The Border Crisis Is A Money-Making Machine For Smugglers

While Communists and comrades in the deep state media complex demand access to President Donald J. Trump’s tax returns, I say let us focus on the elephant in the room, i.e., the assets of every politician, ex-bureaucrat and deep state goons  blocking the President’s attempts to secure our borders along with the organizations and fake religious organizations in the business of refugee resettlement.

Although exact figures are unknown—and likely unknowable—any back-of-the-envelope calculation will give you an idea of the amount of money changing hands along the migration pipeline.

For example, Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin McAleenan said last week that the agency was on pace to apprehend more than 100,000 migrants in March. Assuming each migrant pays, on average, $4,000 for safe passage over the border, that’s about $400 million—just for those apprehended crossing illegally in March.
