Biden DHS allegedly facilitating the ‘controlled flow’ of migrants into US via encrypted communications with Mexico

As the end to Title 42 draws alarmingly close, President Biden’s Department of Homeland Security is allegedly using an encrypted WhatsApp channel to communicate with unarmed Mexican immigration officers and tell them when it’s safe for illegal migrants to swim across the Rio Grande and into Brownsville, Texas.

According to the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), the “controlled-flow” system marks a “striking level of collusion” between the Biden administration and Mexico that “demonstrates formal acquiescence to illegal immigration and an official willingness to accommodate mass illegal immigration rather than stopping, blocking, or deterring it, as required by law.”

In recent days, drone footage showing an endless line of migrants heading for the border has shocked social media.

“Over the course of several recent days in this northeastern Mexican city when perhaps 3,000 immigrants a day swam over to Brownsville with no opposition on either side, a curious pattern became evident,” CIS reports. “At some sort of signal from the Mexican immigration officers, a group of about 100-150 from the crowd would suddenly stand in unison and rush down the riverbank, past the immigration officers, and swim over to America.”

“It turns out that this pattern was far from happenstance,” writes CIS’s Senior National Security Fellow Todd Bensman. “The Center for Immigration Studies asked several of the Mexican immigration officers what was going on and learned that President Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security has been coordinating these mass swims with Mexico’s immigration service, INM, at high levels on an encrypted Whatsapp channel.”

According to the Mexican officers, their senior officers were keeping the U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials apprised of how many migrants were gathered and ready to make a swim for it at any given time.

“We’re letting them know that there’s a group of people ready to cross,” said one officer.

Reports Bensman:

The Americans on the other side would ask the Mexicans to hold back the migrants – not because such crossings are illegal and should be blocked and obstructed, but only until the Americans had finished processing the last batch into the country through Brownsville. Once the Americans felt they could take in more, they message the Mexicans that “they are ready to receive them.” Then, senior officials would radio the on-ground immigration officers, all of whom are equipped with radios.

Next, the officers signal to the waiting crowd to go forward and, once they figure enough are in the water, they cut off the rest and push and cajole them back into line until the Americans signal they’re ready again.

 

Reporting from Matamoros, Mexico, Bensman says, “Mexico seemed to signal a willingness to use muscle if necessary to maintain the controlled-flow arrangement. Late Tuesday, as the crowd grew visibly restive, a squad of armed Mexican National Guard showed up and began patrolling the line.”

The shocking report follows news that DHS warned illegal immigrants on Monday that a “targeted enforcement operation” would be staged in Texas to remove or detain them.

The warning came just hours before the operation was set to begin in El Paso, “where approximately 2,200 migrants are currently camped out or living on the streets a few blocks from major ports of entry that connect the city with Juárez, Mexico,” American Wire News reported.

The news sparked outrage from the Border Patrol Union, which tweeted, “Nothing like publicly announcing that dangerous people will be arrested, while warning them ahead of time exactly where to run and hide to avoid arrest.”

“This entire operation is a sad joke – another pandering PR stunt,” the National Border Patrol Council, which represents approximately 18,000 Border Patrol agents and support personnel, stated. “Serious law enforcement leaders don’t behave this way.”
