President Biden’s mixed messages about immigration is partly to blame for the bloodshed and violence between illegals and Mexican police close to the southern border, as reported by one national security fellow.
Todd Bensman, a top national security fellow from the Center for Immigration Studies said to EpochTV’s Crossroads program that he saw a violent clash between illegals trying to force their way through the north to get to the U.S. border through Mexico, and police trying to keep them back.
He explained that Mexican police usually stretch a cord across the road where the caravans are trying to cross, and they fight them wearing riot gear.
“The migrants will put their youngest and toughest gangsters up front, with bottles, rocks, sticks, with nails in them and anything else, and they will charge these soldiers,” said Bensman, author of “America’s Covert Border War: The Untold Story of the Country’s Battle to Stop Jihadist Infiltration.”
“There will be complete clashes in the street. And many times it works, they get through and then everybody else just comes through and they are in, they get through.”
Bensman said that in the clash he saw a “surprise attack.”
“Mexicans were hiding inside the bushes beside the road, and then on a certain signal, they all just pounced behind and in front of them all. The police beat them silly. I mean, there is no other way to say it,” he said.
“There was a ton of blood and they had buses and billy clubs, beat them and forced them into the buses, and turned the buses around and shipped them to the Tapachula detention center,” Bensman said, “That is the cycle down there.”
“The bloodshed spilled into clashes really because of the Biden White House,” added Bensman.
Biden, who campaigned on rescinding Trump’s immigration orders, not only stopped construction of the wall but ended the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP), which forced a lot of asylum seekers to wait in Mexico.
The Biden White House rolled back many key Trump-era policies shortly after getting into office, including stopping the construction of the wall, ending the MPP program, and limiting the use of pandemic powers to allow illegal children who come without an adult to stay inside the United States.
