According to US Border Patrol, hundreds of people from Bangladesh have been caught trying to come into the USA by illegally crossing the US-Mexican border:
It’s a growing concern for border patrol as Laredo has become the number 1 crossing point for Bangladeshi nationals, a country that has known ties to terrorism.
In a KGNS news special report, our Noraida Negron rides along with Border Patrol to find out why these cases are on the rise.
There is one specific area where they are crossing in South Laredo.
Agents have consistently detained 11 Bangladeshis during separate events.
That puts Laredo sector at the top, when it comes to having the highest apprehensions of Bangladeshi nationals compared to other border patrol sectors.
In 2017 they apprehended close to 180 Bangladeshi nationals, and since October of last year, there have been over 160 individuals caught.
Of all the Bangladeshis arrested, the chief says a small percentage have ties to terrorism.
Agents are also seeing a pattern in the stories this group of people are giving when picked up by federal agents.
By declaring they are minors they can take advantage of certain loopholes that allow citizenship in the US. (source)
The biggest question here is, how did these people get to Mexico to cross the border in the first place?
Bangladesh is a long ways from Mexico. By boat or flight, it’s not easy to get to Mexico. According to Google Flights, the cheapest flight from Dhaka, Bangladesh to Mexico City, Mexico is $1174 USD:
According to TradingEconomics.com, the average monthly salary for 2016 in Bangladesh is 12897 Bengali Takas, or about $155.40 USD, or $1864.80 USD per year.
It does not make sense to spend 63% of one’s gross annual income- nor is it likely possible- on a one-way plane ticket to hope to illegally cross the US Border, especially since there are many risks in crossing. Perhaps one many might be daring enough to risk his life, but several hundred? It doesn’t seem to make sense.
We know, for example, that the governments of Europe have intentionally opened their borders to allow passage of anybody, and we know that they have been equally complicit in directly facilitating the mass-movement of peoples from the Middle East, Africa, and Asia Minor into Europe. The reason for this, as we have emphasized, is to destabilize the nations of Europe in order to leverage support for nationalism and then translate the nationalism into militarism.
Two years ago, Shoebat.com asked the same question about thousands of Muslims and Africans allegedly waiting at the US-Mexican border. If indeed they are there (lets assume for the sake of argument that they are), then how could these people, who earn almost nothing for their income, able to get to Mexico from West Africa? We concluded that it would be materially impossible for such a move to take place in such a large number by these people unless their movement was being directly subsidized and guided by another person from without.
Something doesn’t seem right here. This is not to deny that Bengalis are coming over the border, but rather, to ask how they got to Mexico and are able to cross in the first place.
Regardless of the reason, remember that the USA does not care about border and “immigration” in an objective sense just as it does not care about Islam, terrorism, or other real issues, but is using it as it is doing with the others for the purpose of establishing a lever for transforming domestic and foreign policy. It is the reason why “the wall” will never be built, and why the only thing which one should expect is the maintenance of the status quo, which is a continual drive for more militarism and the expense of the rights of the people in the pursuit of power for a few at all costs.
