Coyotes Change Tactics—Co-opt Border Patrol
[Also by Juan Mann:
The evidence is in. Case
closed. There can be no denying that illegal aliens
entering the United States know more about the ins and
outs of the
federal immigration bureaucracy—and how to
manipulate it – than the average American.
An e-mail report I received recently from a
self-identified Customs and Border Protection (CBP)
inspector on the Mexican border says it all. The Agent reports a significant change of tactics by the
smugglers of non-Mexican illegals.

you might want to know how things are going on the
Texas-Mexico Border. Things are really bad. Everyday
it gets more ridiculous.
Immigration Inspector I talk to people all day long. In
one day I had 2 Hondurans, 1 Guatemalan and 2 El
Salvadorans all come up to me and tell me they had just
crossed the river illegally. They
all have just one request: “¿Me puedes dar un permiso
para entrar a los Estados Unidos?” [Can you
can give me a permit to enter the United States?]
have visas, they usually don`t even have a
passport. But, they all have the address of a friend
or family member that is already in the U.S. illegally
that they want to stay with. Most already know where
they are going to work and how much they will be
paid. As these people have already crossed illegally and
are entering the Port of Entry from the north, I am
obligated to call Border Patrol.
sure you all know what Border Patrol is obligated to
do—they must parole the illegal alien into the U.S., if
they are from countries
Other Than Mexico [OTMs], and give them a date to
appear in court for their Deportation hearing.

you ready for this? The Coyotes no longer simply drop
the illegals off on the other side of the river. For a
few extra dollars they take them right to the fence
of the Border Patrol station. When they arrive there
they give the B.P. Agents a courtesy call from their
cell phone and let them know how many people are waiting
for them outside…OTMs
have to be given a Parole into the U.S. They are most
times even given transportation to the bus station."
(Because Mexico is a
contiguous country, Mexican illegals can be more easily
deported. Rather than face detention, they usually
voluntarily go back—and try again.)
My correspondent continues:
“Several people, including the illegal aliens, have told
me how they cross the river. There is a little boat that
makes several crossings a day. I suspect he has a
regular schedule, to ferry people across.
Several have even told me, “Yo cruce en
la lanchita amarilla.” [I cross in the yellow

how many illegal aliens there are in our country.
They don`t understand what is happening to our country.”
This brazen change in tactics
proves that illegal alien smugglers and their lawyer
allies in the Treason Lobby are now coaching their
charges well. They know that by reporting to the Border
Patrol, the illegals get into the
system and can apply for employment authorization –
which is always granted pending their hearing. If they
choose to show up at their hearing, they have an
excellent chance of stalling deportation indefinitely.
They may even get legal status.
The root cause of this
madness is how the federal government goes about
deporting illegal aliens – above all, the U.S.
