On Monday morning, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen ordered an “emergency surge” of border patrol agents amid the illegal alien invasion.
In a statement, DHS Chief Nielson ordered CBP Commissioner Kevin McAleenan to implement “emergency surge operations” to reallocate 750 officers to the border.
“The crisis at our border is worsening, and DHS will do everything in its power to end it,” Nielsen said in a written statement. “We will not stand idly by while Congress fails to act yet again, so all options are on the table. We will immediately redeploy hundreds of CBP personnel to the border to respond to this emergency. We will urgently pursue additional reinforcements from within DHS and the interagency. And we will require those seeking to enter the United States to wait in Mexico until an immigration court has reviewed their claims.”
The Hill reported:
Nielsen has also directed CBP to expand the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP), a DHS plan to return migrants to Mexico while they wait for their day in immigration court.
Under Nielsen’s directive, CBP will return hundreds more migrants per day to Mexico, including those caught at or between points of entry, according to DHS.
Nielsen further ordered the agency to plan to expand the MPP plan beyond California and Texas, the locations where it currently operates.
President Trump tweeted late Sunday night, “Homeland Security is being soooo very nice, but not for long!”
The Democrats are allowing a ridiculous asylum system and major loopholes to remain as a mainstay of our immigration system. Mexico is likewise doing NOTHING, a very bad combination for our Country. Homeland Security is being sooo very nice, but not for long!

The US Border Patrol is being forced to restart “catch-and-release” at the border because there isn’t enough bed space to hold illegal aliens and under the law, they cannot be immediately sent back across the border.
A record surge at the US-Mexico border is forcing border patrol agents to directly release illegal aliens into communities for the first time since the Bush administration.
Over 100,000 illegal aliens will be detained at the US-Mexico border in March alone — this is an invasion.
President Trump recently declared a national emergency to secure funding for a border wall and both Democrats and Republicans are pushing back against the President.
Huge caravans of Central American migrants have marched up through Mexico to the US border which has overwhelmed the asylum system — and another caravan is on the way.
The US is projected to add about 1.5 million illegal aliens (Democrat voters) to the American population by the end of 2019, should the current rates of border crossing and visa overstays continue, reported Breitbart.
The situation at the border is so dire that even Obama’s DHS Chief Jeh Johnson acknowledged there “truly is a crisis” at the southern border.
