Below is an opinion, written by Federal Court Judge, Andrew S. Hanen in 2013, calling out the Obama administration for aiding and abetting the trafficking of children across the border by means of the Mexican smuggling cartels. Biden has resurrected Obama’s program of using the Department of Homeland Security for the trafficking of children into the United States. Tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands will be trafficked like this just in this year (2021) with the direct, illegal aid of the U.S. Government. 10-
Here is an excerpt from the 10-page opinion:
This Court is quite concerned with the apparent policy of the Department of Homeland Security (hereinafter ”DHS”) of completing the criminal mission of individuals who are violating the border security of the United States. Customs and Border Protection agents stopped the Defendant at the border inspection point. She was arrested, and the child was taken into custody. The DHS officials were notified that Salmeron Santos instigated this illegal conduct. Yet, instead of arresting Salmeron Santos for instigating the conspiracy to violate our border security laws, the DHS delivered the child to her, thus successfully completing the mission of the criminal conspiracy. It did not arrest. her. It did not prosecute her. It did not even initiate deportation proceedings for her. This DHS policy is a dangerous course of action.
The DHS, instead of enforcing our border security laws, actually assisted the criminal conspiracy in achieving Its illegal goals. The Government’s actions were not done in connection with a sting operation or a controlled delivery situation. Rather, the actions it took were directly in furtherance of Y.P.S.’s illegal presence in United States. It completed the mission of the conspiracy initiated by Salmeron Santos. In summary, instead of enforcing the laws of the United States, the Government took direct steps to help the individuals who violated it. A private citizen would, and should, be prosecuted for this conduct.
Below is complete, 10-page opinion by Judge Hanen, which can be downloaded for sharing or printing. Interested people should study the entire document and make sure they understand it all. The Government does this as standard practice in tens of thousands of cases per year. Also, the law is being ignored with other aspects of illegal immigration and the asylum process. This is just one example of how the Government has decided to not enforce the immigration law and actually help criminals violate the law. This is part of the reason why hundreds of thousands of illegal border crossers are massing on the border.
I should add that today this case probably would not even go to court, because most coyotes (human smugglers) are not prosecuted any longer. Generally, they are only prosecuted if there is something exceptional about the case, such as a large group of people are smuggled or other serious crimes are committed.
The $6,000 Salmeron Santos had to pay the cartel to smuggle the girl most likely came from illegal activities. The $2,500 she borrowed can be expected to be paid back by working for the cartel in the US. So, this and similar practices greatly enrich the cartels and expand their influence in the U.S.
The judge also seems to be saying that the Flores Settlement Agreement is expired. Flores is used as the legal the basis for catch and release. If it is expired they have no reason to release family units with children into the US, either.
