A leaked government report shared with U.S. Border Patrol agents warns that Venezuela’s socialist government is releasing violent criminals and sending them to America in migrant caravans.
The Department of Homeland Security intelligence report, obtained by Breitbart, says that murderers and rapists are among the released convicts.
Venezuela sending criminals to the southern border
The report said that Venezuelan criminals were known to be traveling with migrant caravans departing from Mexico as recently as July.
Most Venezuelans are being released into the United States, a source said. There is no reliable way of identifying which migrants have criminal backgrounds because of a lack of diplomacy between the U.S. and Venezuela.
“Unless we apprehend someone who voluntarily tells us they have committed a violent crime in Venezuela, we can only guess and that doesn’t work well,” the source told Breitbart. “They will more than likely be released.”
Venezuelan migrants have been in the news lately after Florida governor Ron DeSantis (R) sent 50 of them to the rich liberal enclave of Martha’s Vineyard, where they stayed for about a day before being promptly relocated to a neighboring military base.
Roughly 150,000 Venezuelans have been apprehended at the border this year, a threefold increase from 50,000 last year and a thirty-fold increase from about 5,000 in 2020.
Biden’s criminal negligence
A memo obtained by the Daily Caller warns that Venezuelans will immigrate to the U.S. in larger numbers because of a “misunderstood perception of temporary protected status.” Biden recently renewed temporary protected status (TPS) for Venezuelans for 18 months.
Venezuelans will be “pulled to the United States by the perception that once they reach the border, they have a greater chance of remaining in the United States,” the paper said. Gee, where did they get that idea from?
This fiscal year, more than 2 million illegal immigrants were apprehended at the southern border, another Biden record.
Just this week Biden said that deporting migrants from Venezuela, Cuba, and Nicaragua is “not rational.” He also claimed that most migrants flooding the border are “fleeing communism,” implying the situation is out of his hands.
Instead of doing his job, Biden is focused on coming up with excuses. His criminal negligence is going to get innocent people hurt.
