Illegal Immigrants Come and Go

One interview exposed it, who invented it?

Is it misleading news to suppress this and so much else.

Mark Morgan, the U.S. Border Patrol Chief described the "Voluntary Return" program our Border Patrol uses (under Mr. Hussein-Obama, C-SPAN, 12/5/16) to stop illegal immigration from Mexico.

This is designed to handle people who criminally sneak into this country, not at a port of entry with documentation or a visa, but by clandestinely crossing the border in the wilderness.

Voluntary Return means the agents simply put the person back on the other side, into Mexico. Because they make careful digital identification records, agents can find a person attempting to sneak back in four or five times -- in the same day. You read that right. This is the policy currently in place. The person stops trying to sneak in and evade authorities when finally successful, and here. Agents no longer find this person trying to sneak in.

The report included Sen. James Lankford, (R-Okla.) asking, how many times should a Voluntary Return violator be allowed back in? Mr. Morgan replied without hesitation, as you might hope he would, "zero." Mr. Hussein-Obama was not available for comment.

This is nothing new. Probably 80% or more of what the press calls "deportations" are voluntary returns (V/Rs). True deportation is a court proceeding and formally deporting every alien caught at the border would clog the Immigration Court system so that people under deportation proceedings would be either incarcerated or out on bond for years awaiting a hearing. Deportations also cost money, and the alien pays for his own V/R. Formally deporting every apprehended alien would financially destroy the DHS. V/R is the only practical way to remove a large number of illegal aliens from the United States. In some jurisdictions, a certain number of V/Rs automatically makes the alien eligible for a formal deportation hearing.
