mexico about the rising number of immigrants trying to get into the US but staying in Mexico.

For many, Mexico is becoming a destination rather than a transit country.

In 5 months, 41,000 migrants have sought asylum in Mexico, 16 more than in all of last year

The Mexican Commission for Refugee Assistance (Comar) registered 41,195 applications for asylum in the first five months of the year, 16 more than in all of 2020, when migration fell due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The figure is 68% higher than that recorded in 2019, when Comar received 24,551 requests between January and May. New records for asylum applications were set in March, April and May this year with more than 9,000 requests in each month….

“We’re seeing statistics that are going to exceed the historic record of 80,000 refugees [in one year],”…

While President Joe Biden completely works against the established law on immigrants in the United States, he miscalculates tremendously what he is doing, and the effect he is causing around the world. People in other countries understand that he is publicly lying and privately holding the immigration door wide open. I present a few musing here from my point of view as a missionary.

Firstly, Biden and the Democrats appear to believe that because of what they are doing (giving free access to entry into the US and citizenship and voting rights as well as a lot of public assistance) that these immigrants are going to vote for the Democrats. I know for a fact that some of them, such as those coming from Communist and Socialist countries, are exactly the opposite. They understand what Biden and the Democrats are doing because it happened to them in Cuba, Venezuela, Chile, North Korean, China, Russia, etc. They will fight the dragging of the United States into Communist tooth and nail.

While a lot of people are not so “dyed in the wool as to which side they will tilt towards if they get into the US, people in Third World countries have a lot of contempt for their own governments back home, and that is carried over when they enter the US.

Secondly, this open door immigration policy has a lot of consequences of the US. For example, in this article, people try to go all the way into the US, but fail. Nobody seems to be crossing the Mexico-United States border these days without paying the drug cartels to take them across. On the Mexican side of the border, these cartels give a pass (like a plastic wrist ID given to patients in a hospital) and what is lacking from the US Border patrol, these cartels make up. They are thorough and intensively sweeping the Mexican side of the border, and they make sure that nobody gets near the border without one of these passes from them, and that it is a recent pass.

How do you get one of these passes? That changes daily, but the last I heard it cost $13,000 US dollars for 1 month. If you don’t get across in that month, there is a small fee, I think $100 dollars, and you get a second month. But without one of these passes that is still good, you are likely to get beat
